    FEE AND PAYMENT
Any purchases from the APP will be done through smart contracts on a blockchain using a wallet like Metamask or 【Particle Network】wallet. Any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the Blockchain via an e-wallet. We will have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we be able to reverse any transactions. Thus, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in via the App or using the Smart Contracts.
BNB Smart Chain requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the BSC network. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralized BSC network. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the App.
In addition to the Gas Fee, each time you utilize a Smart Contract to conduct a transaction with another user via the App, you authorize us to collect a commission of 5% of the total value of that transaction (each, a “Commission”). You acknowledge and agree that the Commission will be transferred directly to us through the BSC Network as a part of the transaction.
As between us, you will be solely responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments (except taxes on our net income) now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority (collectively, “Taxes”) associated with your use of the App (including, without limitation, any Taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership or transfer of your MMMs). Except for income taxes levied on Meta Merge, you: (i) will pay or reimburse us for all national, federal, state, local, or other taxes and assessments of any jurisdiction, including value-added taxes and taxes as required by international tax treaties, customs or other import or export taxes, and amounts levied in lieu thereof based on charges set, services performed or payments made hereunder, as are now or hereafter may be imposed under the authority of any national, state, local or any other taxing jurisdiction; and (ii) shall not be entitled to deduct the amount of any such taxes, duties or assessments from payments made to us pursuant to these Terms.
