We also highly recommend the usage of hardware wallets for bigger payments. The risk of getting one's funds drawn by phishing gets smaller if you have an extra security device and more time to actually think of what you're signing.

On-Chain crypto usage demands experience and knowledge. If you're not familiar with this technology, we don't recommend using it. Crypto prices fluctuate which means that funds may increase or sink in valuation after purchasing. Every user has to handle that on their own. We're not financial advisors and people should seek independent professional advice regarding finance. Inproper handling of crypto opens up security flaws, which might lead to loss. We're not responsible for users on-chain transactions.
