1. ABSTRACT
Buying and selling ether remains a centralized process that’s long and difficult:
• It takes time and costs money. Registering online, depositing money and getting verified takes days or
weeks. And time is money.
• Decentralization is at the core of blockchains value proposition; yet, central entities still play a major
role in the process of buying cryptocurrencies.
• The overly complex buying process creates barriers to Ethereum mass adoption, as more than 2 billion
adults are unbanked and don’t have the necessary bank account to buy ether.
• The last mile issue in cryptocurrency transactions has yet to be solved. How to transform cryptocurrency
into cash in only minutes.
That’s why we created Dether.
WHAT IS DETHER?
Dether provides a decentralized peer-to-peer ether network that enables anyone on Earth to buy ether with
cash and spend it at physical stores nearby. No bank account is needed, just a mobile phone with internet
access. Our belief is that the b...

BREAKING BARRIERS TO ETHEREUM MASS ADOPTION
As Satoshi Nakamoto envisioned the first blockchain use case as a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system,”
people all over the globe have been increasingly using not only bitcoin, but also cryptocurrency, as a means
of payment.
With cryptocurrency you can now:
Buy a Subway sandwich in Buenos Aires.
Buy a painting in Paris.
Pay your children’s tuition fees in New York City.
Buy a deli sandwich in Melbourne.
Buy a camera in Tokyo.
And that’s just the beginning.
In this context, mobile phones are the new banks. And cryptocurrency is the new money. That’s the reason
we’ve also shaped the Dether map as a decentralized solution for any physical store willing to accept ether
as a means of payment.
No credit or debit card is needed to spend ether at physical stores.

This paper first underlines the current and future issues faced by billions of individuals at a moment
in history when Ethereum adoption, and m...

2. INTRODUCTION
With the 2007 financial crisis still leering over the economy, the need for a decentralized banking solution
has come to the forefront of ingenuity. Against the backdrop of raising awareness and the need for more
trusted global solutions, blockchain technology opened doors for new opportunities by using cutting-edge
technology to serve societies all over the world. The technology initially underlying the Bitcoin protocol
has the power to have a great impact on our society by transforming our industries. Financial services,
healthcare services, even governance: a wide range of fields could be disrupted using blockchain technology.
And by disrupting those multiple fields, it could also allow for better inclusion of populations left behind
by globalization.
When Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin, the first blockchain and its cryptocurrency, it was aimed at being a
“peer-to-peer electronic cash system.” A digital form of money that could be used by anyone, from anywhere,
and without having ...

Decentralization matters because it redistributes power back to society, without the control of a central
authority, as beautifully explained by Vitalik Buterin:

“Fault tolerance
— decentralized systems are less likely to fail accidentally because they rely on many
separate components that are not likely.

Attack resistance or seizure resistance
— decentralized systems are more expensive to attack and
destroy or manipulate because they lack sensitive central points that can be attacked at a much lower
cost than the economic size of the surrounding system.

Collusion resistance
— it is much harder for participants in decentralized systems to collude to act in
ways that benefit them at the expense of other participants.

Censorship resistance
— this is one of the most important distinguishing factors of cryptocurrencies.
Centralized systems are notoriously easy to censor. Censoring transactions allows for third parties to

As you will see below, many applications using the Ethereum blockchain are under development.
We are living in a turning point in history when Ethereum has the power to change the societies we live
in, and therefore, the world. And one of its challenges is mass adoption. By mass adoption, we mean that
anyone in the world should be able to interact with its network and have the ability to build or participate
in trustless organizations without a middleman or fiat currency barriers.
Thus,
this white paper aims to give the necessary explanation about Dether,
its context, its technology, its
market, its targets, its tokens, its team, and its current state and future development. It sums up our thoughts
and strategy in the current stage of the project and may evolve in the future. We’re building a trustless
solution needed worldwide to foster Ethereum mass adoption, and this white paper is the first step.

3. OBSERVATIONS & CURRENT CHALLENGES
3.1 THE MISSING PIECE TO MAKE CRYPTOCURRENCY A TRUE “PEER-TO-
PEER ELECTRONIC CASH SYSTEM”
Decentralization is at the heart of blockchain; it is even viewed, in the words of Vitalik Buterin , as
“blockchain’s entire raison d’être.” On the one hand, Bitcoin paved the way for the first use case of blockchain
technology; an “electronic peer-to-peer cash system” as described by Satoshi Nakamoto. What’s more,
Ethereum enables anyone to build unstoppable applications: a trustless digital world where its applications
don’t have any kind of censorship, fraud or third party interference. A world where you can participate in a
democratic and autonomous organizations without previously knowing any participants.
In fact, when one buys ether (Ethereum cryptocurrency), it then becomes possible to access and interact with
the Ethereum blockchain. While we’re living in an important time in history, where blockchain technology,
and especially Ethereum, is cha...
