Satoshi Nakamoto inspired us to create Shakti Coin. In his work, we saw the potential for blockchain to change the way money works. We saw the potential for more financial inclusion and social good. Yet a decade after his historic white paper, we feel that no coin has yet managed to deliver on the promise that blockchain holds for the world. Our white paper explains how Shakti Coin changes that.
On August 30, 2018, we filed a no-action letter with the United States. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). By doing so we are requesting that the SEC review Shakti Coin and confirm its compliance with Federal Law. Although not required, we see this voluntary submission as a symbol of our desire for transparency and legal compliance in every market Shakti serves. You can view the letter here.

The Proof of Effort (PoE) mechanism is part of the "Software" as defined in 1(c). The PoE mechanism is open source software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation version GBL-3.0-or-later.
The PoE is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License at <https://www.gnu.org/licenses/> for more details.
All License Fees and Support Fees are payable in advance in the manner set forth in the Order Form and are non-refundable, except as may be expressly set forth herein.

Taxes. All Fees and other amounts payable by Licensee under this Agreement are exclusive of taxes and similar assessments. Licensee is responsible for all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, or local governmental or other regulatory authority on any amounts due or owing by Licensee hereunder, other than any taxes imposed on Licensor's income.
Term and Termination.
Licensee may terminate this Agreement by requesting a refund, as set forth in Section 12(a), within the first one hundred and twenty (120) days after the purchase of the license.
Licensor may terminate this Agreement, effective upon written notice to Licensee, if Licensee breaches this Agreement and such breach: (i) is incapable of cure; or (ii) being capable of cure, remains uncured for thirty (30) days after Licensor provides written notice thereof.
Upon early termination of this Agreement, the license granted hereunder shall also terminate, and Licensee shall cease using the Software and Documentation. No expiration or termination shall affect Licensee’s obligation to pay all Fees that may have become due before such termination, or entitle Licensee to any refund, in each case except as set forth in Section 12(c)(ii).
Limited Warranties and Warranty Disclaimer.
Licensor warrants that at the time of delivery, to the best of its knowledge, the Software does not contain any virus or other malicious code that would cause the Software to become inoperable or incapable of being used in accordance with the Documentation. Solely with respect to Software for which Licensor receives a License Fee, Licensor warrants that, for a period of one hundred and twenty (120) days following the purchase date set forth on the Order Form, Licensor will refund the fees paid as described in 12(c)(ii). Any return of fees does not waive the Data Processing Agreement in Annex 2. THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES DO NOT APPLY, AND LICENSOR STRICTLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WITH RESPECT TO ANY THIRD-PARTY PRODUCTS.
The warranties set forth in Section 12(a) do not apply and become null and void if Licensee breaches any material provision of this Agreement, or if Licensee or any Authorized User, whether or not in violation of this Agreement: (i) modifies or creates derivatives of the Software; or (ii) misuses the Software, including any use of the Software other than as specified in the Documentation or expressly authorized by Licensor in writing.
If, during the period specified in Section 12(a), any Software fails to comply with the warranty in Section 12(a), and such failure is not excluded from warranty pursuant to Section 12(b), Licensor shall, subject to Licensee's promptly notifying Licensor in writing of such failure, at its sole option, either: (i) repair or replace the Software, provided that Licensee provides Licensor with all information Licensor reasonably requests to resolve the reported failure, including sufficient information to enable the Licensor to recreate such failure; or (ii) refund the Fees paid for such Software, subject to Licensee's ceasing all use of the Software. If Licensor repairs or replaces the Software, the warranty will continue to run from the Effective Date and not from Licensee's receipt of the repair or replacement. The remedies set forth in this Section 12(c) are Licensee's sole remedies and Licensor's sole liability under the limited warranty set forth in Section 12(a).
EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 12(a), THE SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND LICENSOR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE. LICENSOR SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ALL WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SET FORTH IN SECTION 12(a), LICENSOR MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND THAT THE SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTATION, OR ANY PRODUCTS OR RESULTS OF THE USE THEREOF, WILL MEET LICENSEE'S OR ANY OTHER PERSON'S REQUIREMENTS, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY SOFTWARE, SYSTEM OR OTHER SERVICES, OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, FREE OF HARMFUL CODE, OR ERROR FREE.
Indemnification by Licensor. Licensee shall promptly notify Licensor in writing of any law suit, claim or other similar action, whether actual or threatened, for the use of the Software or Documentation and shall cooperate with Licensee in defending against any such law suit, claim or similar action. Licensor shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend Licensee and Authorized Users, at Licensor's expense, from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, costs, expenses, liabilities, judgments, causes of action, proceedings, suits, losses and damages of any nature, which are threatened or brought against (or are suffered or incurred by) Licensee or any such person by any third-party based upon infringement of a copyright, trade secret or similar proprietary right (each a “Infringement Claim”) arising out of Licensee’s use of the Software; provided, however that Licensor shall have no obligation to Licensee under this Section with respect to any Infringement Claim based solely upon Licensee's own content or modifications to the Software or Documentation. In the event an Infringement Claim is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to constitute an infringement and Licensee's use of the Software and/or Documentation (including without limitation its continued development activities or sale/licensing activities) is enjoined, Licensor shall, at its sole option, do one of the following: (i) procure for Licensee the right to continue use of the Software and Documentation (including without limitation its continued development activities or sale/licensing activities); or (ii) provide modifications to the affected Software so that its use (including continued development activities and sale/licensing activities) becomes non-infringing, or (iii) terminate the license. In no event will Licensor’s aggregate liability arising out of or related to this agreement exceed the total amounts from Licensee to Licensor under this agreement in the one (1) year period preceding the event giving rise to the claim.
Indemnification by Licensee. Licensee shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend Licensor and its members, managers, officers, directors, agents, employees, and affiliates, at Licensee’s expense from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, costs, expenses, liabilities, judgments, causes of action, proceedings, suits, losses and damages of any nature, which are threatened or brought against (or are suffered or incurred by) Licensor or any such person by any third-party based upon an Infringement Claim arising out of Licensee's content or modifications to the Software and/or Documentation.
IN NO EVENT WILL LICENSOR BE LIABLE UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE, FOR ANY: (a) CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, ENHANCED, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; (b) INCREASED COSTS, DIMINUTION IN VALUE OR LOST BUSINESS, PRODUCTION, REVENUES, OR PROFITS; (c) LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION; (d) USE, INABILITY TO USE, LOSS, INTERRUPTION, DELAY OR RECOVERY OF ANY DATA, OR BREACH OF DATA OR SYSTEM SECURITY; OR (e) COST OF REPLACEMENT GOODS OR SERVICES, IN EACH CASE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER LICENSOR WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES OR SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES WERE OTHERWISE FORESEEABLE. IN NO EVENT WILL LICENSOR'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, AND OTHERWISE EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS FROM LICEENSEE TO LICENSOR UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IN THE ONE (1) YEAR PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
LICENSOR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE LOSS OF GOODWILL, DAMAGES FOR LOST BUSINESS, PROFITS, OR DATA RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, THE DOCUMENTATION, THE TOOLS, OR THE SERVICES, OR FROM ANY MISTAKES, OMISSIONS, INTERRUPTIONS, DELETION OF FILES OR COMMUNICATIONS, ERRORS, DEFECTS, VIRUSES, DELAYS IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE, THEFT, DESTRUCTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS INCURRED BY LICENSEE, OR ANY THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF THE CLAIM (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), EVEN IF FORESEEABLE OR LICENSOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. LICENSOR’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF THE CLAIM (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), SHALL NOT EXCEED THE FEES PAID OR PAYABLE BY LICENSEE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
The Software and Documentation may be subject to US export control laws, including the US Export Administration Act and its associated regulations. The Licensee shall not, directly or indirectly, export, re-export, or release the Software or Documentation to, or make the Software or Documentation accessible from, any jurisdiction or country to which export, re-export, or release is prohibited by law, rule, or regulation. The Licensee shall comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations, and rules, and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval), prior to exporting, re-exporting, releasing, or otherwise making the Software or Documentation available outside the US. Any export, re-export, or release of the Software or Documentation that is prohibited by law, rule, or regulation, shall be a basis for the Licensor to terminate this agreement immediately.
US Government Rights.
The Software is commercial computer software, as such term is defined in 48 C.F.R. §2.101. Accordingly, if the Licensee is the US Government or any contractor therefor, Licensee shall receive only those rights with respect to the Software and Documentation as are granted to all other end users under license, in accordance with (a) 48 C.F.R. §227.7201 through 48 C.F.R. §227.7204, with respect to the Department of Defense and their contractors, or (b) 48 C.F.R. §12.212, with respect to all other US Government licensees and their contractors.

Licensee expressly agrees that it shall not use Confidential Information in the development of any products or services for its own account or for the account of a third party unless expressly agreed to by Licensor in writing. Further, Licensee agrees not to use the Confidential Information for purposes other than that necessary to execute its obligations under this Agreement. Licensee shall protect the Confidential Information by using the same degree of care as the Licensee uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but no less than reasonable care, to prevent the unauthorized use, dissemination or publication of the Confidential Information. Licensee shall limit its internal disclosure of the Confidential Information only to those employees and agents who have a need to know the information for the limited purpose of executing Licensee’s obligations under this Agreement.
Such “Confidential Information” shall include, but is not limited to, identities of other Third Party SXE Network participants information acquired from employees; trade secrets; strategic plans; invention plans and disclosures; customer information; banking and financial information; suppliers; software; distribution channels; marketing studies; intellectual property; information relating to process and products, designs, business plans, business opportunities, marketing plans, business contacts, finances, research, development, know-how or personnel; confidential information originally received from third parties; information relating to any type of technology, and all other material. In addition, the existence and terms of this Agreement shall also be treated as Confidential Information.
All matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Wyoming without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule. Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby shall be instituted in the federal courts of the United States of America or the courts of the State of Wyoming in each case located in the City of Cheyenne and County of Laramie, and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such legal suit, action, or proceeding. Service of process, summons, notice, or other document by mail to such party’s address set forth herein shall be effective service of process for any suit, action, or other proceeding brought in any such court.
Licensor will not be responsible or liable to Licensee, or deemed in default or breach hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder where such failure or delay is due to an event of force majeure which shall include strikes, labor disputes, civil disturbances, riot, rebellion, invasion, epidemic, hostilities, war, terrorist attack, embargo, natural disaster, acts of God, flood, fire, sabotage, fluctuations or non-availability of electrical power, heat, light, air conditioning, or Licensee equipment, loss and destruction of property, change of law or regulations, or any other circumstances or causes beyond Licensor’s reasonable control.
All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers, and other communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given: (i) when delivered by hand (with written confirmation of receipt); (ii) when received by the addressee if sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier (receipt requested); (iii) on the date sent by facsimile or email (with confirmation of transmission) if sent during normal business hours of the recipient, and on the next business day if sent after normal business hours of the recipient; or (iv) on the third (3rd) day after the date mailed, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid. Such communications must be sent to the respective parties at the addresses set forth on the Order Form (or to such other address as may be designated by a party from time to time in accordance with this Section 18(c)).
This Agreement, together with the Order Form and all annexes and exhibits attached hereto, and all other documents that are incorporated by reference herein, constitutes the sole and entire agreement between Licensee and Licensor with respect to the subject matter contained herein, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter.
Licensee shall not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer any of its obligations or performance, under this Agreement, in each case whether voluntarily, involuntarily, by operation of law, or otherwise, without Licensor’s prior written consent, which consent Licensor may give or withhold in its sole discretion. No delegation or other transfer will relieve Licensee of any of its obligations or performance under this Agreement. Any purported assignment, delegation, or transfer in violation of this Section 18(e) is void. Licensor may freely assign or otherwise transfer all or any of its rights, or delegate or otherwise transfer all or any of its obligations or performance, under this Agreement without Licensee’s consent. This Agreement is binding upon and inures to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns.
This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer on any other Person any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement.
This Agreement may only be amended, modified, or supplemented by an agreement in writing signed by each party hereto. No waiver by any party of any of the provisions hereof shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.
For purposes of this Agreement, (a) the words “include,” “includes,” and “including” shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation”; (b) the word “or” is not exclusive; and (c) the words “herein,” “hereof,” “hereby,” “hereto,” and “hereunder” refer to this Agreement as a whole.

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND HOW LONG DO WE KEEP IT?
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any web-based payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.
Regarding personal information we have processed as part of providing the Services to you, we will retain relevant personal information for at least six years from the date of our last interaction with you and in compliance with our obligations under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (or similar legislation around the world) or for longer where we are required to do so according to our regulatory obligations or professional indemnity obligations.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
The purpose of the Swiss Data Protection Act is to protect the privacy, interests and fundamental rights of data subjects. Furthermore, it has as its central goal the maintenance of good data file practice and the facilitation of international data exchange by providing a comparable level of protection. The SDPA is very wide in its scope and applies to personal data file activities carried out by Federal authorities, private organizations and individual private persons (excluding those for normal private purposes).
The SDPA regulates the cross-border transfer of data in cases requiring protection of privacy. Transfers may be prohibited if, for example, the recipient's country cannot provide an adequate level of data protection. Both private individuals and federal bodies that may be involved in cross-border data disclosure are subject to the duty of due care. The transfer of data files abroad has to be notified in the event of a lack of adequate protection. In the absence of such protection, data may only be disclosed abroad if other safeguards, in particular contractual clauses or rules for the same legal person are in place to guarantee protection. The FDPIC must be informed of such clauses and rules. Furthermore, the consent of the person concerned, the impending conclusion or performance of a contract to which the person concerned is party, or the protection of the data subject or any overriding public interests can justify the disclosure of personal data abroad (cf. Art. 6 DPA).
Following an Opinion of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (2006) regarding the responsibility of financial service providers, Swiss-based providers have to carry out specific due diligence when processing personal data. “When a payment transaction is effected via a financial institution, the payer and the payee must be known. If a financial service provider in Switzerland participates in a payment transaction, it may be assumed that this will involve the processing of personal data within the meaning of the Swiss Data Protection Act (Article 3, letters a and e of the DPA). Thus, the financial service provider is subject to the same duties the Data Protection Act applies to private individuals“ (DPA and the Ordinance relating to the Data Protection Act –VDSG).
Swiss Shakti Foundation takes reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information. Such safeguards include the use of firewalls and data encryption, enforcing physical access controls to our buildings and files, and limiting access to personal information only to those employees, agents or third parties who need access to that information to process it for us. We contractually require all third-party service providers to maintain appropriate security measures to protect your personal information.
However, you are also responsible for keeping your personal information confidential and secure. Swiss Shakti Foundation cannot guarantee that your personal information will be 100% safe while using its Services. You should choose a password that is complex (e.g., special characters and numbers, sufficient length, etc.) and keep your password confidential. Do not leave your device unlocked so that other individuals may access your device or Shakticoin.com account. Swiss Shakti Foundation is not in control of your wireless connection or the devices you use to log into the Shakticoin.com Services, so you should make sure you trust the devices and connections you use to access the Services.
If you believe that you have experienced unauthorized access or use of your Shakticoin.com account, please contact us immediately at @shakticoin.com.

A limited number of mining slots have been allocated per location globally.
This is to ensure that global mining of Shakti Coin is not monopolized by any one region, organization or individual. Don't worry there will be enough to go around ;)
Our goal is to avoid an ICO and fund the launch of Shakti Coin within our own community of miners.
Mining Shakti Coin is cooperative and inclusive. Individuals can verify Proof of Effort as well as other transactions and receive mining payments using a personal computer. For those with greater computing power, we offer a range of mining options.
The Shakti Network Software is today capable of processing 10,000 transactions per second and we expect to grow that by a factor of ten as the network expands. Each of these transactions will need to be verified by a Shakti Coin Miner who will receive a payment for the verification. Only registered Shakti Coin Miners will be able to validate Shakti transactions and collect mining fees.
Mining is open to anyone with a reasonably up-to-date personal computer (PC or Mac) and internet access (see mining terms and conditions for exact technical requirements). Options are also available for more technically advanced miners. However, the number of slots will be limited by region. Pre-Registering as a Shakti Coin Miner now will ensure your mining rights once Shakti Coin launches.
The fee required to register as a miner is offset by a bounty equal to many times the registration fee. All mining fees collected will be used to launch Shakti Coin. The more we raise the faster that will happen.
