On observing one can comment that Bitcoin and WikiLeaks are intertwined. The early fledging  movements suggest that both had their roots in the cypherpunk community. Bitcoin’s funding allowed the organization to continue after MasterCard and Visa refused to process any more transactions for WikiLeaks.

When WikiLeaks posted some confidential military information in March 2010, including a video that showed civilian casualties, and a detailed record of the Afghan War, the payment system Paypal froze WikiLeaks account to fund the operation. Claiming that they do not support illegal activities and false data. Furthermore, the joint effort by MasterCard, Visa, Paypal, Western Union and Bank of America choked off 95% Wikileaks funding. This is when the journalistic organization turned to Bitcoin for donations beings the only available way to raise and store funds 

Julian Assange and WikiLeaks established a payment channel through Bitcoin on June 14, 2011. It was after the asset price boomed and the community of miners and users started growing. It would not be wrong to state that WikiLeaks saved an emerging Bitcoin community from excessive political pressure and heat. Same as it was saved by the  Bitcoin from plunging into financial dissolution. DataCell EHF is the one to credit for this success.

Datacell EHF is a network provider in Iceland with founder Andreas Fink. Amid all the panic, DataCell EHF endeavoured to save Wikileaks by administering its payments even after Iceland Supreme Court’s decision to halt fundings! The old payment processor of Wikileaks has now come up with a big mission to start low cost internet for the West African population.

Wikileaks Julian Assange and Satoshi Nakamoto

Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious creator of Bitcoin, in no doubt, stands prime in the list of initial cryptocurrency believers and promoters. Satoshi was open to developing the Bitcoin protocol and devised the first version of the software. 

Rumours suggest that Nick Szabo can be the mysterious Satoshi as he is the developer of smart contract technology and the Bit Gold algorithm of decentralized virtual currency. He is also a well-known lawyer, cryptologist and a prime individual to promote cryptocurrency in its initial phase. Some rumours and Mcafee also observe Satoshi Nakamoto as Indian.

Furthermore, Bitcoin donated to WikiLeaks at the time of crisis. Julian Assange also commented that he made around 50000% return on Bitcoin as result of the US government imposed financial blockade on WikiLeaks.
