Scope of the Agreement

The Agreement will cover the purchase, disposal and conversion of the Pre-Token.

Conditions for the sale of the pre-Token

The purchase of Pre-tokens should be performed only by qualified investors. The investors may be natural or legal persons.

Qualified investor

The investors will take upon themselves to make the due diligence if they qualify as professional investors in accordance with their national/sub-national legislation. The Issuer may refuse an investment and return the purchasing sum, should upon request the investor fails to proof he/she has the corresponding legal capacity. In those circumstances the transaction costs and handling fees will be deducted from the sum to be return.

Identification of Users

Should the need arise for an investment to be returned the return will be done either via the same medium (ether/bank transfer) or through a medium of the choice of the investor; however the investor will need to proof beyond reasonable doubt that the investment was done. The Issuer may issue special rules governing that identification as separate Schedule to these Terms and Conditions.

Price of tokens and conversion rate

The Pre-token will have set price of $0.01, which will be denominated in ethers for the day of the purchase. The issuer may increase or decrease the reference period. Should the user overpays more than 20% of the purchase price due to an increase in the reference period that user may apply for refund by the Issuer.

Pre-Token Purchase

Qualified investors may purchase tokens with ether or with fiat. Investors take the exchange rate risk to the tune described in the previous paragraph. Investors are also liable for all of the transaction fees.

Right to refuse or cancel purchase

The Issuer/CCU may refuse or cancel a purchase in any case. In those circumstances the medium of exchange (ether or fiat) is returned to the Investor. If the reason for the cancelation was that the Investor is not qualified, or is person bared by the law in participating in financial transaction, all transfer costs and handling fees are to be paid by the Investor.

Right to re-sell the Pre-Token

Investors have the right to re-sell the Pre-Token as long as they are not citizens and residents of, have their vital interest or incorporation in the US, its dependencies and territories.

Conversion from Pre-Tokens to Tokens

The Conversion from Pre-Token to Deriveum Tokens will happen in a rate of 1:1 (one to one). The Issuer and/or the CCU will take appropriate measures for the conversion to be easy and automatic. The users will bear all the costs of transfers or conversion in the Ethereum network.

Duration of the Agreement

This Agreement and the rights provided to the users under it will expire in 6 months since the purchase of the pre-token. The issuer may extend the period of the Agreement, should specific and/or technical issues appear in the development of the Deriveum token. The Issuer and/or the CCU will inform the users in appropriate manner for the extension of their rights.

Changes of the Agreement

Termination of the Agreement

This Agreement will be terminated with the conversion from Pre-Tokens to Tokens or by its expiry.

Part IV: Token

Scope of the Agreement

This Part of the Agreement concerns the purchase, use, sell and conversion of Deriveum.

Legal nature of the token

The users acknowledge that the token is not backed by any tangible or intangible property; the value of the token is derived from its usefulness for a specific kind of transactions. In its legal nature the Token is a commodity.

Purchase of the Tokens

The users may purchase Tokens via an exchange or via the Price stability Mechanism using ether. The Issuer together with the CCU may offer additional revenues for purchase from the Price stability Mechanism using fiat currencies.

Sale of the Tokens

The users may sell or transfer to other users their unpledged tokens. Tokens that are pledged may be sold and/or transferred only after the contract on them has expired or was duly terminated.

Price Stability Mechanism

80% of the Tokens will be loaded in the Price Stability Mechanism, from which users will be able to purchase the tokens at a designated support price. 50% of the proceeds from the initial sale of the token will revert back to the Price Stability Mechanism in the form of ethers. Should the Issuer and/or the CCU receive fiat money for the purchase form the Price Stability Mechanism they will arrange for the corresponding ether amount to be provided to the Mechanism within 4 weeks.


Users will identify themselves with valid, government issued e-signature (digital signature) in all transactions they may undertake with Deriveum. The CCU has the right and obligation to check the validity of the above mentioned e-signature each and every time a transaction is undertaken. The CCU may not validate the e-signature if it is not valid (including technical problems experienced by the signature’s authority), or it is obliged by the law, court order or extreme emergency brought to the attention of the CCU by authorized public body.

Use of the Tokens

Users will make written and/or digital contract or take advantage of default contracting conditions between themselves. The contracts between users will cover at least the amount of tokens, the duration of the contract, the Verifier and the Resolver.

Release of the Detailed Rules on the Use of the Token

The Issuer in consultations with the CCU will release detailed rules on the use of the Token. The Detailed rules will become part of this Agreement. The Rules may not reduce or neglect rights users have under these Terms and Conditions.


Verifier is any natural or legal person, or automated/algorithmic program that will make a determination if and when a contract between users of the Deriveum Token has been activated. Each contract will have Verifier, appointed by the agreement of all parties in the contract.


Resolver is any natural or legal person, or automated/algorithmic program that the users will turn to resolve disputes on a particular contract entered by the users. Each contract will have a Resolver, appointed by the agreement of all parties in the contract. The Resolver may not alter the terms of the contract, but may only terminate the contract. Termination of the contract will release the pledged Deriveum Tokens. Unless otherwise decided by the parties the seat of the Resolver will be the jurisdiction of arbitration and contract law.


Users may choose to attach off-grid property rights to individualized tokens and pledge them as collateral in a contract. The Issuer in consultations with the CCU will release detailed rules on the gold-plating before the Token is listed on an exchange.

Blocking of amounts

The Users agree and assert their understanding that a portion of their Deriveum Tokens will be blocked for the duration of a contract to which they are the counterparty. The amount and time period are negotiated between the users. Users may not sell, pledge, transfer or otherwise make use of the blocked tokens until the abovementioned contract is in force.


The Deriveum will be succeeded and converted to Deriveum 2.0 in five years’ time. The users have the right to receive at least the monetary equivalent of their tokens in new tokens on the day of the conversion. The Issuer will release detailed rules on the conversion in due course. The Issuer may not reduce the rights of the users under this Agreement. Further the Issuer may not erode the economic value of the tokens with the conversion.

Changes to the Agreement

The Issuer may change this Agreement unilaterally. The changes will not affect the rights of the users.

No waver for users

The failure of the Issuer to require or enforce strict performance by the User/Investor of any provision of these Terms or the Company’s failure to exercise any right under these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the Issuer’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. The express waiver by the Issuer of any provision, condition, or requirement of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
