Shortly after the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Assange, the WikiLeaks official BTC address received an increase in the amount of money. Shortly after the news of Assange’s arrest, WikiLeaks posted a link to a donation page on Twitter. This may be the reason for the sudden surge in Bitcoin address trading volume. Despite the increase in donations, the total amount donated to its current address was only $150,000 worth of BTC, more than one-third of which was received by WikiLeaks before Assange was arrested. At the time of this writing, data from Blockchain.com showed that WikiLeaks' BTC address received a total of 161 donations, and today there are more than 40 donations.
