    How to Buy Bitcoins Anonymously in the US, Ins

    Big Brother is Watching You

    If CISPA or other privacy-busting legislations pass, every detail of our personal lives will be at risk. Although many of our foundations are rooted in anonymity, everything we see, do and buy may soon be exposed. However, technology always evolves, and anonymity is no exception.

    As many already know, Bitcoin is a decentralized, digital currency that can be used like cash. What many people may not already know, however, is that there is no need to hand over all of your information to an exchange to buy bitcoins. It’s already incredibly easy to buy bitcoins anonymously, in less than 10 minutes!

    An anonymous member of the Bitcoin community has contributed these wonderful instructions detailing 6 simple steps to buying Bitcoins with near anonymity in the US.

    Now this sounds promising. Figured cash deposit would be the only way to go, barring lbc face to face.

    Any word on the t/a? I can't get on TOR network with this device, but am eager to check this out further later.

    Thanks PI22.

    Bitinstant closed doors after Charlie Shrem was charged. Closest that I know of is but then you'll need a valid phone number for the text they require.

    Didn't they regulate burners though? Thought info was required for phone numbers now. Could be wrong though, haven't needed one of those in a while. . .

    Can you just use your real name and phone number to buy the coins and then send them to a second wallet that is anonymous ?

    Buying bitcoin anonymously and spending bitcoin anonymously are two different things. The importance and requirement of each depends on the individual.

    4 Surprising Ways to Get Bitcoins Anonymously

    Share and Get bitcoin
    When asked about ways to get bitcoins anonymously, many users would likely already know about services like LocalBitcoins. Similarly, the site Wall of Coins offers sellers (though not buyers) similar privacy for their transactions.

    There are more than two ways to skin the anonymity cat, however.

    Throw goods and services into the mix, and you can find at least four additional ways to privately get your hands on BitcoinCT r: 3 (provided you create your accounts with a “burner” email address or one simply unassociated with you):

    This escrow service cropped up in early 2014 to connect people who wanted to spend bitcoins onAmazon products to buyers who wanted to purchase those bitcoins. At its core, it's a simple Bitcoin exchange, but one that incorporates Amazon Wish Lists as their vehicle. The Wish List protects the shopper's shipping address from view of the bidders.

    Because bidders are willing to pay a premium to maintain their privacy, shoppers on Purse get a minimum of 8 % off their first Amazon order. After each purchase is completed, Purse allows shoppers to ask for higher and higher discount rates – up to 50 %.

    Roger Ver recently raved that he got 29 % off a new iPad using Purse's service.


    2. Brawker
    Hong Kong-based Brawker (pronounced “broker”) offers a similar service to Purse, but they don't limit purchases to Amazon's offerings. If it's available to buy anywhere online, Brawker will facilitate the order. The shopper once again gets to set his or her own discount rate (most frequently 10 %).

    Brawker also sets an additional step for shoppers – whereas Purse automatically selects the first bidder to take the deal, Brawker lets multiple bidders make offers. The shopper then selects from among them.

    Brawker's site makes note that though any product can be purchased through their service, the best way to protect the shopper's shipping address is to use an Amazon Wish List.


    3. Gliph Marketplace
    This encrypted messaging service recently launched an internal marketplace, where users can buy and sell products from one another for Bitcoin or fiat currencies. Users can connect either or CoinbaseCT r: 1 wallet to their pseudonymous account.

    Once you've claimed a permanent username, you can upload your products to the Marketplace and set your accepted payment methods.

    It should be noted that Gliph's privacy policy states that users must enable “Password Lockdown” in their account settings to ensure that their messages can never be decrypted by Gliph staff members.


    4. WatchMyBit
    Setting out to be an ad-free YouTube, WatchMyBit is a video platform that allows content creators to set a Bitcoin micropayment per view for their videos.

    Videos can be marked as “free,” or charge pay-per-view amounts like 9, 16, or 20 US cents. Content creators get to keep 75 % of all bitcoins earned by their videos.

    Payments can be sent to multiple Bitcoin addresses, removing the need for one person to act as trusted payroll manager for content created by multiple individuals.


    Closing the Loop
    Many look forward to the day when the “crypto loop” will be closed – that is, the day when people no longer need to convert fiat to crypto and vice versa – the day that those who use bitcoins get paid in them and spend them directly.

    The above services certainly offer a step towards closing the loop for good.

    Do you know of any other ways to buy bitcoins anonymously that aren't menti

    Maybe bitcoin should become the universal currency of the world...fuck exchange rates! Also BTC should be treated just like any other currency.

    Lol, where's the fun in that?

    Then we'd have to move to a new cryptocurrency with an even more volatile market :(

    Don't worry, the assholes of the world are working tirelessly to see that vision come true.

    Actually, it would be lots of fun if the whole world converted to bitcoin as a universal currency. It would mean that the price of one bitcoin, which is currently trading just above $300, would trade at about $10,000,000 each given that there will only be around 21 million bitcoin in existence.

    Guess that's because there's a finite number of bitcoin out there. One way to bring that down to a reasonable value as well as having enough bitcoin out there for the entire world would be to increase the number of bitcoin. Bet that's easier said than done.
  18. Millard Baker

    Millard Baker Member

    It can't be done. There's more than enough for everyone because it's infinitely divisible and, as the universal currency, everyone would spend it.
