As part of the Website, Union provides access to various decentralized finance applications (“Applications”) on the Ethereum blockchain, that allow You to interact with Ethereum Assets (“Virtual Assets”) to transact using smart contracts (“Smart Contracts”).
The peer-to-peer Collateral Optimization Product Application (“C-OP”) allows sellers of protection and buyers of protection to transact using Smart Contracts.
Using the Union Protocol may require that You pay a fee, such as gas on the Ethereum network to perform a transaction. You acknowledge and agree that Union has no control over any transactions, the method of payment of any transactions, or any actual payments of transactions. Always make sure You have a sufficient balance in your wallet address (“Virtual Asset Wallet”) to complete any transaction on the Union protocol before initiating such transaction. An insufficient balance will cause your transaction to fail.
You acknowledge and agree that Union has no control over any transaction(s) over the Union protocol, the method of payment of any transactions or any actual payments of transactions.
