By default, your entire MAID transaction history and balances are public. All transactions can be seen on block explorers like https://omniexplorer.info/, and anyone who knows that you own a particular address can easily view your payments, trace the source of your funds, calculate your holdings, and analyse your on-chain activity.
How to get a completely anonymous MAID:
Exchange your MAID for ERC20 MAID. Sell your ERC20 MAID for ETH. Use https://tornado.cash/ to anonymize your ETH. Buy back ERC20 MAID with the anonymous ETH. Now you have anonymous ERC20 MAID and you can exchange it for anonymous MAID.
- “Before making your coins truly anonymous, its worth considering how easy it will be to turn them into fiat when you have some profits to take.” - @bones
- If you keep the private keys of all the wallets you use for the transactions (the bitcoin wallets and the ethereum wallets) you can prove to everyone (exchanges and government) that you made these transactions and the coins are yours.
- Always exchange only a small part of your money, because any intermediary (the ERC20 MAID token or tornado.cash) can be hacked or a sharp change in price happened. If you exchange only a small part of your money, you risk only small part of your money!
