The project of bitcoin anonymization called Dandelion came to the stage of prototype. The developers informed about it in direct e-mail.
As it follows from their message, the testing will start after a deep theoretical analysis, The project team is carrying out a review aimed to eliminate critical areas, vulnerable to deanonymizing attacks in Dandelion application. The project offers to break each transactions into two stages. The first is transaction itself. The second is the phase of covering tracks. During the last stage the IP-address of bitcoin sender will be hidden. At the same time one of the developers noted that their technology will face deanonymization sooner or later. The potential attackers will be able to identify transactions by crosscheck of transaction patterns. At the moment Dandelion is compliant with existing versions of bitcoin. It has absolutely no conflicts with actual variants. Bitcoin-nods supporting Dandelion can identify this function by testing message.
