Supporters have donated almost $100,000 in cryptocurrency to white supremacist Stefan Molyneux after his YouTube channel had been banned for “fomenting violence and hatred.”
Molyneux issued a request for donations in cryptocurrency through his website. As of press time, his supporters have sent 433 BCH, dozens small Bitcoin transactions of mostly 0.001 BTC or less, three small ETH donations totaling roughly $10, 0.3 Dash, no Skycoin, and no DOGE.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) describes Molyneux as “a skilled propagandist and an effective communicator within the racist alt-right and pro-Trump ranks” promoting scientific racism and eugenics.
The SPLC currently tracks identified Bitcoin wallets that help provide donations to neo Nazis like Molyneux. The center says hate group leaders and other influential extremists prefer crypto donations because “no company and no government” can intervene to stop the money from flowing to less-than-reputable causes.
