PayPal Shut Down GrapheneOS Foundation’s Account Used For Donations

“Unfortunately, PayPal permanently locked our GrapheneOS Foundation account today,” said the organization.”No reason has been provided for the account being locked. All we’ve done is accept donations.”“We added our bank account information yesterday in order to begin withdrawing money and it was locked.””GrapheneOS Foundation is a non-profit organization incorporated federally in Canada. PayPal required us to provide both proof of identity and address for each director along with other documents, etc. to have our account approved.””We believe our account was shut down because we accept cryptocurrency donations including via Monero. PayPal partially locked our account and demanded proof for source / purpose of each transaction. We provided a link to https://grapheneos.org/donate. Our account was then force closed.””We received CA$3,950.75 [~USD$3,000] of donations through it.”
