* Our legal team asked us to specify that the charity gets “net proceeds” from this drop, meaning everything except the processing and transaction fees charged by third-party vendors. The fees are collected by Stripe (4.5% + 30c per transaction) if paying with card, and Coinbase (2.5%) if paying with crypto. If paying with Matic (on Polygon), there are no added fees. There is also a small “gas” fee on each transaction that goes to the blockchain network. For Polygon chain this fee is very low at about $0.01–$0.03.

RESIDENTS OF NEW YORK STATE ARE PROHIBITED FROM RECEIVING AN NFT AND SHOULD NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS CHARITABLE ENDEAVOR.
The receipt of an NFT is not intended to be an offering or sale of securities, swaps on either securities or commodities or a financial instrument of any kind as may be determined by any law, rule, or regulation. Purchases and sales of NFTs may not be subject to the protections of any laws governing those types of financial instruments. This document and all other content, including without limitation on republic.com/for-ukraine do not constitute a prospectus or offering document, and are not an offer to sell. Republic will not custody, control or direct any consideration for the NFTs, the consideration for such being provided directly to SES.
You should not make a charitable donation to the SES to receive the NFTs for financial investment purposes. Whether or not a donation to SES is tax-deductible will be solely determined by you and your independent advisors. The NFTs are not designed for investment purposes and should not be considered as a type of financial investment by any law, rule, or regulation. With respect to your purchase of the NFT, you acknowledge and agree that you are not expecting to profit from the NFT based on any efforts by either of the Supporters or its affiliates.

You agree and warrant that any consideration provided to the SES was not acquired via money-laundering, illegal activity or in a manner or method that would otherwise call into question the suitability of the use of such consideration.
You hereby expressly waive and release any and all claims, now known or hereafter known, against either of the Supporters, its affiliates and their officers, directors, manager(s), employees, agents, shareholders/members (collectively, "Releasees"), related to the NFTs, whether arising out of the ordinary negligence of either of the Supporters or any Releasees or otherwise.
