If a month-long subscription is paid in Bitcoin to an .onion site using Tor browser, how does that site still recognize/identify the same anonymous user when the return in subsequent sessions, given that Tails OS wipes the computer clean of any previous encounter with that site, as well as erases its accounting of the bitcoin wallet used to pay the subscription?

(If in some cases) no username or password set-up seems to accompany these paid subscriptions, Isn't there a risk of the site not recognizing the returning subscriber and barring access the next day, because they scrubbed their system per session, and therefore forfeiting their subscription prematurely?

If no login/password is implemented in any form, then it is 100% scam.

  • but in the case that a login and password is registered, accompanied by a (returned) confirming transaction on the blockchain, whose amount is a value equal to the PIN code they assigned the registrant, then the bitcoin subscription can be trusted? that is, the username and password chosen by the registrant is indefinitely put into a database for future log-ins from (by Tor's nature) anonymous locations?

  • Any transaction is based on trust. It is your choice. For me it looks very sketchy to asingn PIN from returned transaction. It is counterintuitive to send you money back instead of writing 10 lines code to generate PIN serverside.
