This can help mitigate the risk of being targeted for theft, extortion, or hacking attempts, as potential attackers do not have easy access to the individual's personal information or transaction history.

It's worth noting that while anonymity offers certain benefits, it can also present challenges, such as difficulty in providing verifiable proof of identity or addressing issues related to fraud or illegal activities.

Additionally, some jurisdictions may have legal requirements that mandate the disclosure of personal information in certain cryptocurrency transactions to combat money laundering or terrorist financing.

Ultimately, the decision to pursue anonymity in cryptocurrency transactions is a personal choice, driven by a desire for privacy, security, and freedom.

It's important for individuals to consider the legal and regulatory frameworks in their respective jurisdictions, as well as the potential trade-offs associated with anonymity.

You are right mate, most people may not be bothered about anonymity. It’s an individual choice for those conscious use of their privacy and security to ensure their personal details are kept safe too

Anonymity gives a certain sense of privacy especially for the crypto users who base mostly on exchange and investment and this contributes to the reason of sticking with the CRP Crypton coin I think

While the systems may achieve the goal of decentralized currency it does not achieve the goal of untraceability.The protection of anonymity through cryptography, a desire that predates the creation of the first crypto-assets.

Being anonymous should be a preferred choice for most cryptocurrency users to protect themselves from letting their public details out because you never can be so certain about anyone

While anonymity can offer some protection by obscuring the identity of the user, it does not directly address the security of online files or the methods by which hackers might attempt to access and tamper with them.
