Cryptocurrency investments provide a financial safety net for a Facebook whistleblower


Former Facebook employee turned whistleblower, Frances Haugen, disclosed that her refuge in Puerto Rico is presently being sustained by a promisingly timed bitcoin investment. She also received financial assistance from nonprofit organisations backed by eBay co-founder Pierre Omidyar.

Before accusing Facebook of disseminating contentious and insensitive disinformation, Haugen worked as a product manager for the firm. She apparently has a number of confidential studies which she conducted, that demonstrate “Facebook puts profit before the well-being of children and all users”, according to her. Earlier, Facebook faced accusations of working with Russian agents to sway the 2016 presidential election in the United States.

Gaining financial stability as a result of cryptocurrency

When queried about her financial condition in an interview with the New York Times, Haugen said, “For the foreseeable future, I’m alright. Because I did acquire crypto at the appropriate time.”

The informer also obtained financial assistance from non-profit organisations (NPOs) supported by eBay co-founder Pierre Omidyar. Omidyar’s NPO funds, on the other hand, were only in use to support travel and related expenses, according to Haugen.

Haugen claims that relocating to Puerto Rico allowed her to join her “crypto buddies”. Who benefit from capital tax deductions on Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrency holdings.
