Terms of Service & Privacy Policy

The following document describes the Terms of Service and privacy policy for Jeremy Rubin (Jeremy Rubin d/b/a POWSWAP).

To cut through the legalese: POWSWAP is a landing page for experimental peer-to-peer financial software based on Bitcoin. We aren’t currently providing any services whatsoever, but are simply providing basic information on what the technology may be able to accomplish and collecting information from interested users to get feedback as a part of the engineering design process. Well before POWSWAP offers any functionality to users, it will undergo a thorough review of the appropriate compliance needs, legal disclaimers, and procedures required in order for POWSWAP to offer functionality to users.

As of writing, POWSWAP is not offering any functionality or open source financial software. It’s just a fancy web form to gauge interest.

Terms of Service


By accessing the website at http://powswap.com, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms of service, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. If you do not agree with any of these terms, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site. The materials contained in this website are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.

Use License

Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of the materials (information or software) on POWSWAP’s website for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license you may not:

  • modify or copy the materials;
  • use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non-commercial);
  • attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on POWSWAP’s website;
  • remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or
  • transfer the materials to another person or “mirror” the materials on any other server.

This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by POWSWAP at any time. Upon terminating your viewing of these materials or upon the termination of this license, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic or printed format.


The materials on POWSWAP’s website are provided on an ‘as is’ basis. POWSWAP makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties including, without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights.

Further, POWSWAP does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its website or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site. Nothing on POWSWAP’s website should be taken as financial advice. As always, in the words of former CFTC chairman Chris Giancarlo, “As you invest remember: caution, balance & DYOR.”


In no event shall POWSWAP or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on POWSWAP’s website, even if POWSWAP or a POWSWAP authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

Accuracy of materials

The materials appearing on POWSWAP’s website could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. POWSWAP does not warrant that any of the materials on its website are accurate, complete or current. POWSWAP may make changes to the materials contained on its website at any time without notice. However POWSWAP does not make any commitment to update the materials.

POWSWAP has not reviewed all of the sites linked to its website and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked site. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by POWSWAP of the site. Use of any such linked website is at the user’s own risk.


POWSWAP may revise these terms of service for its website at any time without notice. By using this website you are agreeing to be bound by the then current version of these terms of service.

Governing Law
