Horrific Holocaust ‘crypto currency’ that burns Jews and trades their ash is uncovered in latest manifestation of online antisemitism
A horrific Holocaust ‘crypto currency’ that burns Jews and trades their ash has been uncovered in what is just the latest – but particularly abhorrent – manifestation of online antisemitism.
The discovery was made by a member of the public, who referred it to Jewish Human Rights Watch, and it was analysed by the researcher David Collier.
The crypto-currency, called ‘Holocoin’, reportedly gives users the option to buy Jews “or let them burn”.
The website ‘burns’ Jews ‘at a rate of 4,107 each day’ (equivalent, the website claims, to the rate at which Jews were slaughtered in the Holocaust), and the ‘ash’ produced by this process can also be purchased.
There have apparently been hundreds of ‘trades’, and there are over 200 accounts holding the currency. The two founders reportedly use the names ‘Smaug Hitler’ and ‘30YearOldHimmler’.
Absurd suggestions that the crypto-currency was designed as an educational tool are belied by comments made by its founders, as well as its appalling taste.
Campaign Against Antisemitism calls for any self-respecting server operator to remove this antisemitic filth immediately.
