Learn How to Unify China on the Blockchain!
The BlockChina application runs on the Ethereum network and utilizes smart contracts with individual erc721 tokens (with each being known as a “Smart Contract”) to allow users to buy their Chinese province and regions Smart Contracts.
Throughout these Terms of Service, the Smart Contracts and the Site hosting the game will be known as the “Game”.
By choosing to use the Game, users can purchase and own Chinese Provinces, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan & Diaoyutai Islands Smart Contracts. BlockChina is making the Game available to you. Prior to using the Game, you must agree to these Terms of Service.

Unless we have a separate, written agreement with you that differs from the below Terms of Service, the following Terms of Service absolutely and unequivocally govern your use of the Site, purchase of Smart Contracts, and ownership of Smart Contracts. We will only allow you to use this Site, own Smart Contracts, and/or purchase Smart Contracts if you accept all of these Terms of Service.

1. WE DO NOT ACCEPT DEPOSITS
BlockChina.io is a UI interface which allows you to interact directly with a blockchain smart contract on the ethereum network using the “Metamask” browser extension. The website and it’s creators do not except or hold any payments from players. Any ether transfers done over the website’s are transferred directly to blockchain contract address: 0x219014EF0FDF1B9b0d4E9e453E021573B7082Bed Any Ether or fiat currency deposited into your metamask extension is fully owned and controlled by the player. The game does not have access to the funds deposited in your metamask browser extension. Transfers of Ether, are passed directly from your metamask account to a smart contract on the ethereum network. Since the game does not except your deposits and does not have any control over it, the game and it’s creators are not liable for any damages or lost of funds.
2. PLAY RESPONSIBLY
This game allows you to buy and collect digital assets. There is no guarantee that other players or anyone else will buy these assets from you. While some players speculate about their ability to resell their digital assets for a higher value in the future, there is no guarantee that another person will decide to buy your digital asset. If you you choose to transfer ETH in exchange for the ERC721 referred to in the game as “smart contract”, you must accept and understand the risk of potentially not being able to sell your “smart contract” in the future. The game is designed for collectors who choose to pay for the ownership of a digital product referred to as a “smart contracts”. If you choose to speculate over the future value and liquidity of your asset, you must do so at your own risk and not hold the creators of the game or the smart contract liable for any loss or damages. Play responsibly and do not spend more than you feel the digital asset is worth.
3. SMART CONTRACTS
We have used Chinese province and region names to create unique, one-of-a-kind “Smart Contracts” which are represented by ERC721 tokens on the Ethereum BlockChain. These “Smart Contracts” are not endorsed or supported by the person appearing on the card. New Planet, Moon & Smart Contracts will be released as we deem fit. Each province and region Smart Contract may be purchased by you utilizing ether. You may purchase any province and region Smart Contract you choose, and any other party may purchase a province and region Smart Contract that you currently own if the other party is willing to pay a higher sum. The price of the tokens are hard coded into the smart contract itself and can not be changed by anyone, including the games creators. You may not stop another party from purchasing a province and region Smart Contract that you currently own, and no other third party may stop you from purchasing a province and region Smart Contract that you wish to own. Whichever party is willing to pay the cost of the province and region Smart Contract may own said Smart Contract after he or she completes the transaction.
4. THE GAME
This Game requires that you utilize a Google Chrome or Firefox web browser that currently has a MetaMask browser extension installed. MetaMask is an electronic wallet created by a third party that allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using Ethereum cryptocurrency. You may not use any other electronic wallet on the Game other than MetaMask; however, you can use other electronic wallets and third-party applications to transfer funds to your MetaMask wallet in order to make purchases and receive payment on the Game. If you do not log on to the Game with the correct browser (either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and/or if the browser does not have the MetaMask extension installed, you will be recognized by the Game, but you will not be able to interact with the Game in any way.

5. FEES AND PAYMENTS
If you choose to purchase any province and region Smart Contract” on the Game, any and all transactions will be conducted through the Ethereum network utilizing a MetaMask electronic wallet directly to a Smart Contract on the blockchain, which is not controlled by the games creators. We will not have any insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor will we be able to reverse any transaction that occurs. Because of this, we will have no liability to you or any other third party for any claims or damages that may occur due to any transaction that takes place on the Game and/or in regards to any of the Smart Contracts that we have created. The Ethereum network requires that you pay a transaction fee, commonly known as “Gas”, for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. Gas is intended to fund the hardware and software that runs the Ethereum network, as well as to prevent misuse and spam. If you choose to interact with the Game via our Site or without using the Game or our Site as a portal, you will still need to pay fee for any and every transaction you make on the Ethereum network. The smart contract keeps a 1-5% commission fee on every transaction conducted through it, in addition to the Gas charged by the Ethereum network. The creators of this website and game do not have access or control over these fees, as it is handled directly on the distributed blockchain network. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYMENTS DIRECTLY ON OUR WEBSITE.
