Canadians donated half the funds for the truckers' protest, leaked data shows

The Bitcoin campaign, which received more than 5,000 donations, mostly small dollars, was bolstered by a handful of big infusions of cryptocurrency boosters. The two largest, with a combined value of more than $300,000 at the time of their manufacture, were donated anonymously.

A series of others worth around $42,000 each appear to be associated with an online challenge launched by a former software engineer who goes by the alias LaserHodl and asked other Bitcoin fans to join him in supporting the convoy of truckers. Jesse Powell, founder of crypto exchange Kraken, tweeted his agreementand a gift assigned to him appears in the data.

Benjamin Dichter, one of the organizers of the convoy, said during a press conference last week that after the start of the cryptocurrency crowdfunding campaign, he received offers of help from “big players” in the crypto markets.

“I was shocked at how quickly I started receiving messages from some of the most prominent Bitcoiners in the world,” he said.

The GiveSendGo data leak was announced Sunday evening on a webpage titled “GiveSendGo IS NOW FROZEN”, along with a five-minute video in which a manifesto from the anonymous hackers scrolled across the screen. In it, the hackers complained that the truckers’ protest had ‘held a city hostage’ and warned that it ‘could cover up a type of Trojan horse attack where extremists and militias could arrive in a big way number with weapons”.

The data contains a record for each donation that includes the donor’s name, postal code, and email address they used. It’s not possible to independently verify every donation, but some do align with donations that appeared publicly on the GiveSendGo website before it was taken offline.

For example, Mr. Siebel was quoted last week by a Canadian news network, who noted that his name was listed with the $90,000 donation, at the time it was made, on the convoy campaign webpage. About half of the donations were not accompanied by a person’s name when they appeared publicly on the page.
