Risk Disclosure

Last updated: April 26, 2023

In the rapidly evolving world of decentralized finance, it is crucial for users to be aware of the potential risks associated with participating in DeFi protocols. The following Risk Disclosure section aims to provide a comprehensive overview of some of the key risks that may be encountered while using our platform. It is important to note that this list is not exhaustive, and additional risks may emerge as the DeFi landscape continues to develop. We encourage all users to carefully consider these risks, conduct thorough due diligence, and consult with professional advisors before participating in any DeFi activities. By using our platform, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks associated with the inherently experimental nature of decentralized finance.

Regulatory risks: DeFi platforms and related services may face evolving regulatory requirements, which could affect the functioning and value of Rumi Finance’s products and services. Changes in jurisdictions’ regulatory frameworks may lead to restrictions or even termination of the platform’s operations.

Smart contract vulnerabilities: Although Rumi Finance’s smart contracts undergo thorough security audits, there is always the potential for undiscovered vulnerabilities that could lead to the loss of users’ assets or disruptions in the platform’s operations.

Market and liquidity risks: The value of digital assets and the performance of DeFi strategies can be highly volatile and are subject to market fluctuations. Liquidity risks may arise from the inability to sell or liquidate an asset at a reasonable price when needed.

Counterparty risks: Rumi Finance relies on other protocols, services, and market participants in the DeFi ecosystem. The failure of these counterparties or any issues arising from their operations could adversely affect Rumi Finance and its users.

Systemic risks: The DeFi ecosystem could experience unforeseen shocks or crises that may lead to significant losses or disruptions in Rumi Finance’s operations. These systemic risks may arise from economic, political, social, or technological factors.

Technological risks: Rumi Finance’s platform is subject to risks related to the underlying blockchain technology, such as network congestion, software bugs, or cyberattacks, which could lead to disruptions, loss of funds, or other adverse effects.

Risks related to token economics: The value of RUMI tokens or any other associated tokens can be highly volatile and may be subject to significant fluctuations in value. There is no guarantee that token holders will realize any profits or be able to sell their tokens at a favorable price.

Risks of using third-party wallets: Users are responsible for the security of their own private keys and the wallets they use to interact with Rumi Finance. Loss of private keys or using compromised wallets may lead to the permanent loss of funds.

Tax implications: Users should consult with a tax professional to understand the tax implications of using Rumi Finance, as it may vary depending on the user’s jurisdiction and specific circumstances.

No warranty or representation: Rumi Finance and its associated services are provided “as is,” and the platform makes no warranties or representations regarding the platform’s functionality, performance, or any potential returns.

Oracle risks: Rumi Finance may rely on external data oracles to provide accurate and up-to-date information on asset prices and other market data. Any manipulation or failure of these oracles could result in incorrect data being used within the platform, potentially leading to adverse consequences for users.

Governance risks: Rumi Finance’s governance model relies on the participation of token holders in making decisions about the platform’s development and operations. There is a risk that decisions made by the governance process may not align with the interests of all users or may adversely affect the platform’s performance.

Third-party platform risks: Rumi Finance’s platform may interact with or rely on other third-party platforms, services, or protocols. Any issues, vulnerabilities, or failures in these third-party platforms could negatively impact Rumi Finance and its users.

Network risks: Rumi Finance operates on a blockchain network, and any issues or failures in the underlying network (such as hard forks, 51% attacks, or network congestion) could adversely affect the platform and its users.

Operational risks: Rumi Finance’s management and operations team is responsible for the development and maintenance of the platform. The loss of key personnel or any inability to attract and retain qualified personnel could negatively impact the platform’s operations and development.

Concentration risks: Rumi Finance may face concentration risks if a significant portion of the platform’s assets or liquidity is held or controlled by a small number of users or entities. This concentration could lead to increased price volatility, manipulation risks, or other adverse effects on the platform.

Changes in the competitive landscape: Rumi Finance operates in a rapidly evolving DeFi ecosystem, with new competitors and innovations emerging regularly. Changes in the competitive landscape could impact Rumi Finance’s market position and future growth prospects.

Force majeure events: Rumi Finance’s operations could be adversely affected by force majeure events such as natural disasters, terrorist attacks, or widespread pandemics, which could lead to disruptions in the platform’s operations or loss of user funds.
