How to Buy Smart Drugs with Bitcoin

By Jonathan Roseland

I'm not a doctor, medical professional, or trained therapist. I'm a researcher and pragmatic biohacking practitioner exercising free speech to share evidence as I find it. I make no claims. Please practice skepticism and rational critical thinkingYou should consult a professional about any serious decisions that you might make about your health. Affiliate links in this article support Limitless Mindset - spend over $150 and you'll be eligible to join the Limitless Mindset Secret Society.

I see a trend of polarization and demonization of those who aim to compete aggressively. Our who is John Gault society, steadily marching towards the world foretold in Idiocracy and 1984, seems increasingly keen on inventing witches to hunt. I foresee a public backlash against Biohackers.

Biohacking is antiestablishmentarianism starting on a biological level. It's naive to think that our movement which empowers the individual by hacking happiness and productivity doesn't present a threat to the powers that be. If you share a little of my paranoia on this issue I encourage you to start paying for your smart drugs with Bitcoin.

A lot of people who are into smart drugs and Biohacking are Internet Gangsters who are also into using the block-chain based digital currency Bitcoin. It's a pretty natural overlap that people who are kind of hacking the financial system and choosing personal sovereignty by using Bitcoin are also interested in high leverage control of their own biology.

Convert Cryptocurrency into Neurotransmitters

First of all, there are several credible vendors of smart drugs, Nootropics, or anti-aging health supplements directly accepting Bitcoin. Listed alphabetically... 

 Do Not Age

Offers a remarkable range of health supplements, longevity enhancers, and anti-aging agents. I've featured them as a recommended Limitless Mindset vendor as they offer some rarefied longevity enhancers, like NMN - the epigenetic vitamin. And importantly they actually prove the quality of their products by publishing 3rd party certificates of analysis.

Powdered Nootropic BitcoinThese guys are based out of Spain. It looks like they accept Bitcoin for dozens of different Nootropics and supplements. What I like about them is that they almost exclusively sell the highest quality Pharmaceutical Grade smart drugs and they have certificates of analysis (COAs) verifying this. They do specialize in powdered brain supplements, which you will need to measure out when you take them. They come in very utilitarian no-frills packaging and since they are powdered they will not taste very good. They offer Nootropics like

  • Noopept
  • Pramiracetam
  • Aniracetam 
  • IDRA-21
  • Tianeptine


ModafinilXL is, I think, the most credible vendor on the Internet of Modafinil and ArmodafinilThis is the biggest digital Modafinil pharmacy online. I call it the biggest because they have over 15 different kinds of Modafinil. ModafinilXL is probably the best value source of Modafinil on the internet. You are going to want to do your research on Modafinil before taking it. About a third of Biohackers don't like it, yet it is often the preferred smart drug of Wall Street traders, Silicon Valley programmers, and elite combat pilots in the Air Force. Modafinil costs between $2 - $5 daily. They offer a generous discount if you use crypto and you can pay directly on their website with Bitcoins as easily as you can with a credit card.
Category: Vendors

 Nootropics Depot

One of the top American sources of Nootropic capsules and powders. They stand out because they manufacture and test their products in-house, posting their certificates of analysis right on their product pages. They accept Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin. In 2020 they kicked me out of their affiliate program because I do well-researched content about the science and evidence behind the Nootropics and supplements they sell. It's disappointing that the regulatory environment in the USA is compelling manufacturers to forsake affiliates who work tirelessly to educate about empowering health. Nonetheless, I recommend them because of their commitment to quality assurance!

 Pure Nootropics

As their name implies these guys are a source of high-purity, COA-verified Nootropics. They offer mostly capsuled Nootropics. I used their Caffeine+L-Theanine stack, Oxiracetam, Coluracetam, Piracetam, and Aniracetam and was pleased with the results.


rupharma 88 1482438184Based in Moscow offers some unique Nootropics and performance enhancers. They are an option for Europeans in countries that have authoritarian restrictions against smart drugs; particularly the Racetams and Modafinil family.

  • ships from Russia to the US and UK.
  • ships from the EU to other EU countries where it's usually difficult to receive Nootropics.

Pharmacological categories offered are...

  • NMDA Biohacks like Cerebrolysin & Semax
  • Peptides
  • Male enhancers
  • HGH and testosterone

Other Nootropic vendors accepting Bitcoin

The more credible ones that I have experience with are above, the ones below I can't recommend as enthusiastically...

Health Ranger StoreThis is a (very) American source of clean supplements, health foods, prepping supplies, and survivalist gear. - Based in Poland, serves Europeans Racetams, Modafinil, and some other common Nootropics. Many of their products are COA-verified. They offer a 10% discount on cryptocurrency payments and free shipping with an $80 minimum purchase.

Nootropix - Based in Abu Dhabi, offering purity-tested Nootropics to the Emirates.

Now there may be a smart drug you want to use that is not for sale for Bitcoins. Like the Adaptogens; Rhodiola Rosea, Eleuthero, and Schisandra Chinensis which I recommend highly to everyone.

These herbs are demonstrated in human studies to have great long-term anti-aging benefits. They are effective short-term performance enhancers. And they are pretty cheap compared with the Racetams and Modafinil.

It's surprisingly easy, fast, and cheap to convert your Bitcoins into dollars or Euros that you can spend on smart drugs, especially if you have a Paypal account, it can take just a few minutes.

  1. Head over to, create an account and verify it with 2-factor authentication to keep your Bitcoins safe, which should take of about 5 minutes.
  2. Add some Bitcoins to your LocalBitcoins wallet, approximately as much as you need to purchase whatever Nootropics you need cash for. This may take as much as 10-15 minutes for the Blockchain to confirm the transfer.
  3. Select Sell Bitcoins and you'll see a number of private traders who you can deal with, some are even willing to deal in small amounts of $5-$20.
  4. Check the current BTC to USD exchange rate and choose a trader that will buy your Bitcoin for a fair price. Sometimes you can even find traders who will buy your BTC for more than the current exchange rate. However, usually, I find that for $100 cash I'm paying about $1-3 as a combination of escrow fees, transfer fees, and the trader's fee.
  5. Ideally, you want to select a trader with the little green dot by their name, indicating that they are online now, usually, these guys will send cash to your Paypal account within just a few minutes.

No Paypal If you don't have a Paypal account there's also the option of just getting a cash transfer to your bank account. I'm not a big fan of wire transfers, they seem to take a lot of time and sometimes your money metaphorically gets lost in cyberspace for days, while you wait on hold to talk with unhelpful customer service employees at the bank to try to figure out where your money is!
I suggest getting an internal bank transfer. You'll notice that LocalBitcoins can search by traders that are in your geographic area, if you search by Transfers with a specific bank, you can often find another trader who has an account with the same bank as you, assuming you have a bank account with a popular local bank.
Transfers between two account holders with the same bank are often near-instantaneous and in my experience a whole lot more reliable! You'll get digital cash fast and will be set to metaphorically swipe your credit card and order online all those sexy Nootropic molecules you've been salivating over!
Amazon gift cards? You may notice that LocalBitcoins also offers the option to exchange Bitcoins for Amazon Gift Cards. At least in the US, Amazon has a pretty amazing selection of Nootropics along with Biohacking gear and food products worth trying.

I know what some of the more cryptographically adroit might be thinking: Bitcoin is NOT a privacy coin!

That's true, if you've ever shared your BTC wallet address publicly your BTC transactions may not be as private as you would like them to be - still better than buying smart drugs will ye' old legacy financial system issued credit card though!

Even better though would be using the Monero, the most popular and secure privacy coin. Here on MarketplaceGOLD, you can see which Nootropics/Health supplements vendors accept XMR.

30-minute Biohacking consultation is included if you invest at least...

We can get on Skype or the phone and I will do my damnedest to answer whatever questions you have not been able to find good answers for just by Googling.

JR Pig SkypeI'll also mention that I accept Bitcoin for my Biohacking coaching/consulting

My rate is $125/hourly. It's kind of expensive but there seem to be two categories of people that it really ROIs for.
1) The first is people that are career superstars; they are high-performing professionals and are highly compensated for their expertise. Yet, they have a biological skeleton in the closet that holds them back from being as productive as they could be. They have some very private issue; it could be an addiction, it could be some rare condition, it could be that they are productivity rockstars that can work intensely for weeks or months but then they have sporadic episodes of crippling depression.

2) The second group is people that have some debilitating inability to get ahead in life. They read self-help books or watch inspirational videos, but they completely lack the motivation to work on anything for more than a few days or weeks. It may be that they just have crippling brain fog, lack of self-control, social anxiety, or the ability to form memories. Biohacking can often be ideal for these kinds of people because Biohacking can be a real shortcut to motivation and focus.

When a person comes to me that falls into one of these two groups, it almost always takes at least an hour for me to understand their issue and make some nuanced and specific recommendations along with coming up with accountability and motivational mechanisms and a habit-based lifestyle plan that works for them in the short term and long term.
