"Cryptocurrency researchers believe they've identified who made the transfer Dec. 8 of 28.15 bitcoins, valued at more than half a million dollars at the time, to 22 virtual wallets belonging to right-wing figures and websites, including VDARE, the Daily Stormer and Nick Fuentes, reported Yahoo News.

The account was linked to a French cryptocurrency exchange, according to researchers at the software company Chainalysis, and the transfers were made simultaneously."


Daily Stormer
Andrew Anglin is the founder of the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer website, which aptly takes its name from the gutter Nazi propaganda sheet known as Der Strmer.

Nick Fuentes
Nicholas J. "Nazi Nick" Fuentes (August 18, 1998")[3] is an American Nationalist alt-right Traditionalist Catholic, neo-Nazi, white supremacist, and Holocaust denier.

More of Trump's good people on both sides.

One has to believe someone thinks cryptos can't be traced... LMAO. I want to know the source of this. Because it was a French Exchange doesn't mean it came from France.

Er, isn't the Federal Reserve under the auspices of the Federal Government allowed to coin currency. I remember reading that in the Constitution a few times during the years.

Someone needs to ask Alex Jones who gave him the $500K he fronted to help cover the cost of Trump's 'Stop the Steal' rally and what happened afterwards:

Alex Jones says he paid $500,000 for rally that led to Capitol riot

Mr Jones pushed the conspiracy theory that antifa was responsible for Trump supporters attacking the US Capitol

F*** everybody that ever supported Bitcoin I warned criminal elements would take advantage of it in ways the supporters could not possibly anticipate.

Criminals use cash and various other anonymous stores of value. Should anything which isn't immediately connected with your personal identity be banned?

Cash comes with serial numbers and fingerprints and security cameras are frequently present.

Bitcoin was designed to be untraceable.

Paul Manafort and his cohorts used Turkish rugs to launder money. And I suspect that the Trump Organization has been using real estate transactions to do the same for years. Probably true for the Kushner's as well.

People ASSUME still it is untraceable. It is NOT untraceable. That is the beauty of block chain and in particular this one in bitcoin - the history of ALL transactions is there. You can trace it unlike cash.

True. But it was sent from an Exchange...which are not hard to trace. Many require authentication with ID cards and records to deposit and trade on them.
