General XMR facts, technical details and general information about Monero crypto currency
The name of the Monero virtual currency has been borrowed from the Esperanto, in which "Monero" literally means a coin or currency. Token's first release has taken place in April, 2014. Contrary to Bitcoin's emission policy, the total amount of Monero tokens is not limited to a certain number: 18.4 million Monero tokens have been initially released, subsequent mining is to bring 0.6 new Monero coins for every two-minute block. Such policy was developed so that the miners could maintain the Monero blockchain even after the completion of the main emission.
Currently, cryptocurrency is primarily used for anonymous transactions. Monero virtual currency competed with such majors as Dash, LibertyCoin and AnonCoin, all of which strive for the maximum possible transactions anonymity. CryptoNote, used in the Monero blockchain, uses ring signature technology, a highly sophisticated scheme that may require the use of a range of different public keys for verification.
The main defining feature of Monero is its anonymity (it's founder, by the way, is also unknown). Thanks to a unique protocol, called CryptoNote, Monero users can make transactions with a very high level of secrecy. The sender, receiver and size of the transaction are recorded on a public ledger, but are concealed to reportedly make them untraceable.
This characteristic has made Monero an attractive coin for cybercriminals, e.g. the attackers responsible for the infamous WannaCry virus demanded payments in Monero. However, Monero has other interesting features, such as unlimited scalability, which few cryptocurrencies can boast.
Monero (XMR) is a private, secure, and untraceable cryptocurrency that was launched April 18th, 2014. With Monero, it is said you are in complete control of your funds and privacy no one else can see anyone else's balances or transactions.
Monero is cash for a connected world. It’s fast, private, and secure. With Monero, you are your own bank. You can spend safely, knowing that others cannot see your balances or track your activity.

I really think that XMR is a long-term hold. Privacy coins had their time in the sun, but they’ve become irrelevant since no one cares if you can hide your money. Everyone is focused on projects that are partnering with banks, not shunning them. Of...

XMR definitely has everything that's needed to be everyone's favorite altcoin. I guess, there's no need to mention the total anonymity of transactions in this private coin and its superior security. Monero has also been doing quite well on the...

This is the place to park your money. The IRS along with every financial agency is going to try tax crypto like crazy. Once the market stabilizes, and the price stops moving so crazy I’ll put every cent i have into XMR. XMR is revolutionary because...
