Chainalysis: Capitol Protests Financed Through Bitcoin

Chainalysis seems to have discovered that someone sent Bitcoin to some Protestants on Capitol Hill before taking his life.

According to Yahoo News, Chainalysis‘ latest research seems to have found that „far-right activists“ at the Capitol protests received Bitcoin from a donor.

Bitcoin behind the Capitol protests

Chainalysis reported that on December 8 a donor sent 28.15 BTCs, or about $522,000 at the time it was transferred, to 22 separate addresses, many of which belonged to far-right activists who were present at the protest.

So, according to Yahoo News, authorities are already investigating the source of the funds. But it doesn’t end there, as the donation apparently came from a French programmer who died.

And, according to Chainalysis, a suicide note dated December 9 was found that said: „Western civilization is declining. I care what happens after my death… That’s why I decided to leave my modest wealth to certain causes and people“. This happened one day after I sent Crypto Legacy to the Protestants on Capitol Hill.

Consequently, eToro has warned its crypto community through an email that was shared on Twitter that it could be limiting trading on the platform over the weekend.

The problem is that, the founder of Quantum Economics, Mati Greenspan, a former eToro market analyst, advised users on Twitter not to attempt to pull funds from the platform because they could be symptoms of a potential liquidity crisis.

However, for the time being, the measures of the crypto platform seem to be aimed at stopping the purchase of crypto.
