It is an inconvenience if you want to stay 100% anonymous. There is no doubt. If you don't care about 100% purchase anonymity coinbase works great. I've done coinbase for when I didn't care and I've done localbitocins when I wanted the anonymity. I think bitcoin is more for the receiver. In this case they need 100% anonymity. So this will allow them that. I'd like them to post a bitcoin address now so we can get them some funds in the mean time while they are sorting it all out.
