WikiLeaks has received more than 4,043 bitcoin in donations on its old address, worth $39 million. A week ago, WikiLeaks changed its chief Bitcoin address, already accruing significant donations and WikiLeaks now holds about 6.12 BTC in its new wallet.
A message signed with the old private key pointed to the new donation address. It should also be noted that the number of bitcoin transactions has increased globally following the increase in the popularity and usability of Bitcoin around the globe.
Most Central banks are also considering a digital currency because of the level of success which has been recorded by bitcoin in recent years.
