This is the first time we have heard about financial persecution for defending internet freedom in the Tor community. We're very concerned about PayPal's lack of transparency, and we urge them to reinstate this user’s account.


Alternatively he could just use #Bitcoin and not be subject to the whims of PayPal's financial censorship.


@lizard @torproject Until your identity is linked to your BTC address, then it's over. Bitcoin is not censorship proof.

@nosat @torproject

Seems you don't understand how #Bitcoin works.

Are you suggesting that all of the miners in the world would not add payments to Tor donation addresses to a block? Wrong! If there is a transaction fee attached, donations to Tor will get added to a block.

Bitcoin works because all parties act in their own self interest. In the case of miners they are interested in maximizing their income.

@lizard @torproject Yes the TX itself cannot be censored until the majority of miners are forced into compliance.

But a powerful adversary can monitor the address and harass, intimidate, or physically harm those involved in the transactions.

Don't underestimate the blue hair communist death cult.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
