On the official account Gab.com Twitter appeared information that the company removed the trading account of the founder of the social network Gab Andrew Torba.

Gab itself has positioned itself as a social network, advocating for «freedom of speech, personal integrity and free circulation of information on the Internet».

As reported by Cointelegraph in April, Coinbase is also the account of the nonprofit organization WikiLeaks, for alleged violation of terms of service.

Presumably, this would allow to circumvent the so-called financial blockade imposed by governments.

In December last year, a major American magazine Time reported on the liberal potential , assuming that the coin provides the financial flows in the bypass oppressive governments.
