Transaction Remote Release (TRR): A New Anonymization Technology for Bitcoin

  title={Transaction Remote Release (TRR): A New Anonymization Technology for Bitcoin},
  author={Qingchun Shentu and Jianping Yu},
The anonymity of the Bitcoin system has some shortcomings. Analysis of Transaction Chain (ATC) and Analysis of Bitcoin Protocol and Network (ABPN) are two important methods of deanonymizing bitcoin transactions. Nowadays, there are some anonymization methods to combat ATC but there has been little research into ways to counter ABPN. This paper proposes a new anonymization technology called Transaction Remote Release (TRR). Inspired by The Onion Router (TOR), TRR is able to render several…

Research on Anonymization and De-anonymization in the Bitcoin System

This paper studies anonymization and de-anonymization technologies and proposes some directions for further research.

A Survey on Anonymity and Privacy in Bitcoin-Like Digital Cash Systems

This survey presents guidelines for designing an anonymity/privacy improvement and discusses future research directions, and examines the studies in the literature/Web in two major categories: analyses of anonymity and privacy in Bitcoin and extensions and alternatives to Bitcoin, which improve anonymity and Privacy.

Digital cash system of Invisibility of user Identity and Concealment

Some theories, project analyses and methodologies that certainly supports the concern of the improvement of Bitcoin Customer anonymity are project out.

A study of user experiences and network analysis on anonymity and traceability of bitcoin transactions

Investigation of the anonymity of bitcoin transactions and significance of awareness of the technology by bitcoin users, alongside their experiences in tracing transactions finds significance of users’ opinions on traceability and anonymity ofBitcoin transactions is reported.

Automatic Bitcoin Address Clustering

This paper proposes to use off-chain information as votes for address separation and to consider it together with blockchain information during the clustering model construction step, showing the feasibility of a proposed approached for Bitcoin address clustering.

Integrating Privacy Enhancing Techniques into Blockchains Using Sidechains

The preliminary proposed GOR aims to improve the privacy of transactions in blockchains via PETES structure, by integrating Garlic Routing and Onion Routing into a Garlic Onion Routed (GOR) framework suitable to the structure of blockchains.

Community Detection in Blockchain Social Networks

By adopting the modified clustering algorithm, the community results in the Bitcoin network is basically consistent with the ground-truth of betting site community which has been announced to the public.



Zerocoin: Anonymous Distributed E-Cash from Bitcoin

Zerocoin is proposed, a cryptographic extension to Bitcoin that augments the protocol to allow for fully anonymous currency transactions and uses standard cryptographic assumptions and does not introduce new trusted parties or otherwise change the security model of Bitcoin.

An Analysis of Anonymity in Bitcoin Using P2P Network Traffic

This work developed heuristics for identifying ownership relationships between Bitcoin addresses and IP addresses and demonstrates how nearly 1,000 Bitcoin addresses can be mapped to their likely owner IPs by leveraging anomalous relaying behavior.

Deanonymisation of Clients in Bitcoin P2P Network

This work presents an efficient method to deanonymize Bitcoin users, which allows to link user pseudonyms to the IP addresses where the transactions are generated and shows that a natural countermeasure of using Tor or other anonymity services can be cut-off by abusing anti-DoS countermeasures of the Bitcoin network.

It is shown that the two networks derived from Bitcoin's public transaction history have a non-trivial topological structure, provide complementary views of the Bit coin system and have implications for anonymity.

Bitcoin over Tor isn't a Good Idea

This paper shows how an attacker can fingerprint users and then recognize them and learn their IP addresses when they decide to connect to the Bit coin network directly.

Zerocash: Decentralized Anonymous Payments from Bitcoin

This paper formulate and construct decentralized anonymous payment schemes (DAP schemes) and builds Zero cash, a practical instantiation of the DAP scheme construction that is orders of magnitude more efficient than the less-anonymous Zero coin and competitive with plain Bit coin.

Evaluating User Privacy in Bitcoin

This research examines the use of pseudonymity in the Bitcoin network, and the role that it plays in the development of trust and confidence in the system.

Quantitative Analysis of the Full Bitcoin Transaction Graph

This paper answers for the first time a variety of interesting questions about the typical behavior of users, how they acquire and how they spend their bitcoins, the balance of bitcoins they keep in their accounts, andHow they move bitcoins between their various accounts in order to better protect their privacy.

A Fistful of Bitcoins Characterizing Payments Among Men with No Names

This research includes work on anonymous communication systems, cyber-physical security, e-crime, and wireless privacy, as well as computer systems, networking, and security.

Anonymous connections and onion routing

A detailed specification of the implemented onion routing system, a vulnerability analysis based on this specification, and performance results are provided.
