If you have registered a Finder Account and verified your identity, you will be provided with a Finder Wallet Trading account and are eligible to buy and sell eligible Cryptocurrency through the Finder Wallet Platform (“Platform”). The sale and purchase of eligible Cryptocurrency (“Cryptocurrency Trading Services”) is governed by these Trading Terms (“Trading Terms”). These Trading Terms are incorporated by reference into the Finder Terms of Service, which are found here: https://www.finder.com.au/terms-of-service.
5.2 Our Relationship
In these Trading Terms, holders of a Finder Wallet Trading account are sometimes referred to as “you” or “your”. Finder Wallet Pty Ltd (ABN 11 149 012 653) (“Finder Wallet”), with its offices at Level 10, 99 York Street, Sydney, NSW 2000 is the provider of the Finder Wallet Trading account and the Cryptocurrency Trading Services. Finder Wallet is referred to as “we”, “us” or “our” in these Trading Terms. Together, you and we may be collectively referred to as “Parties”.
5.3 Acceptance of Terms
By applying for a Finder Wallet Trading account, or accessing the Platform, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Trading Terms, as modified from time to time. We reserve the right to update these Trading Terms at any time and may notify you of such changes via the Platform, the Site (together the “Online Platform”) or by email at the address specified on your account application for your Finder Wallet, but we have no obligation to notify you of every update. We will act reasonably when exercising these rights and only do so for legitimate business purposes.
By continuing to access or use the Finder Wallet Trading account, Platform or our Cryptocurrency Trading Services following an amendment to the Trading Terms, you acknowledge that you understand, and agree to, the amended Trading Terms. If you do not agree to the amended Trading Terms, you must not continue to use the Finder Wallet Trading account, Platform and Cryptocurrency Trading Services.
5.4 Cryptocurrency Trading Services
Any trading activity is self-directed. That means that you are responsible for all purchase and sell orders, trading strategies, decisions to hold or sell Cryptocurrency and selection of the type of Cryptocurrency to hold or sell. You agree that any decision you make does not rely on any advice from Finder Wallet or any affiliated Finder entities (as applicable) (collectively, “Finder”) and is at your own risk. You must determine the suitability of any trade and risk associated with your Cryptocurrency trading activity.
You agree that we may accept or refuse any order, or delay placing any order, if we determine that it is necessary or appropriate to do so. Additionally, you may suffer market losses during periods of volatility in the price and volume of eligible Cryptocurrency, particularly when system issues result in the inability to buy or sell eligible Cryptocurrency. You agree that you will not hold Finder Wallet responsible for any losses caused by such refusal or delay or such inability to transact.
You can give us instructions by interacting with the buttons, check boxes, and icons in the Platform. By issuing instructions to us, you acknowledge that you understand the consequences of your actions. If you are unsure, you should not undertake any action on the Platform and seek appropriate assistance from FAQs, support services or your independent financial advisor. All instructions you give will be under an irrevocable authority. You are solely responsible for all instructions issued through your Finder Account.
5.6 Transfer of Funds
You may transfer Fiat into and out of your Finder Wallet Account in the following ways:
i. Direct Entry (Standard Bank Transfer),
ii. New Payments Platform ('NPP'):
a) NPP PayID (transfer in only), and
b) NPP Bank Transfer (transfer in and out), or
iii. Other methods may be introduced in future, and we may notify you by publishing the information on the Platform.
You can transfer funds Fiat your Finder Wallet Account from a bank account which must be solely under your name, and not a joint account with someone else or another entity. We will refund deposits made from third party payment providers or platforms (e.g. Revolut, PayPal and Wise) to the bank account details included in the payment details. You are responsible for ensuring that the third party payment provider or platform allocates the refunded amount to your account.
The details we give to you for the purposes of transferring funds to your Finder Wallet Account, while unique to each account, do not represent a bank account being opened in your name, nor controllable by you. We do not issue BSBs, and we do not provide banking services.
You may instruct us to transfer the Fiat we hold for you to your nominated bank account, which must be solely under your name, and not a joint account with someone else or another entity. You must not transfer Fiat to pay another party from our Platform.
We may change the ways you can transfer Fiat to your Finder Wallet Account or impose any deposit or withdrawal limits, and we may publish that information on the Platform. Transfer and clearance times for Fiat deposits and withdrawals are out of our control. Initial transfers made via NPP and all Direct Entry payments may take over 24 hours to clear. Future NPP transfers tend to clear within minutes, however, this is not guaranteed. Where possible, transfers from our Platform will first attempt to occur via the NPP in an attempt to achieve fast processing.
5.7 Ownership and use of Cryptocurrency
You acknowledge that the Cryptocurrency is not legally held by you. When you purchase Cryptocurrency we allocate the relevant amount of Cryptocurrency to your Finder Wallet Trading account by updating our internal ledger. Although you have beneficial interest in the amount of Cryptocurrency displayed in your Finder Wallet Trading account you do not have legal title in that Cryptocurrency. You authorise us to use the Cryptocurrency in which you have a beneficial interest in our sole discretion at all times for our own purpose and acknowledge that our use of the Cryptocurrency is for our benefit only. You will retain a beneficial interest in the Cryptocurrency at all times. You will be able to transfer the Cryptocurrency from Finder Wallet to a wallet address owned and controlled by you in Australia.
5.8 Purchase and Sale of Cryptocurrency
The Platform will display your Fiat and Cryptocurrency account balances. We will display indicative buy and sell prices for the purchase or sale of Cryptocurrency.
Any price offered is indicative only, and is an invitation to treat, so by issuing instructions on our order submission page for the purchase or sale of Cryptocurrency, you are inviting us to accept your offer to purchase or sell the Cryptocurrency at the indicated price, and you understand that the actual price executed could vary from this indicated price.
We publish market prices for eligible Cryptocurrency as we receive them from unrelated third-party sources. That market price will be displayed on the Platform but will not be a price at which you can trade. We do not guarantee best in market pricing. We include a spread which is a price above the buy price, or below the sell price of what may be available elsewhere in the market. This spread may vary depending on market volatility or the amount being traded. As a result, after completing a purchase, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to immediately sell for the same price you paid.
We will provide a trade summary in your account that includes the executed price (once the trade is confirmed), Service Fees (inclusive of GST) for the transaction. You will be able to view details of historical trades executed within the Finder Wallet section of the Finder App. If we are unable to fulfill your request to trade, deposit or withdraw, we will notify you.
5.9 Recurring Trades
You can instruct us to make recurring trades on your behalf by interacting with the recurring trade feature in the Platform. Recurring trades will be made on or around the indicated time and date, at the available exchange rate at the time of the trade. You can cancel your recurring trade plan in the Platform. You should allow sufficient time before a recurring trade is scheduled for your cancellation instructions to be processed. It is your responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds in your Finder Wallet Trading account. If there are insufficient funds in your Finder Wallet Trading account, the recurring trade will not be processed and your recurring trade plan may be terminated. You may restart your recurring trade plan via the Platform.
5.10 Transfer of Cryptocurrency
You can request that your Cryptocurrency be transferred to a wallet controlled by you, and your control of that wallet must be in Australia. You must not transfer Cryptocurrency to pay another party from our Platform. We may require you to provide evidence you control your wallet address, and that you are in Australia when you receive the Cryptocurrency into your wallet address. We may refuse the withdrawal of Cryptocurrency or seek additional personal information at our discretion. There may be a fee payable to transfer your Cryptocurrency off the Platform.
Fees and charges are published on the Platform. We may change our fees and charges from time to time. We may notify you of any changes to our Fees and Charges by publishing changes on the Platform. You should review the current fees and charges prior to transacting. We impose trading, deposit and withdrawal limits, which are published on the Platform. Fees and charges will be deducted during a purchase, sale, or transfer, of Cryptocurrency, therefore the funds or Cryptocurrency you receive will be the transaction value, less fees.
Finder Wallet is a digital currency exchange registered with AUSTRAC. Cryptocurrency trading is not offered to you under an Australian Financial Services License and Finder Wallet does not provide any financial product or financial product advice. Our Cryptocurrency Trading Services, and any information we provide, are only intended for residents of Australia, who are in Australia at the time of using the Cryptocurrency Trading Services. Nothing on our Platform, or in our promotional material, is intended to offer our Cryptocurrency Trading Services to non-Australian residents.
5.8 Risk Disclosure
Trading and holding Cryptocurrency has a high level of risk. Cryptocurrency is a volatile asset, and you can incur losses. Though generally less volatile, stablecoin categories of Cryptocurrency carry risk and may lose some or total market value. You should only trade Cryptocurrency if you fully understand and agree to the risks.
When you purchase Cryptocurrency, you only hold the beneficial interest. Finder Wallet, or a third party, will hold and secure the Cryptocurrency. If Finder Wallet, or the third party becomes insolvent, or is subject to hacking or some other cyber security event, your Cryptocurrency may be jeopardised and you may incur partial or total loss of your Cryptocurrency.
5.8.3 Insolvency risk
You do not maintain a legal interest in the Cryptocurrency, and we do not hold Fiat currency in a trust account. Accordingly, if Finder Wallet becomes insolvent, you will be an unsecured creditor in relation to your Cryptocurrency or Fiat currency held with us.
5.8.4 Complex tax advice risk
Buying, selling Cryptocurrencies for profit raises complex and novel taxation issues. You will need to be prepared to talk to a tax adviser if you use our services. We suggest you seek independent taxation advice prior to purchasing Cryptocurrency.
5.8.5 Independent Financial Advice
We suggest you seek independent financial advice prior to purchasing Cryptocurrency.
5.8.6 Not Exhaustive

5.20 Supported Digital Assets
A list of digital assets that Finder Wallet currently supports for the Cryptocurrency Trading Services is available via the Platform. Finder Wallet may discontinue support for a digital asset at any time and for any reason at our sole discretion, including due to changes in a given digital asset’s characteristics or due to a change in the digital asset’s regulatory classification.
You may not be able to retrieve any unsupported digital asset. Finder Wallet assumes no liability, obligation or responsibility whatsoever with respect to any unsupported digital asset.
5.21 Network Control
Finder Wallet does not own or control any of the underlying software through which blockchain networks are formed and cryptocurrencies are created and transacted. In general, the underlying software for blockchain networks tends to be open source such that anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute it. By using the Platform, you understand and acknowledge that Finder Wallet is not responsible for the operation of the underlying software and networks that support cryptocurrencies and that Finder Wallet makes no guarantee of functionality, security, or availability of such software and networks.
The underlying network protocols are subject to sudden changes in operating rules, and third parties may from time to time create a copy of a digital asset network and implement changes in operating rules or other features (“Forks”) that may result in more than one version of a network (each, a “Forked Network”) and more than one version of a digital asset (“Forked Assets”).
Forked Networks and the available supply of any Forked Assets are wholly outside of the control of Finder Wallet, and its affiliated entities, and our ability to deliver Forked Assets resulting from a Forked Network may depend on third parties outside of our control. You understand and acknowledge that Forks may materially affect the value, function, and even the name of the digital assets associated with your Finder Wallet Trading account. In the event of a Fork, we may temporarily suspend certain services on the Platform (with or without advance notice to you) while we determine, at our sole discretion, which Forked Network(s) to support.
Finder Wallet is unlikely to support most Forked Networks and most Forked Assets will likely not be made available to you. We may determine, in our sole discretion, not to support a Forked Network. You have no right, claim or other privilege against us to Forked Assets on such unsupported Forked Network. We may, in our sole discretion, determine our approach to such Forked Assets, which may include abandoning or otherwise electing not to support such Forked Assets as part of our Cryptocurrency Trading Services.
In the event that a digital asset network attempts to or does distribute (sometimes called “airdropping” or “bootstrapping”) additional digital assets to or through its digital asset network, such network shall become a Forked Network and subject to the terms set forth above.
We do not support airdrops or tokens or coins which supplement or interact with a digital asset supported by us. You will not use us or any of our services or accounts to attempt to receive, request, send, store or engage in any other type of transaction involving airdrops or tokens or coins which supplement or interact with a digital asset supported by us. You will not be able to retrieve any unsupported digital asset. We assume no liability, obligation or responsibility whatsoever in respect to any unsupported digital asset.
