4.1. Pres-Stake and Stake services
Pre-Stake is a service and opportunity offered to users in Phase 1 of the Ice project and is defined as a commitment by the user to stake an amount of Ice coins from the date the Ice project moves into Phase 2, the stage of the live launch of the Mainnet and the completion of KYC procedures by the user. In return for this commitment, the user is rewarded in two ways:
- In Phase 1 the user will receive a bonus of up to 250% applied to the volume of Ice coins staked, depending on the period of years (1 year – 5 years) they have chosen for the stake.
- In Phase 2 the user will receive a percentage reward for each year for which they have committed to staking.
All these commitments are automatically honoured, they are written into the system software and the code can be checked by anyone interested, it is publicly available on GitHub in a transparent way.
As the project is a decentralised project where DAO (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation) principles will operate in Phase 2, Ice Labs Limited disclaims responsibility for determining the amount of rewards for staking. These rewards are influenced by a number of parameters whose value will be determined through decentralised governance mechanisms, i.e. by direct vote of those who have made the commitment to stake.
5. Limitations on use of the Service
- You agree not to offer any sale of Ice units or any derivatives of such units by you for other currencies prior to the launch of the Ice Network Mainnet.
- You agree that you and you alone are the exclusive owner of this account and the Ice units associated with your account and that you will not transfer your account to any other person, group or organization.
- You acknowledge and agree to the condition that you register on the network with only one account and one device, and during Phase 1, you must follow the KYC Step #1 procedure, the face recognition authentication procedure.
In the last stage of KYC, users will have the opportunity to be verified as human beings and demonstrate their knowledge of the project through a 21-question Test. The test is considered passed if at least 18 correct answers are given. Users have three chances to pass the quiz within a two-week period. If they fail to do so or take no action within two weeks, their account will enter into permanent slashing, making the account irrecoverable. Users who have opened multiple accounts on multiple devices, run bots, engaged in the operation of automated bots, disseminated content revealing answers to the quiz, or distributed materials on any platform that are deemed defamatory or detrimental to the reputation and interests of the Ice project, will face immediate account termination without prior notice.
- You agree not to engage in any illicit and/or illegal transactions using Ice.
- You agree not to engage in, or attempt to engage in activity that seeks to defraud us or any other person or entity, including, but not limited to, providing any false, inaccurate, or misleading information in order to unlawfully obtain the property of another.
- You agree not to engage in activity that transmits, exchanges, or is otherwise supported by the direct or indirect proceeds of criminal, terrorist or fraudulent activity.
Violation of any of these terms may result in the invalidation of your account and forfeiture of your entire balance. You agree that you assume full responsibility in the event of invalidation of your account and cancellation of your balance. Ice Labs Limited and the Ice Network and its developers bear no liability if your account is invalidated, your balance is cancelled or if transferred Ice units are cancelled.
