I’m a Newbie and I understand for example, if I bought Bitcoin from Coinbase, it’s a public record so to speak. I’ve been told to use a mixing service for purchases if you want to remain anonymous.How can Coinbase know what I purchased, from whom, etc, if mixed?
Also, I have a Mycelium wallet with 4 cents in it..lol Is this a good wallet for a Newbie?
Thank you kindly,

In short, buy Bitcoins from Coinbase, but don’t use their wallet for transactions. Here’s a guide about how to use Bitcoins anonymously.
Also, here’s a short illustration of what I’ve just said…
