Well, sort of.

Any website which you provide your bitcoin address to can associate that with your IP address. Unless you're on Tor or something, isn't this a bit of a cause for concern?

Have a look at the Wiki - there's a link to Anonymity from Weaknesses ... well, here you go

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Weaknesses#Tracing_a_coin_s_history

Personally, I don't see this as a problem, as it makes the currency very transparent in principle. If you want to be fully anonymous, you need to put serious effort into that.

If you like this posting - feel free to give a tip:

Any website you visit already has your IP address, unless you're visiting it through Tor, so they have your address already anyways.
