How anonymously? Truly anonymous takes work.

Are we talking Tin Foil Hat Anonymous?

You could send me just cash in the mail with a printed address enclosed. You wouldn't need to write a return address.

I am not sure if there is anyone who runs services like these, or how trust worthy they'd be. I'd be willing to start something though.

EDIT: actually, some sort of return address might be a good idea in case I can't fill your order. I'd have no way of returning your money to you... Maybe not a great idea, but might be good with some careful planning.

PM me. Will this will be at the Mt. Gox "last price" exchange rate?

Something that allows usage through Tor.


Grab a MoneyPak, get on to Tor, set up Tor SASL, goto #bitcoin-otc on freenode IRC, make your offer. Wait until someone responds, provide MP to a trusted trader there, receive BTC.  This will probably be the cheapest and safest routes for you to maintain anonymity.

Why such a concern over the purchase of BTC though?  They are not illegal.

Spending the Coins is where you might be more concerned over anonymity rather than purchasing them.

Cash in the mail also works but that takes time and several layers of trust.

Atlas, no one is looking 'for' you. We're all looking away from you.

For others, I wouldn't worry much about buying anonymously. If you are paranoid it should still be plenty good enough to buy at Gox and cycle the coins you get once. This would protect you from, hypothetically, buying from Gox, they know which coins belong to you, now you send to a person who ends up being law enforcement or other dangerous group and Gox tells them who bought the coins. But if you say send them to instawallet or other and withdraw over them course of a few days it's nearly impossible to connect. Put a few more hops and it's a lock imo.

If you don't want anyone to possibly know you use bitcoin that might be harder. You should prob not buy with digital fiat from a stranger you don't trust to keep your secret in that case.
