I’m sure you already know what Bitcoin mixing, or Bitcoin mixers are. One such Bitcoin mixer is the subject of this Anonymix review today.
In the last couple years, we’ve been with over hundred Bitcoin mixers. This helped us understand the primary features which make a mixer better (or “not as good”) as others.
Here are the primary features which we’ll talk about in detail throughout this Anonymix review:
- Is Anonymix Anonymous?
- How many Additional Addresses does Anonymix support?
- What is the fee charged by Anonymix?
- Does Anonymix offer Time-Delays?
- Who Controls the fund-distribution on Anonymix?
- What are the Minimum-Maximum limits on Anonymix?
- How many Confirmations does Anonymix Need?
- What is Anonymix Mixing ID?
- What is Certificate of Origin?
Isn’t it a good idea to let you have a glimpse of all the superpowers that Anonymix brings with itself? Well here they are:
- Clearnet URL: https://anonymix.io/
- Onion URL: http://anonymixtnq67qer.onion
- Additional Addresses: 10
- Fee: 0.3%/transaction + (0.0001BTC/extra address)
- Confirmations: Only 1.
- Limits: Minimum 0.002BTC/ Maximum 100 BTC.
- User Control on: Time-Delays / Fund-Distribution .
- No Logs Policy: Yes.
- Registration: Not Required.
Let’s get all handsy with this Anonymix review then?
Is Anonymix Anonymous?
The entire point of why someone would want to use a Bitcoin mixer is to increase anonymity. Isn’t it?
Well there are certain factors which dictate the level of anonymity a mixer is able to provide:
- Registration Requirements.
- Logs Policy.
Starting with the “Registration Requirements”, the mixer has none. It not only doesn’t require registrations, but doesn’t support the feature altogether. It clearly means that the platform doesn’t maintain a “database” of users.
The logs policy is another more important aspect of a mixer’s anonymity. Well Anonymix adheres to a strict “No Logs Policy”.
The No logs policy has a 7-day retention period. So the company retains logs pertaining to a mix for a week, and then deletes them permanently.
Although, what impressed me most was the fact that users can delete the logs much sooner (even seconds after creating a mix!) manually. Not a lot of mixers out there which offer users the control or choice of deleting the logs, Anonymix does.
The platform doesn’t, and can’t monitor user IP addresses because it offers its Tor version. And Tor as is already known to you, masks a user’s IP address before communicating with a website.
So as the name suggests, Anonymix does take anonymity seriously and is 100% anonymous.
How Many Additional Addresses does Anonymix Support?
Additional addresses are probably the most basic yet most effective ways of de-linking coins.
The more addresses any mixer lets users specify, the more anonymous it’s considered to be. Simply because the new coins which the mixer sends to users can now be split in as many parts as the number of addresses.
In a real-life scenario, imagine if you need something delivered and someone’s tailing you. So you ask a number of your friends to bring your item, in pieces to you.
Even in case one of your friends is caught, the item he would have will only be a piece/fragment of your complete item, and hence it can’t be linked to you or your final item.
Anonymix allows for a total of 10 additional addresses.
What is the Fee Charged by Anonymix?
Charging a fee is linked not just with the mixer making a profit, but also with anonymity.
When a mixer charges a fee, some amount from the initial unclean deposit gets deducted. This alters the final output and hence de-links the two sets of coins.
Anyway, Anonymix charges a static, 0.3% fee/transaction. This can’t be altered or changed by the user. Keeps things simple.
We just talked about additional addresses, didn’t we? Well each additional address on Anonymix is charged at an extra 0.0001BTC/address.
If you’ve been with any of the other mixers, you’d probably agree that this is almost the exact fee charged by any other mixer out there.
Does Anonymix offer Time-Delays?
Yes it does! What these are? Remember the example above? Now imagine instead of asking all your friends to deliver your item-pieces on the same day, you ask them to deliver it on consecutive days. Or weeks/months later.
This would make it much harder for anyone to link the original product, to the broken-down pieces of the item delivered at various different intervals, won’t it?
That’s what time-delays are. They create a gap between when a user sends in his/her deposits, and when he/she receives the output.
With Anonymix, a user gets to choose from 7 different time delays:
- Quick mix
- 1 Hour
- 3 Hours.
- 7 Hours.
- 12 Hours.
- 24 Hours.
- Or a Random delay.
That’s not all. Remember the multiple addresses we were talking about earlier. Anonymix allows users to set delays for each individual address manually.
So you choose when exactly which of those addresses will receive the funds.
Who Controls the Fund-Distribution on Anonymix?
The user controls the distribution on Anonymix.
I pay attention to fund-distribution because with most mixers this is “mixer-controlled”. Meaning I get absolutely no idea of how much funds each of my addresses will receive.
Anonymix however provided me with 100% of fund-control. Right next to each address, there’s a % marker. This lets me manually specify what percentage of the total funds should be sent to that individual address.
This has an added benefit. When the fund-distribution is user-controlled, a mixer can be used as an automated tool to send funds to many addresses, at once, with the added anonymity that it brings with itself.
What are the Minimum-Maximum Limits on Anonymix?
The minimum limit is the smallest deposit you can make to a mixer. The maximum deposit is the highest amount of mix any mixer is capable of processing.
On Anonymix, this the smallest accepted amount is 0.002BTC. The maximum being 100BTC.
Note that the maximum limit may change at times depending on the platform’s BTC reserves. Whatever amount it is, it’s always shown on the deposit page.
How many Confirmations does Anonymix Need?
Anonymix is one of the fastest mixers I’ve ever seen. It requires only 1 confirmation for transactions to be accepted.
It has this “Quick-mix” delay mode which when selected acts as an “instant payout” option. In other words, when selected the output is sent as soon as the input is confirmed.
While with almost all other mixers, a minimum of 3-5 confirmations are required. Some mixers even require 20+ confirmations.
What is Anonymix Mixing ID?
Anonymix doesn’t need registrations as mentioned earlier. So the platform assigns users with a “mixing ID” for each of their mixes.
When contacting support this mixing ID needs to be specified so the support team can find the mix and solve the issue.
It also can be used to check the mix-status in case you haven’t received your funds yet.
What is the Certificate of Origin?
This is a document provided to users with each mix. It can be used to prove the source of the coins to be “Anonymix”.
There can be various instances when you may be asked to prove the source of your coins, that’s when this Certificate of Origin comes in handy.
What are the other Features on Anonymix?
Here are a couple extra features which need to be mentioned in this Anonymix review regardless of them not being “primary features” for some.
There does exist a support-team to handle all mix-related questions. They can be contacted using the “Contact” link on the homepage of the site.
This is an added feature which deserves a mention in this Anonymix review. The platform runs a program, where every 100th mix receives a 25% bonus on their total mix amount.
It’s applicable both for first-timers, as well as returning users.
It’s time we should put this Anonymix review under the wraps, don’t you agree? The prime benefits I personally felt to be present with the mixer were its no-registration mode, no logs policy, and low-requirements.
Is it the best mixer out there? That’s a question I’ll leave for you. Although comparatively speaking, there doesn’t seem to be a lot missing with Anonymix.
Be it the fee, user-control over various aspects of the mix, transaction times or anything else. We even did a Google search for the company, and the few reviews we did get were all pretty positive.
All in all, there’s not to “not like” about the company. Do drop your two cents on this Anonymix review?
