Hamas military wing Al-Qassam Brigades published its bitcoin address announcing that the group was accepting donations.

The announcement came a day after an Al-Qassam Brigades’ spokesman revealed that the group would be using the cryptocurrency to combat Israel’s constraints on the group’s funding.

Both announcements were posted on the Al-Qassam Brigades’ Telegram channel. The address shows eight transactions with about $110 in funds received in bitcoin (BTC) and less than a dollar in bitcoin cash (BCH).

On Jan. 29, Hamas military wing Al-Qassam Brigades called on its supporters to send the group funds using Bitcoin. The announcement, which was posted on the Telegram channel of Al-Qassam Brigades’ spokesman Abu Ubaida, alluded that bitcoin will be a way to combat Israel’s crackdown on aid for the group.

The message read: “The Zionist enemy combats the resistance [i.e., Hamas] by attempting to stop the support [it receives] by any means, but the supporters of the resistance in the entire world are fighting these Zionist’s attempts and are seeking to find all possible means to support it. … We call upon all supporters of the resistance and aides of our just cause to support the resistance financially through Bitcoin using mechanisms that we will soon publish.”
