Add Paysafecard as a payment option

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

Add Paysafecard as a payment option

Postby Anonymous poster » Fri Nov 25, 2016 8:51 am

Paysafecard is an electronic money system that allows users to exchange cash for a secure code in psysical stores that carries Paysafecard. That code can then be used for paying for goods online. It is as far as I have understood a very anonymous system and I believe that it would be good to add it as a payment option. Bitcoin is by default not anonymous (it's pseudonymous) and all transaction data is made public by the Blockchain. Bitcoin can be made harder to trace back by experienced Bitcoin users who know what they are doing, but for rookies using Bitcoin, anonymizing Bitcoin, and avoiding scams while doing it is no easy feat. For this group, people who are not able to anonymize Bitcoins and still want to obtain cryptostorm subscriptions anonymously, Paysafecard would be an ideal solution.

It is pointless if they can still monitor where and what you purchase with those PINs.

Blockchain related payment is the way to go but it is being increasingly regulated.

Worst case scenario is that the Paysafecard code can be traced back to the specfic store where it was purchased and that they have security cameras that still has the footage archived. I have no idea to what extend they know where a specific Paysafecard code was sold from: If they know it at all, if they know which country, if they know which city, if they know which store it was bought from. However, it is far superior to using a credit card in terms of privacy for those who do not have the technical expertise to transact with Bitcoin. As someone who tried Bitcoin and concluded that it was too complicated for me - and gave up because I didn't know what the hell I was doing and didn't want to lose money - I can tell you that far from everyone can handle Bitcoin, but they should still have the opportunity to protect their privacy with as little trace as possible left behind. If a technically inexperienced user wants to purchase a VPN subscription and the payment options that he/she can handle are credit card and Paysafecard, I'd say Paysafecard is preferable and harder to trace.
