Edward Snowden promotes Bitcoin as US gov seizes fiat profits from new book

posted 29 days ago
Edward Snowden’s new book, “Permanent Record,” is a top selling book, it contains stories of how the US government routinely invades the privacy of people around the world. While the US can’t stop the publication of Snowden’s book, or censor it, on September 17th, the US filed a lawsuit against him and his publishing partners, stating the book should have first been submitted to the CIA or NSA, and thus, they claim he violated his contract, therefore he shouldn’t profit from the book.

Snowden took the new lawsuit as an opportunity to pump Bitcoin as a method to get around these new US sanctions, he tweeted “in conclusion this is good for bitcoin” (implying the government cannot regulate cryptocurrency transactions.)
