Why was Julian Assange arrested?
It is still unclear whether Julian Assange has been arrested to extradite him to the United States where he had been declared wanted from a couple of years or he has been arrested for skipping bails as he was wanted in Sweden for a variety of charges relating to an alleged sexual assault.
The price of bitcoin is also experiencing a sharp decline today after rising up to around $5500 yesterday evening. Some people are also speculating that the crash of bitcoin might be related to the sudden arrest of the founder of WikiLeaks.
Bitcoin Donations of Wikileaks:
Cryptocurrency enthusiasts from around the world have been supporting Julian Assange from quite a long time and just after his arrest, the donations on the official WikiLeaks address have been rising with the wallet currently standing at a balance of around $3.11 BTC (at the time of publishing) with more than 30 transactions appearing after the arrest of the founder of Wikileaks.
A lot of people have been supporting Julian which includes Kim Dotcom (Entrepreneur) who tweeted after the arrest of Julian Assange stating that the current situation is a moment of shame committed by Ecuadorian, UK and the US. However, the tweet was soon deleted by him. Afterward, he tweeted again stating that telling truth cannot be termed as a crime and motivating people to donate for the platform.
Telling the world the TRUTH about war crimes, human rights abuses, corruption, election fraud and abuses of power IS NOT A CRIME.
