Agree. I think the earth-sized bitcoin dripping over the earth is scary Smiley It has a very megalomaniac feel to it.

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.
The world is changing very, very fast.

Question:  Why does Wikileaks need a lot of funding in the first place?

Have you ever successfully defended an online network of public servers, protecting sensitive information that almost every government spook agency and top-tier hacker in the world has on their target list?

I can imagine that it takes some cash, on top of some seriously dedicated volunteer effort, especially when your organization has been partially dismantled by psycho ops campaigns, and parts of your sensitive, critical systems have been sabotaged by insiders and need to be rebuilt.

Imagine trying to stay in communication with each other, in a clandestine way, spread out over the globe, and keeping something like that running.

Maybe they need crypto capability on those iPhones.

This is tremendously good for bitcoin. La raison d'etre!

People from North America and Europe rarely feel the pain of the political banking regime. People and nations are left out of the system, now there is an alternative.

There is a tremendous amount of unstable fiat wealth in South America, Africa, India, China, and the Middle East that will be converted into bitcoin wealth in the not too distant future.

I agree.  Just put small bitcoins in the drops falling through the middle.

Interesting idea. Don't the drop represent the leaks though ... bitcoins leaking out to the world?

Maybe put the bitcoins going into a slot in the top? ... Bitcoins in, public transparency leaks out kind of thing ...

Yes, to build on that I think maybe better to recolor the Bitcoin portion as that valuable "Gold" hue we've got in most of the branding... From where I sit, that automatically implies value when ascribed to a coin-like object, wheras the current blue-on-blue design is ambiguous as best.

I think all of you shoud put your money where you mouth is. Donate a small amount to Wikileaks, even 0.01 btc would help. They could then anonymously trade it for cash with someone and no government will have any way to track it. You can also get a personal adress to donate to if you're very wary about security issues.

I was actually just intending the little one to be near where they ask for bitcoin donations. The big one might be good if there was a whole page devoted to bitcoin or an article or something. By all means redesign and remix. And I still can't find contact info, am I blind?
