Anonymity in cryptocurrency

Recommended Posts

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that use cryptography to secure transactions and control new units of currency creation. Since their introduction in 2009 with the release of the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies have quickly become popular as an investment vehicle and a way to transfer money quickly and securely.

Cryptocurrencies: from investing to real life purchases

Nowadays, cryptocurrencies are not only used for investments but also for purchasing goods and services. Some major online retailers and companies already accept cryptocurrencies as official means of payment, making them available for use not only online but also in real life.

In Japan, for example, cryptocurrencies were recognised as an official means of payment in 2017. This means that more than 260,000 shops in Japan can now accept cryptocurrencies as payment for goods and services.
Cryptocurrency can be particularly useful for international transactions, as it allows money to be sent quickly and securely between countries, bypassing many of the problems associated with traditional methods of transferring money through banks.
However, when using cryptocurrency to purchase goods and services, the risks associated with the volatility of the cryptocurrency market and the possibility of fraud must be considered.

New cryptocurrency mixers: how to make money from transactions?

More and more people are using crypto-mixers to ensure the anonymity of their transactions and protect their funds. Mixers allow cryptocurrencies to be mixed between different wallets and users, making transactions difficult to distinguish and providing an additional layer of protection.

Cryptocurrency mixers were previously introduced as services that allowed users to download their bitcoins (BTC) and receive back new, 'pure' bitcoins minus some commission, typically 10-20%. This allowed users to remain anonymous, hiding the traces and origins of their cryptocurrencies.

However, a new type of mixer has recently emerged in the cryptocurrency market that allows users to make money by mixing their cryptocurrencies. On these platforms, users can load fiat money and get back more cryptocurrency at a 7% to 14% premium per transaction and receive crypto in one network and give it away in another. In this way, users earn extra income for securing other people's transactions.

This bot allows users to exchange various fiat currencies for USDT (TRC-20) at a profit of 11% over a period of 72 hours. Users can exchange over 15 different currencies, including US dollars, euros, roubles, yuan and others.

The exchange process is quite simple: the user sends their currency to the bot's wallet and a few days later receives their USDT, with the amount already increased by 11%. In doing so, the bot uses various algorithms for mixing and mixing transactions to ensure the highest level of anonymity for its clients.

Such a bot service is a great opportunity for those who want to make money from cryptocurrency without much effort. However, it is worth noting that other such bots may not be entirely safe, and users should be careful when dealing with such services. It is important to check the reputation of the service and take measures to ensure the safety of your cryptocurrency assets.

Examples of mixers that we use ourselves.

Mixers for cleaning your Crypto are recommended:

  • TornadoCas
  • Bitcoin laundry

Mixers with which you can make money:

From skepticism to active investment: how attitudes towards cryptocurrencies are changing among major players in the financial industry?

Cryptocurrencies continue to attract the attention of major financial institutions and banks, which have begun to invest in this new asset form. While many financiers and economists continue to debate whether cryptocurrencies are real investment vehicles, major players in the financial industry have already recognised their potential and are actively exploring and using them.

One of the first major banks to recognise the potential of cryptocurrencies was Goldman Sachs. In 2018, the bank launched a division that trades cryptocurrency futures on the exchange. At the same time, JP Morgan, which had previously been very sceptical about cryptocurrencies, has also taken an active interest in the topic and started developing its own cryptocurrency, JPM Coin, to be used for instant money transfers between the bank's clients.
Cryptocurrencies are also attracting attention from large investment funds, such as Grayscale Investments, which manages the world's largest Bitcoin Trust fund. In 2020, the fund attracted more than $5.7 billion in investments from institutional and retail investors.

Some large companies have also started to actively use cryptocurrencies in their operations. For example, Tesla bought $1.5 billion in bitcoins in 2021 and began accepting them as payment for its cars. At the same time, PayPal began accepting cryptocurrencies on its payment platform, opening up new opportunities for millions of users around the world.

Cryptocurrencies are also attracting attention not only from large financial institutions but also from individual investors. There are now many cryptocurrency exchanges where you can buy and sell cryptocurrencies.

The anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions can vary depending on the specific cryptocurrency you use and the methods you use. While some cryptocurrencies provide a degree of privacy and anonymity, it is important to note that achieving complete anonymity can be difficult. Most cryptocurrencies operate on a pseudonymous basis. Transactions are recorded in a public ledger, called a blockchain, using cryptographic addresses instead of personal information. However, these addresses are usually not directly linked to a real identity, unless someone voluntarily discloses this information. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC), are specifically designed to increase privacy and anonymity. I read on https://deeplab.com/darkweb/anonymous-sudan-launches-cyberattacks-on-middle-eastern-news-outlets-expands-target-list-with-four-additional-names that some people use this anonymity as a cyber attack.

    • It was a blockbuster number yesterday for the ADP private payrolls, showing 278,000 jobs opened in May, while forecasts had been for 170,000.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023 IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor suggests a similar upside surprise could see almost 300,000 jobs created under the non-farm payroll count with estimates for 190,000 job creations. The unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. (Video Transcript) NPFs: what to expect Could yesterday's strong private payrolls number from the ADP reading give us an insight into the potential upside risk to today's non-farm payrolls? That report from ADP yesterday showed 278,000 jobs opened in May - forecasts had been for 170,000. Now the NFP expectations, 190,000 job creations are forecast for the month of May proportionately using that ADP surprise. That would mean an upside reading for NFPs close to 300,000. Why the increase? Now, the unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. Why is that rising? When you've got that rise in the number of job creations, the unemployment rate is not taking the same data that the jobs numbers themselves are being produced from average hourly earnings. We're looking there for that to go up 0.3% month-on-month, 4.4% year-on-year, still below the rate of inflation. Now, this chart shows the unemployment rate back to pre-Covid-19 levels. It's clear that jobs have been created at an appreciable rate and this alongside a relatively strong GDP number and inflation coming down, there may yet be a soft landing for the US economy. But if the Federal Reserve (Fed) does continue to raise rates, things may get a little bit more sticky for the economy and a little bit more difficult to predict. This is a comparison of fed funds rates and US consumer price inflation (CPI) since January 2021. So you can see here the rate at which the US central bank has been piling the pressure on the monetary markets with that rise to five and a quarter percent. And at the same time, the CPI number is coming down, which is a good thing, but it's still not down to the 2% level, 4.9% is a long way away still from the 2% target. So the Fed is entitled still to have an excuse to raise interest rates. US dollar basket Let's take a look at what's been happening with the US dollar basket. Yesterday, we saw a pullback coming through as we saw money going into risk assets because of that rubber stamping from the Senate or the vote in the Senate to approve the budget that's now gone for the presidential seal. EUR/USD And we've seen a second day in a row of losses or the euro for the dollar basket as far as the euro/dollar is concerned, bouncing away from that 76.4% retracement. And I think now, you will have been stopped out if you were short on this, you would have been stopped out on this and hopefully you would have got some profits on the way down. So that's where things are ahead of non-farm payrolls out today at 13:30 UK time. And we will be live on the IG platform at 13:25 today.
    • Escalating inflation and burgeoning wages prime the stage for a probable 25bp rate increase from the Reserve Bank of Australia in the upcoming meeting.   Source: Bloomberg   Inflation Wage Consumer price index Reserve Bank of Australia Interest rates Australia  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023  The Reserve Bank Board of Australia is scheduled to meet on Tuesday, the 6th of June, at 2.30 pm in what is expected to be another line ball decision. Last month, the RBA sent ripples through the market, lifting the cash rate by 25bp to 3.85%. Marking the RBA’s eleventh rate increase in a cycle starting last May, it amounted to a cumulative 375bp hike. With inflation having likely peaked, the RBA concluded it remained too high, warranting an additional hike to realign inflation with the target. Governor Lowe's standpoint In a recent statement, Philip Lowe, Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, underscored the significance of ushering inflation back on target in a sensible timeframe, hence justifying the Board's decision to implement another uptick in interest rates. "The importance of returning inflation to target within a reasonable timeframe underscored the board's judgement that a further increase in interest rates was warranted." Maintaining its tightening stance, the RBA indicated its willingness to instigate additional rate hikes, contingent on the economy and inflation's trajectory. Lowe emphasised the Board's vigilance over global economic developments, trends in household spending, and inflation and labour market forecasts. "Continued attention will be paid to developments in the global economy, trends in household spending and the outlook for inflation and the labour market." RBA cash rate chart     Source: RBA Market forecasts and the RBA's decisions In the wake of the RBA’s May Board meeting, wages, employment, and retail sales data have come out softer than expected. Bucking the trend of milder data, the Monthly CPI indicator exceeded expectations at 6.8% (vs 6.4% exp). The core measure of inflation, the trimmed mean, lifted from 6.5% to 6.7%. As the monthly CPI indicator is relatively new and this month excluded around 35% of the items in the basket (35% of the basket is surveyed in the second or third month of the quarter), its credibility is less than quarterly inflation numbers. Nonetheless, the re-acceleration in the Monthly CPI indicator will not sit well with an RBA looking for firm signs that inflation is cooling after its record-breaking run of rate hikes. Also, likely to be figuring in the RBA’s considerations, the Fair Work Commission handed down its Annual Wage Review for 2022-2023 this morning. The decision to increase award and minimum wages by 5.7% exceeded market expectations of 5%, came below the 7% the ACTU claimed, and surpassed the 3.5% employers sought. The RBA's predicament and likely decision The RBA has highlighted its focus on wage growth and subdued productivity in recent communiques. “Unit labour costs are also rising briskly, with productivity growth remaining subdued.” Cognizant of the RBA’s predicament of cooling inflation while keeping the economy on an “even keel”, the Australian interest rate market is pricing a ~25% chance of an RBA rate hike next week. However, due to the hotter than expected Monthly CPI indicator and the higher-than-expected rise in the award and minimum wages at the Annual Wage Review, we think the RBA will elect to raise rates by 25bp to 4.10% when it meets on Tuesday.   Source: ASX Summary The Board of the Reserve Bank of Australia has a meeting on the calendar for Tuesday, June 6th, at 2:30 pm. In a decision that's likely to be finely balanced, we anticipate the RBA will opt for a 25bp hike, pushing rates to 4.10%
    • WTI recoups recent losses while gold, silver on track for first weekly advance Outlook on WTI, gold and silver as US debt ceiling bill is signed off and US dollar plummets. Source: Bloomberg  Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023  WTI recoups some of this week’s losses ahead of OPEC+ meeting WTI, which dropped by over 7% this week amid US debt ceiling negotiations and as data out of China showed a mixed picture, is regaining some of its lost ground as a US default has been averted and as OPEC+ meets this weekend. Despite WTI rallying back to last Thursday’s low at $71.02, it is expected to end the week in negative territory. Potential upside targets for next week can be seen along the April-to-June downtrend line at $72.68 and at the mid-May high at $73.30. Minor support comes in at Wednesday’s $69.73 high and more significant support at the late May $67.12 low. Source: ProRealTime Gold recovery off six-month uptrend line has further to run The price of gold is on track for its first weekly positive close in a month and is trying to reach the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) and April support line, now because of inverse polarity resistance line, at $1,991 to $1,994 per troy ounce. As risk-on sentiment is back in play due to the US debt ceiling bill having been passed by both US Houses, the gold price may soon lose upside momentum. If so, the mid-April low at $1,970 is likely to be revisited. Below it lies the mid-May low at $1,952. Source: ProRealTime Silver set for first weekly advance in a month The silver price is set to see its first weekly advance, following three consecutive weeks of lower prices, in bouncing off its two-month low at $22.68 per troy ounce. The Caixin manufacturing index out on Thursday pointed to expansion in the Chinese manufacturing sector, opposite to official figures released on Wednesday, and helped the price of silver to rise. The 19 May high at $24.01 is now within reach, a rise above which would eye the 55-day SMA at $24.30. Further up the late April low can be spotted at $24.50. Minor support can be found at the 18 May trough at $23.33. Source: ProRealTime
