Boomerang Exchange price is volatile

The price of a Boomerang Exchange can unpredictably increase or decrease over a short period of time due to its young economy, novel nature, and sometimes illiquid markets. Consequently, keeping your savings with Boomerang Exchange is not recommended at this point. Boomerang Exchange should be seen like a high risk asset, and you should never store money that you cannot afford to lose with Boomerang Exchange. If you receive payments with Boomerang Exchange, many service providers can convert them to your local currency.


Boomerang Exchange payments are irreversible

A Boomerang Exchange transaction cannot be reversed, it can only be refunded by the person receiving the funds. This means you should take care to do business with people and organizations you know and trust, or who have an established reputation. For their part, businesses need to keep track of the payment requests they are displaying to their customers. Boomerang Exchange can detect typos and usually won't let you send money to an invalid address by mistake, but it's best to have controls in place for additional safety and redundancy. Additional services might exist in the future to provide more choice and protection for both businesses and consumers.


Boomerang Exchange is not anonymous

Some effort is required to protect your privacy with Boomerang Exchange. All Boomerang Exchange transactions are stored publicly and permanently on the network, which means anyone can see the balance and transactions of any Boomerang Exchange address. However, the identity of the user behind an address remains unknown until information is revealed during a purchase or in other circumstances. This is one reason why Boomerang Exchange addresses should only be used once. Always remember that it is your responsibility to adopt good practices in order to protect your privacy.

Government taxes and regulations
