Coinbase Suspends Wikileak’s Bitcoin Account

Home / Coinbase Suspends Wikileak’s Bitcoin Account

The WikiLeaks Shop account has been shut down by largest US crypto exchange on the suspicion of being ‘engaged in a prohibited use in violation’ of the platform’s Terms of Service. Therefore, WikiLeaks can no longer convert cryptocurrency payments into fiat. Coinbase did not provide any specific reason for this decision, and some suggest that this move was done under the influence of the Democratic National Committee, following their lawsuit against WikiLeaks, as well as against the Trump campaign and the Russian government alleging a conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 election campaign.
