Re: traceable

Exactly.

Blockchain security outfit Slowmist boasted earlier it had discovered "the attacker’s mailbox, IP, and device fingerprints through on-chain and off-chain tracking," and others may be on the thief's tail.

So much for that 'no government intrusion / anonymous / private transactions' part. It was right in the story.

So if crypto transactions aren't the 100% anonymous, private business that they're been promising, is it worth going through all the transactional friction in the first place? And what is the use of a "currency" that changes value every minute of the day??

This whole thing has become nothing more than a pyramid-scheming joke.
