Goal of the PairedWorld Foundation is creating sustainable
incentives for human interactions by uniting and developing existing digital networks (e.g.,
networks of NFT collectors, sport projects, etc.) into one global network with real-life
human connections and shared human experiences (“PairedWorld Ecosystem”). For this
purpose, PairedWorld provides a novel mechanism allowing token incentivised social
interaction via a mobile application (“w3meet App”), which is being released in an alpha
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THE W3MEET APP IS CURRENTLY IN ALPHA TESTING,
WHICH MEANS THAT IS STILL UNDER SUBSTANTIAL DEVELOPMENT AND LIKELY
CONTAINS ERRORS, BUGS OR OTHER ISSUES THAT COULD AFFECT ITS
FUNCTIONALITY AND PERFORMANCE.
The w3meet App is provided as a test version only and therefore on an "as is" and "as
available" basis. The Company make no warranties, express or implied, regarding the
reliability, suitability or availability of the w3meet App. The Company will not be liable for
any damages, losses or interruptions caused by the use of the w3meet App or any
malfunctioning / non-functioning of the w3meet App.
using the alpha version of the w3meet App.
These Terms, together with any documents expressly incorporated by reference, govern
the access and use of the w3meet App. By using the w3meet App, the User agrees to be
bound by these Terms and all the terms incorporated herein by reference.
The Company reserves the right to change or modify these Terms at any time in its own
and sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when communicated on the
website or other channels chose by the Company. By continuing to access or use the
w3meet App, the User confirms that he accepts the updated Terms and all of the terms
incorporated therein by reference.
3. w3meet App and Access
3.1 User Profile and Soul Token
In order to access the w3meet App, the User is required to create a user profile, provide
general information (e.g., name, e-mail, address, age, gender, interests etc.) and connect
his personal wallet to the user account.
To participate in the PairedWorld Ecosystem, the User must hold an individualised Soul Token.
Soul Tokens are not transferable (EIP-5484 – soulbound token) and serve as identity of
the Users in the PairedWorld Ecosystem. Soul Tokens consist of 10 different levels of “Souls”, each
signalling a different status and reputation (similar to a membership level) in the PairedWorld
Users shall not be permitted to make their account accessible to third parties and Users
remain responsible for any and all use and activities performed via or in connection with
their account. Users agree to immediately notify the Company, if they discover or
otherwise suspect any security issues related to their account.
Users must provide true, accurate, current and complete information when using the
w3meet App. In particular, when Users create an account, they must provide true,
accurate, current and complete information about themselves, and must maintain and
promptly update such information as necessary.
3.2 No Wallet Provision
To use PairedWorld the w3meet App must be connected to a third-party wallet (e.g.,
MetaMask) and the wallet is subject to the terms and conditions of the respective third-
party wallet provider. The Company does not provide a wallet solution and has no control
over the Private Keys of the Users. Users are solely responsible for the security of their
3.3 Third-Party Events and Social Interaction among Users
Users can create events on the w3meet App for real-life interactions with other Users.
The Company has no control and is not responsible for such third-party events.
The Company shall not be liable for any damages, losses, or injuries arising from or
related to social interactions between Users on events created by using the w3meet App.
User(s) understand and accept that engaging in social interactions on events created by
using the w3meet App is solely at their own risk, and the Company bears no
responsibility for the actions, behaviour, or conduct of other Users. Users are advised to
exercise caution, discretion, and use their best judgment when participating in any events
created by the w3meet App.
All transactions made in relation to the PairedWorld Ecosystem and/or the w3meet App, are
facilitated by smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. The Ethereum blockchain
requires the payment of a transaction fee (“Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on
the blockchain, and thus every such transaction requires the payments of Gas Fees as
well. The value of the Gas Fee changes, often unpredictably, and is entirely outside of the
control of the Company. User also acknowledges and agrees that the Gas Fee is non-
refundable under all circumstances. It is at the sole responsibility of the Users to inform
themselves about applicable fees and to pay such fees.

risk. User understands and agrees that the service is provided on an “as is” and “is
available” basis and the Company expressly disclaims warranties or conditions of any
kind, either express or implied. The Company and its officers, employees, directors,
shareholders, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents and licensors make no warranty or

safe, the Company cannot and does not represent or warrant that the service is available
at all times, free of viruses or other harmful components. The Company cannot guarantee
the security of any data that User discloses online. No advice or information, whether oral

The Company is not responsible or liable for any sustained losses or injury due to
vulnerability or any kind of failure, abnormal behaviour or software (e.g., wallet, smart
contract), the PairedWorld App and related smart contracts. The Company is not responsible
for losses or injury due to late reports by developers or representatives (or no report at
all) of any issues with the PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts.
The foregoing does not affect any warranties that cannot be excluded or limited under
applicable law. To the extent the Company may not, as a matter of applicable law,
disclaim any (implied) warranty, the scope and duration of such warranty shall be the
minimum permitted by applicable law.
The services of the Company may rely on third-party software. If the Company is unable
to maintain a good relationship with such third parties; if the terms and conditions or
pricing of such third parties change; if the Company violates or cannot comply with the
terms and conditions of such third parties; or if any of such third parties loses market
share or falls out of favour or is unavailable for a prolonged period of time, access to and
use of the PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts may suffer.
User accepts and acknowledges the risks connected to the use of the PairedWorld App and
related smart contracts. In particular, but not exhaustively, the User understands the
inherent risks listed hereinafter. By using the PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts,
the User acknowledges and assumes these risks:
10.1 Risk of Software Weaknesses
The User understands and accepts that the PairedWorld App and related smart contracts,
other involved software and technology as well as technical concepts and theories are
still unproven in a live (non-test-)environment, which is why there is no warranty that the
process for the initiation of the PairedWorld and issuing, receiving, use and ownership of
the tokens will be uninterrupted or error-free and there is an inherent risk that the
software and related technologies and theories could contain weaknesses, vulnerabilities
or bugs causing, inter alia, the complete loss of the tokens.
The User particularly understands and accepts that the PairedWorld App and related smart
contracts are (once deployed) fully decentralised and immutable and that, as a
consequence, it may be difficult or impossible to cure software weaknesses.
The User understands and accepts that the PairedWorld App is alpha version and is still
under substantial development and likely contains errors, bugs or other issues that could
affect its functionality and performance. The PairedWorld App is provided as a test version only
and therefore on an "as is" and "as available" basis. The Company make no warranties,
express or implied, regarding the reliability, suitability or availability of the PairedWorld App.
10.2 Regulatory Risk
The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens
may be subject to change and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect
the use of the PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts.
The User understands and accepts that there is a possibility that certain jurisdictions will
apply existing regulations or introduce new regulations which may be contrary to the
current setup, and which may, inter alia, result in substantial modifications to the PairedWorld
App and/or related smart contracts, including the termination of the Project and the loss
of the tokens or their functionality for the User.
The User understands and accepts that it remains in the User’s responsibility to comply
with any laws and regulations applicable to the User when holding or transferring tokens.
User explicitly accepts and acknowledges that the Company assumes no liability for any
and all risks relating to taxation or regulatory issues in connection with the use of the
PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts. It remains in the sole responsibility of the
User to seek local legal, tax and regulatory advice.
10.3 Risk of Hacking Attacks
The User understands and accepts that, while best efforts are made to reduce potential
software attacks on the test version of the PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts,
other involved software, and/or other technology components may be exposed to attacks
by hackers or other individuals that could result in theft or loss of the tokens.
The User understands and accepts that, as with other blockchains, the blockchain used
for the PairedWorld could be susceptible to consensus-related attacks, including but not
limited to double-spend attacks, majority validation power attacks, censorship attacks,
and byzantine behaviour in the consensus algorithm or be subject to forks. Any
successful attack or fork presents a risk to the Ethereum Network, the PairedWorld App and/or
related smart contracts, the expected proper execution and sequencing of token-
transactions and the expected proper execution and sequencing of contract computations
as well as the token balances in the wallet of the User.
There are risks associated with using internet and blockchain based products, including
but not limited to, the risk associated with hardware, software and internet connections,
the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain
unauthorized access to information stored within Users’ profile. User accepts and
acknowledges that the Company will not be responsible for any communication failures,
disruptions, errors, distortions or delays User may experience when using the PairedWorld
App and/or related smart contracts for transactions, however caused.
11. Modifications to the PairedWorld App
The Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify, suspend, or discontinue,
temporarily or permanently, the provision of the PairedWorld App (or any features or parts
thereof) at any time and without liability as a result.
Users are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to their use of the
PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts. The Company is not responsible for
determining or paying the taxes that apply to such use.
The Company and the User are independent contractors. These Terms do not create nor
is it intended to create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary or
employment relationship between the Parties.
If any provision of this Terms is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such
invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision of the Terms or
invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction. Upon such
determination that any provision is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the Terms shall be
modified to effectuate the original intent of the original provision as closely as possible.
User may not assign or transfer any rights and licenses granted under these Terms,
without prior written (text form sufficient) consent of the Company. The Company may
freely assign or transfer any rights and licenses granted under this Terms without
14. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms as well as the use of the PairedWorld App and/or related smart contracts shall
be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Switzerland without giving
effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of Switzerland or any
other jurisdiction). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods shall be excluded.
Any dispute arising out of or in conjunction with these Terms shall be submitted to the
exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the canton of Zug, Switzerland, although the
Company retain the right to bring any suit, action, or proceeding against User for breach
of these Terms in its country of residence or any other relevant country. Users waive any
and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction by such courts and to the venue in such
