You will need Tor. Tor is an open-source anonymization network.
A brief overview of Tor Project.
When you are done setting up tor, simply go to this address: http://foggedd3mc4dr2o2.onion
You can also track all the latest Bitcoin Fog news and warnings about hypothetical downtime or disturbances of the service operation on our twitter: twitter.com/BitcoinFog
The webstek you are presently browsing is just an information pagina about how to access the real thing. Bitcoin fog is not hosted on the same server and can only be accessed through Tor. The clearnet gateway does not have any sensitive information, and hacking or seizing it will yield nothing except perhaps it’s service termination. All the sensitive gegevens is kept ter the hidden service, which will be operational no matter what happens to the gateway.
The bitcoin network might be anonymous ter terms of single-handedly exposing your ip address, but the transaction history is recorded te the block chain and is publically available, which makes your anonymity very vulnerable. Once the interested parties, be it authorities or just interested researchers (http://anonymity-in-bitcoin.blogspot.com/2011/07/bitcoin-is-not-anonymous.html) have acquired any one of your addresses or transactions, they could lightly track your money around the network.
And knowing your transaction history, connecting your bitcoin addresses to real you is possible, because you will at some point need to exchange your bitcoins to or from a fiat currency using a bankgebouw account number, a credit card, LR account or similar service which is much less anonymous than the bitcoin network.
Wij are providing a solution for this: using our service you mix up your bitcoins ter our own pool with other users’ bitcoins, and get paid back to other addresses from our mixed pool, which, if decently done by you can eliminate any chance of finding your payments and making it unlikely to prove any connection inbetween a deposit and a withdraw inwards our service.
How the service works
You register an account on our webstek and deposit bitcoins to the designated address. After a duo of network confirmations, your money is registered on your Fog account, and you can schedule withdrawals. Each withdrawal will be split te a random number of payouts, depending on the amount, and the relative size of each payout will be randomized spil well. Even the timing of those payouts will be randomly spread out overheen a period of time you will specify.
Ideally you should deposit an amount of bitcoins to the Fog, wait some time (for amounts above 100BTC wij recommend a day, above 300 BTC a duo of days, about a week for 1000BTC, etc.) and request a withdrawal, which will not have the same amount spil the original deposit, leaving some funds te the Fog.
Then you should deposit another batch of bitcoins and withdraw yet another amount, again different from the amount you have deposited. This time it can be lower than deposited, or higher, adding the funds you have left from the previous deposit. This way there is no practically reliable way to do statistical analysis on the block chain and listig your deposits to your withdrawals.
вЂњDo I get same bitcoins back or other bitcoins?вЂќ
You should understand that ter bitcoin there is no вЂњyourвЂќ or вЂњmineвЂќ bitcoins, strafgevangenis are there вЂњsameвЂќ bitcoins. They are all just numbers. Whatever transaction you will get back from us will be just a number of bitcoins transferred to your address, not вЂњmarkedвЂќ ter any way.
A verbinding could be made if you would get paid from the same address that you have deposited bitcoins to. This is not the case with Bitcoin Fog. The money you deposit actually stay on the random initial address wij generate for you. Only when our main account is running low, do wij transfer the money from your deposit address to the main pool. That way, you may get a payout from the pool, while your original money is still sitting on the random initial account, not linked to your payout anywhere ter the block chain. Since it is just a bitcoin address like any other, there is no way to even see that you have deposited money to Bitcoin Fog, and not to a random account you have generated yourself. (Until the pool runs low and transfers your original money.)
Even if you waited long enough time for your money to be transferred to the pool, there is still no reliable way to see that it wasgoed your original transfer that is the source of your payout, since it is mixed with other users’ transfers.
Another thing to consider is the amount of your withdrawal. If you transfer 1.382 to us, and the next day you withdraw
1.38 bitcoins to another account, those amounts will be visible te the block chain, and unless there were Ten other people that day that also withdrew just 1.38 bitcoins, the listig inbetween your deposit and your withdrawal will be pretty evident. You will still have plausible deniability, since nobody else has access to our servers and can actually prove that those bitcoins came from your account, but the listig will be found nevertheless.
This is why you should ideally never withdraw the same amount spil you have deposited. Wij are already helping you to do this by transferring your money to you te numerous randomized payouts at randomized times (and optionally to different addresses), but to be sure you should withdraw to numerous addresses and different amounts than the one you have deposited. Also make sure to switch your deposit address every now and then to further anonymize your payments.
There have bot a duo of similar services before, and spil wij see it, the problem with most of them wasgoed that they were not professional enough, not secure enough, and not taken gravely, thus becoming subjects to effortless hacking and other problems. (mybitcoin, blindbitoin, etc.) Wij on the other mitt, are here for the long run. Our team consists of professional secure web application developers with 5-10 years practice, and wij have built this solution from scrape with security being our number one concern. Wij strive to be a mixing service that just works and does not liberate it’s private bitcoin keys due to poorly configured backups or because of someone hacker attacks on another sites from the same collective hosting, or because of any other ditzy reason.
The service is run on a dedicated server by hand configured for this very purpose, which does publically connected from the internet (not needed if using Tor). Bitcoin daemon is run on another machine, and all suspicious activity is monitored and the webstek shuts down automatically if it even senses it is under attack. It is by hand monitored and checked on a daily fundament.
For security purposes, the service operates through the Tor network only. You can be sure your gegevens is processed securely and only by our server if you use our .onion address. On the other forearm, this also makes us feel more secure, knowing that wij will never be found and dealt with by decent authorities. (Even if Tor network would be compromised, wij have taken all the necessary precautions to still stay hidden.) This is better for you spil well, while a clearnet service may swear on not cooperating with authorities te case they voorstelling up at their homes, wij can say with high certainty that not only will wij not cooperate with any authorities, the authorities will not actually be able to vertoning up at our doorstep, because finding a tor doorstep has proven difficult.
Are you going to run away with my money?
With a service like ours it will always be an punt of trust of course, but wij can ensure you that the service will proceed to operate, simply because of all the time and effort wij waterput into building it, debugging it, setting it up at a secure location, etc., which makes it simply not worth for us to run away with a duo of hundred bitcoins which is collected at the initial phase. Spil the time will pass, you will see that our service will go through switches and improvements, which someone who desired to hit-and-run also would not do.
And once again, running through Tor makes it not likely for us to be shut down under pressure from the authorities. When te doubt about this, consider Silk Road.
Of course, wij are still going to have to earn your trust. Wij suggest you attempting the service out with puny amounts, and enlargening leisurely spil time goes.
Do you keep logs?
Wij keep logs for 1 week for debugging and troubleshooting purposes. After that they are automatically deleted. ALL logs are taken care of. Even the bitcoin client wij use is purged every week, commencing with a fresh installation of only the block chain, and importing all the addresses wij need at that point automatically. That way, if you have received a payment from us a month ago, not even the address will be left on our server. If any service tells you that they don’t keep any logs at all, they are most most likely lounging, becauase when clients come asking for funds they think are missing, not having any history is like turning our backs on them and not being able to provide any support.
The service takes 1%-3% (randomized for obscurity) toverfee on each deposit. No other fees are ter place, no ingewikkeld calculations based on the number of withdraws or similar.
Ondergrens withdraw amount is 0.035 BTC.
Wij do wait for 6 network confirmations on all deposits to prevent double-spending.
