Understanding BURST traceability
Burst works with an unprecedented level of transparency that most people are unfamiliar with. All Burst transactions are public, traceable and permanently stored in the Burst network. Burst addresses are the only information used to define where BURST or tokens are assigned and where they are sent. These addresses are created privately by each user’s wallet. However, once addresses are used, they become public through the history of all transactions in which they are involved. Anyone can view the balance and all transactions of any address. Since users usually have to reveal their identity in order to receive services or goods, Burst addresses cannot remain completely anonymous.
