A sinister report from cybersecurity firm Ciphertrace asserts that its software can track up to 87% of the global cryptocurrency transaction volume. Authorities are looking for new ways to use blockchain analysis to investigate illegal activity, but there's very little to stop them implementing new technologies to track the activity of ordinary people, too. In addition to more sophisticated technologies, governments and law enforcement rely most frequently on more basic methods for following cryptocurrency transactions, such as KYC information and IP addresses. While the tools to track your bitcoin are getting stronger, bitcoin mixers like Bitcoin Laundry are still your best line of defence when you want to safeguard your online privacy. Here's how to make the most of our mixer to keep you secure.

Use Tor: No need to broadcast your personal IP address when making bitcoin transactions. Use a VPN and tor to visit us at . To cover all your bases, choose a VPN provider that allows cash or cryptocurrency payments.
Use a delay: We offer this for a reason! Of course it's convenient to get your clean coins right away, but delaying your transaction makes it harder to connect bitcoins going into the mixer with bitcoins coming out.
Use multiple addresses: Ditto with the addresses. When an amount goes into the mixer, analysis will be easier when a similar amount comes out to one address. It's better to split your mix into several addresses.
Use new addresses: A mixed bitcoin is only as clean as the address you send it to. For best protection, clean coins should be sent to brand new addresses every time.
Use often: Use a bitcoin mixer whenever you receive bitcoins from an individual, and definitely before sending coins to an exchange or any platform associated with your real identity.

Now that we have the foundations covered, here's how to use Bitcoin Laundry to mix your bitcoin.
Step one: Begin a new mix
On our homepage, click "CLEAN YOUR BTC NOW". This button will take you to the new mix page where you can fill out your mix preferences. Use this page to enter the addresses where you want to receive your clean bitcoin, how you want your payment to be divided up, and to choose your delay. When you have entered your mix preferences, continue the process by clicking "CLEAN BITCOINS NOW"

Step two: Send your BTC
After you have entered your mix preferences, the next step is to send your bitcoins to Bitcoin Laundry. You will see our address and a QR code you can use to send your coins, along with other information about your mix, including your session ID. It's very important that you save your session ID, in case you need to contact support for help with your mix process. It is the only way to identify your mix if anything goes wrong.

Step three: Receive your clean coins
Once you have sent your bitcoins to the address specified by Bitcoin Laundry, all you have to do is wait for fresh, clean bitcoins to be delivered to the address or addresses you entered at the beginning of the session. That's it! Now you can be sure that your bitcoins are secure and anonymous.
