These ERC Terms form a part of the dash.fi Platform Agreement (the “Platform Agreement”). Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in these ERC Terms have the meanings set forth in the Platform Agreement.

We may revise any of the ERC Terms at any time by posting an updated version to our legal page.
