DXone operates a live market for the buying, selling, and trading of cryptocurrencies. These actions may be executed immediately and be impossible to reverse. Users should be warned that actions related to the the live trading of these cryptocurrencies may be impossible to change once executed.
Markets rely on counterparties for trades. In digital tokens, there can be at times a lack of counterparties to execute the trade, and the market becomes “illiquid.” This results in even greater than usual volatility and prices can drop quickly. It is impossible to know if any particular trade will be executed at a price desired by the user.
All trades dependent on counterparties contain the risk that the counterparty will be unable or unwilling to perform their obligations. As a result, either the user, other market participants or both may suffer from financial losses either as a result of the trade in question or as a result of a broader instability and volatility in the price of the digital token.
