The Blackmail Email Scam (part 4)

THIS THREAD IS NOW ARCHIVED, THE LATEST THREAD CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://old.reddit.com/Scams/comments/g8jqnthe_blackmail_email_scam_part_5/

TEXT, PHONE CALL, AND PHYSICAL MAIL VARIANTS ARE COVERED IN THE LATEST THREAD.

IF YOU RECEIVE A BLACKMAIL EMAIL, PLEASE REDACT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION AND POST IT AS A COMMENT ON THIS THREAD SO THAT OTHERS WHO RECEIVE THE SAME EMAIL CAN FIND IT THROUGH GOOGLE.

THIRD THREAD: https://old.reddit.com/Scams/comments/biv65o/the_blackmail_email_scam_part_3/

There have been many recent posts about the blackmail email scam, so I have written this post and will keep it stickied until the posts about the scam die down. If you are reading this because you have received one of these emails and you are worried, you can stop worrying. The blackmail email scam is a spam campaign that is sent out to thousands of addresses at a time. In al cases, the threats are lies and you do not have anything to worry about. In many cases, the emails will contain information about you such as your name, part or all of your phone number, and your password. The emails may also look like they were sent from your own email address. The data is gathered from data breaches, and if the email looks like it came from your account that is due to email spoofing. You can use the service Have I Been Pwned? to see if you are in any publicly known data breaches. If you receive an email that contains a password that you currently use, you should immediately change that. Current recommended password guidelines say that you should use a different, complex password for every account. You can generate and save passwords using a password manager for convenience. You should also be using two factor authentication using an app like Google Authenticator instead of receiving codes through SMS.
Here are some news articles about this scam. Here is a story from Brian Krebs, and here is a story from the New York Times.
Below are a few examples, but if you receive an email that is similar but not the same as the examples you see, that does not matter and does not mean that the email is real. The spammers constantly switch up their templates in order to bypass spam filters, so it's normal to receive an email that hasn't yet been posted online.
Hey there
So I am the hacker who cracked your email address and device a few weeks back.
You typed in your pwd on one of the sites you visited, and I intercepted that.
Here is your password from (redacted) upon time of compromise: (redacted)
Obviously you can can change it, or even already changed it.
However it won't really matter, my malware modified it every time.
Do not really try to contact me personally or find me.
Via your email, I uploaded harmful code to your Operation System.
I saved your entire contacts together with buddies, fellow workers, loved ones along with a entire history of visits to the World wide web resources.
Also I set up a Virus on your system.
You aren't my only target, I generally lock computers and ask for a ransom.
But I was hit by the web pages of romantic material that you normally stop by.
I am in shock of your own fantasies! I have never ever noticed anything at all like this!
Consequently, when you had enjoyment on piquant web-sites (you know what I am talking about!) I made screenshot with utilizing my program from your camera of yours device.
There after, I put together them to the content of the currently viewed site.
There will certainly be giggling when I send these pics to your connections!
Nevertheless I am certain you do not need this.
Therefore, I expect to have payment from you for my silence.
I feel $859 is an satisfactory price for this!
Pay with Bitcoin.
My Bitcoin wallet is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If you do not really understand how to do this - submit in to Google 'how to transfer money to the bitcoin wallet'. It is easy.
Immediately after getting the given amount, all your files will be right away destroyed automatically. My computer virus will also get rid of itself through your operating-system.
My Trojan viruses have auto alert, so I know when this specific e mail is read.
I give you 2 days (48 hours) to make a payment.
If this does not occur - just about all your associates will get outrageous pictures from your darkish secret life and your system will be blocked as well after two days.
Do not end up being foolish!
Police or buddies won't support you for sure ...
P.S I can provide you with recommendation for the future. Do not type in your security passwords on risky web pages.
I wish for your wisdom.
Bon voyage.
Your computer device was attacked by the malicious app . Whats the trouble? I placed my malicious agent on a erotica portal, you clicked on this data and promptly adjusted the malware to your computer . The hostile program made your selfie-camera shooting and I enjoy the videotape with you dash your doodle. In next 5 hours this hostile program copied all your contacts. Right now, I receive your all your contact information and video with you masturbating, and now if you wish me to destroy all the data affect payment 350 $USD in BTC digital currency. Other way I want forward that this record to all your contacts . I forward you my Bitcoin wallet - XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX You possess 27 hours after reading. In a case if I possess transaction I am going to undo that this record once for all. I beg pardon for my mistakes- I live in China . P.S. this postal address, I have thieved it
Good day,
If you had been more careful while caressing yourself, I wouldn't worry you. I don't think that playing with yourself is very bad, but when all your colleagues, relatives and friends get a video recording of it - it is definitely bad for you.
I placed malicious software on a website for adults (with porn) which was visited by you. When the target taps on a play button, your device starts recording the screen and all cameras on your device begin to work.
Moreover, my program allows a remote desktop connection with keylogger function from the device, so I could collect all contacts from your e-mail, messengers and other social networks. I'm writing on this e-mail cuz it's your working address, so you must check it.
I suppose that three hundred twenty usd is good enough for this little misstep. I made a split screen video (recorded from your screen (u have interesting tastes ) and camera ooooooh... its awful AF)
So it's your choice. If you want me to erase this compromising evidence, use my Bitcoin wallet address: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX You have one day after opening my message; I put a special tracking pixel in it, so when you will open it I will see. If you want me to show you the proofs, reply to this message and I will send my creation to five contacts that I got from your contacts.
P.S. You can try to complain to the police, but I don't think that they can help, the investigation will last for 5 month- I'm from Ukraine - so I dgf lmao

This excellent post as Subway & Dairy Queen.
Hello!
I'm a programmer who cracked your email account and device about half year ago. You entered a password on one of the insecure site you visited, and I catched it.
Of course you can will change your password, or already made it. But it doesn't matter, my rat software update it every time.
Please don't try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your email account.
Through your e-mail, I uploaded malicious code to your Operation System. I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and a complete history of visits to the Internet resources. Also I installed a rat software on your device and long tome spying for you.
You are not my only victim, I usually lock devices and ask for a ransom. But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you very often visit.
I am in shock of your reach fantasies! Wow! I've never seen anything like this! I did not even know that SUCH content could be so exciting!
So, when you had fun on intime sites (you know what I mean!) I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device. After that, I jointed them to the content of the currently viewed site.
Will be funny when I send these photos to your contacts! And if your relatives see it? BUT I'm sure you don't want it. I definitely would not want to ...
I will not do this if you pay me a little amount. I think $877 is a nice price for it!
I accept only Bitcoins. My BTC wallet: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If you have difficulty with this - Ask Google "how to make a payment on a bitcoin wallet". It's easy. After receiving the above amount, all your data will be immediately removed automatically. My virus will also will be destroy itself from your operating system.
My Trojan have auto alert, after this email is looked, I will be know it!
You have 2 days (48 hours) for make a payment. If this does not happen - all your contacts will get crazy shots with your dirty life! And so that you do not obstruct me, your device will be locked (also after 48 hours)
Do not take this frivolously! This is the last warning! Various security services or antiviruses won't help you for sure (I have already collected all your data).
Here are the recommendations of a professional: Antiviruses do not help against modern malicious code. Just do not enter your passwords on unsafe sites!
I hope you will be prudent. Bye.
Same as before but they increased the amount
I got an order from someone to kill you and your family
but I am far from your house

Hello!
I am a hacker who has access to your operating system.
I also have full access to your account.
I've been watching you for a few months now.
The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.
If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.
Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device.
This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.
I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence.
Why your antivirus did not detect malware?
Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent.
I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.
With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks.
I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use.
If you want to prevent this,
transfer the amount of $500 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin").
My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: x
After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again.
I give you 50 hours (more than 2 days) to pay.
I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.
Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address.
I do not make any mistakes.
If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed.
Best regards.
Hey, I know your password is:
Your computer was infected with my malware, RAT (Remote Administration Tool), your browser wasn't updated / patched, in such case it's enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more - Google: "Drive-by exploit".
My malware gave me full access and control over your computer, meaning, I got access to all your accounts (see password above) and I can see everything on your screen, turn on your camera or microphone and you won't even notice about it.
I collected all your private data and I was spying on you, I RECORDED (through your webcam) embarrassing moments of you, you know what I mean!
After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces.
I can publish all your private data everywhere and I can send the videos to all your contacts, post it on social network, publish it on the whole web, including the darknet, where the sick people are!
Only you can prevent me from doing this and only I can help you out in this situation.
Transfer exactly 1200$ with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.
It's a very good offer, compared to all that horrible shit that will happen if I publish everything!
You can easily buy bitcoin here: www.paxful.com , www.coingate.com , www.coinbase.com , or check for bitcoin ATM near you, or Google for other exchanger. You can send the bitcoin directly to my address, or create your own wallet first here: www.login.blockchain.com/en/#/signup/ , then receive and send to mine.
My bitcoin address is:
Copy and paste my address, it's (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE)
I give you 3 days time to transfer the bitcoin!
As I got access to this email account, I will know if this email has already been read. If you get this email multiple times, it's to make sure you read it and after payment you can ignore it. After receiving the payment, I will remove everything and you can life your live in peace like before.
Next time update your browser before browsing the web!

Adult Content Websites Record Increase In Crypto Transactions Due To COVID-19

Adult Content Websites Record Increase In Crypto Transactions Due To COVID-19

The Porn Industry Reported Increased Interest From Crypto Users Worldwide
As the world struggles with the ongoing COVID-19 virus outbreak, people are trying to get used to living indoors. The world of online entertainment experienced a massive boost in terms of a raised demand, as streaming and gaming services increased in popularity. Content providers like Netflix recorded a surge in China and Italy, just days after the countries entered a never-witnessed before lockdown.
As the world of online entertainment flourishes amid the global crisis, so does the adult entertainment industry. Business Insider recently reported one of the leading adult content providers, PornHub, to be going up with 11,6% in traffic globally. Also, countries with a positive stance on the sex industry – like Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, showed a boost in traffic amid the lockdown.
However, the correlation between the porn industry and the crypto sector became more evident, as cryptos saw a by-proxy benefit from the aggregated surge in demand for online adult content.
Crypto payments processing company CoinGate reported an increase in crypto transactions in March, related to adult content websites. Some of the leaders in live webcam shows, LiveJasmin and ManyVids, managed to attract 8% and 17% increases in purchases, respectively. Other websites reported up to 35% increase in demand.
The crypto payment processor also noted that the Forex markets correspond to the COVID-19 outbreak as well. CoinGate reported a 13% increase in Bitcoin (BTC) transactions, Ethereum (ETH) transactions jumped with 14%, while Bitcoin Cash (BCH) recorded a 12% increase in the total number of transactions.
“People may start relying on the usage of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies more often. The traditional financial market showed it’s not immune to higher volatility than Bitcoin, for example.” CoinGate reported.
Despite the positive outcomes in terms of using cryptocurrencies as payment methods and the increase in transaction amounts, the ground beneath the crypto sector is still shaky. Bitcoin, as well as the entire crypto sector, fell into the whirlpool of financial breakdowns, mostly due to the unstable markets from the COVID-19 virus.

Data from Blockchain.com shows a rough March for the crypto sector. The slump this time was in the number of transactions, as well as the amount of the transactions. In early February, Bitcoin recorded a 7-day average of 321,880 transactions per day. Bitcoin hit a two-month bottom of 251,630, before rebounding to 273,000 as of press time.

Recent report says that nobody uses Bitcoin for payments. Is that really true?

Recently, we stumbled upon a report about the use of Bitcoin (you can read more about the study here) which made a few headlines in the media stating that ‘almost nobody uses it’.
It suggests that only 1.3% of all bitcoin transactions account for payments made to merchants. But if you start crunching the numbers, they don’t seem to add up. We at CoinGate also compared the numbers with our data to show you why we doubt the accuracy of this report.
According to data retrieved from Blockchain.com, there were 290,287 bitcoin transactions per day on average in the last 12 months. It means that this 1.3% would account for 3,774 transactions per day that were made for paying for goods and services.
CoinGate processes more than 1,000 of such Bitcoin transactions per day on average. Now, if we’d assume that the report presents accurate data, that would mean that 26.5% of all merchant related transactions go through us, which would be way off the track.
What about BitPay, or CoinPayments? For example, at the beginning of the year, BitPay stated that they had processed more than $1 billion worth of transactions last year with an average cart size of $678.77. This means that in a year, they processed around 1,473,250 transactions or 4,036 transactions per day. Even this number is already more than 1.3% that is presented in the report.
And we are not even mentioning all those stores that accept Bitcoin directly to their wallets, or via open-source software like BTCPay.
It’s not that we want to throw shade on the company that published this report. We’re just concerned that it spreads a false message that cryptocurrencies are all about speculation.

[EU] [FIAT GATEWAY] Bitvavo.com is a new fiat ramp for NANO!

Hello dear NANO'ers,

I come with great news. Bitvavo - a DUTCH exchange, secretly has fully implemented NANO on their exchange! This means you can buy AND sell NANO for Euros! Bitvavo is a DUTCH exchange, under Dutch/European law, having its HQ within the Netherlands. This is AMAZING. I made a post about Bitvavo adding nanos last year, back then you couldnt send/withdraw NANO (so it was fully artificial), but now its fully operational!

Why is this a big deal? Its an European exchange, falling under European laws (Dutch to be precise). Since i live in the Netherlands, this to me is just amazing. The dutch are a meticulously kind of folk. Dutch laws are quite strong and complicated and regulations are strong here. To have a working fiat ramp exchange that hasnt been shutdown by authorities, means it has a certain degree of Trustworthiness (at least for me and Dutch laws, which are stricter then European laws mostly).

Is it any good? Well, i first deposited euro's on the website (which you cant hold for longer then 5 days, since it isnt a bank and certain laws are preventing that), which went 'pretty' fast. I bought nano's with it (which was instant), and then i withdrew NANO's from it...which went through in SECONDS. Yes. Seconds. I put the order in, went to Binance to check things out and literally a few seconds later i heard the ping from CANOE. I couldnt believe it lol. I actually was in awe and suddenly became extremely enthusiastic, and immediately bought more lol.

What about fees? They take maketrader fees of 0.25%. In my eyes, that isnt much. For withdrawal they also have fee, but its around 0.00025 nano if im right. Its crazy low. And crazy fast.

Are there any negative parts? Well, its a dutch company but it isnt coinbase. If the whole world flocks towards it, i can see the website going down because the server can't hold that weight. This is theoretically, but those who experienced the 2017 run know that a lot of exchanges either went down (for a few hours/days) or stopped accepting new registrations because their servers couldnt handle it. I feel the same is with Bitvavo, its a small dutch exchange, not a big one.

Other negative parts? I don't think they have much nano lol. After my first purchase i was SO impressed with the speed and low cost of it, i bought more. The second time i bought, i received a message that this was going to be processed manually. For the long run i cant see this being a problem, it just means they have to buy more NANO, which will only help NANO :)

Now besides those, you do need to do a KYC, and i havent read in about any international KYC. The KYC is necessary for you to trade on the exchange. For me, i had to link my bank account to my account on Bitvavo (the same way you do it with Paypal). You can only send/receive money from/to your (linked) bank account to Bitvavo (if through IDEAL, not sure about SEPA etc). I find this acceptable to be honest for a EUROPEAN/trustworthy fiat gateway.

Payment methods (including fees):

It has been a while since i sold crypto for Euro's on the site, but it worked pretty fast. The next day, the money was sitting in my bank account :) it wasnt much though (around 100 euros), but it passed the test for me back then. Unless we go in to a massive bullrun, i prob wont be selling my NANO for fiat anytime soon anyways. I am more searching for ways to pay internet services for NANO :) Hopefully one day we can pay for everyday things with NANO, like groceries or liqueur etc.

Bitvavo has many many other coins too (besides btc,eth, xrp) like ADA, ICX, IOTA, Vechain, NEO etc. So if you want to trade your NANO with other crypto's, it is another way besides Binance (though i would still use binance for it).

THis is a huge step. For very low cost, and extremely fast speed, we (Europeans in general) have an amazing gateway towards NANO. Together with Coingate integration of NANO, and NANO amazing ease of use - i cant see any other way besides NANO becoming a smashing succes.

The only weird thing about this is Bitvavo own marketing. They did this all in silent, for reasons unknown to me since this is HUGE news for me (and a lot of Dutch/European citizens that have access to IDEAL).

Now, i have to SHILL NANO a bit more here, because i am really getting hyped once again. I feel even more positive about NANO then back in dec 2017 to be honest.

Remember guys, NANO is just at #48 in CMC. 48! While its utility is much better then 99% of ALL crypto! Infact, NANO is the ONLY usuable crypto RIGHT NOW besides maybe Eth for Dapps. Look at the marketcap of LTC, which in EVERY aspect is a worse coin then NANO. Then calculate how much a single NANO would be worth if it would have LTC marketcap... NANO has STILL SO MUCH to grow, its crazy. Its like getting Bitcoin back in 2011/2013.

Pay for your products online FASTER and more reliable AND cheaper then Paypal (conversation rate), credit card (% rate per month/year) or bank. Since V18 has come out i have been EXTREMELY impressed by NANO. So much that i have doubled my (relatively small) stack and i have (once again) started to accumulate slowly. News like this (Bitvavo) just makes me more hyped for NANO. Together with a website where i can actually buy their services with NANO - and i am planning to use it more, i cant be more positive. NANO may have had a hard time in 2018 price wise, but DAMN the team has done an amazing job with its tech throughout the bear market.

Mad props to you Colin AND your amazing team. Props to Coingate for having an amazing service too! Once NANO has been proven to scale to 1k+ (with 7K being a nicely goal) + an automatically representative node assignment through wallets (to make NANO more decentralized), i cant see nano NOT becoming a top 10 - or even a top 5 coin. As a payment coin, NANO truly knows no equal!

EDIT: a MAJOR edit here, before you guys get TOO excited. PLEASE look in to the exchange pricing too! Bitvavo might be selling (or probably IS) NANO for a higher rate then for example Binance (this is apart from maketaker fee and withdrawal fee!). It isnt the same price as you pay on Binance, with the conversion rate. So for the same EUUSD, you will get less NANO compared to Binance (if you could pay directly for it). So keep that in mind, u/dotcoml said it actually was 2%. I personally didnt bother doing the math nor do i mind a 2% fee to exchange my fiat for NANO (it still is better then credit card, and for its speed/usability, i dont mind paying 2% more compared to FIAT either), but it still is 2%. Keep this in mind!

EDIT2: other users are reporting Bitvavo actually having LOWER prices then Binance :) please check it out for yourself!

Bitcoin price may be down right now but it's adoption is definitely up

Amid the recent price fall, let's not forget all the achievements bitcoin has seen lately.
Bitcoin has a presence in almost every sector now. You can buy plane tickets, real estate properties, donate to charities, there is even an option to pay your taxes in bitcoin in some US states. Thanks to payment processors like BTCPay Server, Blockonomics, CoinGate and many more that are enabling online merchants to spread this adoption.
Soon, France will enable thousands of merchants to accept bitcoin at their stores with big names such as Foot Locker, Decathlon, Conforama, Sephora, and Intersport all ready to accept the digital currency. This is a major step forward for bitcoin and digital currency landscape as more people will have access and an opportunity to use bitcoin as a form of payment.
Bakkt launched this week opening doors for institutional investors to invest in Bitcoin.
As for Bitcoin ATM's, they have crossed almost 5659 in number and growing everyday, although 75% of which are in the North America alone.

PSA: The biggest threat to Bitcoin at the moment is BitPay

A few weeks ago BitPay made a change to their payment window, which has far reaching implications.
They do not show a Bitcoin address anymore at all, you only get a link like this: "bitcoin:?r=https://bitpay.com/i/*****************". This is called BIP70 standard. How this works from a technological side, is that your wallet no longer sends the transaction directly to the Bitcoin network, but to BitPay, and then BitPay decides whether to publish the transaction to the network, or reject it (please feel free to correct me if I am wrong and/or is I have oversimplified things). By doing this, BitPay literally becomes the gatekeeper deciding which transactions are "correct", based on political whims. This already means that BitPay invoices can be paid only with several wallets, as most wallets do not support BIP70 at the moment. While there is nothing wrong with BIP70 per se, what is wrong is that BitPay has made this mandatory.
While I do not have any solid proof that BitPay is using this to blacklist addresses / transactions at the moment, it is inevitable that sooner or later they will be forced to not only blacklist some addresses, but more likely to only accept payments from whitelisted addresses. The argument is very simple - up until now, there was no technological way to "reject" a Bitcoin transaction. Now, BitPay has implemented a method to do exactly that. Since the method already exists, the governments will no longer accept the excuse that it is impossible, and will force BitPay (and other Bitcoin payment processors) to implement blacklisting / whitelisting. The worst case scenario would be allowing to only accept payments made using centralized wallets with mandatory KYC.
This greatly hurts the fungibility of Bitcoin. The reality is, that most merchants accept bitcoins via BitPay and other Bitcoin payment processors. If I can not use my bitcoins to pay the majority of the merchants, then they are worth less than "untainted" bitcoins.
What we, as a community, can do to fight this?
  1. Develop and promote privacy / fungibility improvements for Bitcoin. In my opinion, weak fungibility is currently Bitcoin's biggest problem / risk.
  2. Boycott BitPay and any other Bitcoin payment processors implementing mandatory BIP70.
  3. Promote other, socially responsible, pro-Bitcoin payment processors. Contact the stores which use BitPay, and ask them to switch to another payment processor. Explain your reason why you will no longer purchase from them until they switch their processor.
A list of recommended Bitcoin payment processors:
CoinGate - https://coingate.com/accept-bitcoin
Coinpayments - https://www.coinpayments.net
CoinsBank - https://coinsbank.com/merchant
Why some other payment processors are not recommended:
Coinbase - did not integrate SegWit yet, purposefully spammed the network (no transaction batching) to create a transaction backlog and raise the fees: http://bitcoinist.com/mempool-coinbase-spamming-bitcoin/ , supported SegWit2x attack: http://segwit.party/nya/list/
Coinify - supported SegWit2x attack, planned to call "the chain that will have the most hash power" as BTC: https://support.coinify.com/News/NewsItem/View/47/coinify-statement-on-segwit2x-hard-fork

Here is where Nano is going (and where it's been)

It seems like a lot of people have forgotten what Nano has accomplished over the past year, or they aren't sure where it's going. Hopefully this list helps.
What's been done in the past year:
Coming soon:
Still in the pipeline:
Remember that it takes time to build a full ecosystem. Bitcoin was around for years before it got real fiat support and general awareness. Nano is doing the right things.

CoinGate enables native XRP payment option for merchants

Hello, XRP community!
When you scroll down the news, it seems like there’s never ever a dull moment for XRP community. News about xRapid project and giants like Exim bank joining the parade don’t go unnoticed. Well, we intend to add to it by offering our own contribution to the success of XRP ledger.
To start with, we are CoinGate, a payment processor that allows merchants to accept a wide variety of cryptocurrencies for their goods and services. We are here to let you know that from now on, XRP is joining our bundle of native cryptocurrencies! It is fantastic news for those who use XRP ledger, and there are two main reasons for it.
First of all, more than 4,500 merchants who avail of our payment gateway now accept XRP at their online shops! It is a very simple process - find yourself a merchant, choose to pay via CoinGate and select XRP to finalize the payment. That’s it! No hidden fees or anything like that.
Plan on traveling? Book a hotel! Bored? Buy yourself a video game, or just play one online. Does the online world scare you sometimes? VPN might help. Looks like there are plenty of things you can buy with XRP these days!
And secondly, any business can now accept XRP, among many other cryptocurrencies, as a mean of payment. All they need to do is go through a simple integration. If you’re not sure if you should actually do it, we suggest reading our article about why it is worth accepting crypto, as well as how exactly do it.
And that’s it. We hope that in the future, more and more merchants will start to embrace the blockchain technology, and accepting cryptocurrencies like XRP will become a common thing to do. This is our ultimate goal, and thus we will continue to expand our list of supported cryptocurrencies. Hopefully, you will help us out by spreading a word that you can always start accepting crypto if you wish so. It doesn’t take much effort at all!
Thank you for sharing your time and have a nice day!
CoinGate team.

NANO accepted for [STEAM/SWITCH/XBOX1/PS4]GAMES

Hi guys, i made a post at CC called "Pay with Bitcoin or 50+ altcoins for [STEAM]GAMES, SMARTPHONES, CONSOLES and more!" but i wanted to share it on this sub too. Because its mainly about NANO. Through searching a bit, ive found (on the coingate blog) that there were several digital games stores accepting crypto - including NANO.

Well since Sekiro just came out, i figure why not try it right? My previous experience with CoinGate was amazing (blazing fast). So i did.

https://www.mmoga.com/New-Products/Keys-Gamecards.html

This site sells STEAM/SWITCH/XBOX1/PS4 gamekeys and you have the option to pay with crypto, including NANO, through Coingate. While the site isnt the prettiest, and i just entered a false name/email etc. when registering, eventually paying with Coingate went great as always. I've received an email where i had toe verifiy mine, and afterwards i got the key i needed. Used it in steam and Sekiro is downloading :)

I wanted to share this one, even if it may or may not be 100% legal (it is the greymarket i think), but its just something too awesome to miss out. You might not all want to spend NANO right today (trying to shoot for the moon and all) but eventually you will. And this is a VERY nice way - for a gamer - to spend it.

Anyways you can get some cool things on the website, so it is worth checking out. Everything ofc is at your own risk here, don't be mad at me when a payment doesnt go through or the website doesnt send the key, or the key is invalid or w/e. I took the shot, and it worked for me. Thats all i can say about that.

If you want to buy other goods too (like smartphone, pretty cheap), there is this other website that only accepts bitcoin:

https://www.g2a.com/

You can always just trade your nano for bitcoin and then use it to buy something. Just keep these things in mind :) There are ofc a lot of other stores accepting bitcoin, but this one is through CoinGate - which i am beginning to become a fan of.

Ps. and people say there is no use case for NANO lol.
