Abstract
This White Paper describes our technology stack with dynamic financial mechanics of a crypto-
graphically sealed utility token, offered as CafeCoin, designed to potentially achieve mass market
adoption through transactions in goods and services. CafeCoin addresses significant current market
demand, is anonymity-agnostic, and is expected to initially be based on either Ethereum or the
Stellar Consensus Protocol. It is anticipated that CafeCoin will appreciate steadily over time and
provide an inflation hedge.
CafeCoin is developed by Columbia University Ph.D. scientists in financial accounting, engineering,
and statistics. The conceptual benefits of CafeCoin are fast transaction times, low transaction fees,
price stability, and simplicity of use for consumers and merchants via the intuitive user interface of
CafeCoin’s companion mobile application. The CafeCoin Foundation (“The Foundation”) antici-
pates the launch of CafeCoin with established, first-mover brick-and-mortar corporat...

Current Market Scenario
Since the debut of Satoshi Nakamoto’s Bitcoin, there have been thousands of coin/token projects
designed with a common vision for a fully decentralized, cryptographically sealed and publicly
validated value exchange mechanism.
Yet, to date no single utility token has achieved wide-scale adoption with typical brick-and-mortar
stores as well as online merchants, or with the average consumer.
Despite the proliferation of cryptocoin ATMs, hardware wallets, consumer marketing and main-
stream media buzz, the major cryptocurrency projects predominantly trade as a separate class
of digital assets with highly speculative valuations. As such, these cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin,
Ethereum, Ripple, etc.) trade with a high degree of volatility, which takes away the promise
of actual utility to stores, merchants and consumers as a viable alternative to fiat money. Conse-
quently, current cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin behave more like gold or other collectible items,
rather tha...

1. Build initial corporate relationships (starting with the high-margin retail coffee sector), of-
fering incentives for both consumer and merchant adoption.
2. Leverage new and cutting edge distributed ledger, Hashgraph and/or blockchain technologies
to achieve high volume, and near real-time transactions for exceedingly minimal fees in the
marketplace.

3. Simplify payment processes and access to coin liquidity by utilizing an intuitive hardware-
agnostic mobile application and user interface that encourages broad consumer and merchant
transactional activity.
4. Provide a quantitative framework for reducing volatility in CafeCoin.

Building incentive structures that leverage inherent utility present within distributed ledger and
blockchain technology (e.g., the Stellar Consensus Protocol discussed in Section 6.1), and designing
a system that is capable of broad adoption over a wide range of mobile devices, will enable CafeCoin
to be the utility token most widely and activel...

Minimizing Volatility, Maximizing Value
5.1
Stability: Cryptocurrencies vs Fiat Money
One of the main challenges for cryptocurrencies is to maintain stability for executing transactions,
while also being freely traded on exchange markets. Traditional cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin suffer
from a myriad of defects such as extreme price volatility, slow transaction speed, and high trans-
action fees, thus making merchants reluctant to accept it as a payment instrument. Hence, they
more closely resemble an investment in digital gold or collectible items, and act less like a medium
of payment. This raises questions regarding the long-term utility of existing cryptocurrencies, since
one cannot efficiently use them as a reliable means of exchange for goods and services.

1. Under no circumstances will The CafeCoin Foundation release new CafeCoins into the mar-
ketplace below the Spacher Point.
2. The total quantity of new CafeCoins issued shall be capped at not more than three times
the average coin volume traded daily over the previous 20 days during any six month period.
When determining the quantity of new coin issuance, The CafeCoin Foundation will adhere to
the mathematical formulation (

) based on Volume Weighted Average Pricing (VWAP) to ensure
market fairness with minimal direct market price impact. The CafeCoin Foundation will apply the
formula based on real time market data provided by leading worldwide cryptocurrency exchanges
on which CafeCoin may trade.

the following mathematical formulation. In particular, suppose that inflation is x% per year, and

CafeCoins have been circulated in the public float. Then the inflation mechanism releases more

The CafeCoin Foundation will target a weighted average of US and Chinese CPI as officially reported
by the World Bank. The relative weights assigned to each economy’s inflation rate will be based on
the total non-purchasing power parity (PPP) adjusted National Gross Domestic Product (NGDP)
of the Chinese/US economies. The Foundation shall calculate the following quantities:

Technology Stack and Usage Models
The CafeCoin Foundation is working with technology experts to create the “CafeCoin Pay,” or “CC
Pay” system, which is the macro technological ecosystem, comprised of consumer and merchant
applications, requisite supporting software, and the CafeCoin token as a means of payment in the
ecosystem. The companion software is planned to include both mobile and desktop applications, and
be usable by both consumers and merchants. Code from either the well-proven Ethereum blockchain
or the open source Stellar-Core project (licensed under the Apache V2.0 License) is anticipated to
form the underlying structure of the CafeCoin platform. For example, the underlying structure of
the CafeCoin platform if developed on Stellar is described below, See Figure 3.
