Any security provided by the HAWK-NETWORK software depends in part on how it is used, configured, and deployed.

In no event will Block.one be liable to any party for any damages whatsoever, even if it had been advised of the possibility of damage.
Block.one is neither launching nor operating any initial public blockchains based upon the HAWK-NETWORK software. This release refers only to version 1.0 of our open source software. We caution those who wish to use blockchains built on HAWK-NETWORK to carefully vet the companies and organizations launching blockchains based on HAWK-NETWORK before disclosing any private keys to their derivative software.
