U.S. feds are investigating bitcoin donations to right-wing groups shortly before last week's Capitol riots.
Yesterday, we noted Chainalysis' revelation that at least $500,000 worth of bitcoin was donated to alt-right celebrities the week prior to the Capitol riot.
- Chainalysis explained in a Thursday blog post that Nick Fuentes, the far-right celebrity who livestreamed the Capitol takeover, received a $250,000 bitcoin donation on Dec. 8.
- Other recipients included owners of alt-right sites and channels like Luke Smith, Patrick Casey, Unz.com, and Daily Stormer.
- New York Times reporters are investigating.
