It is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations on, or introduce new regulations addressing, blockchain technology, which may be contrary to the GBT and/or the GBT Protocol project ecosystem which may, inter alia, result in substantial modifications of the GBT Protocol project ecosystem and the GBT Protocol project project, including termination and loss of GBT; (iv) changes in the future capital needs of GBT Protocol or its Affiliates and the availability of financing and capital to fund such needs. A lack of funding could impact the development of the GBT Protocol project platform and the uses or potential value of the GBT; (v) for a number of reasons including, but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of GBT, the failure of business relationships or competing intellectual property claims during development or operation, the GBT Protocol project project may no longer be a viable activity and may be dissolved or simply not launched, negatively impacting the GBT Protocol project ecosystem, the GBT and the potential utility of the GBT; (vi) the lack of interest from large number of companies, individuals and other organizations for the GBT Protocol project platform and services and that there may be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed applications.
