i know that doing so right now would lead governments to fight bitcoin even harder, but i’m wondering if any bips have been proposed or if there is talk among developers for including one in the future?

I dont think so. First layer is kinda meant to be transparent. Privacy will only be on layer 2s.

What might happen in the future is a way to encrypt the identity of users. Similar to what Spiral is trying to do with web5 and decentralized identifiers (identities are verifiable but personal data is encrypted and backed by IPFS.) As long as supply and the ledger are transparent, this might not be a problem…whether I’m right or wrong, definitely open to hearing thoughts on this.

Web 5 is a project that I’m very excited about, as it seems to be a way to build a decentralized internet  secured by Bitcoin. Just hoping it turns out how it seems, and not DINO

I think most of the privacy features will be on LN.

blockstream is trying to make a bip that creates coinjoins by default and totally obfuscates change amounts from transfer amounts.  can't find a link for you as i'm on the move, but google it, i think it's Gregory Maxwell's project

I think if we find a way to make Confidential Transactions more scalable and without any potential inflation issues it may be implemented.

But I don't think there's a magic bullet.

It will be a combination of signature aggregation making Coinjoin more economical, usage or Coinswap, improvements in the Lightning Network to make it more anonymous that are possible with Taproot.
