I have an account at National Bank of Greece and would like to buy bitcoins in Greece using a pre-paid Visa Card. Can someone point out how I could do that? I could also get one from another bank if that’s necessary. I have heard about a Bitcoin ATM somewhere, but I’m unsure if that would work in my case.
I also tried blockchain, but the bank didn’t send the cash.
You can buy Bitcoin via credit card / paypal via https://xcoins.io

You cannot buy bitcoin from a greek bank account, transfer, with credit/debit card or using paypal. They have blocked all transactions due to the capital controls.
Using a prepaid card (if it’s anonymous) is not something widely accepted, because it’s not possible to see who’s the sender. That’s one of the main reasons to have some struggles.
If you have a bank account in Greece, you can easily buy Bitcoin using bank transfer (SEPA).
