AUTHORIZATION AND LIMITED POWER OF ATTORNEY
Customer hereby authorizes and instructs Apex Clearing to accept instructions from Customer to transfer funds from Customer’s brokerage account in the specified amount to pay for Customer’s cryptocurrency purchase(s) to an account in the name of Apex Crypto. These funds will be wired to an Apex Crypto bank account outside of [Introducing Broker Dealer] and Apex Clearing’s possession and control, which Customer hereby authorizes. Customer acknowledges that [Introducing Broker Dealer] and Apex Clearing do not have the ability to monitor or recall the funds after the funds have been wired to the Apex Crypto bank account. Customer understands that Apex Crypto is not a registered brokerdealer and, upon transfer, these funds will no longer have the protection of SIPC coverage nor will such funds be protected by the customer segregation rules of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Customer hereby authorizes and instructs Apex Clearing to accept all instructions to deposit funds into Customer’s brokerage account from the Apex Crypto account at the instruction of Apex Crypto. Customer agrees to hold [Introducing Broker Dealer] and Apex Clearing harmless in accepting and following instructions from Customer for the transfer of funds from Customer’s brokerage account to the Apex Crypto account and instructions from Apex Crypto for the transfer of funds into Customer’s brokerage account from the Apex Crypto account. This authorization and limited power of attorney will remain in force for a period of ten year(s) and shall be deemed renewed with each request to transfer money out of or into Customer’s brokerage account at [Introducing Broker Dealer]. Customer may revoke this power of attorney prospectively at any time.
