Every aspect of the mixer, including fees, anonymity, log policies, minimum/maximum limits etc. will be reviewed in-depth in this piece.
If you’re searching for a mixer that can make your Bitcoins anonymous, this piece may be of help.
Before we even start, let me tell you the mixer has extremely low minimum requirements and similarly low fees. You even get to control the fees.
There’s an advanced mode that offers more anonymity than most other mixers as well.
But hey, let’s get you a much closer look into the mixer.
What is Mixero.io?
The “Mix” in Mixero stands for its primary purpose, mixing, of Bitcoins. In other words, if you’ve got some coins you’d like to be cleaned/mixed, Mixero claims being capable to do it.
The process is pretty simple, you send in unclean coins (or even clean ones) and you receive coins not linked to the coins you sent.
What are Mixer.io’s primary features?
If you’re in a hurry, or need a quick rundown of the mixer, here’s a list:
- Website: https://mixero.io/
- Tor access: Yes
- Minimum mixing deposit: 0.002BTC
- Fees: 0.7% minimum, 4.7% maximum.
- Supports other Cryptocurrencies: No
- Fund-distribution control: Yes
- Time-delays: Partially controlled
- No logs: Yes.
Let’s get started then?
How does Mixero work? – (Dual modes)
Most of you on this Mxero review already know how a mixer works. However, Mixero has its own way of doing things.
Sure, it does work in the traditional way a mixer works as well. That is by mixing your coins in a larger pool of coins sent in by other users and giving you unrelated coins. This is called the “CoinJoin” mode.
However, it also has an “advanced” mode. When you choose this mode, Mixero converts your coins to Monero, then the Monero is converted back to Bitcoins. These clean Bitcoins are then sent to you.
The advanced mode adds a ton more anonymity to your coins and makes it pretty much impossible to trace.
Does Mixero track/log IP addresses? – (No log policy + Tor access)
No Bitcoin tumbler review would be complete without discussing its log policies, would it?
Mixero is a “no log” Bitcoin mixer. Meaning, it doesn’t have logs of:
- Your unclean coins
- Your IP address
- The new address you choose to send your coins to.
On top of that, it also has a Tor URL. Meaning, you can access it over the TOR network. If you choose to do that, your browser itself will hide your IP address.
What’s the smallest and biggest possible mix?
Mixero is for everyone, even if you’re an average middle-class desk jokey, or a multi-millionaire.
I say that because Mixero accepts mixes as small as 0.002BTC. That I believe is a number each one of you reading this Mixero.io review will find useful, won’t you?
As for the biggest possible mix, well that’s a massive 250 BTC.
How much does Mixero charge for its services?
Like any other Bitcoin mixer out there, Mixero isn’t free. However, it does have a pretty interesting fee structure.
For starters, the customer gets full control of how much fee he or she would like to pay.
As the screenshot shows, it uses a slider. You can reduce the fee by moving the slider left or increase it by moving right.
The smallest amount you can pay is 0.7% which I’d say is a very good number. Most other mixers I’ve used generally do not accept <1% fee.
The maximum fee you can pay is 4.7%. You can also pay any random amount between these two brackets.
Although, the mixing mode you’ve selected plays a large part in your fees.
If you select the “CoinJoin” mode, you pay an additional 0.0002BTC fee on top of the fee you’ve chosen to pay.
On the “Advanced” mode, things are different. You do not get to set your own fee. Rather, you’ll be paying a fixed 1.928%. There’s no additional fee when you’re using the advanced mode for mixing your coins.
How many addresses can I use to receive my funds?
The anonymity of your mixes increases tremendously with more output addresses, doesn’t it? The more address you use, more parts your funds are broken down into, more addresses for any tracer to track.
Mixero.io allows 5 output addresses. Each input you send, can be broken down into 5 different parts and sent to these 5 addresses.
Do note that additional addresses are only supported for the “Coinjoin” mode. In the “Advanced” mode of the mixer, you only get to use 1 address.
Do you get to control how much funds you get in each address?
So, let’s say you’re using 5 addresses. Do you get control over how much funds are sent to each address exactly? Fortunately you do.
Mixero gives you an “edit” button next to each address that you enter. Clicking on that makes the fund-percent editable.
As soon as you edit the percent of fund for any address, the other percent values for all the available addresses are auto-adjusted so the total is 100%.
This is a pretty useful feature specially if you’re using the mixer to send funds directly to multiple parties and not to your own addresses.
Do you get to select a time-delay for the mixes?
Time-delays are basically the amount of time that a mixer waits before sending your clean deposits to you. The higher the delay, the longer the gap between your unclean deposit and the clean output, the more anonymity you get.
Well, that somewhat can be adjusted on Mixero even though it’s not a direct feature.
As is known, your Bitcoin transaction speed depends on the fee you’re paying. Hence, by paying more or less you get to control how soon or late you wish to receive your funds.
Can I get my clean funds sent to me from multiple addresses?
You certainly can. In fact, this is one of Mixero.io’s best and rarest features.
Mixero offers a “random input” button on its page. No complex settings or options. It can simply be enabled or disabled.
Enabling this means your clean funds will be sent to you from more than one addresses instead of just one.
Surprisingly, it’s a free feature. It doesn’t cost “extra”. Although this does make the “minimum possible fee” a 1.2%. Which I’d say is pretty okay considering that’s something you’d pay for a mix anyway, specially if you’re randomizing your fee for each mix.
Does Mixero offer a letter of guarantee?
It most certainly does.
For the uninitiated, the LoG is something that serves two super important features.
First, it proves that the deposit address you get from the mixer is indeed from the mixer. Meaning, if you sent your funds there, the mixer can’t deny that the address isn’t theirs or they didn’t receive the funds.
If they do, you can use the LoG to prove the address + your transaction on the Blockchain, and ruin their reputation. In this particular business, reputation is probably the most important asset a business can have. Hence, it’s like your assurance.
Secondly, the LoG can help you get support for your transaction. Because no accounts are involved and your IP address isn’t logged, how do you tell support which mix you’re talking about?
That’s where the LoG comes in. With this, the support team can help you out if there are issues.
Does Mixero provide support?
We were just talking of support so let’s address the question briefly?
Yes, Mixero.io does provide support to all its clients. It’s not over a live-chat, for obvious reasons but they can be reached over an e-mail.
You’re free to use anonymous e-mail accounts as the company itself uses an anonymous Protonmail account for the support.
That will be all as far as this Mixero.io review goes folks. Is it a mixer you should use? That decision is entirely up to you. However, it does seem capable of mixing your Bitcoins while keeping you anonymous, wouldn’t you agree?
You get 5 output addresses, the fund-percent is controlled by you, and even the more advanced mixing mode.
Then there’s the “no log policy” as well as Tor access. All of this make up for a pretty decent Bitcoin tumbler, wouldn’t you agree?
Even the minimum limit is set pretty low, anyone who even knows of Bitcoin can pretty much afford it.
So yes, in my opinion it sure is a mixer you should use (for legal reasons only). That’s all for now as far as this Mixero.io review folks. Do check it out for a closer view?
