ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 1 OVERVIEW Overview Introduction ODEM, a global educational provider, has the world’s first blockchain-driven software platform built on top of Ethereum’s decentralized ledger technology. ODEM aims to make blended education more affordable, accessible, verifiable, and transferable by leveraging White Paper blockchain technology and Ethereum’s ERC-20 based ODEM Tokens (ODE). In ODEM’s ‘ 17 presale and main token event in early 2018, ODEM sold approximately 100 million ODE (about 10,000 ETH, which was worth about $10 million at the time). ODEM facilitates blended education (and eventually live streamed and online programs) through several core services. Platform Technology Overview ODEM creates a marketplace through an open source onchain Ethereum-based ERC20 utility token used to transact ODEM digital assets and sets of corresponding smart contracts to manage transactional data related to education programs and credentials. This along with an offchain proprietary cloud-based platform provides students, educators, employers, and other stakeholders easy-to-use tools to participate in academic programs and receive blockchain-based educational certificates. ODEM Platform Unlike the onchain DApp, the Platform resides in a central location. Built with standard web and HTML technologies, the Platform is connected to the Ethereum blockchain using a web3 JavaScript library. Within the ODEM Platform, users will see: • Their profile • Programs • Events • Certificates obtained Copyright © ODEM 2018 No duplication of any part of this document allowed without permission  | 1

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 1 OVERVIEW • Calendar • Message center • Rewards/payments • Student’s qualifications Users will be able to: • Request a new program • Enroll in an available program White Paper ‘ 17 • List a program • List an event • Message other users • Bid on programs • Request certificates • Verify/deny claims • Issue certificates ODE (ERC-20) The ERC-20 ODE sold in the crowdsale will provide access to the ODEM Platform through the staking process. The ODE economic model is based on the Sweetbridge Foundation’s discount-token research. The design isolates the utility of ODE on the Platform from external market forces, ensuring that use of ODE is always advantageous. The ODEM staking architecture is based on adoption of the Ethereum ERC-900 interface. A student stakes a desired program by committing a small amount of ODE. Educators stake courses they intend to teach. Staking assists the Platform in assessing levels of student and educator interest. If a participant backs out, their staked tokens are forfeited. Using ODE eliminates issues associated with fiat, including high fees and lengthy processing times. ODEM Credits ODEM uses the ERC-780 protocol for creation of ODEM-Credits (ODEM-C). Adaptation of the protocol will account for a more general payload and limit the transfer method. ODEM-C are digital certificates stored on the blockchain that are given to users who successfully complete educational offerings.

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 1 OVERVIEW The ODEM-C includes the name of the student, educator, program, and institution, the program’s date, and the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) hash where the physical certificate can be accessed with a passphrase. ODEM Student Education DApp Solutions Our solution architecture is broken down by value proposition for the student, our core consumer on the ODEM Platform. We are creating a series of smart contract use cases that White Paper will be made available for use on the Ethereum blockchain in early 2019. ODEM Platform Use Cases Introduction 1. Accessibility ‘ 17 Education Program Staking (EPS) is when a student makes a commitment to enroll in a program offered on the ODEM Platform. The student will typically stake, or deposit, about 10 percent of the full price of the program. Staking helps the Platform assess demand and discourages students from frivolously signing up for programs. If a student stakes a program and later backs out, the stake will be forfeited. Educators are also required to stake their intention to offer an ODEM program. 2. Verifiability and Transferability Since educational diplomas and credentials are still managed almost entirely by centralized learning institutions, verification of one’s education for the purpose of either employment or continued education is completely dependent on the physical institutions’ centralized authority. ODEM leverages the trustless nature of blockchain technology to move the authority of education verification onto the blockchain. Once mass adoption occurs, it allows other decentralized educational providers to offer programs and be recognized as legitimately credentialing bodies. This will create opportunities for new and nontraditional education models to be recognized and legitimized in the search for gainful employment and better transferability for relocation and future education.

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 1 OVERVIEW To achieve this, ODEM has created a set of smart contracts and interfaces through its Platform that allow educational certificates of any kind to be created, signed, verified, secured, shared, and managed entirely on the blockchain. These applications include: ODEM’s ERC780 Certificate created using Digital Education Certification (DEC). DEC acts as a blockchain instance of a student’s education certificate representing a completed educational experience digitally signed and verified by the educator (and if applicable, the institution). ODEM DECs are immutable certificates on the blockchain owned by the student. White Paper The core data includes the public key of the stakeholders and their transactions live and ‘ 17 onchain. The corresponding metadata reflecting this education program is captured and managed securely and offchain on the ODEM Platform. Students can view digital certificates through a combination of accessing their onchain certification and logging into the Platform. ODEM requires a small amount of ODE for each certificate created on the blockchain. As students accumulate blockchain certificates, their experiences can be managed in aggregate through an Education Activity Repository (EAR). An EAR is a secure record of an individual’s educational history as verified by the educational institutions that the student has attended. Should a student lose access to their educational identity such as in the case of displaced refugee populations, ODEM has a social claims verification process where a student’s educational records can be recreated through a process called Identity Through Education (ITE). Once recreated, the students records become part of their immutable EAR. Independent Credentialing Verification (ICV): Allows academic records to be automatically transferred from the blockchain to an academic institution’s database. Education Skill Badges (ESB): Digital badges of a student’s accomplishments and on-the-job skills verified by an employer that are stored on the blockchain. Training Education Records (TER): An employee’s training credentials issued by an employer that are stored on the blockchain. They collectively represent a lifetime of learning and personal improvement. Copyright © ODEM 2018 No duplication of any part of this document allowed without permission  | 4

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 1 OVERVIEW 3. Affordability he ODEM Platform reduces the cost of education by offering short-term academic programs (instead of more expensive four-year degrees) and allowing students to bid on courses and programs. Not only can students have complete control over their educational records through ODEM White Paper certificates, they can also receive ODE by letting employers and other interested parties view 17 their certifications through the Education Certification Viewing (ECV) contract. This allows ‘ third parties such as employers to purchase access to students’ digital certificates. Access fees are shared with opted-in users. ODEM charges an ODE fee for viewing (the fee is split some % between ODEM and the students). Program Revenue Sharing (PRS): Using smart contracts to automatically distribute revenue to ODEM Platform Partners, including speaking and literary agents, when their services are delivered through the ODEM Platform. Perpetual Curriculum Royalty (PCR): ODE are sent to educators when their licensed curriculum is used by other educators for teaching. Smart contracts automatically send ODE when third-party educators access licensed material through a passphrase. There is an ODEM fee associated with this process. Education Token Sponsorships (ETS): Similar to scholarships, ETS fund the cost of studies for disadvantaged students and use smart contracts to ensure that conditions on the donations are being fulfilled. Professional Skills Network (PSN): Informs ODEM’s employment partners of students who have completed specific program requirements for potential hiring. Currency Agnostic Settlement (CAS): ODEM will leverage blockchain-based mechanisms to use ODE as a voucher for use on the platform. ODE will be used on the Platform to ensure fast, reliable, cross-border, transactions with multiple parties on each side regardless of currency type.

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 1, 2 OVERVIEW, ODEM DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT Excelorators Partnership and Beta Adoption The ODEM team was inspired by the success of its partner, Excelorators Inc. For six years, Excelorators has provided high-quality educational services to overseas students, managers, and executives on the campuses of top U.S. learning institutions. Excelorators’ clients will test the ODEM Platform in preparation for mass adoption. ODEM will stake on behalf of Excelorators’ students and educators during testing. White Paper 17 ‘ Through the achievement of operational efficiencies in the ODEM Platform, Excelorators expects to reduce the cost of its educational programs. ODEM Platform Version Release Timetable 11/21/18: Closed ODEM Platform Beta 1.4 12/31/18: Closed ODEM Platform Beta 1.5 01/10/19: Closed ODEM Platform Soft Launch 02/28/19: ODEM Platform Mainnet Launch ODEM Development Environment ODEM Decentralized App (DApp): Open Source The DApp forms the backend to the ODEM Platform. The DApp’s smart contract links students, educators, and service providers considering educational offerings. ODEM is creating a set of smart contracts, protocols, and standards to interact with ODE on the Ethereum platform. These self-executing contracts incorporate unique terms and criteria such as a program’s value in ODE, duration, and location. The contracts manage transactions in ODE to educators and the issuance of students’ certificates. The DApp stores data about participants to assist on decisions about their future engagement in academic programs on the Platform.

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 2 ODEM DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT Once published, the DApp’s code will be available to the community for re-use and augmented development to create new opportunities for the ODE. ODEM Platform: Proprietary User Interface The ODEM Platform is the proprietary interface and first application running on the ODEM network. White Paper 17 Services provided include: • • • Staking ODE for educational offerings Viewing other user’s educational data Viewing aggregated educational data ‘ • Sponsorships • Education Activity Repository (EAR) • Identity through Education (ITE) Private Keys ODEM is providing integration of online and hard wallet providers with front-end user friendly wallet management of private keys. ODEM will not hold private keys or ODE directly for the users of the ODEM Platform. Necessity of ODE The ODE, in addition to being used for staking, drives the ODEM-C smart contract. Controlling staking requirements is used to tune the system. Maintaining a properly tuned staking requirement is difficult if secondary market forces dictate the staked tokens’ utility. By using ODE, the effect of external market fluctuations will be reduced. Velocity Problem With instantaneous transactions, there is a problem with velocity where a token that is spent does not have any real consistent forces on the price. By staking ODE, a function for the Token of just passing through is created. For more about the velocity problem please click here.

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 3 APPENDIX A: Technology Architecture Supporting Documentation Appendix A: Technology Architecture Supporting Documentation 1. Educational Program Token Staking (EPS) Students and educators will use ERC-20-based ODE to commit to academic program White Paper offerings by staking. Participants commit ODE to lock in their financial commitment. ODEM‘s 17 staking model follows predefined conditions that grant reward ODE for following through. It ‘ docks fees when commitments are not upheld. When a program is scheduled and participants have met all conditions, the staked ODE will be unlocked. The process is applicable to individual offerings and programs. They do not require another smart contract. Programs can be set up by configuring educational offerings as defined by a set of prerequisites. Users will be able to see each other’s educational history and credibility scores based on information stored in the Platform, DApp, and blockchain. ODEM stakes = Percent of stake (based on Oracle / whitelist contract) x number of seats created x cost to register for a seat.

ODEM Technical Whitepaper v1.4 November, 2018 3 APPENDIX A: Technology Architecture Supporting Documentation 1. An educator stakes ODE to commit to teach events within an academic program pending the receipt of a sufficient number of students 2. A student stakes ODE to request an offering or register for a program. A typical stake will be as little as 10% of the final price of an academic program 3. An educator can commit to teach an offering that a student requested 4. When all the conditions are met, a program is ‘locked’ 5. A locked program triggers definitive collection of ODE in ODEM’s Settlement System White Paper 6. The educator finishes the events within the program and issues digital certificates to ‘ 17 students 7. Staked ODE are unlocked and ODEM pays educators and service providers ODEM Program Selection Generator The ODEM Program Selection Generator uses data stored within the Platform, DApp, and blockchain to make recommendations about educational offerings. A student, for example, would request a preferred program, date, value in ODE, educator, location, lodging, and travel options. The generator finds the closest matches to trigger program creation. It also creates a smart contract for fulfillment, delivery, and ODE transfer. Renege Policy Penalties will apply for reneging on program commitments. ODEM reserves the right to levy fines after observing user behavior. ODEM aims to incentivize responsible behavior and avoid penalizing excessively. Some cases, such as a death in the family, may be unavoidable. Surveys ODEM users who participate in an educational offering will receive a questionnaire. Users will be asked to rate other ODEM participants who attended the program. Survey responses will influence the user’s educational rating on the Platform, DApp, and blockchain. Survey participants may also be rewarded with ODE. Copyright © ODEM 2018 No duplication of any part of this document allowed without permission '()* | 9
