Buying crypto anonymously with FIAT is not a super easy task, I know there is Bisq (not many people there), LocalBitcoin, and other similar platforms. Things get even harder if you’re not based in US or Europe (like myself). So, centralized exchanges have their charms, as they make buying crypto an easy process, but I know, I’m not anonymous there.
So here are a few questions, if you can list the answers like I’m listing the question, I’d really appreciate.
1 - What if I use an exchange to buy XMR, and only XMR, and never convert it into anything else? The exchange has the records of how much I bought, but XMR says it totally anonymous, how does that work?
2 - What if I buy XMR in an exchange and send it to Incognito? Do I have to take one extra step, like converting it into something else, or send it to another wallet to make myself anonymous? How anonymous is this?
3 - Is there a way to buy crypto (and which should I buy) in an exchange and be anonymous? What level of anonymity can I get? I mean, they know I deposit a certain amount in the exchange, but can they know what I did after that?
Thank you for the time you took to read my question.
