Why We Need Your Addresses
Dash supports unique transaction types where Dash from one person is "mixed" with the Dash of two other persons. When you choose to mix your Dash with other Dash users, a special transaction is formed called
PRIVATE_SEND_DENOMINATE, or as it’s commonly called: mixing. Mixing helps to anonymize your Dash and to obscure its history but makes accounting nearly impossible without additional insight.
Mixed transactions consist of an equal number of inputs and outputs in both quantity and amounts but not all inputs are owned by any single mixer and not all outputs are owned by any single mixer. To track (from an accounting perspective) which inputs and outputs are owned by you, we need the list of the addresses in your wallet that have taken part in a transaction. Using that list, we can assign cost basis, valuations, gains/losses, and tax obligations for mixed transactions.
