One man’s journey from anarchist bitcoin coder to anti-ISIS rebel

In 2015, Amir Taaki, an Iranian-British coder notorious in the politically-loaded cryptography software and bitcoin, found himself holding an AK-47 in Syria fighting ISIS alongside Kurdish rebels.

Taaki had for years preached a crypto-anarchist revolution online. But then he found there was a very real revolution occurring in Syria.

In this timeline, we explore how Taaki went from coding bitcoins to firing bullets.
