Right-wing organizations and personalities, including VDARE, the Daily Stormer and Nick Fuentes, received significant donations that researchers believe were meant to bolster their far-right causes.///

And notice - Bit coin is supposed to be anonymous.If it can be tracked, what good is it?
Why even bother posting clearly fake news disinformation, propaganda and dirty tricks?
Yup, but so what if the bitcoins were transferred.
If they were bought and someone wanted to cash them in, they have the right.
You can’t go punishing people for what you think they might do with something that you don’t approve of and that’s what the left is all about.
98% of what you read on the internet is BS.
Are they trying to say that transferring the Bitcoin was illegal or receiving it? Or is it just #orangemanbad?
So, people sent weird fake internet money to political groups they agree with. Okay. Not exactly horrifying stuff.
Maybe they can find out how Trump votes were swapped to Gropin' Joe.
Funny how easy that was but impossible
to trace money to
First rule in reading any quote from the media - if the words “anonymous sources”, or “someone within the party” or other vague source or no name means liar liar statement!
An itsy, bitzy fraction of the funds that were sent to BLM.
Dorsey is currently in a conflict with Steve Mnuchen and FinCENN over Mnucins's proposed anti-moneylaundering "Know Your Costumer" regulations.
How many leftist organizations and politicians have received contributions from China to their crypto wallets in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies?
Why would those guys help Trump? He hasn't done much for their causes at all.
I posted two sources and I can’t change the headlines. I don’t like Trump supporters being lumped in with alt-right, but there’s some interesting info between the two articles.
I”m as interested as anyone else why alt-right groups would be accepting bitcoins from a foreign stranger. When did the FBI know about this? Who on the alt-right side contributed to disruption of an otherwise peaceful rally knowing it would be at the expense of President Trump? And why isn’t it wider knowledge that people on the terror watch list were ‘dozens’ of players at the Jan 6 protest?
Agree. How many regular citizens even have a bitcoin? This article is BS.
Please don't criticize the poster.
Take issue with the article all you want. I wouldn't know about this if it wasn't posted here.
I didn’t get anything.
I don’t know what IBT is, but i looked at this article and another one on their site about Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani.
This is some sort of a lefty site. The 2nd article quotes a Marc Elias tweet and sez Trump stiffed Giuliani from being paid. Sez Trump did thatcto a lot of his workers.
Anyone have background on the site or reporters involved?
