Coinpass is fully committed to preventing money laundering and terrorist financing and we will not support digital assets that through technology obscure or make transmission records unidentifiable. We may not be able to return any unsupported cryptocurrency deposits in cases where it is not possible to verify the sender’s wallet address and therefore, if you transfer an unsupported digital asset to your Coinpass account and/or we cannot identify the sender of the deposit received, we will deem the deposit not to have taken place and we may, in our sole discretion obtain and retain the unsupported digital asset, on the grounds that the identity of the sender cannot be verified for Anti Money Laundering purposes.
Coinpass only supports those cryptocurrencies or other tokens listed on our fees schedule page and we are unable to process any transaction made using any other unsupported cryptocurrency or network.
The User's Coinpass Account E-Wallet enables the User to give instructions to Coinpass to make deposits, withdrawals, and transfers:
The User is prohibited from making transfers from or into their Coinpass Account E-Wallet (whether in FIAT currency or Digital Assets) into or from any third-party online digital wallet outside of the Coinpass Platform or bank account or other payment methods.
All FIAT currency balances are stored by Coinpass at a third-party banking provider for safekeeping.
The User acknowledges and agrees that Coinpass is not acting as the User’s broker, intermediary, agent, or advisor or in any fiduciary capacity when executing E-Currency Transactions and any communication between the parties or information provided to the User by Coinpass shall not be considered or construed as advice.
The underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Assets supported on the Coinpass Platform are not owned or controlled by Coinpass. The underlying protocols are open-source software that may be used, copied, modified, and distributed by any individual generally without restriction. Coinpass shall not be responsible for the operation of the underlying software protocols and Coinpass do not guarantee their functionality or security.
The User acknowledges that the underlying software protocols relating to any Digital Assets stored by the User in their Coinpass Account E-Wallet may undergo material changes that impact the value, functionality, availability, appearance, name, or any other characteristics or attributes of the Digital Asset.
Coinpass shall not be liable for any loss of value the User experiences as a result of changes to how any Digital Asset operates, including but not limited to changes to the underlying software protocols.
Coinpass shall not be responsible for notifying the User of proposed or actual changes to the underlying software protocols, or for providing information or guidance as to the impact of any changes. It is the User's sole responsibility to understand any changes to the underlying software protocols and to determine whether they will continue to hold the Digital Asset in their Coinpass Account E-Wallet or continue to make E-Currency Transactions involving that Digital Asset.
Coinpass may, where possible, provide the User with notices or alerts in relation to the underlying software protocols. It is the User’s responsibility to make themselves aware of, and consider how to deal with, upcoming changes. In the event of a change to the underlying software protocols, Coinpass may, at its sole discretion, temporarily suspend transactions and trading of any Digital Assets, or any other such steps that Coinpass decides are necessary, to protect assets held on the Coinpass Platform.
Coinpass reserves the right to withhold or terminate support for any supported Digital Asset or any other digital asset created as a result of changes to the underlying software protocols.
Coinpass will process E-Currency Transactions in accordance with the instructions Coinpass receives from the User. Digital Asset withdrawal and deposit instructions must be made with a Coinpass Account E-Wallet under the direct control of or owned by that User.
The User agrees to verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to Coinpass. Coinpass shall not be liable or have any responsibility for ensuring that the information provided by the User is accurate.
E-Currency Transactions cannot be reversed once Coinpass has submitted the instructions to transfer Digital Assets from the User’s Coinpass Account E-Wallet to the destination using the relevant Digital Asset network.
Once submitted to a Digital Asset network, an E-Currency Transaction is not complete until confirmation from the Digital Asset network has been received by Coinpass. Until confirmation is received, the E-Currency Transaction is in a pending state. Digital Assets associated with E-Currency Transactions that are in a pending state will be designated accordingly and will not be included in the User’s Coinpass Account E-Wallet balance.
Once the User executes an E-Currency Transaction, an electronic confirmation will be sent to the User, save that the User agrees that Coinpass' failure to provide such confirmation shall not prejudice or invalidate the terms of the E-Currency Transaction.
Coinpass may at its sole discretion refuse to process or suspend or cancel any pending E-Currency Transaction as required by any applicable law or any court or other authority to which Coinpass is subject in any jurisdiction, or where Coinpass reasonably believes that an E-Currency Transaction is or may be unlawful, or contrary to applicable law, or good practice or inconsistent with Coinpass’ anti-money laundering and terrorist financing policies.
E-Currency Transactions are available only in connection with Digital Assets supported by the Coinpass Platform. The User is prohibited from using or attempting to use their Coinpass Account E-Wallet to store, send, request, or receive Digita Assets in any form that the Coinpass Platform does not support. Coinpass assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt by the User to use their Coinpass Account Digital Wallet for unsupported Digital Assets.
Coinpass may charge a network fee to process an E-Currency Transaction, calculated at Coinpass' sole discretion. Coinpass will always notify the User of the network fee at or before the time the User authorizes the E-Currency Transaction. A full list of Coinpass' fees can be found in our Fee Schedule.
Coinpass securely stores Digital Assets private keys, which are the means by which the User can securely approve an E-Currency Transaction. Coinpass securely stores private keys under its control using a combination of online and offline storage. As a result, it may be necessary for Coinpass to retrieve certain information from offline storage in order to facilitate an E-Currency Transaction in accordance with the User’s instructions. The User, therefore acknowledges that this may delay the initiation or crediting of E-Currency Transactions.
All Digital Assets held in Coinpass Account E-Wallets are held by Coinpass on a custodian basis on behalf of the Users. Therefore:
Coinpass will not issue any replacement Digital Assets in the event that the User’s Digital Assets, private key or password is lost, stolen, malfunctioning, destroyed or otherwise inaccessible.
The Digital Currency Exchange Service enablesthe User to buy Digital Assets using:
The User may buy or sell supported Digital Assets via their Coinpass Account E-Wallet. The purchase or sale authorizes Coinpass to debit or credit the Coinpass Account accordingly. Coinpass will attempt to reflect the purchase or sale as promptly as possible.
The User may buy supported Digital Assets by linking a valid payment method, such as a credit or debit card, to their Coinpass Account E-Wallet. The User authorizes Coinpass to debit funds using the User’s selected payment method(s) to complete their purchase. Although Coinpass will attempt to deliver the Digital Assets to the User as promptly as possible, funds must be cleared in the User’s Coinpass Account E-Wallet before the status of their E-Currency Transaction is shown as complete and the Digital Assets are delivered to the User’s Coinpass Account E-Wallet.
The User may sell Digital Assets in exchange for Legal Tender supported by Coinpass.
The User has the option to buy or sell Digital Assets by clicking the "Buy" or "Sell" button respectively on the Coinpass Platform. The User agrees that clicking either of the buttons authorizes Coinpass to initiate a transaction at the quoted buy price or sell price and to charge the User the relevant fees associated with the transaction.
The User cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as complete or pending. If the payment is not successful for any reason, including where the payment method has insufficient funds, the User authoriszes Coinpass, in its sole discretion, to cancel the transaction or to debit the User's other payment methods, including balances on the User’s Coinpass Account E-Wallet, in any amount necessary to complete the transaction.
Coinpass will make all reasonable efforts to fulfil the User's instructions pursuant to terms listed under Exchange Services. If Coinpass is unable to fulfil the User's instructions, Coinpass will endeavour to notify the User.
The User acknowledges that the buy price exchange rate may not be the same as the selling price exchange rate at any given time and that Coinpass in its sole discretion may add a margin or ‘spread’ to the quoted Exchange Rate. The User agrees to accept the relevant Exchange Rate when you authorise a transaction.
Coinpass does not guarantee that the User will be able to buy or sell Digital Assets at any particular price or time. The User acknowledges that the Digital Assets are subject to price fluctuations and that Coinpass has no obligation to provide particular prices to buy or sell Digital Assets.
The purchase or sale of Digital Assets using User Funds or Legal Tender is subject to an Exchange Rate fee. The applicable Exchange Rate fee will be displayed on the Coinpass Platform in the User’s account prior to each transaction and is stated on each receipt issued by Coinpass to the User. A full list of Coinpass fees can be found in our Fee Schedule.
Coinpass at its sole discretion may immediately and without notice suspend, restrict, or terminate the User’s access to any or all of the Coinpass Services and/or deactivate or cancel a User’s Coinpass Account. The User agrees that Coinpass is under no obligation to disclose the reasons for the suspension or termination to the User.
The User may close their Coinpass Account at any time by withdrawing all balances and funds and informing Coinpass via the Coinpass Platform. There are no charges for closing or cancelling a Coinpass Account, although the User will be required to pay any outstanding fees and balances owed on the account. The User authorizes Coinpass to cancel or suspend any pending transactions at the time of termination.
On termination of this Agreement, unless prohibited by applicable law to which Coinpass is subject in any jurisdiction, we will liquidate any Digital Assets or any Legal Tender balance in the User's Coinpass Account E-Wallet(s) and within 30 (thirty) days after termination, transfer these funds directly back to the User's original funding account. If the Users account details have changed since they originally funded their Coinpass account, they will be asked to provide evidence that the account they wish to transfer any funds to, is in their name or under their direct control.
The Coinpass Services are provided on an "as is" and "as available "basis without any representation or warranty whether express or implied including any warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and/or non-infringement, or warranties arising from the course of performance, course of dealing or usage in trade to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.

If the User claims that Coinpass failed to process a buy or sell transaction properly, damages are limited to no more than the combined value of the supported Digital Assets or User Funds involved in the transaction. The User may not recover any purported loss of anticipated trading profits or for any actual trading losses made as a result of the failure to buy or sell.
Subject to clauses listed in the Liability section, in no event will the liability of Coinpass, our affiliates, and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, advisors, agents, representatives, suppliers, service providers, or contractors arise out of services offered by or on behalf of Coinpass and its affiliates, any performance or nonperformance of the Coinpass Services, or any other product, service or other items, whether under contract, statute, negligence or otherwise, exceed an amount equal to 100% of the fees paid by you to Coinpass under this Agreement in the twelve-month period immediately preceding the event giving rise to the claim or liability.
Notwithstanding any other terms of this Agreement, all limitations of liability are subject to any obligations that Coinpass has under applicable law and regulation, including our obligation to exercise reasonable care and skill in the provision of the Coinpass Services. Nothing in this Agreement shall limit our liability resulting from our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, gross negligence, or deliberate misconduct, for death or personal injury resulting from either Coinpass'or our subcontractors’ negligence.
The User acknowledges that there are risks associated with utilizing an internet-based trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and internet connections. The User acknowledges that Coinpass shall not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays the User may experience when trading via the Coinpass Services, howsoever caused.

Coinpass is not liable for any breach of this Agreement where the breach is due to abnormal and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which would have been unavoidable despite all reasonable effects to the contrary, nor is Coinpass liable where the breach is due to the application of mandatory legal rules.
If the User wishes to raise a complaint you are advised to contact Coinpass via the Coinpass Platform. When you contact Coinpass please provide your name, address, and any other information Coinpass may need to identify you as the User, and any transactional information, if the query relates to a trade. In the event of a complaint, a support person will consider a complaint brought to their attention by the User. The support officer will consider the complaint without prejudice based on the information provided by the User. Within 14 days of our receipt of the User’s complaint the support officer will, where possible, address the points raised in the complaint by sending the User an e-mail in which Coinpass will state one or more of the following; Should the support officer require more time they will send the User a holding reply indicating the reasons for a delay in answering the complaint and specifying the deadline by which the support officer will respond to the complaint.

Coinpass provides retail and corporate clients who hold appropriate levels of cryptocurrencies on our platform with the functionality of being able to stake their tokens. Any crypto assets our clients wish to lock up for staking purposes to earn additional tokens are enrolled into third-party proof of stake networks. This service can be directly accessed via the “Staking” tab available within the coinpass.com platforms and services. The use of staking is totally optional, but any User wishing to use our staking services agrees to be bound by the terms of this agreement.
Crypto tokens available for staking will be displayed in the "Staking" section of our platforms and applications. Coinpass will add additional tokens to stake as they become available, these will be displayed in the drop-down menu within each user’s coinpass account staking tab. Coinpass reserves the right to remove specific staking tokens from the staking menu and offering at their discretion and will notify users accordingly.
A list of stakable tokens is available on our fees and staking page(s).
The following Eligibility criteria will apply to any Userwishing to use our staking services:
Current Permitted Jurisdictions which allow for staking(subject to change):
By opting into the staking of any of your assets with us, coinpass as a transaction validator on the applicable network for the cryptocurrency you have chosen to stake will stake these assets on your behalf, and if Coinpass successfully validates a block of transactions in that cryptocurrency, you may earn a reward granted by that cryptocurrency network. The level of your reward will be determined by the protocols of the applicable network and after any initial bonding time, (which can be up to 2 days in some cases) reward funds will be available for you to withdraw from your account, less our commission.
Coinpass takes a commission on all rewards generated from staking activities. Staking rewards paid back to our Users reflects both this staking fee and the actual amount of cryptocurrency originally staked.
Any “staking rewards return” rate published by coinpass.com for a particular cryptocurrency is based on current data available to coinpass and levels of past rewards are not an indication of likely or actual future rewards. As a third party, we cannot guarantee that you will receive staking rewards if onboarding from a non-permitted jurisdiction. Your jurisdictional eligibility to receive such rewards may be subject to change at any time.
The tax treatment of certain cryptocurrencies is uncertain, and it is your responsibility to determine what taxes if any, arising from these transactions. Users are solely responsible for reporting and paying any applicable taxes arising from staking and all related transactions through the Coinpassstaking services, and Coinpass does not provide investment, legal, or tax advice to our Users in connection with any cryptocurrency trading conducted through our platform.
This section applies to all transactions completed using Coinpass Services, including User purchase or sale of Digital Assets directly from Coinpass Services, and any transaction in which a User loads Legal Tender into their Coinpass Account.

It is the User’s sole responsibility to determine whether, and to what extent, any taxes apply to any transactions they conduct through the Coinpass Services, and to withhold, collect, report, and remit the correct amounts of taxes to the appropriate tax authorities.

Users may not use their Coinpass Account to engage in the following categories of activity. The specific types of use listed below are representative, but not exhaustive. If a User is uncertain as to whether or not the use of Coinpass Services is restricted, please submit a request to Support via the Coinpass site.
When opening a Coinpass Account and using any Coinpass Services, the User confirms that they will not use the Coinpass Account to do any of the following:
The following are the Trading Rules and Conditions that govern the placing of orders on any of the Coinpass Platforms (Instant, Mobile, Trade), and are supplementary to the Coinpass Terms and Conditions. Users should be aware of which order types are available on which Coinpass platform.
Users can place an Order as either a “Limit Order”, “Market Order” or a “Stop Loss Order”. Not all order types are available on all Coinpass platforms. Market Orders or Stop Orders can be cancelled if they are not filled and there are no fees charged for cancelling these Orders.
A Market Order is an order to buy or sell a crypto asset at the market's current best available price. A market order typically ensures an execution but it does not guarantee a specified price. Market Orders are posted immediately onto the order book and are considered as a “Taker Order”.
Please note Market Orders are influenced by the liquidity in the order book at the time the Market Order was placed. Market Orders could fill at a price less favorable than the last recent trade price and, in some cases, this could result in large price changes called ‘slippage’.
Limit Orders set the maximum or minimum price at which to complete a transaction. Limit Orders typically act as “Resting Orders” to buy or sell a crypto asset automatically, and are executed when the limit price is attained/reached. Users should be aware execution is on a best-efforts basis and could result in price “slippage” as the order when released is treated as a Market Order to be executed at the prevailing price at the time.
Stop Loss Orders:
Stop Loss Orders are an order placed to sell a crypto asset when it reaches a certain price. Stop Loss Orders are used typically to limit a User’s loss on a position in a crypto asset. They differ from Limit Orders in that the crypto asset can be executed immediately at the Stop Loss Order price but the order is not released until the market price is reached to close off an existing position.
To place an order with Coinpass a User must have available FIAT funds or crypto assets to cover the order and any applicable fees. On the placement of any order, FIAT funds or crypto assets sufficient to cover that order are removed from available User balances in the User’s Coinpass E-Wallet.
Orders once posted will remain on the order book until cancelled by the User or Coinpass, the expiry of a Time in Force Instruction, or it is completely filled by one or more orders placed by another User at the same price. All order types are subject to Coinpass minimums and maximum order sizes for Market Orders as determined by the User’s Coinpass Account profile.
Fees and Settlement
Coinpass charge a platform fee. The platform fee is linked to the User’s Coinpass Account and can be viewed on. The fee is charged as a percentage of volume filled. The platform fee charged is debited as a User places an order, and the available balance is adjusted after each trade. Fee discounts are available to all Users based on priortrades executed.
Coinpass settles all Filled Orders immediately and this is reflected in the User’s available balances (crypto and FIAT funds). Users can then withdraw FIAT funds and crypto assets subject to daily withdrawal limits and User account verification requirements.
Order Book Integrity
All orders that are filled will not be amended or changed unless: Coinpass is compelled to do so to comply with any applicable law or regulation, this could include where Coinpass is required to suspend or terminate a User’s Coinpass Account;
Coinpass also reserves the right to take any action deemed appropriate to preserve market and order book integrity. Examples of such actions include but are not limited to:
Users are prohibited from engaging in market manipulation. Market manipulation is defined as actions taken by any market participant or a person or User acting in concert with a participant which is intended to:
Users are not able to place an order which would result in self-execution. If two orders of the same quantity would result in self-execution, both orders shall be cancelled.
If two orders of different quantities would result in self-execution, the smaller order is cancelled and the larger order is decreased by an amount equivalent to the smaller quantity. The remainder of the larger order remains open.
Order Book Priority
Access to the Coinpass order book is “pari passu” for all Users. Coinpass does not provide prioritized access to any User. Coinpass operates on a “First Come First Serve” basis. This means that each time an order is posted that order is matched with the earliest-in-time order at the best price on the Order Book. All Users accessing the Coinpass Platform are subject to the same Price-Time Priority. Please note an order may be matched with a number of corresponding orders at the same price.
Taker Orders are matched with the best available existing Market Orders. This means that a Limit Order placed outside the market(i.e., a sell order below the highest existing buy order, or a buy order above the lowest existing sell order) will be filled by the best available existing order rather than an existing order with the same price as the Limit Order.
Coinpass trades its own capital, and any User is subject to the same rule of “First Come First Served” basis as all other Users. Coinpass policies also prohibit all Coinpass employees from using inside, corporate, or proprietary information to trade crypto assets. All employees are required to trade Coinpass only supported assets on Coinpass products.
Maintenance and Interruptions
On occasions, Coinpass may suspend trading temporarily for maintenance or upgrades. Coinpass will notify all users via support of any scheduled maintenance detailing the:
Once maintenance has been completed Users shall be notified. Resting Limit Orders may be cancelled at Coinpass’ sole discretion and Coinpass will notify any impacted User.
If a technical issue occurs preventing Users from placing or cancelling orders or accessing the Coinpass Platform via any permissible means, Coinpass may, at its discretion, take one or more of the following actions:
If access to the Coinpass Platform is unavailable for 10 minutes or more Coinpass will endeavor to cancel any Resting Orders.
