Yes, Bitcoin transactions are anonymous. But, if we look at it technically. Hand to hand cash transaction is still much secure.

Sure, the identity of the user who is involved in the buying and selling with the help of Bitcoin can stay anonymous. But, guess what? There will always be trail which will lead to the transaction and to the wallets address. Isn’t that a shocker??

Bitcoins are not like lose cash. They are stored in a wallet and that’s exactly you can’t lose the Bitcoins. But, it’s possible to lose your wallet. If it happens, that just means that the Bitcoins are out of the circulation and are not being used. No one will be able to find the private key you need. It’s impossible and the key is what is needed to access each wallet.

So, when a wallet is lost forever. The missing Bitcoins are cancelled out of the law of demand and supply. Which in result actually helps to increase the value of the Bitcoins that are remaining. That’s how the entire process is compensated on an economical scale. It’s a pretty smart system if you ask us!
