Use Bitcoin to Pay for my VPN Service Provider

What Bitcoin is and how it works is a bit of a new concept for me, and I’ve yet to get my head completely around it.  What I do know however, is that it’s more anonymous than any other form of payment, so it’s no wonder that VPN services that allow payments with Bitcoin are in demand because of the privacy and anonymity of Bitcoin.  Still, Bitcoin is not well known, and certainly not very popular, so few VPN services allow it.
...

Whatever your position is, paying with Bitcoin can increase your anonymity online, meaning that your personal data, including money accounts won’t be associated with your VPN account.

mrvpn doesn't seem like a particularly established site - but as argued in Rick Falkvinges article, 'Never trust a VPN provider that doesn't accept bitcoin', VPNs and Bitcoin are a great fit.

I find it somewhat perplexing/frustrating that despite Falkvinges article being a year old, and a few VPN providers accepting Bitcoin, a guy specialising in VPNs is still now saying that Bitcoin 'is a bit of a new concept' for him.
