Our new privacy ratings report is out, including 20 different wallets!

Although the wallets haven’t changed much, the Open Bitcoin Privacy Project has made a lot of improvements to our privacy analysis. Our threat model has matured to take a more systematic approach, considering the many ways that privacy attackers can work, and the corresponding countermeasures that wallet providers can employ to protect their users. We’ve nearly doubled the number of criteria we look at for each wallet from thirty-eight points to sixty-eight. Also, due to popular demand for more wallets, this edition includes a total of twenty wallet clients, doubled from ten. That’s a 250% increase in the amount of data that we’ve collected this report, made possible thanks to the many volunteers who helped rate wallets.
