What are the legal implications of clicking acknowledge below the following statement: "By clicking acknowledge below, I certify that I am not a resident of XYZ."
The context for this, if it helps, is in the cryptocurrency space. There are a lot of initial coin offerings that are required to restrict participation based on residency. In addition to IP-based blocking, they typically require participants to "certify" their non-residency in prohibited countries. What is the legal meaning of "certify" in this context? For example, if one were to certify a false statement, would it be a crime?
