DeBitpay Directory - list of places to spend Bitcoin without Bitpay

Quote
Bitpay has proved many times (https://debitpay.directory/anti-bitcoin/) that they are anti-Bitcoin. Everyone can greatly contribute to Bitcoin just by not using Bitpay.

If you're a merchant, then switch to BTCPay Server. When using Bitpay you share with them not only a slice of payments, but also data about transactions and customers. This data then sold/shared with chainalysis (serving government agencies) and probably others. Also both you and your customers become guinea pigs for their various anti-Bitcoin experiments, such as an attempt to force everyone to use their BIP70 payment protocol.

As a buyer, switch to vendors accepting Bitcoin without Bitpay (https://debitpay.directory/). When buying something from a merchant you tell other players on the market that you're ok about HOW that merchant does the business. And if there is some issue left without your reaction, it becomes a widespread norm. Buyers are the crucial link in the chain. If a direct Bitcoin payment will be a requirement to get your bitcoins, then merchants will have to either provide that or be replaced by others and leave the market.

I'm not a fan of bitpay but I actually prefer payment protocol (which they appear to use exclusively AFAICT). Can anyone share why the community for the most part doesn't embrace it? It doesn't seem to me that anything comparable exists.

Also I like being able to buy gift cards w/bitcoin -- most of those use bitpay, right? Some of the ones that don't use bitpay also don't offer a discount for paying w/bitcoin.

What other payment protocols can you recommend at this level?
