It’s Official Visa and MasterCard has now lifted the payment block on #WikiLeaks
WikiLeaks’s payment provider, DataCell, said it’s again able to accept credit-card payments seven months after Visa Europe Ltd. and MasterCard Inc. (MA) blocked donations to the website.
DataCell is using an alternative-payment gateway to process money sent through MasterCard, the world’s second-largest payments network, and Visa Europe, which runs the largest card network in the European Union, Reykjavik, Iceland-based DataCell said in a statement today.
“DataCell is happy to report that we are now able again to process donations to WikiLeaks,” the company said. “We choose to interpret this as that Visa and MasterCard has in fact given in to our demand” to reinstate the service.
MasterCard’s website was attacked by hackers last month and in December after the Purchase, New York-based firm and Visa Europe blocked WikiLeaks from using its network to collect funds from donors. WikiLeaks, led by Julian Assange, publishes secret documents, including confidential U.S. diplomatic and military information. The December attack on MasterCard was orchestrated by hacker group Anonymous, TechCrunch reported at the time.
