Bitcoin Q&A: Airdrop coins and privacy implications


    Rating 4.6 (2 votes)

     08/04/2018



    Should we take any of the Bitcoin fork coins seriously? Are they "free money"? What are the privacy and operational security risks involved with claiming airdrop / fork coins? When taking advantage of airdrop coins, most people will naively aggregate UTXOs and effectively associate addresses on both chains. Remember: the data analysts are watching!
