PLEASE NOTE: Due to volatility in cryptocurrency markets, we have now shortened the payment window to 4 days for all Bitcoin and Litecoin orders. If you place an order and then find that you cannot pay it in 96 hours or less, then please start over with a new order once your payment is ready to send. Thank you. -MB
