Fight For The Future accepts 50+ cryptocurrencies to keep Internet free

Fight For the Future is a US advocacy group founded in October 2011 by Tiffiniy Cheng and Holmes Wilson. Its mission is to ensure that the web continues to be free for all, free of interference or censorship, and supports full privacy.

In October 2018, FFTF teamed up with WeTrustPlatform to accept cryptocurrency donations. The non-profit accepts some 56 cryptocurrencies at the time of writing. The full list is here.

Our donations allow FFTF keep defending net neutrality and fighting mass surveillance by governments and corporations. And the history shows received donations weren’t wasted.

Here’s a quick round-up of FFTF’s main achievements. In 2012, FFTF formed a coalition called the Internet Defense League that organized the largest online protest in history—an internet-wide strike against web censorship that defeated the SOPA and PIPA bills. More recently, they launched a follow-up campaign CSIPA is Back, aiming to defeat the draconian bills for good. Their Battle for the Net campaign mobilized millions of people to fight for net neutrality against lobbyists, big cable companies, and their pawns who introduced three bills in Congress to undermine net neutrality. FFTF had nearly four million people contact the FCC which resulted in the passage of game-changing net neutrality rules (known as the “First Amendment” for the Internet). In 2016, together with a musician Tom Morello‘s label Firebrand Records they organized a Rock Against the TPP multi-city tour in protest against the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Most recently, the group set up a website and simple guide with advice and tools to help internet users protect their own privacy.

Today, the FFTF website features a big line-up of campaigns. Fight For The Future’s accomplishments are testament to the fact that with our little donations and their hard work, the public interest can prevail even over some of the most bureaucratic political forces in the world.

If our post compelled you to make a cryptocurrency donation, you can do so on their website.
