Earlier this week WikiLeaks released a swath of Trade In Services Agreement (TISA) documents to tell people more about a planned trade agreement to regulate business in some of the world’s largest economies.

To get more documents WikiLeaks fears will change global trade and freedom, on Tuesday WikiLeaks announced a $100,000 reward.

At the time this story was published Thursday, near half of the $100,000 bounty had been raised. The bounty is the first of its kind for WikiLeaks and the start of a new program for the organization, Politico reported.
