Cody Wilson Of Defense Distributed Makes An Appeal To Bitcoin Whales


The startup Defense Distributed has called Bitcoin whales to donate to the legal defense fund the company has. Cody Wilson, currently the head of the organization, is calling Bitcoin whales to increase the amount of funds that the startup is receiving.

The organization aims to distribute open source, downloadable 3D-printed weapons, a controversial activity that has been blocked by a Washington state federal judge.

Cody Wilson wrote a tweet in which he asks important cryptocurrency investors to place their funds into the startup.

Defense Distributed’s defense fund gathered more than $100,000 dollars, of the $400,000 dollars goal previously established. It is possible to receive donations in US Dollars, Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Moreover, all the gifts made with Bitcoin Cash will be matched 1 to 1 by the famous site Bitcoin.com.

For those interested individuals, credit card and cryptocurrency donations are eligible for a federal tax deduction.

It seems that Cody is trying to capture the attention of important investors. However, some Twitter users commented that due to the fact that the organization partnered with Roger Ver, owner of Bitcoin.com, they are reluctant to give more funds.

Additionally, some other users asked why Monero (XMR) or Zcoin (XZC) are not accepted. The truth is that privacy coins may be better suited for such kinds of donations and to protect the privacy of the users.

Other Twitter users asked why they did not distribute blueprints on platforms such as BitTorrent or OpenBazaar.

This startup is very controversial. Several attorneys general and state police forces stated that these downloadable weapons would be damaging public safety and create more injuries, death and chaos in the United States and other countries.

However, access to these blueprints is related to the First Amendment and free speech issue. Defense Distributed wants to help everyone to have access to self-defense.

Amazon, the largest internet retailer in the world, decided to ban the sale of Defense Distributed blueprints on its site. According to the company, it was violating content guidelines.
