Bitcoin Buying Options – Cryptocurrency ATMs Seattle ...

Advice on first purchase & anonymity...

Hello,
Been wanting to jump into the fray with Bitcoin for a time, but have been dragging my feet. Now that we've got a bit of a dip going, I'm circling back to this.
I'm not sure how things worked back in the old days, but I guess it was far easier to acquire bitcoin anonymously than it is now? I'd prefer to make my purchase as anonymous as possible.
I've got a mycelium wallet set up, I've got my seed words backed up, and now I'm just looking for a way to purchase.
I've tried the CoinSource atms and CoinStar machines, both of which require a scan of an ID and personal info to make a purchase. Not ideal. Also, I'd heard that some of them give you a printed paper wallet that you can transfer into your own wallet, and that the funds don't eventually show up.
The Mycelium Wallet has a P2P option for buying from locals, but none of them want to meet in person due to COVID, and most of them are wanting to do this virtually with an exchange of gift cards, which seems scammy.
Also, I'd heard that with some exchanges, you have to hold the coin in their wallet, rather than transfer it into your own cold storage wallet, so it's possible that you aren't fully in possession of the funds, and if the exchange went under or was hacked, your funds would go with it.
Can anyone offer suggestions about how to buy with cash, or to use some sort of exchange while giving up minimal personal information? I'm in Seattle, if that's relevant to any advice givers.
Any help is appreciated.
Thx!

Bitcoin ATM

Are there any Bitcoin ATM’s in the downtown Seattle area? I will be visiting during New Year’s and would like to buy some Bitcoin. I live in Hawaii, where online sites like Coinbase are restricted due to local laws. I heard one by Westlake Center in downtown Seattle was removed? What else is available? Thanks.

PSA Warning! Global MLM OneCoin / OneLife scheme in WA

Hey Seattle and WA redditors. While is comical, this post is meant to warn others of this global MLM company attempting to scam local citizens. This is a long post because of the subjects complexity. If your enjoying a gorgeous day that's precious to this season. Bookmark and come back :)
TLDR: OneCoine/Onelife is a global MLM scam using deceptive practices and has already been reported by other countries. FREE EDUCATION ON BITCOIN AND BLOCKCHAIN AT THE BOTTOM.
User black_ish reported in Bitcoin about his family investing in OneCoin and being locked into it for $100k. I've also found a Craigslist post for OneCoin in Seattle. Before this scheme claims more around my area. I'll help describe it and at the same time try educate others on cryptocurrency/digital currency, and blockchains.
You might have heard of a growing technology called Bitcoin and its blockchain features or you might be introduced to it soon. You might already know someone that does mine it or works with. I personally mine Bitcoin and Ethereum. I've found over the years Washington is home to not only large digital currency mining operations but also businesses in the ecosystem forming around it. Such as KeepKey that is based in Kirkland, they make Bitcoin wallets. If your at the UW campus you can find a Bitcoin ATM in the startup hall. Microsoft accepts it as a payment option and has made a partnership with Ethereum to explore its distributed ledger technology that differs from Bitcoin.
This is to illustrate how open-source blockchain ledgers have been embrassed in such a short amount of time. Bitcoin's success and failings is being utilized to hype many fraudulant operations and projects as well. The biggest one still around is OneCoin/Onelife. Mainly due to them restricting withdraws from the system and obscuring the source code of OneCoin's blockchain.
The OneCoin & OneLife scheme.
OneCoin was started by Ruja Ignatova in Bulgaria. The main business of Onecoin Ltd. is to sell "education" material for trading and cryptocurrency. That's loosely quoted because they've been caught plagarising published sources and branding it under them in their training packages. With each educational package they sell you, you get OneCoin tokens to be assigned to "mine". The "mining OneCoin" videos I've found like this 'Submit Tokens to Start Mining OneCoin after a split and 'How do I mine OneCoin' indicate to me it isn't mining the same way Bitcoin does. Bitcoin mines through a Proof-of-work and the outputs you get from ming are different from regular outputs with open coirse coins. OneCoin looks to be doing Proof-of-stake mining, the more coins you have the more you make over time by staking (locking them into the network) to get a higher return later on. This distinction in protocol is never mentioned but marketed as a superior blockchain to Bitcoins.
Speaking of OneCoin's blockchain it doesn't make a lot of sense. Videos on OneCoin's blockchain with numbers in it, gives odd outputs compared to the first POS coin, Peercoin. Additionally the section that is stating "CURRENT BLOCK IS MINING FROM" is a cycle of repeating hexidecimal code in the background. It is technical jibberish meant to fake the actual technical process of real mining.
I wanted to go over the technical details of this scheme first because it aims to confuse people into believing that there is a value in this OneCoin blockchain, more specifically Dr. Ruja Ignova's coin. The reason why its rolling through the United States and your hearing about it more is because of the recent announcement of "retiring this blockchain" and starting a new blockchain in October of this year. Yes economic majors you heard that correctly. Dr. Ruja Ignatova is promising to double all OneCoin's on the October reboot of OneCoin, regardless of the account. Those package names and prices should also be alarming to most.
OneCoin & OneLife around the globe.
How OneCoin grew is with big, theatrical events, always hyping the OneCoin's blockchain and showing people a private exchange, xcoinx, that shows OneCoin as a tradable coin second to Bitcoin. The exchange isn't open, since 2015, to anyone. It is used to make an artificial claim that it is a global competitor coin. Here is an actual market cap site showing the real top 10 currently traded coins, coinmarketcap.com. OneCoin cannot be traded on any exchange. A basic rule most of the exchanges abide by is the coin has to be open-source to be traded. Each exchange has different standards but open-source is a constant between them all.
Your welcome to find the long OneCoin/Onelife event videos held in Dubai and China. They showcase how they utilize high productive tricks to facilitate real facts about the packages and blockchain that I've gone over.
Another way OneCoin's membership grew is repackaging the blockchain or private payment system. Hence the reason why I'm warning about the rebrand through the US. In Zhongshan, China a group attempted to bring members to their OneCoin hierachy through calling it "Vicat Credits". If you cannot translate the page from your browser or cannot read. The fifth picture in the article shows the OneCoin brand usage.

The Direct Selling Association in Norway wanrined against OneCoin as well.

OneCoin suspend Mastercard approvals & withdrawls from the failed Mastercard partnership. Members were also arrested.
Message to Dr Ruja Ignatoca Onecoin from X Onecoin Top Leader & host Imi Shah. This video is about a OneCoin promoter being locked out of his account and froze id's with no reason given. It illustrates the point the OneCoin system can shutoff your account without recourse.
Deceptive youtube titles attempting to associate successful people to the OneCoin brand.
BillGates clickbate - 1 and Billgates clickbate - 2. Both videos use the same video footage from an actual interview with Bill Gates being excited with blockchain technology. Hello Mr.Gates - thisisbillgates or whomever monitors the account. I'm sure the video footage was not referring to OneCoin's privatized blockchain.
Richard Branson clickbate. Hello Mr. Branson - TheRichardBranson or whomever monitors the account. I'm pretty sure Mr Branson wasn't implying that OneCoin was going to replace Bitcoin.
Both Mr. Gates and Mr. Branson likeness can be found in a recent video as well. OneCoin Latest Presentation July 2016 Best Explanation Full Update during the 11min mark. The next slide where you see Dr. Ruja Ignatova on the cover of Forbes is already controversial, didn't happen, and your welcome to search for it.
These are examples of how OneCoin members and promoters attempt to decieve the public.
Congratulations making it this far. Now comes the good part on how we can help each other.
If you know of any free legal sources to consult with users like black_ish please post them! There are probably others that need the links as well. The details on what's been experienced and how money in being locked into this MLM sounds very wrong. The promoters usually open a LLC around the area they plan to promote in.
!!Free Blockchain education!!
Since OneCoin/Onelife/OneAcademy is pretending educate others at a very high cost. I think the best idea is to educate others and let them decide what coin or blockchain they want to particpate on.
