Gabriel Custodiet speaks to Dgoon, creator of Anon Shop, a Monero-only website that forwards packages to a designated location of your choosing. Dgoon explains the basics of the service, how he handles your data, and how he runs a trust-based company. He also explains why he’s one of the only people to create something like it, and offers other insights such as how to “age” Amazon accounts as privacy users.
