Crypto users are risking their anonymity?

To protect users’ anonymity blockchain explorer Blockchair refuses to collect personal data or share it with third parties

There is a raising doubt around anonymity of the cryptocurrencies. While interactions on blockchain seem to be private, most supporting web services (exchanges, wallets, block explorers etc.) are not.

Why should one be concerned about the privacy? Cryptocurrency companies commonly store user information, including available balances, lists of transactions and types of cryptocurrency. Web servers maintain default logs of IP addresses, the dates and times of the browsing activity and the URLs one visited. They might sell this information, publish it, share it with government agencies, or they might be hacked.

It is easy for blockchain explorers to trace the digital fingerprint that links users with addresses and transactions. That’s because a cryptocurrency address page is commonly visited by the address owner, and the transaction page is visited by the transaction parties. This data is also picked up by the web analytics tools, advertising platforms and similar third-party services.

Blockchair, a blockchain explorer for BTC, ETH, BCH, BSV and LTC, aims to protect users’ privacy and has recently published a Privacy Policy explaining security issues connected with using crypto. The block explorer does not store data, keep logs or use cookies. To ensure user anonymity Blockchair does not use any type of web analytics tools either. Anonymous aggregated data that allows to improve Blockchair’s website is the only thing that is collected.

Blockchair discovers the major ways of personal data leak and how it can be protected by other web services in its Privacy Policy.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.

比特币SV(BSV):以创纪录的水平扩容,并将保持继续

有些人认为,比特币上是不可能有大型区块的,然而比特币SV(BSV)已证实了这种观点是错误的。许多人对BSV技术有所畏惧就是因为它优于其他加密货币,所以他们试图通过个人观点出发的商业决策来干扰这个宏大的使命,但BSV现在正用先进的技术证明反对者的谬论:就在七月,BSV会将其区块上限提升至2GB(即2000兆字节!)。 身为nChain工程总监同时兼任比特币SV节点团队技术总监的史蒂夫•施德斯(Steve ...
