In 2009 few people could imagine how public their financial affairs would become, more so that it was just 50 bitcoins, almost worthless at the time. In this particular case, it appears the owner of that 50 bitcoins has made no attempt to mix their coins, so perhaps they hold DCG's values of transparency-first. I mean, it makes it easier to explain to the bank that you're not Satoshi, right?
But who cares to predict the political landscape in eleven years time from now? Or the capabilities of AI and machine learning to decipher and extract more info from a transparent blockchain than was originally thought. This is very much like the introduction of DNA, that past crimes may suddenly become solved. Do you have faith that a transparency-first philosophy will still be your mantra in eleven years from now? Or do you finally accept that we are in an arms race against the blockchain analysis companies? Perhaps a privacy-first blockchain will also be cracked, but we should at least attempt to shield our users privacy without making them jump through hoops. We're not protecting them from the present but from a potentially hostile future.
