It looks like a regular video-streaming site. It's fundraising for white supremacists, report says
The online video-storage and live streaming platform Odysee has become a haven for extremists, who are using the site’s cryptocurrency-based revenue system to rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars, researchers at the Southern Poverty Law Center found in a new report shared exclusively with USA TODAY.
The SPLC’s inaugural Digital Threat Report , released publicly today, focuses on the video streaming website, which launched in 2020.The report is the first in a series of investigations of technology platforms that have been co-opted by extremists, which will be released in coming months by the SPLC’s Intelligence Project.
The goal is to create a knowledge base about so-called “alt-tech” websites popular with extremists, and inform website users, parents and investors about the way the sites are being used. The effort is similar to the SPLC’s Extremist Files, which have long provided a catalog of information and data about extremist groups and individuals across the country, said Megan Squire, SPLC’s Deputy Director for Data Analytics.
“What I really wanted to do was focus on the tech and the platforms that are slipping by — they’re enabling extremism and fundraising, but people may not be aware of what they’re doing,” Squire said. “Say you see Odysee.com on your kid’s browser history — it just looks like a video sharing website — you don’t realize that at any given moment they’re two clicks away from actual Nazi propaganda.”
Odysee did not respond to requests for comment. A request directly to one of the site’s founders drew no response.
What is Odysee?
Odysee is a video-sharing platform similar to YouTube, created as a subsidiary of the file-sharing site LBRY.com . It was founded by a group of Silicon Valley cryptocurrency enthusiasts including LBRY’s former CEO Jeremy Kauffman, according to the SPLC report.
While the site’s interface is similar to YouTube’s, Odysee uses blockchain technology to host its videos instead of centralized servers controlled by one company, according to a 2021 report by the Global Network on Extremism & Technology.
The site says this makes videos “censorship resistant,” since the files are not owned, held or controlled by a centralized company. In a 2019 blog post , Kauffman described LBRY as “ the most censorship-resistant system to ever exist.”
White supremacists and other extremists flocked to the platform to spread propaganda and hateful messaging, SPLC researchers found.
In 2021, Odysee was spun off from LBRY, Inc. which ran afoul of the Securities and Exchange Commission for selling assets to investors but failing to file a registration statement with the agency. The SEC sued LBRY Inc., eventually winning a judgment worth more than $111,000 against the company in July.
But Odysee continues to function, and SPLC researchers found extremists have made a lot of money on the platform.
Extremists rake in cryptocurrency, and real dollars, on Odysee
When it comes to tracking extremists, Squire said she has long been interested in the old adage to “follow the money.” On Odysee, her team tracked months worth of donations to known extremists worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“Odysee is also unique in the way it allows monetization of content through the use of a cryptocurrency called LBRY Credits (LBC),” the SPLC report states. “Content creators can receive payments in LBC based on such engagement metrics as the number of views their content has received.”
Those LBC could can then be converted into US dollars, and Odysee users could can also collect direct donations from followers who subscribe to their videos, or by collecting one-time tips called “Hyperchat donations,” the report says.
Squire’s team collected publicly posted information from 165 extremist channels from April 24, 2021 to Aug. 31 2023. The researchers concluded 113 of the channels received at least one Hyperchat donation, and calculated that, combined, the channels raised $336,000 on the platform.
Among the biggest beneficiaries were a channel run by the author of a neo-fascist novel who also produced a film that promotes Great Replacement and White Genocide conspiracy theories and a channel run by one of the principals of a white supremacist podcast network, the SPLC report says.
About two months after the timeframe examined by the SPLC, LBRY Inc. announced in a blog post that it was shutting down, citing the SEC ruling and “millions of dollars in debts.”
Extremists and 'Alt-tech'
Jared Holt, a senior researcher at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue who studies extremist groups, said extremists are often among the first people to flock to a new tech platform, especially if it offers new ways to evade censorship and spread hateful propaganda.
“Technology evolves very quickly, and extremists have always been early adopters of emergent technologies,” Holt said. “Recently, that has included products and services that are often called ‘Web 3’ — things like cryptocurrency, different blockchain technology and ways of hosting content.”
As platforms have grown and developed, extremists often get pushed out by stricter content moderation, Holt said.
But with Odysee, that hasn’t happened.
The Odysee report is the SPLC’s inaugural Digital Threat Report, and will be followed by similar papers outlining different platforms’ roles in the world of online hate, Squire said.
She said her team specifically aims to shine a light on websites that have become “havens” for extremists and whether extremists are being “enabled” by the companies or individuals running the site.
A former computer science professor, Squire has been scraping data on extremist groups and individual extremists for years, and she said she plans to bring the same data-driven approach to the Digital Threat Reports.
Holt welcomed the effort.
“Some of these sites succeed, some of them fail, but there’s always new ones popping up,” Holt said. ”Staying on top of those is invaluable.”

Only viable option
Conservative Report makes all other Drudge readers obsolete. I’ve been a beta tester for over a year and it has been amazing to watch this app get better and better with each release. And Vijay has been incredibly responsive in fixing the few bugs I found along the way. If you are using another reader, stop beating your head against the wall and step into this app’s clean and simple presentation.
Gone gone and done
Since Matt sold one of the most read websites in the world and apparently the editorial staff and proofreaders left with him. The new owners are the ad agency that sold advertising for the Drudge Report but know little about maintaining editorial quality. Nobody there proofs or edits the comments section. That section is an abysmal display of offensive comments that are machine produced neo Nazi comments that have little or no value to the stories being posted, The staff’s story selections are not really stories but thematically inconsistent that contradict the stories ahead or behind. This is what happens when ad agencies oversee the editorial department or what’s left of it. The current Drudge Report is only a splinter of itself. Shame on Matt for selling out to to a bidder who knows nothing about quality journalism and tearing down versus building up the property. I hardly read it anymore and DR is never cited.
Problems with IOS version 1.70.2 update
The comments button opens a new window. Comments load OK, but closing the window is difficult. You have to scroll back to the very top of the comments window again in order to be able to close it. It needs something like a left-swipe to be able to close it from any part of the comments that you are reading, not just when at the top.

Torey Lovullo extension: NL champion Diamondbacks sign manager to new deal through 2026, per report
Lovullo helped the d-backs go from 110 losses in 2021 to the world series in 2023.
The National League champion Arizona Diamondbacks have signed manager Torey Lovullo to a contract extension through the 2026 season, reports the Arizona Republic . The team has not yet confirmed the extension. Lovullo was already under contract for 2024, so the new extension adds two years to his deal.
"It's great to have the long-term contracts, right? Everybody wants that," Lovullo told the Arizona Republic in June . "Do I deserve that? I don't know. I don't know. I feel like I've got to prove myself every single day to people. That's how I was raised. You honor what they give you and then at the end of the day, if they want you back, then you honor that too."
Lovullo, 58, joined the D-backs in Nov. 2016 and they are his only full-time MLB managerial job. Arizona has gone 495-537 (.480) during Lovullo's seven seasons, though several of those seasons were rebuilding years. The D-backs reached the postseason as a wild-card team in 2017 and again in 2023, when they made a Cinderella run to the World Series.
The D-backs lost 110 games as recently as 2021. Thanks to Lovullo's leadership, as well as an infusion of young talent like Corbin Carroll and Gabriel Moreno , Arizona won 84 games in 2023 and qualified for the postseason. They upset the Milwaukee Brewers , Los Angeles Dodgers , and Philadelphia Phillies before falling to the Texas Rangers in the Fall Classic.
Prior to joining the D-backs, Lovullo worked as Toronto Blue Jays first base coach (2011-12) and Boston Red Sox bench coach (2013-16). He served as Boston's interim manager for the final seven weeks of the 2015 season, when manager John Farrell stepped away from the team to receive treatment for lymphoma.
With Craig Counsell leaving the Brewers for the Chicago Cubs , Lovullo is the third longest-tenured manager in the National League. Only Dave Roberts (Los Angeles Dodgers) and Brian Snitker ( Atlanta Braves ) have been at the helm longer, and Snitker was hired only a few months prior to Lovullo.

Stock Market News, Nov. 3, 2023: U.S. Indexes Log Best Week of 2023 After Jobs Report
Treasury yields retreat; apple stock slips after weak sales guidance.
Bad news about the labor market was good news for stocks Friday. All three major U.S. indexes climbed, helping them to their best weeks of the year. Read the day's full markets roundup here .
One reason: The latest jobs report showed hiring slowed . The U.S. added 150,000 jobs in October, below economists' projections, while the unemployment rate was slightly higher than expected.
That's a sign that the economy is cooling. For investors, that suggests the Fed might stop raising interest rates. Bond yields tumbled after the report.
Apple, the stock market's most-valuable company, disappointed investors with an anemic growth outlook after the bell yesterday. Its shares fell.
The broad S&P 500 rose nearly 6% this week. The Dow had its best week since October 2022. Government bonds rallied, sending yields lower.
As of Friday's close:
Stocks rose. The S&P 500, Dow industrials and Nasdaq Composite all moved higher. The Nasdaq was up more than 1%. The Dow added 222 points.
Treasury yields fell. The yield on the benchmark 10-year note ended the week at 4.557%, its lowest settle since September.
Shares of Block, the fintech company, were among the day's big gainers . The company lifted its outlook and posted a narrower-than-expected quarterly loss.
Bitcoin fell . FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was convicted of fraud Thursday and crypto exchange Coinbase Global reported a seventh quarter of losses.
Oil prices declined. Front-month Brent crude settled lower Friday, finishing the week at just below $85 a barrel.
