THESE TERMS OF TOKEN SALES DO NOT CONSITITUTE ANY OFFERING, INVITATION, OR SOLICITATION OF ANY INVESTMENT AND DO NOT PERTAIN TO AN OFFERING, INVITATION, OR COLICITATION TO PURCHASE SECURITIES IN ANY JURISDICTION. THESE TERMS HAVE NOT BEEN OR WILL BE SUBMITTED TO, REGISTERED WITH, REVIEWED OR VERIFIED BY ANY REGULATORY AUTHORITY IN ANY JURISDICTION.
These Terms of Token Sale (the “Terms”) govern your purchase of CMS tokens (“Tokens”) during the Token sale period (the “Sale Period”) from Tech Bureau, Corp., a seller of Tokens (the “Company,” “Seller,” “we,” or “us” ). Please read these Terms carefully, and contact us at https://comsa.io/en/#contact if you have any questions. By purchasing Tokens from us during the Sale Period, you will be bound by these Terms and all terms incorporated by reference. You shall refrain from supporting the Token sale or purchasing any CMS Token unless you agree to these Terms. Each of you and the Seller is referred to as a “Party,” and together the “Parties.”
You and the Seller agree as follows:
COMSA is a gateway for multiple public blockchains which is being developed by the Seller’s wholly owned subsidiary located in Switzerland (the “Developer”). The purpose of the Tokens is to facilitate the use of COMSA platform by various enterprises including those with a centralized business model, thereby help such enterprises have an access to decentralized ecosystem. Specifically, Tokens are intended to work as an incentive for the holders to support traditional enterprises who would like to employ public blockchain solutions like Ethereum and Nem on top of the COMSA platform. Important details regarding the Developer, Company, Tokens and COMSA platform are provided in Exhibit A.
This Token sale is a reward-based crowdfunding conducted globally, and Tokens are mere digital record of contribution on a blockchain as a reward for supporting the COMSA project.

Zaif Exchange. Zaif Exchange is one of the largest Virtual Currency Exchanges in Japan which is operated by Company. It is the oldest operating Japanese Bitcoin exchange, having established itself since April 2014. As of the end of September, Company is registered as a licensed Virtual Currency Exchange Service Provider under the Payment Services Act of Japan (the “PSA”), which newly introduces a registration system for Virtual Currency Exchange Services to Japanese legislation. ,
Zaif Exchange will provide the following services as part of the COMSA solution.
- Assisting clients with having their tokens listed on Zaif Exchange if duly permitted by the relevant authority;
- Providing “/BTC” and “/ETH” pairs for all tokens sold on top of the COMSA Platform, if they are permitted to be traded at Zaif Exchange;
- Backing the pegged tokens issued on top of the COMSA Platform with segregated accounts.
- Multi-language support. (English is planned in year 2017)
- Providing payment services to allow holders to pay in tokens.
Mijin. Mijin is a private blockchain technology platform developed and distributed by Company. Mijin platform is developed by the same core developers of the NEM blockchain project. Based on the NEM protocol, mijin allows any entity to build high transaction throughputs in a private blockchain using a peer to peer network.
Mijin has various use cases which prove it to be a robust and practical blockchain product. These use cases include:
- World’s first bank ledger solution to be tested by a Japanese Internet bank.
- World’s first application for micro financing by Infoteria.
- High throughput loyalty point system by Hitachi Solutions.
- Logistics POC for Seino Transportation Co.,Ltd.
- POC for Chubu Electric Power Co.,Inc.
- More than 300 businesses testing or using the mijin in the CloudChain beta program hosted by Sakura Internet: NEC, NTT Data Getronics, TIS, NRI, and more.
COMSA. COMSA is a platform for the token sales that will be developed by Developer with a financial support from you though this token sale campaign. COMSA platform is composed of two integral systems, namely COMSA CORE and COMSA HUB.
COMSA CORE. COMSA CORE is a conversion network, which consists of a controlling application, an oracle application and 2 mijin private blockchain networks build on 9 cloud server machines that are distributed globally to achieve zero-downtime token conversion service. COMSA CORE monitors incoming transfers of cryptocurrencies or tokens into a COMSA master account with the final destination details embedded in them. It then locks or burns that amount in the COMSA master account. At the same time, it also unlocks or generates equivalent cryptocurrencies or tokens on the corresponding blockchain and sends them to their final destination account.
COMSA HUB. COMSA HUB is a software for licensed holders of mijin private blockchains to control token balances between master public blockchain accounts and internal private ledgers. COMSA HUB can be installed as a part of any mijin private blockchain network as an independent service controlled by the business using it. While COMSA CORE controls inter-exchange of cryptocurrencies or tokens on the corresponding blockchain, COMSA HUB deals with a link between client assets on a public blockchain and the internal ledger on the mijin private blockchain inside the client’s network. COMSA HUB monitors incoming transfers of cryptocurrencies or tokens to the clisnt’s public master account with final destinations included in a message. It locks that amount in the client’s public master account. Subsequently, it creates the equivalent private tokens inside the client’s mijin private blockchain and sends it to the corresponding account. When it detects an outgoing transaction by receiving an incoming transfer to the client’s private master account with the final destinations included in the message, COMSA HUB burns these tokens on the mijin private blockchain and unlocks the cryptocurrency or tokens on the public blockchain and sends them to the corresponding address.
The Tokens are based on two protocols. One is the Ethereum protocol that confirms to the ERC20 standards. The other is Nem mosaic protocol. The utility of the Tokens could be enhanced over time to the extent that more enterprises adopt the COMSA solution. Company or Developer will not support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of Tokens. Seller will transfer a certain number of Tokens from Seller’s wallet to the purchasers’ during the Sale Period, according to procedures set forth in Exhibit B below.
At the Token sale, Seller will sell 50% of the total number of Tokens to be issued during the Sale Period. The price per Token will be $1.00 in either of Bitcoin, Ether or Nem, the three assets that Seller will accept as payment for Tokens, according to applicable U.S. dollar/Bitcoin, U.S. dollar/Ether and U.S. dollar/Nem exchange rates published on cryptocompare.com as of the time your unique deposit address receives Bitcoin, Ether or Nem from you as payment for Tokens, according to the procedures set forth in Section 3 of this Exhibit B. Seller reserves the right to lower the price per Token, at its sole discretion, during the Sale Period.
Seller will conduct a token sale, which will begin at 14:00 JST (5:00 AM UTC) on October 2nd, 2017 (the “Launch Date”) and closes at 14:00 JST (5:00 AM UTC) on November 6th, 2017 (the “Close Date”).
There is no minimum or cap number of Tokens set for the Token sale. To ensure 50% of the total number of Tokens are sold to the crowd, immediately after the Close Date, Seller will issue the number of Tokens equal to the number of Tokens sold to crowd during the Sale Period to Company which are retained by Company, meaning that 100% more Tokens will be issued to Company over the subscribed number. Immediately after completion of additional issuance, the issuance will be locked (the total number of Tokens sold to crowd and retained by Company is hereby referred to as “Outstanding Number”).
More precisely, to make the Ethereum-based Tokens and the Nem Mosaic-based Tokens are mutually exchangeable by one to one, Seller will generate the Outstanding Number of Ethereum-based Tokens and the Outstanding Number of Nem Mosaic-based Tokens, and if X number of Ethereum-based Tokens are held by the crowd or Company, then X number of Nem Mosaic-based Tokens are locked within the system, thereby the total number of Ethereum-based Tokens and Nem Mosaic-based Tokens that are unlocked is the Outstanding Number. After the launch of COMSA services, either type of Tokens is mutually exchangeable at any time in one to one ratio through the system, and the Tokens sent to the system are locked while the Tokens delivered in exchange are unlocked, thereby the total number of Tokens outstanding and available for use is always the Outstanding Number.
To purchase Tokens during the Sale Period, you must have certain token wallets established and operational. Specifically, you must have: (i) either an Ethereum wallet if you wish to purchase Tokens using Ether, a Bitcoin wallet if you wish to purchase Tokens using Bitcoin, and a Nem wallet if you wish to purchase Tokens using Nem and (ii) either an Ethereum wallet that supports the ERC20 token standard in order to receive Ethereum-based Tokens that you purchase from Seller, or a NanoWallet in order to receive Nem Mosaic-based Tokens that you purchase from Seller. Seller reserves the right to prescribe additional guidance regarding specific wallet requirements.
At the Launch Date, Seller will make available a web application to facilitate your purchase and receipt of Tokens. If you wish to purchase Tokens, you must first provide either your Bitcoin address (if you wish to purchase Tokens using Bitcoin), your Ethereum address (if you wish to purchase Tokens using Ether) or your Nem address (if you wish to purchase Tokens using Nem) to the web application as a return address. Seller is collecting return addresses so that it may return purchasers’ Bitcoin, Ether or Nem in the event that unforeseen circumstances cause Seller to decide not to proceed with the sale of Tokens. Second, you will need to provide an Ethereum ERC20 compatible wallet address (if you wish to receive Ethereum-based Tokens) or a NanoWallet address (if you wish to receive Nem Mosaic-based Tokens) for the delivery of Tokens you purchase. Seller may also request certain optional information, such as an email address, through the web interface.
The web application will then send you a unique deposit address for Bitcoin (if you provided a Bitcoin address), Ether (if you provided an Ethereum address) or Nem (if you provided an Nem address). Once the unique deposit address has received Bitcoin, Ether or Nem from you, Seller will deliver Tokens to the wallet address that you provided to Seller for delivery of the Tokens.
Seller anticipates that delivery of Tokens to purchasers will occur within one week after the Sale Period concludes, but reserves the right to delay delivery up to four weeks after the conclusion of the Sale Period. Although Seller does not anticipate any security issues arising from the sale of Tokens, this four week timeframe is intended as a precautionary buffer period for Seller to resolve any such security issues.
Each of you who purchases Tokens during the Sale Period agrees that the exchange rate applicable to you (i.e., either BTC/USD, ETH /USD or XEM/USD depending on the cryptocurrency you have chosen to purchase Tokens) is the rate obtained at CryptoCompare (https://www.cryptocompare.com/) through its API as at the time Seller receives either Bitcoin, Ether or Nem from you at Seller’s unique deposit address.
Seller does not set a minimum or a maximum number of Tokens to be sold during the Sale Period. Immediately after the close of Sale Period, Seller will issue the number of Tokens equal to the number of Tokens sold during the Sale Period to Company, and then the issuance is locked. All Tokens will be of equal functionality. Tokens delivered to purchasers and retained by Company are either Ethereum-based Tokens or Nem Mosaic-based Tokens, as instructed by each purchaser or Company. Seller anticipates that Tokens to be delivered to Company are all Nem Mosaic-based Tokens. In any way, the aggregate number of Tokens delivered to purchasers and Company is exactly the Outstanding Number.
Immediately after the Sale Period, the same number of Tokens sold to purchasers during the Sale Period (including pre-sale period mentioned in Section 8 below) will be generated and retained by Seller (the “Retained Tokens”).
Seller anticipates to use the Retained Tokens to compensate its employees (including salaries and non-salary compensation), to fund future development of COMSA and related systems, provide grants to third-parties working on projects in the COMSA ecosystem, and support general development of the COMSA ecosystem. Specifically, 10% of the Retained Tokens will be distributed as referral bonuses to Token sale referrers. 40% of the Retained Tokens will be distributed to existing management team, stakeholders, developers, employees, contractors, and COMSA ICO committee management. 50% of the Retained Tokens will be retained by Seller for future development, future distributions, marketing, partnerships, compensations, and expansions.
Except to the extent paid as compensation for work performed for Developer or Company, neither the founders nor the existing Company investors will receive Retained Tokens from Company or any amount of the Ether, Bitcoin or Nem that is contributed to purchase Tokens from Company during the Sale Period.
Seller may commit to sell a certain portion of Tokens before the Launch Date (“Token Pre-Sales”). Under such Token Pre-Sale arrangements, by agreeing to pay Seller for Tokens before the Launch Date, a Token Pre-Sale purchaser may purchase Tokens at a discounted rate. Currently Seller intends to give an opportunity to participate in the Token Pre-Sale campaign to purchasers who intend to contribute U.S. dollar 100,000 equivalent Ether, Bitcoins or Nem. Pre-Sale purchasers are entitled to receive 20% more of the Tokens for their payment. For example, a Pre-Sale purchaser will receive 120,000 Tokens in exchange for U.S. dollar 100,000 equivalent Ether, Bitcoins or Nem. Seller will issue an invoice to you who is designated as a Pre-Sale purchaser in Seller’s sole discretion (the “Qualified Purchaser”). The Qualified Purchaser who wishes to join the Token Pre-Sale shall place an order to purchase Tokens within 48 hours after its receipt of the invoice. The Qualified Purchaser agrees that the exchange rate applicable to such Qualified Purchaser (i.e., either BTC/USD, ETH /USD or XEM /USD depending on the cryptocurrency such Qualified Purchaser has chosen to purchase Tokens) is the rate obtained at Zaif (https://zaif.jp/login) combined with Yahoo! Developer Network (https://developer.yahoo.com/) for BTC/USD and XEM/USD and Cryptocompare.com (https://www.cryptocompare.com/) for ETH/USD, each as at the time Seller receives a binding order to purchase Tokens in accordance with these Terms from such Qualified Purchaser. Token Pre-Sale purchasers must acknowledge and agree to be bound by these Terms, and receive Tokens pursuant to the procedures for receiving Tokens set forth in Section 3 of this Exhibit B. Seller will issue each Qualified Purchaser who has made a payment in accordance with these Terms an electronic certificate recorded on Nem public blockchain that utilizes NEM Apostille.
The Bitcoin, Ether and Nem proceeds from Tokens sale will be used to compensate technical and non-technical staff, cover marketing costs and operating expenses, and develop technical infrastructure. Currently, we plan to use the proceeds for the following:
- Development of COMSA token sale platform.
- Development of the COMSA CORE
- Development of the COMSA HUB.
- Development of crypto pegged tokens system.
- Development of fiat pegged tokens system.
- Add multi-language user interface and customer support to Zaif Exchange (English, Chinese and more).
- Add streamlined processes to list any ERC-20 tokens or Nem Mosaic tokens on Zaif Exchange.
- Add “/XEM” and “/ETH” to all the currency pairs.
- PR and marketing of COMSA solution and its related services.
Important Note: As noted elsewhere in these Terms, the Tokens are not being structured or sold as securities or any other form of investment product. Accordingly, none of the information presented in this Exhibit C is intended to form the basis for any investment decision, and no specific recommendations are intended. Developer and Company expressly disclaims any and all responsibility for any direct or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever arising directly or indirectly from: (i) reliance on any information contained in this Exhibit C, (ii) any error, omission or inaccuracy in any such information or (iii) any action resulting from such information.
A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of Tokens stored in your digital wallet or vault. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet or vault storing Tokens will result in loss of such Tokens. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet service you use, may be able to misappropriate your Tokens.
Because Tokens are based on the Ethereum and Nem protocols, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the Ethereum/Nem protocols may have a material adverse effect on the Tokens. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the Tokens by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the respective protocols.
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on the public blockchain protocol, the Tokens are susceptible to attacks by miners in the course of validating Token transactions on the applicable blockchain, including, but not limited, to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, and selfish-mining attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Tokens, including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of transactions involving Tokens.
Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the Tokens in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing.
The Tokens are intended to be used solely to expand the COMSA ecosystem. Company does not guarantee to support or otherwise facilitate any secondary trading or external valuation of Tokens. If Company were to support Tokens to be publicly traded on its Zaif Exchange, the listing requires a change of business statement that is registered with the local finance bureau, so that it is subject to a review of the regulator. This will create illiquidity risk with respect to the Tokens you hold.
Unlike bank accounts or accounts at some other financial institutions, Tokens are uninsured unless you specifically obtain private insurance to insure them. Thus, in the event of loss or loss of utility value, there is no public insurer, such as the Deposit Insurance Corporation, or private insurance arranged by us, to offer recourse to you.
The regulatory status of the Tokens, sale of Tokens and distributed ledger technology is far from clear or settled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether regulatory agencies may apply existing regulation with respect to such technology and its applications, including the the Tokens. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether legislatures or regulatory agencies may implement changes to law and regulation affecting distributed ledger technology and its applications, including the Tokens. Regulatory actions could negatively impact the Tokens in various ways, including, for purposes of illustration only, through a determination that Tokens are a regulated financial instrument that require registration or licensing, even before the Tokens are publicly traded. Company may cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that regulatory actions, or changes to law or regulation, make it illegal to operate in such jurisdiction, or commercially undesirable to obtain the necessary regulatory approval(s) to operate in such jurisdiction.
The tax characterization of Tokens is uncertain. You must seek your own tax advice in connection with purchasing Tokens, which may result in adverse tax consequences to you, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements.
It is possible that COMSA platform will not be used by a large number of enterprises or projects so that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems more generally. Such a lack of use or interest could negatively impact the development of the COMSA ecosystem and therefore the potential utility of Tokens.
The COMSA Platform is still under development and may undergo significant changes over time. Although we intend for the Tokens and COMSA platform to follow the specifications set forth in Exhibit A, and intend to take commercially reasonable steps toward those ends, we may have to make changes to the specifications of the Tokens or COMSA platform for any number of legitimate reasons.
This could create the risk that the Tokens or COMSA platform, as further developed and maintained, may not meet your expectations at the time of purchase. Furthermore, despite our good faith efforts to develop and maintain COMSA platform, it is still possible that COMSA platform will experience malfunctions or otherwise fail to be adequately developed or maintained, which may negatively impact COMSA platform and Tokens.
We intends to use the proceeds from selling Tokens to fund the maintenance and development of COMSA ecosystem, as described further in Exhibit B. The proceeds of the Token sale will be denominated in Ether, Bitcoin or Nem, and may be converted into other cryptographic and fiat currencies. If the value of Ether or other currencies fluctuates unfavorably during or after the Sale Period, we may not be able to fund development, or may not be able to develop or maintain COMSA platform in the manner that it intended.
It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of cryptographic and fiat currencies, decrease in the Tokens’ utility, the failure of commercial relationships, or intellectual property ownership challenges, Company or Seller may dissolve.
Other than community voting system that might be implemented either within the Tokens or wallet, because Tokens confer no governance rights of any kind with respect to the COMSA ecosystem or Developer, Company or its corporate affiliates, all decisions involving COMSA ecosystem or Company, Seller or its corporate affiliates will be made by Company at its sole discretion, including, but not limited to, decisions to discontinue COMSA initiative, to create and sell more Tokens for use in COMSA platform, or to sell or liquidate Company. These decisions could adversely affect the COMSA ecosystem and the Tokens you hold. To mitigate risks relating to a lack of governance rights in COMSA, Developer and Seller anticipate that ICO Committee appropriately functions with a support of community voting system. However, it is uncertain whether this attempt will be successful.
Cryptographic tokens such as the Tokens are a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Exhibit C, there are other risks associated with your purchase, holding and use of Tokens, including those that Company or Developer cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in this Exhibit C.
