Mastercard fined €570M by EU for artificially raising fees -
Mastercard has been caught with their hand in the cookie jar. The company has been fined €570 million ($648.4 million) by the European Union (EU) after it was found to be keeping lower fees inaccessible from merchants for cross-border payments.

The European Commission announced the fine through a press release on January 22. Margrethe Vestager, the Commissioner in charge of competition policy said in the release:

“European consumers use payment cards every day, when they buy food or clothes or make purchases online. By preventing merchants from shopping around for better conditions offered by banks in other Member States, Mastercard’s rules artificially raised the costs of card payments, harming consumers and retailers in the EU.”

The Commission does not divulge how much of the heightened fees brought in for the credit card company, although for a fee of over half a billion euros, it had to be significant. As Mastercard cooperated with the EU, they were given a 10% discount on the fine.

Credit cards are a popular payment option for many online gambling operations, and these heightened fees will have hurt the bottom lines of many operators, who often eat the cost of fees to attract more deposits.

This is another example of why having a middleman involved in payment processing is harmful to not only gambling operations, but to payment systems in general. Mastercard has an army of lawyers paid to ensure they follow regulations and stay within the law, and still tried to apply higher fees to get as much as they could out of the region.

The only solution to this problem, immediately and long term, is to cut the middleman out and start using a direct, low-fee payment system. The only viable option for that is Bitcoin SV (BSV). As a peer-to-peer system, it doesn’t involve a middleman who might meddle with transaction costs. Because the BSV blockchain is built to scale massively on chain, it can meet the needs of the industry for fast transactions, and provide minimal transaction costs, far into the future.

It’s very unlikely that operators or citizens will see any of that €570 million fine Mastercard paid. Whatever additional fees they paid for using credit cards are gone to them. It’s time that legacy options like Mastercard get shown the door as well so they can permanently move onto BSV.

The purpose-free organization
An organization’s main purpose is to give its members a certain social status. Whether employees do productive work or bullshit jobs makes no difference in the life of the organization. Other theories, which state that organizations exist to achieve a specific goal, fail to explain how so many of them can still smoothly obtain resources and pay salaries while being totally dysfunctional (the kind of organizations whose own employees tell you “I don’t understand how it can still run!”).

[MOBILE-2834] "You authentication token is invalid or has expired ..." + access to previous APKs - Moodle Tracker

Juan Leyva added a comment - Yesterday
Hi Nick,

the "Your authentication token is invalid or has expired.." message is quite normal, it may happen when the user needs to re-enter his credentials (for security reasons, via Moodle security settings you can set an expiration time for access tokens via the app).

Apart from that, messages like "Access exceptions" are due to problems in the server side, maybe the site administrators updated incorrectly the Moodle site?

Finally, old versions can be downloading using this link: and changing the version number (350 for 3.5.0 or 351 for 3.5.1)

If you have any further question, please use the support forum: Moodle for mobile

Personally, I think it's amazing to see how many of these concepts were created basically from scratch, out of the pure genius of the person who created them. the limiting factor isn't the machine or the physics, but the imagination of the person doing the creating.

Five insights on Gen Z | WARC
What makes them particularly intriguing is how and where they consume content, both on and offline. They’re notoriously hard for brands to reach.

Gen Z falls between the rather wide age range of 9 and 23. While there are obviously big differences between ages, social groups, communities and more, there are some traits that are commonly found in the teenage and lower 20s group. We’ve worked hard to understand and communicate with this audience over the last few years, building a successful strategy for Fanta that’s delivered engagement and importantly, a significant increase in y-o-y sales. Here’s some of the key lessons we’ve learned along the way.
