Specification of Services - The Freeos AirClaim dApp and Freeos Governance dApp 

 

FreeDAO is creating decentralized tools for collaboration and freedom. Our vision is to create a new, equitable financial system. Our mission is to develop a Self-Governed Co-operative Income (“Freeos”) by which Participants vote and in return are allowed to claim points (“Points”).  The Participants are permitted to convert their Points into FREEOS tokens (“FREEOS”) or FREEBY tokens (“FREEBY”) at their discretion.

 

For clarity, Freeos is the software that FreeDAO has deployed on the blockchain. We intend to achieve voting, issuance, distribution and governance of Freeos through smart contracts coded and deployed to the Internet Computer, a decentralized platform operating on top of the Proton Blockchain. The Internet Computer or the Proton Blockchain are independent blockchain projects with which FreeDAO is not affiliated. 

 

FreeDAO has created the Freeos AirClaim dApp and the Freeos Governance dApp; they are designed to enable participants to claim Points. The AirClaim dApp enables Participants to convert Points to FREEOS. The use of the AirClaim dApp and Freeos Governance dApp is free of charge. No funds or other form of payment is required in exchange for claiming Points.  Participants may be required to stake xUSDC and/or hold Points and/or FREEOS.  The dApp is coded to notify you of such requirements prior to your transaction.

 

When converting Points to FREEBY and FREEOS, you are solely responsible for executing the transaction properly, including the sufficient payment of mint fees. Insufficient information and/or insufficient mint fees may cause a delay, even loss, in the conversion process. We make no representation that FREEOS or FREEBY will have any value during the AirClaim or at any time in the future and FreeDAO will be not liable for any claim for redemption. 

 

In order to maintain the standards of an equitable system, we enforce a one-participant one-account policy, only registered and verified Participants may sign in and use our Services. 

 

Providing false information of any kind may result in the termination of access to the Services. Furthermore, we may suspend or disable your account if we determine that you have violated any provision of this Agreement.  

 

FreeDAO does not have access to your blockchain account. Information relating to transactions on your account is stored on the blockchain. FreeDAO cannot modify or amend this information.

Your Keys Your Responsibility

You are solely responsible for the protection and backup of your private keys to your blockchain and other access data. Furthermore, all on-chain transactions on the blockchain are transparent and immutable. FreeDAO shall not be liable or responsible in the event of the incorrect use of a blockchain, loss of funds, loss of privacy, loss of private keys, or damages incurred by unauthorized use of your account.

BY REGISTERING YOUR BLOCKCHAIN ACCOUNT IN ANY CURRENT OR FUTURE SERVICE (INCLUDING THE FREEOS DAPP), YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECURITY OF YOUR ACCOUNT AND YOU ARE FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ACTIVITIES THAT OCCUR UNDER THE ACCOUNT AND ANY OTHER ACTION TAKEN IN CONNECTION WITH IT.
