 Obligations of Exchange operators
 Exchange operators have to adhere to the fee schedule. Otherwise they can lose 
their interface access, have their certification revoked and, moreover, even 
become liable for damages. For each transaction type there is one specific fee 
type. Exchange operators set the fee amount. If a fee type is set to a value of 
0, this fee type will not contribute to the operator's income from fees.

 Obligations of merchants/sellers
 Normally, a plurality of buyers' spending transactions is summed up to one 
aggregated amount of revenue and wired to the receiving checking account of the 
merchant. Merchants can set the frequency by which these aggregated amounts are 
wired. Every wire transfer imposes costs on the Exchange operator collected by 
the operator's bank for having the amount wired. Therefore, the Exchange 
operator will tend to charge the 'Wire fee' to the sellers for this transaction

 Technical framework conditions for the collection of fees
 Fees are charged per coin or per wire transfer. The number of coins at 
withdrawal usually increases logarithmically with the amount represented. Fees 
can be applied to both flow quantities (e.g. coins moved at withdrawal and 
deposit transactions) and static quantities (e.g. coins stored in wallets). The 
fees on coins may differ depending on the time of issuance of a coin and 
depending on the value of a coin. They are fixed for each coin at its time of 
issuance, and cannot be changed subs [...]
