TelegramfounderPavel Durovsaid Tuesday that he has been paying network administrators in bitcoin to bypass a government ban on his popular messaging platform.
Internet censors at Roskomnadzor, Russia's telecommunications watchdog, have blocked at least 16 million IP addresses as they tried to implement a court order issued last Friday to ban Telegram. Telegram uses both Google and Amazon's services to provide its service to users. "But the Russians were just getting started... a further 1,048,574 IP addresses belonging to Google were also targeted Monday".
Roskomnadzor had previously asked a Russian court to block the service for failing to comply with Russian regulations.
In 2016, the powerful agency teamed up with the Kremlin to push through a new terrorism law that grants security officials sweeping backdoor access to encryptedapps like Telegram.
Durov has suggested Telegram users will find ways around a ban.
