If your information were real, BITCOIN would be a failure, and that is not the case. Said this.. i back soon with full answer
I had to delete your referral link of that page that you recommend to safeguard the rules of the forum..
Genesis-mining.com (Without the ref)
The blockchain records (among other things) the ip address
of the transaction, the amount being sent, the address it came from and the addresses it went to. (Destination and change addresses, if any)
Should you wish to remain anon, you'll have to use a "clean" machine (one which can not be traced to you) and a way to use an ip address not associated with yourself. Contrary to what media outlets have blasted for nearly a decade, bitcoin is completely open and not (inherently) anonymous.
The blockchains will preserve the information, until such time as law enforcement gets up to speed and can data-mine it.

Bitcoin is often described as an anonymous currency because it is possible to send and receive bitcoins without giving any personally identifying information. However, achieving reasonable anonymity with Bitcoin can be quite complicated and perfect anonymity may be impossible. Bitcoin is pseudonymous
