AMONG OTHER THINGS, THIS CONTRACT INCLUDES INDEMNITIES FROM YOU TO THE SWEEPSTAKES ENTITIES AND A LIMITATION OF YOUR RIGHTS AND REMEDIES.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN A PRIZE. A PURCHASE DOES NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ODDS OF WINNING WILL DEPEND ON THE TOTAL NUMBER OF ELIGIBLE ENTRIES RECEIVED. INTERNET ACCESS AND ONLINE ENTRY IS REQUIRED. REGISTRATION FOR A BLOCKCHAIN.COM WALLET AT BLOCKCHAIN.COM IS REQUIRED. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.

1. Eligibility: The Sweepstakes is open to attendees of the eMerge Conference 2022 who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. Employees, officers and representatives and members of the immediate family members (i.e., parent, spouse, siblings, children, grandparents, step parents, step children and step siblings, and their respective spouses, and those living in the same household, whether or not related) of Blockchain.com and its affiliated companies, parent companies, subsidiaries, participating promotional partners, advertising and promotion agencies, webmasters and any company involved in the creation, design, execution, productio, or fulfillment of the Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes Entities”) are not eligible.

2. How To Enter: The Sweepstakes begins on or about 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) on April 17, 2022 and ends at 5:00 p.m. ET on April 20, 2022 and ends at 5:00 p.m. ET on April 20, 2022 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). There are two (2) ways you can enter the Sweepstakes:

(A) Online:

i. A Blockchain.com wallet account is required to enter the Sweepstakes, so entrants must either have an existing Blockchain.com wallet or must activate a new Blockchain.com wallet to enter the Sweepstakes. To enter, during the Sweepstakes Period, visitwww.blockchain.com or download the free Blockchain.com app (if you do not already have it) and either (a) sign in to your Blockchain.com wallet account or (b) complete the registration process to activate a Blockchain.com wallet.

ii. Then, during the Sweepstakes Period you must verify your Bockchain.com account and purchase $100 equivalent of any digital asset.

Any entrants entering online will also receive a one-off $50 bonus in Bitcoin (based on the fair market value of Bitcoin on or about the date of Winner notification).

(B) By Mail: You may enter by mail without obligation by hand writing your name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address and the name of the Sweepstakes on a 4”x6” card and mail to: Blockchain.com, Inc., Attn: Marketing Department, 1450 Brickell Avenue, Suite 2780, Miami, FL 33131. Mail-in entries are limited to one (1) entry per person and must be postmarked on or before the final day of the Sweepstakes Period and received on or before the last day of the Sweepstakes Period.

There is a limit of one (1) entry per person. Normal time rates, if any, charged by the Entrants’ Internet service or mobile provider will apply. The odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received within the Sweepstakes Period.

When submitting their entry, Entrants are required to provide complete and truthful information. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Blockchain.com’s sole and absolute discretion. Entries submitted by persons who do not meet the eligible requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. The use of any scripts, computer programs, robotic repetitive, macro, automatic, programmed or similar automated entry methods or agents to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person or that person’s agents. Blockchain.com will disqualify any entry from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements. All entries submitted in compliance with these Official Rules and not disqualified or void are considered “Eligible Entries.” All entries are the property of Blockchain.com.

By entering the Sweepstakes, Entrants: (a) agree to be bound by these Official Rules and by the interpretation of these Official Rules by Blockchain.com and by the decisions of Blockchain.com, which are final and binding in all respects; (b) acknowledge compliance with these Official Rules; (c) agree to comply with any and all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations; and (d) agree to release and hold harmless the Sweepstakes Entities from and against any and all claims, injury or damages arising out of or relating to participation in the Sweepstakes and/or the use, misuse or redemption of the Prize, and for any claim including claims based upon defamation, publicity rights, invasion of privacy, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, or any other intellectual property-related cause of action arising from or related to the Sweepstakes, the Prize, or Blockchain.com’s advertising and marketing related to the Sweepstakes, Entrants or the Winner. Winning the Prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

4. Prize: One (1) Prize is available to be won. The “Prize” shall be awarded to the Winner (defined below) of the Sweepstakes. The Prize consists of the following: $5,000 in Bitcoin (based on the fair market value of Bitcoin on or about the date of Winner notification).

If for any reason the Prize is unavailable or the Prize or related event is delayed, canceled or postponed, or for any other reason, Blockchain.com reserves the right to modify the Sweepstakes in its sole discretion and award a substitute prize, or portion of prize, of comparable or greater value as set forth in these Official Rules. No substitution, transfer, assignment or cash equivalent of the Prize, or any portion thereof, is permitted by a Winner. The Sweepstakes Entities shall have no responsibility or obligation to a Winner who is unable or unavailable to, or who does not for any reason, accept or utilize the Prize. In the event a potential Winner cannot accept the Prize, an alternate Winner will be randomly drawn from all remaining Eligible Entries. All costs and expenses not specifically listed above as part of the Prize are solely the Winner’s responsibility. The Prize is provided “as is”. Entrants acknowledge that the Sweepstakes Entities have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to any Prize, including any implied warranty of merchantability of fitness for a particular purpose. Any prize pictured in advertising and other Sweepstakes materials are for illustrative purposes only.

The value of the Prize will be taxable to the Winner as income. An IRS Form 1099 and W9 will be issued in the name of the Winner for the actual value of the Prize awarded. All U.S. federal, state and local tax liability, and any other costs and expenses associated with acceptance or use of the Prize not specifically provided for in these Official Rules, are solely the Winner’s responsibility (regardless of whether the prize, in whole or in part, is used).

5. Winner Selection and Notification: The potential “Winner” for the Sweepstakes will be determined via random drawing from all Eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Winner will be chosen no later than twenty (20) days after the end of the Sweepstakes Period. The potential Winner will be notified within thirty (30) days of the end of the Sweepstakes Period (at the email address registered with the Blockchain.com wallet), and will be required to confirm his/her account for verification purposes. If the potential Winner cannot be reached after a reasonable effort has been exerted and/or fails to respond to confirm his/her email address within three (3) days from when the initial notification is sent, the potential Winner forfeits the Prize, and an alternate potential Winner will be randomly drawn from all remaining Eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. If the alternate potential Winner is unable to accept the Prize, the Prize is forfeited and another alternate potential Winner will be randomly drawn from all remaining Eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. This Winner selection and notification process shall be continued until a Winner is confirmed. If the Prize or a prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the Prize will be forfeited and an alternate potential Winner will be randomly drawn.

6. Winner Verification: Each potential Winner may be required to prove eligibility, including, without limitation, proof of age, residence and identity, which may include submitting a copy of a driver’s license, passport or similar government issued identification, within three (3) days of being notified of being a potential Winner.

A potential Winner (or any alternate potential Winner if one must be selected) is not official and shall not be confirmed as the Winner until he/she has completed, signed and returned documentation required by Blockchain.com, including a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility, release of liability (except where prohibited), publicity release form, and a completed IRS W-9 form, and the eligibility of the potential Winner has been verified. Forms must be received within thirty (30) days after notification of winning. If a potential Winner does not complete all forms necessary within the time given and/or in the event of non-compliance by a potential Winner, such potential Winner shall be disqualified and shall forfeit the prize, and all privileges otherwise due as a Winner shall be terminated and an alternate potential Winner will be chosen in a random drawing from among all of the remaining Eligible Entries.

Provided that a potential Winner is in compliance with the Official Rules and after having successfully proven eligibility, the potential Winner will be determined to be a Winner. Blockchain.com expressly reserves the right to delay the announcement of the Winner for any reason it deems necessary. In addition, Blockchain.com reserves the right to select an alternate Winner in the event that any potential Winner fails to comply with these Official Rules.

If, for any reason, more bona fide Winners come forward seeking to claim the Prize in excess of the Prize for the Sweepstakes available as set forth in these Official Rules, the Winner of the Sweepstakes’ Prize available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for each such Prize. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential Winners.

7. Liability Release and Indemnity: By entering the Sweepstakes, Entrant agrees that Blockchain.com, any other Sweepstakes Entities, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, agents, retailers, distributors and representatives are indemnified, released and will be held harmless by Entrant from any and all liability, for any damages, injuries or losses of any kind to person(s), including death, or property, arising directly or indirectly from the acceptance, possession, misuse or use of the Prize. The Prize is offered and provided “as is” with no warranty or guarantee by Blockchain.com, either express or implied.

Entrants assume all liability for an injury or damage caused, or claim to be caused, by participation in the Sweepstakes, the use of the Sweepstake website(s), or the acceptance, receipt, or use of any prize or prize component. Entrants further agree that in any cause of action, the Sweepstakes Entities’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes, and in no event shall the Sweepstakes Entities be liable for attorney’s fees.

The Sweepstakes Entities assume no responsibility for and will disqualify entries that are: stolen, late, lost, illegible, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, altered, tampered with, unauthorized, fraudulent, damaged, destroyed, delayed, misdirected, not delivered, not received, or that have incorrect or inaccurate entry information, whether caused by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes, or by any human, mechanical or electronic error that may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes, or other errors appearing within the Official Rules or in the Sweepstakes related advertisements. The Sweepstakes Entities assume no responsibility for any typographical or other error in the printing of the offer, administration of the Sweepstakes, errors in processing entries, identifying the Winners, in the announcement of the Prize and Winners, the delivery of any Prize, any problems or technical malfunction of any telephone network or lines, computer systems, online systems, servers or providers, computer equipment, software, failure of any e-mail or players on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or on any website including Blockchain.com, or any combination thereof, including, without limitation, any injury or damage to Entrant’s or any other person’s computer system/software related to or resulting from participation in, uploading any materials or downloading any materials in the Sweepstakes. Use of any device to automate or subvert entry is prohibited and any entries received by such means will be void. Blockchain.com reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any person it suspects or finds: (i) to have tampered with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes; (ii) to be acting in a disruptive manner, or with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person; (iii) to display behavior that will bring such Winner or the Sweepstakes Entities into disgrace; (iv) to have provided inaccurate information on any legal documents submitted in connection with the Sweepstakes; or (v) to be acting in violation of these Official Rules.

8. Grant of Rights. By entering, Entrant irrevocably consents to the use of his or her name, image, photograph, likeness, biographical information, and any video footage related to the Prize, for Blockchain.com’s advertising, promotional or other commercial purposes in all media now or hereafter known, worldwide and in perpetuity without additional compensation, unless prohibited by law.

9. General Terms. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible if the Sweepstakes cannot take place, or if the Prize cannot be awarded due to delays, interruptions or failures due to acts of God, war, natural disasters, pandemics, weather, acts or threats of terrorism, strikes, lockouts, labor disputes, work stoppages, fire, acts of government, or other events outside of the reasonable control of the Sweepstakes Entities. If, for any reason the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including, without limitation, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the reasonable control of the Sweepstakes Entities, which, in Blockchain.com’s sole determination, corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, Blockchain.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify, or suspend the Sweepstakes or any part of the Sweepstakes. If the Sweepstakes or any part of the Sweepstakes is terminated or modified prior to the closing date of the Sweepstakes, notice will be posted on Blockchain.com. If time permits and the Prize will be awarded to a potential Winner to be selected in a random drawing from among all of the remaining uncorrupted Eligible Entries received prior to any such event outside of the reasonable control of Blockchain.com. Blockchain.com reserves the right to modify and amend these Official Rules from time to time during the Sweepstakes for clarification purposes.

In the event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in the Sweepstakes–related materials, privacy policy or terms of use on a website and/or the terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall prevail, govern and control and the discrepancy will be resolved in Blockchain.com’s sole and absolute discretion.

By entering the Sweepstakes, Entrants: (a) agree to be bound by these Official Rules and by the interpretation of these Official Rules by Blockchain.com and by the decisions of Blockchain.com, which are final and binding in all respects; (b) acknowledge compliance with these Official Rules; (c) agree to comply with any and all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations; and (d) agree to release and hold harmless the Sweepstakes Entities from and against any and all claims, injury or damages arising out of or relating to participation in the Sweepstakes and/or the use, misuse or redemption of the Prize, and for any claim including claims based upon defamation, publicity rights, invasion of privacy, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, or any other intellectual property-related cause of action arising from or related to the Sweepstakes, the Prize, or Blockchain.com’s advertising and marketing related to the Sweepstakes, Entrants or the Winner. Winning the Prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

4. Prize: One (1) Prize is available to be won. The “Prize” shall be awarded to the Winner (defined below) of the Sweepstakes. The Prize consists of the following: $5,000 in Bitcoin (based on Bitcoin valuation on or about the date of Winner notification).

If for any reason the Prize is unavailable or the Prize or related event is delayed, canceled or postponed, or for any other reason, Blockchain.com reserves the right to modify the Sweepstakes in its sole discretion and award a substitute prize, or portion of prize, of comparable or greater value as set forth in these Official Rules. No substitution, transfer, assignment or cash equivalent of the Prize, or any portion thereof, is permitted by a Winner. The Sweepstakes Entities shall have no responsibility or obligation to a Winner who is unable or unavailable to, or who does not for any reason, accept or utilize the Prize. In the event a potential Winner cannot accept the Prize, an alternate Winner will be randomly drawn from all remaining Eligible Entries. All costs and expenses not specifically listed above as part of the Prize are solely the Winner’s responsibility. The Prize is provided “as is”. Entrants acknowledge that the Sweepstakes Entities have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to any Prize, including any implied warranty of merchantability of fitness for a particular purpose. Any prize pictured in advertising and other Sweepstakes materials are for illustrative purposes only.

The value of the Prize will be taxable to the Winner as income. An IRS Form 1099 and W9 will be issued in the name of the Winner for the actual value of the Prize awarded. All U.S. federal, state and local tax liability, and any other costs and expenses associated with acceptance or use of the Prize not specifically provided for in these Official Rules, are solely the Winner’s responsibility (regardless of whether the prize, in whole or in part, is used).

5. Winner Selection and Notification: The potential “Winner” for the Sweepstakes will be determined via random drawing from all Eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Winner will be chosen no later than twenty (20) days after the end of the Sweepstakes Period. The Prize will be awarded to the authorized account holder of the Twitter account through which the entry was submitted, provided such account holder matches the Blockchain.com account holder information. The potential Winner will be notified within thirty (30) days of the drawing via Twitter (at the account used to submit the entry), and will be required to confirm his/her account for verification purposes. If the potential Winner cannot be reached after a reasonable effort has been exerted and/or fails to respond to confirm his/her email address within three (3) days from when the initial notification is sent, the potential Winner forfeits the Prize, and an alternate potential Winner will be randomly drawn from all remaining Eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. If the alternate potential Winner is unable to accept the Prize, the Prize is forfeited and another alternate potential Winner will be randomly drawn from all remaining Eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. This Winner selection and notification process shall be continued until a Winner is confirmed. If the Prize or a prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the Prize will be forfeited and an alternate potential Winner will be randomly drawn.

6. Winner Verification: Each potential Winner may be required to prove eligibility, including, without limitation, proof of age, residence and identity, which may include submitting a copy of a driver’s license, passport or similar government issued identification, within three (3) days of being notified of being a potential Winner.

A potential Winner (or any alternate potential Winner if one must be selected) is not official and shall not be confirmed as the Winner until he/she has completed, signed and returned documentation required by Blockchain.com, including a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility, release of liability (except where prohibited), publicity release form, and a completed IRS W-9 form, and the eligibility of the potential Winner has been verified. Forms must be received within thirty (30) days after notification of winning. If a potential Winner does not complete all forms necessary within the time given and/or in the event of non-compliance by a potential Winner, such potential Winner shall be disqualified and shall forfeit the prize, and all privileges otherwise due as a Winner shall be terminated and an alternate potential Winner will be chosen in a random drawing from among all of the remaining Eligible Entries.

Provided that a potential Winner is in compliance with the Official Rules and after having successfully proven eligibility, the potential Winner will be determined to be a Winner. Blockchain.com expressly reserves the right to delay the announcement of the Winner for any reason it deems necessary. In addition, Blockchain.com reserves the right to select an alternate Winner in the event that any potential Winner fails to comply with these Official Rules.

If, for any reason, more bona fide Winners come forward seeking to claim the Prize in excess of the Prize for the Sweepstakes available as set forth in these Official Rules, the Winner of the Sweepstakes’ Prize available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for each such Prize. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential Winners.

7. Liability Release and Indemnity: By entering the Sweepstakes, Entrant agrees that Blockchain.com, any other Sweepstakes Entities, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, agents, retailers, distributors and representatives are indemnified, released and will be held harmless by Entrant from any and all liability, for any damages, injuries or losses of any kind to person(s), including death, or property, arising directly or indirectly from the acceptance, possession, misuse or use of the Prize.

Blockchain.com reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any person it suspects or finds: (i) to have tampered with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes; (ii) to be acting in a disruptive manner, or with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person; (iii) to display behavior that will bring such Winner or the Sweepstakes Entities into disgrace; (iv) to have provided inaccurate information on any legal documents submitted in connection with the Sweepstakes; or (v) to be acting in violation of these Official Rules. ANY VIOLATION OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES BY A WINNER WILL RESULT IN SUCH WINNER’S DISQUALIFICATION AS A WINNER OF THE SWEEPSTAKES AND ALL PRIVILEGES AS A WINNER WILL BE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED.

8. Grant of Rights. By entering, Entrant irrevocably consents to the use of his or her name, image, photograph, likeness, biographical information, and any video footage related to the Prize, for Blockchain.com’s advertising, promotional or other commercial purposes in all media now or hereafter known, worldwide and in perpetuity without additional compensation, unless prohibited by law.

9. General Terms. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible if the Sweepstakes cannot take place, or if the Prize cannot be awarded due to delays, interruptions or failures due to acts of God, war, natural disasters, pandemics, weather, acts or threats of terrorism, strikes, lockouts, labor disputes, work stoppages, fire, acts of government, or other events outside of the reasonable control of the Sweepstakes Entities. If, for any reason the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including, without limitation, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the reasonable control of the Sweepstakes Entities, which, in Blockchain.com’s sole determination, corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, Blockchain.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify, or suspend the Sweepstakes or any part of the Sweepstakes. If the Sweepstakes or any part of the Sweepstakes is terminated or modified prior to the closing date of the Sweepstakes, notice will be posted on Blockchain.com. If time permits and the Prize will be awarded to a potential Winner to be selected in a random drawing from among all of the remaining uncorrupted Eligible Entries received prior to any such event outside of the reasonable control of Blockchain.com. Blockchain.com reserves the right to modify and amend these Official Rules from time to time during the Sweepstakes for clarification purposes.

ANY ATTEMPT BY ANY PERSON TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE SWEEPSTAKES MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAW AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, BLOCKCHAIN.COM RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES) FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
