CryptoHorse is a distributed application that runs on the Ethereum network, using specially-developed smart contracts (each, a “Smart Contract”) to enable users to own, transfer, and breed genetically unique digital horses or digital
1. Our CryptoHorse's
A. We have utilized Smart Contracts to develop our initial generation of CryptoHorse's (“Gen-Zero horses ”). We will release a certain number of Gen-Zero horse's “on to the marketplace” (and make them available for purchase) on the day we first launch the dApp. We will then release an additional Gen-Zero Horse and will make each newly-released Gen-Zero horse available for purchase via a marketplace.
Our Smart Contracts enforce a hard limit of 20,000 Gen-Zero horses.
B. As users breed their CryptoHorse's, new and unforeseen generations of CryptoHorse will come into existence! Using the proprietary genetic combination algorithm that we have designed as part of the dApp, each newly-bred CryptoHorse will have some of the genetic traits of its parents. At the same time, other, genetic traits may be expressed. Unique and surprising traits may be expressed when CryptoHorse's are bred in the right combinations. The Smart Contracts have total CryptoHorse control over the pseudo-random elements of our breeding process, which means that we cannot manipulate or influence them.
C. How you breed your CryptoHorse is entirely up to you. You can breed your own CryptoHorse with one another. Our CryptoHorse have fixed gender, which means that in any particular breeding transaction, the CryptoHorse's owners can choose a stallion, the mare. When the new horse is born, it will be shown in the stable / your wallet. The breeding of two CryptoHorse's will produce another horse 4times
2. Our CryptoJockeys
A. We have utilized Smart Contracts to develop our CryptoJockeys (“Jockeys ”). We will release a certain number of Jockeys “on to the jockey club” (and make them available for purchase) on the day we first launch the dApp. We will then release an additional Jockeys and will make each newly-released Jockey available for purchase via a marketplace.
Our Smart Contracts enforce a hard limit of 20,000 jockeys.
B. Jockeys are not breedable.
3. Crypto Horse Shoe
A. We have utilized Smart Contracts to develop our CryptoHorseShoes (“HorseShoes ”). We will release a certain number of Horseshoes “in the HorseShoe Market” (and make them available for purchase) on the day we first launch the dApp. We will then release an additional HorseShoes and will make each newly-released HorseShoes available for purchase via a marketplace.
B. Horseshoes are later availabe for melting.
C .Horshoes are needed for the later horse races.
D. Horshoeshops can be purchased. The owner of a horseshoe shop gets a sales commission from all horseshoes sold.
E. Horshoeshops can be purchased in a Dutch auction. Dutch auction means that the price is getting cheaper and cheaper until someone buys. The Dutch auction takes place only at the first sale of the shop. The owner of a horseshoe shop receives a sales commission from all horseshoes sold. This amounts to 50% of the sales commission. 2.5% of each sale value in the respective owning store.
4. Crypto Horse Saddle
A. We have utilized Smart Contracts to develop our CryptoHorseSaddles (“Saddle ”). We will release a certain number of Saddles in the “Saddle Shop” (and make them available for purchase) on the day we first launch the dApp Update. We will then release an additional Horse Saddle and will make each newly-released Horse Saddle available for purchase via a marketplace.
B. Horse Saddles are later available made from Saddlemakers
C .Saddles are needed for some horse races.
D. Saddleshops can be purchased. The owner of a Saddle shop gets a sales commission from all horseshoes sold.
E.Saddleshops can be purchased in a Dutch auction. Dutch auction means that the price is getting cheaper and cheaper until someone buys. The Dutch auction takes place only at the first sale of the shop. The owner of a horseshoe shop receives a sales commission from all horseshoes sold. This amounts to 50% of the sales commission. 2.5% of each sale value in the respective owning store.
5. The App
A. To most easily use the dApp, you must first install the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser. Once you have installed Chrome, you will need to install a browser extension called
B. Transactions that take place on the App are managed and confirmed via the Ethereum blockchain. You understand that your Ethereum public address will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction on the dApp.
C. We neither own nor control MetaMask, Coinbase, Google Chrome, the Ethereum network, or any other third party site, product, or service that you might access, visit, or use for the purpose of enabling you to use the various features of the App. We will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will we be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties.
D.

You are responsible for the security of your account and your MetaMask wallet (and other Ethereum wallets and accounts). If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account with us, you agree to notify us immediately info@CryptoHorse.ch
6. Fees and Payment
A. If you elect to purchase, trade, or breed CryptoHorse's or CryptoJockeys or CryptoHorseShoe’s or CryptoSaddle on the dApp, or with or from other users via the dApp, any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the Ethereum network via MetaMask. We will have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. With that in mind, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in via the dApp, or using the Smart Contracts, or any other transactions that you conduct via the Ethereum network or MetaMask.
B. Ethereum requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralized Ethereum network. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the dApp.
C. In addition to the Gas Fee, each time you utilize a Smart Contract to conduct a transaction with another user via the dApp, you authorize us to collect a commission of 5% of the total value of that transaction (each, a “Commission”) and a fee "Breeding fee" . The Breeding fee can be changed several times a day and is approximately between 0.002 and 0.04 ETH This measure is to avoid inflation or deflation of the market and you will see the current fee in the FAQ. You acknowledge and agree that the Commission will be transferred directly to us through the Ethereum network as part of your payment.
D. As between us, you will be solely responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments (except taxes on our net income) now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority (collectively, “Taxes”) associated with your use of the dApp (including, without limitation, any Taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership, transfer, or breeding of any of your CryptoHorse's or Jockeys or CryptoHorseShoe’s or CryptoSaddles ).

E. A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of the CryptoHorse ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of CryptoHorse or CryptoJockeys or CryptoHorseShoes or CryptoHorseSaddle.
F. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the CryptoHorse ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of CryptoHorse or CryptoJockeys or CryptoHorseShoes or CryptoHorseSaddle.
G. Upgrades by Ethereum to the Ethereum platform, a hard fork in the Ethereum platform, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Ethereum platform may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the ERC - 721 Standard, including the CryptoHorse ecosystem.
