SMS Network Overview

The SMS Network is a user-owned remittance product that leverages AMMs to enable users to send instant, global, decentralized foreign exchange (FX) and transfer, and to capture FX fees for providing self-custodial liquidity to smart contract based token reserves. The following transaction flows demonstrate how various SMS Network remittance types execute, settle, and deliver from sender to recipient through the Telcoin Platform.

Notes:

1. Users of the Telcoin Mobile Application will simply follow the same intuitive steps they use today to send traditional remittances, with the beneficiary having the ultimate choice of receiving local fiat or a supported digital asset (where available). The following is meant to show how the product works "under the hood" after the user clicks "confirm" of a remittance transfer through the SMS network.

2. Each transaction includes a nominal transaction fee paid to Telcoin by users.
