SelfCoin A platform to launch your own token economy 1. Abstract SelfCoin is a blockchain-based platform, providing individuals in needs of issuing tokens with a systematic solution, including token issuance, exchanges and other necessary supporting facilities, such as personal credit rating model and risk evaluating model. Users can issue Individual Tokens on the platform for various purposes. SelfCoin takes full advantage of blockchain technology, including right confirmation, high liquidity and high transparency, and creates an entirely new market: capital can get rid of the limitation of traditional venture capital and invest directly in individuals. Everyone is able to create his or her own token, as a result, the current economic system will be optimized to a great extent. 2. Token Economy Landscape Blockchain solves the double spending problem, enabling the Internet to not only transmit information but also transmit value. In a decentralized blockchain network, token incentives, rewards and penalty scheme together shape users’ behavior in this economic system. Token economy is such a well designed economic system for the Internet to transmit value based on blockchain technology. Token economy is an indivisible part of blockchain technology. For example, the intellectual property of superstars is one of the most valuable assets in blockchain. The stars can strengthen his or her connection to the fans through issuing tokens, reducing the intermediaries costs and increasing the efficiency for communication. Fi all the star’s toke e o o e ha es the alue of his or her intellectual property. For another example, students can gain more resources for his or her career development via issuing tokens, and meanwhile investors can gain investment returns by sharing the future of the students. These
tale ts’s toke e o o shares their future alue a d i reases their future alue. SelfCoin platform creates an economic model of individuals tokens, which is introduced to the world for the first time. - Each individual can issue cryptocurrency - Cryptocurrency can be traded freely on the platform - Platform provides supporting facilities for application scenarios of cryptocurrency On the other hand, SelfCoin platform could apply to so many different types of people based on above functionalists. - Stars for sharing and increasing their personal IPs. - Rising stars for gaining resources and creating their IPs. - Young talents for gaining resources and caring community. 3. Technical Structure of SelfCoin Business Digital Assets SelfCoin platform could issue millions of tokens on SelfCoin mainnet, like ethereum issues ERC20 tokens. While all these tokens are native digital assets instead of contract-based digital assets. Compared with contract-based tokens, native digital assets are more safer since there are no possible bugs, which is almost unavoidable considering the difficulties to update smart contract. In terms of security, SelfCoin issuance mechanism should lose partial programmable capability on digital assets, however, later SelfCoin smart contract will describe how SelfCoin mitigate the programmable capability. Another advantage of native digital assets is its performance. There is no need to load smart contract visual machine to operate tokens, so the transaction per seconds is much faster. There is no competing in gaining hashrate among different contracts and then more kinds of digital assets can be issued. The abbreviation for Individuals tokens could be 3 to 16 characters, and SelfCoin platform could support easily one token for everyone on the earth. At the same time, all these tokens share similar transaction rate with SelfCoins. Exchange
The exchange supports millions of digital currency transactions and has millisecond-level transaction matching speeds. To reduce the trading barrier, our team will develop a quantitative trading robot based on AI technology to accelerate trading speed, increase trading volume, as well as cater to different trading habits. The graph below presents a high-level structure of Individual Token exchange. The most important part of the exchange technology is the high scalability of the matching engine cluster. With the business growth, more matching engine could be deployed automatically. The trading pairs between SelfCoins and Individuals Tokens could also be supported easily since all Individuals Tokens follow the same interface on SelfCoin platform. With these two key issues resolved, Individual Tokens exchange could easily grow to support millions of different tokens. Well-designed and intuitive GUI and API will improve user experience, and high performance message queue working together with persistence and log capability will provide a low latency and stable message communication and traceability. Last but not least, the database needs well-tuning and index design to avoid becoming the performance bottleneck. GUI API Clearing and Settlement Authorization Rule-Based Rule-Based …… Rule-Based Message Queue Asynchronized transaction persistence Log Database Layer The chart below describes the transaction process on SelfCoin exchange platform.

Request ask queue to match the transaction 5. Return the information 6. Match the transaction to determine partial or completed match Smart Contract Although SelfCoin platform doesn’t use smart contract to issue cryptocurrencies, smart contract is still important. On the one hand, SelfCoin platform plays the role of intermediary for individuals to raise funds, and smart contract can ensure transparency and fairness of that process. Unlike ERC20 contract, SelfCoin platform smart contract could involve multiple Individuals Tokens. It is much easier for users to interact a bundle of Individual Tokens within one smart contract. On the other hand, when the issuers give back to the investors, smart contract can greatly increase the efficiency by loading issuers’ confessed credit information or ratings and automatically trigger the distribution of tokens to the investors. Unlike other smart contracts, SelfCoin smart contract doesn’t need coding and programming. On the basis of Turing Completeness, users can drag and drop all logical models to compose a user-defined smart contract on the platform, which substantially reduces the technological barrier for users and thus expands the application scope of smart contract.

Satisfy the credit rating and issue Backers the token. Backers Backers SelfSell Platform Smart Contract SelfSell proposes a new revolutionary platform by merging several innovations that are crowdfunding, crowdlending and initial coin offerings, in order to provide key individuals with great potential (talents, rising artists, Internet celebrities and promising individuals in general) a new disruptive way to realize their dreams and ambitions. SelfSell gives them access to the booming market of ICOs, where they will find backers to fund them in exchange of a personal reward, which can be future services or advantages decided by the individuals.

SelfSell Structure Explanation A1. Individuals (Dave & Mary) want to issue their own Individuals Tokens, they go onto SelfSell Platform and fulfill KYC/AML forms. A2. After verification of their KYC/AML information, they get access to SelfSell Platform Credit Evaluation tool for personal credit rating, based on big data regarding their personal background and credit background. A3. SelfSell Platform publishes the credit rating scores and address it to SelfCoins holders through the SelfSell Platform. At this stage, SelfSell Platform decides to refuse access to SelfSell market to Dave due to poor rating scores (either because of his credit background or because of his past experiences) in order to
protect SelfCoins holders, and drafts a smart contract with Mary, which has passed validly through SelfSell background verification, based only on the conditions Mary wants to offer to SelfCoins holders (the better her score is, the better conditions she will get from the market). A4. After collecting all information from "SelfSell Platform authority" and "Credit Evaluation", SelfSell Platform Individuals Token Offering is ready to issue Mary ICO, keeping SelfCoins holders informed of the results of her background scores. B1. To become a valid backer on SelfSell Platform, backers need to pass KYC and AML process successfully. B2.

While all SelfCoins holders are recommended to protect and securely store their private keys, each holder is responsible for safeguarding the private keys applicable to their own wallets. SelfCoin team has noted that several ICOs have been victims from hackers and phishing attempt for potential purchasers. Please note that the ICO will only take place on SelfCoin Website. SelfCoin team will not solicit any subscription by email or phone from its potential SelfCoins purchasers. In case of doubt, please contact us at [email protected] Please be informed that SelfCoin team will never ask SelfCoins holders to provide by phone, email or through social media, their SelfCoins wallet private key. SelfCoins purchasers will assume full responsibility for the consequences of any theft, malfunction or misuse of SelfCoin Platform or SelfCoins acquired, as a result of a lack of security or any use by any person to whom SelfCoins purchaser has provided his credentials, intentionally or not. b. SelfCoin Platform and Blockchain security Hackers, criminal groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with SelfCoin Platform or the availability of SelfCoins in several ways including, but not limited to, denial of service attacks, Sybil attacks, malware attacks or consensus-based attacks. Besides, SelfCoin Platform is based on open source software. There is therefore a risk that third parties, may intentionally or unintentionally introduce weaknesses or bugs into the SelfCoin Platform code, by interfering with the use of it or causing loss of some or all SelfCoins. Moreover, advancement in cryptography technologies and techniques, including but not limited to code cracking, developments of artificial intelligence and/or quantum computers, could be identified as risks to all cryptography-based systems including SelfCoin blockchains and SelfCoin Platform. When such technologies and/or techniques are applied to SelfCoin Blockchain, adverse outcomes such as theft, loss, disappearance, destruction, devaluation or other compromises of the SelfCoins held by any person may result. The absolute security of SelfCoin Platform and SelfCoin Blockchain cannot be guaranteed as the future of cryptography or security innovations is unpredictable.
SelfCoins purchasers accept and acknowledge the risk to see the SelfCoin Blockchain compromised, causing a loss of value of SelfCoins or the loss of part or all SelfCoins issued during SelfCoin ICO. c. SelfCoin ICO proceeds security There may be attempts to steal the SelfCoin ICO proceeds collected from SelfCoins purchasers. While SelfCoin will endeavor to adopt industry best practices to keep the proceeds safe (including but not limited to the use of cold storage), successful cyber thefts may still occur. Any loss of SelfCoin ICO proceeds arising from such theft(s) may impact the ability of SelfCoin to fund the development or maintenance of SelfCoin Platform and SelfCoin Project. 2. Legal and regulatory risks a. SelfCoin ICO legal and regulatory risks Blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and projects financing through cryptocurrencies have been the subject of close scrutiny by various regulatory bodies around the world. Given the lack of cryptocurrency qualifications in most countries, each SelfCoins purchaser is strongly advised to carry out a legal and tax analysis concerning the purchase and ownership of SelfCoins according to their own nationality and place of residence. SelfCoin Project has not been registered under any jurisdiction to date. Crypto-assets may be overseen by the regulatory authorities of a number of jurisdictions globally which may cause SelfCoin Platform to be subject to scrutiny, which may conduct to injunctions or sanctions over SelfCoin Project. SelfCoin may receive notices, queries, warnings, requests or rulings from one or more regulatory authorities upon short notices, or may even be ordered to suspend or terminate any action in connection with the SelfCoin ICO or the SelfCoin Blockchain as a whole without prior notices. The planning, development, marketing, promotion, execution of SelfCoin Project or the SelfCoin ICO may be seriously affected, hindered, postponed or terminated as a result of regulators actions. SelfCoins could be deemed from time to time as a virtual commodity, digital asset or even securities or currency in various jurisdictions and therefore could be prohibited from being traded or held in certain jurisdictions pursuant to local regulations.
There is no guarantee that SelfCoin will be able to maintain a legal status in all jurisdictions addressed today by SelfCoin ICO at all times, SelfCoin Project may even never come to fruition or may have to be abandoned, leaving the issued SelfCoins issued without any use. b. Individuals ICOs legal and regulatory risks Please note that under several jurisdiction laws and regulations, Individuals ICOs may be considered as regulated activity that can only be pursued by regulated or registered entities, as it may be considered, under certain circumstances, as loans. Therefore, SelfCoin may have to register as a credit institution or under any other available status, allowing it to pursue the development of its activity and in order to be able to propose Individuals ICOs onto the SelfCoin Platform. Moreover, it has to be noted that in certain jurisdiction, such as France, only the following structures can carry out credit transactions on a habitual basis: o A credit institution or a financing company licensed for such purpose by the European Central Bank or the relevant French authorities; and o A credit institution having its registered office in a member state of the European Union or in a state which is a party to the treaty on European Economic Area if the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution has been duly notified in advance by the European Central Bank or the relevant authority of such state and provided that it carries out only those credit transactions which is authorized to carry out in its own state. Therefore, Individuals ICOs may not be available in every country where SelCoin ICO participation is proposed, depending on their analysis by regulators. SelfCoin will apply and make reasonable efforts to comply with all necessary regulatory prerequisites in order to pursue its activity. Depending on the profile of the individuals, different conditions may also apply to comply with laws and regulations. SelfCoin intends to develop legal engineering after the SelfCoin ICO in order to determine the legal framework under which Individuals ICOs will take place, and if needed, to comply, if reasonably possible, with any regulatory provisions applying to pursue its activities. As SelfCoin provides a platform allowing individuals to get funded in exchange of what could be assimilated to a form of repayment (even if it does not answer to traditional loans characteristics), SelfCoin Platform may need to partner with one of the institutions allowed to propose this kind of products, in order to be authorized to proceed (or to obtain one of these status). SelfCoin wants to recall potential purchasers of SelfCoins that a part of the funds collected through SelfCoin ICO will be dedicated to the legal structure of Individuals
ICOs (structuring of the UI interface, legal study on the status of these ICOs, and subjects to change in function of the legal analysis to be realized). For the sake of Individuals ICO structuring, it has to be noted that SelfCoin is solely responsible for deciding whether to provide Individuals ICOs opportunities to SelfCoins owners, within the technical, legal, economic or other constraints imposed by third parties or by the co pa itself o its operatio s. The SelfCoi s pur haser’s attention is therefore drawn to the fact that purchasing SelfCoins does not confer automatic access to the Platform, and to the Individuals ICO. Some of them, notably due to application of consumer law to individual issuers, could not be accessible to every SelfCoins owner. SelfCoins may not be used before the effective creation of the Platform. SelfCoins will not be reimbursed in the event that the platform is not ultimately developed, or does not operate on a permanent basis. SelfCoins purchasers acknowledge that this is a significant risk that they accept. 3. Technological risks Due to the technically complex nature of SelfCoin Project, SelfCoin could face difficulties that may be unforeseeable and/or unsolvable. Accordingly, the development of SelfCoin Platform could fail, terminate or be delayed at any time for any reason (including but not limited to lack of funds or legal constraints). Development failure or termination may render SelfCoins worthless and/or obsolete. In addition, some of the SelfCoin Platform features are currently under development. As a consequence, SelfCoins purchasers accept that the development may not fully succeed, that SelfCoin Platform may never be released and operational, even though SelfCoin makes reasonable efforts to deliver SelfCoin Platform in time. The SelfCoin Platform may be subject to software and/or technical risks, or some of the features presented herein may never be installed on the platform. SelfCoin team has chosen to develop its Platform on the AChain protocol and will switch to its own proprietary protocol, with the help of AChain technologies soon after SelfCoin ICO, for its technical support, after having audited its performances in terms of exchange protocol and stability technologies. Therefore, Achain appears to offer to SelfSell the best support for its platform, as it should be able to manage a traffic correspondent to hundreds of thousands of simultaneous Individuals ICOs. SelfCoins purchasers shall note that any malfunction, unplanned function, or unexpected operation on the Achain protocol (and then SelfCoin protocol) may cause the Platform or SelfCoins to malfunction or to operate in a way that is not expected. ACT, Achain account unit, may itself lose value in a similar way to SelfCoins, or in any other a . I su h a ase, or if A hai ’s de elop e t does ot e eeds SelfCoin expectations, leading to a bottleneck for SelfCoin’s de elop e t, SelfCoin will consider switching its underlying platform from Achain Blockchain to another
blockchain services supplier, in order to ensure the quality of service SelfCoin intend to grant its clients, in terms of stability, rapidity and data security. 4. Violation of Privacy or Data Protection Laws SelfCoin is subject to applicable privacy and data protection laws and regulations. Any violations of laws and regulations relating to the safeguarding of private information could subject SelfCoin to injunctions and/or sanctions. Any such violations could adversely affect the ability of SelfCoin to operate the SelfCoin Blockchain, which could have a material adverse effect on the SelfCoin Blo k hai ’s operations as well as the utility of SelfCoins. 5. Amendment or termination of the SelfCoin Project a. Amendment of the SelfCoin Project At the date of these T&C, SelfCoin is still seeking legal advice on a number of matters including but not limited to the regulatory environment of Individuals ICOs and legal and regulatory requirements to be fulfilled by the platform to implement notably Individuals ICOs and SelfCoin Platform exchange. Pending such advice, some or all aspects of these T&C, the SelfCoin White Paper and other related marketing materials may need to be amended accordingly. While SelfCoin will aim to minimize the impact of such changes on the SelfCoin Project, SelfCoins purchaser should be aware of the risks associated with possible changes, which may have adverse effects on the benefits and legitimacy of SelfCoin Project. Also, SelfCoin ICO may be terminated pursuant to the conditions mentioned in the T&C herein. b. Termination of the SelfCoin Project Without being contrary to anything contained herein, SelfCoin shall be entitled to terminate SelfCoin ICO if any of the following events occurs: • With or without reasons, SelfCoin elects to cease the development of the SelfCoin Blockchain prior, during or after any step of the SelfCoin ICO by making an announcement; • The development of SelfCoin Blockchain is required by any applicable law or regulations to terminate before, during or after any step of the SelfCoin ICO; • SelfCoin being notified by any government in any jurisdiction that SelfCoin ICO is under investigation, prohibited, banned or forced to cease; and • The development of SelfCoin Blockchain discontinues prior to the SelfCoins issue due to any force majeure event and SelfCoin cannot reasonably expect resumption will take place within six (6) months.
SelfCoin shall retain its full discretion to declare termination of SelfCoin ICO upon the occurrence of any of the above events while SelfCoins purchasers shall not be entitled to object to or deny the decision made by SelfCoin. Notwithstanding the termination of SelfCoin ICO: • the representations and warranties made by each SelfCoins purchaser shall remain true, complete, accurate and non-misleading; and • the risk factors as set forth in the present Article 5 of the T&C shall survive. 6. Loss or inexistence of SelfCoins utility functions Resulting of the elements mentioned above, and although we anticipate that SelfCoins holders will benefit in the future from certain utility functions of SelfCoin Platform, SelfCoins will have no such utility at issuance. Although SelfCoin will endeavor to develop the SelfCoin Blockchain and apply utility functions for the benefit of SelfCoins holders, there can be no assurance that the SelfCoins will ever provide any functional utility. 7. Risk of capital loss The value of SelfCoins is not guaranteed. Purchasing SelfCoins entails a significant capital risk, which SelfCoins purchasers acknowledge and accept. These SelfCoins do not belong to regulated financial institutions and the loss of some or all of their value is not insured. 8. SelfCoin governance and resources SelfCoin team will have broad discretion in the use of SelfCoin ICO proceeds and purchasers of SelfCoins will have to rely upon their judgment. At present, the SelfCoin ICO proceeds are expected to be used to fund the technical development, promotion, legal structuring, marketing, ecosystem building and on-going maintenance of the SelfCoin Platform and Individuals ICOs. While SelfCoin’s dire tors endeavor to spend these funds as effectively as possible, any failure to effectively deploy the sale proceeds could have a material adverse effect on the development of SelfCoin Blockchain and the utility of the SelfCoins. SelfCoin company does not have substantial resources by itself. SelfCoin does not have any legally binding commitment from any person to contribute additional capital or to make any loan to it. If SelfCoin was to be unable to fund its operations in the future, or if SelfCoin was to become the subject of a bankruptcy or other insolvency proceeding, SelfCoin might be unable to continue to operate the SelfCoin Blockchain, the SelfCoin Project and the utility of SelfCoins could be materially adversely affected.
9. SelfCoin Project attractiveness and effect on decentralized blockchain technologies The utility and benefits of SelfCoin Project depends on the popularity of the SelfCoin Blockchain. SelfCoins may not be popular, prevalent or widely transacted soon after the SelfCoin ICO. SelfCoins may remain marginalized in the long run, appealing to only a minimal fraction of the general public. The absence of active users and low level of commercial utilization may negatively affect the long-term development and future of SelfCoin Project. After the SelfCoin ICO, SelfCoin will not be responsible for the subsequent circulation of SelfCoins. There will be no obligation for SelfCoin to redeem, repurchase or acquire any SelfCoins from any SelfCoins holder. There can be no guarantee or assurance that there will be a market or marketplace where holders may readily buy or sell SelfCoins. Due to regulation issues, some jurisdiction may forbid the trading of SelfCoins on exchanges on their territory or for their nationals. SelfCoin does not control public access to SelfCoins on exchanges where SelfCoins are or will be listed. However, all potential SelfCoins purchasers on these exchanges shall be subject to the same prerequisites than those imposed to SelfCoins purchasers during the SelfCoin ICO as detailed under Article 2 of the present T&C. These elements may conduct to large fluctuations in price over short timeframes for SelfCoins. SelfCoins purchasers agree not to attempt to divert the SelfCoins function for speculative purposes. SelfCoin will not be responsible for any secondary market trading of SelfCoins, regardless whether such markets exist or not for SelfCoins. 10. Other material risks SelfCoin and its advisors may not be held liable for any of the following: • use of SelfCoin services that are not considered as compliant with the present T&C; • non-performance, failure, malfunction or unavailability of the SelfCoin Platform for any reason; • mismatch et ee the ser i es de eloped a d the SelfCoi s pur haser’s needs; • suspension of access or suspension of services (in particular arising from a request issued by an appropriate administrative or judicial authority, or notification received from a third party); • security incidents relating to use of the Internet, concerning in particular, the loss, alteration, destruction, disclosure or unauthorized access to the
i estor’s data or details o or ia the i ter et; a d • loss, alteration or destruction of all or part of the content (information, personal or financial data, files or other items) hosted on SelfCoin Platform; • damages to systems, application and other items installed by the purchaser or by any third party on the infrastructure. 11. Unforeseen risks Cryptocurrencies and cryptographic tokens are a new, untested technology. In addition to the risks stipulated above, there are other risks that SelfCoin cannot predict. Risks may also occur as unanticipated combinations or as changes in the risks stipulated herein. Article 6 – Representations and Warranties Except as expressly stated in these T&C, SelfCoin Platform SelfCoins and all SelfCoin services are provided on an "as is" and/or "under development" basis, without representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever, express or implied to the extent permitted by law, including, but not limited to, accuracy and completeness of any information provided in the SelfCoin White Paper and/or in these terms, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, that SelfCoins are used and hold at the sole risk of the SelfCoins purchaser, that SelfCoin Platform, SelfCoins and/or the underlying SelfCoin blockchain protocol will be available uninterrupted and timely, will be free from defects, errors and bugs, and/or will be entirely secure.

Article 7 – Protection of Personal data Pursuant to the EU Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) and the subsequent General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 that will apply from 25 May 2018 that may apply to some of the SelfCoins purchasers depending on their nationality or residence, SelfCoin shall implement appropriate measures to prevent any unauthorised use or disclosure of any personal data made available to and processed by SelfCoin in connection with SelfCoin Platform and the SelfCoin ICO. To this end, SelfCoin will implement and maintain physical and technical measures that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, integrity, security and availability of the SelfCoins purchaser data. SelfCoin will not process any of the personal data collected during KYC/AML process as provided by article 2 (d) of the present T&C, realized during the ICO. If this situation was about to change, the processing of personal data that could be performed on the platform would be declared in France to the National Commission
for Data Protection and Liberties if needed. In accordance with Article 32 of French law N° 78-17 of 6 January 1978 relating to Information Technology, Files and Civil Liberties, SelfCoin, which is responsible for processing the said data, will immediately inform the SelfCoins purchasers by email that it is processing their personal data. For the sake of KYC/AMF and SelfCoin activities, SelfCoin will limit the personal data raised from SelfCoins purchasers and Talents to the minimum necessary to propose its services with respect to KYC/AMF best practices and Individuals ICO valuation requirements. Access to this information will be limited to SelfCoin personnel or to any trusted third party for the sole purpose of the provision of the SelfCoin services or KYC/AML process. Besides, all SelfCoins purchasers acknowledge that SelfCoin may be required to provide the Covered Data to any regulatory bodies or administrative authorities if required by law. SelfCoin ill keep SelfCoi s pur haser’s data o l for as lo g as is it is e essar , or as required by law. Any SelfCoins purchaser is entitled to object to the processing of his personal data for legitimate reasons, as well as to object to the use of such data for the purposes of prospecting activities. Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation, SelfCoins purchaser shall be entitled to request access to, rectification, erasure of his own personal data, or restriction of processing concerning SelfCoins purchaser or to object to processing as well as the right to data portability. However, given the immutable nature of blockchain technology used, SelfCoins purchaser may not be able to exercise all of these rights. However, as far as technically possible, SelfCoin will will make its best efforts to enable SelfCoins purchaser to exercise his rights. To do so, the SelfCoins purchaser shall notify in writing his request to SelfCoin, with a copy of its signed ID document to the following address: [email protected] Article 8 – Legislative and/or Regulatory Developments SelfCoin ICO is drafted and circulated worldwide via the Website and has not been registered under any law of any jurisdiction so far. SelfCoins purchasers may be from any jurisdiction in the world except for countries where the SelfCoin ICO, the distribution or use of the information set out in this SelfCoin White Paper or the acquisition or ownership of crypto-tokens would be contrary to law or regulation of such jurisdiction.
Article 9 – Force Majeure For e ajeure is dee ed a e e t e o d the parties’ o trol, hi h the a ot reasonably foresee or reasonably avoid or overcome, provided that its occurrence makes it impossible for the parties to fulfill their obligations, and adversely affects purchase execution (e.g. earthquake, storm or other element of nature, embargoes, substantial change in the price of resources, electrical telecommunications, hardware, software or other utility failures, armed conflicts, labor disputes or other industrial disturbances, changes in laws or regulations, changes in blockchain technologies, etc.). The most diligent Party shall promptly notify the other Party by any means, and the Parties will then agree to negotiate in good faith any changes required to ensure the continuity of contract obligations. If, however, such impossibility exceeds three (3) months, the most diligent Party may terminate the contract in writing without incurring its liability and without entitling the other party to claim any right of compensation, with SelfCoin retaining previously collected amounts, which are irrevocably acquired. Article 10 – Miscellaneous 1.
