After the co-owner of the Atilis Gym in New Jersey appeared on TV and told the public the state confiscated over $173k from the gym owner's bank account, Ian Smith revealed Atilis Gym has now set up a crypto wallet. Smith explained that a number of people didn't want to donate using the Gofundme platform, so peer-to-peer electronic cash supporters created a proposal on the permissionless fundraising application, Flipstarter, so people can donate bitcoin cash toward the gym owner's legal efforts.
