Wikileaks Calls for Global Blockade of Coinbase After Its Shop Was Blocked

• https://news.bitcoin.com, Kevin Helms

Wikileaks announced on Friday that "Coinbase has blocked the official @Wikileaks shop from its platform without notice or explanation."

The shop sells swag such as clothing, accessories, phone cases, stickers, posters, books, and has recently added Cryptokitties.

The organization also posted part of a letter they claim was sent to them from Coinbase which references the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (Fincen). The letter states that "Coinbase is a regulated Money Service Business under Fincen," and is "obligated to implement regulatory compliance mechanisms," adding:

"Upon careful review, we believe your account has engaged in prohibited use in violation of our Terms of Service and we regret to inform you that we can no longer provide you with access to our service."
