An April Fools Executive Order

On April Fools, President Obama passes a new executive order that allows American authorities to seize cryptocurrencys without warning.  The order itself is very vague but many supports of Bitcoin believe it is aimed at halting any donations to Snowden’s legal fund.  But in instead of preventing donations to Snowden’s legal fund, it in fact caused more donations.  Since the order was passed, the number of transactions have reached.  The donations range from a few cents to as much as two thousand dollars (his legal fund).  One Reddit user Kayrice donated 33 cents and announced on Reddit “Please come arrest me. I live in Oregon and my name is Kristopher Ives and you can reach me at 503-383-1047.”  Since Kayrice has donated to Snowden’s legal fund, there have been many more donations.
