In the wake of the Charlottesville attack, one Twitter Bot is taking matters of tracking down the neo-Nazis into its own hands. The bot, simply called ‘Neonazi BTC Tracker’ is publishing a tweet each time a Bitcoin transaction is posted to the wallets owned by known Neo Nazis.

The tweets include every transaction posted to the wallets, as well as detailed reports of each wallet balance.

The wallet referenced above has approximately $80,000 consistently, regardless of the amount being used.

The wallet belongs to the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website that was recently lost support from Cloudflare and GoDaddy and is struggling to survive.

The bot’s creator, John Bambenek, intends to publicly display how much money the white supremacist groups receive and spend by monitoring the wallets of some of the known participants. He said:

“I want to make it difficult for them to raise it, store it and spend it. We’re really focusing on disrupting their money flows.”

The bot brings to light recent discussions regarding just how anonymous Bitcoin transactions are, and whether users are at risk if their wallet addresses have become known.
