Design for a CoinSwap Implementation for Massively Improving Bitcoin Privacy and Fungibility

Design for a CoinSwap Implementation for Massively Improving Bitcoin Privacy and Fungibility



Imagine a future where a user Alice has bitcoins and wants to send them with maximal privacy, so she creates a special kind of transaction. For anyone looking at the blockchain her transaction appears completely normal with her coins seemingly going from address A to address B. But in reality her coins end up in address Z which is entirely unconnected to either A or B.

Now imagine another user, Carol, who isn't too bothered by privacy and sends her bitcoin using a regular wallet which exists today. But because Carol's transaction looks exactly the same as Alice's, anybody analyzing the blockchain must now deal with the possibility that Carol's transaction actually sent her coins to a totally unconnected address. So Carol's privacy is improved even though she didn't change her behaviour, and perhaps had never even heard of this software.

ranks = '23456789TJQKA'
if len(hand) > 5: return max([evaluate(hand[:i] + hand[i+1:]) for i in range(len(hand))])
score, ranks = zip(*sorted((cnt, rank) for rank, cnt in {ranks.find(r): ''.join(hand).count(r) for r, _ in hand}.items())[::-1])
if len(score) == 5: # if there are 5 different ranks it could be a straight or a flush (or both)
if ranks[0:2] == (12, 3): ranks = (3, 2, 1, 0, -1) # adjust if 5 high straight
score = ([1,(3,1,2)],[(3,1,3),(5,)])[len({suit for _, suit in hand}) == 1][ranks[0] - ranks[4] == 4] # high card, straight, flush, straight flush
return score, ranks
