Over the past few years the word “Bitcoin” has started to appear more in the mainstream and one of the most common questions is are there any VPN providers that accept Bitcoin?
For those of you who are unaware, Bitcoin is a digital currency brought in to public existence in 2009. It is not issued by any central bank and currently unregulated by government. The cryptocurrency has been growing in popularity and one of the benefits of the payment system is the pseudo-anonymity that it provides. Couple this with VPN use and the benefits of both systems in conjunction with each other become clear.
As we search for ever more privacy and anonymity with the use of a VPN service this thought process can be extended by paying using a system that is seen to be more private than such payment types like Paypal, Credit Cards etc. As these types are systems are all linked to your real world identity. With the possibility of paying using Bitcoin we introduce the added benefit of a more anonymous payment type with the anonymity of a VPN service thus greater reducing the need to provide payment details that are linked to your personal information.
For those of you who are interested in signing up to a VPN service that accepts Bitcoin we have compiled a list of providers that it is currently accepted at.
