Kim Dotcom Tips the Cap to Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange by Donating 10% of Bitcoin Fees

The prominent entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has announced that he is donating money to support the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. According to a tweet, 10% of the transaction fees from will be used to help Assange in his legal battle.

Dotcom affirmed that this may be sufficient money to enable the creator of WikiLeaks to face his battles in court and continue to tell the truth to the world.

At the moment, Assange may be extradited to the United States, where he may face up to 175 years in jail. With the money from donations, however, there is a chance that he might win the case and continue his work unharmed.

WikiLeaks also accepts donations, if you want to contribute. So far, it has received around $37 million USD from Bitcoin wallets.

Kim Dotcom Will Have His Company’s Initial Exchange Offering

This is not the first time that Dotcom has defended Assange and his motivations for doing this are pretty clear. He affirmed that the treatment that Assange is receiving right now shows the “rotten character of the intelligence community”.

A few years ago, Kim himself had his problems with the law. He was the owner of Megaupload, a popular site that was shut down by the FBI for hosting illegal content. Now, he is creating his new content sharing service and will conduct an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) on Bitfinex soon to raise the money for it.

The goal for the IEO is currently $8 million USD and each investor can only contribute with up to $50,000 USD unless they hold Bitfinex’s own token, which will let them invest up to $100,000 USD.
