  1. Informal Dispute Resolution: Member shall cooperate in good faith to resolve any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of, relating to or in connection with the T&C, including with respect to the formation, applicability, breach, termination, validity or enforceability thereof ("Dispute"). If the parties to any Dispute are unable to resolve a Dispute within ninety (90) days of notice of such Dispute being received by all parties thereof, such Dispute shall be finally settled by Binding Arbitration, as defined hereinafter.

  2. Binding Arbitration: Any Dispute not resolved within 90 days as set forth hereinbefore shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) rules in effect at the time of the arbitration, except as they may be modified herein or by mutual agreement of the parties to such arbitration. The number of arbitrators shall be one who shall be selected by the parties to the arbitration. The seat, or legal place, of arbitration shall be London, England. The language to be used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. The governing law of the T&C, for the purposes only of the interpretation and constructions of the provisions of the Constitution, and the contractual relations created thereby, shall be the laws of Anguilla.

Judgment upon the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets. Without prejudice to any indemnification provision of the T&C, each party to arbitration shall pay their respective attorneys' fees and expenses.

  3. No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions: Any dispute arising out of or related to the T&C shall be personal to the parties to the arbitration and shall not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. There shall be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals.

  4. The provisions of the T&C relating to Dispute Resolution shall become operational only in the event that the relevant dispute does not fall within the ambit and/or jurisdiction of the dispute resolution provisions set out in the Constitution of the eosDAC. To the extent that any dispute falls within the ambit and/or jurisdiction of the Constitution of the eosDAC, whether exclusively or concurrently with the T&C, Member shall first and exclusively seek dispute resolution pursuant to the dispute resolution provisions of the Constitution.
