This Splinterlands Governance Token Whitepaper is for general information purposes only. It does not constitute investment advice, recommendations, or any form of solicitation. Any information provided is at all times subject to change by the sole discretion of Splinterlands.
Splinterlands is creating the SPS Token to function within the Splinterlands ecosystem in order to provide increasing levels of decision-making ability and control over the product to the player-base, in-game item owners, and other stakeholders. No SPS token will represent any economic interest in Splinterlands at any time, and Splinterlands developed SPS for the purpose of use within the Splinterlands Platform.
Through the development of SPS, Splinterlands does not grant any rights, express or implied, other than the right to use SPS on the Splinterlands Platform or within the DAO. In particular, Splinterlands expressly denies any ability of the SPS token to represent or confer any ownership right or stake, share, security, or equivalent rights, or any right to receive future revenue shares, intellectual property rights or any other form of participation in or relating to any Splinterlands product and/or Splinterlands and/or any of its corporate affiliates.
Splinterlands reserves the right to reject any usage of SPS tokens on the Splinterlands Platform. Splinterlands rejects any responsibility for any direct or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever arising directly or indirectly from: (i) reliance on any information provided, (ii) any error, omission or inaccuracy in any such information; or (iii) any action resulting from such information.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and except as otherwise specified in writing by Splinterlands: (i) SPS tokens are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranties of any kind, and Splinterlands expressly disclaims all implied warranties as to the SPS tokens, including, without limitation, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement; (ii) Splinterlands does not represent or warrant that the SPS tokens are reliable, current or error-free, or that technical defects in the SPS tokens will be corrected; and (iii) Splinterlands cannot and does not represent or warrant that the SPS tokens or the delivery mechanism for SPS tokens are free of viruses or other harmful components.

If you receive SPS tokens through an airdrop, please note that any Splinterlands platform contribution and/or participation does not represent, constitute or involve the exchange of value for any form of securities, investment units and/or form of ordinary shares in any project, in any platform, in Splinterlands, or any other related company.

All SPS recipients are responsible for implementing reasonable measures for securing their own wallet, vault or other storage mechanism used to receive and hold SPS tokens, including any requisite private key(s) or other credentials necessary to access such storage mechanism(s).

Prior to the DAO launch, Splinterlands will maintain control over the protocol. Upon launch of the DAO, Splinterlands will no longer maintain any control over the protocol, which will be completely dictated by the DAO and the Binance smart chain. Splinterlands expressly denies any and all responsibility for any transactions occurring via the Binance smart chain or through any third party. Splinterlands also maintains the sole discretion to launch the SPS token on a different blockchain, and in no way is required to launch on the Binance smart chain or any other blockchain whatsoever.
