It is not easy to trace bitcoin transactions. But if you a big criminal or a millionaire then for example government of USA can trace you with tracks of websites. But if you are using VPN you will be more secure.
If you just follow simple rules of internet security - you will be almost in safety.

If you bought bitcoin or used bitcoin with any website that is linking your email or name it can be traced back to you and your wallet.
The FBI and other law agencies have developed or developing tools to deanonymize the bitcoin blockchain.
The best way to remain anonymous is to use a blender such as our website- BITMIXCOIN.IO.

Yes, Bitcoin is indeed very traceable. I’ve read and heard several stories of how scammers and criminals on the Bitcoin platform were traced and arrested in their country. Most of them will end up as rotten eggs in their country’s prison. I really love that. Wonderful!

for me, If you buy bitcoin or use bitcoin with a website that links email or name, it can be traced back to you and your wallet.
The FBI and other legal entities have developed or developed tools to discriminate against blockchain bitcoin.

The blockchain keeps track of every transaction and that makes somewhat easy to trace. I think that if any of these transactions can be assigned to one ip, it makes easier to trace the participants.

Not too easy, but yet I think it is traceable.

Every coins leave a 'taint' whenever they get transferred to another address and so on. If you follow these traces that a coin leaves, you can trace the original address on where does this coin come from. You can follow bitcoin transactions to a certain point, but when it gets delivered to a mixing service, good luck on finding the end point of the transactions.

Also, there are no known tools to connect an address to your dox unless you leaked it somewhere in the web.

Wallets nowadays are making it harder and harder to be traceable and that's a good thing. In fact some of them don't even save your ip adress when you log in and whomever will try to trace will need to contact the isp and that's kinda not going to help them. And they also use different bitcoin adresses that links to the same wallet. The security race between wallets is just getting started i hope we see new innovations soon !

yeah its traceable. the blockchain tracks it. and even coins. ph you can see the transaction you made. but if its transfered to mixing services then maybe can trace but its litle hard. but maybe only scamers do that.

As a matter of fact it is. Every transaction of Bitcoin is recorded on a public ledger of some sort where the public can see each one of them. So with this, it is highly justifiable that transactions conducted in Bitcoin are traceable. This is unless the user know how to cover his tracks. Early investors as you've mentioned had Bitcoins through mining, some obtained their coin from p2p transactions.

Personal information could not be easily be traced just by using your public key. However, if your public key is linked to your email then you personal info may be found.

I'm pretty sure everything is traceable as long there is an effort put to look for it, even though its hard to trace and need more time and capital to track some spesific transaction, some people might cover their tracks, but i think there's always a way to find the untraceable  Grin

The most attractive point of the bitcoin is that it is a safe currency you will not suffer from any kind of problem the price and the transaction of the bitcoin is being so famous now people are using bitcoin because they knows bitcoin currency is the safe and common currency and a lot of new people use it now so no one can ever know about your personal thing regarding bitcoin, such as your income, password and your transaction time and fees so it is safe to use.

Hello everyone

As the title states "Are Bitcoin transactions traceable?" if so how? One thing I know is transactions can be traced via exchanges but how did early investors purchase Bitcoin? was it only via mining? Also, how can my personal information be traced using my public address?

Thanks in Advance

yep, it is somewhat the same when you are tracing a phone call or an ip address but I suggest you use different countermeasures like tor browsers or opera browser with built in vpn to mask your address.

It's not. You can only "trace" an address by linking its transaction to one service that logs your data and is willing to provide this information.

Example: If you have a verified account at Bittrex, they can link your account - with your personal information - with the addresses used to make your deposits. That's why people tend to use a mixer to break the connection between dirty Bitcoins and an exchange that has your full name.

there is always a way to track it, depending on the level of the person who controls it.
but that's the special and bad crypto that criminals often use to launder their crime money

Yes, it is indeed traceable but only transaction code and wallet code because there's no owner information upon the creation of wallet and so as Altcoins. Now what if they trace my wallet, do they know it's me the owner?

Your personal information can never be revealed with your bitcoin address.
Unless you have wallet on a exchage and the exchange owner want to give away your identity.
See i understand you donot want to buy btc from any exchage cause everyone now a days wants verification.
If this is true use this forum to buy btc in buy/sell section.
always use escrow and always use mods to become your escrow do not trust any unknown hero/legendary account.

It is supposed that all the transactions and addresses are fully anonymous, but everytime there are less security for the bitcoin holders. If you want to join a exchange, you will need to provide your ID, and if you use that wallet, you will be compromised with your next activities.
The same happen with those who are using coinbase, they have the control over your ID and everything.
Bitcoin is not the same as in the beggining, when it was trully anonymous, not like it is at the moment..

I can remember those days when bitcoin was anonymous at a 100%, but it is not happening anymore. But if you take care of your security, your transactions can not be traceable ones, you can use a multisignature address to improve your security, this will make all your transactions 100% anonymous and you wont have any problem on the future, i prefer to use multisig wallets instead of single wallets, it is not because i am hiding something, it is because everybody can click on your wallet and see how much money do you have in there.

ABout the bitcoin transaction if you are looking about the transaction hash and it is traeable but if you try to find the owner of the address and that will be difficult imo. The fact that the bitcoin is decentralized currency. But the centralized exchange of bitcoin becomes the main concern, They are all so weak. I think that the very possible think to know about the identity of the users are tracing thtough the centralized exchange site.
You will never find that through trace the transaction hash.
