Newsletters: add 62 (2019-09-04) #219
Had a quick read through, it's a very good concise summary of the main idea, better than either that of mine, probably.
"map of addresses and public keys" - I think using the term 'map' here is a bit suboptimal in terms of understanding for the reader. Maybe better something like 'scans the blockchain to make lists of candidate public keys, either from reused addresses or from inferring connections between inputs an outputs, or perhaps via some watermarking in transactions'. Or ... a shorter version of that, if you prefer :)
I agree with your de-emphasis of encryption here ('perhaps encrypted') given our earlier conversation. Perhaps 'perhaps' is too faint though :) But no worries, that's fine.
But one last point - I do think the use of anonymous network connections to the server should probably be mentioned. Just because it serves to further emphasize that the "bulletin board" server is just that; identities or accounts are not involved, at least not within the proposal as-is.
