Bitcoin in general

Bitcoin-transactions are sent to Bicoin-Addresses, which consist of a long alphanumeric sequence that seems random. Because all Bitcoin-transactions can be retrieved from the P2P network, and because even those sequences can be matched when equal, recipients of funds will often create a new Receiving Address, in some cases one for every transaction.

Because it is a crypto-currency, public lists of transactions are not meaningful by default, beyond revealing the Addresses used. They cannot typically be associated back to specific people.
