§5 Rules of Crowdfunding
55. Tecra provides a crowdfunding platform for creative projects. Pioneer can launch crowdfunding - funding their project using the Platform (The Pioneer starting fundraising further is referred to as: “the Startup”). When a Startup posts a project on Tecra, they are inviting other Pioneers to fundraising. Pioneer makes investment in the Startup using cryptocurrencies and fiats. Anyone who backs a project is accepting the Startup’s offer described in the rules of fundraising further referred to as: “White Paper”.
56. White Paper is concluded electronically through participation in the crowd offer and through the purchase of project tokens on the Platform, which are the sign that validates the concluded terms and conditions of fundraising.
57. Startups’ tokens are created by Startup when creating a crowdfunding on the Platform. The tokens are based on the Tecra blockchain and use the infrastructure built by Tecra. For more information on tokens, see technical paper on the Website.
58. After successful fundraising, the Startup receives a free listing on the DEX exchange owned by Tecra sp. z o.o. or/and CEX exchange BigBang.
59. The Startup can collect crypto and fiat currencies. Startup decides in which currencies the collection will be conducted. Startup is obliged to use cryptocurrency TecraCoin when fundraising on Tecra at minimum of 5% of Startups fundraising. For all other cryptocurrencies, it is up to the Startup to decide in which currency it will accept payments.
60. By accepting payments in TecraCoin, the Startup agrees to sell tokens with a discount of 5% on the sale amount using Premium Account.
61. Tecra is not responsible for exchange rate differences. In case of conducting collections in cryptocurrencies with a fluctuating exchange rate, Startup undertakes to cover the loss, if any, if the collection ends and the cryptocurrency price does not cover the collection amount.
62. Tecra offers collections in stable coins, which are cryptocurrencies based on a fixed exchange rate of the dollar or the euro, which offsets the exchange rate differences found on traditional cryptocurrencies.
64. In the event of a successful collection, funds will be transferred to the Startup within 7 days minus Tecra commission fee.
65. The estimated delivery is the Startup’s estimate. The month and year listed on each Startup’s estimate of when they will provide the reward, not a guarantee to fulfil by that time. The schedule may change as the Startup works on the project. Tecra asks Startup to think carefully, set an estimated backup, and milestones they feel confident they can work toward, and communicate with Pioneers about any changes.
66. The Startup may need to send questions about Pioneer reward. To deliver rewards, the creator might need information from Pioneer, like Pioneer mailing address or t-shirt size. They’ll request that information after the campaign has succeeded. To receive the reward, Pioneer will need to provide the information in a reasonable amount of time. Startups should not ask for personal information that is not necessary to provide Pioneer reward, and should never request sensitive personal information such as Pioneer Social Security number or payment information. Contact Tecra at [email protected] if Pioneer receives a request for information that seems inappropriate or excessive.
67. Tecra doesn’t offer refunds. Responsibility for finishing a project lies entirely with the project Startup. Tecra doesn’t hold funds on Startups’ behalf, cannot guarantee Startups’ work, and does not offer refunds.

§10 Complaint procedure
98. Whenever the Pioneer finds that Tecra services are not provided in line with the Regulations, the Pioneer may make a complaint in the following way:
99. A complaint can be made:
○ a) in written form by sending a letter to: United Race LLC, 810 Pony Express Rd, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82009
○ b) in electronic form by sending an e-mail to: [email protected];
100. A complaint should include:
○ a) the name (log-in) which identifies the Pioneer on the Platform,
○ b) the subject and circumstance which justifies the complaint,
○ c) the proposed way of settling the complaint.
101. Complaints are handled in the order in which they are lodged but not later than within 14 (fourteen) days for basic account and up to 48 hours for premium account. Whenever a complaint does not contain information necessary for its examination, Tecra will ask the Pioneer to add this information and the 14 (fourteen) day period will start running on the day on which the additional information is delivered. In justified cases Tecra may extend the time of examining the complaint by an additional 14 (fourteen) days and the person submitting the complaint will be notified of this fact. Whenever services provided by external entities are involved, the complaint handling time may be extended by the expected time of handling the complaint by that entity, about which the Pioneer will be informed. Data of such an external entity will also be released to the Pioneer.
102. The Pioneer submitting a complaint will be informed about the way of resolving the complaint in the same form in which it was submitted.
§11 Transaction security procedures
103. Whenever Tecra has a justified suspicion, especially a suspicion that funds or cryptocurrencies used in a transaction come from criminal activity, it reserves the right to freeze such a transaction or the Pioneer’s account and to report the justified suspicion to law enforcement and judicial authorities. This report is separate from other measures Tecra will take independently. Tecra has the right to keep the Pioneer’s account frozen until such doubts are cleared (e.g. by a new verification of the Pioneer) or until a respective decision comes from the competent authorities.
104. Whenever the Pioneer’s data stored on the Platform is found incomplete, incorrect, or outdated, Tecra will be authorised to require the Pioneer to undergo a new verification process described in the Regulations or to deliver additional documents as needed in the particular case.
105. Acceptance of these Regulations is equal to the Pioneer’s consent for Tecra to subject the Pioneer to the additional verification process.
106. In the case where doubts about the source of funds or cryptocurrency used in transactions are not resolved and additional verification fails to identify the Pioneer or if there is uncertainty whether the Pioneer’s declaration of will regarding the transaction is free of faults, Tecra will refuse to carry out the transaction.
107. Whenever—under circumstances referred to in Section 3—Tecra has already accepted any transfers of money or cryptocurrency, it is allowed to freeze the transaction by depositing cryptocurrency on the blocked Pioneer’s account, on Tecra’s deposit account, or in a court deposit until the appropriate law enforcement and judicial authorities offer a final verdict saying who is the owner of the funds.
108. Tecra may, following a reasonable request of a bank or other financial institution which suspects a fraud, freeze the transaction process by depositing the cash or cryptocurrency on the blocked Pioneer’s account, on Tecra’s deposit account, or in a court deposit until the appropriate law enforcement and judicial authorities offer a final verdict saying who the owner of such funds is.
109. If Tecra manages to identify the cryptocurrency owner beyond any doubt with its own forces, it will make an independent decision on returning these funds to their owner.
110. Tecra will immediately inform parties to a suspended or blocked transaction of this fact.
111. A delay in finalising a transaction caused by its suspension or account blockage, or return of funds after blocking the transaction caused by measures taken in connection with the Pioneer’s operations which were found inconsistent with the Regulations or by measures taken by Tecra on the grounds of these Regulations (e.g necessity to carry out additional Pioneer verification) does not provide grounds for any claims against Tecra, especially, any claims for lost profits.
112. If necessary, Tecra will not seek the Pioneer’s permission to release the Pioneer’s identification data to authorities, referred to in Section 3, including the data provided by the Pioneer in the verification process, referred to in Section 3 and other information available on the Pioneer’s operations on the Platform.
§12 Amendments to the Rules and Regulations
113. Tecra is authorised to amend the Regulations and such amendments become effective at a date set forth by Tecra. The amendment date may not come sooner than 7 days after delivering a modified version of the Regulations to the Pioneer.
114. Amendment of the Regulations must be communicated to the Pioneer by a letter sent to the e-mail address ascribed to the Pioneer’s account.
115. If the Pioneer does not accept the Regulations amendments, the Pioneer shall forthwith contact Tecra by ordinary mail or by an e-mail message sent to the following address: [email protected] in order to have the agreement terminated.
116. Modification of the Fees and the Payment Methods, is not considered to be an amendment to the Regulations.
