EXECUTIVE SUMMARY I-1. The Genesis Blockchain technology and crypto-currencies are one of the major emerging technology trends of our century. By enabling untrusted, immutable and decentralized transactions, blockchain technology is laying the foundation for a series of next-generation applications that will enable stronger and more inclusive societies. KALYSSI's mission is to accelerate the transition to crypto-currencies. Indeed the KALYSSI team has a clear vision, to make crypto-currencies available in secure wallets, while focusing on their real use. It took a little more than three years for KALYSSI to launch the key product of its consumer offer: payment cards accepted worldwide, with its partner Visa, the KALYPAY Visa cards. Subsequently, KALYSSI has made available to customers ATMs for the purchase/sale of crypto currencies, the incorporation of traditional payment methods into the KALYPAY ecosystem, the purchase of goods and services... This approach of KALYSSI, starts from the observation that traditional payment networks do not natively accept crypto-currencies today, It is a slow and expensive process. Market process, strongly limiting the number of people we can introduce in the cryptographic ecosystem. The KALYPAY system was created to solve this problem. 7

I-2. Statement of the problem Traditional fiat currency payment systems rely on an old infrastructure that makes it difficult to adopt new and innovative forms of payment like crypto-currencies. As a reminder, traditional cash-based payment systems have essential characteristics: Highly centralized, Controlled by strict rules, resulting in a lack of flexibility Costly for participants (especially consumers), and limited flexibility (e.g., difficulty in easily integrating new innovations/currencies) In several countries, more modern digital money payment solutions have already emerged and almost replaced the traditional cashless payment system (e.g. Mobile money in Africa and Alipay/WeChatPay in Asia...). Unfortunately, the current blockchain technology is not sufficiently exploited to offer a good, efficient and personalized alternative to traditional money networks. I-3. Mission and vision Mission: Accelerate the transition to crypto-currencies Vision: The reference for regulations and transfers combining the most modern methods and technologies in any location. We strongly believe that decentralization is an important part of building a better society for all and, accelerating the world's transition to crypto-currencies. By building, on the one hand, a network of crypto-currency projects and, on the other hand, by focusing on developing the ability of merchants to accept crypto-currencies as payment (see diagram below). We want the KalyCoin network to be a high-performance blockchain solution, which will make the transaction flows between crypto-currency users and merchants accepting crypto-currencies transparent, profitable and secure, 8

Kalycoin transaction scheme Transactions 1: Transaction between 2 customers A and B, for the execution of this operation customer A transmits the order to KLC which after checking the balance executes by crediting the account of B Transaction 2: When paying at a KalyPay merchant, the transaction is transmitted to KLC, this one after verification of the exactitude of the data carries out by crediting the account of the merchant 9

MARKETING STRATEGY AND ROLE OF THE PLAYERS II-1. Marketing strategy The main differentiating factor of the KALYSSI network is its clear strategy of on the market, which should lead to rapid adoption. Six important points are at the basis of its strategy: 1. Broad and attractive offers for customers to financially encourage the use of crypto-currencies. 2. Focusing on solutions that allow customers to spend via multiple channels and online merchants to accept crypto-currencies. 3. KALYPAY's API's linked to existing gateways (payment methods) will encourage merchants to deploy them and can also offer substantial discounts to their customers. Customers will pay using the KALYPAY application. Payment will be instantaneous. 4. The non-existence of inter-client transaction fees to encourage massive use of the system. 5. Decentralization of the protocol in transaction processing. 6. The network of distributors and franchises adapted to each type of market: aware that despite the potential offered by blockchain and crypto-currencies there is a large gap, for the massive adoption of this new technology. Building a global payment network is a multi-year effort. The deployment of the KALYSSI network will therefore be done in stages, which will significantly increase the speed of adoption. 10

II-2. ROLES AND INCENTIVES We have outlined below the expected roles of the various parties who will be able to use the KALYSSI network and the incentives expected for them to use it. The Client Role: Use the network to perform inter/external transfers in the KALYPAY ecosystem, crypto-currency payments, call unit reloading, use of magnetic cards throughout the visa network. Incentives: Rebates: pay in crypto and receive rebates funded by the network, Access (time): instant access to the crypto-currency Access (distribution): ability to spend crypto-currencies directly from the crypto- currency account/portfolio at merchants, online or offline, without switching to fiat currency. The merchant Role: to accept payment methods from the KALYPAY ecosystem. Incentives: Reduced costs: free processing fee (for fiat and crypto payments) Marketing: offer customers network-funded discounts and demonstrate its ability to follow a new trend. The distributor (franchise) Role: selling KALYPAY services to the population to ensure proximity Incentives: Commission-based compensation for use of the range of services available. Marketing: KALYPAY communication tools and support and a presence in traditional media and social networks to facilitate their outreach. 11

Kalypay Role: manage the flow of funds from customers to merchants and distributors (from transaction authorization to settlement), set specifications, standards and distribute processing fees to eligible participants in exchange for their services. Kalypay Network: Expand the network of merchants accepting payments from the KALYPAY ecosystem, set compliance standards; and manage the dispute resolution process Incentives: achieve the vision of accelerating the transition to crypto-currencies and manage network transaction flows. II-3. SUPPORT TO FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS Our stated vision is to accelerate the transition to crypto-currencies, and as such, we extend an open invitation to existing mainstream financial institutions to democratize crypto-currencies. As such, these institutions could adopt blockchain technology in a number of use cases. We intend for the KALYSSI network to address the key challenges faced by these financial institutions with respect to crypto-currencies: • Secure custody of these on- and off-chain settlement digital assets in a timely and cost-effective manner • the volatility of these assets, particularly between settlements and management. KALYSSI will provide the supporting technology solutions necessary to meet the compliance and regulatory requirements of financial institutions. We want the KALYSSI network to allow these institutions to easily integrate crypto- currencies into their existing system with a few lines of code through our APIs. Have the ability to define their own rules and parameters from a business model and compliance perspective. Have direct access to our customer service team. 12

II-4. USER EXPERIENCE Customer Experience The customer journey for crypto-currency payment using the KALYPAY ecosystem is intended to be as simple and versatile as possible. Opening an account The customer opens his KALYPAY account and has instant access to multi-currency and crypto-asset wallets. From his KALYPAY account, the customer can perform reload operations via several payment methods, and he can transfer money within the entire KALYPAY ecosystem. Expansion of the customer network With the crypto-currency market booming for more than 10 years, KALYSSI adopts an aggressive marketing and integrates proximity agents with several means of payment to the KalyPay ecosystem (bank card, mobile money, merchants...) this multitudes of possibilities favors the massive adoption of the Internet of value by the users. Fees and Incentives: KalyPay community members can send each other assets internally without pay no network fees Each user is an active ambassador of the system, on each account opening when he/she makes a minimum fiat load of 50$ Kalypay pays him/her a commission in KLC. 13

Merchant Experience The implementation requirements for merchants are minimal and offer great flexibility in accepting fiat currency and crypto-currencies. How the operation is carried out Merchants use their existing payment terminal ("TPE"), or integrate the online payment gateway "KalyPay", customers pay using their wallet and merchants receive their payments instantly in KLC, stablecoin and fiat (D+3). Expansion of the merchant network KALYSSI will lead a business development team to drive acceptance, using our payment industry relationships and strong balance sheet to entice players to join the KALYPAY ecosystem. We want to target different distribution strategies and channels, including: • direct transactions between online and offline merchants • payment gateway • transactions with acquirers that currently accept credit cards. For all types of buyers, we have a suitable proposal: A growing market: access to nearly 200 million consumers worldwide who currently hold crypto-currencies, with this number expected to continue to grow with crypto- currency related services increasingly meeting consumer needs. Lower fees: merchant processing fees are near zero compared to fiat currency, resulting in higher margins for merchants, minimal integration effort, and co-marketing including financial incentives. 14

THE POTENTIAL OF THE NETWORK The creation of Bitcoin and Ethereum wallets has seen explosive growth (>10x) from 2013 to 2015 and 2016 to 2019 respectively. Figure 1 : Evolution of the number of Bitcoin addresses Figure 2 : Evolution of the number of Ethereum addresses 15

Figure 3 : Value of digital payment transactions Based on forecasts of growth in Bitcoin/Ethereum wallet creation, and taking into account users with multiple wallets as well as the overlap between wallets on each blockchain, we expect the number of crypto-currency users to reach 250-500 million by 2025. 16

III-1. Inclusion of networks KALYPAY will open its protocol to customers and merchants who wish to transact directly on its cryptographic payment network without going through an acquirer. Direct participants will be able to leverage the power of the KALYSSI network to create closed-loop community payment channels to settle crypto-currency payments for free. KALYSSI will provide participants with an easy-to-use wallet application ("App") with deposit/withdrawal and wagering and payment functions to support this decentralized process. III-2. Decentralization of the network The KALYSSI network is built with complete decentralization. In the long term, the KALYSSI network will be able to operate in a fully decentralized manner as we develop the key elements of the architecture and technology to make it possible.
