12. Risk Disclosure Statement for $ELS

Smart Contract Security Risks
Vulnerability to Exploits: The $ELS system heavily relies on the security of its smart contracts. Any vulnerability in the contract code could be exploited, leading to the theft of $ELS or underlying assets.
Immutable Contracts: Once deployed, smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain are immutable. If a critical flaw is discovered post-deployment, it cannot be rectified without creating a new contract and migrating all assets, a process that could be complex and risky.

Cross-Chain Interoperability and Performance
Blockchain Congestion: Both the Ethereum network and other integrated networks experience periods of high congestion, leading to increased transaction fees and delayed confirmations. Such issues can adversely affect the functionality and user experience of $ELS.
Increased Transaction Costs: During periods of congestion, gas fees on the host blockchain can rise significantly. This can deter users from transacting with $ELS during peak times, potentially reducing liquidity and limiting functionality.
Delayed Transaction Times: Transactions involving $ELS will face longer confirmation times during network congestion.

Impaired Functionality in DeFi: Congestion can severely disrupt activities, including collateralization, loan repayments, and liquidity provisioning.
Arbitrage Inefficiencies: Congestion can lead to missed opportunities and inefficiencies because arbitrage often depends on the ability to quickly capitalize on price differences. Delays caused by congestion can erase potential profits.

Custody and Centralization Concerns
Custodian Trust: $ELS operates with a centralized custodian model, where custodians manage the underlying assets. Users must trust these custodians to securely manage the assets and to act honestly in the minting and burning processes of $ELS.
Single Point of Failure: The custodian's security measures become a critical point of failure. Should the custodian's systems be compromised, the underlying assets could be stolen, potentially collapsing the value of $ELS.
