This week the web portal Antiwar.com, a site dedicated to non-interventionism and the opposition of war, has announced the nonprofit is expanding its acceptance of digital currencies. Antiwar plans to accept three more decentralized cryptocurrencies in order to enhance donor privacy.
Antiwar.com Now Accepts Bitcoin Cash, Dash, and Zcash for Donations
Antiwar.com is an activist website initiated in 1995 dedicated to promoting freedom and ending the military-industrial complex. The nonprofit is a recognized 501(c)3 organization and was one of the earliest known charities to accept bitcoin donations back in 2012. This week Antiwar has announced it will be expanding its acceptance of digital assets and will now accept bitcoin cash, zcash, and dash.
The acceptance of the three new cryptocurrencies was announced on the same day as the nonprofit's Armistice 2017 project. 'Armistice Day' was the original name for Veteran's Day and focused on the celebration of peace. General donations help the group promote the pro-peace movement's message on this day by asking people to recognize peace instead of war.
The advocacy group and war reporting news organization's move to allow more cryptocurrencies was planned to "further enhance donor privacy and protection from big brother's prying eyes."
Antiwar.com adopted Bitcoin usage five years ago, recognizing its (then) enhanced privacy features and low transaction costs. Now that digital currency in maturing, we want to take advantage of tokens that offer even greater security and privacy features.
Precautions to Protect Antiwar.com Supporters from Government Overreach
Ms. Keaton believes the non-interventionist ideology is growing, but governments are monitoring individuals and groups who support the movement against war. Cryptocurrencies add a layer of privacy where users can promote ideas that are considered controversial to the current status quo.
