Bitmixer.io was the largest Bitcoin mixing (tumbling) service provider from 2014 to 2017.[1] It operated with its own large reserve of bitcoins which allows it to facilitate a high volume mixing service, though all data was handled centrally through BitMixer servers, putting privacy at risk.[2] Activity was postponed on July 24, 2017 due to a change in the owner's ideology; they stated that they wanted "to make (the) Bitcoin ecosystem more clean"; though some have speculated that this is due to government pressure.[3]
