With the recent seizing of Millions of dollars from the freedom convoy the protestors who wish to support noble causes that challenge central power structures are finding crypto-currencies as a workaround to accomplish their goals. NMI did a piece on how crypto currency is a viable alternative to organizations like Go Fund me. Proving this point to the tune of $38 Million is the “AssangeDAO”. Cointelegraph reports: “A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) set up to support the liberation of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from prison has raised 12,569 Ether (ETH) or around $38.8 million at current prices.
Assange is currently fighting extradition to the United States following a court ruling in December that overruled a British court ruling barring extradition. He is currently locked up in a London prison where he has been since 2019.”
