Rule #1 for IPTV services is don't pay more than a month a time.

Sounds like his goal is to remain anonymous so PayPal is out of the question.

Nothing wrong paying for service with bitcoin. If you need to pay via credit card try coinbase, coinmama, virwox, etc. However the fees are higher than if you pay directly from a bank account. 

Yes that is also what I found out, so I used another option to make my payments.

 

I always read on this forum that crypto currency is the future and sooooooo much better and safer then the traditional banks......until you need to make a payment and then they all come out of the woods.

 

Talking about hypocrisy.

There is always a need to work harder on social skills if one walks in a room asking for assistance. Buying crypto isn't always cheap. So far we've had coinbase recommended twice that doesn't work in Thailand.

It works if OP have a bank account overseas or a VPN and a passport from a supported country. I opened an account on coinbasepro with a Singapore ip address and a Canadian passport but had to explain my situation to support.

give it some time. so many things in life have gone digital. it only makes sense that transactions of value follow suit. p2p payments in the coming years will be a breeze. multiple platforms all connected that are able to transact in various settlement types. instantly from anywhere to anywhere.

Block chain technology should not be confused with crypto currency which uses block chain technology.

 

I can see the advantages of block chain, I can't see advantages of crypto currency, rather disadvantages as it is pure a speculation tool.

crypto and blockchain when coupled together is a wet dream come true for those in power.

pure speculation tool hardly. there are so many different crypto's with many different use case scenarios. some crypto might be used for liquidity in a digital world. value is going digital, paper money will be gone in my lifetime (43 in a few months).

 

you can't keep printing money and expect everything to be ok. fiat is dying and there is a demand for instant digital payment. someone or something will fill that gap. change is inevitable.

There is "stablecoin" that are pegged to major currency. However, I prefer holding bitcoin since my cost of living is only going down over time. Maybe selfish and against economic theory that say money should be treated like a hot potato to stimulate the economy forever until humanity self destroy itself but it works fine for me. I buy a tons of legal stuff directly with bitcoin.

I opened a CB account from within T/L, although using my UK PP, and UK address that my UK bank account is registered to... No need of any VPN est, although it was about 2 years ago I did this, and I accept things may have now changed. 

 

Obviously I can't cash out directly to a Thai bank, but I can trade between CB coins OK, and can send CC's from my CB to any other address... eg. to a Thai based crypto exchange, and then cash out from there to my Thai bank.
