FACTORS YOU MUST CONSIDER IN PURCHASING COINS
RISK: The purchase of coins is highly speculative and involves substantial risk. As in other markets, coin prices can be extremely volatile and will rise and fall depending upon market conditions. Therefore, before purchasing coins, you should first have adequate cash reserves and other assets to absorb a potentially significant loss.
HOLDING PERIOD: Historically, few coins have appreciated dramatically in the short term. Therefore, purchasers should recognize that it may well be necessary for them to hold coins for a 3-5 year period, or even a 5-10 year period, to have any chance of realizing a significant gain.
8. Purchasing Coins from Seller constitutes acknowledgment that buyer has read all of these terms and conditions and accepts them. Seller reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions of sale and buyer should review them periodically for any possible updates or modifications.
