After the co-owner of the Atilis Gym in New Jersey appeared on TV and told the public that the state had seized over $ 173k from the gym owner’s bank account, Ian Smith revealed that Atilis Gym has now set up a crypto wallet . Smith explained that a number of people did not want to donate using the Gofundme platform, so peer-to-peer electronic money supporters have made a proposal on the non-consent fundraising app, Flipstarter, so that people can donate bitcoin cash to the legal efforts of the gym owner.
Uncensored money lawyers help Atilis Gym owners
Recently, news.Bitcoin.com reported at the Atilis Gym in New Jersey, owned by Ian Smith and his business partner, Frank Trumbetti. Last week, Smith told the audience that New Jersey (NJ) Governor Philip Murphy confiscated the gym’s legal resources during the gym’s owner’s appeal process. The state took $ 173,613.60, according to Smith, and the co-owner of Atilis Gym appeared on Fox News along with Tucker Carlson to tell his story.
During Smith’s talk with Tucker, the two discussed accepting cryptocurrencies so that the gym owners could protect themselves from another form of asset seizure. The Atilis Gym co-owner told Tucker that setting up a cryptocurrency account was a frequent recommendation.
After the story, the founder of Bitcoin.com Roger Ver shared a video on Twitter explaining what happened to the legal defense funds of the owner of the Atilis Gym. Explained far further in his tweet:
It is time for the world to switch from censored banks and Gofundme to uncensored peer-to-peer electronic money and Flipstartercash.
In addition, Ver shared one Flipstarter fundraising link with the video called the “Atilis Gym Patriots Bitcoin Cash Fundraiser.” The Flipstarter fundraiser aims for an increase of about 42 BCH or more than $ 20k with the current BCH exchange rates. At the time of publishing, the Atilis Gym Flipstarter has fetched 24.96 BCH or just over $ 12k so far.
‘People take care of each other much better than a large government’
The co-owner of Atilis Gym also tweeted about his company’s help BCH advocates who want to help the gym.
These guys are incredible. They heard about the illegal asset seizure and helped Atilis Gym set up a crypto wallet and started a fundraiser for us. To show once again that people can take care of each other much better than the large government.
In another tweetThe co-owner of Atilis Gym said that “a number of people who wanted to donate to our cause did not want to use the banks or Gofundme.” So @be_cashy set us up with a cryptocurrency-based fundraiser. Big shout out to these guys, ”Smith added. A number of BCH supporters were delighted to hear that Atilis Gym is being set up with a crypto account and a fundraising campaign on Flipstarter.
“If you keep your money in bitcoin cash, they can’t steal it,” says the BCH supporter of David Bond wrote to Smith on Twitter. You can spend it on gift cards or on Purse.io – offer to pay your attorney in Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin is freedom money, ”he added.
The fundraiser creator on Flipstarter explains why the donation portal was created because it has a dual purpose. “After reading about the unfair treatment of Atilis Gym and the seizure of their funds by public companies, we decided to do something about it,” said the Atilis Gym fundraiser on Flipstarter. ‘We collect money for Atilis. Rather than fiat money that can be seized by unexplained tyrants, we’re talking non-confiscable bitcoin cash. “
Flipstarter’s description further states:
We hope this fundraiser has a dual purpose. Firstly, to assist the brave heroes at Atilis who stand up against unconstitutional and unscientific lockdowns, and secondly, to raise awareness about cryptocurrency. It’s time people all over dropped the bank and took control of their own money. 100% of the money raised goes to Atilis.
Individuals can also see a variety of individuals who have already donated to the Atilis BCH fund on Flipstarter. One person, the BCH supporter, Marc De Mesel, donated a whopping 20.50 BCH to the cause and legal costs of the Atilis Gym.
“I admire gym boys,” De Mesel wrote after a donation. “Encourage to refuse masks and revolt against the police,” the investor added.
