Born in Australia, Julian Assange is the founder of WikiLeaks. The site is dedicated to disclosing government and business-related leaks. It suffered the first financial blockade in 2011 and started accepting bitcoin since then. At that time, Paypal, Mastercard, Visa and Bank of America all banned users from making donations to WikiLeaks. As a result, the site began accepting bitcoin donations on June 14, 2011.n
