These terms and conditions (“Terms”) are a binding agreement between DigitalBits Foundation and the person, persons, or entity (“You” or “Your”) using the website (“Website”) or service, software, or application (“Software”).
The following definitions apply in these Terms:
“DigitalBits Foundation,” “we”, “us” and “our” mean the DigitalBits Foundation and its affiliates.
“AstraX,” “AstraX Wallet,” the “Wallet” mean a, non-custodial (meaning the cryptographic keys of the user is stored on the user’s own device) wallet software to be used for transactions on the DigitalBits network.

IF YOU LOSE ACCESS TO YOUR WALLET OR YOUR ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEYS AND YOU HAVE NOT SEPARATELY STORED A BACKUP OF YOUR WALLET AND CORRESPONDING PASSWORD, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY CRYPTOCURRENCY YOU HAVE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT WALLET WILL BECOME INACCESSIBLE.
All transaction requests are irreversible. The authors of the Software, employees and affiliates of DigitalBits Foundation, copyright holders, and DigitalBits Foundation cannot retrieve Your private keys or passwords if You lose or forget them and cannot guarantee transaction confirmation as they do not have control over the network.
The AstraX wallet source code is under the MIT License (MIT) , which contains the below disclaimer reprinted here for convenience:
THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING FROM, OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE OR THE USE OR OTHER DEALINGS IN THE SOFTWARE.
DigitalBits Foundation provides the Software solely on these Terms and on the condition that You accept and comply with them. By using the Software You (a) accept these Terms and agree that You are legally bound by its terms; and (b) represent and warrant that: (x) You are of legal age to enter into a binding agreement; and (y) if You are a corporation, governmental organization or other legal entity, You have the right, power and authority to enter into an agreement on behalf of the corporation, governmental organization or other legal entity and bind them to these Terms.
This Software functions as a free multi-signature digital wallet. The Software does not constitute an account where We or other third parties serve as financial intermediaries or custodians of Your DigitalBits assets.
While the Software has undergone thorough testing and continues to be improved, We cannot guarantee the Software to be entirely free of bugs. You acknowledge that Your use of this Software is at Your own discretion and in compliance with all applicable laws. You are responsible for safekeeping Your passwords, private key pairs, PINs, and any other codes You use to access the Software.
The Software is evolving and You may be required to accept or install updates to the Software, or update third-party software (i.e., browsers or OS) in order to keep using the Software or Services or access their latest features, including security updates.

4. License to Use
Subject to Your compliance with these Terms, and solely as consistent with the AstraX MIT license (available at https://mit-license.org/), we grant You a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to download, view, copy and display solely in connection with your permitted use of the Software.
5. Cryptocurrency Risks
Cryptocurrency assets are subject to high market risks and volatility. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investments in blockchain assets may result in loss of part or all of your investment. Please do your own research and use caution. You are solely responsible for Your actions on the DigitalBits network. DigitalBits Foundation is not responsible for your investment losses. Cryptocurrency assets and the DigitalBits “decentralized exchange” are unregulated and do not have governmental oversight.
6. The DigitalBits Network (separate from AstraX Wallet)
AstraX Wallet is not an exchange. AstraX Wallet is only a user interface to the DigitalBits network and does not operate the DigitalBits network. AstraX Wallet is unable to control the actions of others on the DigitalBits network. When using AstraX Wallet, you are directly communicating with the DigitalBits Frontier API operated by The DigitalBits Foundation. Transactions on the DigitalBits network are irreversible.
7. AstraX Wallet does not Endorse Anything
AstraX Wallet does NOT endorse ANY asset on the DigitalBits network. Asset “listings” on AstraX Wallet are NOT endorsements. AstraX Wallet is a software client ONLY and does NOT conduct any independent diligence or review of any asset. DigitalBits is an open system meaning that scams and market manipulators may exist. Prices shown on AstraX Wallet are for informational purposes and do not imply that they can actually be redeemed for a certain price.

9. Third-party Products and Services
The Services may incorporate, or may provide access to, applications or materials that are hosted by another party, including (a) crypto assets, such as digitalbits (XDB), (b) cryptocurrency exchanges (for token-to-token exchanges), (c) Non-Fungible Token marketplaces. You understand and agree that all cryptocurrency exchanges provided through the Services are executed by third party service providers, and that DigitalBits does not itself directly exchange virtual currencies. Access to third party API Providers may be geo-blocked for residents of certain countries and or jurisdictions. There can be no assurance that any security measures that we or our third party service providers have implemented will be effective against current or future security threats. While we take steps in an effort to protect the security of our platform and the availability, integrity, confidentiality and security of our data, our security measures or those of our third party providers could fail and result in unauthorized access to or use of our platform or unauthorized, accidental or unlawful access to, or disclosure, modification, misuse, loss or destruction of, our or our customers’ data. Private keys may also be compromised if customers choose to store their private keys in non-secure systems, such as third party email services, which may be susceptible to security breaches and security incidents, despite our efforts to discourage our customers from engaging in these practices. Although such incidents are outside of our control and do not relate to any insecurity or vulnerability on the part of the Services, customers may nevertheless blame or become dissatisfied with the Services as a result of these negative experiences. Do not share any credential, private key, or other sensitive information with any third party without validating their legitimacy. Third party API providers are available to you, subject to the terms and conditions of each third party provider. To the extent third party API providers have terms that differ from these Terms, you may be required to agree to those terms in order to access their software, site, or services. We do not control the terms, policies, or performance of any third party, and are not responsible for any performance, or failure to perform, of any third party software, site, or services, including exchange rates, processing of transactions, and similar activities. We do not provide customer support for transactions performed on third party API provider’s software, site, or services. When you leave the AstraX software and access the third party’s software, their terms of service govern the transaction
