There is tons of stuff that can go wrong:
- not using Tor Browser
- Tor over Tor
- identity correlation through circuit sharing
- malconfigured firewall
- IPv6 leak
- network time synchronization

And lots of questions open up:
- How to configure hidden services?

Look into https://www.whonix.org (Free Software & Open Source) - we've
