Solethium is a distributed application that runs on the Ethereum network. It uses Ethereum deployed smart contracts to enable users to buy, own and transfer crypto collectibles – digital Solethium Objects. Those objects are presented visually on our website (the “Site”). The smart contracts and the Site are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “App”.
By using this App, this Site, and/or these Solethium Objects, or by clicking “agree”, you confirm that you understand these Terms and accept these Terms. In the event that you are using this Site, this App, or these Solethium Objects on behalf of another company or legal entity, you indicate that you have the legal authority to accept these Terms on the other party’s behalf, and that any mention of “you” in this contract means the other party that you represent. If you do not have the authority to represent another party, then you do not have permission to use this App, this Site, or these Solethium Objects.
In making this App, we have used the name of solar system objects to create unique, one-of-a-kind Solethium Objects – Smart Contract tokens – which are represented by ERC721 tokens on the Ethereum Blockchain. New Solethium Objects will be released in the future if we decide to expand the App. Each Solethium Object may be purchased crypto currency ETHER. You may purchase any Solethium Object you want, and any other party may purchase a Solethium Object from you if the other party is willing to pay a higher sum. The price itself and price increase definition of the Solethium Objects are coded into the smart contract itself. That means they can’t be changed by anyone, including the App creators. Bear in mind that you may not stop another party from purchasing a Solethium Object that you currently own. Also, no other third party may stop you from purchasing a Solethium Object that you wish to own. Whichever party is willing to pay the current cost of the Solethium Objects may own it after he or she completes the transaction.
All planets and the Sun as Solethium Objects are PARENT objects. When you own PARENT object, you will get the certain percentage from every sale of objects directly orbiting that PARENT object. Exact percentage coded into the smart contract itself and can’t be changed by anyone.
There are certain Solethium Objects with SPECIAL trade properties. Those are objects like Trade or Research Space Stations, or like satellites with bases on them. When you own both any PARENT object and object with SPECIAL trade properties, your PARENT percentage will be boosted and you will make even bigger profits.
Example: If you own the Sun Solethium Object, you will get 3% from every sale of objects directly orbiting the Sun (like Earth, Mars, Jupiter, …). But if you also own Hermes Trade Station Solethium Object, your PARENT Sun percentage will be boosted by another 0.5 percentage points. Your new Sun percentage gain will be 3,5 %. Such SPECIAL objects will boost ALL your parent objects. Of course, you can own more than one SPECIAL and more than one PARENT object, bringing you big gains on all game sales by adding up their properties.
The Solethium App
This App requires that you have installed a Google Chrome or Firefox web browser that also has a MetaMask browser extension installed. MetaMask is an electronic wallet created by a third party that allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using Ethereum cryptocurrency. Please note that you may not use any other electronic wallet on the App other than MetaMask. That doesn’t mean you can’t use other electronic wallets and third-party applications to transfer funds to your MetaMask wallet in order to make purchases and receive payment on the App. If you do not log on to the App with the correct browser (either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and/or if the browser does not have the MetaMask extension installed you will not be able to interact with the App in any meaningful way. Any and all transactions that take place in the App will be on the Ethereum blockchain. You understand that by using the App, your Ethereum public wallet address will be made visible to other users of the App as well as third parties each and every time you engage in a transaction on the App. We do not own and we do not control any of the following third-party products used for the function of this App: MetaMask, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or the Ethereum network. We do not own and we do not control any other third-party site, product or service that you may choose to access, visit, or use for the purpose of interacting with or using the App. We will not be held liable, and are not liable, for the acts or omissions by any such third party, nor are we liable, or will we be held liable, for any damage that you may suffer as a result of interacting with or using any of the mentioned or unmentioned third parties. You must provide accurate and complete registration information when you create an account to utilize the App. You are solely responsible for the safety and security of your MetaMask wallet and/or any other electronic wallet you utilize to interact with the App. You are solely responsible for the safety and security of your account. If you become aware of a security breach in regards to your password or your account, you agree to notify us immediately upon discovery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This App allows you to buy and collect digital assets – Solethium Objects. There is no guarantee that other players or anyone else will buy these assets from you. If you choose to buy Solethium Object in the App, you must accept and understand the risk of potentially not being able to sell your Solethium Object in the future. The App is designed for collectors who choose to pay for the ownership of a digital asset. Play responsibly and do not spend more than you feel the Solethium Object is worth!
Fees and payment
If you decide to purchase any Solethium Objects on the App, any and all transactions will be conducted through the Ethereum network utilizing a MetaMask electronic wallet directly to a Solethium Smart Contract on the blockchain, which is not controlled by the Apps creators. We will not have any control over these payments or transactions, nor will we be able to reverse any transaction that occurs. Because of this, we will have no liability to you or any other third party for any claims or damages that may occur due to any transaction that takes place on the App. The Ethereum network requires that you pay a transaction fee, commonly known as “Gas”, for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. Gas is intended to fund the hardware and software that runs the Ethereum network, as well as to prevent misuse and spam. If you choose to interact with the App via our Site or without using the App or our Site as a portal, you will still need to pay a fee for any and every transaction you make on the Ethereum network. The Solethium Smart Contract keeps a fixed 2,5% commission fee on every transaction conducted through the App, in addition to the Gas charged by the Ethereum network. The creators of the Site and the App do not have access or control over these fees, as it is handled directly on the distributed Ethereum network. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYMENTS DIRECTLY ON OUR WEBSITE.
