An example of blockchain being used for activism in China

Hi Wairimu,

Thank you for sharing this. This is indeed a new use for blockchain.
Freedom of speech is an essential part of human life and in this case it’s
being used to highlight the issue China is facing.

I believe this should be made possible to to every nation where freedom of
speech is muzzled and bring freedom to it’s citizens.
