So as long as you don't mind being known as a bitcoiner?  And how many bitcoins you have in your hot wallet, then you're fine?

Zerocoin is something that can be added to the bitcoin protocol, yes?

Is there a crytocurrency that is using zerocoin yet?  Is there a zerocoin?

Articles like this have me worried what else can be found out or done with a bit of expertise.

I don't understand why they call this an "attack" - there are no coins being lost or frozen as a result, no downtime or interruptions to the network.  This is more a data analysis method of determining the owner of coins.  Attack to me i something different.
