Investment Risk
The investment in XSPECs can lead to the loss of money over a short or even over a long period of time. The investors in XSPECs should expect prices to have large range fluctuations in value.

Tax Obligations
The users of the Websites and the XSPEC software are solely responsible to determinate what, if any, taxes apply to their XSPEC transactions. The owners of, or contributors to, the Websites are NOT responsible for determining the taxes that may apply to XSPEC transactions. The Websites do not store, send, or receive XSPECs. This is because XSPECs exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained in the Spectre network.

The Spectreproject and its contributors cannot know, and do not pretend to be in any way aware of the full capabilities of any state power or malicious and motivated attacker and their ability to trace, track or otherwise monitor any electronic network. Therefore, The Spectreproject and its contributors cannot offer an absolute guarantee of privacy and anonymity and we suggest that anyone that would make such a promise would be dishonest and ignorant. Please see the privacy and anonymity section on this Website for further information on possible scenarios of use and how an attacker might deanonymise you and how you could protect yourself. We can not accept any liability for any failure, misuse or loss with regards to the integrated Tor Onion Router service that use a third party provider to hide your IP address online when using the XSPEC software.
