Defense Distributed Appeals to Bitcoin Whales
The Texas nonprofit, headed by anarchist and activist Cody Wilson, is an organization that aims to distribute open source, downloadable 3D-printed weapons. After several attorneys general sued earlier this month, a Washington state federal judge temporarily blocked the release of ten blueprints ordered the website to be shut down. Cody Wilson is determined to fight back in court. On Thursday he made an appeal to cryptocurrency enthusiasts on Twitter, asking them to donate to Defense Distributed’s legal defense fund.
