IV. ELIGIBILITY AND ACCESS
- In order to be eligible for setting up and operating a Nexo Wallet all of the conditions below must be met:
- You are not a resident, located, organised or located in comprehensively sanctioned jurisdictions, areas or regions, or otherwise subject to targeted sanctions, according to the up-to-date lists of the US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the United Nations, the European Union, and any EU Member State and the HM Treasury. Nexo has zero tolerance for money laundering, terrorism financing & fraudulent activities, as well as other financial crimes;
- You are not identified as a “Specially Designated National” and are not placed in the US Commerce Department’s Denied Persons List;
- You are not a citizen or resident of the United States of America, or any other jurisdiction where Nexo has prohibited or restricted access to the Nexo Wallet;
- You are at least 18 years old or are of legal age (whichever is later) and have the full right, power, and authority to agree to these General Terms;
- You are the exclusive beneficial and/or legal owner of any Digital Assets topped up or to be topped up into your Nexo Wallet;
- You are the beneficial owner of your Nexo Wallet and do not act on behalf of or represent any other natural person or legal entity impersonate any other person, operate under an alias or otherwise conceal your identity.
- By entering into these General Terms, you acknowledge and confirm that you meet all the conditions set out above. In the event that we subsequently ascertain that you have not met or do not meet any of these conditions anymore, we may suspend the provision of access to the Nexo Wallet and not allow you to use any or all of the Services offered therein.
- We can, at our sole and absolute discretion, refuse to set up a Nexo Wallet for you, thus refusing you access to the Services offered therein.
- You hereby undertake to оbtain all necessary hardware, as well as to install all necessary software, including security and antivirus, for your use of the Nexo Wallet in accordance with these General Terms. You are solely responsible for keeping your device safe and maintaining adequate security and control of your private keys, codes, and recovery phrase and shall be solely responsible for any access to and use of the Nexo Wallet through your device, regardless of whether such access may have been made without your knowledge, authority or consent. We will not be liable to you for any loss or damage resulting from such use.
- Nexo stores your Nexo Wallet address but does not receive or store your codes or recovery phrase. Nexo, therefore, cannot assist with your Nexo Wallet details retrieval, nor can Nexo provide a replacement of your private keys, Nexo Wallet address, codes or recovery phrase. Furthermore, in the unfortunate event of your passing, if your legal administrator, successor or heir is not in possession of your codes or recovery phrase, we are unable to grant such person access to your Nexo Wallet. In such a situation, your Nexo Wallet and its contents will become permanently inaccessible.
- FAILURE TO KEEP YOUR NEXO WALLET SAFE OR FAILURE TO REMEMBER YOUR NEXO WALLET DETAILS OR YOUR EXTERNAL NON-CUSTODIAL WALLET PRIVATE KEY MAY RESULT IN YOUR NEXO WALLET BECOMING PERMANENTLY INACCESSIBLE AND/OR THE PERMANENT LOSS OF THE DIGITAL ASSETS STORED IN YOUR NEXO WALLET.
- In order to make use of the Nexo Wallet you must first create and deploy an Identity. Your Identity is a smart contract paired with your Non-Custodial Wallet that serves as a Signer. You understand and acknowledge that your Identity only becomes active for а particular blockchain network, thus deploying the smart contract on the said blockchain network following your first transaction, which may lead to transaction fees. All your interactions with Dapps in Web3 are tied to your Identity.
- You may deploy any number of Identities. You may pair any number of External Non-Custodial Wallets that you own to the Identity you create. However an External Non-Custodial Wallet can only be paired to one particular Identity. Once an External Non-Custodial Wallet is connected to your Identity, they are bound permanently, until we provide a functionality for you to unlink them in the future. Once your External Non-Custodial Wallet is initially connected to your Identity, it is permanently bound to it, until we provide a functionality for you to unlink them in the future. Each subsequent External Non-Custodial Waller may be discarded as indicated on the Nexo Defi Platform.
- The deployment of an Identity on the blockchain is related to an on-chain transaction and as such incurs on-chain transaction fees (known as “Gas fee”). With the exception of the Ethereum blockchain, Nexo will pay Identity deployment fees on your behalf, as a promotional offering that can be suspended at any time at our sole and absolute discretion.
- Each Transaction initiated through your Identity is subject to your authorization using your paired Signer.
- Both Digital Assets transferred into your Identity and held in a connected Non-Custodial Wallets can be used for Swap transactions. Digital Assets resulting from a Swap transaction can be stored either to the source address or to any other address.
VI. ON-CHAIN FEES AND CHARGES
- You understand and acknowledge that all on-chain transactions incur Gas fees upon execution. Before submitting a transfer or a Swap transaction the Nexo Wallet will present you with an estimation of the Gas fee, required for the fulfillment of your desired transaction. The Nexo Wallet will pay on your behalf Gas fees associated with your desired transaction. Upon completion of your transaction the Nexo Wallet will deduct the actual Gas fee amount from the transacted amount.
- Additionally, you may incur charges from relevant third-parties for the use of Available Protocols, such as but not limited to the Dapps, which you may access through your Nexo Wallet. While Nexo may collect such fees for the purpose of intermediating transactions, such fees are not charged by Nexo in relation to the Services offered by Nexo on the Nexo Defi Platform.
VII. SWAP TRANSACTIONS
- The Nexo Wallet facilitates Client access to decentralized exchanges called DEX Aggregator Protocols and Dapps where you can perform Swap transactions using the Digital Assets stored in your Nexo Wallet.
- A Swap transaction involves the exchange of one Digital Asset for another Digital Asset on the basis of the exchange’s established rate for the particular Trading Pair.
- Since decentralized exchanges are third-party services launched on a supported blockchain, swapping Digital Assets imposes Gas fees.
- You may incur additional fees resulting from the initiated Swap, depending on your Dapp of choice. Such fees are governed by the relevant terms of the particular decentralized exchange.
- When executing a Swap transaction you may choose from a variety of Supported Blockchain Networks offering aggregated Digital Asset liquidity through third-party decentralized exchanges.
- You understand and agree that, due to the volatility of the involved Digital Assets, each Swap transaction is susceptible to Slippage which will affect the quantity of the Counter Digital Asset. You will need to set the Slippage tolerance, that will be applied by the Nexo Wallet when carrying out Swap transactions. A Swap transaction will only be carried out if the Slippage is within the tolerance that you have set.
VIII. STORING AND TRANSFERRING DIGITAL ASSETS
- The Nexo Wallet enables you to receive, store and transfer Digital Assets. You may store and transact the Digital Assets at any time by authorising a Digital Assets transfer from your Nexo Wallet through your Signer. You can subsequently use the Digital Assets stored in your Nexo Wallet for the related Services and linked Dapps.
- You are responsible for making sure that: (i) you have the correct address for your Nexo Wallet when you transfer Digital Assets from any Signer; (ii) the Digital Assets you send to your Nexo Wallet are currently approved and supported by Nexo and not subject to prohibitions or limitations, as indicated on the Nexo Defi Platform. If you transfer Digital Assets to an incorrect address, or if the Digital Assets transferred are not approved and supported by Nexo, or are subject to prohibitions or limitations regarding such transactions, as indicated in the Nexo Wallet and on the Nexo Defi Platform, your Digital Assets will be irreversibly lost. We will not be liable to you for any such loss.
- The Nexo Wallet, being a decentralized on-chain wallet, processes all Digital Asset transfers automatically according to your instructions and thus Nexo cannot guarantee the identity of any recipient. It is up to you to verify all transaction information prior to authorizing a transfer. The Digital Asset transfer cannot be cancelled or reversed once conducted. You understand that following approved on-chain transactions are irreversible. You acknowledge that you are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of any instructions input to the Nexo Wallet and that any errors may result in the irreversible loss of your Digital Asset.
- We have no control over, or liability for, the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of your on-chain interactions with a third party. We are not responsible for ensuring that a third-party vendor you transact with will complete the transaction or is authorized to do so. If you experience a problem with any third party transactions, using Digital Assets transferred from your Nexo Wallet, or if you have a dispute with such a third party, you shall resolve the dispute directly with that third party.
- You understand and acknowledge that your non-fungible Digital Assets - NFTs may be subject to terms and conditions imposed by third-parties (for example an NFT marketplace or platform on which you purchased said NFT) which may govern, without limitation, your use, storage and transfer of your NFTs. It is your responsibility to understand such third-party terms and conditions and whether your use, sharing, storage and transfer of your NFTs complies with such third-party terms and conditions.
- You represent and warrant that you have the necessary rights to use, store, share, display, receive and transfer your NFTs and such use, storage, sharing, displaying, receiving, and transferring of your NFTs will not infringe on the rights of any third party or breach any applicable laws.
- When transferring your NFT from your Nexo Wallet, you are responsible for ensuring that the recipient wallet address supports the storage of NFTs, is a valid address compatible with the supported NFT standards as indicated on the Nexo Defi Platform. We are not liable for any losses of your NFT and will not assist in retrieving such lost NFT if you fail to do so.
- Should, in accordance with Art. XVI.3, your access to the Nexo Wallet be suspended, your Identity will no longer be able to interact with the Nexo Wallet and the Services provided therein. Your Identity and its content will remain unimpacted and at your disposal. You will be able to retrieve your Digital Assets to your External Non-Custodial Wallet.
- The Nexo Wallet facilitates access to certain whitelisted Lending Protocols. Such Lending Protocols may, occasionally, accept liquidity by means of Digital Asset deposits in publically announced Pools and in return compensate liquidity providers with Interest in the form of Digital Assets.
- Nexo has sole and absolute discretion to determine which Lending Protocol is available through the Nexo Wallet. The number, currency, and duration of the available Pools depend on the Lending Protocol. As such, Nexo does not guarantee the unlimited support and availability of any particular Lending Protocol and respective Pool. Furthermore, Nexo has no discretion or control with respect to the Pool size or the respective payout and/or the allocation schedule of the accrued Interest.
- At no point does Nexo take custody of any deposited Digital Assets. Each deposit and withdrawal is initiated by the Nexo Wallet as an on-chain transaction, while the Interest is generated and paid out by the respective Lending Protocol. As such the Interest- and/or reward-generation conditions established by the Lending Protocol per Pool apply.
- You may deposit your Digital Assets from either of a) your Identity, b) a connected External Non-Custodial Wallet, or c) another unconnected wallet. Upon successful deposit transaction, your designated source address will be credited the selected amount and the designated Pool will be debited the selected amount net of any applicable Gas fees. Nexo reserves the right to apply a minimum transaction amount.
- You may, at any time, withdraw your deposited Digital Assets along with the accrued Interest and applicable rewards, if any, to either of a) your Identity, b) a connected External Non-Custodial Wallet, or c) another unconnected wallet. Following a successful withdrawal transaction, your designated destination address will be debited the total available amount net of applicable Gas fees and withdrawal fees indicated in the Nexo Wallet section in the platform Help Center, if any.
X. RISK DISCLOSURE
- Digital Assets are more volatile relative to most fiat currencies, and other assets, and this unpredictability of their price may result in significant losses over a short period of time. We are not responsible for the Digital Assets market, and we make no representations or warranties concerning the real or perceived value of any Digital Assets and the quality, suitability, truth, usefulness, accuracy, or completeness of any data provided by Nexo. You shall, therefore, carefully consider whether holding Digital Assets is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.
- Digital Assets are not money or legal tender, are not backed by the government or by a central bank, and most do not have any underlying assets, revenue stream, or another source of value.
- The regulatory status of Digital Assets is currently unsettled, varies among jurisdictions and is subject to significant uncertainty. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions relating to Digital Assets or blockchain technology at a state or international level may adversely affect or restrict, as applicable, the use, transfer, exchange and value of the Digital Assets, as well as the provision of the Nexo Wallet or any of the Services on the Nexo Defi Platform. The value of the Digital Assets may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currencies for Digital Assets, which may result in permanent and total loss of value of a particular Digital Asset should the market for it disappear.
- Also, some Digital Assets transactions are deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not always the date or time that you initiated the transaction. Digital Assets ownership is often determined by a decentralized public ledger and usually cannot be cancelled or reversed.
- The nature of Digital Assets may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyberattacks, and any losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions will likely not be recoverable.
- Keep in mind that we do not provide investment advice and the information coming from Nexo shall not be used as a basis for making decisions about investing in a particular Digital Asset.

- It is important that you understand that the underlying protocols of the Digital Assets’ networks are subject to sudden changes in operating rules, and third parties may, from time to time, create a copy of a Digital Asset’s network and implement changes in the operating rules or other features that might result in multiple versions of the network and more than one version of the Digital Asset. This may affect the value and the function, and/or name of the initial Digital Asset. Upon becoming aware of a Fork and to the extent we have any rights or are able to take any action in the event of a Fork, we may temporarily suspend our Services (with or without advance notice to you) while we determine, at our sole and absolute discretion, which network to support.
- Such networks and forked Digital Assets are outside of our control, and we can decide, at our sole and absolute discretion, to abandon or otherwise not support the initial or the Fork of the Digital Asset. While you are entitled to any forked Digital Assets, any Digital Assets unsupported by Nexo that you receive in your paired External Non-Custodial Wallet or your Identity, will not be visible in your Nexo Wallet.

XV. PRIVACY NOTICE
- Your Identity and, subsequently the Nexo Wallet, is a decentralized smart contract connected to your Signer and its corresponding blockchain address. Setting up an Identity does not require the collection of any personal data by Nexo for verification purposes. By creating and deploying your Identity, Nexo stores the address of your Signer and all associated External Non-Custodial Wallets. In that regard, we do not use browser cookies and we do not collect your IP address, social media profiles, KYC-related and other personal data. Except for blockchain addresses (Signer and Identity addresses, as well as, some data regarding NFTs and ENSs connected to your profile), Nexo does not collect or process any personal data of its Clients.
- When operating with your Nexo Wallet, Nexo has access to and may track transaction data for the purpose of complying with these General Terms, the Applicable law and the relevant sanction regimes.
- The Nexo Wallet is built on blockchain technology. Accordingly, by design, and practically, the records cannot be changed or deleted and are thus ‘immutable’. To the extent that you have made certain personal identifiers publically available, this may affect your ability to exercise your rights, such as your right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’), or your rights to object or restrict processing of your personal data. On-chain data cannot be erased and cannot be changed.
- In relation to Section XVI.3 Letter b) Nexo reserves the right to request additional information and supporting documentation in relation to personal identifiers, for the purpose of cooperating with regulatory demands.

- The storage and transferring of Digital Assets into your Nexo Wallet may be subject to certain limits imposed by Nexo (as may be amended from time to time at Nexo sole and absolute discretion). In addition to the Digital Assets listed on the Nexo Defi Platform, you may import Digital Assets whitelisted by Nexo to your Nexo Wallet. The whitelisting process applied by Nexo is only aimed at assisting you with securely identifying the address associated with the particular Digital Asset, and does not provide any additional guaranties regarding the characteristics of said Digital Asset.
- Nexo may, at any time and without liability, terminate, suspend, limit your use, or the functionality, of the Nexo Wallet, including but not limited to: (a) in the event of any breach by you of these General Terms and any other applicable terms, or any Applicable Law; (b) for the purposes of complying with a regulator’s demand, a court order, an act of any governmental authority, or any Applicable Law; (c) upon Nexo’s suspicion that a transaction or your use of the Nexo Wallet may be connected with any unlawful activities (such as money laundering, terrorist financing, as well as fraudulent activities); (d) any of your External Non-Custodial Wallets or your Signer is subject to any legal proceedings; (e) for compliance and monitoring reasons, including in case of a discrepancy between your spending profile and the type of consumer group you belong to; (f) for maintenance of the system; or (g) if there is a change in the eligibility criteria for setting up a Nexo Wallet.
- Nexo may, at any time and without liability: (a) update or change any features, components or content of the Nexo Wallet, cease to accept and support any Digital Assets, determined as per Nexo’s sole and absolute discretion. We do not guarantee that any such specific content, component, feature or Digital Asset will always be available to you; or (b) suspend, terminate, cancel or change any incentive program and/or any pay-out in regard thereto.
- If we decide to undertake any of the actions under Art. XVI.3 and XVI.4, we will provide you with adequate notice of this unless it is impractical, impossible or illegal to do so. Reinstatement is possible once the reasons for the relevant suspension or limitation no longer exist.
- Your obligations under these General Terms will continue in the event of any limitation, suspension, reversal or termination under Art. XVI.3 and XVI.4 and you will not be released from any liability having arisen prior to such.
- Nexo shall not owe you any payment, compensation or damages in relation to any suspension, limitation, or termination of your use of the Nexo Wallet, regardless of the reason therefor.
- Our rights for suspension, limitation, and termination under this Section XVI shall be without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that we may have (whether under these General Terms, Applicable Law or otherwise).
- You may, at any time, suspend or terminate your access to and use of any of the Nexo Wallet. In order to do so, you shall submit a request to Nexo. You hereby acknowledge and agree that you will be subject to such terms and conditions as we may consider applicable to such suspension, termination or closing and that the relevant Nexo Wallet will not be accessible thereafter. Due to the inherent nature of smart contracts, however, Nexo may not delete the Nexo Wallet itself on your behalf.
