EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
JioCoin is a new cryptocurrency based on the Ethereum blockchain that will be distributed by
your national telecom operator and made available to everyone, anytime, anywhere. This is the
core of our business, and mobile network operators will be at the center of our strategy.
JioCoin aims to build the world’s first dec
entralized mobile network, which will extend network
coverage, reduce the cost of telecom infrastructures, and reward users for sharing unused
network assets.
JioCoin is the first cryptocurrency to tap into synergies between the reach of mobile telecoms
and the fast, borderless nature of blockchain technology. According to the World Bank, there
are nearly five times as many mobile phones in the world (6 billion), as there are active bank
accounts (1.4 billion). It's a lot easier to access mobile phone services than banking services,
and we aim 1 to capitalize on that disparity.
We will initially offer JioCoin to our mobile network partners, providing their ...

THE PROBLEM WITH CENTRALIZED TELECOM OPERATIONS
Currently, more than 2000 mobile network operators around the world are providing
communication services through inflexible centralized infrastructure. Common examples of
these centralized services include Wi
‐Fi, 3G / 4G network facilities and mobile communication
BOSS solutions (billing and operation supporting system), to Nasdaq listed companies such as
Twilio, who provide corporate SMS / voice / data and other cloud based communication
services. A common business model of these centralized mobile network operators (including
virtual operators) is as follows:
Unfortunately, this widely adopted centralized system is largely inflexible and has many issues.
These include difficulty in accurate content distribution and billing, expensive usage based fees,
operators overcharging customers, and security issues surrounding data transmission. Unlike a
centralized model, decentralized communication infrastructure and service operations do not
have ...

JIOCOIN PLATFROM
JioCoin’s decentralized network provides telecom service through an ecosystem comprised of
telecom assets, the Public Chain, the JioCoin Chain, smart contracts, mobile operators, content
providers and users.
Definitions:
Telecom Service:
A telecom service is a service used to access, accept, transmit and
deliver information of content from one point to another, such as Wi
‐Fi access, mobile
data access, SMS, voice, quality of service, or virtual private network.
Telecom Asset:
A telecom asset is broadly defined as a telecom service, which is
owned by users or carriers. Examples of telecom assets are Wi
‐Fi hotspots, SMS
packages, mobile data, or hardware used to create network coverage, such as a router
or base station.
JioCoin provides telecom services through the JioCoin network. By utilizing blockchain
technology, JioCoin is able to transfer JIO tokens whilst delivering telecom services, making it
possible to generate a ledger of...

WHY PARTNER WITH TELECOMS?
By partnering with mobile operators, JioCoin can avoid key points of friction that have
prevented similar projects from succeeding: trust, reach, and KYC compliance.
Trust
Cryptocurrencies suffer a major trust issue. The instantaneous nature of transactions is a
double-edged sword, and cryptocurrencies have been featured in numerous recent stories
involving hackers stealing funds. JioCoin strives to be a complementary partner in the
cryptocurrency ecosystem, and we hope to drive greater adoption of cryptocurrency in general,
as many early JioCoin users will likely use it as a doorway to purchase other cryptocurrencies.
We are offering to leverage telecoms’ existing trust level with customers to provide an easy
bridge between mobile money and cryptocurrency.
As described in the Security Challenges section, default security for subscribers who convert
mobile money to JioCoin will involve a multi-signature wallet, preventing large JioCoin
movements without two of ...

Reach
According to the GSM Association, more than 5 billion people have mobile phones. Reaching
potential users can be difficult and costly for any new business. JioCoin will create a symbiotic
relationship with telecoms in order to capitalize on their vast reach. By incentivizing mobile
operators to partner with us - through the issuance of JioCoin described in the Cryptocurrency
Details section - we will gain immediate access to their existing subscriber base. We will provide
incentives to telecoms, which will promote JioCoin in order to maximize their own revenue
from issuance.
We also feel that JioCoin will drive further adoption of mobile money by adding practical use
cases. Expanding mobile money adoption is a top priority of telecom CEOs in the developing
world, as it has proven to generate a higher return on investment (ROI) compared to allocations
for network infrastructure. Telecoms' global reach and their potential to spread digital financial
services is still largely untapped. As severa...

will leverage existing telecom KYC in place for mobile money access and work with the telecoms
to meet standards required for cryptocurrency.
By partnering with telecoms, JioCoin strives to solve basic trust, marketing, and compliance
challenges that have inhibited cryptocurrency adoption to date.
WORKING WITH TELECOM OPERATORS
As core telecom service
s are becoming commoditized, operators need to seek differentiators to remain
profitable and grow. Financial services are an important part of that growth picture and cryptocurrency
offers an opportunity to differentiate in the market.
JioCoin aims to contribute to the mobile financial
services ecosystem as a complement to existing telecom
mobile money platforms. We believe that
by offering subscribers easy access to
JioCoin, we can help drive greater usage of mobile money
and increase mobile operator revenue.
JioCoin is realistic about the challenges associated with working with telecom operators. We
believe they ar...

rapid access would not be practical. So we are working with global, regional, and local
aggregators to initially connect to as many telecom airtime and mobile money platforms
globally as possible.
Along with crypto wallet and outbound “cash in” remittance partners, this will allow JioCoin to
rapidly deliver an end-to-end product for JioCoin access. We can also then rapidly deploy
products on top of this basic access, namely remittance and card payments, as soon as partners
can be identified in key markets to facilitate regulatory compliance.
In many remittance corridors today, “cash out” wi
th mobile operators occurs via mobile airtime
just as much if not more than via fiat currency in mobile money accounts. Our goal is to as
quickly as possible enable the ability to send JioCoin to any mobile phone number in the world.
To this end, we are establishing connections to airtime platforms via aggregators, while going
through the process of securing mobile money connection capability in each mar...
