Some people desire privacy -- others don't. If you're in the former group, here are three ways you can mix various cryptocurrencies (with varying degrees of effort and cost) to keep your finances to yourself.

Monero is the BEST!!
But if you need to use BitCoin make sure that mix your bitcoins...I use coinmixer, It's totally reliable.
Anyway you can find more info about mixers in https://bestbitcoinmixer.org/
Thanks Amanda since I heard about Amazon working with the feds in the police screw that I just cashed in all my bitcoin for Monero and Dash and I got it for a pretty cheap price lol Orwellian Tech is what its called If you havent heard of it ughhh
I have been diligently researching a way to get Bitcoins anonymously because I want to buy some Bitcoins; however, I have had absolutely no success because the NSA admitted they monitor and store all wireless communications. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Love ur page, Ur videos are awesome!!!
I wonder if I or my purchase would still be anonymous if I first bought monero or dash and then bought bitcoin with the monero/dash? Can the bitcoin I buy trough an anonymous or privet coin be tracked back to me?
One question about mixers though. If you send 0.1 BTC to the mixer and you get 0.1 BTC back to your new address after 20 min, couldn't someone who is analysing the blockchain and watching the mixing service just find the connection between your old address and your new address by correlating the amount the old address has sent and the amount the new one has received?
Have bitcoins you made in a way you wouldn't want to tell your mama?? LOL.. I sure as heck know I did.... until I discovered my method to tumble and mix bulk coins, quickly and with complete anonymity. Quick, easy, and harmless. To do so, contact me on whatsapp at +1 9707858067
+Greg Moon It depends on Shapeshift's logs right? I suppose they could be compelled to cough them up--or be hacked. Not mentioned... buying your bitcoins with a ATM. There is a no -KYC ATM in my area (for under $1500).
Kurt Homan - The big difference is that Dash is a third party service and you have to trust that they are doing what they say to keep you anonymous, you don't know what's really happening in their servers. This also makes them a target for hackers and governments etc. Monero tries to make anonymity a part of the protocol so it's built in from the beginning and you don't have to trust others to keep you anonymous. Hopes this helps.
I have seen several people state that but if anonymous is anonymous than how can one be better than the other. In other words, is Dash fully anonymous or is it not? I am not trying to be smart or rude, I would really like to know. Thanks!
I've used the Monero method after you breifly mentioned it in a previous video, Works like charm thank you. Sending the Monero can be an issue as one of the devs told me that Monero transaction fees are based on the amount of data not the amount of funds being transfered. (They did say it's only a problem with mymonero dot com wallet)
I will be checking out the Dash method and bitmixer for sure.
Do you know anything about BTC debit cards? There isn't much info on YouTube apart from non-English videos and promotional ads.
Thanks for the help. I owe a few tips that's for sure.
Bitcoin also have applications to mix your coins wihtout trusting a 3rd party. Shufflepuff will generate and transact coins from one to other and will send it back to a new address.
NXT wallet also has a coinmixing feature on their wallet.
And I think the monero snippet was great except maybe you forgot to mention how to get their bitcoins into monero using a decentralized service like Shapeshift.
Keep up the great work. I'm learning so much. Great show. Who's the guy that needs some legal defense for fund for what?
Thinking of actually jumping in the crypto currency pool after checking the temp with my toe for a while now.
I'm thinking of getting a little bit of Dash and Bitshares and maybe some Monero. Bitcoin scares me for some reason.
I can't access themerkle.com from behind the corporate firewall here at work. Is it safe from home?
With Dash, all mixes are on chain so it could be still possible to de-anonymize the transactions. If monero is so great, but why are blocks only filled with miner and pool payouts? The tech is still sound, although I think there needs to be a more trusted release as no can audit the coin supply. ZCash will use also use ring signatures but will have far more funding, trust and publicity.
Keep up the good work Amanda and I'd love to have you on #Blocktalk again!
+฿rian "you try and come up with all these scary scenarios where the nsa would have to spend tons of money and time and political capital just to deanon a small percent of monero and DASH transactions."
That's all people like him do, they just spend their lives pondering the limitations of individuals while assuming the government acronyms are all powerful.
+Genxthis "The NSA created most encryption, so links between encryption and NSA is, in most cases, trivial. "
I bet you're one of those useful idiots who thinks the government invented the internet as well.
+฿rian This guy is why people should do their own research.The NSA created most encryption, so links between encryption and NSA is, in most cases, trivial. Luckily, Monero is opensource and you can go look at the code and see if there is a backdoor, the same as you can with Linux or any other opensource technology--it's pretty funny that you accuse me of FUD (right before you lay a steaming pile of it on my doorstep). Again, if anybody is reading this (and I doubt anyone has the patience to sift through this much youtube chatter) do your own research on privacy, ospec, and which coin offers the best path to anonymity--because if you just listen to the guy who sounds like he knows what he's talking about, you'll most likely get a load of confident BS.
+Genxthis stop spreading FUD. you try and come up with all these scary scenarios where the nsa would have to spend tons of money and time and political capital just to deanon a small percent of monero and DASH transactions. were talking about two different mixing technology that can both be exploited equally in different way. these attack vectors are not very realistic but are possible under extreme circumstances.
bytecoin would presumable be easier to trace because 1 entity (nsa/gchq?) probable controls almost all the coins and can effectively deanon most transaction right from there own system. or maybe all cryptonote coins have a backdoor or 2,3,4....
+฿rian at this point you are just trying to spread fear and distrust, as anyone can look at Monero's blockchain and see that the distribution (unlike dash and bytecoin) has been constant without the frontloading to achieve an  untraceability break. It seems you are intent on half-reading the available information to arrive at a conclusion that suites your needs--ie. shilling dash. I suggest anyone reading at this point (doubtfully anyone) go and do their own research and not to trust anyone (including myself) before using a privacy coin--it's your privacy and your responsibility to find the best methods available. I'd further say, if you don't understand ospec, don't bother, because no coin can do that for you.
It's great when you curse. You should curse more.
I also bought a t-shirt from AllthingsBTC and they're really great. Really really great.
Question for you Amanda: Which Dash wallets have darksend? Is it just Dash Core? I've been meaning to buy some Dash, and privacy is very important to me so now I have some motivation.
+The Daily Decrypt
The Dash mobile wallet has a toggle for instant-x. I am assuming that if you turn it off then you may have DarkSend. ??
DarkSend to PrivacyProtect - I like the former but as far as taking the coin "mainstream" the later is better PR. The same as Darkcoin to Dash really!
+eliterminator00 Good question. I have Dash Core on my desktop, and a Dash mobile wallet on my phone. The Core has the DarkSend, yes. I know there is an Electrum-Dash wallet, too, but as for whether it has DarkSend or not, I don't know. The mobile one does not. I believe that the next big release in Dash -- Evolution -- will be putting DarkSend in more wallets and if I understand correctly, even have DarkSend web portals. They'll also change the name to PrivacyProtect, I'm told.
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
