Mixing your ethereum is an important strategy if you're to be anonymous. There are many reasons why you should do this. Hackers and other malicious actors depend on the knowledge they have that there are funds in your wallet as well as your identity to attempt stealing them. To accomplish this, they would need to phish for your private keys or password without which funds in your wallet cannot be accessed.
The ethereum tumbler helps to keep your identity secret by providing a shield that prevents prying eyes from knowing who you are. They also stop blockchain analysts from following your transactions. In view of this, it is imperative that while making purchases at e-commerce sites that you use a blending service such as Bitcoinmix.org to send your payments. The service has everything that you need to secure your wallet and remain anonymous on the Ethereum network. To do this, here are steps to take when you get to the site.
Step 1 Input Your Receiving Address
At the homepage you'll see the option to select the coin you wish to blend. Select Ethereum to prepare the mixer for ETH mixer. You'll see the field for the destination address for the wallet where you would want your ethereum sent after it has been mixed. The tumbler also shows the custom delay time which should be set at a minimum of 10 minutes. This means that the fund would be mixed and sent to your wallet in that time. The reason for custom delay time is to shake off any trails of past transactions. You'll notice that the minimum delay needed for ETH is different from that of BTC which is 30 minutes. Be sure that you've inputted your own Ether address where you want the funds forwarded to before clicking 'Next'.
Step 2 Send Your Coins
The next page shows the Order Status where you see the ethereum address of the mixing service. There is a minimum 0.5 ETH that is acceptable for mixing on the blender. Be sure that you are sending at least that amount to the tumbler address since anything less would be considered a donation. There is a random fee that is chargeable plus miner fees for mixing your ethereum.
Letter of Guarantee
On this page also is the Letter of Guarantee which is proof that the service is obligated to you. This letter is the only evidence that you have of the transaction and should be saved before you send funds to the tumbling service. Mixers generally do not keep logs since their objective is to make users anonymous. The Letter of Guarantee can be verified with verification tools like https://tools.bitcoin.com/verify-message/.
Also make sure it contains your receiving address and mixer's deposit address where you will send your coins.
The Letter can be signed only with the official BitcoinMix.org address 1MiXeR1vrV6wGJSsgUyYYcjkApim2GdGHh.
Step 3 Waiting for Network Confirmations
Once you have sent your coins to the mixer you will need to wait for 30 Ethereum network confirmations. After your transaction is confirmed by the network your order will be processed instantly in accordance with selected delay. Track the amount of confirmations for each incoming transaction in the table. It also can be verified on the reliable blockchain explorer like https://blockchair.com. Just input the mixer's deposit address and check if your transaction already has 30 confirmations.
Step 4 Ether Has Been Mixed
The next page shows that your ether coins have been mixed. That's all ...your funds will be available in the designated wallet in a moment. Note: funds could arrive as multiple transactions which equals the full amount.
Minimum Amount to Mix
Make sure you send an amount that fits the minimum amount to mix: 0.5 ETH. If you missed it and sent less than minimum please drop a support ticket with your order details and it will be processed as usual one. Otherwise it will be accepted as a donation.
Service takes some random fee from 2% to 4.9%, this is why it is far more difficult to track transactions because the fee is randomized and unpredictable.
