The uncensored social media platform, Gab, announced that founder Andrew Torba’s account on the crypto money exchange Coinbase was closed.
The personal Coinbase account of Andrew Torba, founder of the unconcerned social media platform Gab, was closed. Gab announced this on his social media account on January 4th.
As Blocker’s blog site Breaker reported earlier, it was claimed that Gab ‘s account at Coinbase was closed in December. The source, he argued, is likely to be the payment of a payment processor because it is known that people banned from mainstream platforms due to hate speech and social media platforms.
Last October, the New York Times mentioned Gab as a social network that an attacker in Pittsburgh used to send a last message before attacking a synagogue. After the attack, Torba, the founder of the platform, made a statement that the attacker did not represent the broad user base of the social media platform.
Gab describes himself as a social network that supports freedom of speech, individual liberty and free online information.
Last April, the non-profit international anonymous publishing organization WikiLeaks’s account at Coinbase was closed for service infringement.
Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, called in December 2017 to use crypto coins while contributing to online publications to donors to get rid of the financial blockade of national governments.
About a week ago, the prestigious American magazine Time published an article about the liberating potential of Bitcoin. The article argues that this potential can be achieved by providing economic flow that the repressive governments cannot reach.
The author of the article claims that speculation, fraud and greed in the world of crypto-money and Blockchain overshadows the liberating potential of Satoshi Nakamoto’s invention.
In March, US informant Edward Snowden said the world needed a better option than Bitcoin to avoid pressures from governments. He also reiterated his support for ZCash, the most interesting subcoin because of its privacy features.
