Sources report that The Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) will now accept donations in multiple cryptocurrencies. This includes Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Zcash (ZEC).
First major crypto donation
On Monday, the non-profit organization accepted a donation of 1000 ether coins to mark its first major cryptocurrency contribution. The decentralized network for censorship resistance, Mainframe made the donation.
The company had distributed their new coin for free at a party in Hong Kong. The crypto tokens rained down into the eager hands of the attendees via a shower of confetti and balloons. The Utah-based secure messaging start-up had planned 25 such events to “airdrop” $1 million worth of crypto coins.

Bitcoin donations to FPF
The Freedom of the Press foundation have actually been accepting Bitcoin donations from 2013. However Bitcoin’s Stripe integration was often broken. The FPF stopped accepting Bitcoin after Stripe removed support for Bitcoin in January. FPF also said that they’re launching a new page to accept digital coins directly from crypto wallets.
Donations to WikiLeaks was suspended by PayPal in 2010. And cryptocurrency donations offer an alternative solution to these to traditional payment platforms.
