Amazon filed a patent to de-anonymize Bitcoin transactions and sell the data

Article: ... forcement/

Important quote from the article:
The purpose here would be to combine data from different retailers and look for common points, such as a shipping address or IP logs and then start to put together a picture of the real identity of the person using Bitcoin or any other crypto currency.
Seeing the scale of Amazon, I have no doubt that the impact of this patent would be highly damaging to people who value the anonymity of bitcoin.
