Staking Additional Terms

These Additional Terms supplement the terms and conditions of your access and use of the proprietary crypto trading platform (the “Platform”) operated by Bitbuy Technologies Inc. (“Bitbuy”) published at Bitbuy’s website at: https://bitbuy.ca/en/terms/ (the “Terms”).

ETHER

1. SERVICE FEES

Rewards earned in connection with staking ether (“ETH”) are subject to a Bitbuy Service Fees of 30.00%.

2. STAKING ETH

In connection with Staking Services provided to you by Bitbuy pursuant to the Terms and the Staking Addendum, you acknowledge and agree that:

(i) On September 15, 2022, the Ethereum Network transitioned from a “proof-of-work” (“PoW”) protocol to a “proof-of-stake” (“PoS”) protocol (the “Merge”) whereby the original execution layer of the Ethereum Mainnet (the “Mainnet”) was merged with Ethereum’s new PoS consensus layer, the Beacon Chain.

(ii) The Merge upgrade did not include certain anticipated features (such as the ability to withdraw stakedETH). The “Shanghai upgrade” is planned to follow the Merge. After the completion of the Shanghai upgrade, ETH holders will be able to withdraw stakedETH and rewards from the network. The Shanghai upgrade is anticipated to roll-out six to 12 months following the Merge. However, this may change, and unforeseen circumstances could delay the Shanghai upgrade. Moreover, it is possible that issues may arise during the Shanghai upgrade that could result in a partial or complete loss of staked ETH. The mechanics of how total deposits and accrued rewards will be withdrawn from a validator are still under development.

(iii) Once staking is initiated, a validator enters a queue to become “activated” which takes approximately 7.5 hours. Once initiated, the network acknowledges the ETH to be deposited to the staking smart contract. Once completed, the ETH deposit is officially accessible to the Beacon Chain and remains in a “pending state” until activated. Since only four validators are activated per epoch, activation may take days or even weeks to complete. Once activated, the validator begins accruing rewards for securing the network. You will not earn rewards until the Delegated Crypto Assets are activated and Bitbuy actually receives rewards on your behalf. When rewards are received by Bitbuy, Bitbuy will periodically provide statements to users indicating the amount of the rewards that the user is entitled to as well as the total rewards that were earned and any fees payable.

(iv) Withdrawing staked ETH or rewards from a validator is not supported until the completion of the Shanghai upgrade. Once the Shanghai upgrade is completed, it will be possible to withdraw all or some of one’s stake (“unbonding”). Similar to the activation of a validator, a queue will be formed for users attempting to unbond their stake and withdraw their assets. This queue is estimated to consist of 6 validators per epoch.

(v) Bitbuy will not make payments of any Missed Reward that may occur in connection with staking ETH.

(vi) With respect to any rewards earned on your staked ETH: (i) Bitbuy’s custodian, BitGo, will be entitled to afee and may pay a portion of that fee to any third-party service provider it selects to act as validator; (ii) any remaining portion of the rewards (the “Net Rewards”) will be delivered to one of Bitbuy’s custodial wallets with BitGo;(iii) Bitbuy will be entitled to a fee of 30% in respect of the Net Rewards(the “Bitbuy Service Fee”); and (iv) after the Bitbuy Service Fee has been paid, your account will be credited with any remaining portion of the rewards, and, subject to any unbonding, lock-up or cooling-down period, you will be able to hold, sell or withdraw your rewards.

(vii) These Additional Staking Terms may be amended by Bitbuy at any time in its sole discretion.

SOL

1. SERVICE FEES

Rewards earned in connection with staking SOL, the native token of the Solana Network, are subject to a Bitbuy Service Fee of 30.00%.

2. STAKING SOL

In connection with Staking Services provided to you by Bitbuy pursuant to the Terms and the Staking Addendum, you acknowledge and agree that:

(i) When you delegate or un-delegate SOL, the delegated SOL does not change state immediately. Newly delegated tokens are considered “activating”or “warming up” and are not eligible to earn rewards until they are fully activated. Newly un-delegated tokens are considered “deactivating” or “cooling down” and are not able to be withdrawn until deactivated. The Solana Network only allows tokens to finish changing state at the beginning of a new epoch (as described below). Bitbuy may, in its sole discretion, allow users to withdraw up to an equivalent amount of SOL as such user then holds in the cooling down period, prior to such SOL having fully transitioned states.

(ii) The Solana Network uses a “leader schedule” to determine which validator is responsible for appending transactions to the Solana ledger at any given time. Each epoch, which is the period of time during which a leader schedule is valid on the Solana protocol, lasts roughly two days.

(iii) The Solana Network computes and distributes staking rewards once per epoch. If a reward is accrued in a given epoch, it will be issued in the first block of the following epoch. When rewards are received by Bitbuy, Bitbuy will provide statements to users indicating the amount of the rewards that the user is entitled to as well as the total rewards that were earned and any fees payable. For each epoch, your share of SOL rewards is proportionate to the amount of SOL that you had staked when the epoch began.

(iv) With respect to any rewards earned on your staked SOL: (i) Bitbuy’s custodian, BitGo, will be entitled to afee and may pay a portion of that fee to any third-party service provider it selects to act as validator; (ii) any remaining portion of the rewards (the “NetRewards”) will be delivered to one of Bitbuy’s custodial wallets withBitGo; (iii) Bitbuy will be entitled to a fee of 30% in respect of the NetRewards (the “Bitbuy Service Fee”); and (iv) after the Bitbuy ServiceFee has been paid, your account will be credited with any remaining portion of the rewards, and, subject to any unbonding, lock-up or cooling-down period, you will be able to hold, sell or withdraw your rewards.

(v) These Additional Staking Terms may be amended by Bitbuy at any time in its sole discretion.
