Trezor Puts Privacy First By Refusing Coinjoin UTXOs
- Trezor denies certain UTXOs to protect privacy of other users.
- A Trezor representative stated that they aim to prevent UTXOs that are already under surveillance from harming the privacy of other participants.
- No on-chain data analysis company receives any coins; instead, a risk score is returned based on UTXO entering the coinjoin.
Trezor, a hardware wallet manufacturer, has been making headlines recently due to concerns about censorship.
It has been reported that Trezor denies some UTXOs from entering the coinjoin coordinator in order to protect the privacy of other users. However, Trezor has come out to deny these allegations and has given an explanation for its actions.
To address these concerns, Trezor has implemented measures to ensure that certain UTXOs (Unspent Transaction Outputs) are denied entry into the coinjoin coordinator. According to a representative from the company, this is done to protect the privacy of other users who may be associated with these UTXOs that are already under surveillance due to their connection to serious crimes.
While Trezor acknowledges the sensitivity of the matter, the company emphasizes that their refusal to allow certain UTXOs into the coinjoin coordinator is done with the aim of supporting coinjoin transactions and providing individual users with privacy. It is important to note that no on-chain data analysis company receives any coins, instead, a risk score is returned based on the UTXO entering the coinjoin. Some UTXOs may be refused if they are flagged as under scrutiny based on the risk score.
Trezor also confirms that they cannot check individual users or track or report on their activity since coinjoin is enabled via Tor, the anonymization network, and block filters are used. The company remains committed to ensuring the privacy of their users and has provided additional information on their approach to coinjoin on their official website.
