Re: The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency thread

Cryptocurrency blockchains do not hold personally identifying data - but many of the exchanges that handle the transactions do so there are ways of finding out who sent what if you dig deep enough and the person hasn't made efforts to hide their tracks using mixers. This can already be done without ...
