|Re: <nettime> Fwd: Stephen Foley: Bitcoin needs to learn from past e-currency|
There's a distinction between wallets and addresses. Addresses are
traceable and can be analyzed in that manner. Wallets are collections of
addresses which need not ever be publicly associated.
Far from being *worse *than tracing credit/debit cards, because a user can
constantly "shift" identities (frequently used addresses, say), Bitcoin
actually makes it possible to avoid the privacy problem.
