(2) Leondrino Digital Currency Services for Members
The following “Leondrino Digital Currency Services” which are a subset of the LEX Services are provided to members by Leondra GmbH – the licensee of Leondrino Exchange operating in Germany under German legislation:
A hosted Leondrino Wallet enabling you to store, track and manage your balances of Leondrino – currently only Leondrino of token classes E, D and C (the “Leondrino”) and one or more hosted Leondrino wallets enabling you to store, track, manage and transfer external digital currencies, currently only Ethereum (“External Digital Currency“);
A service to purchase tokens during initial token and coin offerings from companies based on the Leondrino Lifecycle and its policies (“Leondrino Primary Market Service”);
A Restricted Exchange Service enabling you to obtain prices for your purchases and sales of Leondrino (“Leondrino Restricted Exchange“);
A Restricted Leondrino Conversion Service enabling you to buy and sell Leondrino of token class C (which are eligible for restricted trade) for External Digital Currencies via Leondra GmbH (the “Leondrino Restricted Conversion Services“).
(3) Limitations for Leondrino Digital Currency Services
Currently, Leondrino Digital Currency Services are only offered for Leondrino token classes E, D and C by Leondra GmbH as German licensee of the Leondrino Exchange. The general description of the Leondrino token classes and its restrictions regarding frequency and volume of transactions can be found in the FAQ section on the LEX Website. Leondrino Restricted Exchange and Leondrino Restricted Conversion Services are only offered for Token Class C Leondrino of companies that completed their Leondrino ICO and that are eligible for this service. One major criterion for the eligibility is that the associated company is able to offer products & services in exchange for its Leondrino.
Leondra GmbH is in preparation to apply for a multilateral trading facility and its associated licenses in Germany. As long as Leondra GmbH is not licensed, it applies necessary restrictions regarding transfer, trade, volume and frequency of Leondrino transactions.
Depending on your country of residence, you may not be able to use all the functions of the LEX Website. It is your responsibility to follow those rules and laws in your country of residence and/or country from which you access the LEX Services. As long as you agree to and comply with these Terms, Leondrino Exchange grants to you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and limited right to enter and use LEX Services.
If you do not accept the Terms and Conditions outlined herein, do not access the LEX Website and do not use the LEX Services.
By accessing or using the LEX Services associated to Leondrino Vouchers or Leondrino of token classes E and D, you expressly represent and warrant
(1) You have accepted these Terms;
(2) You are at least 14 years of age and have the full capacity accept these Terms and enter into a transaction involving Leondrino Vouchers; and
(3) You will not use the LEX Services if the laws of your country prohibit you from doing so in accordance with these Terms.
By signing up to use the Leondrino Account and accessing or using the LEX Services associated to Leondrino of token classes C, B and A, you expressly represent and warrant that:
(4) You have accepted these Terms;
(5) You are at least 18 years of age and have the full capacity to accept these Terms and enter into a transaction involving Leondrino Currencies;
(6) You are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any country to which the United States has embargoed goods or services;
(7) You are not identified as a “Specially Designated National”;
(8) You are not placed on the Commerce Department’s Denied Persons List; and
(9) You will not use the LEX Services if the laws of your country prohibit you from doing so in accordance with these Terms.
Initially Leondrino Vouchers and Leondrino of token classes E and D are distributed without any obligation of Leondrino Exchange to take them back for compensation. As soon as the trading of Leondrino is permitted for selected brands, a price will be built based on supply and demand.
The trading of goods and products, real or virtual, as well as virtual currencies, involves significant risk.
Prices can and do fluctuate on any given day. Due to such price fluctuations, you may increase or lose value in your assets at any given moment. Any currency – virtual or not – may be subject to large swings in value and may even become nearly worthless when the corporation owning the related brand of the currency ceases to exist. There is an inherent risk that losses will occur as a result of buying, selling or trading anything on a market.
Leondrino trading also has special risks not generally 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, Leondrino are a unique kind of virtual currency, whose value is related to the current and future business of the associated brand – and trust. Leondrino Exchange through its organizational unit Autonomia can take corrective action to meet the goals of the monetary policy of a Leondrino Currency by influencing the supply of the currency. The monetary policy actions will follow rules to meet the goal of keeping the price volatility within in a limited bandwidth. The goals will be defined by the monetary policy of a Leondrino Currency and will be made transparent to the market.
Leondrino Exchange, Inc. will not issue Leondrino Currencies and will not allow trading of Leondrino Currencies until it has received a license to issue and administer Leondrino Currencies as a virtual currency from the New York State Department of Financial Services. Regardless of whether a Member is a resident or present in New York State, each Member must abide by these Terms. Before Leondrino Vouchers can be converted to Leondrino Currencies, the Leondrino Exchange or its licensees will provide Members with the terms and conditions governing such conversions.
Trading of Leondrino may be susceptible to irrational (or rational) bubbles or loss of confidence, which could materially reduce demand relative to supply. For example, demand for a Leondrino may significantly decrease relative to supply because of unexpected changes imposed by a government action, civil unrest, Acts of God, the creation of superior competing alternative currencies, or a deflationary or inflationary spiral. Confidence might also be eroded because of technical problems: if money and or Leondrino and/or Leondrino Vouchers are lost or stolen, or if hackers or governments are able to prevent any transactions from settling.
There may be additional risks that we have not foreseen or identified in our Terms.
You should carefully assess whether your financial situation and tolerance for risk is suitable for buying, selling or trading Leondrino and consult with your own financial, accounting, tax and legal advisers.
We use our banking providers to receive client funds and make payments denominated in government-issued currencies. Currently, our banking providers DO NOT transfer Leondrino or exchange Leondrino.

We are vigilant in maintaining the security of the LEX Website and the LEX Services.

You further agree that you will not use any Account other than your own, or access the Account of any other Member at any time, or assist others in obtaining unauthorized access.
The creation or use of Accounts without obtaining the prior express permission from Leondrino Exchange will result in the immediate suspension of all said Accounts, as well as all pending purchase/sale offers. Any attempt to do so or to assist others (Members or otherwise), or the distribution of instructions, software or tools for that purpose, will result in the Accounts of such Members being terminated. Termination is not the exclusive remedy for such a violation, and Leondrino Exchange may elect to take further action against you.
You also are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account information, including your password, safeguarding your own Leondrino Vouchers and Leondrino Currencies, and for all activity including Transactions that are posted to your Account. If there is suspicious activity related to your Account, we may, but are not obligated, to request additional information from you, including authenticating documents, and to freeze any transactions pending our review. You are obligated to comply with these security requests, or accept termination of your Account. You are required to notify Leondrino Exchange immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account or password, or any other breach of security by email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any Member who violates these rules may be terminated, and thereafter held liable for losses incurred by Leondrino Exchange or any user of the LEX Services.
Leondrino Exchange similarly reserves the right to freeze Leondrino accounts. The individual freeze is intended primarily for complying with regulatory requirements, which may vary from one jurisdiction to another. These features allow Leondrino Exchange to better operate in compliance of laws and regulations.
Finally, you agree that you will not use the Service to conduct criminal activity of any sort, including but not limited to, money laundering, illegal gambling operations, terrorist financing, or malicious hacking.
(8) Fees for Members

(9) Trading Terms
Starting with the Restricted Trade Mode, the following trading terms are valid:
LEX may stop its trade offering or trade of specific Leondrino of a company at any time on its sole discretion based on a number of factors, one of which may be based on cyber-attacks, maintenance needs or in case of a single Leondrino type the violation of standard rules regarding the standard Leondrino token design and the Leondrino specific adjustments that were agreed to with the associated company of the specific Leondrino (e.g. STT).
LEX may delist Leondrino of a company on its sole discretion based on a number of factors, one of which may include very strong and repeated violation of compliance of standard rules regarding the standard Leondrino token design and the company specific adjustments that were agreed to with the associated company.
A transaction on Leondrino Exchange may fail for several reasons, including without limitation to change in seller prices or unanticipated technical difficulties. We make no representation or warrant that any transaction will be executed properly. We are under no circumstances liable for any loss or injury suffered by a failure of a transaction to complete properly or in a timely manner. Further, we are in no way responsible for notifying you of a transaction failure, although you are able to see any such failures using your Leondrino Wallet. You have full responsibility to determine and inquire into the failure of any transaction which includes an External Digital Currency which you initiate.
We may refuse to execute a trade, impose trade amount limits or restrictions at any time in its sole discretion without notice. Specifically, we reserve the right to refuse to process, or the right to cancel or reverse, any transaction or not provide access to a User’s deposit address on the Leondrino where it suspects the transaction involves money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other type of crime or if we suspect the transaction relates to a prohibited use as stated in our terms & conditions, including transactions involving the opening of an Account and subsequent closure without any actual trading occurring.
Leondra GmbH provides deposit Accounts for External Digital Currency (currently only Ethereum) to enable trading using the Services and does not allow Members to use such Accounts as a web wallet or address changing service. We reserve the right to halt deposit activity at our sole discretion. While LEX may in its discretion reverse a trade, a member may not change, withdraw, or cancel its authorization to make a transaction, except with respect to partially filled orders.
We may correct, reverse, or cancel any trade impacted by an error in processing your purchase or otherwise. Your remedy in the event of an error will be limited. You may seek to cancel your order or obtain a refund of any amounts charged to you, although we cannot guarantee such cancellations or refunds will always be possible.
We provide Members with a platform that allows their orders to be matched with the orders of other Members. Orders may be partially filled or may be filled by a number of orders, depending on the trading activity at the time an order is placed. With a matching algorithm allowing partial fillings, LEX can´t guarantee that earlier orders are in any case processed before more actual orders.
As long as LEX does not offer services for Leondrino of token class A, LEX does not act as principal or counterparty with respect to trades entered into on the LEX platform. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) LEX may act as a counterparty for limited trades made for the purpose of liquidating fees collected on Member trades, and (ii) customers of LEX (enterprises of the associated Leondrino and its affiliates) may execute trades on the platform; provided, however, that the associated enterprise or its affiliates shall not be afforded any priority in trade execution.
Different Leondrino of their associated companies that are available for purchase through the Leondrino Digital Currency Services may be subject to high or low transaction volume, liquidity, and volatility at any time for potentially extended periods. You acknowledge that while we are using commercially reasonable methods to provide exchange rate information to you through our Services, the exchange rate information we provide using also external information sources may differ from prevailing exchange rates made available by third parties. Similarly, the actual market rate at the time of your trade may be different from the indicated prevailing rate depending on the velocity of trading in the Leondrino involved in your trade. You agree that you assume all risks and potential losses associated with price fluctuations or differences in actual versus indicated rates.
In the event that you receive any data, information, or software through our Services other than that which you are entitled to receive pursuant to this Agreement, you will immediately notify us and will not use, in any way whatsoever, such data, information or software. If you request a withdrawal of External Digital Currencies and we cannot comply with it without closing some part of your open positions, we will not comply with the request until you have closed sufficient positions to allow you to make the withdrawal.

Coinciding with the launch of Leondrino Wallet, Leondrino Exchange would like to inform its clients about the implementation of measures according to the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (hereinafter AML/CFT Act). In order to support government in the fight against financing of terrorism and money laundering, the Act requires all financial institutions and related service providers to collect, verify and store identity data of persons and entities seeking to establish an account or Leondrino Wallet. Correspondingly, based on risk assessment, Leondrino Exchange has developed an internal Anti-Money Laundering Program and Counter Terrorism Financing Program (hereinafter AML Program to be aligned with the goals of the AML/CFT Act. These include:
- to detect and deter Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing ;
- to maintain and promote the reputation of the financial system by implementing the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), where appropriate in the context; and
- to contribute to public confidence in the financial system.
By signing up for a Leondrino Trading Account (Leondrino Wallet including trading entitlements), you accept the following terms and conditions:
- You warrant that you comply with all applicable laws and regulations to combat money laundering, including, but not limited to the AML / CTF Act and the associated, currently effective rules and regulations;
- You have no knowledge of and no reason to suspect that:
- the money used to finance the deposit on your account was originated or will be originated and thus was connected and will be connected with money laundering or other activities regarded as illegal within the framework of applicable laws and regulations or other as prohibited activities under an international convention or agreement (“illegal activities”)
- the proceeds out of your investment in the depot will be used to finance illegal activities; and
- You agree to immediately provide us with all the information that we need to adhere to all applicable laws and regulations to combat money laundering.
In accordance with the AML Program, Leondrino Exchange will, upon the account opening and on an ongoing basis, exercise due care in accordance with each client’s risk levels.
This means: in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1988, Leondrino Exchange will request a specified set of background information to confirm a client’s identity; store this identity-related information as well as methods and results of the identity check; inform clients that we will request information and reconcile with government-provided lists of terror suspects.
The requested information shall include:
- the full name of the customer; and
- the date of birth if it is a natural person; and
- if the person who opened the account is not the customer himself, the relationship of the person with the customer; and
- the address or registered office of the customer; and
- the company name or the customer’s registration number;
- the expected level and the type of activity to be undertaken;
- the expected source of funds, which are intended to be used in the business relationship; and
- details about employment and assets or sources of income.
To verify the above information, Leondrino Exchange will request the following documentation from prospective clients:
- passport or identity card or similar document that:
- includes name, date of birth and a photograph of the person to whom the document is issued, and
- is issued by a national government, the United Nations or an agency of the United Nations.
- copy of the certificate of incorporation or equivalent national document;
- copy of the bylaws or equivalent national document;

Leondrino Exchange might request additional documentation and background information. In some instances, copies of requested documents may suffice, provided they have been officially certified and appraised.
Ban of Sham Tansactions
We hereby inform customers of Leondrino Exchange regarding prohibited transactions, which are commonly called “sham transactions”. This prohibition is imposed according to the AML / CFT Act in order to identify, to defuse and manage potential risks in relation to money laundering and terrorist financing for Leondrino Exchange.
This provision requires that all orders are made in good faith for the purpose of access to and making profits from movements of quotas in financial instruments. No Customer may open up directly or indirectly opposite positions (ie buy and sell orders) in the same financial instrument, where the intention of the customer does not lie in the fact to make profit from speculative activities, but to avoid an honest, the market risk exposed market position.
It is also inadmissible, to open opposite positions in the same financial instrument for various eWallets or Leondrino trading accounts with shared beneficial ownership (this excludes accounts with less than 100% public ownership a) as well as eWallets or Leondrino trading accounts of customers who stand in any relationship to one another, if this is the intention of avoiding market risk or price competition. Such activities are also considered a violation of the sham transaction ban. The fact that there is a delay between the opening of opposite positions, does not exempt from this ban, if the performance entails a sham transaction result. The mere delay of opening a buy and sell order does not exclude, depending on the terms of the order, that orders are entirely or partially traded against each other. To the extent as orders are traded against each other, their outcome can be regarded as an illegal sham transaction, regardless of the fact that the orders were opened at different times.
In all cases where one of the above transactions is recognized, Leondrino Exchange may exercise its rights pursuant to the relevant User Agreement, which the user has explicitly agreed to as part of the account opening; including, but not limited to: cancellation or adjustment of the respective transactions of users.

The trading of goods and products, real or virtual, as well as virtual currencies involves significant risk. Prices can and do fluctuate on any given day. Due to such price fluctuations, your assets (specifically any of your holdings in Leondrino Currencies) may increase or decrease in value 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 buying, selling or trading anything on a market.
In addition, you should consider the following material risks identified by the New York State Department of Financial Services:
- Virtual Currency is not legal tender, is not backed by the government, and accounts and value balances are not subject to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or Securities Investor Protection Corporation protections;
- legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of Virtual Currency;
- transactions in Virtual Currency may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable;
- some Virtual Currency transactions shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that the customer initiates the transaction;
- the value of Virtual Currency may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange Fiat Currency for Virtual Currency, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular Virtual Currency should the market for that Virtual Currency disappear;
- there is no assurance that a Person who accepts a Virtual Currency as payment today will continue to do so in the future;
- the volatility and unpredictability of the price of Virtual Currency relative to Fiat Currency may result in significant loss over a short period of time;
- the nature of Virtual Currency may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber attack;
- the nature of Virtual Currency means that any technological difficulties experienced by the Licensee may prevent the access or use of a customer’s Virtual Currency; and
- any bond or trust account maintained by the Leondrino Exchange for the benefit of its customers may not be sufficient to cover all losses incurred by customers.
You should carefully assess whether your financial situation and tolerance for risk is suitable for buying, selling or trading Leondrino.
