>I use VPN to Tor
Keep in mind that End-to-End traffic correlation is still the weak point in low latency onion circuit. Are you to trust a few dozen commercial VPN servers over a couple thousand specifically maintained unindexed Tor Bridge Relays? I think not, as that would make traffic analysis more likely and more statistically powerful. Give the link a read.
The only true way to attain some form of 'true' anonymity in this age is chained High Latency connections (i.e. snailmail pace), using chained remailers with randomized time delays. Or use that remailer function with I2Bote on I2P with the same effect but has the added benefit of more users providing cover traffic to the network.
(LocalMonero, this escrow has an i2p address and clearnet site too)
I would use XMR for local reputation-based exchanges when you have the chance. I don't recommend holding onto any volatile crypto for a longtime though, unless you want speculate on a cryptocoin. I'd convert soon into cash then whatever else.

DEX is a good way to distribute trust if you are skeptical of central exchanges handling your trades and private info. A good thing to know it exists. Some exchanges are more designed with your data privacy in mind, some saving only necessary transaction data locally on your machine.
Is one (DEX) D.ecentralized EX.change that uses P2P over Tor for its nodes.
Take it with some salt but THIS got me hard: "Bisq does not hold any bitcoins. All are held in multisignature addresses rather than a Bisq-controlled wallet. National currency is transferred directly from one trader to the other. Bisq uses a peer-to-peer network over Tor. This means there are no servers to be hacked or DDoS'd. Bisq does not know traders. No data is stored on who trades with whom. Bisq does not require registration. This means privacy is maintained, there are no “approval” wait times, and identity theft is impossible. Bisq is not a company. It is an open-source project organized as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO)."
Aside from legitimate activities, money laundering shouldn't just be for the rich. All citizens should have the same opportunities to break the law or we get corrupt stagnation.
You should however realize that it is up to you to find the best means to convert your funds into what you "NEED" and not live beyond your means. Be wise.
