Email and other personally identifiable information

Any email address, skype username or google talk username you enter will be stored on blockchain.info's servers. We will never share this information with any third parties. (They will have to when given a legal subpeona.)

IP Addresses

We log the internet IP address a wallet was created with and the ip the wallet was last updated with.


So, yeah, there is no anonymity with Blockchain.info. I tried using it with Tor to no avail.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

The ip needs to be logged to throttle wallet creation. So yes a wallet identifier can be linked to an ip.

But address cannot be linked to a wallet identifier and transactions cannot be link to a wallet identifier. So I'm not sure exactly what someone could subpoena for.

We have to trust you won't do that. We have to trust the feds won't force you to collect that information.

Also, I couldn't use TOR on your service. VPNs aren't as strong.

I did, it worked. Fairly recently too.
