By now most people have heard of whistleblower Edward Snowden and his story. Snowden had leaked millions of documents containing classified material to multiple media sources. These documents were most famous for the evidence showing the United States government spying on Internet users and wiretapping our phone calls. Snowden has since been in hiding, primarily in Russia, and is currently wanted by the U.S.

When Snowden spoke on this incident he stated:

I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.

Although Snowden does have people of wealth and power on his side, it is still obvious that his legal battle will be long and expensive. Many people enjoy Bitcoin because of the privacy factor behind. These people are usually referred to as Bitcoin enthusiast. What many Bitcoin enthusiasts may not be aware of is that the website for his legal battle accepts donations in the form of Bitcoin. This continues to show the usefulness of Bitcoin due to the fact that more and more causes are beginning to accept Bitcoin as donations rather than solely from Paypal or credit cards; although the website also accepts PayPal, Discover, Amex, Visa, MasterCard, and even donations by cheque or money transfer.
