Buying proxies is an easy and effective way to guard your security online. But how can you safeguard the actual proxy purchase itself? There are many options for traditional or digital currency transactions, but which one is best?
Bitcoin cryptocurrency is one possible choice for those concerned about privacy to help protect your security during the purchase. Follow this handy guide below to learn how to buy proxies using Bitcoin.
Invented in 2009, Bitcoin was the first digital currency to gain widespread popularity. Unlike standard currency exchanges, bitcoin is peer-to-peer, meaning there are no central banking institutions.
The autonomy that Bitcoin enjoys can, at times, be a blessing and a curse. Bitcoin is much more private than typical digital transactions but lacks the safeguards of more time-honored payment systems.
You must install a digital Bitcoin wallet on your computer or smart device to get started. The Bitcoin wallet does what it sounds like— holding all your future Bitcoin money.
If you plan to use Bitcoin to purchase proxies, consider a few points before proceeding. Check out our Bitcoin points below to ensure a seamless buying experience.
Because Bitcoin is still in its infancy, the market experiences rapid and unpredictable changes. Bitcoin’s value can be up one moment and down the next. When purchasing proxies with Bitcoin, you can suddenly see the price skyrocket due to the fluctuating Bitcoin market.
Just like a physical wallet holds your real cards and cash, your Bitcoin wallet also holds your Bitcoin. You need to safeguard your digital wallet and give it the same care and respect you would show a genuine wallet or purse.
We recommend backing up your Bitcoin wallet and storing it in an encrypted format for added security. Your responsibility is to protect your funds, and we cannot be held liable for loss or damage.
Confirmed Bitcoin transactions are not refundable. Even if you make a mistake, such as entering the wrong amount or misspelling the destination account, we cannot refund the transaction once it’s confirmed.
For this reason, you must verify all information on the payment page before submitting your purchase.
Although Bitcoin is not entirely anonymous, many people are attracted to its more private nature. As a professional proxy provider, we understand the importance privacy and security play on the modern web.
