Hackers around the world use cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ether every day under the mistaken assumption that these networks are somehow privacy-preserving (often conflating pseudonymity for privacy). This couldn't be further from the truth, as it is in fact often easier to trace crypto transactions than fiat transactions. Even so-called private networks like Zcash and Monero aren't failsafe from a privacy perspective. However, with a few tricks and tools it is possible to preserve privacy on cryptographic networks in a robust way. This workshop will present a brief history of privacy successes and failures in cryptocurrency and blockchain with important case studies, will demonstrate tracing and de-anonymization of actual transactions in real time, and will present tools and techniques for guaranteeing strong privacy.
