The social network on the blockchain Steemit has banned an account of a hacker group intending to make public documents with allegedly secret information about the events of September 11th. Reported by The Block.

The reason for the blocking was a violation of the terms of the user agreement. As the Motherboard notes, representatives of The Dark Overlord claim that they stole the relevant documents from various insurance and law firms, including Hiscox Syndicates, Lloyds of London and Silverstein Properties.

The source also reports that, based on the Steem technology, there are several other implementations of social networks, such as Busy.org and SteemPeak. The corresponding post and The Dark Overlord account in these social networks are still present.

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in an interview with the Netherlands site Paypers listed signs of a fraudulent initial coin offering (ICO) scheme.

They include inaccurate information about the professional experience of project managers, overly aggressive marketing of the ICO, and unrealistic promises of future token profitability.

In order not to become a scam project investor, the FBI advises checking that the ICO has a registration and which laws apply to the sale of tokens in the licensing jurisdiction. To check the status of registration of organizations, you can use the BrokerCheck system of the Financial Institutions Regulatory Agency (FINRA).

In addition, the FBI said that late registration of cryptocurrency exchanges and cryptomattes is also considered a violation of US federal laws.
