Before trading any crypto assets it is important to understand the risks. This overview summarizes certain risks associated with COTI. 

The U.S. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has expressed an opinion about COTI, including an opinion that COTI itself is a security.See the SEC’s June 2023 complaint against Binance for more information.

Token Description & Project Background

Coti is a Layer-1 Proof-of-Work blockchain which serves as a decentralized payment network. It allows merchants and consumers to exchange goods for cryptocurrency, stablecoins and traditional fiat currency.

The protocol is supported by a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) data structuring technology known as the Trustchain. Coti aims to build a “finance on the blockchain” ecosystem to meet the challenges of traditional finance, such as high fees, latency and lack of global inclusion.

COTI is the platform’s native token and is used as a medium of exchange within the network.

The COTI token launched in May 2019 on KuCoin.

The project was founded by Shahaf Bar-Geffen. 

Risks of COTI

Like an investment in other crypto assets, there are some general risks to investing in COTI. These include:  (i) volatility risk and liquidity risk, (ii) short history risk, (iii) demand risk, (iv) forking risk, (v) code defects, (vi) regulatory risk, (vii) electronic trading risk, and (viii) cyber security risk. For additional information of these and other general risks associated with crypto assets and Uphold’s platform, please refer to the Risks Specific to Holding Digital Assets statement.

In addition to these general risks, an investment in COTI is subject to the following specific risks:

  • The Layer-1 space faces intense competition. Many blockchains claim unparalleled transaction speeds, low fees, high security, and many bill themselves as ‘enterprise-grade’ solution providers vying for the same clients. Any potential success associated with COTI is dependent on its rate of adoption by projects, fintech businesses, developers, as well as the growth in demand payment services infrastructure. 

We emphasize that this Crypto Asset Statement is not an exhaustive description or summary of all risks associated with COTI. Investors should conduct their own research and perform their own assessment before trading any crypto asset to determine the appropriate level of risk for their personal circumstances.
