5. AIC as a cryptocurrency
AC offers the "AIC", (AIC) a crypto currency (virtual currency). AC offers this "coin" and provides services for the AIC. The AIC are mined on the blockchain programmed by AC.
The AIC is a pure arithmetic unit, it does not exist physically. The number of already mined and circulating AIC’s steadily increases up to a maximum and no longer changeable number of 21 million and can be checked in the block explorer (https://explorer.aladincoins.com/) be checked.
The blockchain verifies and seals all transactions made with AIC and thus ensures the correct allocation and recognition of the AIC to the users of the services offered by the AC. You have no right to the release or storage of AIC or equivalent as a matter.
The AIC is considered a cryptocurrency. However, you have no legal claim against any person or institution for payment of AIC unless you have a dispute with a 3rd party vendor who accepts AIC; in which case, AIC is hereby indemnified from any action. AC does not give anyone a right to convert AIC into money. It is only able to be exchanged for other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. AC also makes no representations or warranties regarding the value, the expectation of value and/or the value of AIC’s; although it does present a speculative valuation in marketing materials based on AC’s mining operations, other operations being developed in the future, as well as the comparison to Bitcoin. AC does not in any way guarantee any future valuation of AIC.
6. Publicly visible blockchain
AC operates the blockchain on its own and/or controlled IT infrastructure. The blockchain is (re)written using computational methods to verify and seal the creation and each transaction with AIC. The blockchain operated by AC is publicly available.
You can review the transactions of various wallets at any time, and you expressly agree that others may verify your wallet transactions. The block explorer can be found at the following Internet address: https://explorer.aladincoins.com
AC is entitled to adapt the programming of the blockchain, as far as technically feasible, to the needs of AC and the market at any time. At times there may be technical issues. AC is not responsible for any change in the value of AIC if the AIC Platform is temporarily down for IT management to fix a problem.
7. Open source code AIC
The blockchain "source code" is available to the public as it is a decentralized cryptocurrency (such as Bitcoin) with open source code.
8. Tokens and their conversion into AIC’s
The blockchain creates AIC’s continuously and independently of the sales of other coins or tokens. AC cannot speed up or slow down this process (only the blockchain itself is programmed to keep the blocks as consistent as possible, so that more computing power in the system makes tasks harder, with more information to process or less processing power in the system). Therefore, it cannot be guaranteed that at any time someone wants to buy AIC’s, the necessary number of AIC’s has already been generated.
In order to be able to obtain ownership of AIC’s immediately, you can acquire them on the exchanges on which they are being offered. AIC’s are mined by AC. Participation in the mining activities doesn’t necessarily require membership in the multi-level marketing program developed and managed by AC. An individual can mine AIC on the own. AC doesn’t provide support to individuals mining AIC. The mining operation provides underlining intrinsic value for the AIC.
9. Mining Aladin Coin
AC mines AIC for its members and provides a bonus structure for those members based on a multi-level marketing (MLM) structure. Mining information can be found at https://aladinmine.org/aic/. Individuals who wish to mine AIC on their own may do so at their own risk, talent and effort. Individuals who wish AC to assist them in mining must participate in the MLM and can register at: https://www.aladincapital.com
10. No deposits with AC / No bank, trusteeship or administration
AIC is considered cryptocurrency, and AC is not a registered and regulated bank. It is a Self-Regulated Organization (SRO) Swiss Trust Company regulated by FINMA in Switzerland. None of the services offered by AC, in particular not in connection with the AIC and the processing of transactions with AIC (namely in the form of the operation of the various platforms CitiExchange.org, aladincoins.com and aladinmines.org), implies that at any time you have a "deposit" or a deposit account at AC within the meaning of banking legislation.

11. Transactions and transaction restrictions
On its online platforms, in particular Aladincapital.com and Aladincoins.com, AC provides only the software or platform and thus the processing service with which you can register transactions for processing in the blockchain. The logged-in transactions are processed by the blockchain in an automatic process. This process is pre-programmed and protected against any interference. This ensures every transaction is correctly verified and sealed. AC can therefore not intervene in this process. It also cannot undo blockchain verified and sealed transactions.
In the case of transactions entered incorrectly by you, namely erroneous transfers, you can contact the AC in writing or by email. This will inquire whether the recipient of the erroneous transaction agrees to a voluntary return transfer. If he does not, AC will provide you with the contact details of the recipient so that you can contact him or work backwards. AC has no further obligations in this process.
AC does not handle transactions and payments; AC does not hold and manage funds from you and third parties in the various wallets; AC only provides access to the blockchain. AC is not involved in the settlement of payment transactions and payment processes of the parties involved. AC does not guarantee a specific processing time for transactions. AC does however utilize the MLM member funds to buy and manage cryptocurrency mining machines and operations for its member benefits.
AC is under no obligation to monitor or verify the transactions in or through AIC or any other currency on these platforms.
