About the Association
The Telcoin Association is a non-profit organization representing the interests of GSMA Mobile Networks and other stakeholders in maintaining and developing the Telcoin Platform.
The Telcoin Association, a Swiss Verein domiciled in the Canton of Ticino in the City of Lugano, Switzerland, is the legal entity which enables and protects miners coming together to run the Telcoin Platform, legitimizes the community’s rights to organize and create, enforce their own rules for interacting with the Platform and each other with legal recognition and basis. The Verein is an Association of persons and/or entities coming together to facilitate a business or activity. It has minimal requirements as to formality, which allows for flexibility as the community evolves, but also provides necessary formality and legal status so that other persons will be able to interact with it and its limited liability structure enforced. An association business model has been around for a very long time and many international businesses use this for their operations. Switzerland’s Verein structure is well supported and recognized throughout the world. It is particularly well-suited for the varied needs of a decentralized organization and its participants.
Objectives: To wrap Telcoin governance in a legal association structure and empower the community of Telcoin Miners with:
Mission, Vision, and Values
The Telcoin Association Constitution articulates a Mission, Vision, and set of Values to serve as a guidepost for the community to order its behavior towards a common cause, vision for the future, and set of ethical standards.
The Telcoin Association Constitution ("Association") is the primary governance document for the Association. It sets forth the parameters for how the Association itself is to be overseen and how Association members operate together in running the Association.
Telcoin Association Rationale
