Regulatory risks and capital control risks
In numerous jurisdictions, the present and future regulatory status of cryptographic tokens, digital assets, and blockchain technology remains uncertain and unsettled. Predicting how or whether governmental authorities will regulate such technologies, or make changes to existing laws, regulations, and rules that impact cryptographic tokens, digital assets, and blockchain technology at any given time is challenging. Such changes could adversely affect tokens in various ways, including, for example, by determining that tokens are regulated financial instruments requiring registration. This could result in token holders being unable to use their tokens in the future without additional regulatory compliance. DEVITA may cease the distribution of tokens, halt further project development, or cease operations in a jurisdiction if governmental actions render it unlawful or commercially undesirable to continue.
The industry in which DEVITA operates is nascent, and the regulatory status concerning it may be unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. The industry may be subject to heightened oversight and scrutiny, including investigations or enforcement actions. There is no guarantee that governmental authorities in jurisdictions where DEVITA operates or where token holders reside will not examine DEVITA's operations or pursue enforcement actions. Such governmental activities may subject DEVITA to judgments, settlements, fines, penalties, restructuring, or cessation of certain products or services, all of which could damage DEVITA's reputation, increase operational costs, and materially adversely affect the tokens and project development.

Many jurisdictions enforce stringent regulations on international cross-border capital flow. Subject to local regulations in the token holder's location, regulations of the exchange's jurisdiction, and international financial laws, transferring tokens from one local jurisdiction to overseas exchanges may be deemed unlawful. This may expose token holders to arbitrary regulatory fines, sanctions, and enforcement actions.
