The site was run by known thieves who originally ran a credit card scam what were they expecting?

Baffling shit tbh.
Ultimately all bitcoin transactions are public, stored in the Bitcoin network. It's down to the individual how many hoops they want to put in the way but IP addresses involved in bitcoin transfers can be logged because it's a peer-to-peer network.

So yeah, you can be traced but it's a bit more complex than:

Brick Top: Do you know these tits, Errol?
Errol: I know a lot of tits, Guv'nor. But I don't know any quite as fucking stupid as these two.
Brick Top: John?
John: I can't help, Guv.
[Tyrone pokes his head in the door]
Errol: Ah, Tyrone.
Errol, John: You silly fat bastard.

Worried?
