Re: A compilation of reasons and arguments why one should be anonymous.

Re: A compilation of reasons and arguments why one should be anonymous.

Anonymous users can avoid targeted advertising and profiling based on their cryptocurrency transactions. Some individuals prefer to keep their financial activities private and not be subjected to personalized marketing.

Re: A compilation of reasons and arguments why one should be anonymous.

It's important to note that while anonymity can provide certain benefits, it also has potential downsides, such as making it more challenging to recover lost funds or address transaction disputes. The level of anonymity often depends on the specific cryptocurrency used and the practices adopted by the user.
