So like the title says , after reading much confusing and sometimes contradicting posts , articles , and stories I decided to try Bitcoin. Servertech really seems to know his stuff and he suggested coinbase in some posts awhile back. So here I go. Got an account ...Verified email,phone number , joined to checking account ,about to verify identity with photo Id (necessary if you wanna use more than 50 bucks a week) Then it dawns on me...this is my real info...how is this safer again?? I am not criminally inclined I freely admit. Am I doing this wrong or is it anonymous after a few wallet transfers? What am I missing here, am I on the right track? I am trying to get lined out for the 4th of July sale at Private label.Any input will be greatly appreciated .
