The job also includes travel abroad.

Hamas falls under crypto raid

A lot of the Israeli state’s recent crypto-related business has been focused on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies’ popularity with the militant wing of Hamas. As they are classified by Israel as a terrorist organisation, it is logical that they are trying to fight its financial isolation by using cryptocurrencies for their fundraising campaigns on social media.

Recently, Israeli defense minister Benny Ganz signed an order enabling Israel’s National Bureau for Counter Terror Financing to seize cryptocurrency accounts connected to Hamas’ militant wing after the organisation had allegedly accelerated its crypto fundraising efforts, raising approximately 3,370 BTC during a four-year period.

A total of 84 crypto addresses considered to be linked with Hamas were confiscated.

Analysis revealed that the Islamic terrorist group used also other cryptocurrencies including Tether, Ethereum and Dogecoin, with wallets in receipt of more than $7.7 million in crypto assets.
