Anonymous Bitcoin and Altcoin Exchanges
Every option we can find for anonymous exchanges and the countries where people are using them for buying and selling bitcoin and altcoins worldwide.
With many countries regulators requiring a KYC (know your customer) or AML (anti-money laundering) verification process to have “regulated” exchanges, the privacy many people value with Bitcoin, Monero and other Altcoins is always going to be difficult to protect.
We’ve searched long and hard for some of the known and “unknown” options people are using for buying and selling anonymously worldwide.
An anonymous decentralized exchange with the following deposit options:
National bank transfer Cash Deposit, SEPA, SEPA Instant, MoneyBeam (N26), Zelle, Chase QuickPay, Uphold, Cash App, Venmo, Revolut, Faster Payments, US Postal Money Order, Interac e-Transfer, Swish, Western Union, OKPay, Perfect Money, Alipay, Transfer with same bank, Transfer with specific banks.
Buy and Sell Bitcoin and all of the popular Altcoins from anywhere in the world with Bisq.
Full release of hodlhodl will be in June 2018, the beta is live and many traders have liked this option. Similar to Localbitcoins, without the identification requirements and US residents are prohibited from using this one. Wiring funds or using gift cards to trade peer to peer with no KYC/AML requirements.
We’ve seen sell and buy offers listed in Hong Kong, Chile, Columbia, Brazil, Ukraine, Russia, Singapore, Peru, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Kosovo, Portugal, Spain, France.
Anonymously buy bitcoin using 100’s of gift cards around the world from different sellers. Amazon gift card, Apple, Nordstrom, PayPal, Western Union, OneVanilla Gift Card and Visa and MasterCard are accepted. Many sellers require no identification to purchase bitcoin.
People anywhere in the world can buy an Amazon gift card in USD for $200 and trade it for Bitcoin on Paxful. Always select “show me another offer” to see what the best rate from other sellers is currently.
Another that requires Bitcoin or an Altcoin to start trading with, Changelly trades in your browser in real time for most of the popular altcoins anytime. Changelly has been trading bitcoin and altcoins anonymously since 2013 and has a very good reputation (we would remove anyone who didn’t) with crypto currency purchasers.
Mycelium Local Trader
This one flew under our radar for awhile. It’s like localbitcoins used to be, in the mycelium app your location “range” can be shared with other users of the app to trade with people in your area. They have full documentation about how the app isn’t storing users info, exact locations or trades made. Seems local trader has been an option for years and many people have used it with success.
Super anonymous, claiming to only want “whales” using their exchange, Exchange Base has a small clientele of Crypto Currency holders that want Anonymous Visa Bitcoin Cards, Western Union Transfers, Paypal or wires for Bitcoin, Monero, Zcoin or Litecoin.
Decentralized escrow platform and P2P exchange for EC-20 tokens on the Ethereum Network. The Bitcoin to Fiat pairing being rolled out in June 2018 has us intrigued with Payfair, not 100% sold yet over options though.
WallofCoins broker sales between buyers and sellers through their cell phones. Not truly anonymous as some people won’t want to give out their phone number. It is close enough to anonymous for most and worth a mention here.
Peer to peer anonymous trading. BitQuick let’s people wire, western union or money gram funds to sellers of bitcoin. The rumor we heard is that the wait time for transactions is slow using BitQuick, which is rather ironic, but users of the site have always been paid.
