Risk Disclosure for Digital Assets

Investing in digital assets involves a variety of risks that are distinct from traditional financial products. Market participants considering digital asset investments should be aware of the following risks:

Market Volatility: Digital assets are known for their high volatility. Prices can rapidly increase or decrease within a short period due to factors such as market sentiment, technological advancements, macroeconomic trends, and regulatory developments. This volatility can lead to significant financial gains or losses.

Regulatory Risk: The regulatory landscape for digital assets is evolving. Changes in laws or regulations can have a profound impact on the digital asset market, affecting the legality, use, and value of these assets. Investors should be aware of the regulatory environment in their jurisdiction and any changes that may occur.

Smart Contract Vulnerabilities: Digital assets and DeFi platforms often rely on smart contracts which are susceptible to flaws or vulnerabilities. These can lead to the loss or theft of digital assets.

Network Congestion: High demand on blockchain networks can lead to increased transaction fees or delayed transaction confirmations, impacting the timely execution of trades.

Cybersecurity Risks: Digital asset transactions are subject to risks such as hacking, phishing, and other types of cyber fraud. Loss of private keys, malware, and other security breaches can lead to irrecoverable loss of assets.

Liquidity Risks: Some digital assets may suffer from limited liquidity, making it difficult to execute large transactions without significant price impact. Illiquid markets can pose a risk in terms of entering or exiting positions.

Counterparty and Credit Risk: In peer-to-peer lending or borrowing, there’s the risk that the counterparty may default on their obligations. Similarly, platforms facilitating these transactions may also carry risks of failure or default.

Operational Risk: This includes risks associated with transaction processing, custody, and wallet management. Errors in transferring assets, failures in maintaining wallet security, or loss of access to wallets can result in the permanent loss of digital assets.

Legal Risks: Investors may face legal challenges, including disputes over ownership of digital assets and the enforceability of contracts. Also, global variations in the legal treatment of digital assets can lead to jurisdictional risks.

Market Manipulation Risks: The digital asset markets are relatively nascent and can be susceptible to manipulation, resulting in artificial price movements that can impact investment value.

Valuation and Taxation: Valuation of digital assets can be challenging due to the lack of standardization. Furthermore, tax treatment of digital assets is complex and evolving, with implications for reporting and liability.


Self-Custodial Digital Assets – Best Practices

Managing self-custodial digital assets requires a comprehensive understanding and implementation of best practices to ensure security, efficiency, and compliance. The following guidelines are designed to assist market participants with navigating the complexities of self-custody:

Initial Setup and Wallet Selection:

Understanding Wallet Types: Evaluate the pros and cons of different types of wallets – hardware, software, and multi-signature wallets. Hardware wallets offer offline storage, reducing exposure to online threats. Software wallets, while convenient, are more susceptible to cyber threats. Multi-signature wallets provide an added layer of security by requiring multiple approvals for transactions.

Selection Criteria: Choose a wallet based on your investment size, transaction frequency, and security preferences. Consider the reputation, user interface, and support offered by wallet providers.

Secure Storage and Backup:

Private Key Management: Safeguard your private keys. Never share them and store them securely, preferably in a physical form (like paper or a metal backup) in a safe location.

Backup Procedures: Regularly back up your wallet, including seed phrases. Store backups in multiple secure locations to mitigate the risk of physical damage or loss.

Cybersecurity Measures:

Strong Passwords and Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Use strong, unique passwords for wallet access and enable 2FA where available.

Secure Internet Practices: Avoid using public Wi-Fi for transactions. Regularly update your device’s security software and use trusted VPN services.

Phishing Awareness: Be vigilant about phishing attempts. Do not click on suspicious links and verify the authenticity of communications.


Transaction Best Practices:

Address Double-Checking: Always double-check addresses before executing transactions. Transfers to incorrect addresses are irreversible.

Small Test Transactions: Perform a small test transaction when transferring large amounts or using a new address.


Terms of Service

The following Terms of Service (“TOS”) will apply to the agreement to provide service between My Crypto Advisor LLC (“Company”), and the individual or business entity identified on the order form for said services (“Customer”). These terms, along with the attached “Disclaimer,” shall hereinafter be referred to as the “Agreement” between the two above mentioned parties.

Service Rates

Connecting to Virtual Consultation Sessions
Prior to the scheduled session time, the Customer can connect to the meeting through the meeting link provided in the email. Failure of the Customer to locate the email and/or access the meeting link prior to the Customer’s scheduled session does not obligate the Company to provide the customer with a refund.

Customer Service inquiries can be made by emailing [email protected]. Requests will be prioritized at the discretion of the Company.
