I found this interesting service at bitlaunch.io that allows you to spin up a VPS at DigitalOcean, VULTR and Linode.

And pay with multiple cryptocurrencies:

  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • Bitcoin Cash
  • Ripple
  • Dash
  • Litecoin
  • Monero
  • Ethereum Classic
  • NEO

You only need an email address to sign up.

There is a server limit of two when you start out but as time goes along that limit will increase.

And there is two-factor authentication available.

You do pay a bit of a premium over the normal rate for say DigitalOcean which is $5 for their cheapest VPS but is $8 through Bitlaunch. But again, you only need an email address and you can pay with cryptocurrency. So there is some anonymity here.

It will be interesting to see if the service gets abused and how the operators will control it.

Either way, it’s an interesting solution if you’re looking to spin up a VPS and provide only minimal information.
