The Cryptocurrency Services are not available in the following states: Alaska, Hawaii, Indiana, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island or South Carolina.
These Cryptocurrency Terms and Conditions will be effective as of February 15, 2021.
PART A: BACKGROUND
1. The Cryptocurrency Services
1.1 The “Cryptocurrency Services” are additional services which permit eligible Skrill USA Account holders to:
buy and sell beneficial interests (the “Interests”) in certain Supported Cryptocurrencies using funds held in their Skrill Accounts (“Buy/Sell”). You do not own any specific identifiable cryptocurrency including the Supported Cryptocurrencies. The Interests and the Supported Cryptocurrencies are held apart from Skrill’s corporate assets and Skrill USA will neither use these assets for its operating expenses or any other corporate or business purpose, nor will it voluntarily make the Interests or Supported Cryptocurrencies available to creditors in the event of bankruptcy. Except where prohibited by law or regulation, as security for the performance of your obligations under these Cryptocurrency Terms and Conditions, you grant to Skrill USA a lien on, and security interest in and to, your Interests. Other than our lien and security interest described above (which Skrill will take in your Interests only if doing so is not prohibited by law or regulation), Skrill will not pledge, hypothecate, assign or otherwise encumber your Interests.
1.2 No Investment Advice. As part of the Cryptocurrency Services, we may provide, for educational or background purposes only, information on the price, range, or volatility of the Supported Cryptocurrencies and events that have affected the price of cryptocurrencies generally. This information is not tailored to you or your individual needs. Any such information provided is solely for your personal use and you may not redistribute it to any third party. We will not however provide you with any advice in connection with the Cryptocurrency Services; therefore any such information (whether provided directly by us or via a Cryptocurrency Exchange) should not be relied upon for any investment decision – any decision to buy or sell an Interest in a Supported Cryptocurrency rests with you. You must determine if any particular Cryptocurrency Transaction is appropriate for you, based on your investment objectives, financial circumstances and risk tolerance. Please note there may be tax consequences from any gain or loss you incur when you sell your Interests in the Supported Cryptocurrencies.

We will use reasonable efforts to fulfil your Order Instruction at the price offered but in some circumstances the Cryptocurrency Exchange may not allow us to do so (and may not tell us why). If this happens, we will notify you and ask you to re-authorize the Cryptocurrency Transaction by submitting a new Order Instruction (which may be at a different Buy Price/Sale Price).
4.3 The underlying protocols of the Supported Cryptocurrencies are subject to sudden changes in operating rules (‘forks’). If a fork occurs within the underlying system, we will liaise with the relevant Cryptocurrency Exchange in order to determine the best approach for Skrill USA customers in relation to such event. Any decision made on behalf of Skrill USA customers will be made at Skrill USA’s sole discretion. See Skrill USA Cryptocurrency Services - Risk Disclosures.
4.4 The Cryptocurrency Services are provided without warranty of any kind, either express or implied. We do not represent that the Cryptocurrency Services will be available all of the time to meet your needs. We will use reasonable efforts to provide you with the Cryptocurrency Services as soon as possible but we do not guarantee that access will not be interrupted, or that there will be no delays, failures, errors, omissions or loss of transmitted information.
4.5 We will however use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Cryptocurrency Services can normally be accessed by you in accordance with these Cryptocurrency Terms and Conditions.

The proceeds of such buy back will be credited to the stored value balance in your Skrill USA Account.

9. Crypto to Crypto Transactions
9.1 Our Crypto to Crypto Transactions service enables you to purchase an Interest in a Supported Cryptocurrency using an Interest in another Supported Cryptocurrency to fund the Buy Price.
9.2 You may:
9.2.1 place an instruction for a Crypto to Crypto Transaction; or
