Introduction
The success of Bitcoin
Satoshi Nakamoto’s seminal Bitcoin white paper proposed a revolutionary new
digital currency. It was based on its predecessor Hashcash and the proof-of-work
concept, originally proposed by Dwork and Naor in 1992 as a means of combatting
junk email.
So why did Bitcoin achieve such explosive economic value while its
predecessors were mostly of academic interest only?
Real implementation
More than just a white paper, “Satoshi” released the open source reference imple-
mentation in 2009. Because Bitcoin itself was more than just a white paper, but an
actual working system, it was able to capture the imagination of developers and
leverage the paradigm of open source software development, to quickly iterate and
improve into a global-class financial infrastructure.
More importantly, Bitcoin is an open system that allows for evolution through fork-
ing and as such provides an assurance of its long term trustworthiness. If stake-
holders ...

The problems of Bitcoin
The biggest problem with Bitcoin at the moment is that it has not broken out into
mainstream adoption. One study pegs the number of active cryptocurrency users
to between 2.9 and 5.8 million.
This paper proposes a solution for adding a billion users to the cryptocurrency
movement by adding two key elements missing in order to provide significant
adoption by mainstream users.
The next billion users have not yet entered cryptocurrency for two main reasons:
Too complicated
Cryptocurrency suffers from complexity for the average user. Managing private
keys, public keys, blockchain concepts—it’s all vastly out of the reach of the aver-
age user. In some cases the next Billion users may even barely be able to operate
a smartphone.
Not relevant
Today, the only thing you can buy with a cryptocurrency are other cryptocurren-
cies. The vast majority of people have no involvement with this process and no
interest.
Until the average user can use cry...

The solution
This paper presents Sidera platform for consumerizing cryptocurrencies by ena-
bling their use in retail Point of Sale (POS) through a smartwatch and a contactless
smartband.
Following in the footsteps of Bitcoin, Sidera has the same properties of Real Imple-
mentation, Open Governance and Incentivization that allows for the rapid global
expansion of the solution.
Real implementation
Sidera is a complete end-to-end solution for contactless and smartwatch retail
point-of- sale (POS) including a full-stack reference implementation of all the com-
ponents.
It includes a mobile application and point-of-sale (POS) terminals that are already
in deployment. All of these components will be made widely available through
open source and open specifications.
By releasing the full-stack reference implementations as open source and open
specifications, we can enable ubiquitous worldwide distribution of the Sidera proto-
cols and ensure the rapid expansion of the value of...

Incentivization
The Sidera network incentivizes participation through providing free hardware to
retail stores in the initial target geography in Europe. Users are incentivized to par-
ticipate in the Sidera network through accessibility and ease of use, with the con-
venience of mobile payments and the simplicity of a smartwatch .
With a solution that decreases complexity and adds relevance of cryptocurrencies
to end users, we will see rapid mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies and the
merging of the crypto-economy (current estimated value in October 2017 of 170B)
with the much larger mainstream economy (estimated value 214T).

Vision
The next billion crypto-users
Sidera will help to generate demand for new and old, as well as big and small cryp-
tocurrencies.
No other online cryptocurrency exchange can bring in new cryptocurrency users
from this segment and in the same number, thanks to our powerful focus on
attracting the consumer market.
From 9 million to 100 million
With future growth in mind, let’s look at some relevant statistics as of October
2017:
- Bitcoin price is approximately USD 7,800
- Bitcoin market capitalization is approximately USD 100 billion
- Trading frequency is 250,000 times
- Trade volume is USD 900 million.

With trading volume accounting for 1.1% of total volume, the reason bitcoin had
such respectable numbers is because there may be as many as 5.8 and 11.5 mil-
lion
- an average of 8.7 million - active wallets.
However, the global bitcoin wallet ownership numbers do not even reach 2% of the
population of South East Asia.

100 million users in 3 years
Sidera is concentrating initial traction efforts on South East Asia and China. Half of
all South East Asians live in Indonesia. In China there are more than 700 millions
of internet users. We have local team with a deep understanding of the Indonesian
and Chinese market - plus we have track record, connections and products to
match the local market’s needs.
We will spend the next two years building an extensive coverage of convenience
stores, shopping malls, retail shops, chain outlets, cafe, restaurants and other out-
lets. We will use Sidera and SmartBit apps to coverage an even greater number of
smaller sellers. Our goal is for users to be able to buy and spend cryptocurrency
within seconds worldwide with a simply smartwatch.
