Monero Merchant of the Week

AirVPN Logo is a VPN provider based in Italy. They contribute to FOSS by having created and currently maintaining a GUI for OpenVPN called Eddie, and accept Monero for all of their services. They are fairly highly rated by That One Privacy Site, although every user is encouraged to do their own research to find something that fits their needs.

Check back next week for another merchant that accepts Monero for their goods and services.
