  • The PENKY tokens will be issued through a technical process that uses ”Blockchain” technology. This is an open source IT protocol over which the DAO has no rights or liability in terms of its development and operation. The PENKY token distribution mechanism will be controlled by a Smart Contract; this involves a computer program which can be executed on the Ethereum network or on another blockchain network compatible with the Smart Contract programming language.

  • The PENKY tokens are based on the Ethereum protocol. Any malfunction, unplanned function or unexpected operation of the Ethereum protocol may cause the PENKY token network to malfunction or operate in an unexpected way. Moreover, the native Ethereum Protocol account unit may itself lose value in a similar way to tokens, and also in other ways. The DAO assumes no liability or responsibility in this respect except in the event of intentional misconduct or gross negligence directly attributable to the DAO.
