Introducing Private Transactions On Ethereum NOW!

How does Tornado.cash achieve privacy in Ethereum?

Deposit

Anonymity Set

The chicken or the egg problem

  • Using a wallet (Metamask, Trustwallet, etc)
  • Or via Relayer

Tips to stay anonymous

  • Using Relayer or not, you still need to keep up common Internet anonymity like using vpn, proxies, Tor in order to hide the IP address you act from. Since you are using browser an Incognito Tab feature is also useful.
  • Make sure you clear cookies for dapps before using your new address, because if a dapp sees both old and new address with the same cookies it will know that addresses are from the same owner.
  • The note contains data that can be used to link your deposit with withdraw. It is a good idea to make sure that your note data is securely destroyed after the withdrawal is complete.
  • Wait until there are a few deposits after yours. If your deposit and withdrawal are right next to each other, the observer can guess that this might be the same person. We recommend waiting until there are at least 5 deposits
  • Wait until some time has passed after your deposit. Even if there are multiple deposits after yours they all might be made by the same person that is trying to spam deposits and make user falsely believe that there is a large anonymity set. We recommend waiting at least 24h to make sure that there were deposits made by multiple people during that time.
