The information, products, data, services, tools and documents contained or described on this site (the “Content”) are for information purposes only and constitute neither an advertisement or recommendation nor an offer or solicitation to buy or sell virtual currencies, to affect any transaction or to enter into any legal relations.

The products mentioned on this site are not suitable for all users. Prior to making investment decisions users should conduct a thorough investigation and obtain all necessary professional advice for all issues, including your eligibility to make such investment in terms of the applicable law.

Nothing on this site constitutes investment, legal, accounting or tax advice, or a representation that any investment or strategy is suitable or appropriate for individual circumstances, or otherwise constitutes a personal recommendation for any specific investor. SCX recommends that users independently assess, with a professional advisor, the specific financial risks as well as legal, regulatory, credit, tax and accounting consequences.


The Service operated by SCX allows registered users, to buy and sell virtual currencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, as well as other virtual currencies that the user wishes to acquire).

The market price of virtual currency changes in time, so that your virtual currency might have a much higher or lower value in the future. Good past performance is no guarantee of good future performance. The market of virtual currency is very volatile and prone to a quick change of prices. In fact, virtual currency can become even completely void of value. Virtual currencies are not supported by any entity. Neither SCX, nor any other entity or state is bound to buy back your virtual currencies in the future.

Please make sure you fully understand the implied risks and, therefore only undertake investments with which you are or have made yourself familiar and which are suitable in the light of your circumstances and financial resources.
