Token Sale Terms & Conditions
These Resistance Token Sale Terms and Conditions are effective as of November 21th, 2018.
PLEASE READ THESE RESISTANCE TOKEN SALE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO OR UNDERSTAND THESE RESISTANCE TOKEN SALE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (OR ANY PART THEREOF), PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE RESISTANCE TOKENS. BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU MEET ALL OF THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS STATED IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. US CITIZENS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RESISTANCE TOKEN SALE OR IN ANY OTHER WAY ON THE RESISTANCE PLATFORM.
Your purchase of Resistance Tokens (“RES”) from Resistance Blockchain Technology Limited, a company incorporated in the Cayman Islands (“Company,” “we,” or “us”) is subject to these Token Sale Terms and Conditions (“Terms”). Each of you and Company is a “Party,” and together the “Parties.” By purchasing RES from us and/or using RES in connection with the Services (as defined below), you will be bound by these Terms and all terms incorporated by reference.
If you have any questions regarding these Terms, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
You and Company agree as follows:
Purpose and Use of RES (1)
The RES is not a security, it is a utility token. RES is a digital product issued by the Company for the use by Token Holders (“Token Holders”) as an intermediary to facilitate private trading on the Resistance decentralized exchange (“ResDEX”), as collateral in instant swaps, and as an incentive for masternode staking. RES are therefore intended to function as a means to access Resistance service and technology (the “Services”). RES may be purchased from the Company as part of the sale of tokens by way of the Initial Coin Offering, Pre-Initial Coin Offering or from a third-party seller on an exchange. Further details regarding the Services are provided in Schedule 1 and the Whitepaper issued by the Company and as amended from time to time.
By using the Services, you acknowledge that:
– Ownership of RES carries no rights, express or implied, other than as a means to access the Services. In particular, you understand and accept that RES do not represent or confer any ownership right or stake, share or security or equivalent rights in any jurisdiction, or any right to receive future revenue shares, intellectual property rights or any other form of participation in or relating to the Company and its corporate affiliates or its property, other than rights relating to the receipt of Services, subject to limitations and conditions in these Terms and applicable Resistance Terms and Policies (as defined below).
– RES are not and in no case shall be understood, deemed, interpreted or construed as any kind of financial instrument including but not limited to (i) any kind of currency or money, whether fiat or not; (ii) equity interest, voting or non- voting securities (or it’s like) in, or claims against, the Company, including its members, shareholders, consultants, directors or any other entity in any jurisdiction; (iii) equity or debt investment of any kind in any venture; (iv) any securities having intrinsic value or market price; (v) any form of financial derivative; (vi) any commercial paper or negotiable instrument; (vii) any form of investment contract between the relevant holder and any other person; (viii) any commodity or asset that any person is obliged to redeem or purchase; or (ix) any note, bond, warrant or other certificate that entitles the holder to interest, dividend or any kind of return from any person.
– We provide no assurance (whether express or implied) that RES may be traded on any known exchange, have any utility outside of the Services or may be exchanged for goods, currency or services.
– The Company reserves the right to reject your offer to purchase RES for any reason, at its absolute, unfettered discretion.
Scope of Terms (2)
To the extent of any conflict with these Terms, the Resistance Terms and Policies shall take precedence with respect to any issues relating to the use of RES in connection with the Services.
Purchasing RES (3)
Subject to these Terms, the Company agrees to sell to you and you agree to purchase from Company a specific number of RES at the price listed by the Company on its Website and the Whitepaper for Resistance as part of its Initial Coin Offering or Pre-Initial Coin Offering.
By purchasing RES, you represent that you have read and understood these Terms and the Whitepaper in full. You understand that Resistance is not responsible for and will not provide refunds for the value of RES purchased except as set out in section 4 below. You acknowledge and understand that the purchase of RES involves a level of risk that you agree to fully and completely assume, including, but not limited to, the risk that (i) the technology associated with RES and Trade Connect Protocol will not function as intended; (ii) a sale of RES is not be completed as anticipated; (iii) any Initial Coin Offering will fail to attract sufficient interest; and (iv) Resistance or any of the Services may be subject to investigation and punitive actions from governmental authorities.
Cancellation; Refunds; Refusal of Purchase Requests (4)
Your purchase of RES from us is final, and there are no refunds or cancellations except (i) as may be required by applicable law or regulation, or (ii) as otherwise determined by us in our sole discretion prior to the completion of the distribution of RES following completion of the Pre-Initial Coin Offering and Initial Coin Offering. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel RES purchase requests at any time in our sole discretion.
RES Sale Procedures and Specifications (5)
Important information about the procedures and material specifications of our RES sale is provided in Schedule 2, including, but not limited to, details regarding the timing of the RES sale and the amount of RES we will sell. By purchasing RES, you acknowledge that you understand and have no objection to these procedures and material specifications.
Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks (6)
You acknowledge and agree that there are risks associated with purchasing RES, holding RES, and using RES in connection with the Services, including but not limited to those as disclosed and explained in Schedule 3. You should carefully weigh the risks, costs and benefits of acquiring RES before doing so. If you are not in the position to accept or understand the risks associated with purchasing the Token, you should not acquire the Token.
Digital tokens are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks outlined in these Terms, there are risks that we cannot anticipate.
If you have any questions regarding these risks, please contact support@Resistance.io
BY PURCHASING RES, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND ASSUME THESE RISKS.
You are responsible for implementing reasonable measures for securing the wallet, vault or other storage mechanism you use to receive and hold RES you purchase from us, including any requisite private key(s) or other credentials necessary to access such storage mechanism(s). We shall not be liable for your loss of RES after it is transferred to you including by reason of your failure to keep an accurate record of your password or other credentials. If your private key(s) or other access credentials are lost, you may lose access to your RES. We are not responsible for any such losses. If your password protection is weak and it is cracked, stolen or otherwise obtained by a third party, this may also lead to the loss of RES. As a result, you must safely store the passwords in one or more backup locations that are well separated from the primary location.
Personal Data (8)
The purchase price that you pay for RES is exclusive of all applicable taxes. You are responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your purchase of RES, including, for example, sales, use, value added, and similar taxes. It is also your responsibility to withhold, collect, report and remit the correct taxes to the appropriate tax authorities. You acknowledge that the ownership of RES may fall under existing and/or future taxation laws. You are responsible for the payment of any taxes or fees, now existing or applicable in the future, that may be incurred as a result of your ownership of Tokens. We are not responsible for withholding, collecting, reporting, or remitting any sales, use, value added, or similar tax arising from your purchase or ownership of RES.

Limitation of Liability (14)
- 14.1 TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (I) IN NO EVENT WILL COMPANY OR ANY OF THE COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WHERE RELATED TO LOSS OF REVENUE, INCOME OR PROFITS, LOSS OF USE OR DATA, OR DAMAGES FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE SALE, PROVISION OR USE OF RES OR OTHERWISE RELATED TO THE SERVICES OR THESE TERMS, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SIMPLE NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE); AND (II) IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF COMPANY AND THE COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES (JOINTLY), WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), OR OTHER THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE RES, EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAY TO US FOR RES.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION –ARBITRATION (16)
- 16.1 Binding Arbitration: Except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings (collectively, “Disputes”) in which either Party seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents, you and Company (i) waive your and Company’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes arising from or related to these Terms resolved in a court, and (ii) waive your and Company’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and Company will arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration (which is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court).
- 16.2 No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions: Any Dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or your purchase of RES is personal to you and Company and will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. There will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals. Further, a Dispute cannot be brought as a class or other type of representative action, whether within or outside of arbitration, or on behalf of any other individual or group of individuals.
- 16.3 Process: Arbitration will be conducted confidentially. The Tribunal shall consist of one (1) arbitrator. The language of the arbitration shall be English. All costs of Arbitration will be born and maintained by you.
- 16.4 Authority of Arbitrator(s): As limited by these Terms he arbitrator(s) will have (i) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (ii) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator(s) may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
- 16.5 Severability of Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Provisions: If any term, clause or provision of this Section is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this Section will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in this Section are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
Governing Law and Venue (17)
These Terms will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Cayman Islands without regard to conflict of law rules or principles that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the Parties arising out or relating to these Terms or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual Disputes of claims) that is not subject to arbitration will be resolved elsewhere.
If any term, clause or provision of these Terms is held unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these Terms.
- 19.1 These Terms (and, where applicable, Resistance Terms and Policies) constitute the entire agreement between you and us relating to your purchase of RES from us. We may make changes to these Terms from time to time as reasonably required to comply with applicable law or regulation. If we make changes, we will post the amended Terms on our website and update the “Last Updated” date above. The amended Terms will be effective immediately.
- 19.2 We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision.
- 19.3 We will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under these Terms where the delay or failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control.
- 19.4 Purchasing RES from us does not create any form of partnership, joint venture or any other similar relationship between you and us.
- 19.5 Except as otherwise provided in herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of you and us and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
- 19.6 You agree and acknowledge that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you, including these Terms, will be provided in electronic form.
Description of Company, and RES:
- Overview of Company
The Company is a limited company formed in the Cayman Islands and will have primary responsibility for the provision of Services and for administering the development of the Resistance protocol and the functionality of RES.
2. Overview of Resistance and RES Functionality
Resistance is a secure, decentralized exchange, ResDEX, powered by a privacy-oriented blockchain. RES functions as an intermediary to provide privacy to trades taking place on ResDEX. RES can also be used as collateral in instant swaps, and as an incentive for masternode staking.

Commencement and Duration of Token Sale:
Private Sale: 21st November, 2018 to 27th January, 2019
Public Sale: 28th January, 2019 to 28th February, 2019
Payments: Any payment received by the Company after the end of the sale period will be accepted only if it was originated during the Sale Period. Company may request to provide evidence of payment from a purchaser of RES. No payment will be accepted when the Hard Cap specified is reached.
Certain bonuses or offers may be offered by the Company during certain periods. The number of purchased RES shall be determined based on the total amount received by Company subject to applicable bonuses available to you at the time of receipt of your payment.
Distribution: Prior to distribution of RES, you are required to provide an address of the third party digital wallet (“External Wallet”) where your purchased RES can be sent. The External Wallet must support the ERC-20 token standard. Following the successful purchase of RES and closure of the ICO, RES will be distributed to your External Wallet within a commercially reasonable period.
Failure to provide a correct address for your External Wallet may result in the loss of purchased RES or delay the withdrawal of the purchased RES. RES disclaims all liability for any loss of RES in these circumstances.
Risks Relating to Purchase, Sale and Use of RES
Important Note: As noted elsewhere in these Terms, Resistance tokens are not being structured or sold as securities or any other form of investment product. Accordingly, none of the information presented in this Schedule is intended to form the basis for any investment decision, and no specific recommendations are intended. The Company expressly disclaims any and all responsibility for any direct or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever arising directly or indirectly from: (i) reliance on any information contained in this Schedule, (ii) any error, omission or inaccuracy in any such information or (iii) any action resulting from such information.
Prior to purchasing RES, you should carefully consider the risks listed below and, to the extent necessary, consult a lawyer, accountant, and/or tax professional prior to determining whether to purchase RES. By purchasing, holding and using RES, you expressly acknowledge and assume the following risks:
Security: Hackers or other malicious groups or organisations may attempt to interfere with Resistance or RES in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing, which may result in loss or corruption of RES.
Fundraising: The Pre-ICO and ICO may not reach the target sale amount and so the Company may not have the sufficient funds to execute on its business plan. There is no guarantee the Company will be able to execute its business plan. If the Company is successful in implementing its business plan, you will not benefit or participate in the Company’s growth by virtue of your ownership of RES.
Token Value: Digital currencies are extremely volatile and RES may suffer from said volatility. Resistance does not guarantee any specific value of RES over any period of time. RES may be significantly influenced by digital currency market trends and RES value may be severely depreciated due to non-RES related events in the digital currency markets.
Loss of Private Key(s), Custodial Error or Purchaser Error: A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of RES stored in your digital wallet or vault. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet or vault storing RES will result in loss of such RES. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a digital wallet or vault service you use, may be able to misappropriate your RES. Any errors or malfunctions caused by or otherwise related to the digital wallet or vault you choose to receive and store RES, including your own failure to properly maintain or use such digital wallet or vault, may also result in the loss of your RES.
Regulation: The regulatory status of RES and blockchain technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting Resistance and RES. Changes in laws or regulatory status or actions by governmental authorities could negatively impact Resistance and RES in various ways. This could result in substantial modifications to the proposed implementation of the Resistance project and RES utility or may even cause the Company to cease operations in a jurisdiction or at all.
Tax: Purchasing RES may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including the imposition of withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements. You should seek tax advice from your own tax counsel in connection with purchasing RES.
Competition: It is possible that alternative platforms and solutions could be established that utilise the same or similar protocols underlying Resistance and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to the Services. Such competition could negatively impact Resistance and RES, including RES’s utility for obtaining Services.
Demand: It is possible that Resistance will not be used by a large number of individuals, companies and other entities. Such a lack of use or interest could negatively impact the development of Resistance and the potential utility of RES, including its utility for obtaining Services.
Development: Resistance is yet to be developed and may undergo significant changes over time. Although we intend for RES and Resistance to follow the specifications set forth in Schedule 1 and the White Paper, and will take commercially reasonable steps toward those ends, we may have to make changes to the specifications of RES or Resistance for any number of legitimate reasons. This could create the risk that RES or Resistance, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations at the time of purchasing RES. Furthermore, despite our good faith efforts to develop and maintain Resistance, it is still possible that Resistance will experience malfunctions or otherwise fail to be adequately developed or maintained, which may negatively impact Resistance and the potential utility of RES, including its utility for obtaining Services. It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including without limitation, the failure of the business relationships, or competing intellectual property claims, Resistance may no longer be a viable business and may dissolve, or RES may fail to launch.
Governance: Because RES confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to Resistance or Company, all decisions involving Resistance or Company will be made by Company at its sole discretion, including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue Resistance, to sell more RES for use in Resistance, or to sell or liquidate the Company. These decisions could adversely affect Resistance and the utility of RES that you hold, including RES’s utility for obtaining Services.
Links: We have no control over your participation, correspondence, or business dealings with any third party found on or accessed through the Services, including without limitation with respect to any payment for or delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party.
Unanticipated Risks: Cryptographic tokens such as RES are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Schedule 3, there are other risks associated with your purchase, holding and use of RES, including those that the Company cannot anticipate.
Resistance Terms & Conditions
Please read, and agree to, the following before proceeding.
PERSONAL SECURITY PROTOCOLS
Resistance is not responsible for the security of your devices. If one of your devices is breached, you could lose both currency and contracts.
Resistance is not responsible for how you operate online. If you break any laws, betray the trust of another user, or behave unethically while using the platform, you will suffer the consequences.
LEGAL ISSUES – BRIEF
Liabilities and Warranties
The user expressly knows and agrees that the user is using the Resistance platform at the user’s sole risk.
The user represents that the user had an adequate understanding of the risks, usages, and intricacies of cryptographic tokens and blockchain-based open-source software, Resistance, and the Resistance coin.
The user acknowledges and agrees that, to the fullest extent permitted by any applicable law, the disclaimers of liability contained herein apply to any and all damages or injury whatsoever caused by or related to risks of, use of, or inability to use, the Resistance platform under any cause of action whatsoever of any kind in any jurisdiction, including, without limitation, actions for breach of warranty, breach of contract or tort (including negligence) and that neither Resistance nor the Resistance Team shall be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including for loss of profits, goodwill or data.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain types of damages. Therefore, some of the above limitations in this section may not apply to a user. In particular, nothing in these terms shall affect the statutory rights of any user or exclude injury arising from any willful misconduct or fraud of Resistance.
LEGAL ISSUES – EXTENDED
The following Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) govern the use of the Resistance open-source software platform (“Resistance Platform”). Before any use of the Resistance Platform, the User confirms to understand and expressly agrees to all of the Terms. All capitalized terms in this agreement will be given the same effect and meaning as in the Terms. The group of developers and other personnel that is now, or will be, employed by, or contracted with, Resistance (“Resistance”) is termed the “Resistance Team.” The Platform will be developed by persons and entities who support Resistance.
The user acknowledges the following major risks to any use of the Resistance Platform and expressly agrees to neither hold Resistance nor the Resistance Team liable should any of the following risks transpire:
Regulatory Actions in One or Multiple Jurisdictions:
The Resistance Platform could be impacted by one or more regulatory inquiries or regulatory actions, which could hinder or limit the ability of Resistance to continue to develop the Resistance Platform, or which could block or restrict the ability of a User to use the Resistance Platform.
Unendorsed, Alternative Resistance Networks
There is a possibility that alternative Resistance-based networks could be established, which utilize the same open-source source code and open-source protocol underlying the Resistance Platform. Resistance-based networks may compete with Resistance, which could potentially negatively impact the Resistance Platform.
Lack of Interest in the Resistance Platform or Distributed Applications
It is possible that the Resistance Platform will not be used by a significant number of external businesses, individuals, and other organizations and that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed applications. Such a lack of interest could impact the development of the Resistance Platform. It cannot predict the success of its development efforts or the efforts of other third-parties.
The Resistance Platform Does Not Meet User Expectations
The User recognizes that the Resistance Platform is under development and may undergo significant changes at any time. The User acknowledges that any expectations regarding the form and functionality of the Resistance Platform held by the User may not be met upon release of the Resistance Platform, for any number of reasons including a change in the design and implementation strategy and execution of the implementation of the Resistance Platform.
Potential Security Vulnerabilities
The Resistance Platform rests on open-source software, and there is a risk that Resistance or the Resistance Team, or other third-parties not directly affiliated with Resistance, may introduce weaknesses or bugs into the core infrastructural elements of the Resistance Platform causing the system to lose Resistance tokens stored in one or more User accounts or other accounts or lose sums of other valued tokens issued on the Resistance Platform.
Breakthroughs in Cryptography that Could be Used to Exploit the Resistance Platform
Cryptography is always advancing. Developments in code-breaking, quantum computing, AI and other fields, could jeopardize the security of cryptocurrencies and the Resistance Platform, which could result in the theft or loss of Resistance tokens. As much as possible, Resistance intends to update the protocol underlying the Resistance Platform to mitigate any advances in cryptography and to incorporate extra security measures, but it cannot guarantee that any security updates will be initiated in time or successfully.
Potential Mining Attacks
Just as is the case with many other cryptocurrencies, the blockchain used for the Resistance Platform is vulnerable to mining attacks, including but not limited to:
- Selfish-mining attacks
- Race condition attacks
- Double-spend attacks
- Majority mining power attacks
Any successful attacks present a risk to the Resistance Platform, expected proper execution and sequencing of transactions, and expected adequate performance and sequencing of contract computations. Despite the efforts of Resistance and the Team, known or innovative mining attacks may be successful.
Quick Implementation and Inflated Demand
If the Resistance Platform is rapidly adopted, demand for Resistance tokens could increase intensely and at a pace that exceeds the rate at which miners can create new tokens. Under these circumstances, the entire Resistance Platform could become destabilized, due to the increased cost of running distributed applications. In turn, this could dampen interest in the Resistance Platform and Resistance tokens. Volatility in the demand for Resistance tokens could lead to an adverse change of the economic parameters of a Resistance-based business which could result in the company being unable to continue to operate economically, or to cease operation.
Quick Implementation and Insufficient Computational Application Processing Power
If the Resistance Platform is rapidly adopted, demand for transaction processing and distributed application computations could increase intensely and at a pace that exceeds the rate with which miners can bring online additional mining power. Under these circumstances, the entire Resistance Platform could become destabilized, due to the increased cost of running distributed applications. In turn, this could diminish interest in the Resistance Platform and Resistance tokens. Insufficiency of computational resources and an associated rise in the price of Resistance tokens could result in businesses being unable to acquire scarce computational resources to run their distributed applications. This would result in revenue losses to businesses or even cause businesses to cease operations because such operations will have become unprofitable.

Brief Network Incoherence
It is our recommendation that any groups handling large or essential transactions to maintain a voluntary 24-hour waiting period on any Resistance tokens deposited. In case the integrity of the network is at risk due to issues with the clients, we will aim to release patches with a sensible timeframe to address the issues. We will endeavor to provide solutions within the voluntary 24-hour waiting period.
Resistance is not liable for:
- Government orders
- Lack of energy
- Unavoidable casualty
- Delays in delivery of materials
- Acts of civil or military authorities
Any comparable unforeseen event that results in performance becoming commercially improbable.
