CandyKisses: New York Times: Hamas and Islamic Jihad raised $130 million via cryptocurrencies
The New York Times reported that Hamas and Islamic Jihad have raised $130 million in cryptocurrencies over the past years.
US Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, Wally Ademo, warned that the U.S. will go after cryptocurrency companies that fail to prevent terrorist groups from transferring funds.
Some authorities say the war in Gaza could lead to an increase in the collection of crypto funds by terrorist groups. Tom Alexandrovich, executive director of the Cyber Defense Division at Israel’s National Internet Directorate, said there is a “surplus” increase in the collection of encrypted funds for terrorist groups as they are cut off by traditional sources such as banks.
Shlomit Wagman, a Harvard researcher and former head of Israel’s Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Authority, who testified at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on terrorist financing this week, said encryption is a “problem” but not the main source of Hamas funding. Government actors, such as Iran and Turkey, are the main funding drivers for Palestinian terrorist groups, followed by commercial portfolios with real estate, investments, humanitarian aid and fundraising, including cryptography.
In April, Hamas’s armed wing announced that it would stop collecting donations from Bitcoin because activity was tracked and donors were exposed.
Frank26 Why does the world want to pour into Iraq now when it’s still a sanctioned programed rate? The answer is because Sudani is showing them the Monetary reform mechanism and it includes a new exchange rate for a new national currency IMO…
Frank26 [Iraq boots-on-the-ground report] FIREFLY: It sounds like they’re saying January 1st as the a date the stabilization process will be complete. FRANK: Remember I told you…between now and January 1st there’s a two-week phase/time Frame inside of these two months of November and December where these two weeks will play an important part in what we’re studying. So it doesn’t have to go all the way to January the 1st for it to be announced. It can be announced and released inside of this time frame. That’s what Sudani is telling the Iraqi citizens – We got stability.
