Wikileaks is a non-profit international organization that publishes news leaks and classified media obtained from anonymous sources. Julian Paul Assange, an Australian activist, publisher, and editor, founded it in 2006. He was arrested in London in 2019 after being charged in the US with conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer network in 2010.

Since Wikileaks is a non-profit organization, it is supported by donations from individuals or entities who support its mission and operations. However, because they had published highly sensitive information on various topics, many providers have refused to pay the organization. These include Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, among others. This is why they’ve turned to the one form of currency that is impossible to censor, i.e., cryptocurrency. According to the organization’s official website, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, ZCash, Monero, and Ethereum are currently available for donation to Wikileaks.
