Terms and explanatory notes “BEST Rewards“

  1. General

    1. The following Terms (“Terms”) govern the rules for participating in the Bitpanda Ecosystem Token (“BEST”) rewards programme (“Programme”) of Bitpanda GmbH, with its corporate seat in Campus 2, Jakov-Lind-Straße 2, A-1020 Vienna (“Bitpanda”) and the legal relationship between Bitpanda and the Participant (as defined in Section 3. or “you”) arising thereof.

    2. By participating in the Programme, you confirm and accept these Terms, the BEST Terms and Conditions and the applicable Terms and Conditions of Bitpanda and any of its subsidiaries which are an integral part of these Terms.

  2. Term and Rewards

    1. This Programme starts in April 2020 and shall be in place for an indefinite period of time unless terminated or modified by Bitpanda. You are aware and accept that Bitpanda may amend and/or terminate this Programme at any time at its sole discretion. Bitpanda may stop payouts at any time and is in no way legally obliged to pay out any rewards.

    2. By participating in the Programme, you may receive rewards transferred in BEST amounting to the equivalent of 0.50% of your BEST holdings on Bitpanda (“Bitpanda Broker”) (the rewards called “BEST Rewards”). Any BEST held outside of the Bitpanda Broker (e.g. on Bitpanda Pro or on an external blockchain wallet) will not be taken into account. In addition to this 0.50%, you may receive more BEST Rewards depending on your BEST VIP level at 11:59:59 pm CET on the last day of the month:

      BEST VIP level 1 +0.05%
      BEST VIP level 2 +0.10%
      BEST VIP level 3 +0.15%
    3. You may receive BEST Rewards up to an additional 0.35% depending on your total amount traded in the previous month on the Bitpanda Broker - that is your trade activity from the 1st day of the previous month at 00:00 am CET, until the last day of the month at 11:59:59 pm CET (“Monthly Trading Volume”). Any trading volume generated outside of the Bitpanda Broker will not be taken into account. For the avoidance of doubt, it is hereby stated and clarified that any trading volume generated on Bitpanda Pro does not apply to this Programme.

      Monthly Trading Volume at least (>=) EUR 1,000 +0.05%
      Monthly Trading Volume at least (>=) EUR 5,000 +0.15%
      Monthly Trading Volume at least (>=) EUR 10,000 +0.25%
      Monthly Trading Volume at least (>=) EUR 50,000 +0.35%
    4. You acknowledge and accept that only Participants who (i) meet all the requirements described in Section 3. and (ii) were not, for any reason, disqualified by Bitpanda in accordance with Section 4. are eligible to receive the BEST Rewards.

    5. BEST Rewards for the previous month will be credited directly to your respective Bitpanda Broker BEST wallet during the course of the afternoon (CET) on the 1st day of the following month (eg. on the 1st of May, you receive the rewards for April). Even though Bitpanda will strive to transfer BEST Rewards swiftly, you acknowledge and accept that such transfer(s) may be delayed and Bitpanda shall not be liable for any losses arising out of or in connection with a late transfer (e.g. losses due to price changes). Bitpanda is in no way bound to pay out any BEST Rewards and you have no legal claim against Bitpanda in connection with this Programme.

    6. At the end of the month, Bitpanda will take a Snapshot of your (i) BEST holdings, (ii) BEST VIP level and (iii) Monthly Trading Volume (“Snapshot”). This Snapshot is taken at 11:59:59 pm CET on the last day of the month. Because of technical or other issues, discrepancies between the Snapshot and the actual figures and numbers might occur. You hereby acknowledge and accept that Bitpanda will not be liable for any direct or indirect losses resulting out of any Snapshot not representing your corresponding numbers.

  3. Requirements for Participation

    1. As this Programme constitutes a loyalty programme for active Bitpanda users, only registered and fully verified Bitpanda Clients (as defined in the Bitpanda terms and conditions) that accept these Terms are allowed to sign up and participate in the Programme (“Participant”). In order to be eligible to receive any BEST Rewards the Participant must therefore (i) be an existing and effective Bitpanda Client that signed up for this Programme, (ii) actively claim BEST Rewards each month, (iii) hold BEST in their Bitpanda Broker wallet (not Bitpanda Pro) and (iv) trade any digital asset at least once a month on the Bitpanda Broker (not Bitpanda Pro).

    2. You are aware and accept that Bitpanda may amend the requirements for the participation and/or terminate this Programme as described herein at its sole discretion at any time and you do not have any legal claim against Bitpanda arising out of or in connection with such an amendment or termination.

  4. Disqualification

    1. You hereby acknowledge and accept that Bitpanda may at its sole discretion disqualify a Participant from the Programme at any time for any reason, including but not limited to cases where Bitpanda suspects any illegal behavior (such as fraud, collusion between Participants, money laundering, manipulation of trading volume and/or prices on the Bitpanda Broker, etc).

    2. If disqualified, you hereby acknowledge and accept that you will not have any claim against Bitpanda including but not limited to any direct or indirect losses you might have accumulated in connection with the participation in the Programme.

  5. General Legal Notice

    1. BEST Rewards are designated to function as a loyalty programme for users who are active on the Bitpanda Broker. BEST Rewards do not represent or constitute any ownership right or stake, share or security or equivalent right to or relating to Bitpanda or any of its subsidiaries nor any legal claim for payouts.

    2. BEST Rewards itself does not represent a claim on or against (Forderung gegenüber) Bitpanda or any of its subsidiaries. BEST Rewards will only be activated in connection with the active usage of the Bitpanda Broker, for fully verified Bitpanda Clients that signed up to this Programme and who fulfill all requirements for participation as outlined in Section 3. For the avoidance of doubt, it is hereby clarified that this loyalty programme is performed only on the Bitpanda Broker and is neither linked nor incorporated with BEST itself.

    3. Bitpanda may amend or terminate Best Rewards anytime at its sole discretion.  

    4. Whether the distribution of BEST Rewards triggers tax consequences (such as, for example, income tax or value added tax) depends, inter alia, on the tax laws applicable in your state of residence and/or whether you qualify as an entrepreneur or not. Please contact your own tax advisor with regards to any tax consequences in connection with this Programme.

    5. Bitpanda will strive to ensure that any numbers and figures within your Bitpanda Broker dashboard (such as but not limited to your current BEST VIP level, amount of BEST Rewards) are true and accurate at all times. However, due to technical or other issues, discrepancies between displayed and actual numbers and figures might occur. You hereby acknowledge and accept that any numbers and figures displayed within your Bitpanda Broker dashboard are not binding determinants regarding the actual numbers and figures. Furthermore, you hereby acknowledge and accept that Bitpanda will not be liable for any direct or indirect losses resulting out of any such discrepancies and that no right or claim against Bitpanda can arise thereof.
