WikiLeaks Shop reportedly screenshot a tweet from an alleged email by Coinbase stating the organization violated their terms of service. Coinbase has yet to respond to the specific email regarding the violations of Wikileaks Shop at this time.

Due to the non-confirmed violation, WikiLeaks posted a tweet calling for a “global blockade” of Coinbase.

WikiLeaks will call for a global blockade of Coinbase next week as an unfit member of the crypto community. Coinbase, a large Californian Bitcoin processor, responding to a concealed influence, has blocked the entirely harmless @WikiLeaksShop in a decision approved by management. https://t.co/PAldF8b12P

BTC advocate Andreas M. Antonopoulos makes a great point on one of his recent tweets by stating…

We have come full circle. Many people’s interest in bitcoin started when Wikileaks was out under an extra judicial embargo by VISA, MC, PayPal and banks. Now Coinbase has repeated history. Oops. https://t.co/b8HQkoOwyQ

Andreas also commented on his tweet that the embargo held up by Coinbase is unlike the first in that it’s “purely symbolic” as there are other crypto wallets out there. The symbolism is a reminder of what centralization and banking regulations stand. This tends to be the stance that Coinbase is currently undertaking.
