Big Brother is Watching You

If CISPA or other privacy-busting legislations pass, every detail of our personal lives will be at risk – and you’ll want to buy Bitcoins for safety. 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!

Update: The following is an antiquated method to buy bitcoins anonymously. Currently, the best way to buy bitcoins anonymously is still to use a VPN or Tor and use a service like described by the anonymous member of the Bitcoin community below.

    hello friend join the discussion and Get BLANK ATM Programmed Card and cash money directly in any ATM Machine around you. There is no risk of being caught, because the card has been programmed in such a way that it’s not traceable, it also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTV to detect you and you can only withdraw a total amount of 5,000.00 USD in a day. Now email us today @ our E-mail address at: blankatmcardmachine@gmail.com

    Bitcoin ATMs show some potential, but for the ones I’ve tried, a passport scan is required and you also have to add in biometrics like a palm or iris scan which seems a bit invasive to me. I just use Bitcoin Gift Card (.org) to buy BTC and pay by Paypal. It takes a few days for the BTC gift cards to arrive through the mail, but otherwise works great.
