Julian Assange Agrees with Bitcoin As a Way to Free Catalonia From Spain’s Dictate
A recent report from BBC News indicates that the Spanish government will seize control of the finances of the autonomous region of Catalonia within 48 hours, if they don’t stop the ‘illegal’ referendum vote regarding independence.
Jullian Assange, the freedom-touting founder of Wikileaks, quickly tweeted his support of the referendum, as well as a comment on the importance of Bitcoin in this regard.

Support from Wikileaks
The vote was proposed after years of the wealthy region paying into the central government far more than it received in public services.
The Spanish government has threatened to take control of all financial transactions in order to stop the spending of state funds on illegal acts.
As liquidity and use-cases for Bitcoin increase, its position as a supra-governmental currency will continue to stabilize.
