    Anyone know of a legitimate Bitcoin merch that accepts payment by credit card in the USA? I want to buy a VPN with crypto but can only find vendors that accept bank transfers, which takes several days.
    Thanks

    Not true. If you were a localbitcoins member you could buy bitcoins in the USA with a bank deposit and have your coins in your wallet in minutes. You deposit cash into the sellers designated account and localbitcoins ESCROWS the coins until the transaction is completed. Pick members with strong feedback and it'll go smooth as can be. Same as ebay, pick sellers with tons of good feedback and its pretty darn safe.


    ps - didn't know if you REQUIRED the use of plastic. I thought you might be waiting because you are unfamiliar with cash means of doing this.

    Good to know. I discovered an escrow marketplace Paxful.com and was able to purchase with PP. I only got 80 cents on the dollar but it was fast and instant.
