WikiLeaks Shop starts accepting Bitcoin Cash—price jumps

You can now support the world’s “first intelligence agency of the people” using your BCH.

In an October 31 tweet, the official account for the WikiLeaks Shop announced that they are adding Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to their list of accepted payment methods, along with a few other cryptocurrencies. You can now support their cause by shopping on their website or making a donation using BCH, through payment gateway CoinPayments.

WikiLeaks Shop was created by the multi-award winning non-profit organization WikiLeaks, which solidified its reputation by fearlessly leaking controversial documents connected to war, spying, and corruption—including a set of hacking tools developed by the CIA.

WikiLeaks’ whistleblowing has caused it to amass both criticism and legal trouble. In a New Yorker article, Raffi Khatchadourian interviewed Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who “has interfered with the world’s most powerful institutions.” His exposés have landed him in a particularly difficult situation as he has been seeking refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for five years now—he can and probably will be seized by authorities the minute he sets one foot out those chambers. And while he remains under the embassy’s protection for now, changes in the Ecuadorian government could still threaten his sanctuary.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BSV is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.
