Cipherpunks are a class of online activists who believe that strong cryptography should be employed against government and corporate oppression.

Many famous cryptographers are known cipherpunks who developed their software for idealistic reasons in order to promote personal freedoms and to allow dissidents to escape repressive regimes.

Some of these cipherpunks are behind the cryptographic technology contained in Bitcoin. Adam Back, for example, developed HashCash which is the Proof of Work concept involved in Bitcoin mining.
