Tate founded Hustler’s University 2.0, a platform where members paid a $49.99 monthly membership fee to receive lessons and support on how to make money online, such as cryptocurrency, copywriting, and e-commerce. The course was supported by pre-recorded videos, AMAs, and a Discord Community run by multimillionaires from his War Room society.
The website had an affiliate marketing program in which users earned a 50% commission for promoting HU 2.0 on social media networks. Hustler’s University had over 100,000 members in August 2022. The first Matrix attack occurred in the same month. Stripe stopped processing memberships for the portal, and Hustler’s University had to shut down its affiliate marketing program for several weeks to find another payment processor company.
After Andrew Tate’s ban on all social media platforms and various Matrix attacks on HU 2.0, Tate and his team decided to transform Hustler’s University 2.0 into an independent platform with its own bank, servers, and payment processor. Tate launched a rebranded version of the program called “The Real World” in October 2022. To the current day (Feb. 2023) The Real World has over 230,000 active members.
Andrew Tate also leads a private network called “The War Room” which is described as a “global network in which exemplars of individualism work to free the modern man from socially induced incarceration.”
Tate’s Twitter accounts have been suspended at different times. Tate was permanently banned from Facebook and Instagram in August 2022, following a Matrix attack to deplatform and silence him, losing 4.7 million followers that followed his accounts. Parent firm Meta stated he had broken their policy on “dangerous organizations and individuals”. TikTok, where videos containing Tate’s name as a hashtag have been seen over 13 billion times, also suspended his account after concluding that it violated their policy on “content that attacks, threatens, incites violence against, or otherwise dehumanizes an individual or a group”. Immediately after, YouTube suspended his channel for a variety of “violations”, including “hate speech” and “COVID-19 disinformation”.
In response to the bans, Andrew Tate said that, while most of his statements were taken out of context, he took full responsibility for how they were understood. Tate’s content continued to spread via fan accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, and TikTok. After the bans, Tate migrated to the alternative media platforms Gettr and Rumble, making Rumble temporarily the top downloaded app on the App Store.
