Might be a stupid question but...

I want to purchase items on onion websites using TOR. Do I need to create a bitcoin.de account using TOR? This might seem obvious, since TOR can be dangerous so I want to remain anonymous when on TOR and using bitcoins, but surely the fact that funds are transferred to bitcoin accounts via bank transfer means my personal info will be linked with the bitcoin account anyway?

I think you are a little confused about how bitcoin works. U may use the following steps...

1. Get bitcoin from bitcoin.de or some P2P exchange, whatever seems faster to U.

2. Use a Bitcoin mixer, e.g. Sharedcoin.com to take the coins to anonymous address.

3. Buy your stuff anonymously.

Two things to remember...

1. Any tangible good either delivered to home or taken at F2F meet leaves a trace.

2. Legal walk is far better than illegal run.
