Headline June 23, 2015/ "' FUELLING [MASTERY BY MYSTERY] : BITCOIN "'



UNDERSTANDABLY - all the admirers, fans and users of Tor & Bitcoin  are upset? Tough!

Both technologies are great and  unique human endeavour and accomplishments. And both technologies are the real future of the Internet. 

!WOW!  cares that the world at large has been irresponsible in the real application of these two great artistic tools of progress, democracy and freedom.
TODAY  -this very day,  according to the calculations of  !WOW!  -the Bitcoin is worth $211+

How to get them?  You can purchase bitcoins from people who have them.or use   'online  currency  exchanges'   that accept dollars via wire transfer.

Students Mariam, Rabo, Malala  [Nobel Prize], Shazaib Khan Yusufzai, Mustafa, Eman, Dee, Bilal Malik, Reza, Nina Hussain, Salar Khan Yusufzai, Umer Khan, Ali Aizaz, Sarah, Ehsan, Faizan, Hamza, Sannan, Anique, Armeen, Zaeem, Hazeem, Danyial, Rahym, Haleema, Haanyia, Paras, Sorat, Reza, Saima are but, rich students.

They could easily save and  buy one bitcoin and present it to the -World Students Society's : ''Sam Museum of History,''    -for Aqsa and Haider, to safekeep for the future generation of students.    

Bitcoins debuted in early  2009  Central Banks don't regulate it, and its vale can swing widely. Still, transactions are highly secure and cheaper than those made with or credit cards, which all carry fees.

Who accepts them? Most Merchants don't accept bitcoin. But some have recently started to, and its picking fast. Bitcoin was and is accepted  by Deep Web Markets like, Silk Road, Dating site OKCupid, Social News Site like Reddit and some ETSY sellers small merchants.

In September 2012   "35,000"   bitcoin transactions/per day took place.

In September 2013   "55,000"  bitcoin transactions/per day took  place.   

EVEN LEAVING ASIDE specialised tools like Tor, there are plenty of mainstream technologies that criminals can use to hide their activities:

Satellite phones, PIN messaging on BlackBerrys and even Apple iMessage, the instant-messaging service on iPhones and iPads.

"The DEA got burnt in April, that year, when it came out that we weren't able to capture iMessage on a wiretap," say Diana Summers Dolliver, a professor at the Univeristy of Albama's department of criminal justice who previously worked at the Drug Enforcement Administration. 

"So of course all the  bad guys  went out and got  iPhones and encrypted iMessage." 

The FBI isn't trying to listen in on everything the way the  NSA allegedly does; its just looking to obtain legal search warrant under  CALEA . But even that isn't as simple as it sounds. 

"First of all, even if you have an idea that they are using their computer to ill ends- You can't seize the computer for evidence," Dolliver says.

"You have to have a probable cause. So that's roadblock No : 1. Then once you get hold of their computer, it takes a lot of forensic work to figure out who the perps are."

There so many companies that have built their businesses specifically on providing their users with privacy and anonymity. Interest groups like the Center for Democracy and Technology argue that making new technologies  CALEA  compliant stifles Innovation and that building in back doors for law enforcement can make otherwise secure systems vulnerable to hackers.

For years the  FBI  has been working with other agencies on a proposal to update  CALEA, which they finally submitted to the  White House in April that year. The FBI won't comment on details, but generally speaking, the idea is not to force companies to divulge information-

Potentially compromising them technologically, but to increase fines on those that choose not to comply. If the arguements are reasonable, the timing is terrible.

The Edward Snowden leaks began on June 5 that year, and, almost at once, the idea of making electronic surveillance by the government easier became politically radioactive.

In 2013, the FBI established   -jointly with DEA,  the ATF and the U.S. Marshals Service   -the National Domestic Communications Center [NDCAC] in Quantico, Va. 

The Center exists because  -to quote from the appropriations bill that funds it   -"change in the volume and complexity of today's communications services and technologies present new and emerging challenges- To law enforcement's ability to access, intercept, collect, and process wire or electronic communications to which they are lawfully authorized." 

In essence, the NDCAC is a tech startup with at least $54 million in funding- For the 2013 fiscal year that's focused on helping law enforcement penetrate areas of the  Web  that are currently unsearchable.

The FBI isn't the only agency that's worried about the Deep Web. The Senate Finance Committee is looking at beefing up the  IRS  funding for dealing with virtual currencies and investigating potential tax shelters.

Senate sources say, Bitcoin presents Washington with a whole set of regulatory challenges all on its own.

Is Bitcoin a currency?  [Under certain definitions,........NO.........because it isn't legal tender issued by a country.]

Is it a commodity? Should bitcoin traders be regulated as banks or wire services? 

The Honour and Serving of the Deep Web ''Operational Research''  continues. Thank you for reading, and sharing and maybe, learning something.

With respectful dedication to all the '' Law Enforcement Agencies '' of the world. See Ya all Sires, on !WOW!   -the World Students Society Computers-Internet-Wireless:
