Wikileaks Cache Now Hosted on IPFS Thanks to this Bitcoin Cash Developer

Wikileaks Cache Now Hosted on IPFS Thanks to this Bitcoin Cash Developer

With the founder of Wikileaks behind bars, it’s been a trying time for activists who believe in spreading freedom and truth in an age steeped in lies and manipulation from parasitic central bankers and bureaucrats. In order to show support for Julian Assange, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) developer Chris Troutner decided to upload the entire Wikileaks cache of documents to the Inter-Planetary File System (IPFS) and the BCH chain so the truth can be read forever.

Truth Is Treason in an Empire of Lies

Since April 11, there’s been a lot of attention directed toward Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. His arrest stems from indictment charges from March 2010 that allege Assange and former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning cracked the country’s Department of Defense server password. The leaks that were distributed back then caused chaos for politicians and financial elites supporting the military industrial complex because they exposed horrific crimes against humanity. One specific video leaked in 2010 by Wikileaks called Collateral Murder displayed a U.S. helicopter gunning down targeted individuals but they also killed innocent people including children, journalists, and Reuters photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen age 22.

After the trove of documents, files, and videos were released, Wikileaks faced a financial blockade where payment processors like Paypal, Visa, and Mastercard prevented the website from receiving donations. This was when the Bitcoin network came to the rescue and Wikileaks decided to accept the digital currency for donations. Chelsea Manning (then known as Bradley) was charged with treason and sent to Guantanamo Bay. Assange went on the run, faced charges in Sweden for an alleged rape case, and found himself hiding in the Ecuadorian Embassy in the U.K. for the next seven years. Manning was since pardoned by U.S. President Obama before he left office, but was recently arrested for indictment charges against her and Assange. After the April 11 arrest, Assange is now being held in London at the moment and may face charges in Sweden and be extradited to the U.S. as well.

Hosting the Wikileaks Cache of Files on the BCH Chain and IPFS

Lots of Bitcoin proponents have supported Assange and Wikileaks for years for leaking thought-provoking documents without hesitation. Since the arrest three days ago, Wikileaks and Assange have managed to gather $ 41,000 in BTC donations. Another endeavor that took place in order to show support for Wikileaks was when BCH programmer Chris Troutner uploaded the entire Wikileaks cache to the BCH chain and IPFS. This means the 30GB of files can be downloaded and viewed by anyone at any time for as long as the BCH and IPFS networks exist. The website Wikileaks.cash has the entire database which includes documents stemming from the controversial wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, leaked FBI data, Homeland Security papers, Barclay’s tax avoidance, the infamous Bilderberg meeting transcripts, and FEMA reports.

Of course, Wikileaks.cash can be accessed directly but the archive can also be downloaded via torrent software. Troutner has also published step-by-step directions on how to help syndicate the Wikileaks archive over IPFS. Essentially, you need to install IPFS and initialize an IPFS node to get the daemon running. You can optionally connect the IPFS node to the cloud server and download the content, which also helps syndicate it. From there, you can pin the content so the computer will continue to share it. Troutner’s walkthrough is hosted on Memo.cash which is also embedded into the BCH chain.

The bureaucracy today has created an Orwellian nightmare and many have grown worrisome about the removal of financial privacy and seeing whistleblowers being scorned for telling the truth. A system like Bitcoin, with its censorship resistance, yields many benefits that include furthering the dissemination of information the elite would like to stifle. Having the Wikileaks data hosted on the BCH chain and IPFS helps bolster the documents’ preservation and syndication over time. These days, telling the truth truly has become a revolutionary act and bitcoin cash, with the help of the community behind it, is helping to keep that insurrectionary spirit alive.

A Crypto Talk Show in India

A crypto TV talk show called Hard Fork is launching in India. According to the producers, the show “will dive deep into the issues of the sector, intricacies of the subjects, and outlook of the leaders from the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency.”

News.Bitcoin.com talked to Shantanu Sharma, the host of the show and founder of Incryptt Labs. His company conducts workshops, seminars, education programs and roundtable discussions on cryptocurrencies, blockchain and related technologies. He explained that the show is produced by media startup and TV channel Founderindia. Noting that it will be fully recorded and aired in English in an “in-conversation-with” format, he elaborated:

The channel along with the flagship show – Hard Fork will go on air on 22nd of April, 2019 … We are planning 10 episodes in the first season.

“We are hoping to record enough content for at least 30 mins of episodes each,” Sharma detailed. Currently, the plan is to broadcast one episode per week but, based on “feedback from viewers, especially the community, we might increase the frequency,” he remarked. “We also plan to use the audio of all the shows for regular podcasts,” the host further noted.

The show will be aired on Amazon Fire TV and promoted through various social media platforms, the Incryptt Labs founder clarified. It will also be available on Youtube and Facebook.

Topics of Discussion

Sharma also shared with news.Bitcoin.com some of the topics that are planned for the show. “We will touch upon several issues concerned with the sector,” he pointed out and proceeded to describe four areas he called the “broader vision” of the show.

Firstly, the team wants to “showcase to the world what we are doing in India in blockchain and cryptos.” They will also “be driving a learning and advocacy agenda,” Sharma detailed, emphasizing that they “want to excite people to look at this industry, adopt it, set up businesses in it, build talent for this industry.” The team also plans on “using this medium to bring forth people, their ideas, their work, their struggles and the challenges they face and how they are overcoming them.” Lastly, “There is this burning issue of legality and regulatory aspect we want to touch upon too,” Sharma opined.

The show hopes “to showcase the Indian perspective” about the crypto industry, according to its announcement which also provides additional details of the topics that will be covered. They include “different blockchains, their pros and cons, bitcoins, altcoins, mining, products and other technology developments, investing, trading, and ICOs.”

Sharma also revealed that while the show will cover news from abroad:

A lot of the show will be about India … We will definitely touch upon the Indian regulation on the show – that is a hot topic and burning issue in the Indian crypto community.

India’s crypto regulation is being drafted by an interministerial committee headed by Subhash Chandra Garg, Secretary of Department of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Finance. The government’s counsel told the supreme court in February that this panel was in its final stages of deliberations. However, when it was expected to submit a report to the court on March 29, the court adjourned without addressing the matter until July 23.
