I am assuming we're going to see them pushing Bitcoin more, eh?

It's too bad Wikileaks is so controversial among the general public-- this is one of the first best examples of why exactly a peer-to-peer monetary system is so necessary.

As an alternative to existing credit card models, BTC isn't that useful yet. As a way of sidestepping assholes like this... priceless.

Wikileaks is controversial even in the anti-government crowd... Is it a front? Is it legit? Is it just a bunch of FUD?

Yeah, but everything's a front.

It's still a much better rep than it enjoys among the neocons who want to have an Assange necktie party at ground zero.

I thought they outlined their expenses in that parody ad.

Where they happily show that they have to buy 20 iPhones (or similar smartphones), to 'really stay anonymous'.

Really? Then just buy 20 disposable 30$ Alcatel phones or something. They seem to be wasting money too much, like many other charities and 'non-profits'.

How You Can Donate To WikiLeaks
Bitcoin

Bitcoin is a secure and anonymous digital currency. Bitcoins cannot be easily tracked back to you, and are safer and faster alternative to other donation methods. You can send BTC to the following address:

1HB5XMLmzFVj8ALj6mfBsbifRoD4miY36v

Various sites offer a service to exchange other currency to/from Bitcoins. There are also services allowing trades of goods for Bitcoins. Bitcoins are not subject to central regulations and are still gaining value. Read more about Bitcoins on Wikipedia

For maximum security, you can also request a one-time Bitcoin address. To do so, please join our IRC and type /msg Bitcoin new.

Our helpful bot will generate new donation address. Please make sure Bot is active on #bitcoin channel and has @ to the left of his nick.

Yes, that's due to the low heroin street price lately.

Serge,

It wouldn't surprise me if those who want to see Bitcoin fail lashed out at the exchanges. We are kinda the lightenting rods.

Alas, let freedom ring!

Cheers,
Adam

It was only a month ago our so they either stopped or didn't recommend BTC due to the market swings. Now BTC are listed as the first recommended donation option. How quickly things can change.

I kind of like the graphic, but maybe just a tiny bitcoin somewhere on their logo would suffice rather than defacing what people are used to. Bitcoins are great, but I think just a small emblem in the corner would look much cleaner.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.
