Researchers in the economy and the digital currency said the military wing of Hamas is increasingly using complex methods to raise money through a composition currency. According to a study by a number of researchers, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades called on its supporters to donate digital currency in a campaign announced on the Internet at the end of January.
Initially, donors were asked to send configuration to a single digital address or portfolio. However, Elbitech, the industry leader in cluster analysis, has revealed that Hamas' military wing has changed this mechanism in recent weeks, with its website creating a new digital portfolio for each transaction.
The research revealed that between March 26 and April 16, 0.6 million dollars worth of about $ 3,300 were sent to a governor created by the site.
Overall, the company says the four-month donation has raised about $ 7,400. A spokesman for Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip since 2007, declined to comment on the search.
That money is a small part of annual funding worth tens of millions of dollars that Israel and the United States say Hamas receives from Iran.
"They're still in a pilot phase, trying to see how much they'll raise money, and if it's going to work," said co-founder Tom Robinson.
