Nobody has donated to Travis Patron's Bitcoin fund.

Patron has long billed himself as a Bitcoin expert, even writing a book on the digital currency. He is now the leader of the Canadian Nationalist Party, which was recently registered as an official party with Elections Canada. Despite that, not even a piece of a Bitcoin has come his way.

Even so, Patron and his far-right nationalist party — which promotes a variety of conspiratorial beliefs, and has appeared to organize supporters on the neo-Nazi forum Stormfront — is a clear sign of the challenges to come, thanks to the blockchain.
