Looking at Bitchute...

...and when it comes to their superchats and such, I don't know what I'm looking at.

 I'm a Subscribestar member, so I can theoretically sync both channels, but the whole affair seems to revolve around crypto currencies. Now I am assured by all the smartest people in the room that cryptocurrencies* are the only secure thing in this uncertain age and only statists and luddites show skepticism towards them. Sadly, I'm not particularly smart and I'm  a history major which has left me with an irrational fear of tulips.

There is a Pay-Pal option, but Pay-Pal has been in the demonetization business of late.

Perhaps more troubling is the fact that at the bottom of the above linked page, SubscribeStar has an address that is not in Russia, but on Airstrip One.  And...the fact that this is worrisome; the notion that Jolly Old England is not a step up from Russia regarding freedom of speech (and arguably the opposite)  is a measure of how crazy the times we live in are.

But I digress...

Does anyone have any insights into the security and effectiveness of, say Bit-Backer, CoinPayments and/or similar services?

*My spell-check doesn't like either of those spellings.

1 I have spent the last few months trying to actively use bitcoin, and have yet to find a way to do it that doesn't make me want to run screaming from the service I'm contemplating and actively considering warning all my friends and family that the service is clearly a fraud.

2 Imminent death of cryptocurrency predicted: the Coinstar machines installed in all the grocery stores I frequent now have big signs saying turn your spare change into bitcoin. Seriously, it's tulips all the way down.

3 From what I have read (no first-hand experience), it would be best to use cryptocurrency only as a secure means of transferring funds, and to convert it to your local government-backed currency as soon as possible.
