What investment services and advice can you provide me?

ProCap does not offer advice, recommendations or strategies involving digital asset securities, and does not monitor the performance in your account except for its own risk purposes. For more information about our services, please visit our website at https://www.Prometheum.com.
Conversation starters: Given my financial situation, should I choose a Special Broker Dealer to Custody my crypto asset securities? ? Why or why not?
If you make all of your own investment decisions, have a high risk tolerance and desire to custody digital asset securities at ProCap, then choosing a firm as a custodian such as ours may be a good choice. As previously mentioned, ProCap does not provide recommendations or advice about whether to buy or sell digital asset securities, on account types, investment strategies or provide monitoring of account performance.
What fees will I pay?
As a special purpose broker-dealer, we will charge you a disclosed fee for custody of digital asset securities in your account. Fees are also allocated to you at the time you deposit or withdraw cash or DAS from your custodial account. All fees we charge are disclosed.
Your trading venue may separately charge you fees for trades placed on their system and you will be responsible for such fees. You will pay fees and costs whether you make or lose money on your investments. Fees and costs will reduce any amount of money you make on your investments over time. Please make sure you understand what fees and costs you are paying.
Conversation starters: Help me understand how these fees and costs might affect my investments. If I give you $10,000 to invest, how much will go to fees and costs, and how much will be invested for me?

Prometheum Inc, our parent company and our affiliates have a great interest in the growth and adoption of the trading, clearing, settlement and custody of digital asset securities underpinned by distributed ledger technology, or blockchain.
Our digital asset security operations currently include our affiliate Prometheum ATS, Inc. (“ProATS”) operating an ATS. Our affiliate ATS is designed to maximize efficiencies and investor experience in the burgeoning landscape of digital asset securities. ProATS does not provide recommendations or advice about whether to buy or sell digital asset securities, on account types, investment strategies or provide monitoring of account performance.
Our other affiliate, Manorhaven Capital, LLC, is currently not conducting digital asset securities business. As a result, we do not believe that the roles played by our affiliates presents a conflict of interest because all trading by you on our ATS platform is entirely self-directed.
Conversation starters: How might your conflicts of interest affect me, and how will you address them?
A conflict of interest is a potential situation in which ProCap would engage in a transaction or activity where our interest is materially adverse to your interest. The mere presence of a conflict of interest does not imply that harm to your interests will occur, but it is important that we acknowledge the presence of potential conflicts. Moreover, our regulatory obligations require that we establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to address conflicts of interest associated with the brokerage services being provided to you. ProCap addresses these relationships and a full description of our business by making available all of the disclosures and other materials in the “Disclosure Library” located on our website https://www.prometheum.com/disclosures.
