An algorithm was developed by previous researcher for elliptic scalar multiplication (SM) on Koblitz curve where the multiplier of SM is in the form of Pseudo -adic Non-Adjacent (pseudoTNAF). PseudoTNAF of an element of the ring Z ) where is an expansion where the digits are generated by successively dividing by , allowing remainders of , 0 or 1. Such a multiplier is in the form of . In this paper, we refine some properties of the multiplier from previous researchers focusing on even and odd situation for and . We also propose two properties of when is even and is odd. As a result, the nature of and are depends on the nature of and when is even. Whereas, the nature of and are not depends on the nature of and when is odd.
