Some countries are not supported for BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN calls, you will be able to verify in our list of supported countries if your country is amongst them.

You may buy and sell mobile data packages by using the BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN Marketplace platform. You may also buy or sell these data packages by using BFON and FON tokens or other payment methods. You may place orders at any time at a price set by you and within permissible market parameters (the parameters are set by BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN).
When using the Marketplace BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN cannot guarantee that you will be able to trade your BFON and FON tokens and mobile data on the open market at any particular price or time.
You can verify your transactions which will allow you to see the date, amount, and transaction details of each of your purchased and sold data packages in the marketplace in your transaction history of your BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN app.
You can verify your balance of BFON and FON tokens and mobile data. For mobile data you can verify your remaining data volume of data packages available and their expiry date. For BFON and FON tokens you will be able to check the total balance in BFON and FON tokens including bonus, rewards, and BFON and FON tokens obtained from selling mobile data on the Marketplace.
You can verify your pending offers of mobile data on the Marketplace.

Data Packages with BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN eSIM
You can buy data packages to connect to the internet from several countries by installing a free BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN eSIM in your device. The BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN eSIM is embedded in your data package without the need of a physical SIM card.

8. BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN APP – Withdrawal Services

Please check our section 9 below on restrictions on withdrawals.
Withdrawals are also conditional to a one-time verification of your account with us. If you have been already verified, you can proceed with withdrawals otherwise, you need to make a purchase in the BLOCFONE and FONECOIN App by using PayPal, credit card, Google Pay, or Apple Pay. The verification will take some days, after which you will receive a notification that your verification was successfully completed.
Withdrawal of BFON and FON tokens can be done by sending your BFON and FON tokens into a compatible wallet of your preference. It is solely your duty to verify that your wallet runs on a compatible network with our BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN tokens. Please note that we will not be held responsible in the event that your wallet is not compatible with our BLOCFONE and FONECOIN tokens and your BFON and FON tokens go misplaced. In such cases, no refunds or compensation for losses can be claimed with us. Please also note that withdrawals do not mean that your BFON and FON tokens can be exchanged with fiat to refund the price paid by you for your BFON and FON tokens. Withdrawal means that your BFON and FON tokens will be simply moved from one wallet to another.
You may add a wallet of your choice in the BLOCFONE and FONECOIN App and save it for future withdrawals. Wallet addresses can be inserted by scanning their QR codes or inserted manually. Although our system will help you to ensure that the correct address has been inserted by warning you, we will not be responsible in the event that you have inserted a wrong wallet address that our system did not recognize as incorrect, and as a consequence, your BFON and FON tokens go misplaced.
Your withdrawal order will be subject to a variable fee based on the amount to be withdrawn which shall be charged to you in BFON and FON tokens and will be automatically deducted from your account. Please note there is a minimum fee chargeable and accordingly a minimum withdrawal limit that you may verify when inputting the desired amount of BFON and FON tokens to be withdrawn.
Successful withdrawal shall be followed by a confirmation setting the amount deposited in your new wallet and the new wallet address. In the event that the withdrawal is unsuccessful you will also be notified and your BFON and FON tokens should be credited back to your account. In the event your BFON and FON tokens should not be credited back you may contact our support team.
It may occur that BLOCFONE and FONECOIN decides, for legal or technical or discretionary reason, to discontinue or suspend the withdrawal services.
Unless the reason for discontinuance or suspension is beyond our control we will notify you at least 30 days in advance of the notice of discontinuance.
During the 30 days’ notice period you will be allowed to withdraw your BFON and FON tokens. Upon the expiry of our notice, you will no longer be able to withdraw your BFON and FON tokens, and you shall not hold us responsible for any loss that the discontinuance of the service may cause to you.
You also acknowledge that we may immediately terminate the withdrawal services without following the process set out above, in case the removal is urgently required for compliance with any laws or request from a recognized authority, and for such loss of service, you will not hold us responsible.
9. Restrictions on Withdrawals
BFON and FON tokens obtained as join-in bonuses, rewards, or placed in orders shall not qualify for withdrawals. You will be shown your available balance for withdrawal which may not necessarily match your total balance of BFON and FON tokens in your BLOCFONE AND FONECOIN wallet.
Your withdrawals may be limited to certain amounts for every 24 hours period. Such limitations shall be automatically displayed on your display and will reflect the level of account verification successfully completed by you. We reserve the right to change the limits as we deem appropriate.
Even if you have successfully completed our enhanced due diligence, we may refuse to raise your limits without providing you with any explanation.

In such case, we may ask you to assist us in obtaining any additional authorization requested.
You are, and will remain, the sole responsible party in the legal agreement with your mobile operator and BLOCFONE and FONECOIN will be your agent to act on your behalf.
