Bitcoin Privacy: On- and Off-Chain

This Bitcoin basics session will be composed of three topics: 1) On-chain privacy attacks and how to thwart them, covering topics like address re-use, wallet fingerprinting, CoinJoin, etc. 2) Off-chain privacy attacks and how to thwart them, covering topics like personal data collection, traffic analysis, Dandelion, etc. 3) The current state and consequences of financial privacy or lack thereof.

What will students learn? Students will learn about various ways their financial privacy can be attacked while using bitcoin, and what tools or techniques they can use to prevent or lessen the impact of these attacks.

This course is appropriate for people new to the industry, professionals, current and aspiring blockchain developers who want to improve their privacy.

Prerequisite(s): None, although it would be helpful if you had a mental or written list of the bitcoin applications and services you currently use or have used, as this will be relevant.
