Dether Whitepaper

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 beauty and power of the Ethereum technology should be easily accessible to
all.

We’ve decided to put all of our energy and that of the Ethereum community into helping us build the first
trustless solution that will allow anyone to be able to interact with the Ethereum blockchain no matter who
you are, where you are, and without the need for a middleman.
