Based on my question, you can tell that I'm not experienced by any stretch of the imagination. However, I'm eager to learn.
I spent quite some time setting up a full node on a headless 2011 Mac Mini running Bitcoin Core full time. I also did my best to get everything running through Tor.
The point is I want to do my part to support the network, but at the same time I also want to avoid attracting any attention (from my provider, authorities, hackers, ...)
So here is my question: in what way(s) can I run checks to verify the privacy of my operation? Any tips are welcome.
