Coinbase Bans Crypto User Milo Yiannopoulos
Milo Yiannopoulos is a political commentator and writer that has several times complained about Islam, atheism, feminism, and many other topics. At the same time, he has also been involved with white supremacists and neo-nazi groups.
The information was released a few hours ago by Yiannopoulos on social media, but Coinbase didn’t provide any information about the issue as of now. There are other social networks such as Facebook and Instagram that banned him alongside other individuals such as Alex Jones and Louis Farrakhan.
During the last few months, social media platforms have de-platforming users and individuals that were promoting hate speech. In general, these people such as Milo tend to promote a specific idea rather than open a controversial debate around some topics.
Milo was banned from Coinbase just a few minutes after opening an account on the platform. This shows that there are several individuals that are blacklisted even before having an account created. Furthermore, Coinbase is one of the most popular crypto exchanges around the world and it is not allowing some users to have access to digital assets.
There are other wallets that do not require users to provide their names, identity or information to receive and send digital assets, which is good for privacy and to protect users’ data. In general, exchanges have been blocking Bitcoins and other digital assets related to hacks and attacks from scammers and fraudsters. These platforms have also blacklisted crypto addresses that cannot deal with the exchange.
