Adding new Q&A to the FAQ (documentation) #1717

Added some Q&A on the general beginner level.

I’m a little worried that I am breaking the existing structure of the FAQ (“Will my coins be fully private after mixing with Wasabi?” might belong into the “post-mix” section, f.ex), but it is made up by the significance of those questions to a beginner who just heard about Wasabi/coinjoin, that’s why I think it’s good to have them on top. If the “pre-install” section is wrong for those, perhaps we could create a new section called “general” or something like that?

Structure is ok, I think. I've done a couple of nitpicking, feel free to review and ask some questions if you don't understand why I did something.

Good nitpicking! 👍

Two nitpicks from my side:

Both the sending address, the coinjoin input and the receiving address, the coinjoin output are controlled by your own private keys.

Due to the current structure of the sentence, an user unfamiliar with the technicalities might be confused which of the terms belong together and that "coinjoin input" is just another name for "sending address" in this context (a comma might mean that it's just a separate term being listed here). I think writing it like this makes it a little less ambiguous:

Both the sending address (the coinjoin input) and the receiving address (the coinjoin output) are controlled by your own private keys.`

In this scenario, Wasabi will barely make any improvement to your privacy, it still have a protective effect against unsophisticated observers.

Here it either needs to be "it still HAS" or "it still WILL have". Also this part of the sentence needs to be prefaced by "although", imo. I think this is better:

In this scenario, Wasabi will barely make any improvement to your privacy, although it still will have a protective effect against unsophisticated observers.

Hope that makes sense :)

Not sure what the best practice for GitHub here is (am noob, sorry), do I just create a new pull request (if the changes make sense in the first place), or can it be changed within this current PR? Or otherwise please feel free to just change it yourself if that's easier :)
