How To Pay Anonymously Online - GreyCoder
Which of these buying options is best for maintaining anonymity?
I want to make my first bitcoin purchase and have been trying to do my own research but would like to confirm with those more knowledgeable and experienced than me regarding remaining anonymous. Here are a few of the ways I understand that you can remain anonymous, either completely or at the very least the end wallet being used to purchase things with BTC.
I buy from a BTC ATM. The ATM I would use requires sms verification so I'd have to either:
1.A - Buy a prepaid phone so my normal phone number and therefor name aren't attached to the transaction. Downside to this would seem to be the markup fee, the time spent physically going to do this, and that it would probably make sense not to take my normal phone with me otherwise it could show i was at that location at the time the machine was used. 1.B - Buy it using my normal phone number and then use a mixecoinjoin to transfer it to a different electrum wallet that uses a tor proxy to keep my IP hidden. Downside again is the markup fee, the time spent, and the additional cost of mixing the coins.
Buy from P2P marketplace by either:
2.A - Cash through the mail. Downsides seem to be markup fee, potential of cash being lost in the mail, or the person taking the money and not giving the BTC. 2.B - Bank Deposit. Downside again the markup fee, the person taking the money not giving BTC, but also it seems like more banks require ID even to deposit cash into someone else's account so might not be anonymous anyways unless I then mix into a different wallet. 3 - Buy from a normal exchange using a credit/debit card or bank account and then use mixecoinjoin to transfer it into a different wallet. I'm not really familiar with how much it costs or how complicated it is to do a mixecoinjoin type thing. The markup fees for the others seem to typically be in the 7-15% range. So if mixing is relatively cheap it seems like avoiding the markup by buying directly from an exchange and then mixing would be better value while still maintaining end wallet anonymity. Is this more or less accurate? Opinions from those more knowledgeable would be awesome. Thanks for your help!
Basics for how to do carding Points we will go through: - What is carding? - What are the factors relates to carding? - How it’s done - the process itself. - Precautionary measures Carder should take. Overview: Nowadays, if we see the credit card fraud trend, it is being increased day by day and new techniques being discovered to hack the credit card info and use it for malicious purpose so it's a good growing business. As everything goes cashless, the use of a credit card will be necessary for everyone. There are so many ways to get the credit card details available on the internet through Darknet sites as well as on TOR sites (Data Leak .etc.). As we can see on social media sites and groups, most of the carders provide the offers which are collected from Online Sites, offline stores etc. and groups for your reference: Be aware that you should never contact a ripper. A Ripper is a fraud who takes the money and never deliver the product. Bad ways are: Facebook and WhatsApp groups Let’s start with the basics.
Introduction to Carding and Key Points:
There are multiple definitions available per different views. Carding itself is defined as the illegal use of the card (Credit/Debit) by unauthorized people (carder) to buy a product. 1.1 Key points in carding method. 2. Let start to understand each point one by one. 2.1 Computer (PC): For doing carding always use a computer. I know some methods using a mobile device, but it is less secure and involves more risk. 2.2 SOCKS: SOCKS stands for SOCKet Secure. It is internet protocol which allows client and server traffic pass through a proxy server, so real IP is getting hidden and proxy IP get reflected. This is useful while carding because carder wants to use the credit card holder’s location while doing it. Users can buy SOCKS. 2.3 Mac Address Changer and crypting: MAC stands for Media Access Control. It is the unique address of every Network Interface Card (NIC). A MAC address changer allows you to change the MAC address of NIC instantly. It is required to be anonymous and safe. Sure the best way is to have your computer encrypted - find some software to encrypt the PC. E.x. Best Crypt. Do not forget to fully turn off the PC while moving somewhere. 2.4 CCleaner: It is very useful tool help in cleaning your browsing history, cookies, temp files, etc. Many people ignore this part and get caught, so be careful and don’t forget to use it. 2.5 RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol): RDP allows one computer to connect to another computer within the network. It is protocol developed by Microsoft. Basically, carders use it to connect to computers of the geolocation of the person whose credit card carder want to use. It is used for safety and stay anon. Here carders using others’ PC for doing carding instead of their own. 2.6 DROP: DROP is an address which the carder uses for the shipping address in the carding process. Let me explain in details with an example: If I am carding with US credit card, then I use USA address as shipping address then my order will be shipped successfully, and I will be safe. If you have relatives/friends, then no problem, otherwise use sites who provide drop services only we have to pay extra for shipping it. 2.7 credit card (Credit Card): This part is very much important so read it carefully. Any credit card it is in the following format: | credit card Number | Exp Date | CVV2 code | Name on the Card | Address | City | State | Country | Zip code | Phone number (sometimes not included depending on where you get your credit card from)| e.g.: (randomly taken numbedetails) | 4305873969346315 | 05 | 2018 | 591 | UNITED STATES | John Mechanic | 201 Stone Wayne Lane | Easternton | MA | 01949 |
Types of Credit Card:
Every Credit card company starts their credit card number with a unique number to identify individually like shown below American Express (AMEX Card) – 3 Visa Card – 4 Master Card – 5 Discover (Disco) – 6 Company wise credit card details:
Classic: The Card is used worldwide in any locations designated by Visa, including ATMs, real and virtual Stores, and shops offering goods and services by mail and telephone. Gold – This card has a higher limit capacity. Most used card and adopted worldwide. Platinum – Card is having limits over $10,000. Signature – No preset spending limit – great bin to get Infinite – Most prestigious card with having virtually no limit. There is less in circulation so be alert when buying these. Use only with reputable sellers! Business – it can be used for small to medium sized businesses, usually has a limit. Corporate – it can be used with medium to large size businesses, having more limit than a Business card. Black – It has limited membership. It has no limit only having $500 annual fee, high-end card.
Standard – it is same as classic visa card. Gold – it is same as visa gold card. Platinum – it is same as visa platinum card World – it has a very high limit. World Elite – it is virtually no limit, high-end card.
Gold – it usually has around a 10k limit. Platinum- is usually has a higher limit (around 35k). Centurion – it has a High limit (75k+). It is also known as the black card, note: do not confuse with visa black card. Now we can start with some of the questionnaire and Basic concepts before start practical process of Carding. Q1. What is BIN? It is known as Bank Identification Number (BIN). It is a 6-digit number e.g.: 431408. Some of the reference sites which give BIN info which I also refer: www.bins.pro www.binlists.com www.exactbins.com Simply go to the site (www.bins.pro) enter BIN number and click on find to get the details. I have added first 4 digits only. You can filter out the option as per requirement shown below We got most of the information from the site. Now the question is how to know the balance of CC. is it possible? and answer is Yes, I will let you know step by step using normal as well as Skype method J Q2. What is the meaning of VBV, NON VBV and MSC? VBV (Verified by Visa) – Extra level protection is added by Visa to protect the Card from fraud. Like DOB, password, Social Security Number and Mother’s name, etc. also sending OTP (one-time password) as extra security level to card owner mobile number to validate the transaction. NON VBV (Verified by Visa) –Handy to use. No need extra information as specified in VBV card while doing the transaction. Note it down (IMP)- Carders mainly buy and use NON VBV cards for carding. MSC (MasterCard Secure Code) – security level same as VBV card. Q3. What is AVS? It stands for Address Verification System It is the system which is used to identify the credit card holder original address with billing address provided by the user while shopping or online transaction. The system is used to identify the online fraud over the internet. Q4. How to check credit card is live or dead? There are many sites available on the internet to verify credit card is live or dead, but they charge for it approx. $0.001 (price may vary). Also, 80% websites kill the credit card so never use it. There are tools also available on the internet to check the credit card status, but most of them are a backdoor or Trojan so prefer not to use it. As such there is no easy method to check it. Carder uses own ways to find it out. One of the ways is… Most carder go to Porn sites, buy a membership and confirm the credit card is live and proceed with carding. Q5. How to check the credit card is live or dead? (Skype Method) (Note: method is posted on March 16) Login into Skype account and call on Magic number +18005xx5633 (masked). You will connect to voice mail (lady’s voice). Start by entering the credit card number, and voice mail lady will stop automatically. After that enter Expiry date of a card like 01 16 (mm: yy format). If your credit card is live then voice mail lady will speak like “Thank you for calling, we really appreciate your business, since u are a 1st-time caller we would like to connect you .. blah blah” then just hang the call. But if the credit card is used and voice mail lady speak like “Ohh I’m sorry please re-enter your credit card number now” then the card is dead. You can repeat the same process as many time you want. Note: You need a good internet connection for Skype calls. Q6. What is Bill=ship/Bill=CC/Ship=your Address? Kindly pay attention here as it is also the main portion in carding process. Any mistake will cancel the order and id get blocked. BILL=SHIP (Billing address: Shipping address) Take a scenario of normal online shopping scenario, when you are doing carding you will use billing address and shipping address are same. Means in both u will use your address. No need to use credit card address. Bill=Shipping address, Ship=your address When you are doing carding, you will use credit card holder address as your billing address, and shipping address will be your address. Most sites use this method. Now we cleared basic concepts and start with the actual process of carding. Setup SOCKS proxy in Firefox: Follow the steps: open Firefox, go to options, advanced options, network A pop-up will come. It will show options No proxy 2. Auto Detect 3. Use system proxy 4. Manual proxy configuration Select manual proxy configuration. Enter socks host: <> and port: <> e.g.: 188.8.131.52: 8080. Press ok and restart Firefox. Now you are connected to secure Socks5 J Ethical Hacking Training – Resources (InfoSec) Note: when you buy a socks always match with credit card holder address. If credit card holder is from California, USA then try to get SOCKS5 at least matching state, country J Guys now time to start the Carding process. Kindly follow the steps: Create the email id matching with credit card holder name. If his name is John Cena ( the random name was taken), then email id should be [email protected] or near about. Now Run RDP and connect to the credit card holder location system to proceed. If you didn’t have RDP, then follow following steps. Open MAC changer and change the address randomly. Run CCleaner and clean all the unwanted data (cookies/history/temp data etc.). Setup SOCKS5 proxy in Firefox. <>. Be sure to use SOCK5 is matching to the location of credit card holder and be aware not to use blacklisted IP. Check with www.check2ip.com Open the site for shopping. I want to recommend a website shop from your country because you don`t need to wait a lot for your package. Register with credit card holder information (John Cena), name, country, city, address, and email. Shop and choose your item and add to cart. Precaution: Select item not more than $500 at first step. In shipping address add your address or drop address where the product is going to deliver. Then go to the payment page and choose payment method like a credit card. Enter all details of credit card manually because most of site having copy paste detector script. Finally, in billing address add credit card owner address info and then proceed with the payment process. If everything all right then the order will get successfully placed. Once the order arrives at the shipping address, receive it from delivery boy. (Few carder arrange fake id if delivery boy ask for proof). Carding method using mobile: Extra pro carder uses mobile for doing carding. If you followed steps carefully, you would also do that. Basic requirement: Require rooted Android mobile. Install few application require for carding (proxy apps, CCleaner, IMEI changer, Photo and Android ID changer). You can use any VPN for carding I recommend HMA or Zen mate. You can use SOCKS5 proxy with proxy droid apps. Also, proceed with IMEI and Android ID changer and do it. Now connect with proxy droid with SOCKS5 proxy and connect it. Now follow all the steps explained above.

Private Internet Access Review - An in-depth review
Private Internet Access talks a big game on its website. In among all the technical jargon it boasts that it’s “the most trusted name in anonymous VPN service.” Its name certainly promises as much, but can you trust Private Internet Access to give you the VPN speeds and security you need? We’ve spent days testing Private Internet Access to answer all your questions, such as: Is Private Internet Access trustworthy? What does Private Internet Access do? Does Private Internet Access work with Hulu? Does Private Internet Access keep logs? Who owns Private Internet Access? Before we get stuck in, let’s take a look at the basics of Private Internet Access, along with what we found to be its main pros and cons: Pros Excellent speeds - 87Mbps global average Easy, high-speed access to Netflix Unlimited P2P & torrenting Keeps no usage logs & no IP/DNS leaks 3,300+ servers across 32 countries User-friendly apps for PC, Mac, iOS, & Android Cons Small server network compared to top-tier providers Based in the privacy-unfriendly US Email support can be slow, limited live chat Patchy access in China Works with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Now TV, HBO, Sling TV, Torrenting, Kodi Available on Windows Mac Ios Android Linux Price from $2.91/mo Private Internet Access is an incredibly fast VPN, with some excellent features that make it ideal for privacy advocates. It’s not perfect, though – read on to find out more. Speed & Reliability Very fast and impressive speeds Private Internet Access is a very fast VPN. PIA’s best VPN servers are impressive for speed: if you live near London, New York or Toronto and want to connect locally you won’t find a faster provider in the current market. We were also highly impressed with PIA’s global performance, with very fast average download speed of 87Mbps. This is one the highest we’ve seen from any provider, making it a fantastic choice for P2P users and torrenters. Speed results from our physical location in London (100Mbps fibre optic connection) to a London test server. Before using Private Internet Access: DOWNLOAD Mbps 92 UPLOAD Mbps 99 PING ms 2 When connected to Private Internet Access: DOWNLOAD Mbps 47 UPLOAD Mbps 74 PING ms 12 Download speed without Private Internet Acess: 92Mbps Download speed with Private Internet Access: 47Mbps Our download speed loss when Private Internet Access is running: 50% Gamers will love PIA’s practically non-existent latency of less than 1ms in some locations. It also has exceptional upload speeds – you can expect 268Mbps at the best of times. We put all of the VPNs on the site through a rigorous scientific speed testing process, determining the average speeds from multiple locations across the globe. These are the average speeds you can expect to pick up from these locations: USA: 31Mbps (download) & 38Mbps (upload) Germany: 85Mbps (download) & 72Mbps (upload) Singapore: 26Mbps (download) & 9Mbps (upload) Australia: 35Mbps (download) & 10Mbps (upload) Server Locations Important locations are covered, the server list is small Globe with a blue flag 32 Countries Image of a city landscape 52 Cities Image of a pink marker 3,300+ IP Addresses See all Server Locations Private Internet Access’ servers are spread over 33 countries – a smaller selection than many of its big-name rivals, although every PIA location is courtesy of a real physical server. While 3,300-plus VPN servers is a fantastic amount, it’s likely that there’s only one IP address for each. That’s a good number, but VPN services like IPVanish (40,000) and VyprVPN (200,000) have far more. PIA VPN covers all the most popular locations in a good global spread, while 14 separate cities (and 1,500 servers) within the US is outstanding. There’s also city-level selection in the UK, Canada, Australia, and Germany. Private Internet Access Server Locations on the Private Internet Access Website Streaming & Torrenting Good for Netflix, great for torrenting Private Internet Access’ huge array of US servers means that unblocking Netflix is never more than one or two clicks away. We found access through its Washington DC, Atlanta, Chicago and Houston servers to be very reliable, and less so with US East, New York City, Florida and California servers. Access to BBC iPlayer had recently stopped working for us, and Private Internet Access has said that rectifying it is not a priority for the service. Our most recent tests, however, had success accessing the service. Private Internet Access is also a popular choice with viewers of a whole range of other big streaming services. Plenty of subscribers enjoy using Private Internet Access with: Amazon Prime Video Hulu HBO Sling TV Sky Now TV PlayStation Vue Torrenting Private Internet Access is a very, very good VPN for torrenting. P2P traffic is permitted on all servers and the market-leading upload and download speeds ensure rapid file transfers and buffer-free Kodi. It has a VPN kill switch to keep your identity safe while you download or seed, it’s totally protected from IP and DNS leaks, and its logging policy ensures your traffic will be kept private and anonymous. Bypassing Censorship No good in China but works well in other countries Private Internet Access is unusable in large parts of China as the government has successfully managed to block it via the Great Firewall. Reports and anecdotes from users suggest that it still works in Beijing at least, for example. Unless you want to spend a lot of time tampering with long-winded manual configurations, you’ll be better off finding another VPN service, though – our roundup of the best VPNs for China should help. PIA will still work to unlock the internet in slightly less dilligent nations though, such as Turkey, Iran or Saudi Arabia. Platforms & Devices Works across all platforms, and router too Apps Windows Logo Windows Mac Logo Mac iOS Logo iOS Android Logo Android Linux Logo Linux Router Logo Router There are custom apps to get Private Internet Access running on all the popular operating systems, both desktop and mobile, while a router-level installation will cover everything else. Private Internet Access works with Microsoft Windows, Apple MacOS, Android, iPhone and more. You can use Private Internet Access on a number of devices, up to ten in total. Manual setup guides are also available on the Private Internet Access website to help walk you through more obscure platforms or older OS versions. Games Consoles & Streaming Devices AppleTV Logo AppleTV Amazon Fire TV Logo Amazon Fire TV Chromecast Logo Chromecast Nintendo Logo Nintendo PlayStation Logo PlayStation Roku Logo Roku Xbox Logo Xbox Private Internet Access offers a custom app for Amazon Fire TV and Stick. Installing the app requires a little bit of technical knowhow, but once installed you’ll be able to choose servers all around the world and access your favorite video content. It’s also possible to use PIA’s software with other streaming devices and games consoles, like the PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Google Chromecast, by connecting them to a configured router. Browser Extensions Chrome Logo Chrome Firefox Logo Firefox Private Internet Access also has browser extensions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera, which protect your browser traffic. They’re just proxies, but still protect your IP address and prevent WebRTC leaks when surfing the web. You can learn more about the differences between VPNs and proxies with our guide. Encryption & Security One of the most secure VPNs around Protocol L2TP/IPSec OpenVPN (TCP/UDP) PPTP Encryption AES-128 AES-256 Security DNS Leak Blocking First-party DNS IPV6 Leak Blocking Supports TCP Port 443 VPN Kill Switch WebRTC Leak Blocking Advanced features Ad Blocker SOCKS Please see our VPN Glossary if these terms confuse you and would like to learn more. After all this, you’re still probably wondering one question: is Private Internet Access trustworthy? We can safely say that the answer is yes. Private Internet Access is one of the most advanced VPNs on the market, sure to satisfy even the most demanding of users. A screenshot of PIA's recommended security configurations PIA’s recommended security configurations You get a broad choice of protocols with Private Internet Access (including our favorite, OpenVPN), encryption (including AES-256), an ad and malware blocker (PIA MACE), TCP Port 443, as well as a kill switch. It also features IPV6 leak protection, although it’s unlikely you’ll need that right now – still, it’s good future-proofing for when IPV6 eventually becomes the new internet standard (you can learn more about IPV6 here). One small thing we’d change is that PIA VPN offers PPTP as a protocol, but not IKEv2. We prefer OpenVPN to IKEv2, but some users like that it often gives you faster VPN connection speeds. PPTP, on the other hand, is old and insecure and shouldn’t really be used by anyone. On top of all that, we also found it didn’t leak our IP or DNS – Private Internet Access operates its own DNS servers, which helps. Logging Policy Absolutely no logging information kept Private Internet Access keeps absolutely no VPN logs whatsoever – you can use the service with total peace of mind that your data and traffic is not being monitored, nor can it be traced back to you. Jurisdiction Private Internet Access first launched in 2010 and is owned by London Trust Media, a firm with a diverse portfolio of products and a particular focus on privacy and tech. It’s based in Colorado, Denver, USA. We would normally criticize a VPN for choosing the US as its base of operations, however, in the case of Private Internet Access we’ll make an exception. The fact that absolutely no browsing logs are stored or monitored by PIA means that any prying authorities would have nothing to uncover. Ease of Use Updated app does wonders for usability How to Install & Set Up Private Internet Access Private Internet Access download options screenshot in our PIA review Go to the downloads section on PIA's website to find the right software for your device. Private Internet Access installation instructions screenshot in our PIA review We love PIA's step-by-step instructions on how to navigate the installation process. Private Internet Access setup options screenshot in our PIA review PIA gives you the option to create a handy desktop shortcut for the app. Private Internet Access setup wizard screenshot in our PIA review Once the installation is complete, you'll be given the option to launch PIA and begin using the software. PIA Main Screen Screenshot for PIA Review PIA have drastically improved its app so that it is much simpler to navigate and pleasing to look at. PIA Server List Screenshot for PIA Review When clicking on 'VPN Server' on the main screen you are taken to this list of available server connections. Its a detailed list with a search bar to find your favorite server quicker than having to scroll. PIA Connected Screenshot for PIA Review When you choose a server, the app automatically takes you back to the home screen where the button animates itself in an attempt to connect. Once connected, it turns green. PIA Main Screen Expanded Screenshot for PIA ReviewPIA Setting Menu Screenshot for PIA Review The advanced settings open in a new and separate tab to the app. In the Privacy Settings you can find the inclusion of a kill switch with the helpful option to have it on 'Always'. You can also block domains used for ads, trackers, and malware through the PIA MACE option. PIA DNS Leak Protection Screenshot for PIA Review In the 'Network' screen you can protect yourself against DNS leaks, with the options to 'Set Custom DNS' alongside tick boxes for 'Request Port Forwarding' or 'Allow LAN Traffic'. PIA Protocol and Encryption Screenshot for PIA Review In the past, PIA’s one glaring failure was its clunky, unintuitive and grossly outdated desktop app. PIA has since released a far more modern app which is much easier to navigate and straight-up better looking, clearly taking note from its competitors. There are plenty of customization options for desktop notifications, launch on start-up, and a kill switch with an ‘always’ option. PIA has come a long way, but it’s not perfect: the advanced settings still open in a new tab and the tray app remains open on top, blocking the view. Annoyingly, you have to close the whole tray app manually in order to see it. The PIA mobile app is terrific – with just as much configurability as the desktop app, plus some extra connection details. Customer Support Lacking 24/7 support but good online knowledge base Live chat Support Email Online Resources 24/7 live chat is the obvious absence from Private Internet Access’ support repertoire. It’s something almost all of its higher-scoring rivals have, such as StrongVPN and VPNArea, and a feature we’d love to see soon. With PIA VPN you can only live chat with support between 4pm-1am UTC. You must be logged in to the member area to do so, meaning it’s also only available to paying customers. The positive flip-side to this, though, is that PIA has one of the best online knowledge bases out there. It’s well organized and should answer almost any query or issue you have.

I think it's high time we talk about internet security
I'm hoping to get a community discussion going, because I'm not exactly the smartest when it comes to computers, but I've listed what suggestions I can. For the more computer-savvy people, please don't overlook this discussion because it seems basic. We could use your tips as well. And without further ado:
I've also been toying with the idea of a flash drive with a portable linux OS on it that you can boot from to keep all of your personal files quarantined, so to speak.
VPN's are also a great way to protect your identity (granted you use a good one). Ensure payment via wmz/bitcoin/liberty reserve/etc. It ruins the whole point if you pay for your proxy/vpn connections with a credit card or paypal account registered to your name. Additionally, don't sign up for the account from your home connection or using your personal email account - the VPN provider will record both of these things and be required to give them up to LE if requested.
TOR network is free and from what I can tell a lot easier and safer to use then socks5 proxy services.
Use a separate account when you post to the internet. And don't use your personal email to buy anything, either. This one seems obvious, but you can never be too careful.
Don't recycle account names, using the same account name on grow forums/microgrowery account as you use on other forums makes it very easy for people (LE) to learn lots about you without much effort.
Clear cookies regularly. There are settings in Chrome and firefox to delete cookies every time you close a browser.
Don't connect to grow forums/microgrowery under different accounts without clearing cookies and switching vpn providers/proxies/etc. Most of these sites will keep a log of IP addresses linked to accounts to use for abuse prevention. (eg. they will block all accounts linked to an abusive IP address). This can be used against you when LE requests IP information for all accounts and activity linked to your IP address, and not just a specific account.
Don't search with google. Your google account keeps track of everything you enter in the search bar and it could come back to bite you later. Facebook is creepy, too. Log out.
Don't multitask. Sometimes sites can find out what you have open in other tabs. Email is a no-no.
Don't browse from home. Visit a local coffee shop.
Use Imgur as a host, they strip exif data (GPS location/camera model/date and time) from pictures. For extra safety you can just download an app to do this.
Don't use email accounts for password recovery on grow forums/microgrowery account that LE can obtain access to with a simple request. Hotmail and gmail give it up like a slut, stick to servers in the Ukraine or Russia - I know many people using safe-mail.net accounts without any issue. Obviously don't trust my advice though, because I could be LE ;)
You can also set your ebay profile to private, meaning other people can't see what you've bought.
Use cash to pay for prepaid debit cards in order to buy things online.
Don't take pictures of anything that could compromise your identity, including serial numbers, bar codes, or even fingerprints.
I hope I didn't leave anything big out. I'll update this list with any suggestions you guys have. Good luck. LAST UPDATED 1/25 For the most part, it's just a straight up copypasta, but I omitted contributor names just in case. ;)
My dorm roommate is big on computer security and anonymity. He uses tor, proxies, and VPNs a lot. Also follows online news and blogs and lately he's been reading a lot about bitcoin as well as the current price surging higher. It's not uncommon for him to watch me attempt day trading on the exchanges. So one afternoon after classes we decide to go out and pick up some food, we put all of it on the same order and he told me to pay him back some time. A day or two passes and he asks me when I can pay back the money, and just like the day before I had no cash (only my debit card and my bitcoin). I offered to set him up with a wallet and to throw in a few more bucks. This wasn't the first time I've offered but he surprisingly took me up on it. After the long wait for the bitcoin-qt client to finish syncing we checked the current price and I sent him the equivalent. Since then he's been watching the graphs and reading more into bitcoin news.
Transactions to buy and sell are always linked to a bank account, credit card, debit card or any other payment method that is linked directly to your identity. In some cases, even a fiat purchase can be traced if the public Bitcoin address – or cryptocurrency address – can be directly link to your IP address. Bitcoin's core innovation was to replace a trusted central payment processor—like a bank or credit card company—with a decentralized network of computers. This was not easy to do. Bitcoin mining tends to gravitate towards countries with cheap electricity. As Bitcoin mining is somewhat centralized, 10-15 mining companies have claimed the vast majority of network hash power. With many of these companies in the same country, only a number of countries mine and export a significant amount of bitcoins.
