Rejected by Coinbase and BitPay, Gab Finally Lands a Crypto Payment Processor-9.74

Gab, a social platform that welcomes those who have been banned by mainstream social networks for posting hate speech (think Alex Jones and Andrew Anglin, operator of the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer), has had a tough time securing a cryptocurrency payment processor after getting deplatformed by the likes of PayPal and Stripe. But it’s finally found a hospitable service.

Gab made it into headlines after one of the platform’s users, Robert Bowers, murdered 11 congregants at the Tree of Life/Or L’Simcha synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27. Just before committing the mass shooting, Bowers had written a threatening message on Gab that singled out the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. The following media coverage brought awareness to the “free speech”-touting social platform, and the deplatforming began. Besides payment processors like PayPal and Stripe, web hosting services like GoDaddy and Joyent also refused to host the social network.
