When digital assets were created, the founders were trying to eliminate the need for a central authority. Never in their mind, would they have thought of an application where it’s used to topple a government? However, it would seem that they’re now being used as a financing tool for political revolutionaries who are looking to free the state of North Korea from the tight grip of Kim Jong-Un.
On March 17, a dissident group of North Korean political “anarchists” posted a plan on its official website to raise funds that will help it to oust the dictatorship regime of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un. Of course, this isn’t news. People have been trying to overthrow Kim for years. However, what mainly brings this group’s efforts into the spotlight is their medium; digital assets.
