Delimitation of Service
We do not have access to your wallet, or any Digital Assets stored in it. Any Digital Assets stored using the Services are not in our control. As explained above, we do not store or have any means of recovering your private keys, mnemonics, PINs or passwords.
Tatoshi is not a bank, custodian, exchange, financial intermediary or regulated financial institution. We do not have control over or take any responsibility for any transactions made through our Services. We do not accept any deposits from, lend to, or generally engage in any kind of banking business or the business of a financial institution.
Our Services are for supported Digital Assets only. Any prices displayed are provided by a 3rd part provider (CoinDesk) and are not indicative of the Digital Assets being backed by any commodity or other form of money or having any other tangible value at all. We make no guarantees that Bitcoins or other Digital Assets can be exchanged or sold at the price displayed.
We have no control over and do not make any representations regarding the value of Digital Assets, or the operation of the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Assets supported on our platform. We assume no responsibility for the operation of the underlying protocols, and we are not able to guarantee their functionality, security or availability.
When you set-up our app, the Services generate and store a cryptographic private and public key pair that you may use to send and receive Bitcoin. The private key uniquely matches the wallet address and must be used in connection with the wallet address to authorize the transfer of cryptocurrency from or to that wallet address. The private key is stored directly in on your phone. Tatoshi has no access to your private key and may not, under any circumstance, initiate a transaction using your private key on your behalf.
IF YOU LOSE ACCESS TO YOUR WALLET OR YOUR ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEYS AND YOU HAVE NOT SEPARATELY STORED A BACKUP OF YOUR WALLET AND CORRESPONDING PASSWORD, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY CRYPTOCURRENCY YOU HAVE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT WALLET WILL BECOME INACCESSIBLE.
All transaction requests are irreversible. Tatoshi cannot retrieve your private keys or passwords if you lose or forget them and cannot guarantee transaction confirmation as we do not have control over the network.
Cryptocurrency networks are operated by decentralized networks of independent third parties. Once a transaction request has been submitted to a network via the Services, the network will automatically complete or reject the request and you will not be able to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction request.
The relevant cryptocurrency network is solely responsible for verifying and confirming proposed transactions that you submit via the Services, and Tatoshi Wallet cannot and does not confirm, cancel, or reverse crypto-to-crypto transactions, other than confirmation of the relevant network’s completion of a transaction. You acknowledge and agree that Tatoshi Wallet is not responsible for any errors or omissions that you make in connection with any cryptocurrency transaction initiated via the Services. The Services submit your transaction request for confirmation to the relevant network. However, Tatoshi Wallet has no control over any cryptocurrency network and therefore cannot and does not guarantee that any transaction request you submit via the Services will be completed. You acknowledge and agree that the transaction requests you submit via the Services may not be completed or may be substantially delayed. When you complete a transaction request via the Services, you authorize us to submit your transaction request to the relevant network in accordance with the instructions you provide via the Services.
All transaction requests are irreversible
Transfers to other Tatoshi users:

Tatoshi has no control over any cryptocurrency network and therefore cannot and does not guarantee that any transaction request you submit via the Services will be completed or executed properly.

You are solely responsible for ensuring all transaction details are correct, and you should carefully verify all transaction information, including the receiver address, prior to submitting transaction instructions to our Services.
