I actually had no idea it assumed total anonymity. I was under the impression that Bitcoin as a method of payment does not actually void the creation of a client account within WHMCS, or whatever billing/support platform of your choice is. What does processing a client that pays with Bitcoin (or other cryptocurrency) look like from an administrative perspective?
