Introduction
2017 is the anniversary of the 6th Golden Jubilee (300 years) of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity in the form of a developed craft called Freemasonry. The original MCT (1717tok)was initially conceptualized on the 24th of June 2017 as a commemorative item celebrating the 300 years since four London Lodges met to establish the world’s first Grand Lodge for freemasons. Working under the values of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity they started to spread the Idea of Freemasonry.Today there are millions of freemasons' worldwide.

The FM World Today
3 centuries later, the Students of the craft are prepared to accept the fact that at one time or another the evolution of the first two backbone Rites (York and Scottish) has created a spectrum of orders. There have been over one hundred Rites, and at least fifteen hundred Degrees or grades connected directly and indirectly with Freemasonry. Many of these were, of course, quasi-Masonic, their names and origins being now almost unknown, and their history if it was known would be worthless except so far as it might interest the Masonic antiquarian.
If it were possible to list all these known and unknown rites and degrees, they would fill quite a large volume, and after all serve no good purpose as many, indeed most of them, were the outcome of childishness, if not worse. In general, a Rite in Freemasonry Guild is a collection of grades or degrees, with a foundation on the First three, the Entered Apprentice, the Fellow Craft, and the Master Mason.

Why Did We Create the MCT
Historically, Freemasons have been quoted as pioneers and explorers. It would be a shame if we didn’t establish a foundational presence in the blockchain era.
Freemasons have always been game changers, therefore instead of exchanging traditional memorabilia between the members of their own G:.L:. it was decided the creation of a decentralized token away of the common debates.
So what is more controversial than a digital token that is:
•   Property of everyone,
•   Not Regulated by any Rite, Order, Bank or State,    
•   Created from “Ether” the “Fifth Platonic Element”
•   Unbreakable, Indestructible, Inerasable.
•   Decentralized, Futuristic, Transparent.

The Decentralization Need
As any scholar can appreciate, all this inevitable multiplicity has created a complexity of rules and dogmas about acceptable and unacceptable forms of the craft. It is more than expected that there are a lot of incompatibilities to be solved between all these organizations. But on a small personal scale there are individuals that have different perspectives and follow different rites yet they work together, they study together and they thrive together under the values of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.

The 1717tok Initiative
   >The 1717tok Initiative is a self-invented, close end cryptic project. It is a riddle and a solution, a question and an answer, a gift and a duty. It is a Useless String of Data and yet is the Key to Midas Treasures.
        >The 1717tok Initiative honors all the Orders, Rites, GLs and all the respectful members and friends of Freemasonry.
        >MCT as an entity is not ruled or owned by any Rite, Order, Jurisdiction, Council, Chapter or any other affiliated body whatsoever. It is a conceptualized initiative of several individuals around the Globe that exercise freemasonry inspirited by the pioneering aspect of the project.
        >The 1717tok Initiative is not a permanent body or a newborn masonic (or co-masonic) organization seeking recognition of any kind.
   The Ultimate Goal of the 1717tok Initiative is dual:
   B) To reach each and every Brother, Sister, Friend and even a Collector of Unique and Rare Items. Although these tokens are not a financial instrument of any kind the carry a great value based on their rarity. They are the Ultimate Collectible Digital Item of the Blockchain world.
   J) To create a Global Decentralized “Charity Vault” in order to contribute to the relief of all the “Orphans” (a.k.a. the widow’s sons). This Decentralized Vault will be at the disposal of all the supporters of the MCTthat hold 5 tokens or more. This vault will have the value that the DAW will give through time. This is a real Magnus Opus.

For Whom is MCT for?
   >For all these individuals that share the same idea about Liberty, Equality, Fraternity on the one hand and for Decentralization, Futurism, Transparency on the other.
   >For every collector that wants to harness the power of the blockchain uniqueness and the exclusiveness of a once in a century game changing event.
   >For every respectful member of our various Fraternities that want to participate in this revolutionary Initiative.
The value of MCT is 0,33 ETH but in reality it may be much more valuable because it represents the Vision and the Dedication to work towards a better world.
MCT is not only a commemorative jewel or another memorabilia item. It hosts the power of unity, shows the evolving Future and brings value out of Decentralization.

Awards
Although the possession of the token itself carries its own value, a unique collection of Limited Certificates have been created to honor the fast acting and early supporters of the MCT
Every Certificate is exclusively designed for the 1717tok Initiative. All the traditional techniques meet the modern state of the art practices to craft a unique masterpiece of Cryptography, Alchemy, Art and Freemasonry Science:
   >All the Certificates have been designed as a modular synthesis following the Golden Rule (Φ) that represents Harmony and mathematical wisdom.  
   >Rare Alchemic Gravures have been redesigned and merged with Masonic Emblems and Philosophical Riddles to illustrate Masonic Lessons without exposing them.
   >Exclusive custom made parchment paper for the fine print.
   >UV invisible printing, 3D holograms, Embossing and Wax Sealing.
   >Unique Identity Hash on each numbered Certificate.

Awards Categories
   >Bronze Craftsman’s Award: the possession of a pentagram in MCT(5) rewards the owner with the Bronze Limited Certificate
   >Silver Craftsman’s Award: the possession of a tetraktys in MCT(1+2+3+4=10) rewards the owner with the Silver Limited Certificate
   >Gold Craftsman’s Award: the possession of a pentagram's squarein MCT(5X5=25) rewards the owner with the Gold Limited Certificate
   >Platinum Craftsman’s Award: the possession of a triangle of tetraktys in MCT(3×(1+2+3+4)=30) rewards the owner with the SET OF ALL the Limited Certificates

Awards Details
I.   There will be issued a limited number of awards for the token owners. The categories and the total issuance will be:
   >5000 Bronze Craftsman’s Awards
   >3000 Silver Craftsman’s Awards

   >1000 Platinum Craftsman’s Awards

What is MCT ?
As it has been pointed out, 2017 is a special year for all Masons as it honors its roots beginning of this historic meeting. Celebrations range from giving a film crew unique access to the people and traditions behind Freemasonry to a year-long programme packed with events like Car rallies, church services, fund-raisers and family fun days – there is something for everyone. Therefore a blockchain based token is the proper way to celebrate and why not, always invest in the future of Freemasonry anyway.

Although the MCT is not a currency by any means, it has a great value potential based on its rareness. That means it depends A LOT on the support and the Consistency of the bearer to continue to flourish and thrive.
These commemorative tokens represent specific quantities of ETHER and they can never be changed or modified. Unlike many Altcoins available today, they are not subject to manipulation or dilution of available shares by developers or community politics. Furthermore, there will only be 1,618,033 MCT ever produced as they are permanently burned into the Ethereum Blockchain. Additionally there will be a restricted number of tokens that will be in circulation since a small part of the issuance will be locked to the “Charity Vault”

GET YOUR 1717TOK NOW WHILE THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE!

Giveaways
From the 1stday of the Autumn Equinox (22ndof September 2017) daily giveaways will be posted on the MCT site and Social Media pages;allsupporterswill receive free tokens as rewards for given tasks or riddles. Yes, free! Just by solving the daily tasks that will be announced on time.
Act now, subscribe to the newsletter and follow us, because you never know when this opportunity will end. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own these commemorative tokens today while they still last!

Special Note
As part of the commemorative aspect of the MCT release a total of 33,000 tokens will be equally airdropped to each known G:.L:. registered and recognized under a Major Accepted Masonic Body (once they provide their addresses). Without them, none of this would even be possible.

How Do I Acquire MCTTOKENS from the 1717TOK Initiative?
FIRST AND PERMANENT:
   YOU CANNOT BUY ANY MCT with FIAT money.
   The 1717tok Initiative is not a Fund neither a Bank nor a Regalia Shop.
You can only EXCHANGE 0.33 ETH for 1 MCT. That is 3 MCT for each ETH.
The MCT is a cryptographically issued virtual entity that lives in the EVM. It can only be exchanged with ETH and cannot be purchased by the 1717tok Initiative.
In order for any token exchange to be executed there is a need of a valid Ethereum Wallet hosting the required amount of ETH.

Why We Support Ethereum?
There are several qualitative and quantitative reasons that lead us to use Ethereum as the core element.
The main Qualitative reason is the nature of Ethereum itself. Even if the founders of Ethereum may not have had in mind this Philosophical aspect, they used the most appropriate and accurate description of the Prima Materia of the Ethereum Network. The ETHER!

Ether or AETHER is the 5th element and it is represented by the Dodecahedron that is constructed by 12 Pentagons. This is the main symbolism of the MCT.

Among the Quantitative Reasons are the following:
•   You can mine it yourself (provided that you know what you are doing)
•   It is made of ETHER!
•   You can lend it to a friend
•   It is not a national currency
•   It has no borders or restrictions
•   It is secure and anonymous
•   It is decentralized and transparent

What's the Plain Objective Use of the MCT?
There isn't one. You Justown the token(s).
From the very beginning of theMCT initiative it was clear that the token itself would exist only for commemorative reasons. Tokens are produced, distributed and exchanged for ETH. They carry no “currency” value. Still they have a Collectible Value that can be evaluated by the community through time. After the Initiation of the proposed project, things began to surface. One idea gave birth tomany more of thoughts and "threads of threats" on the board. These threads like a horde of barbarians - would move around the project and destroy it if the builders hadn't built proper foundations on security measures.
The problem with that idea was "How do you know if a built block has indeed a strong foundation?" There are two possible solutions:
1.   A computational assessment or
2.   Voting.
As a further outcome of these debates a new idea was born…

The First Decentralized Virtual Almoners Bag & CRYPTO-Charity
The “Charity Vault” is a virtual Almoners Bag in which MCT holders can propose a charity, contribute tokens and vote for any proposed charity ballot. The entire state of the Vault is held in, and all member actions are made through, the decentralized, trusted Ethereum blockchain.

Why Does Decentralization Matter?
Until now, all virtual or real vaults have ultimately been controlled by a single entity or organizations. The 1717tok initiative, on the other hand, is "agreed to" by the consensus of the participants of the Ethereum network and has no central authority. This has several important ramifications:
∞   The 1717tok initiative cannot be stopped. Not by any government, not by its members (token holders), not even by the developing team. The 1717tok initiative will exist as long as Ethereum exists.
∞   Likewise, the 1717tok initiative cannot be censored or altered against the wishes of its members.
∞   Open execution; the 1717tok initiative code is not only open-source, it is open-execution. We know exactly what code is running and what it does. And everybody can view this as well.
∞   One token, many Aspects;the "Universal Mode" feature of the 1717tok initiative is only one of many possible representations of blockchain functions that can be executed. Anyone can find an aspect of their own and we hope they do!

Motivation, Background & Future
The "awesomeness" (for lack of a better term) of the real world is static. By contrast, the "awesome" nature of virtual worlds is steadily increasing, maybe even exponentially. It is believed that, eventually, virtual worlds will become more stable (safer, more efficient, less expensive, etc) than the real world, people will put more trust in them. Many already do..
In fact, one of the possible solutions to the Fermi Paradox is that maybe we already have been engrossed in virtual worlds and no longer pay much attention to the real one.This is a scary prospect for most people.
Obviously,MCT is a very rudimentary first step and it is not designed to become a "dominant virtual social network". It would be a blunt and arrogant claim. On the other hand it is an important milestone in offering an alternative to whatever the central social denominators come up with in the next few years.

Token Distribution
The issued tokens are planned to be released in the following 3 main categories:
a.   Operarios Ultricies 30%
These are the tokens that will be assigned to the operational part of the MCT and will not be in circulation during the crowd exchange.
I.   10% of the total issuance will be distributed to the respectful supporters of the MCT initiative as daily giveaways.
II.   10% of the total issuance will be used for Research & Development, Marketing & Production, Operations & Legal Department, and the Founding Corpus of the MCT initiative.
III.   10% of the total issuance will be assigned to the CHARITY VAULT locked by a smart contract in order to be managed by the DAW (Decentralized Autonomous Workshop)

b.   Ultricies a Patronis40%
These are the tokens that will be distributed during the crowd exchange for public circulation. Each ETH offered by a supporter will be exchanged by 3 MCT. (Minimum MCT request is 1 for 0.33 ETH). Part of the Ultricies a Patronis will be complimentary granted to G:.L:.s around the world.
I.   38% will be available for exchange between the September 22ndand December 22ndfor any one.
II.   2% will be airdropped to the GLs

c.   Futurae Munificentiae 30%
These are the tokens that will be locked for the Future. 30% of the total issuance will be assigned to the Futurum Firmamentum locked by a smart contract in order to be managed by the DAW
