Terms of Service

The following Terms of Service (the "Terms”) govern your access to and use of: (a) our cryptographic tokens which are referred to as "Vemanti USD,” (also known as "USDV,”); (b) all other products or services provided by us to you in connection with the foregoing (collectively, the "Vemanti Platform” or "Platform”). These Terms of Service form an agreement between Vemanti Digital, Ltd. and its parent, subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively "Vemanti,” "Company,” "Technology Service Provider," "us,” "we,” "our”), our regulated trustee partners, including First Digital Trust Limited ("First Digital Trust," "Trustees,” "Regulated Trustee," and also known as the "Issuer," or "Administrator" of the convertible virtual currency, USDV), and you.

2. Services
2.1 Purchase and Redemption of USDV


USDV TOKENS ARE NOT MONEY, CURRENCY, OR LEGAL TENDER AND SHOULD NOT BE TREATED AS SUCH. USDV WILL NOT BE ISSUED TO, OR REDEEMED FROM ANY UNITED STATES PERSON.
Every USDV token is fully collateralized. USDV utilizes tokenization smart contracts and escrow accounts managed by Trustees in order to legally create a 1-to-1 parity to the USD via direct redemption of USD held in escrow accounts. At the instruction of the Regulated Trustee, our publicly-audited smart contracts issue USDV tokens when USD is deposited into the escrow accounts ("Reserves”) and destroy USDV tokens when USD is redeemed/withdrawn from the escrow accounts. This ensures that the number of USDV in circulation and the amount of USD, or held in escrow by our Trustees are equal. The Reserve holdings are also published periodically and subject to ongoing attestations by third party auditors. Except as outlined under the terms and conditions of the Distribution Awards, Partner Rewards and Affiliate Referral Rewards programs, USDV tokens do not pay interest, dividends or any other type of earnings. All interest and earnings generated by the escrow accounts are owned by the Company and its Trustees.

USDV Collateral


The composition of the Reserves used to back USDV is within the sole control and at the sole and absolute discretion of Vemanti and its Trustees. Vemanti and its Trustee, in their sole discretion, may invest the Reserves; however, in no case will the Reserve comprise less than 20% USD fiat currency.

USDV are designed to be a stable store of value. USDV are not an investment nor are they intended to fluctuate in value.
Possession of USDV tokens does not guarantee redemption or exchange of the tokens for real currency by the Company or its Trustees. The Company and Trustee reserve the right to refuse issuance or redemption of USDV tokens for any reason including, without limitation: if any act, conduct, transaction, omission, or misrepresentation, of the party requesting the issuance or redemption, violates, attempts to violate, causes, aids, or abets the violation of any applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, or regulations; is suspected or believed to have blocked property, frozen assets, or economic resources, or the proceeds of any crime, terrorist financing, or corruption related to any person or government official under any applicable laws; exposes the Company or Trustee to sanctions, restrictions, penalties, or reputational harm. The Company and Trustee also reserve the right to refuse to issue or redeem USDV upon receipt of any subpoena, order, or request from any government, government official, or law enforcement authority of competent jurisdiction. Use of Vemanti’s services are contingent on your compliance with First Digital Trust’s policies and agreements. First Digital Trust’s Acceptable Use Policy can be found here: https://1stdigital.com/legal-and-regulatory/acceptable-use-policy/.
