Wikileaks notes a surge in bitcoin donations following Julian Assange arrest

Wikileaks has noted a sudden increase of donations following the arrest of Julian Assange, the Next Web writes. Assange has been charged with "conspiracy to commit computer intrusion," according to the E.S. Department of Justice.

On Thursday, Ecuador withdrew Assange’s political asylum and British police arrested him at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he'd been living since 2012. After the arrest, Wikileaks tweeted a link to its donation page.
