Bitcoin Q&A: Exchanges, identity, and CoinJoins

Is Bitcoin anonymous if exchanges and some wallets require identities? Should we assume that our identity information will be leaked if we use KYC-ed wallets? Besides buying, what is a reliable way to acquire bitcoin? How can I set up a wallet without providing identity? Do you still recommend using CoinJoins? Could they become illegal?

These questions are from the third and fourth sessions of MOOC 12, which took place on September 27th, October 4th, and October 26th 2019 respectively.

Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a technologist and serial entrepreneur who has become one of the most well-known and respected figures in Bitcoin. He is the author of “Mastering Bitcoin,” “The Internet of Money” series, and “Mastering Ethereum.”
