3.Bonus Options

Everyone who buys MineCoin between September 1, 2016, and October 6, 2016, are eligible for a bonus of max 33% (1.17% daily from the date of buying till October 6, 2016 ).

For example: If you buy 1000 MNC on October 6, 2016, at 0.89% as a daily bonus, then the total MNC balance in your possession by the end of the day will by 1008.9 MNC, 1017.8 MNC on the second and so on. The bonus is added to the sum of replenishment and not on the balance. That is, if you buy additional 500 MNC at 0.89% (daily) then the network will calculate bonus for the total 1500 MNC from the date of purchase (13.35 MNC per day, until November 3, 2016).

Also important to understand that minecoin price will be rising every 4-week period.

08.09–05.10 1 BTC = 1000 MNC

Shadow Regulation: the Back-Room Threat to Digital Rights

EFF's Deeplinks -

When a new law threatens to stifle online speech, to limit our use of the Internet, or allow others to control our digital devices, we can push back in a variety of ways—participating in formal consultations, calling or petitioning our representatives, exposing the proposal through the media, and bringing a legal challenge if the law passes, and so on. When individual companies threaten our rights, we also have options, ranging from boycotting that company, to "shaming" it into changing its practices, or if nothing else works, bringing a lawsuit or invoking regulatory action.

But what do we do when the same threats aren't the result of a law or the practices of an individual company, but the result of a private industry agreement? For example, agreements between copyright holders and Internet companies that give copyright holders the ability to effectively delete users' content from the Internet, and agreements on other topics such as hateful speech and terrorism that can be used to stifle lawful speech. Unlike laws, such agreements (sometimes also called codes, standard, principles, or guidelines) aren't developed with public input or accountability. As a result, users who are affected by them are often completely unaware that they even exist.

Even those who are aware of these agreements have few options for changing them, because users aren't a party to these private deals. They tend to cover multiple companies, so shaming or boycotting a single company isn't an option. And asking regulators to step in might not be possible either, because these agreements often have the active support of government officials who see them as a cheap and easy alternative to regulation.

We are calling these invisible and unaccountable arrangements Shadow Regulation. Here are a few representative examples:

  • The Copyright Alert System or "six strikes" program between U.S. Internet providers and the content industry, which provides for monitoring of your Internet usage and the delivery of warning notices about copyright infringement.
  • The European Commission's hate speech code of conduct, under which major U.S. Internet companies agreed to an expedited process for the removal of supposed hate speech and terrorist activity online.
  • The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) Trusted Notifier Program, which requires Internet domain name registries Radix and Donuts to disable the domains of websites that are accused of hosting infringing content.
  • The RogueBlock guidelines for payment providers, and Trustworthy Ads Guidelines for advertising networks, which block websites accused of hosting infringing content from accessing payment processing and advertising services.

It's time to bring these agreements, or Shadow Regulations, into the bright light of public scrutiny.

Today we're unveiling a new, revamped version of our interactive Free Speech Weak Links infographic, that maps some key instances of Shadow Regulation that exist at various levels of the Internet ecosystem where content and user behavior can be effectively blocked and controlled. At the same time, we're launching a series of blog posts that will delve deeper into particular agreements. As new Shadow Regulation threats emerge (such as a recent European proposal requiring Web platforms to do deals with media companies), we'll also be offering you the opportunity to speak out against them.

Shadow Regulation may be a new term, but it's a phenomenon that has been gathering speed for several years. To defend our Internet, we need to pay attention to the encroachment of these secretive, exclusive agreements, and challenge them when they pose a threat to our digital rights and democracy. Keep reading Deeplinks this week as we explore Shadow Regulation in more detail, and explain how industry-wide agreements, where they have to exist at all, could be done in a more inclusive, balanced, and accountable fashion.

Five Lawmakers Are Challenging Gag Orders on FBI National Security Letters

The Intercept -

The Department of Justice’s policies surrounding lengthy gag orders on secret FBI requests for records are unconstitutional, wrote five members of Congress in a legal brief filed Thursday.

When companies or individuals receive these requests, known as national security letters, they are not typically allowed to share any of the content—or even say that they received such a request—except with an attorney. The FBI does not need to consult a judge to file those requests.

“The FBI’s [national security letter] authority is bound by the law and constitutional limits,” reads the brief, which was signed by U.S Representatives Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), James Sensenbrenner (R-Wisc.), John Conyers (D-Mich.), Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), and Ted Poe (R-Texas).“It is [our] view that the rules currently in place for reviewing NSL nondisclosure orders do not meet the requirements of the USA FREEDOM Act and are unconstitutional.”

The Department of Justice’s protracted review procedures for freeing targets of the gag orders violate the First Amendment, they argued in the brief, which was filed in support of a years-long case being waged by the Electronic Frontier Foundation on behalf of an unnamed client.

According to numbers released by the FBI to Congress, the FBI issued nearly 50,000 national security letters between 2013 and 2015—the vast majority of which still have gag orders.

Very few national security letters have ever been disclosed to the public. Rare cases include three such letters published by Yahoo and another disclosed by the host of a small Internet Service Provider, Nicholas Merrill, who fought for that right in court for more than ten years.

Though the White House typically has jurisdiction over matters of national security, the lawmakers argued this was a special case where congressional interpretation of the law is vital, and they believe the Department of Justice’s failure to remove gag orders attached to these letters after extensive periods of time is not in line with the law.

The FBI and the Department of Justice have been criticized in the past for failing to lift gag orders attached to those secret requests, even after investigations have concluded. According to the USA Freedom Act passed in 2015, non-disclosure obligations are meant to be limited in time.

Four States Sue To Stop Internet Transition

Slashdot -

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Hill: Republican attorneys general in four states are filing a lawsuit to block the transfer of internet domain systems oversight from the U.S. to an international governing body. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt and Nevada Attorney General Paul Laxalt filed a lawsuit on Wednesday night to stop the White House's proposed transition of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions. The state officials cite constitutional concerns in their suit against the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, U.S. government and the Department of Commerce. "The Obama Administration's decision violates the Property Clause of the U.S. Constitution by giving away government property without congressional authorization, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by chilling speech, and the Administrative Procedure Act by acting beyond statutory authority," a statement released by Paxton's office reads. The attorneys generals claim that the U.S. government is ceding government property, pointing to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) review that "concluded that the transition does not involve a transfer of U.S. government property requiring Congressional approval." Paxton also echoed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's warnings that the transition could harm free speech on the internet by giving Russia, China and Iran a voice on the international governing body that would oversee internet domain systems. "Trusting authoritarian regimes to ensure the continued freedom of the internet is lunacy," Paxton said. "The president does not have the authority to simply give away America's pioneering role in ensuring that the internet remains a place where free expression can flourish."

Real business innovation begins with open practices

LXer -

To business leaders, "open source" often sounds too altruistic—and altruism is in short supply on the average balance sheet. But using and contributing to open source makes hard-nosed business sense, particularly as a way of increasing innovation.read more
