Nature of the Whitepaper: This document is issued by ARC Trading Terminal Ltd (the Whitepaper). It is a conceptual paper that is envisaged to form the basis for the establishment and creation of a crypto-economic token to be known as ARC token ($ARC). The Whitepaper and the Website are intended for general informational purposes only and do not constitute a prospectus, an offer document, an offer of securities, a solicitation for investment, or any offer to sell any product, item or asset (whether digital or otherwise). The information herein may not be exhaustive and does not imply any element of a contractual relationship. There is no assurance as to the accuracy or completeness of such information and no representation, warranty or undertaking is or purported to be provided as to the accuracy or completeness of such information. Where the Whitepaper or the Website includes information that has been obtained from third party sources, the Company, the Distributor, their respective affiliates and/or the ARC team have not independently verified the accuracy or completion of such information. Further, you acknowledge that circumstances may change and that the Whitepaper or the Website may become outdated as a result; and neither the Company nor the Distributor is under any obligation to update or correct this document in connection therewith.
Project purpose: All contributions will be applied towards the advancing, promoting the research, design and development of a multimarket aggregator to provide the user with the best experience, the lowest prices and the most efficient dashboard in the crypto sphere. You agree that you are purchasing $ARC to participate in the ARC platform and to obtain services on the ecosystem thereon. The Company, the Distributor and their respective affiliates would develop and contribute to the underlying source code for the ARC platform. The Company is acting solely as an arms’ length third party in relation to the $ARC sale, and not in the capacity as a financial advisor or fiduciary of any person with regard to the sale of $ARC.
Token Documentation: Nothing in the Whitepaper or the Website constitutes any offer by the Company, the Distributor or the ARC team to sell any $ARC (as defined herein) nor shall it or any part of it nor the fact of its presentation form the basis of, or be relied upon in connection with, any contract or investment decision.
Nothing contained in the Whitepaper, or the website is or may be relied upon as a promise, representation or undertaking as to the future performance of the ARC platform. The agreement between the Distributor (or any third party) and you, in relation to any sale, purchase, or other distribution or transfer of $ARC, is to be governed only by the separate terms and conditions of such agreement. The information set out in the Whitepaper and the website is for community discussion only and is not legally binding. No person is bound to enter any contract or binding legal commitment in relation to the acquisition of $ARC, and no virtual currency or other form of payment is to be accepted on the basis of the Whitepaper or the website. The agreement for sale and purchase of $ARC and/or continued holding of
$ARC shall be governed by a separate set of Terms and Conditions or Token Purchase Agreement (as the case may be) setting out the terms of such purchase and/or continued holding of $ARC (the Terms and Conditions), which shall be separately provided to you or made available on the Website. The Terms and Conditions must be read together with the Whitepaper. In the event of any inconsistencies between the Terms and Conditions and the Whitepaper or the Website, the Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
$ARC Token: The native cryptographically-secured fungible protocol token of the ARC platform (ticker symbol $ARC) is a transferable representation of attributed utility functions specified in the protocol/code of the ARC platform, and which is designed to be used solely as an interoperable utility token thereon. $ARC is a functional multi-utility token which will be used as the medium of exchange between participants on the ARC platform in a decentralised manner. The goal of introducing $ARC is to provide a convenient and secure mode of payment and settlement between participants who interact within the ecosystem on the ARC platform without any intermediaries such as centralised third party entity/institution/credit. It is not, and not intended to be, a medium of exchange accepted by the public (or a section of the public) as payment for goods or services or for the discharge of a debt; nor is it designed or intended to be used by any person as payment for any goods or services whatsoever that are not exclusively provided by the issuer. $ARC does not in any way represent any shareholding, participation, right, title, or interest in the Company, the Distributor, their respective affiliates, or any other company, enterprise or undertaking, nor will $ARC entitle token holders to any promise of fees, dividends, revenue, profits or investment returns, and are not intended to constitute securities in Singapore or any relevant jurisdiction. $ARC may only be utilised on the ARC platform, and ownership of $ARC carries no rights, express or implied, other than the right to use $ARC as a means to enable usage of and interaction within the ARC platform.
Further, $ARC provides the economic incentives which will be distributed to encourage users to exert efforts towards contribution and participation in the ecosystem on the ARC platform, thereby creating a mutually beneficial system where every participant is fairly compensated for its efforts. $ARC is an integral and indispensable part of the ARC platform, because without $ARC, there would be no incentive for users to expend resources to participate in activities or provide services for the benefit of the entire ecosystem on the ARC platform.
Given that additional $ARC will be awarded to a user based only on its actual usage, activity and efforts made on the ARC platform and/or proportionate to the frequency and volume of transactions, users of the ARC platform and/or holders of $ARC which did not actively participate will not receive any $ARC incentives.
$ARC are designed to be utilised, and that is the goal of the $ARC distribution. In particular, it is highlighted that $ARC:
(a) does not have any tangible or physical manifestation, and does not have any intrinsic value (nor does any person make any representation or give any commitment as to its value);
(b) is non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash (or its equivalent value in any other digital asset) or any payment obligation by the Company, the Distributor or any of their respective affiliates;
(c) does not represent or confer on the token holder any right of any form with respect to the Company, the Distributor (or any of their respective affiliates), or its revenues or assets, including without limitation any right to receive future dividends, revenue, shares, ownership right or stake, share or security, any voting, distribution, redemption, liquidation, proprietary (including all forms of intellectual property or licence rights), right to receive accounts, financial statements or other financial data, the right to requisition or participate in shareholder meetings, the right to nominate a director, or other financial or legal rights or equivalent rights, or intellectual property rights or any other form of participation in or relating to the ARC platform, the Company, the Distributor and/or their service providers;
(d) is not intended to represent any rights under a contract for differences or under any other contract the purpose or pretended purpose of which is to secure a profit or avoid a loss;
(e) is not intended to be a representation of money (including electronic money), security, commodity, bond, debt instrument, unit in a collective investment scheme or any other kind of financial instrument or investment;
(f) is not a loan to the Company, the Distributor or any of their respective affiliates, is not intended to represent a debt owed by the Company, the Distributor or any of their respective affiliates, and there is no expectation of profit; and
(g) does not provide the token holder with any ownership or other interest in the Company, the Distributor or any of their respective affiliates.
Notwithstanding the $ARC distribution, users have no economic or legal right over or beneficial interest in the assets of the Company, the Distributor, or any of their affiliates after the token distribution.
To the extent a secondary market or exchange for trading $ARC does develop, it would be run and operated wholly independently of the Company, the Distributor, the distribution of $ARC and the ARC platform. Neither the Company nor the Distributor will create such secondary markets nor will either entity act as an exchange for $ARC.

(d) none of the Company, the Distributor, their respective affiliates, and/or the ARC Management members shall be responsible for or liable for the value of $ARC, the transferability and/or liquidity of $ARC and/or the availability of any market for $ARC through third parties or otherwise; and
(e) you acknowledge, understand and agree that you are not eligible to purchase any $ARC if you are a citizen, national, resident (tax or otherwise), domiciliary and/or green card holder of a geographic area or country where it is likely that the sale of $ARC would be construed as the sale of a security (howsoever named), financial service or investment product and/or where participation in token sales is prohibited by applicable law, decree, regulation, treaty, or administrative act (including without limitation the United States of America and the People’s Republic of China); and to this effect you agree to provide all such identity verification document when requested in order for the relevant checks to be carried out.
