Choppers and Dlive – Warning!
After Justin Sun aquired Dlive, you may be aware that LINO was replaced with BTT coin. BTT = TRON aka “The new bitcoin of China”. You can read about this in the links below:

I have been warning Choppers about this ever since, but no one seems to take heed to it. While I did support use of Dlive in the earlier stages when Charles Wayn was CEO, I’ve been very wary of Justin Sun’s take over. Do a simple search and you’ll find shenanigans yourselves. We saw the demonetization and censorship immediately taking place ever since the acquisition, and it’s only a matter of time before they also permanently remove Axe from their platform. Donations are always appreciated, but please be aware of who takes a percentage of it. When you buy those lemons, ice cream and etc on Dlive, you are no longer buying LINO but buying BTT which contributes to TRON/TRX.
Entropy, Odysee, Foxhole/Pilled
We implemented entropy (donate.axetruth.com) earlier this year to avoid the use of Dlive donations. Please take advantage of this option as it does support alternate payment processors.
We encourage the use of donate.axetruth.com if you do not wish to enter your credit card information directly. There is also the option of sending donations direct via snail mail. Entropy uses google pay which supports paypal but you don’t need to use paypal either. If you are an Android user, most likely you already use google pay for the app store. Although it is Google, you can go to the grocery store and buy a google play card to enter funds or if you already have PayPal connected to your google account, you can pay using that option.
Besides Entropy, you can use Odysee (they are now accepting USD to send donations in addition to the original option of LBRY coin/LBC) or Foxhole/Pilled.net to donate to Axe anytime even when he is not streaming there. Axe does receive offline donations from Odysee from replays as well.
Live streaming platforms that support free speech deserve the cut that is taken because they are run by individuals/groups that have to maintain the service and keep it running out of their own pockets. By using the big platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Periscope etc and donating through them, you are actually helping the same platforms that have been punishing Axe. Please think about that and which economy your money is stimulating. Also think about helping the people who kindly offered to platform Axe like Foxhole/Pilled.net.
Edit: 09/25 – I just would like to add that there has been a few Choppers who have mentioned that they just don’t want to make yet ANOTHER account. Please do not be lazy! Not too long ago, before social media introduced a one login option called “social login” (google, twitter, facebook, amazon, etc), we were always registering accounts separately. Things have just gotten to where social media has made everyone lazy. They now control access to your accounts outside of their own domain because it “makes things easier for you”. Gradually, you have been introduced to logging into one account and never having to use another log in again. Try not to use social login to register or log in to accounts! If you lose that main social login account, you lose access to all of the accounts that you connected it to, unless it gives you an extra option to login with your email as well. Dlive uses social login, twitch does this, even Entropy does this. Use an email address and a password when you can!
In addition to this post: At this time of writing (5/2022), the percentage taken from Dlive is now 25% since Axe is not a verified partner (and they will not verify at this point). I do not recommend Dlive at all and I urge choppers to refrain from giving money to them at all at this point. Fuck Dlive.
Odysee is a great platform to use for cash donations to Axe. They have since made a lot of improvements since their debut for livestreaming as well, so I suggest anyone who had problems previously to try using it again. They only take 5% out of the donation. Rumble takes 20% out of the donation despite Axe already paying to stream on their platform. I don’t recall what the percentage taken from donations on Foxhole but I’m sure it’s less than Rumble as well. Odysee and Foxhole do not charge Axe for using their service and I would recommend those two as they are self funded and deserve the % taken out to run their services.
