Anatel complied with a court order issued in São Paulo to terminate the operations of the Blaze platform.
Now, the betting company seeks to circumvent this measure by sharing alternative URLs on Twitter, allowing its customers to continue using its services.
Blaze does not address judicial blocking, it only guides users with access difficulties to use alternative addresses, called “mirror sites”, intended to help players with connection problems.
Is Blaze off-line?
The National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) responded to a request by the Justice of São Paulo to suspend the operation of Blaze throughout the Brazilian territory on Monday, the 4th.
According to the documentation signed by Marcelo Alves da Silva, Superintendent of Inspection at Anatel, Blaze’s online platform must be blocked immediately.
Anatel explained that it does not have the power to remove a site from the air, but only sends the court order to the internet operators, responsible for implementing the measure.
The site has been the target of numerous accusations throughout Brazil.
In July, the case of residents of Belo Horizonte who claimed to have suffered losses of BRL 6 million after being persuaded by an influencer to “invest” in the Blaze platform was restored.
One of the victims invested money in hopes of paying for her son’s treatment.
In addition, Blaze is under investigation by the Financial Pyramids CPI (or Cryptoassets CPI), which summoned the presidents of Santos and Atlético Goianiense, teams sponsored by Blaze, to testify.
Andres Rueda, leader of the São Paulo team, confirmed a two-year contract worth BRL 45 million, with BRL 25 million paid in cash and the remainder divided into 23 installments, noting that payments have been made regularly.
