PRIVACY ONEBIT CORE
Every confirmed Bitcoin transaction is published to the block chain where anyone can see it. So why do people still use Bitcoin? And why do many of them believe that Bitcoin is a private way of sending money?
One reason is that OneBit Core and some other Bitcoin software tries to avoid associating your real-world identity with the transactions you make. The difference looks like this:
NO SIGN-UP REQUIRED
STRONG PRIVACY FOR SENT TRANSACTIONS
To put a transaction on the block chain, you must send it publicly—but how you send it can make a big difference.
Can you guess who made which transactions? Nearly all peer-to-peer lightweight clients today make no attempt to obscure their sent transactions. They simply send them to some or all of their peers.
OneBit Core does much better. By default, it relays transactions for all of its peers—thousands of separate transactions a day under common conditions—which allows it both support the peer-to-peer network and confuse anti-privacy organizations that try to track your transactions.
The Tor anonymity network helps disassociate your online activity from your IP address (which is often closely associated with your real name). This significantly increases your ability to confound anti-privacy organizations.
Once you setup Tor, using it with OneBit Core is easy. If you also setup a Tor hidden service, you will be able to connect mobile clients to your OneBit Core full node for increased security and privacy wherever you go.
