1.1. Bequant Global, either itself or through its affiliates, accepts direct transfers of USD (United States Dollar), EUR (Euro) and GBP (British Pound Sterling) and any other currency we may accept from time to time as notified to you via the Site. Once your fiat currency has been accepted on the Exchange Platform you can exchange it to your cryptocurrency of choice, subject to availability on the Exchange Platform and provided that they are supported cryptocurrencies by Bequant Global. The list of cryptocurrencies we offer for spot purchases with fiat currency are as set out on our Site from time to time.
1.2. Bequant Global will only accept payments of fiat currency made from your Authorised Bank Account. No third-party transfers will be permitted. The Authorised Bank Account is the bank that you listed during your account verification process unless you have duly notified us of the change in advance according to our procedures notified to you from time to time or on request.
1.3. Should you make a payment from an unauthorised bank account we reserve the right to return the money net of any associated transaction fees.
1.4. Bequant Global will only accept fiat currency deposit and withdrawal requests from fully verified users. Bank account details (and any changes) are subject to verification of your bank account.

Re-verification of bank accounts may be subject to our standard charges.
1.6. We partner with one or more fully regulated third party bank providers to allow users of the Exchange Platform to deposit and withdraw supported currencies.

2.1. Bequant Global accepts cryptocurrency deposits of cryptocurrencies that are available on the Exchange Platform from time to time. Deposits are made to your Bequant Global Wallet following the procedures notified to you from time to time on the Site.
2.2. Deposits are subject to any minimum or maximum limits applied by us from time to time.
2.3. We will provide your Account with one or more applicable deposit addresses (each a “Deposit Address”), unless otherwise restricted under these User Terms and Conditions (and may, from time to time, allow for the use of more than one Deposit Address in respect of any cryptocurrency, at our discretion).
2.4. When you make an instruction to transfer the applicable cryptocurrencies to a Deposit Address (each such transfer, a “Deposit”):
2.5. Your Account Balance is not your wallet. Your Account Balance is the balance of cryptocurrencies that we reflect in our books and records as credited to your Account.

2.6. You agree that it is your responsibility to ensure that instructions, Orders or transactions sent to us are well-formatted, clear and denominated in the correct cryptocurrencies. In particular, you must transfer the correct cryptocurrencies to the Deposit Address. We are not liable for any inaccuracies, omissions or other errors with respect to any Deposit. In particular, without prejudice to the foregoing, we have no obligation to return any cryptocurrency that has been transferred to a Deposit Address that is controlled by or associated with us, in circumstances where (i) we do not support that cryptocurrency or the blockchain or protocol pursuant to which it was transferred or (ii) the cryptocurrency has been transferred to the wrong Deposit Address.
3.1. Withdrawals are made from your Bequant Global Wallet following the procedures notified to you from time to time on the Site.
3.2. Withdrawals are subject to any minimum or maximum limits applied by us from time to time.
3.3. When you instruct us to transfer to you an amount of cryptocurrencies from your available Account Balance (a “Withdrawal”), you must provide an appropriate withdrawal address (“Withdrawal Address”) for the transfer of cryptocurrencies to you. When we determine that your instruction is valid, we will deduct from your Account Balance the amount set out in your instruction; when such deduction has occurred, we then transfer an equivalent amount of cryptocurrencies to your Withdrawal Address minus any applicable transaction fees (including, without limitation, any applicable mining fees). We are not liable for any inaccuracies, omissions or other errors with respect to any Withdrawal.
3.4. In respect of each Withdrawal Address you provide to us and/or save and register with your Account:
We may allow you to save and register one or more Withdrawal Addresses with your Account.
3.5. We will process Withdrawals in accordance with our withdrawal policies (collectively the Withdrawal Policies), as may be stated on the Site from time to time. We may amend the Withdrawal Policies at our sole and absolute discretion without prior notice to you. Unless otherwise stated in our Withdrawal Policies, it is your responsibility to specify and pay any applicable network fees (and in any event any such network fee shall be at least the minimum amount required by us) in respect of any Withdrawal. Where a network or transaction fee can or must be paid in a cryptocurrency other than the cryptocurrency that is the subject of a Withdrawal, we reserve the right to require payment of any such fee in an alternative cryptocurrency (and to deduct from your Account any amount payable pursuant to this Clause). We do not guarantee that a withdrawal will be processed, broadcast, or confirmed within any defined timeframe or number of confirmations. We are not responsible for any delay in confirmation or processing of any Withdrawal.
4.1. If you hold more than one Account, we may provide the option of linking your Accounts at our sole and absolute discretion, and to allow transfers of cryptocurrencies from one Account to another Account by making a Withdrawal from one Account to the Deposit Address of the other Account.
4.2. If we approve a cryptocurrency transfer at your request, we will deduct the relevant amount from the balance of cryptocurrencies that we reflect in our books and records in respect of the transferor Account and credit the balance of cryptocurrencies that we reflect in our books and records in respect of the transferee Account. Such transfers will not be sent to the applicable blockchain and are solely what Bequant Global reflects in its books and records as available to be used by you in respect of the Services.
5.1. The protocol underlying a cryptocurrency may change or otherwise cease to operate as expected due to changes made to its underlying technology or changes resulting from an attack. These changes may include, without limitation, a “fork”, a “rollback”, an “airdrop”, or a “bootstrap”. We are not responsible for the operation of these underlying protocols and are not able to guarantee the functionality or security of those networks’ operations. You acknowledge and accept the risk that underlying software protocols relating to any cryptocurrency you hold in your Bequant Global Wallet may change.
5.2. We will not support any change to the protocol of a cryptocurrency unless we choose to do so. Any action that we take with respect to any change to or cessation of any underlying blockchain or asset protocol will be determined by us at our sole and absolute discretion, including (without limitation) in relation to the crediting (or otherwise) of any asset associated with any change and the selection of which blockchain (if any) is the successor to any blockchain, asset or protocol version.
5.3. In the event that we determine to support a change to the protocol of a cryptocurrency (including forks) then we will use our reasonable endeavours to notify you of the proposed response and how we may assist you with the new cryptocurrencies arising, if any. We may impose requirements on you in relation to a supported change in protocol, for example we may require you to hold the forking currency on your Account.
6.1. Bequant Global will provide you with access to your Bequant Global Wallet for holding your cryptocurrencies on the Exchange Platform. The Bequant Global Wallet allows you to store, track and transfer and manage your Account Balances of cryptocurrencies. The Bequant Global Wallet is limited to use to store cryptocurrencies which you have purchased through our Services and on the Bequant Exchange Platform.
6.2. We securely store Cryptocurrency private keys, which are used to process transactions, in a combination of online and offline storage. As a result of our security protocols, it may be necessary for us to retrieve private keys or related information from offline storage in order to facilitate Cryptocurrency Transfers in accordance with your instructions, and you acknowledge that this may delay the initiation or crediting of such Cryptocurrency Transfers. Cryptocurrencies held in your Bequant Global Wallet are held by Bequant Global for your benefit on a custodial basis. Among other things, this means:
6.3. Bequant Global is under no obligation to provide any replacement cryptocurrencies in the event that any cryptocurrencies, password or private key is lost, stolen, malfunctioning, destroyed or otherwise inaccessible.
6.4. Bequant Global may at its absolute discretion delegate certain custody services to third party service providers or to any other person as a sub-custodian or otherwise to hold cryptocurrencies, which may be unaffiliated and/or affiliate companies including unregulated companies. Bequant Global will exercise all reasonable skill and care in the selection, appointment and periodic review of these affiliates, agents and any service providers, but, subject to clause 6.5 below will not be held liable for any acts or omissions of these third party service providers, including cases of dissolution or insolvency or failures in custodianship.
6.5. Bequant Global will accept responsibility to you for any delegate it has appointed to custody your cryptocurrencies which is a Bequant Group Member.
7.1. User understands that Bequant Global alone is not able to provide market liquidity and that this is dependent upon the entire market as a whole and the liquidity provided by counterparty exchanges and the client understands that without liquidity, trading on exchanges may be delayed, difficult or not possible particularly when markets are volatile and User expressly accepts this risk.
1.1. We provide the following Services under these User Terms and Conditions:
