...

I have read a few suggestions here to just send BTC to exchanges, and then wait a while and have them sent back (perhaps even in part) all with the idea of giving some extra privacy (vs. using mixing services).

But I have a question:

Do you lose privacy when using the BTC exchanges, even just to send some over there and have them send BTC back?  "Know your customer" rules?  Etc.

I am interested in privacy for my BTC holdings, and if I have to pay a mixing service (or two!) just a little bit to hide my BTC and wallet connections, that is OK with me.

If the exchanges insist on knowing a lot about their customers, that is not OK with me.

Thoughts?

If you want you use an exchange as a pseudo mixing service use one without KYC, such as localbitcoins.

If you are only sending coins in and out (no fiat deposit/withdrawal), then BTCE and Bitfinex are options that don't require verification. Stamp, I believe, requires verification to withdraw bitcoins.

You can use coinbase without verifying your identity as long as you don't use it to buy or sell.
