Risk Involved

The Website is based on a GameFi ecosystem which uses cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and blockchain technology to create a virtual gaming environment. The same nvolves significant risk which you should be aware of. Prices of these virtual currencies do and can fluctuate on any given day. Due to such price fluctuations, you may increase or lose value in your assets (in part or in total) at any given moment. Any currency (virtual or not) may be subject to large swings in value and may even become worthless. There is an inherent risk that losses will occur as a result of engaging, dealing and interacting with the GameFi ecosystem on the platform. Cryptocurrency has certain risks not shared with official currencies or goods or commodities in a market. Unlike most currencies, which are backed by governments or other legal entities, or by commodities such as gold or silver, Cryptocurrency is unique and backed by technology and trust. There is no central bank that can take corrective measure to protect the value of Cryptocurrency in a crisis or issue more currency. Instead, Cryptocurrency is an as-yet autonomous and largely unregulated worldwide network. Users put their trust in a digital, decentralized and partially anonymous system that relies on peer-to-peer networking and cryptography to maintain its integrity. Cryptocurrency is susceptible to irrational/rational fluctuations or loss of confidence, which could collapse demand relative to supply in a variety of situations. Dealing with virtual / digital currencies namely, Cryptocurrencies, NFTs and other such currencies makes it more susceptible to online fraud which may involve hacking of the user’s account. In such a case, Zone shall not be held responsible or liable for any such occurrence or loss of any information or digital currency.
