This website (“Website”) enables you to connect your compatible wallet and, if you are eligible, use Optimism, a decentralized, peer-to-peer Layer 2 rollup protocol on the Ethereum public blockchain (the “Protocol”) to mint non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) with a customized profile picture (an “Optimist NFTs” and a “PFPs”, respectively) and interact with certain smart contracts deployed on the Protocol (collectively, the “Service”). Please read on to learn the terms and conditions that govern your use of the Service and apply to each Optimist NFT and the associated PFP.
Please read these NFT Terms carefully. They cover important information about the Service, Optimist NFTs and PFPs, as well as information about future changes to these NFT Terms, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability. They require that you assume all of the risks associated with using the Service. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO THE SERVICE ARE SUBJECT TO THESE NFT TERMS; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE IN ANY MANNER.

2. Minting an Optimist NFT; AttestationStation
When you mint an Optimist NFT, your Optimist NFT will be permanently linked to your wallet address and will not be transferable, and other users will be able to use the “AttestationStation” (an attestation smart contract deployed on the Protocol which you can read more about here) to post permanent, publicly available attestations about, among other things, your Optimist NFT. When you or others submit information or attestations in minting an Optimist NFT or using the AttestationStation, you and they are interacting directly with the Protocol and smart contracts deployed on the Protocol and entering that information into an on-chain permanent repository, where it will be publicly accessible and cannot be deleted.
3. Accessing the Service
To access the Service you must use non-custodial wallet software (a “Web3 wallet”), which constructs and broadcasts the data (“transactions”) that allows you to interact with the Protocol. By using your Web3 wallet in connection with accessing the Service, you agree that you are using the Web3 wallet under the terms and conditions of the applicable provider of the Web3 wallet. No Web3 wallet is created by, operated by, maintained by, or affiliated with us. Accordingly, we do not have custody or control over the contents of your Web3 wallet and we have no ability to retrieve or transfer its contents. Your relationship with any given Web3 wallet provider is governed by the applicable terms of service of that third party, not these NFT Terms.
4. Restrictions on use of the Service
You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not provide or contribute anything to the Service or submit any attestation to the AttestationStation through the Service, or otherwise use or interact with the Service, in a manner that: (a) infringes or violates the intellectual property rights or any other rights of anyone else (including us); (b) violates (i) any law or regulation, including, without limitation, any applicable export control laws, sanctions laws, securities laws, anti-money laundering laws, privacy laws or any other unlawful purpose or (ii) any other purpose not reasonably intended by us; (b) is dangerous, harmful, fraudulent, misleading, deceptive, threatening, harassing, defamatory, obscene, or otherwise objectionable; (c) violates, compromises, or interferes with the security, integrity or availability of any computer, network, or technology; or (d) otherwise violates these NFT Terms.
A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access the Service. We reserve the right to take whatever action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to suspending your ability to use the Service, if we suspect you have violated any of these restrictions.
5. Service vs. Protocol; Risks
The Service facilitates your ability to access, but is distinct from, the Protocol. The Service provides one, but not the exclusive, means of accessing the Protocol. The Foundation does not own or control the Protocol, which is public, permissionless, and runs on open-source self-executing smart contracts. Your use of the Protocol may involve various risks, including, but not limited to, losses of digital assets. You are solely responsible for your wallets, for safeguarding the associated private key and for any activity that occurs using your wallet. You acknowledge that we are not responsible for any risks associated with your use of the Service or the Protocol, and cannot be held liable for any resulting losses that you experience while accessing or using the Service or the Protocol.
The Service is experimental in nature. It represents an example reference implementation only. It is not intended to be used as a primary means of accessing or interacting with the Protocol.
6. Release of claims
You expressly agree that you assume all risks in connection with accessing and using the Service, the associated smart contracts, the AttestationStation, the Optimist NFTs and the PFPs and your interaction with the Protocol. You further expressly waive and release the Foundation, as well as its affiliates and service providers, and each of their respective past, present and future officers, directors, members, employees, consultants, representatives and agents, and each of their respective successors and assigns (collectively, the “Foundation Parties”) from any and all liability, claims, causes of action, or damages arising from or in any way relating to the Service, the associated smart contracts, any Optimist NFT, any PFP or the AttestationStation, or your interaction with the Protocol.
THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED BY US ON AN “AS-IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT AVAILABILITY, ACCESSIBILITY, OR USE OF THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
WE LIKEWISE MAKE NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE PROTOCOL, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THAT AVAILABILITY, ACCESSIBILITY, OR USE OF THE PROTOCOL WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.
8. Limitation of liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL ANY FOUNDATION PARTY BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE, THE ASSOCIATED SMART CONTRACTS, OPTIMIST NFTS, PFPS, ATTESTATIONS OR THE PROTOCOL FOR: (a) ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION; (b) ANY SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY; (c) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF ONE-HUNDRED ($100) DOLLARS; OR (d) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL OR CERTAIN OTHER DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
