Privacy

  • Deterministic inputs/outputs positioning - Samourai positions the inputs/outputs of each transaction deterministically after a send, decreasing the effectiveness of block chain snooping
  • Avoid linking previous change outputs - Samourai parses all previous transactions before building a new transaction to make sure it isn't leaking valuable metadata about your and your wallet
  • Tor and VPN Support - Samourai is enabled with Tor and VPN support allowing you the ability to route all transactions through an anonymous IP address.
