Information for non-US persons

The Fidelity sites are intended to be made available only to individuals in the United States, and the information on the Fidelity sites is for only such persons.

Fidelity does not intend to initially offer services to customers in all US states.

Digital assets

Buying and selling digital assets can be very risky. Digital asset values can fluctuate substantially and unexpectedly with little or no warning, which may result in a substantial or total loss of an investment. Digital assets have been and continue to be subject to substantial market, security, legal and regulatory uncertainty. Fidelity does not own or control any of the software or security protocols that are used in connection with digital assets and their related asset networks and makes no guaranties regarding the security, functionality, or availability of such protocols or asset networks.

Limitations on investment guidance and professional advice

Information appearing on the FIDELITY DIGITAL ASSETS Site is intended to be general and educational in nature. It is not intended to be, and should not be construed as, legal, tax, investment or insurance advice. Fidelity does not provide legal, tax or investment advice. Brokerage products and services are not offered through the FIDELITY DIGITAL ASSETS Site. Nothing on the Fidelity site should be construed as an offer to sell, a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a recommendation for any security by Fidelity or any third-party. You are solely responsible for determining whether any investment, investment strategy, digital asset, security or related transaction is appropriate for you based on your personal investment objectives, financial circumstances and risk tolerance. You should consult your legal, investment or tax professional regarding your specific situation.
