The rules applicable to limits for those transactions over a given time as well as applicable fees can be viewed in the Fees and Limits page. Whilst we will endeavour to keep you updated on any changes to such limits and fees, they may change from time to time without prior notice. Check them regularly to stay updated.

Lympid shall never charge any amount in excess of those stated in the Fees and Limits document, or otherwise than as stated therein, and in the event of any charge being made without your consent Lympid shall be liable to compensate you for the relevant amount.
5.8. Deposit Cryptocurrency
You can deposit a given cryptocurrency by doing a transfer to your Lympid wallet address for this cryptocurrency. The address provided depends on the selected cryptocurrency.
Sending funds to the wrong address, or sending any other asset other than not the selected cryptocurrency, will result in the permanent loss of those funds.
Lympid is not responsible for any loss of funds as a result of any error or negligence of a user; as a result of any fundamental error, bug or malware which has affected the relevant cryptocurrency blockchain or any related systems.
5.9. Deposit Euro
You can deposit euros in your account, by SEPA bank transfer to the correspondent bank details provided in your account in Lympid WebApp. When effecting a bank transfer, you will be asked to include a special reference code to help us identify the funds you have sent. Failure to include this reference within your bank transfer may result in delays in crediting your Lympid euro account.
Lympid only accepts direct deposits in the euro currency, so if you send a different fiat currency (i.e. a fiat currency other than the euro) deposits will not be accepted and therefore rejected, with the possibility of charges by your bank.
When your transfer is received, the equivalent value will be added to your account, without charging any fee or amount.
The bank account from which any deposit is made to your account must be held directly in your name. Unidentified deposits or deposits received from an account that appears not to belong to you will be rejected and the funds returned to the original account. All costs arising from such a return of funds will be borne by you.
5.10. Withdraw Cryptocurrency
In order to withdraw a given cryptocurrency, you need to provide a destination wallet address.
When a withdrawal request is received, the equivalent amount will be deducted from your account and transferred to the destination account provided.
A fee may be charged by the blockchain network, or by us or our Partner, which can vary depending on its congestion.
Sending funds to the wrong address, or sending any other asset other than the selected cryptocurrency, will result in the permanent loss of those funds. Lympid takes no responsibility for any error or negligence on your part in ensuring that you have correctly supplied the public address which is meant to receive your funds.
5.11. Withdraw Euro
In order to withdraw euros directly to your bank account, you need to provide us with the details of a destination bank account that must be opened in your own name and held with a Banking Institution established in the European Union or the European Economic Area. Note that the destination bank account must be in your name, otherwise the withdrawal request will be rejected.
When a withdrawal request is received, the equivalent amount will be deducted from your account and transferred to the destination account provided.
Lympid does not take any responsibility for bank details that are not correctly provided by you. Always ensure that your banking details are correctly included and such transfer is made to an account in your name.
Lympid allows you to exchange crypto-to-euro, euro-to-crypto and crypto-to-crypto. The exchange rate we use is calculated based on the market rate of our Partners, both Striga and 1INCH. Although we will make the best efforts to obtain and provide you with the best rate available in the open market, Lympid is not bound to supply you with an at-par exchange rate value when effecting an exchange of any type of currency.
Exchanges and swaps can be performed directly on the blockchain through a liquidity aggregator, therefore each operation might be susceptible to price deviations depending on the liquidity depth of a certain token or pair. For convenience and as a risk preventive measure we have pre-determined the maximum slippage percentage.
No Returns or Refunds. All exchanges and swaps of crypto assets are final. We do not accept any returns or provide refunds for your purchase of crypto assets, and we reserve the right to discontinue the exchange and swap of any determined crypto asset without notice.
Transacting, trading and exchanging cryptocurrencies is a high-risk speculative activity in which you may lose all your money or a substantial portion of it. Do not trade with money you cannot afford to lose. We are not responsible if you lose any money as a result of any loss of market value of any currency (fiat or crypto) that is supported on our platform.

5.15. Duration of Cryptocurrency transaction
All cryptocurrency transactions to and from Lympid remain subject to the speed of the consensus mechanisms that confirm transactions as well as the traffic on the relevant blockchain network.
5.16. Legal Title to Cryptocurrencies

7. Safety of Cryptocurrency Protocols
We do not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of any cryptocurrencies supported on the Lympid platform. In most cases, the underlying protocols of cryptocurrencies are ‘open source’ and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them.
Lympid assumes no responsibility for the operation of the underlying protocols and we are not able to guarantee their functionality, security, or availability presently or in the future. You acknowledge and accept the risk that underlying software protocols relating to any cryptocurrencies you store in your account through the Lympid platform may change.
In particular, the underlying protocols are likely to be subject to sudden changes in operating rules ("forks"), and such forks may materially affect the value, function, and/or the name of the cryptocurrencies you store in your account through the Lympid platform. Where possible, we may provide you with notices or alerts on forks and with instruction from us to consider on how to deal with upcoming forks.
However, it is your responsibility to make yourself aware of, and consider how to deal with, upcoming forks or changes to the underlying protocols. In the event of a fork, there is a risk that we may need to temporarily suspend operations in relation to that fork without providing advance notice to you. We may, in our reasonable discretion, decline to support either or both branches of a fork. You acknowledge the risks presented by forks and you accept that we have no responsibility to assist you to move or sell an unsupported branch of a forked protocol.
8. Risk Disclosure
Trading risks: You acknowledge and agree that you shall access and use the Services at your own risk. The risk of loss in trading crypto asset pairs and crypto asset and legal tender pairs (fiat currencies and/to crypto assets) can be substantial. You should, therefore, carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources. You should be aware of the following points:
You may sustain a total loss of the funds. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, when the market reaches a daily price fluctuation limit or there is insufficient liquidity in the market. Also, transactions in crypto assets may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable.
Internet transmission risks: You acknowledge that there are risks associated with utilising an Internet-based distributed ledger trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connections. You acknowledge that Lympid shall not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when trading via the Services, however caused.
Legal risks: Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at any level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of crypto assets.
Loss of value: The value of your cryptocurrencies may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange cryptocurrencies for fiat or other cryptocurrencies. If such willingness is abolished for any reason, this may result in the potential for a permanent and total loss of value of a particular cryptocurrency.
This statement is not to be taken as a full disclosure of trading risks
