Cryptocurrency assets are not suitable for all individuals as there is considerable potential and substantial risk of losses related to cryptocurrencies, validator nodes, masternoding, lending, staking, pooling, mining, and all other cryptocurrency income generation methods. BnBS encourages users to conduct appropriate research prior to utilizing BnBS Products & Services or accepting this agreement.
BnBS accepts no responsibility for any loss or financial damage under any circumstances.

Blockchain technology has been proven to be susceptible to Internet Viruses, Cyber Attacks, other exploits and Security Breaches.
There is an inherent risk of 3rd party system failure which means that assets, orders, profits may be delayed, missing or lost. Users acknowledge that there are inherent risks associated with utilizing unregulated internet based cryptocurrency income generation. These risks include but are not limited to the failure of hardware, software, internet connections, malicious software or virus, unauthorized access to information or assets, cyber-attack, network failure, communication failure, errors, lost funds, failed transactions, malware, equipment failure, spoofing and any other attacks.

BnBS Products & Services will utilize Virtual Private Server (VPS) services. This will ensure optimal uptime for validator nodes requiring the use of additional technology and hardware. These 3rd party VPS services are unbiased and are not under the control in any way by BnBS. Therefore, there is a 3rd party risk of loss of treasury assets beyond the control of BnBS. These 3rd party VPS services are subject risks including but are not limited to the failure of hardware, software, internet connections, malicious software or virus, unauthorized access to information or assets, cyber-attack, network failure, communication failure, errors, lost funds, failed transactions, malware, equipment failure, spoofing and any other attacks.

Users and BnBS agree to make reasonable, good faith efforts to informally resolve any dispute before you initiate formal dispute resolution. You agree to send BnBS a written notice that describes the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and sets forth the relief sought.

FOR RESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES & OTHER JURISDICTIONS THAT ENFORCE BINDING ARBITRATION: YOU AND BnBS AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM, OR CONTROVERSY BETWEEN YOU AND BnBS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OR TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH BnBS AS A USER OF THE SERVICE (WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER THE CLAIMS ARISE DURING OR AFTER THE TERMINATION OF THE SERVICE) WILL BE DETERMINED BY MANDATORY BINDING INDIVIDUAL (NOT CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR ACTION) ARBITRATION. YOU AND BnBS FURTHER AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR SHALL HAVE THE EXCLUSIVE POWER TO RULE ON HIS OR HER OWN JURISDICTION, INCLUDING ANY OBJECTIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE EXISTENCE, SCOPE OR VALIDITY OF THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT OR TO THE ARBITRABILITY OF ANY CLAIM OR COUNTERCLAIM.
Arbitration is a proceeding before a neutral arbitrator, instead of before a judge or jury. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court, and provides more limited discovery. It follows different rules than court proceedings, and is subject to very limited review by courts. The arbitrator will issue a written decision and provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND TO HAVE A TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.
USERS AND BnBS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER (OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE OR ACTION) IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR, REPRESENTATIVE, OR ACTION.
Unless both you and BNBS agree, no arbitrator or judge may allow more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and the arbitrator specifically does not have the power to alter this. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this Section’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
Unless BnBS expressly agrees in writing to the contrary, the parties shall keep confidential all awards and orders in any arbitration pursuant to this section, as well as all materials in the arbitral proceedings created for the purpose of the arbitration and all other documents produced by another party in the arbitral proceedings not otherwise in the public domain; provided that the foregoing shall not prevent either party from making any disclosure of such to the extent that disclosure is required of a Party by a legal duty, to protect or to pursue a legal right, or to enforce or challenge an award in legal proceedings before the appropriate court or other judicial authority. You and BnBS agree that the US Federal Arbitration Act applies and governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, to the extent applicable.

Therefore, BnBS has halted all operations, halted minting of NFTs, and further purchases of cryptocurrency assets. BnBS will discontinue its Products & Services and wind down the project. Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services will offer to purchase previously minted NFTS from holders through the OpenSea NFT collection for BnBS: (https://opensea.io/collection/bourbon-n-blockchain). NFT holders have the option to accept the offer from Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services. NFT holders who wish to accept the offer will be required to log onto the OpenSea website, connect their cryptocurrency wallet containing the BnBS NFTs, and accept the purchase agreement.

Amendment to BnBS TOS:

It should be noted that this buyback initiative was not included in the Terms of Service (TOS) agreement that was accepted by users at the time of the NFT purchase. According to the initial Terms of Service, “By purchasing a BnBS NFT, and using BnBS Products & Services, you knowingly and willingly agree to be bound by these Terms of Service.” In order to establish the buyback initiative, this amendment has been added to the Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services Terms of Service (TOS) agreement. All Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services club members are encouraged to review the (Risk Disclosure) section of the TOS. Specific areas to highlight:
  • “BnBS offers no guarantee of income or ROI (Return On Investment) to users who participate in the procurement of BnBS NFTs or participate in BnBS Products & Services. There is no guarantee of avoiding losses when participating in validator nodes, masternoding, pooling, staking, lending, mining and all other cryptocurrency income generation methods under decentralized currencies.”
  • “BnBS along with its Team Members, Directors, Officers, Agents, Employees, or any other representative do not guarantee repayment of capital or payment of income in relation to any funds used for NFT asset procurement with the company or any future income generated through the protocol and its Products & Services.”
  • “Users must be aware of the risks inherent to the above mentioned cryptocurrency income generation methods and are financially able to bear the risks associated and withstand any losses incurred.”
All Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services club members are encouraged to review the (BnBS Service Fee and Payments) section of the TOS. Specific areas to highlight:
  • “User purchases of any BnBS items are final, non-refundable sales, except where specifically noted otherwise.”
  • “Any refunds for purchases following your instructions shall be at BnBS’s sole, unfettered, and exclusive discretion, and provided only on an exceptional basis.”
All Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services club members are encouraged to review the (Assets and Intellectual Property) section of the TOS. Specific areas to highlight:
  • “BnBS provides no guarantee or promise of income or rewards to any party that purchases, owns, or uses an NFT asset created by BnBS. At no time does BnBS relinquish any ownership rights to the company, assets, treasury, or any other property belonging to BnBS to any individual through the sale of NFT items”.
This buyback initiative will be a limited time offer to purchase previously minted NFTs. The window to accept the offer will be open for approximately 30 days from when the initial offers are made. All sales are final. Failure to accept the offer within the allotted window will result in forfeiture of funds.

Summary:

In summary, due to unforeseen circumstances that directly affected the Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services protocol, BnBS intends to waive portions of the previously agreed upon terms of service in order to provide a reasonable buyback offer to NFT holders based on the available assets claimable at the time of the offer. BnBS also reserves the right to deny a reasonable buyback offer for individuals who violate sections of the BnBS TOS, community guidelines, and discord rules and regulations. BnBS maintains sole, unfettered, and exclusive discretion regarding the terms outlined herein. Failure to accept the offer from BnBS will result in forfeiture of funds. There will be no additional buyback periods. The terms of the buyback initiative are “as is” and “as available”, are non-negotiable and final. All sales/transfers/buybacks are final, no refunds or exchanges. This statement/amendment is intended as an update for informational purposes, and does not replace the original Terms of Service and Disclosure Policy as it relates to Bourbon-n-Blockchain Services. All Terms of Service and Disclosure Policy content remains applicable.
