We’re excited to announce that we are now accepting Bitcoin payments for our VPN service. Bitcoin is a great way to pay for our service while keeping your identity private. All we need to process a Bitcoin payment is an email address that we can send your username and password to.
All About Bitcoin
If you’re new to Bitcoin then there is a bit of a learning curve. Here are some of the best Bitcoin resources that we’ve found:
- Bitcoin.it is a wiki with everything you need to know about Bitcoin.
- Coinbase is an easy to use Bitcoin wallet. Great place to get started.
- Bitpay is our Bitcoin merchant.
To create a Ghost Path VPN account with a Bitcoin payment you can go to our Pricing page and choose your plan. Then choose Bitcoin when asked. As always, we’re here to help if you run into any problems.
Ghost Path is committed to becoming the best VPN provider in the world, and part of that mission is to have servers available all across the globe. We’re continually adding new VPN server gateways. We added several more new countries since our last update, and additional gateways in existing cities.
We have added the following gateways, all in countries where we didn’t have gateways before:
- Sofia, Bulgaria
- Cape Town, South Africa
- Bangkok, Thailand
- Dublin, Ireland
We’ve also added additional gateways in Orlando, Los Angeles, and Buffalo NY.
Are there any cities and countries that you want us to add? Comment below and tell us or send us an email.
We have been busily working to grow our VPN network across the globe by continually adding new VPN gateways in new countries. So far in 2013 we have added gateways in several cities in the US and UK, as well as new gateways in Bucharest, Romania and Riga, Latvia.
Why Keep Adding Gateways
Each new gateway that we add is a new possibility. The most obvious reason for adding new gateways is to bring them geographically closer to users. The closer you are to a gateway that faster your connection should be.
Another reason is that each gateway gives you another option for where you want your traffic to originate from. If you need your traffic to appear to be from San Jose vs Los Angeles or San Diego then you’ll need the server that we have in San Jose. More gateways makes it easier to get around geographically blocked content.
We recently found an article by Erica Sadun of TUAW. We couldn’t help but love the way she so smoothly describes VPN and how it can benefit your web surfing and sharing experience. It’s always interesting to see how other industry professionals see VPN and it’s benefits. Read more

With Cyber Monday bringing in record sales for online companies, it was shocking to see just how many of those customers were using public wifi (a wireless connection without the protection of a password). Unbound Commerce reported that total revenue generated by retailers utilizing Unbound’s integrated mcommerce platform surged 410% on Cyber Monday. Suggesting that those numbers were purchases from smart phones, most people are blissfully unaware of the amount of hacking that is done through public wifi. We now live in a world where it is all too easy for hackers to track cookies of any given user to see email correspondence, Facebook passwords, and yes, bill pay logins, ultimately resulting to identity theft.
