PayJoin is a coin mixing technology based on the Bitcoin improvement proposal (BIP) 78. BlueWallet users will Now be able to mix their crypto assets in a single transaction to make it harder to track them.
“Unlike a normal bitcoin transaction, Payjoin packages input data from both the sender and the recipient, and the recipient sends themselves additional coins,” the developers explained.
