10th December (2009): Questions about Bitcoin…
1. Is Bitcoin really anonymous? I mean totally and completely? Is my ISP able to detect, that I have sent or received a Bitcoin payment? Maybe he is even able to see that I am running Bitcoin right now?

2. If I understood this correctly, my payment partners are not able to see who I am. Does this mean, they can not see my real IP address? Only the Bitcoin-address? Even if they monitors their network connections and stuff?

3. If there is a way for my ISP to tell that I am running Bitcoin or for my payment partners to find out my IP, would it be more safe to tunnel the network traffic through a VPN (payed with Paysafecard for example)? Could this be dangerous, because the VPN provider will be able to capture my payment?

Ans: “For that level of anonymity you need to connect through TOR, which will be possible with version 0.2, which is only a few weeks away. I’ll post TOR instructions at that time.” — Satoshi Nakamoto

10th December (2009): “Those coins can never be recovered, and the total circulation is less. Since the effective circulation is reduced, all the remaining coins are worth slightly more. It’s the opposite of when a government prints money and the value of existing money goes down.” — Satoshi Nakamoto

11th December (2009): “That’s true, with the send-to-IP option, you are sending to whoever answers that IP. Sending to a bitcoin address doesn’t have that problem.
The plan is to implement an IP + bitcoin address option that would have the benefits of both. It would still use a different address for each transaction, but the receiver would sign the one-time-use address with the given bitcoin address to prove it belongs to the intended receiver.” — Satoshi Nakamoto

11th December (2010): “It would have been nice to get this attention in any other context. WikiLeaks has kicked the hornet’s nest, and the swarm is headed towards us.” BitcoinTalk Re: PC World Article on Bitcoin 23:39:16 UTCOriginal PostView in Thread

If it gets tiresome working with small numbers, we could change where the display shows the decimal point.
