Most VPN providers will offer customers various forms to pay for their VPN services. While in general most customers are happy paying for a VPN using a credit card or PayPal, the users who value financial anonymity would seek to deal their payments in cryptocurrencies.
One of the most popular cryptocurrencies for payment with extra security is Bitcoin.
VPN subscribers are often users who are seeking anonymity on the web, and sometimes prefer to keep their payments for their VPN anonymous. However, using a credit card or PayPal leaves one in the position whereby your personal information such as your full name, email and billing address are all stored by the payment processing company and linked to your VPN subscription and could be traced back to you personally.
Your transaction history using credit cards and PayPal could be shared among parties such as banks, governments, tax authorities, third-party payment processors and just about anyone with the authority to do so.
If you have chosen your VPN on the basis of maximum anonymity (Read: 6 Types of VPN Users), and wish to add an extra layer of security by paying for your VPN in a safer method, here’s why BolehVPN encourages your VPN payments in Bitcoins.
Bitcoin + VPNs go hand-in-hand for anyone who seeks a more anonymous and overall private dealing with their VPNs. Of course, additional privacy is never a bad thing and at BolehVPN we too offer for our users to subscribe our service with Bitcoins and other forms of cryptocurrencies such as Dash and ZCoin.
