Crypto Coins News - Ratings - Reviews
PIA has aquired blockexplorer.com which has then announced to refer to a centralized altcoin as "Bitcoin" in the future. I am flabbergasted that a company that has a business model based on trusting them and that had such a good reputation is fucking that up by promoting an outright scam. Same counts for Rick Falkvinge, who works for both companies and is obviously the person initiating this weird move. Rick is "head of privacy" at PIA and CEO of blockexplorer.com and is at the same time publishing outright lies about Bitcoin's technology (like "Segwit is patented": https://falkvinge.net/2017/05/01/blockstream-patents-segwit-makes-pieces-fall-place/ despite knowing very well that no such patents exist).
However, since they cannot be trusted anymore and since I will in no way support the intended dillution of the Bitcoin brand in order to confuse newbies and trick them into buying fake bitcoins I am looking for an alternative VPN provider who accepts Bitcoin.
I want to move away from PIA asap, like right now.
Update: thanks for the tips! Trying out torguard now. Just deleted PIA from all my systems and feel much safer now :).
