  • Donation FAQs, par katie, 31 March 2017

    Friday 31 March 2017 :: Internet Archive Blogs » Search Results » bitcoin :: RSS
    Why should I donate to the Internet Archive?
    The Internet Archive is a small non-profit library with a huge mission: to give everyone access to all knowledge, forever. For free. Together we are building a special place where you can read, learn and explore. The Internet Archive has only 150 staff but runs the #250 website in the world. Reader privacy is very important to us, so we don’t collect your personal information. We don’t accept ads. But we still need to pay for servers, staff and rent. That’s where you can help us. If you find our site useful, please give what you can today. Thank you.
    Where does my donation go?
    • Technology: We preserve 750 million web pages per week! So far, we’ve saved 30 petabytes (that’s 30,000,000,000,000,000 bytes) of data. That takes a lot of servers, bandwidth and power. The cost of storing information in our own data centers is a fraction of the cost to store it in Amazon Cloud.
    • Projects: This year we are launching a new initiative to create a secure, reader-private copy of our data across the border in Canada. We are working to digitize 4 million books and offer them to libraries and learners for free.
    • Staff: Most top websites like ours employ a huge staff. We employ 150 people around the world—engineers, archivists, librarians and book scanners. Most of our staff could be making much more money at a company driven by profit, but they choose to work for a non-profit powered by a huge mission. Hiring and retaining this kind of talent is imperative to our mission.

    How do I donate to the Internet Archive?
    To donate, please visit our donation page. You can donate using any major credit card (including VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express), PayPal, bank transfer, Bitcoin, stock or by sending a check to the Internet Archive at 300 Funston Ave, San Francisco, CA 94118.
    How do I donate to the Internet Archive Canada?
    The Internet Archive Canada is a Not For Profit Corporation, registered under number 435509-1. The Internet Archive Canada is currently not registered as a public charity. Canadian citizens may deduct their contribution on any income earned in the United States only. To donate, please send checks to:
    Internet Archive Canada
    130 St. George St.
    Suite 7001
    Toronto, ON M5V 3T5
    CANADA
    Can I donate to the Archive on a monthly basis?
    To make a pledge / monthly sustaining gift, please visit our donation page and click ‘monthly sustaining gift’ and indicate how much you would like to contribute.
    How do I update or change my sustaining gift payment information?
    • PayPal – you can monitor and update your payment information via your PayPal account using PayPal’s site.
    • Credit Card – please email donations@archive.org and we will be happy to help update or make changes to your pledge. Or call our Administration Office at 415-561-6767 and we can assist you over the phone.

    How do I donate by Check (via mail)?
    Please make the check payable to “Internet Archive” and send to the below address. Please do not mail cash.
    Internet Archive
    300 Funston Ave.
    San Francisco, CA 94118
    USA
    Our preference is for checks in U.S. dollars, drawn on U.S. bank accounts. Checks in currencies other than U.S. dollars, or from bank accounts outside the U.S., can be very expensive for us to process, which reduces the value of your gift. If you do not have a U.S. bank account, you can maximize the value of your donation by giving via PayPal or wire transfer.
    How do I donate Bitcoin?
    Bitcoin is an experimental, cryptographically secure, semi-anonymous method of transferring value between parties. Introduced in 2008, it has been successfully used as a token system between thousands of people. To donate via Bitcoin, please click here and use the QR code or associated link to donate.
    How do I donate stock?
    To donate stock, please email donations@archive.org and we will send you a return email with instructions.
    How do I make a Wire Transfer?
    To wire funds domestically or internationally, please email donations@archive.org and we will send you a return email with wire transfer information.
    How can I get my company to match my donation?
    Check with your Human Resources department for specific information on whether they have a matching program and how to request a matching donation.
    How can I support you via Amazon Smile?
    When you sign up for Amazon Smile and choose the Internet Archive as your donation beneficiary, Amazon will donate .5% of every purchase you make to the Archive. To sign up and support us, visit: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-3242767
    Are my donations tax-deductible?
    The Internet Archive is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation that is tax-exempt under section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Federal Tax ID Number 94-3242767. Donations are tax deductible on US income only.
    If I make a donation, how do I get my tax receipt?
    All donors who give through our online donation flow will receive a tax receipt via email. Depending on the payment method used, it can take 1 – 7 business days for the receipt to arrive. Donors using an offline method such as sending a check will receive their receipt at the mailing address provided with the donation, unless they provide us with an email address. Please note when using offline methods that we recommend retaining a copy of your bank’s confirmation of the donation for your records as well.
    Why is there a minimum donation for credit cards?
    We receive small donations from people who don’t have much money, and we are really, really grateful to those donors.
    Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for people to use donation mechanisms such as ours to test stolen credit cards to see if they work. Those people typically use a very small amount for their testing: a $5 minimum donation amount seems to deter them.
    If I can’t afford to donate, or don’t want to, what else can I do to support the Internet Archive?
    There are many ways to show your support. Your time is just as important as a monetary contribution. Please utilize the Archive and share your favorite collections with friends and family. You can get an Internet Archive Virtual Library Card, sign up for our newsletter, read our blog, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook. If you would like to volunteer for the Archive, please email info@archive.org for more information.
    Can I give you a targeted or restricted donation to be used for something very specific?
    The Internet Archive prefers unrestricted donations, so we can direct your donation to the area where the funds are most needed. Every restriction imposes administrative overhead and planning costs, and increases internal complexity. We accept restricted gifts on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested in making a restricted gift, please contact donations@archive.org
    What is your refund policy?
    If for any reason you wish to have your donation refunded, please contact us via email at donations@archive.org. We will need the following information in order to process your refund:
    • Date of donation (All refund requests must be made within 90 days of donation)
    • Amount donated
    • Full name
    • Payment method used (credit card, bank transfer, check…)
    • Country of origin
    • Reason for the refund

    Please note that some payment methods may not support refunds, or require refunds to be made through the payment method (card) utilized, so additional information may be required to process your refund. All refunds will be processed as quickly as possible, but processing times may vary depending on the payment method.
    We can only refund Bitcoin donations in Bitcoin. Because we do not store Bitcoins, refunds will be calculated based on the U.S. Dollar amount we received via instant exchange at the time of the donation, using our payment processor’s Bitcoin sell rate when the refund is issued. The Internet Archive is not responsible for any change in value based on fluctuating exchange rates. Read more katie

  • Blockchain Solutions Coming for U.S. Crude Oil Market, par Alex Lielacher, 31 March 2017

    Friday 31 March 2017 :: Bitcoin Magazine :: RSS
    Natixis, Trafigura and IBM Launch Blockchain Solution for U.S. Crude Oil Market
    NatixisTrafigura Trading  and IBM announced that they have partnered up to deliver the first-ever blockchain-based commodity trade finance platform for the U.S. crude oil market. The new platform will allow crude oil transactions to be digitized to ensure more transparency and efficiency as well as improved security in the trade finance process.
    The new platform is built on the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric blockchain and will allow all stakeholders in a crude oil transaction to view and share data on the status of the transaction throughout its entire process.

    By using the new distributed ledger platform, crude oil trade finance industry participants will benefit from improved efficiency through lower overhead costs and few intermediaries, a reduction in cash cycle times, increased transaction transparency to reduce the potential of fraud or tampering with documents, and the ability to audit the entire transaction process through the use of shared processes and record-keeping.
    “We have chosen the Hyperledger Fabric but we have put on top of it our own platform/application with our industry-specific purpose (with IBM and Natixis developers),” Arnaud Stevens, Natixis’s New York Head of Global Energy & Commodities, told Bitcoin Magazine. “This prototype has been built in a robust technology environment providing security, confidentiality, auditability, reliability and scalability. And Natixis continues to test and to work on the different distributed ledger technologies (Corda, Ethereum, in addition to Hyperledger Fabric) with its own projects and with other banks (R3).”
    Up until now, commodity trade finance transactions have relied heavily on paper documentation, which often leads to delays and human errors and opens up the potential of fraud and lost documentation. By digitizing all involved documents, including trade documents, shipment updates and delivery and payment status, and enabling them to be stored in a shared ledger, every trade transaction can be executed in a much more efficient and transparent manner.
    The new distributed ledger platform used by the French bank Natixis and the commodity trading company Trafigura is hosted on IBM’s Bluemix cloud platform, which was delivered by IBM France.
    In the future, the platform will be expanded to enable all stakeholders in a crude oil trade finance transaction to enter data directly onto the distributed ledger, which will provide real-time status updates to all transaction participants to ensure that the transaction is processing smoothly and without the risk of fraud.
    Furthermore, the new trade finance platform has been designed for large-scale adoption by the entire industry via a shared permissioned ledger that all trading partners have access to.
    “Together with Natixis and IBM, we have analyzed the workflow of crude oil transactions in the U.S., detailing the different steps of a transaction, our interactions with the financial institutions and the documents exchanged among the various parties,” said Rodney Malcolm, CFO of Trafigura Trading North America. “The goal is to replace paper-heavy manual processes with blockchain-based workflows to improve transparency and data sharing. With the distributed ledger technology, all transaction participants in the network are updated simultaneously with a record that cannot be altered or tampered with.”

    Furthermore, Malcolm told Bitcoin Magazine that Trafigura was brought into the project as Natixis and IBM were already in the process of developing a blockchain solution for the oil trade and were looking for a leader in the U.S. oil trading business to be a participant in the concept trial.
    Stevens suggested that it may be at least another year before the technology is ready to go into production mode.
    “We had begun to discuss the use of blockchain [technology] with Trafigura’s peers in the U.S. as well as other commodity banks, and we see a clear interest in testing the technology,” he told Bitcoin Magazine. “We would like to get into production mode as soon as possible, but it will not be before 2018. The industry is looking for significant advancements in efficiency, transparency and security. Adoption of blockchain technology could enable faster, permissioned, immutable, transparent and auditable business-to-business interactions between companies and their business partners in the energy and commodity industry.”
    He added, “Blockchain [technology] is a team sport; it’s about operating a business network, and we would like to invite the key players in the commodity trading space in the U.S. to join this initiative to create an industry-specific platform. We recognize that we can’t build everything ourselves and that’s why we are open to collaborating with like-minded partners.”
