Digital currency donations for Freedom Convoy evading seizure by authorities

CBC Ottawa interviewed Monique Jilesen comments on our recent Mareva injunction freezing the funds donated to the Freedom Convoy protest and status of the digital currency.


Monique Jilesen, a lawyer with Lenczner Slaght who is involved in the civil case against the protest organizers, said as digital currency moves from wallet to wallet, it gets harder to track but remains traceable. 

"I presume, although I don't know, in part that was done in order to distribute the wallets … they've taken one big wallet, moved it into hundreds of smaller wallets, and then they hand the passwords to that smaller wallet to the ultimate recipient," she said.
