Are cryptocurrency wallets anonymous?

The answer is about the same as the answer to whether cryptocurrency is anonymous or not.

The answer is that cryptocurrency is “pseudonymous.”

Due to the open source and public nature of transaction blockchain ledgers, there are little bits of public data that can be used to backward engineer someone’s identity (in theory).

For most of us, the answer then would be, “it’s pretty close to anonymous”.
