How to Buy Bitcoin Without ID

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Trading

  • Somewhat private transaction, depending on the deal you make
  • Customizable (what, where and how much are up to the two parties)
  • You need to really trust the other person
  • Often you must meet them face-to-face in questionable locations
  • There’s no guarantee of safety or security
  • The other person might scam you or steal your money

Real-World Trading

  • No fees to buy or sell
  • No ID or credit cards required — just bitcoin
  • Could be fun
  • This requires some work and isn’t directly “buying”
  • Time commitment is required to source items and create listings
  • It will likely take some time to sell your stuff once listed
  • You have to ship out physical items once they sell
  • You have to install the software on your computer

Bitcoin ATMs (BTMs)

  • Buy or sell crypto with cash
  • Quick, easy and secure transaction
  • You only need a mobile phone number (ID for higher amounts only)
  • You don’t have to deal directly with another person
  • Much safer than trading P2P
  • Rates may be slightly higher than online exchanges
  • There might not be one near you (but more are being installed all the time)
  • The amount you can buy without ID is limited
