Stride is a decentralized peer-to-peer blockchain that people can use to liquid stake their IBC enabled tokens. The Stride blockchain is made up of free, public, and open-source software. Your use of Stride involves various risks, including, but not limited, to losses while digital assets are being supplied to Stride and losses due to validator related mechanisms, such as slashing. Before liquid staking on the Stride blockchain, you should review the relevant documentation to make sure you understand how Stride works. Additionally, just as you can access email protocols, such as SMTP, through multiple email clients, you can access pools on Stride through several web or mobile interfaces. You are responsible for doing your own diligence on those interfaces to understand the fees and risks they present.
AS DESCRIBED IN THE STRIDE LICENSES, THE STRIDE PROTOCOL IS PROVIDED “AS IS”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. Although Stride Labs ( “Stride Labs” ) developed much of the initial code for the Stride protocol, it does not provide, own, or control the Stride protocol, which is run by a decentralized validator set. Upgrades and modifications to the protocol are managed in a community-driven way by holders of the ST governance token. No developer or entity involved in creating the Stride protocol will be liable for any claims or damages whatsoever associated with your use, inability to use, or your interaction with other users of the Stride protocol, including any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages, or loss of profits, cryptocurrencies, tokens, or anything else of value.
