3. Hosted Digital Currency Wallet.
3.1 In General. The Hosted Digital Currency Wallet services allow you to send supported Digital Currency to, and request, receive, and store supported Digital Currency from, third parties pursuant to instructions you provide through the Mercury Cash Site (each transaction is a «Digital Currency Transaction»). Mercury Cash reserves the right to process or cancel any pending Digital Currency Transaction as required by law or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other binding government order or to enforce transaction limits. Mercury Cash cannot reverse a Digital Currency Transaction which has been broadcast to a Digital Currency network. The Hosted Digital Currency Wallet services are available only in connection with those Digital Currencies that Mercury Cash, in its sole discretion, decides to support. The Digital Currencies that Mercury Cash supports may change from time to time. If you have any questions about which Digital Currencies Mercury Cash currently supports, please contact [email protected] . Under no circumstances you should attempt to use your Hosted Digital Currency Wallet services to store, send, request, or receive digital currencies in any form that are not supported by Mercury Cash. Mercury Cash assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use Mercury Cash Services for digital currencies that Mercury Cash does not support.
3.2 Digital Currency Transactions. Mercury Cash processes supported Digital Currency according to the instructions received from its users and we do not guarantee the identity of any user, receiver, requester, or another party. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to Mercury Cash. In the event that you initiate a Digital Currency Transaction by entering the recipient’s email address and the recipient does not have an existing Mercury Cash Account, Mercury Cash will email the recipient and invite them to open a Mercury Cash Account. If the designated recipient does not open a Mercury Cash Account within 30 days, Mercury Cash will return the supported Digital Currency associated with the transaction to your Mercury Cash Account. Once submitted to a Digital Currency network, a Digital Currency Transaction will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Digital Currency network. A transaction is not complete while it is in a pending state. Funds associated with transactions that are in a pending state will be designated accordingly, and will not be included in your Mercury Cash Account balance or be available to conduct transactions. When Digital Currency Transactions are made from an external Wallet to a Mercury Cash wallet, an Internal Fee will be deducted to the client. Mercury Cash may charge network fees (miner fees) and internal fees to process a Digital Currency transaction on your behalf or at your name. Mercury Cash will calculate the network fee and the internal fee in its discretion.
3.3 Digital Currency Storage & Transmission Delays. Mercury Cash securely stores all Digital Currency private keys in our control in a combination of online and offline storage. As a result, it may be necessary for Mercury Cash to retrieve certain information from offline storage in order to facilitate a Digital Currency Transaction in accordance with your instructions, which may delay the initiation or crediting of such Digital Currency Transaction for 48 hours or more. You acknowledge and agree that a Digital Currency Transaction facilitated by Mercury Cash may be delayed.
3.4 Third Party Payments. Mercury Cash has no control over or liability for, the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services that you may purchase or sell to or from a third party (including other users of Mercury Cash Services). Mercury Cash is not responsible for ensuring that a buyer or a seller you may transact with will actually complete the transaction or is authorized to do so. If you experience a problem with any goods or services purchased from or sold to a third party in connection with Digital Currency transferred using the Mercury Cash Services, or if you have a dispute with such third party, you must resolve the dispute directly with that third party. If you believe a third party has behaved in fraudulent, misleading, or inappropriate manner, or if you cannot adequately resolve a dispute with a third party, you can notify Mercury Cash Support at [email protected] so that we may consider what action to take, if any.

- U.S. currency is legal tender backed by the U.S. government.
- Digital and virtual currencies are not issued or backed by any governments, or related in any way to government-issued currency, and have fewer regulatory protections.
- The value of digital and virtual currencies is derived from supply and demand in the global marketplace which can rise or fall independently of any fiat (government) currency.
- Holding digital and virtual currencies carries the exchange rate and other types of risk.
Potential users of digital or virtual currencies should be forewarned of a possible financial loss at the time that such currencies are exchanged for Fiat currency due to an unfavorable exchange rate. A favorable exchange rate at the time of exchange can result in a tax liability. Please consult your tax advisor regarding any tax consequences associated with your holding or use of digital or virtual currencies.
