After the Neo-Nazis March in the American Charlottesville on August 12th, the largest Internet companies began to fight against xenophobic resources. The first to experience this was the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer, which called the victim of the clashes in Charlottesville "a fat childless whore". Thus, the website was stripped of its domain and hosting:

  • GoDaddy, Google and Ru-Centre stripped The Daily Stormer domains
  • Twitter and Facebook blocked The Daily Stormer accounts
  • CloudFlare service refused to protect The Daily Stormer from hackers
  • Apple Pay and PayPal stopped working with The Daily Stormer
  • Airbnb banned The Daily Stormer
  • Spotify deleted The Daily Stormer records
  • GoFundMe forbade the whip-round for helping The Daily Stormer
  • Discord messenger blocked The Daily Stormer group chats

Thus, The Daily Stormer found another place to settle in and now asks users to send Bitcoins in order to support them:

Apparently, as can be seen from the recent events such as HBO hacking, the cryptocurrency is becoming more and more dangerous weapon in the wrong hands. Thus, think twice before investing your funds.
