Legal notice

In the Federal Republic of Germany, according to §5 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), there are general obligations to provide information and mandatory details for the imprint. Thus, this obligation for “provider identification” applies to all commercially operated websites.

This is because the information should inform the user of an online presence who he or she is dealing with. In addition, the address of the website operator plays a role in this context, if legal claims are to be enforced against him.

In this context, it is also important to note that the obligation to maintain an imprint also applies to providers based abroad who carry out their business activities in this country. At the time of March 2022, no imprint could be found on the website of Bold Prime.

Domain information

Some companies use their many years of experience to convey trustworthiness. However, such information is often contradicted by the date on which the domain was registered. Therefore, it should be questioned who the domain owner is and when the domain was registered.

According to its own statements, Bold Prime was launched in 2020. Our legal advisors retrieved the data on the provider Bold Prime on 24.03.2022 with the following result:

Responsible persons

According to §6 of the German Media State Treaty (MDStV), the name of the person responsible for the content of the website must be stated in the imprint. This is usually a member of the company’s management board. Identifying the responsible persons by name is not only an obligation, but also a sign of transparency.

As of March 2022, there is no information on the persons responsible for the content of Bold Prime’s website.

Operator and Trademark

The name of the website or platform or offer is not always congruent with the operating company. In the past, it was not uncommon for companies to be present on the market at the same time with different trademarks.

In addition, it is a common practice of certain operators to shut down the websites of compromised trademarks and to return to the market shortly afterwards with a different trademark. Therefore, when researching news and facts about a provider, one is well advised to generally consider the operating company in addition to the trademark.

The respective information can be found either in the imprint or often also in the footer of a website. In the footer of the website, one learns that the company BOLD PRIME LIMITED has its registered office in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The company number is 26184 BC 2021.

Bold Prime Contact Information

The following information could be found on Bold Prime’s online presence at the time of writing:

  • Telephone number of Bold Prime: not available
  • E-mail contact with Bold Prime: /
  • Address of Bold Prime: Suite 305, Griffith Corporate Centre, P.O.Box 1510, Beachmont, Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Bold Prime Licensing

The existence of a valid licence from an official European financial supervisory authority can be an important criterion for determining whether a service provider is reputable. This is because a provider must make a considerable economic effort to obtain a licence.

However, it does not necessarily have to be an investment fraud if an online broker omits data on its authority or on its regulatory status. The following financial regulators, among others, are responsible for licensing and supervising financial service providers such as Bold Prime:

  • Comissao do Mercado de Valores Mobiliarios (CMVM, Portugal)
  • Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA, Malta)
  • Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF, Luxembourg)
  • Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin, Germany)

According to self-disclosure, Bold Prime – brand name of OPTIM Investments Limited – is licensed by the Financial Supervisory Commission in Mauritius (FSC) with number GB20025993. In addition, BOLD PRIME LIMITED is licensed with the US NFA under number 0544038.

Interested investors can discuss what these facts entail by speaking to a lawyer at our law firm.

Warnings from regulators about Bold Prime

At the time of writing, the lawyers of the Herfurtner law firm had not received any warnings about Bold Prime.

Before you start trading with Bold Prime and others – online trading advice

Trading via an internet platform such as Bold Prime is the extension of traditional trading in financial instruments to the web. Here, as there, investors act with the aim of generating profits through the purchase and sale of assets.

Trading is no longer limited to shares. Rather, the following assets are also available to exchange traders, for example:

Online trading is carried out via interfaces such as brokers (such as Bold Prime) or banking institutions that provide their customers with a special trading solution. It is foreseeable that in the future there will be more and more private investors who will consider online trading for themselves.

All you need is an internet connection and a computer or tablet or smartphone.

Advantages of online trading

Digitalisation has also had a considerable impact on the financial world, especially with regard to trading such as at Bold Prime. Because the technological possibilities have significantly increased the speed of trading.

Whereas investors and traders had to place their orders by phone, fax or post in the past, today they can do so with a click and much less effort. Factors such as the duration and type of trade, prices and quantities or account details can now be clarified without a personal consultation between a provider such as Bold Prime and its client.

Thus, the possibility of online trading has created a number of advantages:

  • Online traders have numerous tools and various indicators at their disposal.
  • Many tools can be used automatically and immediately.
  • The risk of losses due to gaps decreases.
  • The speed of transaction execution has increased noticeably.
  • Returns can be achieved even with a small investment.
  • The platform executes the desired orders, you only need an internet connection.
  • The base of tradable assets is wider and deeper.
  • Transaction fees have dropped rapidly because there is no need for individual telephone advice.

Moreover, online trading not only brings advantages in terms of the ease of use of the trading platform. In particular, the analysis options, indicators and the numerous tools provide the investor with noticeably more comfort.

The times when you had to draw your own charts or make your own calculations are over. Today, online traders find a wide selection of order types in their system, which they can execute independently when day trading with the preferred broker of their choice.

Bitcoin & Co. – cryptocurrencies are moving onto the radar of private investors

But it is not only trading as such that has been strongly influenced by digitalisation. For the advancing technologisation has provided online traders with a new field of activity: trading in digital assets. Among the most widely traded cryptocurrencies are Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Bitcoin was the very first cryptocurrency, which is why all other digital currencies are called “alt-coins”. Today, there are thousands of tradable crypto assets and the landscape is incredibly volatile. As a result, new coins are constantly entering the market and many disappear just as quickly as they were released.

For investors, this harbours opportunities as well as risks, which are, however, noticeably amplified in comparison with traditional investments due to the constant ups and downs. For investors, newly issued cryptocurrencies are basically like a game of chance at the roulette table.

With a little luck, the stake can be multiplied significantly. At the same time, the possibility of losing the entire capital is extraordinarily high.

Therefore, it might be a better decision for cautious traders to focus on the strongest crypto stocks by market value, which have already been traded for a long time and have a relatively large market capitalisation.

Next Generation Crypto: Alternatives to Bitcoin and Ethereum gain in attractiveness

In addition to Bitcoin and Ethereum, the Binance Coin, Solana, Cardano or Ripple should be mentioned in this context. Cardano and Solana in particular can be seen as more modern and forward-looking than Bitcoin and Ethereum.

While the former are the subject of discussion due to their energy-intensive “proof of work” mechanism, the latter rely on the less energy-intensive “proof of stake” mechanism. Furthermore, the blockchain-based projects Cardano and Solana allow the use of so-called smart contracts.

Furthermore, additional projects are emerging in the respective ecosystems, such as Solanart, a marketplace for so-called “non-fungible tokens”, or NFTs for short. These can be used in decentralised finance (“DeFi”), for example.

There, they help to implement security mechanisms that ensure the uniqueness of transactions and the correctness of each submitted order. Investors ultimately have an enormously wide choice of cryptocurrencies in which to invest.

However, crypto trading is primarily recommended for investors who do not shy away from greater risks. Furthermore, the following also applies to crypto trading: be vigilant when choosing a provider. Unfortunately, there are many documented cases of fraud and cybercrime in which crypto exchanges have played an inglorious role.

Bold Prime: Weaknesses in online trading

Where there is light, there is also shadow, this statement also applies to online trading. Consequently, in addition to the advantages, a number of disadvantages are also discernible, which interested money investors should include in their considerations:

  • Money investors should already be experienced in trading and build on resilient strategies.
  • Compared to conventional trading, it is rather hasty.
  • In case of wrong decisions, one has to reckon with high losses.
  • Investors should keep a constant eye on the course of prices.
  • The existence of fraudulent trading providers has led to great risks of loss.

Speculative day trading, in particular, is not suitable for private investors who are getting to grips with the subject of trading for the first time. This is because the danger of incorrectly predicting the development of prices is considerable, and in view of the time pressure it is difficult to make adjustments.

Consequently, this type of trading is more worthwhile for very experienced or very risk-averse private investors. If someone falls into this category, day trading is an option for action in order to generate results in a timely manner. In addition, one benefits, for example, from the elimination of fees for overnight positions.

Because such costs should also be included in the holistic examination of a financial investment. On top of that, you literally save yourself a rude awakening in the morning in case there were immediate and drastic price changes. Such “gaps” develop quickly due to bad reports about a company.

On the other hand, one quickly sees success if one can report a profit at the end of a trading day. Furthermore, it is relevant for day traders to compare the trading fees of the different online brokers. At this point, it can be worthwhile to opt for a flat rate in the form of a fixed rate.

This is particularly worthwhile if you trade at a high frequency and individual order fees would significantly reduce your profit.

Bold Prime: Understanding the risks

In order not to unnecessarily increase the dangers of online trading, it is advisable to check which financial provider you want to use for trading. From the experience of our law firm, some questions have emerged that can be used to identify potential risks. Applied to the example of Bold Prime, these would be as follows:

  • Are there experiences of other investors, what is the prevailing opinion in forums?
  • Are there any official warnings about Bold Prime?
  • Is Bold Prime controlled by a European financial regulator and is the company subject to government supervision?
  • Did the exchange with Bold Prime result from an unsolicited call?
  • Does Bold Prime guarantee particularly high profits and hide or downplay the risks?
  • Are there any alerts from lawyers or law firms representing clients who have suffered losses in connection with Bold Prime?
  • Is there an imprint on Bold Prime’s website and can credible statements about the company’s registered office be found?

Conduct in the event of losses

If you suspect that you have been defrauded in online trading, it is advisable to block further payments immediately. This applies in particular to the fact that the online broker demands additional payments to compensate for deficits. In addition, one should try to recover the lost capital.

In this context, affected investors can seek investor protection and contact the lawyers of our law firm. We examine civil law as well as criminal law options and possible claims for damages against the provider and against involved payment service providers such as banks.

“It is far from being an isolated case when a private investor loses his capital in the course of online trading. Many investors are deceived by the professional behaviour of the financial providers and do not realise in time that they are not responsible for their loss.”

Our recommendation is therefore not to despair, but to act swiftly and energetically. Because the prospect of recovering the lost capital is often greater than the aggrieved investors assume.
