HLI reserves the right to request such information as is necessary to verify the identity of a User. In the event of a delay or failure by the User to produce any information required for verification purposes HLI may refuse to allow the TBILL subscription or redemption of TBILL.

2. Platform Functions

The Platform also provides the following Functions in connection with your Platform Account:
2.1 TBILL-Related Functions
The Platform allows Users to subscribe for TBILL and provides TBILL-related functions (“TBILL Functions”), which are described more fully in the TBILL Terms (as set out in Schedule 1 herein). The TBILL Terms are incorporated herein by reference.
2.2 Wallet Access
2.2.1 The Platform provides access to your external non-custodial Digital Token wallet(s) (“Wallet”). Your Wallet allows you to store, track, transfer, and manage your balances of the Digital Tokens. We do not store or hold your Wallet’s private keys, which are used to process transactions. By accessing and using the Platform, you acknowledge and agree that the private keys of your wallet are generated, stored and managed by you; you have full control and access to the Digital Tokens in your Wallet and you are solely responsible for the security of your own wallet and the assets stored within it. HLI is not responsible for any loss or damage to your assets that may occur as a result of your failure to properly secure and manage your private keys and recovery phrases or seed words.
2.2.1 You own the Digital Tokens held in your connected Wallet to the Platform Account. For so long as your Digital Tokens are stored in a non-custodial Wallet accessed via the Platform, HLI does not maintain any control over the private keys associated with the blockchain Wallet addresses holding your Digital Tokens.
2.2.2 When using the Platform, you will have access to information regarding your balances, type and amount of Digital Tokens in your Wallet, individual transactions and fees.
2.3 Digital Token Transfers
2.3.1 When you send USDC (or any supported stablecoins) to be deposited into the OE TBILL Vault from your connected whitelisted Wallet (“Inbound Transfer”), you agree that you will be solely responsible for executing the transaction properly, which may include, among other things, payment of sufficient network or miners’ fees in order for the transaction to be successful. Failure to pay such fees may cause an Inbound Transfer to remain in a pending state outside of HLI’s control and we are not responsible for delays or losses incurred as a result of an error in the initiation of the transaction and have no obligation to assist in the remediation of such transactions. By initiating an Inbound Transfer, you attest that you are transacting in the Digital Tokens which conforms to the OE TBILL Vault into which such Digital Tokens are directed. For example, if you select an Ethereum wallet address, you attest that you are initiating an Inbound Transfer of Ethereum alone. HLI incurs no obligation whatsoever with regard to any other Digital Tokens, cryptocurrencies, virtual currencies, or digital assets, sent to an incompatible Wallet. Erroneously transmitted Digital Tokens will be lost.
2.3.2 You agree, represent, and warrant that all Inbound Transfers are not the direct or indirect proceeds of any criminal or fraudulent activity.
2.3.3 When you send TBILL from your Wallet to a third party non-whitelisted or whitelisted Wallet (“Outbound Transfers” and together with Inbound Transfers, “Digital Token Transfers”), such transfers are executed by you in your sole discretion. HLI shall bear no liability or responsibility in the event you enter an incorrect blockchain destination address and we do not guarantee the identity or value received by a recipient of an Outbound Transfer. You further represent and warrant that (i) prior to any Outbound Transfers, you have an obligation to inform and have indeed informed the transferee of the terms set out herein (including the Schedules), the PPM, the Subscription Agreement and (ii) you will not make any Outbound Transfer to a Wallet owned or controlled by a person that is a resident of the United States of America or who otherwise qualifies as a “U.S. person” under Rule 902 of Regulation S.
2.3.4 Digital Token Transfers cannot be reversed once they have been broadcast to the relevant blockchain, although they may be in a pending state, and designated accordingly, while the transaction is processed by network operators. Neither HLI nor the OE TBILL Vault control any blockchain or Digital Token network and makes no guarantees that a Digital Token Transfer will be confirmed by a Digital Token network (e.g. Ethereum). 2.4 Subscribing or redeeming the TBILL from the OE TBILL Vault
2.4.3 HLI has ensured that TBILL can only be subscribed and redeemed through the Platform.
2.4.4 When you elect to subscribe (and/or redeem) a TBILL through the Platform, any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the Ethereum network and/or such other blockchain network as determined by HLI. We will have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. 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 or any other transactions that you conduct via the Ethereum network.

3. No Custody

HLI holds all Digital Tokens (other than TBILL), through the OE TBILL Vault. HLI is regulated in the BVI jurisdiction as a recognised professional fund under the British Virgin Islands Securities and Investment Business Act 2010. The Digital Tokens (i.e. USDC and any supported stablecoins), are held in the OE TBILL Vault owned by HLI and operated by OpenEden Labs Pte. Ltd. (“OpenEden”). We are not a trust company nor do we have a licence to provide any custody service. Accordingly, we are not providing any regulated services to Users. Additionally, for the avoidance of doubt, HLI is not a fiduciary, and HLI does not provide any trust or fiduciary services to any User in the course of such User visiting, accessing, or using the Platform and/or Functions.

4. Asset Ownership

4.1 The title to all of your Digital Tokens will remain with you at all times. As the beneficial owner of Digital Tokens in your Wallet, you shall solely bear the risk of loss of such Digital Tokens. HLI has no liability for any Digital Tokens fluctuations in value. Except as may be otherwise agreed in writing between you and HLI, none of the Digital Tokens in your Wallet are the property of, or shall or may be loaned to, HLI. Except as required by a facially valid court order, or except as provided for herein, HLI will not sell, transfer, loan, or otherwise alienate Digital Tokens in your Wallet unless specifically instructed by you in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

5. No Investment Advice

HLI does not provide investment, tax, or legal advice, nor does HLI broker trades on your behalf. You should consult your legal or tax professional regarding your specific situation. HLI may provide educational information about Digital Tokens, as well as other Digital Tokens not supported by HLI. Information may include, but is not limited to, blog posts, articles, links to third- party content, news feeds, tutorials, and videos. The information provided on the Platform or any third-party sites does not constitute investment advice, financial advice, trading advice, or any other sort of advice, and you should not treat any of the Platform's content as such.

6. Privacy

We are committed to protecting your personal information and helping you understand exactly how your personal information is being used. You should carefully read the HLI Privacy Policy as it provides details on how your personal information is collected, stored, protected, and used.

7.1 By entering into this Agreement, you agree to receive electronic communications and notifications in accordance with our E-Sign Consent Policy.
7.2 This Agreement is provided to you and communicated in English. We will also communicate with you in English for all matters related to TBILL and your use of the Functions and/or TBILL Functions. Where we have provided you with a translation of the English language version of this Agreement or any information related to your Platform Account, you acknowledge and agree that such translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language version of the Agreement will govern your use of the Functions and/or use of TBILL, and the TBILL Functions (as applicable).

8.1 You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of all account names, User IDs, passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs) and other access codes that you use to access the Functions. You are responsible for keeping your email address and all other account holder and User information up to date in your Platform Account profile and for maintaining the confidentiality of your User information. You agree to (i) notify HLI immediately if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Platform Account, the Functions, or any other breach of security regarding the Functions, your Platform Account or the Platform. We strongly advise you to enable all security features that are available to you (such as, by way of example two-factor authentication); this offers you enhanced protection from possible malicious attacks. HLI will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your account information.
8.2 We shall not bear any liability for any damage or interruptions caused by any computer viruses, spyware, or other malware that may affect your computer or other equipment, or any phishing, spoofing, or other attack. We recommend the regular use of a reliable virus and malware screening and prevention software. If you question the authenticity of a communication purporting to be from HLI, you should login to your Platform Account directly through the Platform or related mobile application, if any, and not by clicking links contained in emails.

9. Account Suspension & Closure

9.1 We may, without liability to you or any third party, suspend your Platform Account, consolidate your Platform Accounts if you have more than one, or terminate your Platform Account or suspend your use of one or more of the Functions in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, as determined in our sole and absolute discretion. Such actions may be taken as a result of account inactivity, failure to respond to customer support requests, failure to positively identify you, a court order, your violation of the terms of this Agreement or for other similar reasons. HLI may also temporarily suspend access to your Platform Account in the event that a technical problem causes system outage or Platform Account errors until the problem is resolved. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event your Platform Account is suspended or closed, you will no longer be able to access any of the Functions.
9.2 You may terminate this Agreement at any time by closing your Platform Account in accordance with this Agreement. In order to do so, you should contact OpenEden’s “Support Team” who will assist you in closing your Platform Account. You may not terminate your Platform Account if HLI believes, in its sole discretion, that such closure is being performed in an effort to evade a court order or legal or regulatory investigation or to avoid paying any amounts otherwise due to HLI.
9.3 We encourage you to redeem your TBILL for USDC (or any supported stablecoins) prior to issuing a request to terminate your Platform Account. We may be unable to terminate your Platform Account at your request if you maintain a balance in your Platform Account. We reserve the right to restrict or refuse to permit redemptions or transfers from your Platform Account if (i) your Platform Account has otherwise been suspended or unilaterally terminated by HLI in accordance with this Agreement or (ii) to do so would be prohibited by law or a court order or we have determined that any of the related Digital Token were obtained fraudulently.
9.4 Upon closure or suspension of your Platform Account, you authorise HLI to cancel or suspend pending transactions and forfeit all proprietary rights and claims against HLI in relation to any TBILL otherwise eligible for redemption.
9.5 In the event that you or HLI terminates this Agreement or your access to the Functions, or cancels your Platform Account, you remain liable for all activity conducted on or with your Platform Account while it was active and for all amounts due hereunder.

10. Fees

10.1 HLI and/or its service providers may charge fees in connection with the Platform and/or Functions as may be set out in this Agreement, the PPM and the Subscription Agreement ("Fees"). You agree to pay the fees shown to you, if any, or as separately agreed between you and HLI or its service providers, when you enter into a transaction. We may change any of the fees that HLI or its service providers charges at any time, with or without notice.
10.2 The Fees are used to cover the operational costs of maintaining the OE TBILL Vault operations incurred across on-chain and off-chain venues, such as bank charges.
10.3 The Fees are collected by OpenEden for managing the OE TBILL Vault. OpenEden will manage the OE TBILL Vault for and on behalf of HLI (as the technical service provider). Adam Eve Capital Pte. Ltd., being the investment manager of OE Cayman Limited, covers responsibilities such as maintaining the weighted average to maturity of the portfolio i.e. keeping track of the maturity dates of the T-Bills, rolling over matured T-Bills into new ones and compounding earned returns, maintaining the target utilisation rate and on-chain TBILL reserve ratio.
10.4 The applicable Digital Token network (i.e. Ethereum) or supported bridge may charge a fee in connection with blockchain transactions. You are responsible for all such fees. 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.
10.5 You are responsible for, and agree to pay, all fees that may be charged by HLI in connection with sending Digital Tokens to the OE TBILL Vault or receiving Digital Tokens from OE TBILL Vault. HLI is not responsible for any charges that you incur based on delayed processing of deposits or withdrawals (if any).

11. TBILL-Specific Terms

To the extent that you utilize your Platform Account for any transaction or service involving the Digital Tokens and OE TBILL Vault, the TBILL Terms (as set out in Schedule 1 herein) shall apply to all such transactions and such agreement.

12. Mobile Functions

To the extent you access the Platform and any of the Functions through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier’s standard charges, data rates, and other fees may apply. We are not responsible for any charges you incur from your mobile carrier as a result of use of the Platform. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain mobile applications may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Functions may work with all carriers or devices. You hereby confirm that with respect to any mobile phone number provided, you own the account corresponding to that mobile phone number or otherwise have the account holder’s permissions to use this service. By registering a mobile phone number you are agreeing to the specific terms set forth in this Section.

13. Transaction Limits

HLI reserves the right to change the deposit, withdrawal, storage, transfer, and velocity limits on the OE TBILL Vault as we deem necessary. We may establish individual or aggregate transaction limits on the size or number of deposits, withdrawals, transfers or other transactions that you initiate using your Wallet during any specified time period.

14. Right to Change/Remove Features or Suspend/Delay Transactions

Subject to Section 10 of the TBILL Terms, we reserve the right to change, suspend, or discontinue any aspect of the Functions or the Platform at any time, including hours of operation or availability of any feature, without notice and without liability. We may, in our sole discretion, delay any transaction if we believe that such transaction is suspicious, may involve fraud or misconduct, violates applicable laws or payment network, or violates any term of this Agreement.

15. Refunds; Reversals

Once a transaction has been initiated (including, but not limited to, a Digital Token Transfer), it cannot be reversed or refunded, except as set forth in this Agreement. You may have additional refund or chargeback rights under your agreement with the recipient of such funds, your financial institution, or applicable law. You should periodically review statements from your financial institution and any other service that you use to transact Digital Tokens, which should reflect all applicable transactions made using the related transaction method. You can also access the record of transactions on the Platform, in your Platform Account by logging into your Platform Account.

16. Blocked Addresses & Forfeited Assets

HLI reserves the right to “block” certain Digital Token addresses that it determines, in its sole discretion, are associated with illegal activity or activity that otherwise violates the Terms or applicable laws (“Blocked Addresses”). In the event that you send Digital Tokens to a Blocked Address, or receive Tokens from a Blocked Address, HLI may freeze such Digital Tokens and take steps to terminate your user account. In certain circumstances, HLI may deem it necessary to report such suspected illegal activity to applicable law enforcement agencies and you may forfeit any rights associated with your Digital Tokens. HLI may also be forced to freeze and potentially surrender the Tokens in the event it receives a legal order from a valid government authority requiring it to do so.

17. Taxes

HLI will maintain a record of your transaction history, which you will be able to access through your Platform Account for purposes of making any required tax filings or payments, but it is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments you make or receive, and to collect, report, and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. This transaction history will include all transactions you complete with HLI in relation to the OE TBILL Vault including subscribing for TBILL by depositing USDC (or any supported stablecoins), redeeming TBILL for USDC (or any supported stablecoins) only, and shall exclude any transfers of TBILL (to other whitelisted Wallet addresses). HLI will make any tax withholdings or filings that we are required by law to make, but HLI is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transaction, or for collecting, reporting, or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction.

18. Indemnification; Release

18.1 You agree to hold harmless and indemnify HLI and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, advertisers, licensors, suppliers, service provider such as HLI or partners from and against any claims, liabilities, losses, damages (actual and consequential) of any kind or nature, suit, judgment, litigation cost, and reasonable attorneys' fees arising out of or in any way related to (i) your breach of this Agreement (and its Schedules), (ii) your misuse of the Platform, or (iii) your violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations in connection with your access to or use of the Platform, and your holding or use of TBILL.
18.2 For the purpose of this Section, the term “losses” means all net costs incurred by us or the other persons referred to in this Section which are the result of the matters set out in this Section and which may relate to any claims, demands, causes of action, debt, cost, expense or other liability, including reasonable legal fees (without duplication).
18.3 If you have a dispute with one or more Users or third parties, you unconditionally and irrevocably release HLI (and its affiliates and service providers, and each of their officers, directors, agents, joint ventures, employees and representatives) from all claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

19. Limitation of Liability; No Warranty

19.1 You expressly understand and agree that HLI and our affiliates and service providers, and their respective officers, directors, agents, joint venturers, employees, and representatives will not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary damages, or damages for loss of profits including but not limited to, damages for loss of goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (even if HLI has been advised of the possibility of such damages), whether based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or otherwise, resulting from: (i) the use or the inability to use the functions, to hold or use TBILL; (ii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information, or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through or from the functions and transaction(s) entered into involving TBILL; (iii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; or (iv) any other matter relating to the services and/or functions involving TBILL.
19.2 Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. accordingly, some of the limitations set forth above may not apply to you. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the functions or with this agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue use of the functions and terminate your account.
19.3 The functions are provided "as is" and without any representation or warranty, whether express, implied or statutory. HLI, our affiliates, and our respective officers, directors, agents, joint venturers, employees, and suppliers specifically disclaim any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement. HLI makes no warranty that (i) the functions will meet your requirements, (ii) the functions will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free, or (iii) the quality of any products, functions, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations.
19.4 HLI will make reasonable efforts to ensure that requests for Platform Account transactions executed through your Wallet are processed in a timely manner, but HLI makes no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing because the Functions are dependent upon many factors outside of our control. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, so the foregoing disclaimers may not apply to you. This Section gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights that vary in your applicable country.

20. Unauthorized and Incorrect Transactions

20.1 When any transaction occurs using your credentials (including, but not limited to, Digital Token Transactions), we will assume that you authorized such transaction and HLI shall not be obligated to verify any such transaction and HLI bears no liability for any losses suffered by you pursuant to transactions that was not authorized by you.
20.2 If an Error (as defined below) occurs through your Platform Account, and you follow the procedures set forth in this Section, HLI may reimburse you for the amount of any eligible Unauthorized Digital Token Transaction and any losses resulting from an Error.
20.3 For purposes of this Section, an “Error” means one of the following: (i) if your Wallet is charged for the subscription of TBILL, HLI receives the relevant Digital Tokens, but the corresponding TBILL does not show up in your Wallet through the Platform Account, (ii) if you complete a redemption of TBILL for Digital Tokens and the Digital Tokens are not properly delivered by HLI to your Wallet, (iii) if you receive a Digital Token from us to your Wallet and we do not add the proper amount to your Wallet, (iv) if the transaction records in your Platform Account and/or Wallet do not accurately reflect your transactions, or (v) there is some other material mathematical or computational error by HLI in calculating issuance or redemption amounts.
20.4 You should notify us immediately if you believe that (i) an Error has occurred, or (ii) you believe there is an Error in your transaction records or account history, or you have a question regarding your transaction records or account history.
20.5 In order for Errors to be potentially covered by HLI, you must notify us within sixty (60) days of such Error showing up in your transaction history and/or account statement. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days, then you will not be covered by the protections of this Section.
20.6 The fastest and most efficient way to notify us of an Error is to contact OpenEden’s Support Team via email at [email protected].
20.7 However you choose to notify us, you must include:
  • the name and email associated with your Platform Account;
  • the Wallet blockchain address;
  • a detailed description of what Error you believe occurred, or what information you need in order to determine if an Error occurred; and
  • the amount of such Error.
20.8 Note that in connection with investigating and/or resolving any Error, we may need to request further information from you regarding the circumstances of the Error. If you do not provide such additional information, it may inhibit our ability to resolve your issue or limit your rights under this Section.
20.9 Once you have provided us with proper notification (including delivering all of the information set forth in the subsection above and responding to any requests for further information), we will investigate the potential Error. We will typically be able to complete our investigation within ten (10) days, but may require up to thirty (30) days if your Platform Account is new (meaning your Platform Account has been active for less than thirty (30) days at the time we receive your notification).
20.10 Sometimes, we may need more time in order to complete our investigation (up to thirty (30) days, or sixty (60) days for a new account).
20.11 Once we have completed our investigation, we will notify you of our decision within three (3) business days. If we determine that your claim of an Error is valid and eligible, we may credit your connected Wallet of an amount equivalent to the Error.
20.12 Regardless of the results of our investigation, we will send you an email explaining the basis for our decision. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our decision, you can request further information regarding the details that led to our decision.

By subscribing for TBILL, you understand and expressly agree to these TBILL Terms, the PPM and you acknowledge that you have reviewed and understand each of these documents and the disclosures set out therein.

36.1 About the TBILL and the OE TBILL Vault
36.1.1 TBILL is a digital token issued by Hill Lights International Limited (“HLI”) that operates on the Ethereum blockchain and is compliant with the EIP-20 standard. TBILL represents the balance of (a) USD Coin (“USDC”) (or any supported stablecoins) as supplied by the Users and US Dollars (“USD”), both held in the OE TBILL Vault, and (b) US Treasury Bills (“T-Bills”) that is purchased by OE Cayman Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of HLI, using the Digital Tokens deposited by the Users which are held in custody in a brokerage account (“Brokerage Account”) (as HLI may appoint from time to time), as regulated by multiple financial regulatory bodies (“Assets”). The USD in the OE TBILL Vault will mainly transit between on and off ramps service providers, banking partners and the Brokerage Account.
36.1.2 The TBILL is fully backed and collaterised by the Assets. The dollar value of the TBILL is directly tied to the value of combination of Assets. In addition, the daily exchange rate of the TBILL may be determined by the financial data obtained from the Assets. The OE TBILL Vault will also generate daily Net Asset Value (NAV) reports from the Brokerage Account, which will be available for viewing on the Platform. The OE TBILL Vault is regularly audited by a partner audit firm, TJ Assurance Partners PAC, to provide additional transparency and assurance to the Users. The OE TBILL Vault is also integrated with Chainlink, a blockchain oracle provider, to enable real-time Proof of Reserves for your digital assets (including the Digital Tokens).
36.1.3 To subscribe for the TBILL, the User i.e. prospective investor must deposit a minimum of USD 100,000 (in its equivalent USDC form or any equivalent supported stablecoins) into the OE TBILL Vault from their connected Wallet. Upon deposit, the User will receive TBILL in return with a value equivalent to the deposited USDC (or any supported stablecoins). The number of TBILL received is based on the prevailing TBILL to USD exchange rate at the time of deposit. This TBILL to USD exchange rate will be used to calculate the corresponding value of USDC to determine the amount of USD to be deposited into the OE TBILL Vault. The TBILL is redeemable in accordance with the terms of the PPM and the redemption amount is calculated in accordance with the redemption provisions in the PPM. The subscribed TBILL will be held in the User’s own whitelisted digital token Wallet, as pre-approved and screened by HLI. At present, notwithstanding the TBILL as issued pursuant to this Agreement can only be subscribed and redeemed via the OE TBILL Vault, the TBILL is freely tradeable and/or transferable among Users and third parties i.e. non-Users alike, subject to the provisions and restrictions set out in the PPM. For the avoidance of doubt, other than the OE TBILL Vault, the TBILL may be listed on the public market via secondary platforms (as elaborated in Paragraph 2.4 below) for the sale and/or purchase of the TBILL.
36.1.4 The non-User may redeem the TBILL pursuant to Paragraph 2.3 below and subject to the whitelisting of their Wallets by HLI, in accordance with the Paragraph 1.8 (Identity Verification) of the User Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, only Users shall be entitled to enforce any rights pursuant to the User Agreement (together with its schedules).
36.2 Scope of TBILL and OE TBILL Vault
36.2.1 As you have agreed to, and are subject to this Agreement, HLI makes available the following TBILL-related functions: (i) issue TBILL for USDC (or any supported stablecoins) from HLI, (ii) redeem TBILL for USDC (or any supported stablecoins) from HLI, and (iii) send and receive TBILL to and/or from Platform Accounts via the OE TBILL Vault (collectively, the “TBILL Functions”). Your use of the TBILL Functions is subject to these TBILL Terms. Any of the TBILL Functions can be discontinued at any time in accordance with Section 10 of these TBILL Terms.
36.2.2 As set out in the above paragraph 1.3, to subscribe for the TBILL using USDC (or any supported stablecoins), the User must deposit a minimum of USD 100,000 in the form of USDC (or any supported stablecoins) into the OE TBILL Vault. In return, the User will receive TBILL that are of an equivalent USDC (or any supported stablecoins) value at the time of deposit, net of any applicable fees as set out in the PPM. The number of TBILL that Users will receive is determined by the prevailing TBILL to USDC (or any supported stablecoins) exchange rate at the time of deposit and the amount of USDC (or any supported stablecoins) deposited. The minimum deposit amount per transaction is 100,000 USDC (or the equivalent amount in any supported stablecoins).
36.2.3 The TBILL can be redeemed for USDC (or any supported stablecoins) at any time by Users only. Users who hold TBILL have the option to exchange them back for USDC (or any supported stablecoins) by using the Platform. The process of redeeming TBILL is initiated by the User through a withdrawal request on the Platform. Redemption for USDC (or any supported stablecoins) will be processed if there is sufficient liquidity of USDC in the OE TBILL Vault to meet such redemption. Otherwise, such redemption requests will be placed on queue and the redemption will be processed upon sufficient liquidity of USDC (or any supported stablecoins) in the OE TBILL Vault. Once the redemption is complete, the TBILL will be "burnt" i.e. permanently removed from circulation. The amount of USDC (or any supported stablecoins) that the User will receive is determined by the prevailing exchange rate between TBILL and USDC at the time of the withdrawal. This exchange rate is determined by the value of assets held by the OE TBILL Vault, which is used as the basis for calculating the daily TBILL exchange rate.
36.2.4 Currently, the TBILL can only be subscribed and redeemed through the OE TBILL Vault. The TBILL can be transferred between whitelisted Wallet addresses with registered Platform Accounts, and can also be traded or transferred to other external third party wallets (i.e non-whitelisted Wallets), platforms, or decentralized applications (DApps), subject to the terms of the PPM. You further represent and warrant that prior to any Outbound Transfers, you have an obligation to inform and have indeed informed the transferee of the terms set out herein (including the Schedules) and the PPM. HLI reserves the right to provide for the future transferability of the TBILL on any third party platforms (e.g. centralized and/or decentralized exchanges (CEXs and/or DEXs), peer-to-peer (p2p) platforms, token swap platforms).
36.3 Applicable Laws and Regulations

36.4.6 Use of certain TBILL Functions in a Platform Account may have further eligibility requirements that will need to be verified prior to you using such TBILL Functions, or from time to time in order to continue your use of the TBILL Functions, and may be subject to additional terms and conditions.
36.5 AML and CTF Compliance
36.5.1 Our AML and CTF procedures are guided by all applicable laws and regulations regarding AML and CTF. These standards are designed to prevent the use of the TBILL Functions for money laundering or terrorist financing activities.

36.6 TBILL Supported Blockchains and Smart Contract Modifications
36.6.1 TBILL operates on TBILL Supported Blockchains. HLI does not have any ability or obligation to prevent or mitigate attacks or resolve any other issues that might arise with any TBILL Supported Blockchain. Any such attacks or delays on any TBILL Supported Blockchain might materially delay or prevent you from sending or receiving TBILL, and HLI shall bear no responsibility for any losses that result from such issues.
36.6.2 Note that in certain circumstances, including, but not limited to, a copy or fork of an TBILL Supported Blockchain or the identification of a security issue with a TBILL Supported Blockchain, HLI may be forced to suspend all activities relating to TBILL (including redeeming TBILL for USDC, or sending and receiving TBILL) for an extended period of time until such Downtime is over and TBILL Functions can be restored. This Downtime will likely occur immediately upon a copy or fork of any TBILL Supported Blockchain, potentially with little to no warning, and during this period of Downtime you will not be able to conduct various activities involving TBILL.
36.6.3 HLI reserves the right to migrate TBILL to another blockchain or protocol in the future in its reasonable discretion. Upon HLI’s request, you agree to take any and all actions reasonably necessary to effectuate the migration of your TBILL to another blockchain or protocol identified by HLI. If you fail to effectuate such migration, the TBILL may not be compatible with your Platform Account going forward. HLI will not be responsible or liable for any damages, losses, costs, fines, penalties or expenses of whatever nature, whether or not reasonably foreseeable by the parties, which you may suffer, sustain or incur, arising out of or relating to your failure to effectuate such migration of your TBILL to another blockchain or protocol identified by HLI.
36.7 Transactions with Third Parties

36.7.3 HLI shall not be liable in any way for your access to and use of systems, services, content, materials, products or programmes of any third party, or for any TBILL purchases or subscription made in relation thereto, each of which shall be your responsibility or that of the relevant third party.
36.7.4 HLI is not liable for any losses or issues that may arise from such third-party transactions, including, but not limited to, failure to comply with applicable laws and regulations (including any consequences for illegal transactions that might be triggered under these TBILL Terms), the quality and delivery of such products and services, or your satisfaction with any products or services, the purchase of which is facilitated by the TBILL Functions. If you are not satisfied with any goods or services purchased from a third party using the TBILL Functions, you must handle those issues directly with the third-party seller.
36.8 Currency Conversion
HLI is not responsible for any processing delays that may result in connection with completing any currency conversion. Additionally, HLI’s banking partners may not support all non-USD currencies, and may be forced to reject or return a wire received in a non-supported currency. Note that your Platform Account only supports TBILL amounts up to six (6) decimal places, so all TBILL amounts will be rounded down to six (6) decimal places.
36.9 Right to Change/Remove Features or Suspend/Delay Transactions
