No worries Brother. The transaction completed a few minutes after I posted that.

Its a good feeling to have wallets full of clean satoshi's.

Thanks again for a well run and affordable service.

Anonymixer Service is Down.

The entire Tor V3 network is being DOS attacked, which we use internally. Sorry for the inconvenience, we are trying to find a work around.

No in-flight trades are impacted and will go through as normal.

Anonymixer Service is Temporarily Suspended!

  • On January 10th, the Tor Network started to suffer from a major DOS attack affecting all V3 Onion Services, to the point where it became unusable. We use Tor V3 Services internally.
  • On January 11th, some service was restored briefly, but intermittently. However, various Onion services have been seized, during this time.
  • It's possible that this may be due to the attack itself.

We are not a DarkNet Market and we only focus on people's financial privacy, however, we have decided to temporarily pause trading whilst we re-architect and re-develop internal parts of our system, to improve OP-SEC prior to re-opening the Service.

We estimate this software development to take approximately 1 week. Hopefully we will be back up and running up by 19th January.

We can assure you that we are safe and well, we have updated our Canary and we hope to trade with you again soon!

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Anonymixer Service is 100% now online and available. Major development has taken place behind the scenes, to improve OP-SEC, which was already very good, but is now even better.

  • You may find everything to be a lot faster / snappier, i.e. Deposit transactions and confirmations are picked up even quicker than before
  • Service light being red, hopefully, touch wood, is a thing of the past, everything should be a lot more stable

The powers that be can attempt to destroy the Tor V3 network to their heart's content and hopefully, we will still be standing - and still very much anonymous.

We may be over-cautious, but we do not know what the future holds.

Hope to trade with you soon.

The Tor V3 network is being attacked again, perhaps by a State Actor?, specifically the consensus nodes are receiving the brunt of it.

The Anonymixer Service is 100% up! The V2 onion works fine, with some perseverance the V3 onion will work. Most crucially, the status light will stay green / on and we're able to Trade, even under this attack.

The Tor guys did release a patch for the consensus nodes, well enough for it to be workable, but I suspect the attackers have since tweaked their code to get around that.

Not that it's anything to do with us, but for those concerned about upgrading their Bitcoin nodes to Bitcoin 0.21.0 with the network shifting over to Onion V3 addresses, in my personal opinion, don't be concerned.

From what I understand, unlike HTTP, where streams / sockets can close and Tor circuits forgotten, the Bitcoin Protocol is binary based and establishes a relatively permanent stream / socket over a constant circuit. Further it establishes streams / sockets with many remote peers. When one peer disconnects, the client will persistently retry to build circuits and streams with others. So, in our opinion, have no fear in upgrading to Bitcoin 0.21.0 - it will be resilient in the face of this attack.

Bitcoin 0.21.0 also includes a very, very important privacy feature:

To improve wallet privacy, the frequency of wallet rebroadcast attempts is reduced from approximately once every 15 minutes to once every 12-36 hours. To maintain a similar level of guarantee for initial broadcast of wallet transactions, the mempool tracks these transactions as a part of the newly introduced unbroadcast set. See Pull #18038.

Some persons think the attack is done by a state, some others think it's done by market owners, yet there is no evidence found. Perhaps none of them are the cause, do you remember last year?

Hello,

I'm just dropping in to express my gratitude for this excellent service.

Just a short post detailing my positive experience with Anonymixer and its staff.
The mixing service itself is quite impressive, quick, slick, well built and with helpful tutorials.

However, since I was in a hurry when using it, I made a large overpayment with my mix.
Upon contacting the Anonymixer staff they promptly sorted everything out for me, even though the blunder was on my side.

I was stupid, but these nice dudes saved my ass. A lesson learned and a heads up for anybody else.

Many thanks for that.

Some updates:

  • Anonymixer now supports Native SegWit deposits
  • We still provide legacy P2PKH and P2SH deposit addresses, just in case
  • We now provide 10 unique deposit addresses per trade/mix
  • Paying multiple deposit addresses in the same transaction didn't always register properly. That's been fixed

When Transaction fees are high, it's not a bad idea to send 1 transaction to Anonymixer, where by you batch-pay multiple Deposit Addresses in that transaction, for instance:

Your Input Address|Amount (BTC)|Output Address|Amount (BTC)
bc1qech0svc0u3rvjmmqnnssf0wg76tvldqygq92ha|0.02|bc1qkwqwzklpr5az9qm80xnzxpjspxpyjftmqdzyvy (Anonymixer Deposit)|0.00306244
||bc1qasuwtlyge8wczt0aum63e84a6fs3jjh887cm8c (Anonymixer Deposit)|0.00714568
||bc1qecdxvhh2za26pm92jr25zee3eu520vvnqdd7f9 (your change)|0.00970988

Another note: when you spend from multiple inputs and deposit to multiple Anonymixer addresses all in the same Transaction, for all intents and purposes that is considered to be a CoinJoin or an Exchange depositing into Anonymixer, certainly Blockchair appears to think so, so you could get really creative here with both depositing into as well as payments coming out of Anonymixer.

Tor is removing support for legacy V2 addresses. Tor V3 addresses provide better encryption algorithms and anonymity.

Anonymixer's primary Tor V3 Onion address is:
btcmixer2e3pkn64eb5m65un5nypat4mje27er4ymltzshkmujmxlmyd.onion

Please update any bookmarks which reference the old Tor V2 Address (anonymixerpolbpy.onion).

Also, Anonymixer will support Taproot addresses when the soft fork fully activates in November.

Is the attack on V3 completely over? Are the vulnerabilities fixed or this might happen again?

Yes the attack is over, the vulnerabilities are fixed and no it's unlikely to happen again.

It was an attack on the V3 network as a whole and was patched by the Tor devs.

If the same (or similar) attack did happen to come back and the V3 network was destroyed - our infrastructure would still be standing and operating.
We spent 2 weeks re-developing our internal architecture assuming that the attack on the Tor V3 network would persist indefinitely.
