    I had literally just downloaded and was lurking through to see how this works aswell. I searched and found this app monitors your shit instead of the government so now we need to find a dark wallet?

    You should never pay directly from the app you by Bitcoin with. Read the Bitcoin and security section of meso.

    Coins was a pain to setup, and I only used it twice for small orders. I guess I'll try WU unless I find something better.

    Seems like WU and MG are the only ways to go for our side of the transactions

    Only if the receiver isn't flagged.

    For the record I did pay both orders by BTC using the app.

    Bitcoin is coming under heavier scrutiny these days.

    It's really not hard... You can do everything from a few clicks of your mouse while sitting in your sweatpants

    It's best to forward coin to the next wallet though, not good to only be using one wallet for everything.

    Aren't all wallets watched though?

    Absolutely. Coinbase in particular monitors and flags purchases deemed questionable. You need a "purchasing" wallet tied to anon email address.

    So I would delete the coin base all together then use.. breadwallet, then just buy bitcoins from private sellers?

    I use coinbase.. but I forward to two other wallets before I send to it's final destination. The process takes 5 minutes and coinbase is never sending to a questionable address.

    Even if I did send from a wallet that was being watched, it will have no money in it when it's shut down because it's only purpose is to forward funds, not hold them.
