Sometimes you have a comeback so good you have to wait until the perfect time to use it. Apparently, for Julian Assange, that time was when Bitcoin hit $5,746.51. The Wikileaks founder posted his comment on Twitter, after a stunning week of price jumps in the cryptocurrency’s value.  The tweet was accompanied by a chart of the value of Bitcoin.

The tweet said: My deepest thanks to the US government, Senator McCain and Senator Lieberman for pushing Visa, MasterCard, Payal, AmEx, Mooneybookers, et al, into erecting an illegal banking blockade against @WikiLeaks starting in 2010. It caused us to invest in Bitcoin -- with > 50000% return.

Can you just imagine that? A big wow...getting 50,000% ROI for their investment in Bitcoin. Julian and his Wikileaks organizations was forced to get an alternative platform for the transfer of their funds when all other traditional means were blocked by the government.

Since Bitcoin is beyond the control of the government, it became the easy option for them. And this situation is actually one of the many reasons why many government is really apprehensive of Bitcoin since it is definitely beyond their control though they can try to regulate (regulate should not be synonymous to control).

What a luck! this goes to show that sometimes difficulties and challenges will in the end be of big benefits to us...we just have to endure the present.
