The Ultimate Bitcoin Privacy Guide

This is the ultimate guide to Bitcoin Privacy.

Learn how to buy bitcoins anonymously and securely!

How to spend it without worrying, and more!

Of course, we'll show you how to buy the best VPN anonymously, however, the same process can be used to anonymously purchase pretty much any product that accepts Bitcoins. Do note, however, that physical products need to be delivered to a physical address and/or be collected in person.

This is an updated version of a guide I originally published on this website back in 2013. Since then, many things have changed. The value of Bitcoin has shot through the roof, well-known trading websites such as Mt. Gox have closed down, and much more. In some places, you can now even buy Bitcoins from ATM machines!

What Is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency. It is a decentralized and open source virtual currency that operates using peer-to-peer (P2P) technology (much as BitTorrent and Skype do).

Like traditional money, you can trade Bitcoin for goods or services (such as a VPN subscription) and exchange it for other currencies. Unlike traditional currencies, however, there is no “middleman,” such as a state-controlled bank.

    Just wondered when you would use a mixer, Ive read about having intermeadiate and final wallets but I’m not sure on it. I have an electrum wallet, would I need to create another electrum wallet to send the mixed bitcoins to? Or is that not possible

    I really like your work, and appreciate it. Your articles are always well thought out, clearly presented, and explained with facts and logical reasoning . Thanks. I think I may be a bit pedantic; you state "For maximum privacy you should create a new wallet each time you transfer funds". I define a wallet as a container that holds wallet addresses. I think you really meant that you should create a new wallet address each time you transfer funds. If I am wrong, then can you explain why a new wallet is required.

      Hi Roger, Thanks! I must say that the phrase sounds fine to me, but I do follow your logic. And yes, it is a new wallet address that is required (or at least strongly recommended). I have updated the article to clarify "a new wallet address."
