LFE Market Ltd reserves the right to use its own judgment in such circumstances.

You will be able to sell your LFE Tokens in the secondary market on the following crypto exchanges: StellarTerm, StellarX and Stellarport.
Are there financial statements? If so, are they audited, and by whom?

Approximately 6 weeks after the ITO is complete, contributors will receive instructions on how to access their digital tokens. During the ITO, when you make your contribution you will receive notification of exactly how many LFE tokens you have received for your contribution and the date/time that the transaction was completed.
What are the costs associated with the LFE exchange?
The actual costs associated with running the LFE Exchange are expected to be lower than that of a comparable conventional (non-blockchain) based exchange. The significant reduction in cost is matched by an increase in transaction speed, transparency and security. A more comprehensive description of how this is achieved is covered in the LFE Exchange whitepaper.
Are you launching your own blockchain?
No. The LFE Platform will use the Stellar networks to support token issuance, trades, and transfers. Built on distributed ledger technologies, these networks will clear in seconds and will support substantially higher transactions per second (~2000tps) than competitive networks used by Bitcoin (3-6tps) and Ethereum (15-50tps). LFE Tokens are the underlying economic unit of the LFE marketplace.
Why is LFE on the blockchain?
LFE was built on blockchain technology to leverage the inherent self-administering capabilities, flexibility, accessibility and scalability. A blockchain is a distributed public database that keeps a permanent record of digital transactions. This distributed database is not controlled by a central administrator, but instead is a network of replicated databases (meaning each node in the network stores its own copy of the blockchain) that is shared and visible to anyone within network. Every “block” in this blockchain contains a record of recent transactions, a reference to the block that came immediately before it, and an answer to a difficult mathematical puzzle, among other things. Thanks to this setup, anyone can own and transfer assets digitally without the need for a third party ensuring confidentiality, compliance and is fundamentally more cost-effective than the conventional third-party intermediaries that typically provide these types of services.
Is the blockchain open and public? Has the code been published, and has there been an independent cybersecurity audit?
The LFE Platform will use the Stellar network to support token issuance, trades, and transfers. Built on distributed ledger technologies, these networks will clear in seconds and will support substantially higher transactions per second (~1500tps) than competitive networks used by Bitcoin (3-6tps) and Ethereum (15-50tps). LFE Tokens are the underlying economic unit of the LFE marketplace. LFE Tokens will be intended to be utility tokens that will help power the LFE platform. The platform code is proprietary and has not been published although the token issuance and smart contracts associated with the operation of the LFE tokens will be made publically available through appropriate technical channels (E.g. Reddit, Github etc.) Cybersecurity and the prevention of fraud, hacking, phishing are taken extremely seriously by LFE. Penetration tests and cybersecurity reviews and testing are carried out as part of the routine maintenance and assessment of the LFE network. The LFE and marketplace security posture will be independently audited to the PCI DSS certification.
