A group of people called AssangeDAO has formed a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) to attempt to rescue Julian Assange. Julian Assange is the Wikileaks founder and campaigner who is now imprisoned in the UK.
The US government is looking into him after he published a series of 2010 Army intelligence disclosures that he received from Chelsea Manning. Because of his participation in leaking secret American intelligence information, the US wants Assange extradited to the US.
Assange is now detained in the London prison Belmarsh, where the whistleblower has been since 2019. Assangedao intends to bring attention to the corruption surrounding Assange’s case and assist in his release.
The aim, according to the group’s website, is to keep up the fight for Julian Assange. The website assangedao.org describes Julian Assange’s freedom. The website also has a quotation from Assange that reads, “One of the finest ways to accomplish justice is to expose injustice.”
Using current ethereum (ETH) currency rates, the Assange-centric DAO has collected 2,533.91 ether, or nearly USD 7.5 million. The DAO’s goal is to raise ethereum in exchange for the $JUSTICE governance token, which will be used to bid on a 1/1 NFT.
According to the group’s DAO campaign on juicebox.money, the non-fungible token (NFT) art was created by digital artist Pak in conjunction with Julian Assange. The Assange family has backed the initiative, according to the Assangedao team, and “has worked closely with the DAO.”
Will the DAO and NFT help Wikileaks founder. Let’s wait and watch.
