GHcoin (GHX) and GHFarm Contract Terms

  1. GHCloud is a decentralized and cloud based service. It is your responsibility to backup, store, or destroy your wallet and private keys. GetHashing has no ability to recover your account and holds no liability to these accounts nor does GetHashing any kind of control over user GHcloud account, user wallets, private keys or the balance associated with those wallets.
  2. GHcoin (GHX) are smart asset mining shares based on the open assets protocol, stored on the block chain. These can be freely traded or moved to any color aware wallet (incuding GHcloud, Coinprism, Armory and Trezor). GetHashing holds no liability to these coins misuse or accidental destruction.
  3. GHX are always backed by hardware. At no time may there be more GHX shares in circulation than backed by physical hardware as part of GetHashings’s proof-of-everything concept.
  4. In the event of a user destroying GHX mining shares by accident GH may replace those shares. A standard administration fee of $5 will be charged to the user for re-issuing shares. GetHashing may at their own discretion replace shares for a lower fee on a case by case basis*.

* For example, if the destroyed shares are worth less than the standard fee charged for re-issuing shares. The minimum fee to re-issue shares shall be no less than 0.00010600 BTC (BTC tx fee plus 600 Satoshi which contain the smart asset definition of the asset.)

Collection of Maintenance Fees

  1. GetHashing applies a fixed maintenance fee 0.0013 USD per GH/s per day from May 8, 2915. Maintenance is calculated based on the figures provided by our hosting partners and may vary over time.
  2. Maintenance fees are deducted once per day during payouts. Fees are calculated using the current bitcoin exchange rate (by default, the Coinbase sell price) at time of payment. Fees are deducted from the overall GHfarm revenue by GetHashing.
  3. GetHashing reserves the right to make adjustments to the maintenance fees based on operational factors. Except in dire cases, GetHashing will announce any changes to these fees at least one week in advance of them taking effect.

GHfarm Downtime

  1. GetHashing ensures a 99% uptime over the year. Down-times shall be not compensated unless the occurred down-times exceed the monthly average or at the sole discretion of GetHashing and our representatives.

Hardware Redemption

  1. If due to falling bitcoin exchange rate or increase in mining difficulty, the maintenance fee is greater than 90% of mining revenue, GetHashing will enter a “redemption waiting period”.
  2. As we do our best to keep GHfarm profitable, during this waiting period, revenues will be paid out according to the daily average of the farm.
  3. If owing to a rising exchange rate, the ratio of electricity fees to payout is lower than 90% for a period of ten continuous days, then mining will revert back to normal operations.
  4. During this waiting period, if maintenance fees are greater than revenues for a sustained period of ten continuous days, GetHashing reserves the right to retire the machines. When machines are retired mining shares will then enter into the “hardware redemption period”.
  5. Prior to a machine entering into this hardware redemption period, GetHashing will not accept any requests for hardware redemption.
  6. During the hardware redemption period, users are given a period of fifteen days during which requests for hardware redemption must be made.
  7. Customers owning enough GH/s to constitute an entire machine of the associated type (e.g., 1155 GH/s of Antminer S5) are eligible to convert that amount of GH/s into the used unit of the associated type. If a user does not have enough GH/s of the associated kind to exchange for actual hardware, then this user is not eligible for hardware redemption.
  8. Users residing in China will be required to pay a handling fee and the cost of domestic shipping. Users residing outside of China will be required to pay a handling fee, the cost of domestic shipping to a port, and the international shipping fee.
  9. Handling fees are set at $50 USD, and domestic Chinese shipping (including to the export) and international shipping fees will be collected according to the actual charge.
  10. Upon entering the redemption phase GetHashing will request users to transfer their GHX mining shares to GetHashing for escrow. During escrow users will continue to receive their daily share of the farm revenue until the redeemed machines are decommissioned and shipped to the customer. Upon shipping the customers GHX shares shall be destroyed by GetHashing.

GHX Contract End - End of Life

  1. GetHashing GHcoin (GHX) smart asset mining shares are terminated upon miner redemption or after the redemption period ends, whichever comes first. GetHashing does not accept responsibility for hardware warranties, hardware support, shipping risks, etc.
  2. Because redeemed hardware is, by nature, secondhand, GetHashing cannot guarantee the quality or remaining life of a machine. Used units may not hash as efficiently as when they were new. GetHashing cannot guarantee that every redeemed machine will operate as though it were new.
  3. If mining farms may no longer continue operating due to change in legal status, war, earthquake, fire, electricity failure, or other acts of God, GetHashing does not assume responsibility for compensation.
