[Solved] Error Paying With BitPay

So I just tried paying for my domain name on Namecheap.com with bitcoin, but I encountered a few problems at first. After trying for several days, finally I managed to renew my domain with bitcoin! Yay!

So here are the problems I encountered and how I solved them:

1. My country is blocked by BitPay
Solution: Use VPN

I live in Indonesia, and at the time of this writing it is blocked by BitPay. If your country is blocked too, you can install a free VPN plugin or mobile app.

The free VPN that I used was Windscribe (aff link), I installed it on my PC and my android phone. It works well and it's free, but you can always upgrade if you want more bandwidth.

2. Cannot Scan the QR Code on the screen
Solution: Pay directly through mobile phone wallet

So I already sent my bitcoin to Mycelium wallet on my phone (it is one of the wallets that support BitPay's payment protocol), but when I wanted to top up my Namecheap account, I couldn't scan the BitPay QR Code.

I tried this for a few days, but still couldn't do it. I tried to change the brightness of the screen, and I tried to pay manually from Mycelium by pasting the payment URL (that starts with bitcoin:?r=https://), but I got the following error message:

Invalid bitcoin address

I got so frustrated, but then on another day I tried again, by renewing and paying my Namecheap domain directly through my mobile phone, instead of from my laptop. And guess what? 

It worked!

So I installed the Windscribe app (aff link) and ran it, then I just renewed my Namecheap domain through my mobile phone. 

From my mobile phone, I clicked "open in wallet" and then paid. Problem solved.
So that's it.

If you think that this article is helpful, I won't mind if you'd like to send me some btc here 😀:

Epica, Anti-Islam?

I'm not going to waste your time here.

According to them, the short answer is "no".

Yep, that's true. Epica don't have anything against Islam or any other religions. According to some interviews, they are just against extremism.

However, honestly as a Muslim I think the use of the call for prayer and the Shahada in "Fools of Damnation" and "Seif Al Din" is just not right. The songs are great, but I really hope they will remove the call for prayer and Shahada parts to respect their Muslim fans.

Well, that's just my personal opinion.

Here are some interviews confirming that Epica is not an anti-Islamic band:

"Mark : Funny thing is, there’s a Lebanese girl who collaborated with me on Mayan’s album : Some of the lyrics were influenced by her political views. I’d like to point out that she’s a Muslim, because some accuse me of being biased against Muslims, and that’s completely ridiculous."

If you have, but you still want to learn more, here are some simple steps on how to attract wealth, as revealed in Joe Vitale and Steve G. Jones’ Wealth Trigger Reloaded audio program.

The key here is to focus on attracting money so that you will be able to easily find ideas to make more money. However, it doesn’t mean that you have to be obsessed about making money. It means that you have to…

Miracle Mind Method - Not Miraculous at All

Review by Elsa Sakina, July 13, 2012
I was immediately attracted to the neat sales page graphic, and when the video played, I was glued. Plus, I saw that some of my Facebook friends "liked" it.

Maybe you felt the same way when you landed on the sales page.

The video presentation was delivered attractively, it's not just some guy reading a text on the screen.

Considering how professional the physical appearance of the website was, I expected Miracle Mind Method to be as great.

But I was wrong.

After I went to the download area and checked out the products, here are some facts I can give you:

1. What is this product about?

Miracle Mind Method is an information product. It is basically about using the "power of your mind" to raise your consciousness and achieve your goals.

2. Who is the creator?

It's Chris Cains, but honestly I couldn't really find who he really is. He didn't even put his photo.

It's stated that he is a "success coach"…
