Using Bitcoin to buy a VPN

ExpressVPN accepts Bitcoin

For a privacy-conscious VPN service, accepting an anonymous form of payment is a must. Other centralized, regulated payment providers rely on credit—a system built on collecting and verifying large amounts of personal data. However, with Bitcoin payments, you need only provide your email address.

While Bitcoin payments are not perfectly anonymous, they provide a significant privacy gain over established remittance methods. In the United States, gift cards offer an attractive alternative but are difficult for non-US providers to accept.

Apart from privacy, Bitcoin also offers interesting business opportunities. For example, it helps us provide VPN protection to individuals who can’t obtain a credit card. If you’re a relatively wealthy person from a Western country, this may seem far-fetched, but for people from certain countries, with certain credit scores, or for those who don’t have a place to call home (aka digital nomads), Bitcoin is a lifesaver.
