North Korean dissidents are using Ethereum to overthrow Kim Jong-un

A political dissident group in North Korea known as the Cheollima Civil Defense (CCD) is selling special ’post-liberation blockchain visas’ for cryptocurrency to raise funds for overthrowing Kim Jong-un. They have allegedly already collected over $57,000 in Bitcoin. The group said it will allow anyone who purchases a Free Joseon Genesis Visa to visit North Korea once it has been ’liberated’.

Yeah..... but this actually does nothing does it. It’s basically a less fun ‘buy a moon plot’ scheme.

I'm not huge on government take overs, but more so, if it's their country and not say, America doing the overthrowing (*cough cough* Hillary Clinton-Giddafy, now millions of African slaves captured & created because of what we did by overthrowing him), but if the citizens can manage to oust Kim Jeong Un, without too much violence, hell, go for it (citizens of THAT COUNTRY!)!
