According to a former Facebook product manager turned whistleblower, her financial status is “good” because of her bitcoin investments.
Frances Haugen, a Facebook whistleblower, has indicated that her financial future is “good” since she purchased an unknown quantity of cryptocurrency at “the correct moment.”
Cryptocurrency provides financial security
Politico revealed last week that Haugen got funding from several non-profit organizations, which she utilized purely for “traveling and related costs.” One of them is funded by Pierre Omidyar, a millionaire entrepreneur and co-founder of eBay, who allegedly donated $150,000 to Whistleblower Aid, which represents Haugen.
For the foreseeable future, I’m fine because I did buy crypto at the right time,” Haugen said
Leaked Facebook Documents
Before becoming a whistleblower and bringing Facebook into the limelight, Haugen worked as a product manager for the social media network. She gave the Wall Street Journal access to tens of thousands of Facebook internal papers known as The Facebook Files.
According to the papers, Haugen accused the social media site of promoting disinformation and sensitive content, ranging from human trafficking to destructive nationalist organizations to falsehoods about the COVID-19 vaccination. She said that Facebook “prioritizes business over the well-being of minors and all users” and that the firm had overlooked and dismissed the majority of its employees’ complaints about the content.
After disclosing the data, she traveled to Puerto Rico to address a “health ailment” and meet up with her “crypto buddies” on the island, which is a haven for digital asset enthusiasts because of capital tax exemptions.
Cryptocurrency and Whistleblowers
Edward Snowden, a former computer intelligence specialist who disclosed highly sensitive information from the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013, is another whistleblower who favors cryptocurrencies. He’s been a long-time supporter of the crypto industry and feels that China’s anti-mining drive has strengthened rather than weakened Bitcoin.
Snowden has stated that CBDCs (Central Bank Digital Currencies) is a “perversion of cryptocurrencies.”
