The organizer of ‘Stop the Steal’ hosts Clubhouse Sessions about Bitcoin.
Ali Alexander, the organizer of the ‘Stop the Steal’ movement that claimed that Donald Trump actually won the 2020 presidential election, had implied that he is effectively in hiding since the January 6 US Capitol attack, which he allegedly helped planned.

A bitcoin address linked to Alexander in 2017 through his Twitter account has not been used since September 2020.
