Consortium Blockchain solutions provide a different philosophy, they are usually not anonym at all, like with built in identity services at Hyperledger.
HOWEVER, this does not mean your activity is 100% anonymous but rather pseudonymous i.e. you operate under another name like “0x7891E7682e00d5760b127887A00eE334B8C759d8”. As long as this pseudonym cannot be linked to you, your personal identity remains secret. For example, let’s say the authorities seized an enterprise operating using Bitcoin. The authorities could see which Bitcoin addresses sent money to this enterprise using the public blockchain. They could then cross-reference these Bitcoin addresses with information from third parties (like a Bitcoin exchange) to try and link a personal identity to the Bitcoin address. Another way for identity leaks to occur is when interacting with an online merchant that uses browser cookies, a common web tracking tool. If the merchant is not careful, their cookies can expose personal information (such as email) and Bitcoin addresses, allowing an eavesdropper sniffing the cookies to link the identities.
