An investment in the Dibbs Tokens involves a significant degree of risk. Some of the risks of an investment in the Dibbs Tokens are described under “Risk Factors,” beginning on page 31. These risks include the following:
- There can be no assurance that you will receive a return on your investment in Dibbs Tokens and you may lose the full value of your investment.
- The Dibbs Tokens are subject to significant transfer restrictions that may adversely impact your ability to resell the Dibbs Tokens and the price at which you may be able to resell them, if at all.
- There is no existing trading market for the Dibbs Tokens and there can be no assurance that a secondary market will develop for the Dibbs Tokens. If a secondary market does develop, there can be no assurance that it will provide the holders with liquidity for their investment or that it will continue for the life of the Dibbs Tokens.
- We have the right to redeem the Dibbs Tokens at any time after ten years or earlier upon the occurrence of certain events. The amount for which we redeem your Dibbs Tokens may be below market price or below the price at which tokens are sold in this Offering.
- Holders of the Dibbs Tokens will not be entitled to any voting or distribution or liquidation rights.
- The tax characterization of the Dibbs Tokens is uncertain and a subscriber must seek its own tax advice in connection with an investment in Dibbs Tokens.
- An investment in the Dibbs Tokens may result in adverse tax consequences to subscribers, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements. It is also possible that the income of Dibbs would be subject to significant amounts of income and/or withholding taxes.
- Dibbs is not registered with any non-U.S. or U.S. federal, state, provincial or territorial securities commission or any other regulatory authority. Accordingly, subscribers in Dibbs Tokens will generally not have the benefit of the subscriber protections available to subscribers in offerings by registered entities. To the extent we are required to register under any applicable securities or other laws, there can be no assurance that we will be able to comply in a timely fashion or at all.
- Any failure to comply with applicable laws or regulations may adversely impact our ability to undertake the actions outlined in this offering, our ability to continue operations, the liquidity of the Dibbs Tokens and your ability to recover your initial investment in the Dibbs Tokens.
The Dibbs Tokens have not been registered under the Securities Act, the securities laws of any state of or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and therefore cannot be resold, except as described in the section entitled “Transfer Restrictions” in this offering memorandum. Persons in the United States and U.S. Persons who purchase Dibbs Tokens will be required to maintain their Dibbs Tokens for a period of one year from the issuance of the Dibbs Tokens and will be required to make undertakings to Dibbs, that they will not sell to any other U.S. Person unless they sell all of their Dibbs Tokens to a U.S. Person. Non-U.S. Persons holding Dibbs Tokens will only be permitted to resell or transfer such Dibbs Tokens to other Non-U.S. Persons in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. These restrictions may adversely impact your ability to resell the Dibbs Tokens or the price at which you may be able to resell them, if at all. Dibbs Tokens are not redeemable at the option of the holder and Dibbs Token holders will not have the right to withdraw their capital. It is not contemplated that the Dibbs Tokens will ever be registered under the Securities Act or any other securities laws. Each Dibbs Token subscriber will be required to represent that it is a qualified subscriber under applicable securities laws and that it is acquiring Dibbs Tokens for investment purposes and not with a view to resale or distribution. Further, each Dibbs Token holder must represent that it will only sell or transfer its Dibbs Tokens in accordance with the restrictions set forth under “Transfer Restrictions” in this offering memorandum and in a manner permitted by applicable laws and regulations. Consequently, Dibbs Token holders must be prepared to bear the risk of an investment in Dibbs Tokens for an extended period of time.
Developing regulatory regimes. Regulation of tokens (including the Dibbs Tokens) and token offerings of cryptocurrencies (including Ethereum), blockchain technologies, and cryptocurrency exchanges are currently undeveloped and likely to rapidly evolve, and vary significantly among US or non-US federal, state and local jurisdictions and are subject to significant uncertainty. Some of the companies in which Dibbs invests may operate in highly regulated industries. Various legislative and executive bodies in the United States, Singapore and in other countries are currently considering, or may in the future consider laws, regulations, guidance, or other actions, which may severely impact Dibbs ’s ability to invest, or Dibbs ’s portfolio companies, ability to gain market share. Failure Dibbs, or Dibbs portfolio companies or their representatives to comply with any laws, rules, and regulations, some of which may not exist yet or are subject to interpretation and may be subject to change, could result in a variety of adverse consequences, including civil penalties and fines. It is the token holder’s responsibility to assure that all applicable laws are being followed and will not hold Dibbs liable for any practice that even unknowing violates laws governing the token holder’s jurisdiction.
New or changing laws and regulations or interpretations of existing laws and regulations may adversely impact Dibbs ’s ability to earn returns on investments, the value of the currency in which Dibbs Tokens may be redeemed or otherwise make distributions on Dibbs Tokens, the liquidity and market price of Dibbs Tokens, your ability to access marketplaces on which to trade Dibbs Tokens, Dibbs ’s or Dibbs ’s ability to operate as an ongoing concern and the structure, rights, and transferability of Dibbs Tokens. Therefore, there can be no assurance that any new or continuing regulatory scrutiny or initiatives will not have an adverse impact on the value of Dibbs Tokens and otherwise impede Dibbs activities.
The tax characterization of Dibbs Tokens is uncertain and a subscriber should consult its own tax advisor regarding the consequences of an investment in Dibbs Tokens. An investment in Dibbs Tokens may result in adverse tax consequences to subscribers, including withholding taxes, income taxes (possibly prior to the receipt by a subscriber of any cash or other property from Dibbs) and tax reporting requirements. It is possible that the income of Dibbs and/or Dibbs would be subject to significant amounts of income and/or withholding taxes. Each potential subscriber should consult with and must rely upon the advice of its own tax advisor with respect to the United States and non-U.S. tax consequences of an investment in Dibbs Tokens.
Blockchain Technology Risks
You may not have the skills necessary to secure, trade, or collect distributions using Dibbs Tokens. Participating in this Offering requires technical skill beyond that of many subscribers. Securing, trading or collecting distributions relating to Dibbs Tokens requires working knowledge of blockchain technology, blockchain assets and their attendant systems and processes. Similar knowledge of blockchain asset exchanges and other industry participants may be required.
The loss or destruction of a private key required to access blockchain assets may be irreversible. Dibbs ’s or your loss of access to private keys – or any other data loss concerning Dibbs ’s blockchain assets – could have a material adverse effect on its business or the Dibbs Tokens. Blockchain assets include, without limitation, Bitcoins, Ether and other cryptocurrencies, Dibbs Tokens and other cryptographic tokens. Blockchain assets are controllable only by those who know the unique private cryptographic key relating to the network address at which the blockchain assets are held. Dibbs and the Dibbs Token holders are required by the operation of many blockchain networks to publish the addresses concerning blockchain assets in use by them. To the extent, a private key is lost, destroyed or otherwise compromised and no backup of the private key is accessible, Dibbs or you may not be able to access the blockchain asset associated with the corresponding address and the private key will not be capable of being restored by the network. Any loss of private keys relating to digital wallets used to store blockchain assets could have a material adverse effect on Dibbs ’s business or you.
NAV Calculation Methodology
The NAV is calculated as the sum of the estimated fair value of the securities held by Dibbs plus cash or other assets, minus all current liabilities (including the operating expenses, estimated accrued expenses and appropriate reserves for contingent liabilities). The principal amounts of the investments (or the current market value of the investments), currency balances, portfolio company token balances and other assets that support the overall value of the Dibbs Tokens, the value of which is expressed in currency other than ETH shall be valued after taking into account the market rate or rates of exchange in force on the applicable valuation date. For investments with an active market, fair value is deemed to equal the price of the last market transaction at the date and time NAV is calculated, as recorded by the three primary exchanges by volume on which the security or use token is traded, or, if no sale was reported on the valuation date on the primary exchange where that security is traded, the security will be valued at the last sales price on that exchange when that security was last traded. For securities without an active market, fair value is estimated by employing industry-standard methods, including but not limited to, cost basis, adjusted price of recent investment rounds, entity valuations based on recent third-party investments, valuation by an independent securities expert selected by Dibbs, valuation of other public or private comparable investments and evaluating conditions embedded into Simple Agreement for Future Equity notes.
NAV Reporting & Guaranteed Buybacks
On a quarterly basis (within 30 days following March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31) and calculated in ETH, BTC, BCC, LTC, and USD. Dibbs will report publicly on https://www.dibbs.co, the total level of investments in public and private securities and other assets, and an update of the NAV on a Per-Dibbs Token basis, as well as a list of companies currently invested in and recent changes in the portfolio. We will make our best efforts to establish a central account on the ethereum blockchain that can act as an escrow holdings account to help establish a transparent tool for calculating market capitalization for the Dibbs tokens. Each reporting period 30% of all profitable gains will be converted into cryptocurrencies and deposited into this account or one similar if using a currency other than ETH. Money shall remain there for a minimum of 10 years from the deposit date. Funds may only be removed if it becomes clear it would be unsafe or obviously a financially poor source to store value or we are able to establish a similar account(s) with holdings in other lucrative cryptocurrencies. We anticipate maintaining account(s) that will provide a stable and secure store of value, with the potential to earn significant returns from an increasing overall market value. The account(s) used to determine the NAV, will also become the allocated funds that can be initiated as part of the ‘buyback’ program. After a minimum of 5 years from the closing of the ICO, anyone who purchased dibbs tokens from dibbs.co will be eligible to receive the current calculated value of the tokens, minus any expenses for financial fees that we may incur in order to distribute the funds upon request. All funds will be settled in terms of ETH and are most likely to take place by imitating an interaction with a smart contract that resides on the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Before any person(s) is able to initiate this it will be required to receive a special code to do so. Instructions for this will be posted on http://buyback.dibbs.co. This program may only be offered to individuals that purchased tokens directly through dibbs.co during the pre-sale or actual ICO, held by Dibbs LLC. Anyone that received tokens from other sources may request this, but will not be guaranteed the ability to initiate a buyback.
Realization Payments & Buybacks
The buyback program will be allowed only after a minimum of 5 years from the closing of our ICO or 1 year if the tokens do not obtain any listings on a cryptocurrency exchange where they can be traded against fiat currency such as Bitcoin. and is only guaranteed to individuals that purchased directly from http://dibbs.co. We do not encourage this method and recommend selling tokens on the open market to liquidate your holdings, however, if for some reason a secondary market is not established or you are unable to do this, we will offer a guaranteed buyback of the tokens at such time after the five years of closing the ICO. The value of the buyback will be based on the accounts used to determine the NAV, minus any other financial expenses that are incurred in order to make a payment towards the token holder(s). If a token holder wishes to initiate a buyback of their tokens they may do so by following the instructions at http://buyback.dibbs.co. This site will be operational at such time that buybacks are allowed due to enough time elapsing from the original date of the ICO’s successful closing.
Prospective subscribers are advised to consult their tax advisors as to the consequences of an investment in the Dibbs Tokens. Dibbs will not be held responsible for informing you of any tax regulations within your jurisdiction. It is the subscriber’s responsibility to understand and obey all of the laws which pertain to the subscriber’s circumstance.
