This needs to happen ASAP. Could help the guy a lot and also showcase another legitimate use of BTC in the fight against (government) terror.

It's all bullshit. But bullshit makes the flowers grow and that's beautiful.

We need someone who is trusted to escrow. Then the coins can be donated to one of the organizations which has pledged to help him. (e.g. whistleblower.org) Ideally the org should be non-partisan.

I just emailed (non-anonymously) one of their officers who manages a legal defense fund for another whistleblower:

Greetings Michael,

I am looking for a way to support Edward Snowden, and I wonder if your organization has contacts with him or Glenn Greenwald and could arrange a legal defense or personal support fund similar to what your organization provides for John Kiriakou.

Specifically, I wonder if you could consider acting as a trustee or escrow agent of a bitcoin address for Mr. Snowden. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer currency/digital commodity based on open-source cryptography, and I know that many people in the bitcoin community are sympathetic to Mr. Snowden's stated goals. The exchange value of bitcoins has grown meteorically over the last 2 years, and I can only guess that many in the community would welcome the opportunity to support Mr. Snowden with their new-found wealth. Because bitcoins are based on a peer-to-peer protocol, they are easily moved across national boundaries, an attribute which Mr. Snowden may find advantageous.

Please feel free to contact me if I can provide you with more information about bitcoins or if you would like to discuss technical concerns. I would be delighted if I can help your work in any way.

Regards,
....

I will keep this thread updated if anything comes of this.

Nice work! I'll be watching this thread. This could help get additional press for bitcoin and help one of our nation's heroes. Doubleplusgood.

Following this thread to find out how I can help. Was there ever a more perfect opportunity for symbiosis than BTC and Edward Snowden? Smiley

And good job pbtc!

Huge PR concerning this man, involving BTC in there somewhere would be massive.

The EFF replied as follows:

> Some of us in the bitcoin community are looking to donate to a Snowden
> legal defense fund. Can the EFF recommend one?

I'm unaware of any specific legal defense funds, and generally EFF does not recommend specific legal defense funds for donations for individuals.

Would EFF be willing to set up a bitcoin address to hold donations for a Snowden defense fund?

EFF is unable to set up such a defense fund or a bitcoin address. We have only just begun to start collecting bitcoin and still need to make sure that all of our donations and relevant processes are working.
