1. GENERAL SERVICES TERMS
1.1 Trading Services: The Party provides online digital asset trading account services and a platform to spot trade digital assets (also known as “convertible virtual currency” in the U.S., “virtual financial assets” in Malta, “virtual commodities” in Hong Kong, “digital payment token” in Singapore, or occasionally by others as “cryptocurrency”, “cryptographic tokens”, “digital tokens”, or “cryptographic currency”), and may facilitate margin lending subject to it being available and if permitted in the relevant jurisdiction. Except as otherwise provided in Section 1.8 or in other product-specific terms of services published on the Site, when you purchase or sell digital assets on Okcoin, you are not buying or selling such digital assets from or to Okcoin. Okcoin’s role is to act as an exchange that facilitates the trading of digital assets by matching orders between you and other Okcoin users. You must open an account and transfer in digital assets or fiat currencies from an outside account held in your name prior to the commencement of trading.
1.2 Information Accuracy: While the Party has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information on the Site and to give you prior notice of any material change to the information of the Site, the information and content on the Site are subject to change without prior notice and are provided for the sole purpose of assisting users to make independent decisions. The Party has taken reasonable measures to ensure the accuracy of the information on the Site; however, we do not guarantee the accuracy, suitability, reliability, completeness, performance and/or fitness for purpose of the content of any of the Services or products available through the Site, and, to the extent permitted by law, will not accept liability for any loss or damage that may arise directly or indirectly from the content or your inability to access our Site, for any delay in or failure of the transmission or the receipt of any instruction or notifications sent through the Site. Neither the Party, nor any of the Parties, will have any liability, to the extent permitted by law, for the use or interpretation of such information.
1.3 Service Availability: By using our Service, you acknowledge and consent that the Service is provided by the Party according to its current technological capacity and other conditions. While the Party has made every effort to ensure continuity and security of the Services, we are unable to completely foresee and eliminate all legal, technological and other risks including but not limited to force majeure, virus, hacker attack, peak demand, volatility, heavy trading, systems upgrades or maintenance, system instability, flaw in third-party services, act of government, third party actions outside the control of the Party, or other reasons that may result in service interruption, data loss and other losses and risks. You agree and acknowledge the possibility of the discontinuity and disruption of the Service and, subject to these Terms, Okcoin will not be liable to you if you are unable to access your account or request a transaction through the Service. We do not intend to make the Services available in jurisdictions where the provision of such Services is unlawful, and you must not access the Services if you reside in such jurisdiction.
1.4 Fees and Costs: Fees may be incurred for certain Service(s) provided to you. You agree to pay the applicable fees in accordance with our fee schedule as published on the Site and amended from time to time. We may change the fee models and structures of such Service(s) from time to time. We may also start charging fees on free Service(s) at any time. Any change will be made in accordance with these Terms. You shall stop using the Services if you disagree with the above-mentioned changes, modifications or paid content. Please see Section 10 for more information.
In order to access the Services, you must prepare devices and bear costs as follows:
- Internet-connected device, including but not limited to computer or other internet-connected terminals; and
- Internet-accessing costs, including but not limited to internet fees, rental charges for internet-connected equipment, cellular data fees, etc.
1.5 Account Security: We will not ask you to reveal any password or keyphrase, nor will we ask you to transmit any funds or digital assets to bank accounts or addresses that are not listed on our trading platform. Please do not trust any discount or promotion-related information that is not accessed through the Site. To the extent permitted by law, Okcoin will not be responsible for any losses caused by transmitting funds or digital assets to bank accounts or digital asset addresses that are not listed on the Site. Please see Section 4 for more information.
1.6 Service Changes: You agree that we may change or suspend these Services at any time. By continuing to use the Service(s), you agree to the Terms and any other Terms added subsequently. Please see Section 11 for more information.
1.7 User Information: We have the right to investigate and determine transaction background and purpose of your use of the Service(s). You must provide real, comprehensive, up-to-date and accurate information as required by us. Subject to these Terms, we will not assume any responsibility for any losses caused by your failure to provide up-to-date information that results in our inability to reach out to you and give notice of the handling procedures. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you have provided false trading and/or identity information, we are entitled to restrict you from the use of some or all of the Service(s), including products, services and/or functions provided by any of the Parties, either temporarily or permanently.
1.8 Our Role and Associated Order Allocation: We may trade our own corporate funds by using the Service(s) on the Site from time to time. We may, at our sole discretion, enable direct purchase and sale of digital assets between the eligible users and us on the Site from time to time. If we are a party to a transaction on the Site, we may use third party service providers as intermediaries to effect our orders, trades and other transactions and will be treated the same as any other user. If we use the Site to enter into transactions on our own behalf, we will be treated the same as any other user or provided lower priority than other users, in terms of price-time priority and fee structure, other users’ orders, trades or other transactions. As a result, we may learn of certain information that constitutes “insider information” as defined under certain laws or regulations. We will not disclose any such insider information to anyone, and we will not use such insider information to trade in digital assets or attempt in any way to profit from any such insider information. The intent of the above policies is to provide your market orders with the opportunity to be filled at the best possible price (although the prices at which individual orders are filled will vary depending upon changing market conditions).
1.9 Recurring Digital Assets Transactions and Cancellation Policy: If you initiate recurring digital assets transactions, you hereby expressly agree and authorize us to initiate recurring electronic payments in accordance with your selected digital assets transaction(s) and any corresponding payment accounts, including but not limited to, the balance in your Okcoin account, and recurring Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) debit or credit entries (or equivalent payment services) from or to your linked bank account. Your recurring digital assets transactions will occur in identical, periodic installments, based on your period selection until either you or Okcoin cancels the recurring order. You may cancel the recurring digital assets transactions at any time by going to the designated recurring transaction page and selecting the related future recurring transaction for cancellation. Please refer to this FAQ page for information on how to cancel a recurring transaction. You acknowledge and agree that the cancellation will not cancel any transactions that have been, or are being, processed. If your bank is unable to process any electronic ACH debit entry, we may avail ourselves of remedies set forth in these Terms to recover any amount you owe to us including, but not limited to, seizing or liquidating any digital asset purchase price is not delivered due to a cancellation or failure of an ACH deposit. You shall notify us in writing of any changes in your linked bank account information prior to a scheduled recurring digital assets transaction. We may, at any time, terminate recurring transactions by providing notice to you.
1.10 Limited Services Terms: Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if you are directed to this Site through third-party referral channels to complete certain transactions with credit cards, debit cards or local instant transfer methods, you agree and acknowledge that before you agree to these Terms, the services provided to you by us are limited to those transactions, and that irrespective of any use of the words “purchase”, “sale” or similar terms, no full rights and privileges are granted to you under this Agreement. We have no control over, or liability for, the delivery, quality, safety, validity, legality or any other aspect of any goods, services or technology that you may purchase from a third party (hereafter the “Third-Party Services”). We are not responsible for ensuring that a third party you transact with will complete the Third-Party Services or is authorized to do so. Be aware that Third-Party Services may have separate costs and fees associated with the goods, services or technology they provide, which are independent from our fees and are your responsibility. If you experience a problem in relation to the Third-Party Services or if you have a dispute with such third party, you should resolve the dispute directly with that third party. You are fully responsible for all acts or omissions of any third party with access to your Okcoin account. Further, you acknowledge and agree that you will not hold Okcoin responsible for, and will indemnify Okcoin from, any liability arising out of or related to any act or omission of any third party with access to your Okcoin account.

3. RISK DISCLOSURE
3.1 Trading Risk: Trading of digital assets involves significant risk. The risk of loss in trading or holding digital assets can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading in digital assets (or any use of margin if permitted/enabled) is suitable for you in light of your financial condition, tolerance for risk, and investment objectives.
You should exercise prudence in trading in digital assets (as well as any other assets). Prices can and do fluctuate at any moment. Due to such price fluctuations, you may increase or lose value in your assets at any given moment. Any digital asset or trading position may be subject to large swings in value and may even become worthless. Digital assets are not subject to Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”), Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”), the Financial Claims Scheme (“FCS”) or any other kind of deposit insurance or securities investors protection regimes.
3.2 Your Responsibilities: You shall bear any loss as a result of your actions, including, but not limited to:
- “Fat finger” input or instructions errors, including price, quantity, and/or timing (market vs. limit order specification) errors;
- Mis-timing or mis-submission of trade instructions;
- Forgetting or disclosing your password;
- Computer or network issues, including any hacks or virus issues related to your computer or network (or the network you are utilizing);
- Transfer-in or withdrawal of digital assets or fiat currencies to or from the wrong account; or
- Third parties accessing and using your account for any reason.
In the event of your malicious, manipulative, or abusive use of the Service, a violation of these Terms of Service, and/or any other behaviors or methods utilized to gain an unfair advantage, as determined at our sole discretion, we reserve the right to take necessary action, including, but not limited to, closing your account, placing restrictions on account transactions, freezing assets in your account, restricting your access to your account, commencing legal action against you and/or pursuing other measures of recourse. In the event you are not cooperative, you shall bear all costs incurred as a result of any action taken by the Party, including legal fees and costs. In addition, you shall take full responsibility to ensure the account information is verified before making the transfer so that digital assets or fiat currencies are transferred into the correct account. If you transfer digital assets or fiat currencies to a wrong account and such account is controlled by us, we will have the sole discretion to reject the transaction in relation to which the transfer was made, and return to you the relevant amount of digital assets or fiat currencies (after deduction of applicable handling fees).

You are responsible for creating strong Credentials and maintaining security and control of any and all Credentials that you use to access the Services. If you lose your Credentials, you may not be able to access your account.

If there are any digital assets remaining in your account, you agree to provide us with a digital asset address held in your name upon receiving written notice, so that we can return the remaining digital assets to you.
4.7 Reversals and Cancellations: You agree and understand that you cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction that has been marked as complete in your account. We reserve the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any transaction conducted under your account in our sole discretion, even after funds have been debited from your account, and we are under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a purchase or sale order at the same price or on the same terms as the canceled transaction:

- if there was disruption or malfunction in the operation of any trading system; or
- if there were extraordinary market conditions or other circumstances in which the nullification or modification of transactions may be necessary.
4.8. Right of Offset and Recoveries: In the event that there are outstanding amounts owed to us hereunder, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to freeze your account and debit your account accordingly, and/or withhold amounts from funds you may transfer into your account, and/or dispose, at our sole discretion, any or all digital assets available in your account at a market rate of exchange in order to offset any amounts owed to us, and you acknowledge that you will be solely responsible for any and all tax consequences of any such liquidation of digital assets. In the event that the disposition or liquidation of digital assets is inadequate to satisfy the outstanding amount(s), you agree that you are required to immediately deliver, in U.S. Dollars (or, if applicable, the fiat currency relevant to your jurisdiction), the full amount outstanding. If you fail to do so, you will become liable to Okcoin not only for the amount outstanding, but also for the attorney’s fees, interest and expenses associated with its recovery.

By agreeing to these Terms, you consent to Okcoin delivering such Communications to you in electronic form. Consent for electronic delivery applies to the statements that are furnished every year. If you no longer have access to your account to receive the disclosures in electronic form, then you may request the disclosures in written form by contacting our Customer Service at email@example.com.
5. TRANSFER-IN AND WITHDRAWAL
For the purpose of these Terms, transfers-in and withdrawals will include transfer and withdrawal of either fiat currency or digital assets into/from your account.
5.1 Fiat Currency: We provide users with various fiat transfer-in and withdrawal options from time to time based on their locations and subject to the laws applicable to the Party, including but not limited to wire transfer, ACH transfer (or equivalent payment services) and indirectly transfer-in and withdrawal into/from the Payment Service Provider (“PSP”) and/or any bank account(s) held by any PSP. The current fiat transfer-in and withdrawal options and fee schedule are available here. Your transfer-in amount in your account will be in a pending state until after the bank transfer has cleared. The name on your bank account linked to your Okcoin account and your transfer must match the name verified on your Okcoin account.
For eligible users, ACH transfer-in may be made available for trading immediately, and you will receive an email confirmation with transaction details upon authorizing any ACH transactions. However, these funds, or any digital assets bought with such funds, may be subject to a withdrawal holdup period of up to ten (10) business days or longer, based on your risk profile as determined at our sole discretion (“Withdrawal Hold Period”). Once your ACH transfer-in is cleared after the ACH Withdrawal Hold Period, you will be able to immediately withdraw these funds and any digital assets purchased with them. In the case that an ACH transfer-in is returned to your bank account, and you had already used the pre-credited funds to buy digital assets, we will debit your account with the same amount that was deposited. If this causes your account balance to go negative, you will have to deliver funds or sell a certain portion or all of your digital assets to bring your account balance back to positive. If you fail to promptly do so after your account goes negative due to, among other things and without limitation, your bank’s failure to process ACH transfer-in, we may, at our sole discretion and subject to applicable law, avail ourselves of remedies set forth in these Terms to recover any amount you owe to us, including but not limited to, selling any digital assets available in your account at a market rate of exchange until such negative balance is recovered.
You agree and acknowledge that the above-mentioned transfer-in and withdrawal options may not be processed outside of normal banking hours, and the settlement times are subject to bank holidays, the internal processes and jurisdiction of your bank, and the internal processes of our banks. You further agree and acknowledge that: (1) in certain situations, the settlement times may be delayed in connection with downtime or disruptions to our service providers that is outside our control; and (2) you are solely responsible for any negative account balances due to a failure to timely transfer-in fiat currency (and we reserve the right to avail ourselves of remedies set forth in these Terms to recover any amount you owe us).
5.2 Digital Assets: Digital asset deposits will typically be credited to your account after the required number of network confirmations, as determined by us in our sole discretion, have occurred on the blockchain for such digital assets. Digital asset withdrawals will typically be processed at the speed of a digital asset network. You agree and acknowledge that digital assets are not legal tender, are not backed by the government, and accounts and value balances are not eligible for the FDIC, SIPC, FCS or any other kind of deposit insurance or securities investors protection regimes. You further agree and acknowledge that digital asset deposits and/or withdrawals may be delayed or impacted by network disruptions or other conditions (whether controlled by us or a third party) out of our control for which we will not be held responsible.
At any time when you transfer-in digital assets to your account or initiate a withdrawal of digital assets from your account, you are required to verify that all steps have been properly taken so as to ensure that the transfer-in or withdrawal is properly made, including that the wallet address that you are initiating such transfer-in from and/or sending a withdrawal to is owned or controlled by you, and that your account is accurately value-added or value-decreased. You are also required and agree to provide all the information requested to Okcoin in order to facilitate the transfer-in or withdrawal service.
5.3. Additional Fees and Charges: You are responsible for paying any additional fees charged by financial service providers (including but not limited to PSPs, banks, and card schemes, hereinafter individually and collectively referred as the “Financial Service Provider(s)”) used to process a transfer to or from your account. We will not process a transfer if associated fees charged by the Financial Service Provider exceed the value of the transfer. You may be required to transfer in additional fiat to cover such fees in order to complete such a transfer.
6. PASS THROUGH FDIC INSURANCE ONLY FOR USD
For U.S. users, the U.S. dollar funds in your account are placed by Okcoin in one or more custodial accounts at one or more FDIC-insured banks for the benefit of its customers, with the intention that the customers be eligible for pass-through FDIC deposit insurance. FDIC pass-through insurance protects U.S. dollar funds held on behalf of a U.S. user against the risk of loss should such FDIC-insured bank(s) fail, subject to the Standard Maximum Deposit Insurance Amount per FDIC regulations and other applicable limitations. For non-U.S. users, non-U.S. dollar deposits held at any bank, as well as U.S dollar deposits held at banks located outside of the U.S., may not be subject to or eligible for FDIC deposit insurance. U.S. Dollar funds in your account are not subject to SIPC protection.
7. OKCOIN THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS

15.6 Risk Warning on Digital Payment Tokens (applicable to users of OKCoin Pte Ltd only): The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) requires us to provide this risk warning to You if you are a customer of a digital payment token (DPT) service provider. The MAS states that before you pay your DPT service provider any money or DPT, you should be aware of the following.
(i) Your DPT service provider is exempted by MAS from holding a license to provide DPT services. Please note that you may not be able to recover all the money or DPTs you paid to your DPT service provider if your DPT service provider’s business fails.
(ii) You should not transact in the DPT if you are not familiar with this DPT. This includes how the DPT is created, and how the DPT you intend to transact is transferred or held by your DPT service provider.
(iii) You should be aware that the value of DPTs may fluctuate greatly. You should buy DPTs only if you are prepared to accept the risk of losing all of the money you put into such tokens.
(iv) You should be aware that your DPT service provider, as part of its license to provide DPT services, may offer services related to DPTs which are promoted as having a stable value, commonly known as “stablecoin."
16. APPLICABLE LAW AND VENUE

17. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
You and the Party agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from these Terms or relating to the Service(s), except that you and the Party are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party exclusively seeks relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents. You and the Party agree that you will notify each other of any dispute within 30 days of when it arises, that you will attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration and that, in the event that the dispute is not informally resolved, the dispute will be submitted to arbitration as follows:
17.1 Users of the Site provided by OKCoin USA Inc.: Binding arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and administered by JAMS (see www.jamsadr.com). The JAMS arbitration shall be conducted in San Francisco, California (or any JAMS Resolution Center which you and the applicable Party agree) before a single JAMS arbitrator, who shall be a retired judicial officer. The JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, as modified by this Agreement, shall apply. Dispositive motions will be allowed, and the arbitrator must follow this Agreement, will have the same power to award damages and relief as a court (including fees), and will issue a binding written decision, which can be enforced by entry of judgment by any court of competent jurisdiction. You agree and understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, the parties would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial, and further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation, and that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. If arbitration before JAMS is unavailable or impossible for any valid reason, such arbitration will be conducted by, and according to the rules and regulations then in effect of, the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The foregoing arbitration provision shall not apply to Okcoin’s efforts to collect a debit balance pursuant to Section 4.8 of this Agreement. In the event that Okcoin seeks collection of a debit balance or outstanding amount pursuant to Section 4.8 of this Agreement, any such legal action may be brought by Okcoin in the Superior Court of California, County of San Francisco, and you submit to the jurisdiction and venue of this court and waive forum non conveniens.

OKCOIN MAY, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, SEEK TO CONSOLIDATE INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS IN A SINGLE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING BEFORE A SINGLE ARBITRATOR PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE JAMS RULES AND PROCEDURES (OR EQUIVALENT RULES AND PROCEDURES OF AAA). YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR CLASS ARBITRATION.
17.2 Users of the Site provided by OKCoin Europe LTD or OKCoin Pte Ltd or OKCoin Technology Company Limited: Binding arbitration administered by an arbitration forum or provider which is mutually agreed to between you and the applicable Party. The arbitration shall be administered in the jurisdiction where the applicable Party (being the entity servicing you based on where you reside) is incorporated and that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator. You and the applicable Party also agree that the courts in the jurisdiction where the applicable Party (being the entity servicing you based on where you reside) is incorporated will have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. You further agree that the parties will not seek discovery from each other in the arbitration, and that the arbitrator shall not allow parties to engage in discovery; rather, each party shall disclose the evidence supporting their positions at some mutually agreeable time and date prior to the final hearing. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed below, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court.
