So there is no way to see where you have sent money to Bitcoin Fog or to random address, because bitcoin address is like any other. So you deposit few bitcoins to the Fog and wait some time (for amounts above 20BTC we recommend a day, above 50 BTC a couple of days, about a week for 200BTC, etc.). Then you need to deposit coins to the stated address, and wait for few network confirmations. In that way, you will get coins from the pool, thought your original money is still on the random deposited address, which is not connected to your payout. If you use out .onion address, you can be sure that your data is processed securely and only by our server. Now you can time your withdrawals. Thus, there is no way to analyze or correlate your deposits with your withdrawals on the block chain. Even if bitcoin client we use is cleared every week, beginning with a fresh installation of only the block chain, and importing all the addresses we need at that point automatically.
If any service tells you that they don’t keep logs, they are most likely lying, because they will not be able to provide any support for the client who missed money, as they don’t have any history. The chain of blocks is opened for public access, which means that concerned parties have access to the information about money transfer and balance on bitcoin addresses. Even if you waited enough for your money reached the pool, there is still no way to see that it was your original coins, since it was mixed with coins of other users. Afterwards, you should make a withdrawal, which is less than original amount, that you deposited before. The coins you deposited will stay on the random address which we generated for you. So if you’ve received bitcoins from us a month ago, even the address will not be on our server so far. Even though Clearnet services may assure you they’re not cooperating with authorities, they are easily to find. We might as well say that we not only not cooperate with the authorities, but it will be very hard for them find us. Even if there were 15 people, who made same withdrawal that day, the link between your deposit and withdrawal will be obvious.
After this procedure, cleaned bitcoins are ready for the withdrawal on your other bitcoin-address. Another story is the amount of your withdrawal. Next time you will deposit another part of bitcoins and withdraw again different amount from that you deposited. That’s why you should never deposit and withdraw the same amount. Do I get same bitcoins back or other bitcoins? First of all, you should realize that there is no “your” or “mine” bitcoins, nor are there “same” bitcoins. A team of independent and enthusiastic developers created this resource in 2011, thus becoming the first and the most popular bitcoin anonymizer. Bitcoin Fog breaks this chain. It is not about Bitcoin Fog. What is Bitcoin Fog? A link could be done just if you receive bitcoin from the address that you deposited bitcoins to. Even though nobody else has access to our service and can prove that those bitcoins are yours, the link will be found anyway. On the other side, we know that we will never be found by competent authority and this also makes us feel more secure. There is an opportunity to reveal your identity during exchanging cryptocurrency into fiat currency, if you know bitcoin-addresses. There is no connection between sent and received cryptocurrency.
There always will be a problem of trust to our service, but we can assure you that the service will continue to work. As we see, there was a lot similar services, but they all had many problems. Some had low security level or were not professional enough, therefore they had been easy to hack. We have professional secure web application developers, who has 10-15 year long experience, because security is very important for our service. And we still have to earn your trust. The first is that incoming deposit is divided into smaller parts. Divide your coins into different parts and only then send. All this parts are mixed with parts of other users in common pool. Now it can be less or more, adding the coins that are left from the first time. As usual, the first step is site registration. Bitcoin daemon is run on the other machine, where the website shuts down automatically if it senses any suspicious activity or the site is under attack. Our service is run on a dedicated server, which we configured manually for this purpose. Because of security, the service operates only through Tor network.
