1 Executive Summary Wirex is a ground-breaking UK-based, FCA-licenced global leader in digital money solutions for individuals and businesses. Our payment platform pioneered the seamless integration of crypto and traditional currencies to support multi-currency accounts, currency transfers and exchange services. Wirex has a global footprint with 6 offices across the globe, nearly 2 million registered users and availability in 200 countries and territories. Wirex is built on state-of-the-art technology to make the future of digital payments a reality, today. To realise this goal and facilitate the everyday management of both digital and traditional currencies, Wirex integrates traditional banking infrastructure with cryptocurrency blockchains. This provides a trusted and cost-effective service for digital money transactions which is relevant for both today’s payment environment and the token economy of the future. Wirex is a regulated financial institution and is licensed as an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), licence number 902025. By building a solid foundation for scalable and secure services in a regulated environment, Wirex will be the key platform for digital payments in the near future, including merchant payments, cross-border currency exchanges/ transfers and machine-to-machine (M2M) micro transactions. Most importantly, Wirex is available to everyone – from everyday consumers to businesses of all sizes. The platform currently supports nine cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, XRP, Ethereum, Lumens, Waves, Wollo, DAI and NANO) and eleven traditional currency accounts (including GBP, EUR, USD, HKD, AUD, CAD, CHF and CZK), with a number of major crypto and traditional currencies in the pipeline. Wirex was the first company in the world to issue a contactless Wirex Visa card, allowing users to convert and spend cryptocurrencies instantly in day- to-day life. The platform provides unrestricted access to OTC and interbank rates for crypto and traditional currency exchanges. Unlike some other financial institutions and payment platforms, Wirex doesn’t limit access to 4 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Executive Summary Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

the best market rates to those who can afford excessive minimum order amounts. Furthermore, we are excited about the successful launch of our unique B2B platform in February 2019 that has already attracted more than 3,000 registrations from corporate customers and has successfully onboarded top tier exchanges and OTC brokers including Huobi, ZBX and Enigma Securities. True to the goal of bridging the gap between traditional and digital money, Wirex created Cryptoback™, the world’s first crypto reward programme. It earns cardholders 0.5% back in digital currency on all in-store purchases made with the Wirex Visa card. WXT, the Wirex platform native token, is a universal Stellar-based token extensively used within and outside the Wirex platform, representing a universal fee and reward unit. It is designed to benefit our growing B2C and B2B user communities, help our customers save on fees and let them access unique financial rewards if they maintain the required balances of WXT. Backed by SBI Group, a globally-renowned financial institution, Wirex has spent the past four years revolutionising payments. It’s no surprise that nearly 2m users across 130 countries already say: “I pay my way. I pay by Wirex.” 2 Background 2.1 Vision As great believers in blockchain technology and a cashless society, we have built a platform that can address the limitations of conventional financial institutions by exploiting technological breakthroughs. Our focus is on facilitating the adoption of the token economy by creating solutions for the most relevant use cases. Having analysed the current status of the blockchain-based financial services segment, we have ascertained that only 5 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Background Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

one fully-formed industry cohort exists, represented by several established crypto exchanges/trading platforms. Out of dozens of exchanges operating on the market, a few command significantly higher transaction volume. Their success, in our view, can be attributed to robust technical infrastructure, clean user interfaces and a wide selection of currency pairs for trading. Some of these exchanges, such as Huobi and Binance, prefer transacting solely within crypto ecosystem, whilst others like Coinbase and Bitstamp strive to combine crypto and fiat functionality. In short, the crypto trading/exchange market is well-developed and competitive. Crypto-based financial services that lie outside the trading and exchange vertical are less developed. When it comes to payments, insurance, lending, asset management and so on, there are no recognisable winners. Although currency exchange is a very important part of our business model at Wirex, our main focus targets blockchain-based, payment-related use cases. The over-saturated trading vertical is not a priority for us. Having started our journey enabling individual customers to utilise digital assets in everyday life, we are now the first FCA-licensed company in the world to have built a corporate solution – Wirex Business – for all types of businesses that enables the management of both digital and fiat funds on one borderless platform, with multi-currency IBANs and blockchain wallets. Our vision for the future of the token economy correlates with a real trend towards technological mass adoption. Given our focus on payments, we strive to offer the best-in-class platform for individual customers and businesses alike. We have been market leaders in combining major payment rails with blockchains for more than four years. There are blockchain payment use cases, including M2M payments, micropayments and the global digitalisation of assets, that cannot be fully realised today. Our aim is to continue developing practical solutions for our customers, both businesses and consumers, with a view to becoming the go- to platform in the payment environment of the future. 6 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Background Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

Our track record suggests that we have progressed impressively in terms of pace, technological achievements and milestones reached so far. 2.2 Wirex history 2014 Wirex was founded in 2014 with the aim of bringing cryptocurrency into everyday life, using the extensive Visa network (40m merchants in 200 countries and territories). 2015 The first Wirex Visa card was issued in January 2015, fueling tremendous client growth. Wirex achieved its goal of creating a truly innovative hybrid crypto/traditional currency card that captured the imagination of both crypto enthusiasts and the wider market. Thanks to the support of early adopters and a ‘first mover’ advantage, Wirex quickly became the default card for cryptocurrency payments globally. 2016 Wirex opened its R&D centre in Kiev and continued to invest resources in technology, security and compliance. By the end of 2016, Wirex dominated the cryptocurrency market with 70% market share and 1m customers globally. In October, we won the Fin/Sum start-up competition, beating more than 30 companies from all over the world. The Fin/Sum award was a trigger for Wirex’s success in Japan and our decision to establish an office in Tokyo. 2017 The firm raised funding from SBI Group, one of the most significant players in the FinTech and cryptocurrency arena. As a result of the participation and support of Japanese investors and overwhelming growth in this market, Wirex decided to incorporate Wirex Japan, a 100% subsidiary of Wirex UK Limited. By the end of 2017, Wirex had maintained its market share and the number of employees quickly grew to 100 people across three offices in London, Tokyo and Kiev. 2018 2018 was the year in which investments in IT and Compliance paid dividends for Wirex. Wirex was one of the first UK crypto-friendly companies to be licensed as an Electronic Money Institution by the UK 7 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Background Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

Financial Conduct Authority. A big believer in the token economy, Wirex added support for LTC, ETH and XRP, in keeping with their objectives of expanding their list of supported currencies. Wirex also introduced another world-first feature in the form of Cryptoback™, an exclusive cryptocurrency reward programme that earns users 0.5% back in digital currency on all in-store transactions. With 2 million customers across over 130 countries, Wirex is expanding rapidly. New subsidiaries Wirex Singapore, Wirex USA and Wirex Canada were incorporated. To expand card programmes globally, agreements with BIN sponsors from Singapore, USA and Canada were signed off and integration begun. 2019 Q1 of 2019 saw Wirex pick up where they left off in 2018. The introduction of new currencies including DAI, the platform’s first stablecoin, Wollo, Waves, Nano and XLM provided exciting new investment options for Wirex users, while a new Community Champions programme gave fans and enthusiasts the unique opportunity to work closely with the Wirex team on beta tests, launches and product development. In February 2019 Wirex launched Wirex 3.0 – the next-generation Wirex platform offering 9 cryptocurrencies, 11 traditional currencies, access to interbank and OTC exchange rates and a refreshed visual identity. The redesign was completed in collaboration with Pentagram – the world’s largest independent design consultancy. As part of the Wirex 3.0 release, Wirex released Wirex Business, the world’s first B2B solution for businesses dealing with digital assets. In the first four weeks of operation, Wirex Business received more than 3,000 applications from corporate customers. 2.3 Addressable market Given the growth of the token economy so far, we anticipate mass adoption across both emerging and developed economies. With advances in 8 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Background Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

technology, we believe that blockchain-based payments will become an essential tool for the unbanked population – currently numbering around two billion people worldwide. At the same time, blockchain technology has revolutionised the entire e-commerce ecosystem by providing tremendous benefits to both merchants and customers in developed and developing economies. The $3 trillion global retail e-commerce market is now growing at almost 20% a year. It is currently dominated by Visa and Mastercard but is set to be disrupted by blockchain and stablecoins in particular. These represent a substantially more efficient method of remittance by providing instant settlement capabilities along with a significantly lower cost-per- transaction. At the moment, high transaction fees and long settlement periods put significant pressure on SMEs. These problems can be mitigated using blockchain-based payments thanks to lower costs and near-instantaneous settlements. By providing an easy solution for merchants and their customers to accept and make payments in the form of digital assets, the existing e-commerce market will eventually be reshaped by alternative (blockchain-based) payment rails. Such a solution should be capable of instantly issuing, redeeming and exchanging multicurrency stablecoins. This is exactly what Wirex is building. 2.4 Client base forecast Despite the crypto winter and general decline of cryptocurrency interest amongst the general public, Wirex’s retail and corporate client base keeps growing steadily. There are three main factors that account for this fast growth in the face of challenging market conditions: Firstly, Wirex has always focused on real use cases, such as payments. Almost all crypto-native companies report a decline in trading volume and active customers because there is less speculation and long periods of low market volatility, suggesting that cryptocurrencies are becoming less volatile 9 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Background Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

Secondly, Wirex is a first-mover and true innovator. While we are aware that competing companies try to imitate what Wirex is doing, in reality, the competition is very low. In fact, there is no single company in the world that offers Wirex’s services on a global scale in a regulated environment. Lastly, global expansion accounts for the fast-growing client base. We have a well-defined and tested approach to global expansion, in which compliance and regulation play a key role. Our typical approach is to obtain the required licences, grow the team, localise the product (translate the app and add local payment options), grow the community, and grow the client base. 2.4.1 Retail customers Currently, Wirex has over two million registered users and the customer base doubles every year without significant marketing operations. In fact, the customer base is expected to continue doubling as we move forward. Wirex has 700,000 customers on the waiting list for the Wirex Visa Card in APAC and North America (the card launch is planned for Q3 2019). We are targeting a global client base of 25 million in the next 3 years. 10 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Background Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

2.4.2 Corporate customers Wirex Business is relatively new. As of April 2019, we have over 100 businesses live on the platform (including top-tier exchanges and OTC brokers including Huobi, ZBX and Enigma Securities) and 3,000 on the waiting list to use Wirex Business. The main reason for such outstanding demand is that there is no single platform in the world offering the same breadth of services as Wirex Business, e.g. secure crypto wallets, corporate bank accounts and instant exchange at OTC/interbank rates. While our first-mover advantage has served us well, we understand it will not last forever. To maintain our leading position, we plan to do what we do best – innovate and incorporate new and exciting features for businesses that will help them unlock the potential of token economy and blockchain-based payments. Wirex plans to open 300,000 Wirex Business accounts for corporate clients by the end of 2022. 11 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Background Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3 Wirex Platform The Wirex platform is designed from scratch and 99% built in-house. This unique approach has enabled Wirex to build systems free from legacy constraints using technology that transforms the payment experience – making transactions faster, more efficient and more secure for everyone. The Wirex platform is an integrative model utilising cloud-based micro- services. Each has a specific responsibility and can be updated or replicated without a lengthy maintenance process. When we designed the platform, we paid particular attention to security and safety. Wirex’s infrastructure is audited and pen-tested on a regular basis. In addition, the Wirex platform is PCI DSS Level 1-certified, meeting the industry’s highest security requirements. 12 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3.1 Core services 3.1.1 Liquidity engine The Wirex liquidity engine is a network of liquidity providers capable of providing liquidity for more than 800 currency pairs, including cryptocurrency and fiat. In order to facilitate such currency coverage, Wirex has integrated a number of external liquidity providers: • 3 Cryptocurrency and fiat exchanges to cover different currency pairs and find the best rates • 3 OTC brokers to accommodate high-value orders and find the best price for particular currency combinations and order depth • 2 FX brokers to provide interbank exchange rates for traditional currency pairs 3.1.2 Risk engine Wirex employs a combination of in-house built tools with the best solutions available on the market to combat: • Fraudulent card transactions • Unauthorised access and transactions We employ AI and ML-based features to discover and prevent new fraud related patterns. 3.1.3 Automated KYC/KYB We work with industry leaders in automated KYC and KYB processes. As a regulated entity we perform all necessary checks, including: • PEPs/sanctions onboarding and monitoring • Facial recognition and ID • Proof of address and residence • Blockchain-based AML 13 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3.1.4 Banking infrastructure Wirex is integrated with a number of banking partners to create and close individual and corporate bank accounts, initiate and receive bank transfers and exchange currencies. We offer our customers multi-currency international bank accounts connected to SWIFT/SEPA/Faster Payment/ACH and we are constantly adding more local payment rails. 3.1.5 Visa infrastructure The Wirex platform is deeply integrated with Visa’s global network to offer issuing and acquiring capabilities. Visa network integration allows powerful and scalable payment processing that’s certified by Visa. It supports Chip and PIN (EMV), magstripe, virtual and contactless card processing across prepaid and debit card rails. We manage and control all important elements of the network, including customer on-boarding, card creation, card delivery, card transaction processing etc. 3.2 Wirex app (B2C – retail product) Wirex offers fully-featured mobile wallets supporting more than 20 currencies, digital and traditional, as well as Wirex Visa cards that allow clients to spend their money with 40m+ merchants around the world. More than 2 million people have registered on the Wirex platform so far and we welcome thousands of new customers to the platform each day. While cryptocurrency has huge potential in the payment space, poor merchant acceptance is a big obstacle for mass adoption. In fact, the number of merchants around the world that accept digital assets as a means of payment is still only in the tens of thousands, a figure insufficient for the mass market. The Wirex Visa card solves this problem by allowing customers to use their digital money at the best possible rates anywhere Visa is accepted. 14 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

While it is clear that blockchain-based P2P payments represent the future, we believe that integrating digital money into existing merchant networks is a vital first step on the road to mass adoption. The Wirex app helps users manage digital and fiat currencies and provides secure accounts for everyday use, as well as convenience and versatility. 3.2.1 Features Multi-currency accounts (digital & traditional) Wirex boasts the only mobile banking app that combines digital wallets (9 cryptocurrencies) with multi-currency bank accounts (11 traditional currencies) that support multiple in/out funding options (crypto transfers, ACH, SEPA, SWIFT, Faster Payments and debit/credit cards). Instant exchange Wirex’s exchange engine can instantly convert any combination of 9 cryptocurrencies and 11 traditional currencies at the best rates on the market. Best exchange rates (OTC / Interbank) Wirex is integrated with 3 exchanges, 3 OTC brokers and 2 FX brokers. At any point in time, Wirex can provide the best exchange rate regardless of currency pairing. Visa card with dynamic 3D-Secure Wirex Visa cards allow customers to seamlessly spend their crypto or fiat currency in over 40 million merchants worldwide. The range of Wirex- supported currencies underpins multiple use cases: a primary payment card, a travel card, and a solution for numerous crypto-based remittances. The fact that all Wirex cards support the dynamic 3D-Secure protocol makes all online transactions as secure as possible. Cryptoback™ / Wirex Rewards Cryptoback™ is the world’s first crypto-based rewards program. It offers 0.5% back on every in-store purchase paid in Wirex tokens (WXT). Cryptoback™ has proved to be an excellent instrument for increasing customer engagement and retention. 15 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

P2P and cross-border payments (Q3 2019) Wirex users can instantly send or receive funds to or from their contacts without for free. People who use the Wirex app can split bills or save for trips and birthday gifts. Wirex will issue 26 fiat-backed Wirex stablecoins. A partnership with the IBM World Wire network will enable funds to be sent globally, allowing for cheaper and faster payments than the existing traditional options currently on the market. Spending analytics and budgeting (coming soon) Wirex uses big data and a bespoke set of AI tools to categorise transactional data by merchant, location and transaction category. Wirex users can instantly see their spending breakdown, improve financial habits and stick to a planned budget. Saving accounts (coming soon) Wirex Saving accounts offer a variety of options for saving money: • One-off payments can be used if customers need to put money aside manually • Recurring transfers to the Saving account are useful for regular savings • Spare change round-ups allow users to save without thinking about it • When a user enables the round-up feature, we will automatically round up any transaction you make with your Wirex card to the nearest whole number and place it in the customers savings account. Crypto-backed loans (coming soon) Eligible customers will be able to use their digital assets as collateral for crypto-backed loans. Based on currency and terms, Wirex will provide the best possible offer via a network of loan originators. Crypto-backed loans can be a fast and tax-efficient way to unlock cryptocurrency savings. Merchants offers (coming soon) A good relationship with merchant networks in different countries allows Wirex to provide unique Cryptoback™ offers, discounts and cashback deals to its clients. Available merchant offers will be displayed in the Rewards section of the app; customers can choose the ones they like. 16 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3.3 Wirex Business (B2B — corporate product) Wirex Business is a regulated corporate finance solution offering secure multi-signature wallets, corporate bank accounts and the best exchange rates available. The cryptocurrency industry is growing fast, but many of the companies dealing with digital assets struggle to open bank accounts or integrate with the existing banking and payment infrastructure. Our goal is to provide a secure, regulated and cost-efficient environment in which businesses can manage digital and traditional money without artificial limits or huge fees. We believe that compatibility with traditional infrastructure will accelerate innovation and encourage more companies to focus on real use cases; this will facilitate the mass adoption of cryptocurrency. 3.3.1 Features One-stop on / off ramp solution (Digital<>FIAT) Wirex Business combines cryptocurrency custody (for 9 cryptocurrencies) with multi-currency fiat accounts (11 currencies) and supports multiple funds in / out options (crypto, ACH, SEPA, SWIFT, debit / credit cards). Deep liquidity pool Wirex is integrated with 3 exchanges, 3 OTC brokers and 2 FX brokers, allowing us to process multi-million dollar orders at some of the best market rates. OTC rates Wirex has democratised access to OTC exchange rates with no minimum order size. API REST API and WebSocket API provides access to the entire functionality available in the Wirex Business UI, which means businesses can integrate the Wirex platform into their existing infrastructure. 21 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

Streamlined KYB A fully-automated KYB process allows businesses to onboard from more than 100 countries, with manual intervention only necessary if there is a complex ownership structure. Mass-payments Wirex payment infrastructure allows instant and low-cost mass payments in any currency, digital or traditional. Stablecoins and the IBM World Wire network will be used to facilitate cross-border transfers. Advanced security and role management Wirex offers three predefined roles: Owner, Accountant and Viewer, with different permissions for each. Companies can add new roles and customise access and approval flow to satisfy business requirements. 22 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3.4 Stablecoins Wirex is about to start issuing 26 different fiat-backed stablecoins backed one- to-one by a corresponding fiat currency. For example, Wirex will hold £1 for every GBPW, $1 for every USDW and so on. These funds are held in segregated bank accounts that are constantly monitored and audited. In addition, the Wirex platform offers the instant exchange of fiat-backed tokens at interbank rates. 3.4.1 Auto-tokenisation for fiat balances Wirex stablecoins are automatically available for retail and corporate customers. Once a customer deposits fiat currency, Wirex instantly tokenises it by issuing the equivalent in stablecoins; clients can decide to use stablecoins or traditional banking rails to pay their partners or suppliers. For example, if Bob deposits 100 USD via ACH transfer, the Wirex platform instantly issues 100 USDW. Bob can send the USDW to friends, pay bills or purchase goods with his Wirex Visa card. 3.4.2 List of stablecoins and supported bank-in/out methods We continuously add new currencies and fiat on/off ramp methods. The table below shows the stablecoins that will be available on the platform. Token Backed by fiat In/Out bank options USDW USD ACH, SWIFT EURW EUR SEPA, SEPA Instant, SWIFT GBPW GBP Faster Payments, SWIFT 25 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]


3.4.3 Stablecoin features Fiat-backed stable coins (26+ currencies) Wirex stablecoins are fully collateralised fiat-backed tokens in 26 currencies, offering real-time interbank exchange rates. Stellar-based The Stellar platform offers high-speed transactions. The platform can process 4,000 transactions per second, with each transaction taking between 3-5 seconds to confirm. The platform is not only scalable but also extremely efficient as the cost-per-transaction is less than $0.00001. In addition, Stellar offers a built-in compliance framework and the ability to freeze and reissue funds in case they are lost or stolen. See 3.5 below for further details. Regulated, audited and compliant Wirex stablecoins are based on existing Wirex E-Money infrastructure (audited, tested and regulated). Focus on payments While fiat-backed tokens can be used for hedging and numerous other use cases, the main focus for Wirex stablecoins is payments: everyday payments, cross-border transfers and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) transactions. Real-time monitoring The Wirex platform allows anyone to monitor the amount of fiat and issued tokens in real-time, making Wirex stablecoins the most transparent fiat- backed tokens on the market. Decentralised issuance Wirex uses governed networks and consortium, which lets any institution that satisfies the requirements issue Wirex stablecoins. 3.4.4 Use cases Hedging Cryptocurrencies fluctuate in price according to market supply and demand. Tokenised fiat money does not fluctuate in value. Instead, it remains price- 27 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

pegged to the value of its underlying asset. This makes price-stable tokens useful for providing fiat connectivity and hedging risks on crypto exchanges, particularly on exchanges that do not provide traditional fiat on and off-ramps – as long as the price is truly stable and effective protective measures around the minting and redemption of such tokens are in place. An investor may choose to protect themselves from bitcoin’s fluctuating value by trading their BTC for USD/GBP/EUR tokens on a supporting exchange. In this case, they can rest assured that the value of those tokens will not fluctuate. Merchant payments At present, any business takes a significant risk accepting cryptocurrencies as a method of exchange due to the significant volatility of this asset class. Stablecoins hold the potential to unlock the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies for day-to-day payments for businesses and commerce; price stability is a key reason why merchants and retailers around the world do not usually accept crypto transactions. Additionally, merchants stand to save 3-5% in fees compared to debit/credit card payments. Cross-border payments Stablecoins eliminate the price volatility risk as crypto payments are processed. To stay relevant in this context, transactions have to be confirmed rapidly in order to provide a good user experience and a noteworthy improvement on conventional transfers (international bank transfers currently take up to three days). Token transfers take 3-5 seconds to confirm. Both counterparties can leverage the Stellar compliance framework in case they need additional information about the sender or recipient. In case of cross-currency transfer, exchange rates can be provided by Wirex or via the Stellar DEX – during the exchange process, the tokens of one currency are destroyed while the tokens of another currency are created. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) payments Stellar-based stablecoins are ideal for microtransactions. They are fast and cheap compared to competing blockchains such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. Wirex stablecoins built on the stellar infrastructure can process 4,000 transactions per second, which makes them capable of processing millions of M2M transactions. Reports suggest that there will be 20-40 billion connected devices by 2022; we believe that M2M payments will be a huge new market in the very near future. 28 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3.4.5 Governance Wirex uses a decentralised issuance model, in which any financial institution can join the Wirex consortium to issue tokens backed by a local currency. One of the requirements for such issuance is that corporates have to store their funds in Wirex Business accounts, so we can guarantee both the transparency and safety of tokenised funds. 3.5 Stellar partnership Stellar is an open-sourced, distributed payments infrastructure, built on the premise that the international community needs “a worldwide financial network open to anyone.” The project meets this need, connecting individuals, institutions, and payment systems through the platform. In February 2019, Wirex started implementing Stellar-based stablecoins in 26 currencies, in close collaboration with the Stellar Foundation. In addition, Wirex set up three full validators and joined other companies such as IBM in the Stellar Consensus protocol. 3.6 IBM World Wire partnership Using blockchain technology and the Stellar protocol, IBM Blockchain World Wire provides shared distributed ledgers for atomic payment clearing and settlement in near real-time. The network uses digital assets (that serve as the agreed-upon store of value exchanged between parties) to settle transactions while integrating payment instruction messages. The main benefits of this are: • Increased transparency • Immutable transaction history • Decreased need for intermediaries • Shared distributed ledger system • Near real-time remittance • Easy consensus between stakeholders Wirex is in the process of joining the IBM World Wire payment network and plans to be an active market maker and participant of World Wire. The World Wire network will complement existing Stellar<>Wirex integration and opens multiple possibilities in the remittance space. Given that 97% of all banks in the world work with IBM, we recognise this IBM initiative as a first step towards achieving a standard for stablecoin-based payments. 29 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3.7 List of innovations 3.7.1 Crypto debit card The world’s first prepaid card linked to a bitcoin wallet was issued by Wirex (formerly E-Coin) in January 2015. By issuing a card product like this, we attempted to solve one of the major problems in cryptocurrencies, namely their poor adoption and acceptance. Instead of convincing all merchants in the world to start accepting cryptocurrencies, we were able to use existing Visa and Mastercard merchant networks and connect with over 40 million merchants in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. 3.7.2 Crypto-backed reward programme — Cryptoback™ The world’s first cryptocurrency reward programme was created by Wirex in 2018. Cryptoback™ offers 0.5% back in cryptocurrency on every in-store purchase made with the Wirex Visa card. Cryptoback™ has been a tremendous success from the very beginning. Tens of thousands of people pay by Wirex every day and collect Cryptoback™ when they buy a cup of coffee, groceries or clothing. The Cryptoback™ programme has neatly eliminated the major problem of legacy loyalty point schemes, such as the inability to spend, exchange or transfer collected points. Because Cryptoback™ is paid in cryptocurrency, it is instantly redeemable and spendable. 3.7.3 Crypto-friendly business accounts In February 2019, we launched the world’s first-ever FCA-licenced, crypto-friendly business account. As blockchain comes into its eleventh year of existence, consumers can enjoy myriad options for managing their cryptocurrency, whether on exchanges, payment platforms or private offline wallets. There are also growing numbers of fintech start-ups that offer services in the digital payment space to help open the market to more mainstream adoption. However, when it comes to businesses, things are not quite as simple. A lack of regulation in the sector has restricted the scope for crypto-friendly 30 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

business offerings. Today, many crypto and blockchain-focused start-ups still struggle to find banking partners that can accommodate their needs due to widespread institutional reluctance. Wirex offers corporate multi- currency IBANs with access to SWIFT/SEPA/Faster Payments/ACH, secure cryptocurrency wallets and exchange at OTC rates in a one-stop, elegant solution - the Wirex Business platform. 3.7.4 OTC rates for retail customers In February 2019, Wirex started providing OTC exchange rates to retail customers. We were the first on the market with such an initiative. Not many people realise that the OTC market for digital assets is bigger than the exchange market. Exchanges might set the price, but medium-to-large trades do not take place there. The main reason why centralised exchanges are still popular is that the OTC market is not accessible to everyone. OTC rates are widely accepted to be the best available, yet only institutional investors, high-net-worth individuals or large corporations are allowed to access them. Further barriers to OTC trades are prohibitively large minimum order sizes. At Wirex, we think it’s unfair that retail customers and SMEs (small and medium enterprises) cannot trade on the OTC market. We are very excited to be the first company in the world to democratise access to OTC and interbank rates. It is now possible to exchange up to 20 digital and traditional currencies at the OTC or interbank rate on the Wirex platform, regardless of currency pair or order size. 3.7.5 Multi-currency stablecoins (26 currencies) Wirex is introducing another world-first — 26 multi-currency stablecoins, which can be instantly and seamlessly redeemed, transferred or exchanged. Wirex fiat-pegged tokens are unique in that they are used to auto-tokenise the entire fiat balances on the Wirex platform (Wirex app and Wirex Business), which makes them instantly available for our 2 million retail customers and 3,000 corporates. 31 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

3.7.6 M2M platform Wirex is currently implementing the world’s first Machine-To-Machine (M2M) platform (code named W-Pay) based on Wirex fiat-pegged tokens (multiple currencies with instant exchange), Stellar scalability (4,000 transactions per second) and IBM World Wire capabilities (97% of banks use IBM). Once built, the platform will be able to process thousands of transactions per second on a global scale. It will integrate seamlessly into existing banking/payment infrastructure and will comply with existing E-Money regulation. 32 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper Wirex platform Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]

We plan to invest $4 million to develop partnerships with a number of well-known merchants to put significant transaction volume through our stablecoin infrastructure. A marketing investment of $5 million is required to support our global expansion. It will cover paid channels, PR activity and affiliate programmes. The rest of the funds will be added to our liquidity reserves in order to maintain regulatory capital, daily balances with exchanges, OTC trades and deposits with banking partners, Visa / MasterCard and other networks. 39 Wirex Token [ WXT ] Whitepaper WXT Token Sale Version 1.0 [ June 2019 ]
