The Freedom of the Press Foundation Now Accepts Five Cryptocurrencies
The Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2012 that aims to promote free speech and freedom of the press or freedom of the media. The organization's board members have included well-known luminaries such as Glenn Greenwald, Daniel Ellsberg, Laura Poitras, and one of the world-famous whistleblower Edward Snowden. The FPF is attributed to the open-source whistleblower submission system called Securedrop which was also co-created by the hacktivist Aaron Swartz. Now the FPF is accepting five different cryptocurrencies for donations toward the nonprofit's active campaigns and promoting free speech.
"We are pleased to announce that press freedom supporters and cryptocurrency enthusiasts can now donate to Freedom of the Press Foundation — Your donations support our projects to advance press freedom, including Securedrop, the open source whistleblower submission platform used by more than 60 news organizations worldwide," explains the FPF.
