Bitcoin’s greatest technological achievement was the blockchain - a distributed ledger that provided anonymity to anyone using it. The blockchain is “anonymous” because no one know who owns a Bitcoin address, but Bitcoin isn’t private.

Seeing your IP address means that, though they don’t know who owns the Bitcoin address, someone can see that you connected.
