Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Public Mint Inc., a state of Delaware corporation (“Public Mint”) which has developed a platform for tokenising fiat (the “PM Platform”). The Company, in cooperation with Public Mint, is developing a cryptographic token (the “MINT Token”) to support the governance of the EARN Program and its viability, that the Company will run on PM Platform (collectively, the “Public Mint Project”).

You should refer to the MINT Global EARN Litepaper (the “MINT Litepaper”) for further information about the MINT Token, the PM Platform, the Public Mint Project and related matters.


This document does not constitute a solicitation for any investment. By participating in the MINT Token Sale, you expressly acknowledge and represent that you have carefully read these Terms and fully understand the risks, costs, and benefits of purchasing MINT Tokens and agree to be bound by these Terms. You further confirm that you have read, fully understand and agree with the Privacy Policy, MINT Litepaper and all other documents and disclosures regarding MINT Tokens (“Company Documents”) and expressly accept all terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations and warranties described in the Company Documents and agree to be bound by them.


You declare that you are not a citizen, permanent resident, agent or representative for any entity of (a) the United States of America or (b) any jurisdiction where (i) the purchase, possession, transfer, use or other transaction involving any amount of MINT Tokens or (ii) the accessing of, referencing to, engaging in, or otherwise using this Website, is illegal or restricted under applicable law.You declare that your funds in no way came from illegal or unethical sources, that you are not using any proceeds of criminal or illegal activity, and that no transaction involving MINT Tokens are being used to facilitate any criminal or illegal activity.You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold the Company and any of its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, successors, advisors, and permitted assignees (each, a “Company Indemnitee” or “Company Party”) harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, suits, actions, demands, proceedings, expenses, fines, penalties, liabilities or other negative adverse effects (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred and/or those necessary to successfully establish the right to indemnification) (each, a “Loss”) filed or incurred by any third party against Company or the Company Indemnitees arising out of a breach of any warranty, representation, or obligation hereunder or under the Company Documents. If any Loss occurs as a result of your participating in the Initial MINT Token Sale, you shall reimburse Company for the cost of all such Losses within five calendar days of written demand by Company.


The purchase of MINT Token involves various significant risks and therefore careful consideration of the risks described herein is required. It may be advisable to consult a lawyer, an accountant, or a tax professional. If any of the following risks are unacceptable to you, you must not purchase any MINT Token. By purchasing the MINT Token, you agree not to hold any of the Company Parties liable for any losses or any damages arising from, or in any way connected, to the Initial MINT Token Sale, including losses associated with the risks set forth below.


The ownership of a MINT Token carries no ownership rights (expressly or implied) to Company, the PM Platform as well as any other Company products. Owners of MINT Tokens do not have any contractual rights against the Company, the PM Platform and therefore have no claims against the Company Parties. The MINT Token is used to support the governance of the EARN Program and its viability that the Company will run on PM Platform and is not considered a security. All purchases of MINT Token are non-refundable. By purchasing a MINT Token, the Purchaser of MINT Token acknowledges that neither Company nor any of the Company Parties are required to provide a refund for any reason. 


Purchases of a MINT Token must only be undertaken by individuals, entities, or companies with significant experience and understanding of cryptographic token and their intricacies, like bitcoin, and blockchain based software systems.Purchasers must have functional understanding of storage and transmission mechanisms associated with other cryptographic tokens. While the Company Team will be available to assist Purchasers of a MINT Token during and after the MINT Token Sale, Company will not be responsible for lost  ethers (ETH), other cryptocurrencies lost or lost MINT Tokens resulting from actions taken by, or omitted by Purchasers. If you do not have such expert knowledge or experience with regards to cryptographic tokens, then you should not purchase MINT Tokens or participate in the Initial MINT Token Sale.Note: Purchasers of MINT Tokens should take particular care regarding their wallet password and keep it stored at a safe place in order to ensure that they will be able to access their MINT Tokens when issued following the Initial MINT Token Sale.


By participating in the Initial MINT Token Sale and purchasing MINT Tokens, you expressly acknowledge that you understand that MINT Tokens may experience volatility in pricing. Further, you represent and warrant that you will not seek to hold any of the Company Parties liable for any losses or damages arising from, or are in any way connected to the sale of MINT Tokens to you in the Initial MINT Token Sale.All Company Parties expressly decline any liability for any loss or damages arising from diminished value of MINT Token. Company Parties expressly refrain from providing any forecast or guidance regarding value of MINT Token over time. Potential purchasers should take into account this uncertainty and inherent volatility of cryptographic tokens in considering the risks in purchasing MINT Tokens. You acknowledge your understanding that the purpose in purchasing and holding MINT Tokens is not to realize financial gain in any exchange of the MINT Tokens but rather to perform governance of the EARN program to support the PM Project.


The Purchaser understands that while the Company Parties team will ensure all reasonable efforts to complete the PM Project are undertaken, it is possible that the full vision for Company is never achieved. It is uncertain that this project will be commercialised or become profitable. If the Company Project fails to get to market or gain market acceptance, it is very likely that the MINT Token will lose all value.

This Agreement constitutes valid and binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or other laws of general application relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and general principles of equity.4.4 The Purchaser understands that the MINT Tokens involve risks, all of which the Purchaser fully and completely assumes, including, but not limited to, the risk that (i) the technology associated with the Network will not function as intended; (ii) the Network Launch will not be completed; (iii) the MINT Token Project will fail to attract sufficient interest from key stakeholders; and (iv) the Company and/or the MINT Token Project may be subject to investigation and punitive actions from Governmental Authorities. The Purchaser understands and expressly accepts that the Tokens will be created and delivered to the Purchaser at the sole risk of the Purchaser on an “AS IS” and “UNDER DEVELOPMENT” basis. The Purchaser understands and expressly accepts that the Purchaser has not relied on any representations or warranties made by the Company outside of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, conversations of any kind, whether through oral or electronic communication. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, THE PURCHASER ASSUMES ALL RISK AND LIABILITY FOR THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY THE USE OF ANY TOKENS AND REGARDLESS OF ANY ORAL OR WRITTEN STATEMENTS MADE BY THE COMPANY, BY WAY OF TECHNICAL ADVICE OR OTHERWISE, RELATED TO THE USE OF THE TOKENS.4.5 The Purchaser understands that Purchaser bears sole responsibility for any taxes as a result of the matters and transactions the subject of this Agreement, and any future acquisition, ownership, use, sale or other disposition of MINT Tokens held by the Purchaser. To the extent permitted by law, the Purchaser agrees to indemnify, defend and hold the Company or any of its affiliates, employees or agents (including developers, auditors, contractors or founders) harmless for any claim, liability, assessment or penalty with respect to any taxes (other than any net income taxes of the Company that result from the issuance of Tokens to the Purchaser pursuant to Section 2.1 of this Agreement) associated with or arising from the Purchaser’s purchase of MINT Tokens hereunder, or the use or ownership of Tokens.4.6 Funds; Payments.(a) Funds: The funds, including any fiat, virtual currency or cryptocurrency, Purchaser uses to purchase MINT Tokens are not derived from or related to any unlawful activities, including but not limited to money laundering or terrorist financing, and Purchaser will not use the MINT Tokens to finance, engage in, or otherwise support any unlawful activities.(b) Payments: All payments by Purchaser under this Agreement will be made only in Purchaser’s name, from a digital wallet or bank account not located in a country or territory that has been designated as a “non-cooperative country or territory” by the Financial Action Task Force, and is not a “foreign shell bank” within the meaning of the U.S.  Bank Secrecy Act (31 U.S.C.  § 5311 et seq.), as amended, and the regulations promulgated thereunder by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, as such regulations may be amended from time to time.4.7 Miscellaneous Regulatory Compliance:(a) Anti-Money Laundering; Counter-Terrorism Financing: To the extent required by applicable law, Purchaser complies with all anti-money laundering and counterterrorism financing requirements.(b) Sanctions Compliance: Neither Purchaser, nor any person having a direct or indirect beneficial interest in Purchaser or MINT Tokens being acquired by Purchaser, or any person for whom Purchaser is acting as agent or nominee in connection with MINT Tokens, is the subject of sanctions administered or enforced by any country or government (collectively, “Sanctions”) or is organized or resident in a country or territory that is the subject of country-wide or territory-wide Sanctions.


Purchaser has carefully reviewed, acknowledges, understands and assumes the following risks which could render the MINT Tokens worthless or of little value:5.1. Rights, Functionality and Features: Purchase of the MINT Tokens does not guarantee that the MINT Token Project will be launched or that the MINT Token’s development will be finished or that the MINT Token will be adopted and implemented.  5.2.  Ability to Transact or Resell: Purchaser may be unable to sell or otherwise transact in MINT Tokens at any time, or for the price Purchaser paid. Purchaser acknowledges, understands and agrees that: (a) MINT Tokens may have no value; (b) there is no guarantee or representation of liquidity for the MINT Tokens; and (c) the Parties are not and shall not be responsible for or liable for the market value of MINT Tokens, the transferability and/or liquidity of MINT Tokens and/or the availability of any market for MINT Tokens through third parties or otherwise.5.3.  Token Security:  Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Network or the MINT Tokens in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Furthermore, because the Ethereum platform rests on open source software and MINT Tokens are based on open source software, there is the risk that Ethereum smart contracts may contain intentional or unintentional bugs or weaknesses which may negatively affect the MINT Tokens or result in the loss of Purchaser’s MINT Tokens, the loss of Purchaser’s ability to access or control Purchaser’s MINT Tokens or the loss of ETH in Purchaser’s account.  In the event of such a software bug or weakness, there may be no remedy and holders of MINT Tokens are not guaranteed any remedy, refund or compensation.5.4.  Access to Private Keys: MINT Tokens purchased by Purchaser may be held by Purchaser in Purchaser’s digital wallet or vault, which requires a private key, or a combination of private keys, for access.  Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with Purchaser’s digital wallet or vault storing MINT Tokens will result in loss of such MINT Tokens, access to Purchaser’s MINT Token balance and/or any initial balances in blockchains created by third parties.  Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet or vault service Purchaser uses, may be able to misappropriate Purchaser’s MINT Tokens.  Company is not responsible for any such losses.5.5.  New Technology: The MINT Token and all of the matters set forth in the Lite Paper are new and untested.  The MINT Token Project might not be capable of completion, implementation or adoption. Even if the MINT Token Project  is completed, implemented and adopted, it might not function as intended, and the MINT Tokens may not have functionality that is desirable or valuable.  Also, technology is changing rapidly, so the MINT Tokens and/or their utility may become outdated.5.6.  Reliance on Third-Parties: Even if completed, the MINT Token Project will rely, in whole or partly, on third parties to adopt and implement it and to continue to develop, supply, and otherwise support it.  There is no assurance or guarantee that those third parties will complete their work, carry out their obligations, or otherwise meet anyone’s needs, all of which might have a material adverse effect on the MINT Tokens.5.7.  Risk of Uninsured Loss: Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, Tokens are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or private insurance arranged by Company, to offer recourse to you. 5.8.  Taxes: The tax characterization of Tokens is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing Tokens, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements. 5.9.  Exchange Risk: The Company team intends to use the proceeds from selling Tokens to fund the maintenance and development of the MINT Token Project, as described further in the Lite Paper. The proceeds of the Token sale may be received in different forms of value, both fiat and cryptographic. If these forms of value fluctuate unfavorably during or after the sale period, the Company may not be able to fund development, or may not be able to develop or maintain the Network in the manner that it intended.5.10. Project Completion: The development of the MINT Token Project may be abandoned for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of interest from the public, lack of funding, lack of commercial success or prospects, or departure of key personnel.5.11. Lack of Interest: Even if the MINT Token Project is finished and the MINT Token adopted, the ongoing success of the MINT Token Project relies on the interest and participation of third parties like developers.  There can be no assurance or guarantee that there will be sufficient interest or participation in the MINT Token Project.5.12.  Uncertain Regulatory Framework: The regulatory status of cryptographic tokens, digital assets and blockchain technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions.  It is difficult to predict how or whether governmental authorities will regulate such technologies.  It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any governmental authority may make changes to existing laws, regulations and/or rules that will affect cryptographic tokens, digital assets, blockchain technology and its applications.  Such changes could negatively impact MINT Tokens in various ways, including, for example, through a determination that MINT Tokens are regulated financial instruments that require certain registrations or controls.  Company may cease the distribution of MINT Tokens, the ongoing development of the MINT Token Project  or cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that governmental actions make it unlawful or commercially undesirable to continue to do so.5.13.  Risk of Government Action: As noted above, the industry in which Company operates is new, and may be subject to heightened oversight and scrutiny, including investigations or enforcement actions.  There can be no assurance that governmental authorities will not examine the operations of Company and/or pursue enforcement actions against Company.  Such governmental activities may or may not be the result of targeting Company in particular.  All of this may subject Company to judgments, settlements, fines or penalties, or cause Company to restructure its operations and activities or to cease offering certain products or services, all of which could harm Company’s reputation or lead to higher operational costs, which may in turn have a material adverse effect on the MINT Tokens and/or the development of the MINT Token Project.5.14. Unanticipated Risks. Cryptographic tokens such as the MINT Tokens are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Article 5, there are other risks associated with your purchase, holding and use of MINT Tokens, including those that the Company cannot anticipate. These unanticipated risks may have a material adverse impact on the utility of the MINT Tokens and the ongoing viability of the MINT Token Project.


6.1. Limitation of Liability: Nothing in this Agreement shall exclude or limit our liability for fraud, willful misconduct or any other liability which cannot be lawfully excluded or limited. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL COMPANY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, ECONOMIC OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR LOSS OF PROFIT EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. 6.2. Damages: The aggregate liability of the Company, whether in contract, warrant, tort or other theory, for damages to Purchaser under this Agreement shall not exceed the amount received by Company from Purchaser.6.3.  Force Majeure: Purchaser understands and agrees that Company shall not be liable and disclaims all liability to Purchaser in connection with any force majeure event, including acts of God, labour disputes or other industrial disturbances, electrical, telecommunications, hardware, software or other utility failures, software or smart contract bugs or weaknesses, earthquakes, storms, or other nature-related events, blockages, embargoes, riots, acts or orders of government, acts of terrorism or war, technological change, changes in interest rates or other monetary conditions, and, for the avoidance of doubt, changes to any blockchain-related protocol.6.4. Indemnification:To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Purchaser will indemnify, defend and hold harmless and reimburse the Company from and against any and all actions, proceedings, claims, damages, demands and actions (including without limitation fees and expenses of counsel), incurred by Company arising from or relating to:(i) Purchaser’s purchase of MINT Tokens;(ii) Purchaser’s breach of or violation of this Agreement; (iii) any inaccuracy in any representation or warranty of Purchaser;(iv) Purchaser’s violation of any rights of any other person or entity; and/or (v) any act or omission of Purchaser that is negligent, unlawful or constitutes willful misconduct.Company reserves the right to exercise sole control over the defense, at Purchaser’s expense, of any claim subject to indemnification under this Section 6.4.

8.1.  Governing Law and Venue: This Agreement shall be governed in all respects, including as to validity, interpretation and effect, by the laws of the state of New York without giving effect to its principles or rules of conflict of laws, to the extent such principles or rules are not mandatorily applicable by statute and would permit or require the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.8.2.  Assignment: Purchaser may not assign its rights and obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of Company.  Any assignment or transfer in violation of this Section 8.2 will be void.  Company may assign this Agreement to an affiliate.  Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement, and the rights and obligations of the Parties hereunder, will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of their respective successors, assigns, heirs, executors, administrators and legal representatives.8.3 Entire Agreement.
