(TAC : Taekwondo Access Credit, ‘택’)
Taekwondo Cooperative (“TC”) is an autonomous association of taekwondo athletes united voluntarily around the world to meet their common needs and aspirations of conducting and participating in more amateur taekwondo competitions both locally and globally. The world’s first TC was established in Seoul, Korea (South) in 2018.
The Founders of TAC believe that the demands of the world’s amateur taekwondo athletes for interacting with a more diverse group of fellow athletes and participating in ‘겨루기[kyorugi]’, or taekwondo sparring, competitions beyond their geographic vicinities have now grown to the point that they deserve to have the world’s first league of amateur taekwondo athletes organized in the form of ‘cooperative’, which enables them to become a member of local and global pools of their fellow taekwondo athletes who share the same aspiration towards conducting and participating in periodic competitions to be organized by their regional TCs or the national / world union of TCs.
Now, let’s assume that there was a TC-organized local tournament which took place in a TC member dojang in New York City. Two taekwondo athletes, Joe and Bob, have competed with each other in -80kg division and the winner of that day was Bob. The both have paid 200 TACs each in their tournament fees while each of them also received 300 TACs from the Foundation, while Bob as the winner would be able to compete in the next fight in the tournament, getting another chance to earn more TAC tokens.
The fight between Joe and Bob, from blockchain’s standpoint, was a transaction recorded on the distributed ledger held by all TC members around the world. Joe, Bob and the referee of the game would altogether report the result of that specific match on the digital ledger of TAC blockchain over their smartphone application (or in PC setup), and upon this collective report, the Foundation would send TAC tokens to electronic wallets of the athletes and the referees for their services by an automated execution of the contract.
TAC is to be created in a finite volume (the total amount to be generated), so there is ultimately a limited supply to this token’s market. On the other hand, the demand for TAC is supposed to increase over time as our organization of cooperatives grows in size and scale globally as the members of TCs would buy and use their TAC in accessing TC platform’s services such as participating in tournaments, taking votes, paying membership dues for their training etc.
Since the token supply is limited by the total generated amount, at one point in future, the token reserve kept in the Foundation would dry up and the Foundation would no longer be able to send tokens to the participants of TC tournaments, which is bad news for sustainable operations of the cooperatives. In order to avoid that, TCs would receive tournament participation fees, charge commissions on voting events etc. in TAC tokens.
Then each TC would pay their annual fees to their country’s Cooperative Union, and the Unions are ultimately to donate a ‘consensus amount’ of TAC tokens to the Foundation which is to be decided periodically by the World Union of Taekwondo Cooperatives conference. This circulation cycle of TAC (from the Foundation to each member, then to TCs and to Unions, and then back to the Foundation) was designed to ensure a sustainable, autonomous, and democratic operations of the TC network over the world as an economic community with shared objective, as TAC is the critical means to keep the operations of TC networks running actively in such voluntary and orderly manner.
TC is a cooperative that runs on sports business. In our sports business, TCs would constantly organize tournament games by cooperating with local dojangs for logistics arrangements necessary to hold such events, and TC members would pay for such services with TAC tokens, our community currency. The fees are to vary by each country (by the national union’s policy) but at our public token offering price of 0.10 USD, we would advise all TCs to set their participation fees at 100 TACs initially. To state our perspective about the “point of contact” between Blockchain and Taekwondo;
• Blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value. In a blockchainbased network, if the peers of the network disagree about only one single input, everything is broken; in other words, they need an absolute consensus. However, in blockchain, the participants don’t need a central authority to achieve this consensus.
• In martial arts competitions in today’s sports game setup, while there are referees, an outcome of any fight ultimately depends upon ‘sportsmanship’ where each player would agree to abide by the rules and promises of the competition. Referees are there to help, but it’s ultimately the rules and promises which every participant can understand and agree to. The founders of TC saw the point of contact between sportsmanship and philosophy of blockchain, and thus have come up with an idea to introduce a blockchain platform to taekwondo communities around the world by creating a global cooperative network and its own community currency to be used in exchanging utilities on TC’s global network, to be enabled and realized by our blockchain platform.

In order to execute on this vision, we would establish a legal entity (“Taekwondo Cooperative Foundation”) in Hong Kong to conduct a series of private and public token offerings scheduled for 4Q of 2019. We would hold the reserve of the generated yet unsold amount of TAC tokens in the Taekwondo Cooperatives Foundation (the Foundation), a notfor-profit organization for sustainable operations of our global TC networks
