I am totally new to the Bitcoin thing and have installed
Electrum yesterday after having read a lot of reviews on different local wallet options. I am not really planning to use it yet, but I want to learn the thechnology.
I am still a little confused regarding some things. The questions are below.
1) After having installed Electrum I go to the
Recieving tab in the GUI. There I can see some different addresses. Can I publish them all to the public to get payments?
2) Are these addresses static? That is, will I have these addresses forever to receive payments and I guess multiple people can insert bitcoins multiple times to the same address?
3) Actually, from an anonymity perspective, what is the difference between having several receiving addresses in one wallet to get payments and multiple wallets with one address each?
4) If one would be totally anonymous when getting and making payments (let´s say person A will get payment from B and then A will pay C), is this a correct way to do it and still become anonymous:
a) install a local wallet with `tor` support (Electrum for instance) b) connect to the `tor` network and give one of the receiving addresses to person B so he or she can make the payment c) Go to the Send tab and send to person C. When the transactions are done, close the wallet and disconnect from tor
