These Yield Account Terms and Conditions (“Yield Account Terms”) are subject to, and made a part of the Vibrant User Agreement (“Agreement”), and apply to your access to, and use of, the Vibrant yield account service (the “Yield Service”), which is part of the Vibrant Services. Any capitalized but undefined terms in these Yield Account Terms will have the meanings set forth in the Agreement. If you open a Yield Service account (“Yield Account”), you will be able to transfer USDC into your Yield Account within your Vibrant Wallet and earn yield paid in the form of USDC on the USDC held in your Yield Account. The Yield Service, and the Yield Accounts, are operated by Sunship, Inc. By opening a Yield Account, you agree that you have read, understood, and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in these Yield Account Terms and the Agreement.
1. Registration of Yield Account
To be eligible to open a Yield Account you must be a citizen or legal permanent resident of Argentina, permanently residing in Argentina and not a “US Person” as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Any such eligible person who has a registered Vibrant Account can apply to open a Yield Account. By opening a Yield Account, you agree and represent that you will use your Yield Account only for yourself, and not on behalf of any third party. You are wholly responsible for all activity that occurs under your Yield Account. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse your request to open a Yield Account, limit the number of accounts that you may hold, or suspend or terminate your Yield Account.
2. Identity Verification
3. Funding Your Yield Account
You may fund your Yield Account by transferring USDC from your standard Vibrant balance (“Basic Account”) into your Yield Account. If you do not have a Basic Account balance you can add ARST to the app in the usual way then convert ARST to USDC and transfer it to the Yield Account. As a reminder, adding ARST to Vibrant via our local partner usually takes a few hours but can take up to one day or more. Once your ARST is added to the app, you can buy USDC abd then transfer it to the Yield Account and your USDC will be eligible to start earning yield. You will be able to transfer USDC into or out of the Yield Account at any time via the home screen in the app.
Currently the maximum amount able to be transferred into the Yield Account is USDC100,000. We currently do not impose a minimum balance requirement on Yield Accounts. With respect to both minimum and maximum balances we reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to institute, remove, increase or decrease any such thresholds on your Yield Account in the future.
Stellar Network USDC is the only digital asset that is eligible to earn yield in the Yield Account at this time and we will only provide yield on Stellar Network USDC.
4. Ownership of Digital Assets
You hereby represent and warrant to us at all times during which you hold USDC in your Vibrant Wallet that: (i) all such USDC is owned by you; and (ii) you are validly authorized to carry out transactions using such USDC, and that all transactions initiated with your Yield Account are for your own account and not on behalf of any other person or entity.
5. Yield Payments
The rate of yield payable on the Yield Account is variable. We publish the current yield rates for Yield Accounts within the app, specifically, on the home screen and within the transfer flow whenever you want to add more USDC to your Yield Account. We reserve the right to change the applicable yield rate at any time and will notify you via the app or other reasonable means of notice. All yield payments will be paid in Stellar USDC.
We use the daily balance method to calculate the yield payable to your account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the lowest balance of the Yield Account for each day (Argentina Standard Time). The daily periodic rate is calculated using the periodic compounding interest rate formula for 365 days and rounded down to the second decimal place.
Yield amounts will be calculated to accrue and compound daily as described above and will be reflected in the balance of your Yield Account. However, we will only disburse the yields to you when you make a transfer of your USDC out of the Yield Account that is greater than the principal deposited. For example, if you transfer 200 USDC into your Yield Account and earn 5 USDC in yield, when you initiate a withdrawal from your Yield Account for an amount more than 200 USDC, say in this case 203 USDC, then both the 200 USDC principal, and 3 USDC of yield, will be disbursed to your Basic Account based on your withdrawal instructions.
In order to withdraw USDC from your Yield Account, you simply initiate a transfer of the desired amount of USDC from your Yield Account to your Basic Account. From there you may either send the USDC to another digital wallet or sell the USDC for ARST and withdraw this value via Stablex to your bank account in Pesos.
Vibrant is not responsible for determining the withholding, sales, use, value added, transfer or other taxes, together with any interest and penalties imposed with respect thereto (“Taxes”), that apply to your transactions. By agreeing to these Yield Account Terms, you certify that you are not a “U.S. person” for U.S. federal income tax purposes. You agree that you are solely responsible for determining what, if any, Taxes apply to your transactions and to withhold, collect, report and remit the correct amounts of Taxes to the appropriate taxing authorities. Any yield payments made to you shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as may be reasonably determined by Vibrant under applicable law.
8. Suspension or Termination of Services
The Yield Service is currently available only as a pre-release beta product and certain Yield Service features and functionality may be limited or unavailable to you. We reserve the right to change, suspend, remove, disable or impose access restrictions or limits on the Yield Service at any time, in our sole and absolute discretion.
Cyber-attacks, including malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing, and other operational or technical difficulties could result in the immediate halt of transfers and withdrawals of USDC either temporarily or permanently. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY SORT INCURRED BY YOU AS A RESULT OF SUCH CYBER-ATTACKS, OPERATIONAL OR TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES OR SUSPENSIONS OF TRANSFERS OR WITHDRAWALS.
9. Account Non-Transferable
Your Yield Account is not transferable or assignable to another person, in whole or in part, under any circumstances.
10. Closure of Yield Account
We have the right to cease providing the Yield Account to you or to close your Yield Account at any time for any reason without advance notice. If we cease providing you with a Yield Account or if you close your Yield Account, you will retain your principal within your Vibrant Wallet together with the accrued yield earned up to the closing date. However, if we close your Yield Account because you have breached these Yield Account Terms or the Agreement, you will not be entitled to any undisbursed yield that may have otherwise accrued to your Yield Account.
11. No Fiduciary Relationship
These Yield Account Terms and the relationship created hereby do not create a fiduciary relationship between us.
12. Risk Disclosures
Please carefully review the representations, warranties, and risks included in Section 4 of the Agreement (Representations, Warranties, and Risks). In addition to the representations, warranties, and risks set forth in Section 4 of the Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that:
Your Yield Account is not a checking or savings account, and it is not covered by insurance against losses. Your Yield Account is not registered with any governmental authority, and we make no promises that we will continue to offer Yield Accounts to you or any other user of our Services.
The regulatory status of digital assets, blockchain technology and digital asset yield products is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether governmental authorities will regulate such technologies. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any governmental authority may make changes to existing laws, regulations and/or rules that will affect such technologies. We may in the future be required to suspend, limit or terminate the Yield Service as a result of law or regulation. You are responsible for complying with all laws and regulations applicable to your use of the Yield Service.
