Wikileaks will Expand the List of Cryptocurrencies for Donations

Wikileaks will Expand the List of Cryptocurrencies for Donations
Julian Assange - the founder of Wikileaks - posted on his twitter that his project begin to accept donations in ZCash, which is the third virtual currency accepted by the information sharing site following Bitcoin and Litecoin.

The non-profit organization Freedom of the Press Foundation, whose goal is to protect the free press, notified WikiLeaks that it will cease to mediate through Visa, MasterCard and PayPal payment systems between donors and the organization.

In response, Julian Assange accused the US intelligence services of a purposeful banking blockade and announced WikiLeaks' intentions to add support for a number of other crypto-currencies.

Like our response to the first banking blockade, (Wikileaks) will open up additional crypto-currencies. Those wanting to contribute to Wikileaks can already use Bitcoin, Litecon and the ultra-private Monero and Zcash.
WikiLeaks specializes in a disclosure of information leakage, including private lines of communication and classified documents of governments and corporations. Many believe that the organization works for the benefit of society, shedding light on the inner workings of influential groups that would otherwise be inaccessible to the public. At the same time, the leader of WikiLeaks Julian Assange is often accused of involvement and cooperation with the governments of several countries, including Russia and the United States.

By the way, WikiLeaks founder's Twitter account mysteriously vanished without warning or explanation (it has since reappeared), and then the U.S. Navy sent a cryptic tweet containing only his name. The tweet was subsequently deleted, but you can see a screenshot here .
