- Purchase, Sale and Trade of NFTs and associated Tangible Products
- NFT Transactions. The Rialto NFT Marketplace allows you to sell, purchase, collect and showcase NFTs on the Zilliqa blockchain network together with tangible products associated with the NFTs (“Tangible Products”). Such transactions will be governed by, and conducted in accordance with, these Terms.
- Transaction Format. Transactions may occur in one of two formats: (a) a Fixed Price Sale; or (b) an Auction, each as described and defined below:
- Fixed Price Sales. You may enter into a fixed price sale transaction whereby the Seller of the NFT and any associated Tangible Products shall list such NFT and any associated Tangible Products for sale on the Rialto NFT Marketplace at a fixed sale price and the Purchaser may enter into a legally binding agreement to purchase such NFT and any associated Tangible Products by committing to buy the NFT and any associated Tangible Products at the specified sale price, which offer from the Purchaser to buy the NFT and any associated Tangible Products is accepted by the Seller (a “Fixed Price Sale”).
- Auctions. You may enter into an auction transaction whereby the Seller of the NFT and any associated Tangible Products shall list such NFT for sale on the Rialto NFT Marketplace via an auction process as described in Section 5.4 (an “Auction” and, together with a Fixed Price Sale, each a “Sale”).
In connection with a Sale of an NFT and any associated Tangible Products, whether by Fixed Price Sale or Auction, the Seller may set (a) the price of the NFT and any associated Tangible Products in any amount in United States Dollars (USD), ZIL tokens or any other currencies (whether fiat currency or cryptocurrency) as available on the Rialto NFT Marketplace and (b) the number of days for which the Fixed Price Sale offer or the Auction for the NFT and any associated Tangible Products will remain open (the “Sales Period”). In the event that there is no successful Purchaser of the NFT and any associated Tangible Products within the Sales Period set by the Seller, the NFT and any associated Tangible Products will remain unsold and the Sale will be closed at the time set by the Seller on the last day of the Sales Period.
- Listing. In the event that you list an NFT and any associated Tangible Products in a Sale on the Rialto NFT Marketplace, you acknowledge and agree that:
- you must only list an NFT and any associated Tangible Products that you Own;
- your listing must be accurate, current, complete and include all the relevant information on the relevant NFT and any associated Tangible Products;
- your listing must not be misleading (including through the omission of any material information with respect to the NFT and any associated Tangible Products listed for Sale); and
- you acknowledge and accept that any sale of such NFT and any associated Tangible Products will be final and that you will not be able to cancel the same or retain ownership in such NFT and any associated Tangible Products following the completion of the Sale transaction with respect to the relevant NFT and any associated Tangible Products.
We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to amend any listing to supplement, remove, or correct information that may be inaccurate or materially misleading.
- Auction Terms. Once initiated, an Auction will last for the entirety of the Sales Period, and the Auction cannot be stopped, amended, modified, cancelled or undone upon the commencement of the Sales Period. The Seller also may set a starting price at which bidding shall commence. Provided that such starting price is met by a bidder, the relevant NFT and any associated Tangible Products will be sold to the highest successful bidder upon the conclusion of the Sales Period. If no starting price is set by the Seller, then the NFT and any associated Tangible Products will be sold to the highest bidder upon the conclusion of the Sales Period no matter what the bid is. Bids placed during an Auction are irrevocable and conditional upon a bidder maintaining a successful Account.
Auction participants are generally forbidden from engaging in any deceptive conduct that may prevent competitive or fair bidding, artificially inflate or deflate the price of an NFT and any associated Tangible Products, simulate demand for an NFT and any associated Tangible Products (i.e., "wash trading"), or any other anticompetitive bidding conduct, including but not limited to “puffing”, “chill bidding”, “shill bidding”, “sham bidding”, or “sock puppet bidding”. Sellers are expressly forbidden from bidding or purchasing their own NFTs and any associated Tangible Products that have been listed in an Auction, especially for the purpose of artificially influencing the price of such NFT and any associated Tangible Products.
You acknowledge and agree to assume the risk of initiating or participating in an Auction and take full responsibility and liability for the outcome of any Auction that you participate in. We shall not be liable to you or any third-party for the outcome of any Auction.
In either case, we have no control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any payments or transactions. We have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any payments or transactions that you engage in via the Rialto NFT Marketplace, or any other payment or transactions that you conduct via the Zilliqa blockchain network.
- Transaction Fees. Every transaction on the Rialto NFT Marketplace requires the payment of a transaction fee (each, a “Transaction Fee”). Except as otherwise expressly stated in these Terms, you will be solely responsible to pay any Transaction Fee for any transaction entered into via the Rialto NFT Marketplace.
- Delivery of Tangible Products.

The Seller shall also be responsible for making payment of the costs for delivery, though such costs may be recovered from the Purchaser if agreed between the Seller and Purchaser. You acknowledge and agree Zilliqa has no liability in respect of the delivery of Tangible Products nor for the costs for such delivery.

- Value and Volatility. You understand and agree that your access to, and use of, the Rialto NFT Marketplace is subject to certain risks including without limitation:
- The price and liquidity of collectible blockchain assets, including the NFTs, are extremely volatile and subjective and may be subject to fluctuations;
- Collectible blockchain assets, including the NFTs, have no inherent or intrinsic value;
- Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your NFTs, which may also be subject to significant price volatility;
- NFTs are not legal tender and are not backed by any government;
- Transactions involving NFTs may be irreversible, and losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable, including accidental transactions whereby you provide wrong wallet addresses;
- The value of collectibles, including the NFTs, is inherently subjective, and factors occurring outside the Rialto NFT Marketplace ecosystem may materially impact the value and desirability of any particular NFT;
- The value of NFTs may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency or digital assets for NFTs, and therefore the value of NFTs is subject to the potential for permanent or total loss of value should the market for NFTs disappear; and
- NFTs are subject to the risk of fraud, counterfeiting, cyberattacks and other technological difficulties which may prevent access to or use of your NFTs.
- Cryptocurrency Risks. There are risks associated with using a cryptocurrency, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorised access to information stored with your electronic wallet. You acknowledge and accept that we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Rialto NFT Marketplace, the NFTs or the Zilliqa blockchain network, howsoever caused.
- Regulatory Uncertainty. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Rialto NFT Marketplace, and by extension, the use, transfer, value and potential utility of your NFTs.
- Payment Services Provider Risks. The Rialto NFT Marketplace and the Services offered thereunder will rely on third-party platforms such as ZilPay (https://zilpay.io/) and Transak (https://transak.com/) to perform the transactions for the purchase and sale of NFTs. If (a) we cease to continue any relationship with such platform providers; (b) the terms and conditions or pricing of such platform providers change; (c) we violate or cannot comply with the terms and conditions of such platforms; or (d) any of such platforms loses market share or falls out of favour or is unavailable for a prolonged period of time, access to and use of the Rialto NFT Marketplace may suffer.
- Your Own Risk. You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining the nature, potential value, suitability and appropriateness of these risks for yourself. Zilliqa does not give any advice or recommendations regarding the NFTs. You understand and agree that you access and use the Rialto NFT Marketplace at your own risk. You understand and agree that Zilliqa will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, or distortions you may experience when using the NFTs or the Rialto NFT Marketplace.
