Any flags for PureVPN?

I already have a proton subscription but, who knows, for back-ups, especially the 12$/ one year deal , since it's not billed for 3 or 5 years in advance?
I'm not sure how many of those services will still be around in 2024  Grin

If this one sucks, something else?
I know Nord VPN looks good but throwing upfront 130$ for a backup...meh!


Ps.
OmegaStarScream, remove the /ru/ after nordvpn, I thought my VPN is going nuts when I opened the page and saw everything in Russian  Grin Grin

Actually, I found some big ones.

Pure VPN lies about keeping logs.
A VPN won't save you if the feds come knocking...

Some may be cheaper but remember... in some cases, if you don't pay for the product (or pay too little Cheesy) then you are the product.

Thanks for that, so scratch it, although, to be honest, I don't remember doing anything that would have the feds raid my bed...but.. Cool

I was tented to buy it because it was offering an annual bill plan, others were offering quite the same, what's 1$ or 2$ anyhow, but I was wondering about paying upfront 100$+, when I already have a trusted one ... nieeeee

Especially since the shopping cart with toys for my little pikachu  Grin almost has an extra digit. Christmas will be a nightmare for my wallet.

ProtonVPN seem one of the best on the market at the moment. I would just stick with them. I wouldn't be wasting money on a year long subscription to another one just to use as a "back up" if Proton was to go down for whatever reason. There are enough decent ones out there that offer monthly billing, at the cost of only 3 or 4 bucks per month. They might not be the best, but they would suffice for a couple of days while Proton comes back up or you find another long term provider.

What's stopping me from using ProtonVPN, is that although they say this:
Quote
No-log policy

ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your internet activity, and therefore, we are unable to disclose this information to third parties.
They also say this:
Quote
The Service cannot be used for activities prohibited by Swiss law. To protect our services from being misused, abused or being used to harm someone, we enforce some rules which apply to every user equally, regardless of the type of subscription. You specifically agree not to use this Service for:

    Accessing/sharing/downloading/uploading illegal content, including, but not limited to, child pornography or content perceived to be child pornography;
    Harassing, abusing, insulting, harming, defaming, slandering, disparaging, intimidating, or discriminating based on gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, race, age, national origin, or disability;
    Sending or transmitting unsolicited advertisements or content ("Spam") over the Service, via e-mail or any other communication channel;
    Attempting to access, probe, or connect to computing devices without proper authorization (i.e., any form of “hacking”);
    Infringing upon or violating our intellectual property rights or the intellectual property rights of others;
    Promoting illegal activities, or providing means for/helping other people commit illegal activities by providing instructional information;

The account of any user found involved in any of the aforementioned activities will be suspended immediately without notice. Additionally, you may be held responsible for any and all damages incurred by the Company, including any amounts charged by any outside entity due to said violation(s), including without limitation attorney's fees and costs.
How are they going to enforce those rules if they don't keep logs? Those rules make me question their no-log policy.

@LoyceV

The only log there is the login timestamp which only contains username & time when the user logged in. So that the only thing they could report. In the comments, there is a representative explaining they can't really do something and rarely do. Look like trying to enforce those rules isn't their priority.

Quote
We wouldn’t be able to identify the user since we do not log original IP addresses or internet traffic of any particular user.

Quote
however, in an event where we would eventually figure out abuse/illegal activity of any account in other ways (f.e. user would report it by him/herself), we remain a right to suspend that account without further notice.
Quote
So far we have not encountered any such case that we know of

-snip-
Their reasoning is that while they don't keep logs, they are able to look at traffic in real time (any VPN provider is). If they were to be alerted by other means (law enforcement, anonymous reports, etc.) that illegal activity was taking place via one of their VPN servers, they would examine the traffic from that server in real time, and ban any account which was found to be breaking the law.

There are a couple of good explanations from them below:

Thank you for the list.

I just bought a Ledger on discount.

BTW most of the hosting providers will have a Cyber Monday deals in 2-3 days. Already got the Dynadot and few others spam.

Check Namecheap today they are starting to offer cheap hosting, domain and etc... Just to remind you guys that the deal is started.

Look https://www.namecheap.com/domain-web-hosting-ssl-deals/black-friday

The only the best option for now for me for 1 year is stellar plus even it is not the same as before (I got $4 stellar plus for 1yr before) it still cheap with free .website domain. Make sure to get the .website domain for 1 yr free so that you don't miss this free domain because if you choose a different domain you won't get the .website domain free it is included on their package so don't ignore you can add more domain later after you get the stellar plus for unlimited websites.
 

I just want to add this if you want to buy a cheaper domain name you can use Godaddy then use this coupon below to buy 0.99 domain

Code:
gofhmy09

it is good for your stellar plus account for multiple websites just use bitcoin debit/credit card to buy them.

Another free domain below I got one .best domain for free I hope it will also work to you.

Code:

Did you read this?
Quote
Additional terms and conditions apply. Please see the ShapeShift Terms of Service for more details.
It does not ask this if you buy it through the normal link for $49.

I didn't read everything, but for sure didn't like this:
Quote
In addition to the personal data described in the Privacy Policy, you acknowledge that full participation in the Beta Program currently requires the use of a KeepKey or Trezor device and that ShapeShift will collect and process your device’s xpub data
That means they'll know who you are, where you are, and what you own!

I can't find anywhere if this is the normal version or that it can only be used in combination with ShapeShift.

Trezor and Ledger are the two most trusted no question atm..but KeepKey is not a bad option however.  I would not trust any others from my list in here (if you can add to it please let me know!) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5124662.msg50317188#msg50317188

LoyceV brought up a good point however..the terms / details on this purchase are eerily connected to shapeshift..as if this was some sort of shapeshift model. I kind of doubt it after a quick read through..but a very fair point.

"KeepKey is the premier wallet in the new ShapeShift Platform, a web-based interface for managing your crypto, now with commission free trading.  
Stress-Free Security: Generate and manage your private keys offline in cold storage, guarded against computer vulnerabilities and viruses, while utilizing wallet software for safe transactions.
Comprehensive Crypto Management: Use ShapeShift's intuitive web-based interface to buy, sell, send, receive, trade, track, and hodl your crypto. Trade for free with FOX tokens.
Straightforward Backup and Recovery: Each device generates a 12-word recovery sentence during initialization that can be used to retrieve your private keys. Have peace of mind that your funds are secure, even if you lose or break your KeepKey.
Sleek and Simple Display: The large display gives clarity to every digital asset sent and received on your device. Each transaction must be manually approved using the confirmation button, giving you control and visibility over your transactions.
Effortless Exchanges: Trade crypto commission free with the ShapeShift platform, directly from your wallet.
Details

Supports the world’s leading cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Dash, and 46 ERC-20 tokens. We are also continually adding new assets; stay up to date with our latest updates or check our asset support page.
KeepKey is a USB HID-class device.

Support: Chrome and Brave browsers. Optimized for MacOS.

Additional terms and conditions apply. Please see the ShapeShift Terms of Service for more details."


Edit- sorry for redundant post should have known Loyce would beat me here lol. ( I wasn't sure which thread you were referring to Loyce so I went for it  Cheesy )

Great list, OP.

I don't really have a need for a VPN service, but it's tempting.

Aw hell, I don't want to spend any bitcoin anyway.  Not that this is a speculation thread, but it looks like the price is rebounding quite a bit and I don't want to miss out if it goes even higher.  It's even more tempting to take advantage of Newegg's discounts, because they have some awesome stuff--not just tech and computer goods, either.  They actually have a lot of home and office supplies and other things for sale.

I wouldn't touch that Keepkey deal, even if it is for $5.  I got one not too long ago and haven't used it for anything except a keepsake.  It's a nice looking hardware wallet, but the built-in ShapeShift thing just sucks.  But that's my own bias.  Other people might love it, and if you can get it that cheap it's a damn good deal.

Guys, wanna share your Bitcoin Black Friday purchases?
I can share mine - I bought shared hosting on Namecheap. But I had some big issues. Namecheap use BitPay for Bitcoin payments. I heard that BitPay is bad service, but I didn't expected that they are so shitty. As most of you know, they give invoice ID for payment. It means that you have to use BitPay compatible wallet for payment. So, I tried my Ledger Nano S and guess what - it's not compatible. You only can pay using Ledger only with Electrum or Mycelium. I really don't want to download another wallet just to proccess payment. So, looked for another option - Coinomi, neither mobile, neither desktop aren't supported. And my last option - Blockchain.com wallet. Finally I was able to pay, but I got multiple errors before that. Honestly, I already wanted to give up and pay with my debit card...
I just can't understand why BitPay doesn't gives payment address like they used to do before? Because giving only invoice ID is bad idea IMO. It's soooo inconvenient...

Yes, BitPay sucks. But you can bypass their shit payment protocol which is only supported in a few wallets by using a tool like DeBitpay which decodes the payment URL and gets the address and amount, allowing you to make the transaction directly from any wallet.
