Previous thread >>29430368

Welcome to the Monero General, dedicated to the discussion of the world's leading decentralized p2p privacy cryptocurrency!

Monero is secure, low-fee, and borderless, meaning users can send XMR around the globe despite corrupt governments or broken financial systems. Innovative privacy features such as Ring Signatures, Stealth Addresses, and Ring CT (hidden tx amounts) ensure that Monero's blockchain is obfuscated -- the financial history of all Monero users is encrypted from the prying eyes of adversaries on a public blockchain, with transactions being visible only by a Monero user willingly providing a view key for a specific transaction.

Monero has also improved upon the scaling downsides of current popular cryptos. To avoid high fees, dynamic block size ensures that the size of the blocks will increase as the amount of txs increases. Further, the mining network algorithm RandomX establishes that anybody with a CPU can participate in mining, preventing the ASIC miner domination that creates a high barrier of entry. Lastly, the mining network will be preserved by Tail Emission -- instead of the block reward falling to zero like with Bitcoin, the block reward will gradually approach 0.6 XMR in May 2022, where it will forever stay. This constant linear inflation means the inflation rate will asymptotically go to zero while continuing to provide an incentive to miners to maintain the network.

If you still have questions, feel free to ask and a MoneroChad will be with you shortly.

Lol what a shitcoin, while other coins get a 10% correction XMR gets a 50% skydive. No one believes it'll go up. This whole thread is just a cope.
This is just me being objective, you can say "b-but it's the only one you can use as currency..." No one cares, no one buying crypto right now is doing it to buy stuff or do smart contracts, EVERYONE who's in the market is only in it to make money. You guys are autists for not realizing this.

It's not that the market is "wrong", it's that there's nothing to be "wrong" about. The market is not a mechanism to reward the best product, it's a mechanism to reward the people who read the market the best.

Cope, you know you wish it went up. You know there's something deeply wrong with a coin when it's the ONLY major coin missing the bull run.
All of these nerds saying "The long run", "The technology", are just completely deflecting the criticism.

Don't get me wrong I do have money on it, but if Monero keeps missing bull runs like this, it WILL go to #30 market cap, then #40, then #50... Until it stabilizes as a #120 shitcoin that never goes up and people have given up on.
Despite wide adoption on the dark net, Monero is still just the 22nd market cap. Think about it. Despite being in actual use, there are 21 shitcoins who perform better than it, and no one has a good answer why.

>>29451509
It's gonna keep going down. If you're really paranoid just open a limit order for like $190 or $180, but don't buy it now while it's still going down, buy when it's going up.

No because its behaviour is clearly distinguished from the shitcoins since it moves almost independently from their bull runs. To me that's a good sign if anything. It's certainly not a bad sign to me.
>>
>>29451381
>What's average transaction speed?
block time is on avarage 2 minutes
monero doesn't have "replace-by-fee" like bitcoin, so true 0-conf transactions are possible (takes a few seconds for network propagation)
received monero are locked for 10 blocks (20min) untill they become spendable (for security reasons, I think this restriction may be reduced in the future)
>>
>>29452576
but that's not true. XMR's value curve is EXACTLY the same as BTC's and a hundred other coins. There are a handful of currencies that aren't currently mimicking BTC's ups and downs, and XMR isn't one of them
>>
>>29451830
>Despite being in actual use, there are 21 shitcoins who perform better than it, and no one has a good answer why.
Also, this is because it is in actual use. Because it's widely used on the darknet, there is zero need to hype Monero. This bull run is driven by hype, though, and it means that Monero has not been caught up in the bull run like the rest of the shitcoins which work purely on hype.

Fine, I'll engage in your deflection.
Yes, I'm confident holding ETH, BTC, LINK and even complete shit stuff like LBRY even more so than I'm confident holding XMR.
Some of those because of the technology, and some of those because there are big players with interest in keeping the price high, so I trust that they'll succeed on it.

The tech being good is only a very minor part of what makes a coin increase in price, the main driver is "Do people believe that the price will go up?"
People call the market "irrational", but they're the ones being autistic by not realizing it. Instead of crying because of DOGE, adapt to the reality that this is the market, the things that matter are not the tech, they're other things, and XMR DOESN'T HAVE THEM.

>>29452150
No. You can see the block reward for each block, just sum it up.
"Emission" on https://localmonero.co/blocks it does it automatically. That's how many coins are in circulation currently, 17,846,609.

Whoever told you this was probably talking about an old bug in cryptonode. https://www.getmonero.org/2017/05/17/disclosure-of-a-major-bug-in-cryptonote-based-currencies.html

>>29452576
Hm...
Can you elaborate on that? Why would it be bad to have speculation on XMR? It's just people believing that the price will go up and buying it because of it, no harm is done.

>>29452847
>Because it's widely used on the darknet, there is zero need to hype Monero.
There IS need to hype it if you want your coin to be used for stuff other than buying CP.
It's common sense that if you want your coin to be used, you need good tech AND marketing.
Also you can't explain why it's going down of all things, you can only explain why it's not going up. It going down means people are ok selling it at a loss, means people don't have faith on the coin. And probably rightfully so, honestly.

Don't count Monero out just yet. I can tell you exactly why Monero is going to pump hard as hell in the next few years:

Governments are in bad fiscal shape and are going to start harvesting the inflationary crops they've sown in assets like stock and real estate. Look out for discussions around federal property taxes, capital gains taxes (maybe even unrealized), wealth taxes etc. Governments know exactly where are the inflation has gone, even as they carefully constructed CPI in order to to hide it.

The capital owning class has done extremely well thanks to central banks in last few decades, but the bill is coming due. Monero is one of the best available tools for evading capital controls when the feds start getting grabby. Lots of people with lots of money are going to be scrambling for the exits very soon, Monero will likely be their escape tunnel out of fiat, and personally, I intend to front-run the shit out of them.
>>
>>29453508
>(maybe even unrealized)
I believe Biden's team is already considering this.
>>
>>29453508
I don't understand what you just said. Do you mean taxes will be raised, and there will be rich people buying Monero to... Hide money?
Truly rich people already hide it offshore and everything is ok, I don't think your scenario is very realistic. It's not gonna be a "surprise" for them that they have to pay taxes, rich people ALREADY have an infrastructure to avoid it, they've been doing it for decades. Nothing is changing.

I bought at 280 and now's looking like a great time to buy high and sell low
>>
>>29453860

I don't think they move as much money offshore so much these days, for 2 reasons. One is that is has been getting harder and harder to do, for example the US has already cracked down on a lot of the older techniques for hiding money like swiss bank accounts. Obama turned the screws on them to finally close that one. The second is that it really hasn't been necessary anyway, since their gains haven't faced much taxation, so they've felt pretty safe letting their money sit in US stocks and real estate since their taxes have been so low for so long.

If that changes there'll be tremendous pressure to get out, and they'll have to find new escape routes. Privacy cryptos are the most likely candidate.

I've been in the game over a year, fren. The steady trend upwards is my lighthouse in the storm.

I may be handing over 6 figures/year of my father's hard-earned savings to academic bureaucrats. I may be living in immigrant-housing-tier dormitories for 150% of the normal rent in this area. I may even be spending more thousands of dollars on disgusting food cooked by niggers who I have witnessed handling raw chicken and then putting out plates at the buffet without washing their hands.

How likely is it that the XMR/BTC ratio will drop below 0.0034?
>>
>>29457608
what do you mean, those are the coins i hold lol what's wrong with that i thought everyone did that

>>29457641
No one knows but my opinion is that it's extremely likely to happen eventually, because XMR doesn't follow on BTC's speculation for some reason. You could have something like XMR at $200 and BTC at $60k very easily for example, that would be 0.00333 XMR/BTC.

Do you mean dropping below that today? It's going back up so I think it's not happening, gonna have to wait at least a few days for that to happen.

I'm not touching ETH, seems far to boated and high priced for a utility token. LINK might be ok as it can work with any other smart contract, don't know enough about it to justify holding any.
XMR is cash, BTC might be gold, ETH/LINK are something else. Nothing wrong with holding coins with different markets, but obviously some xmr holder disagree (as they believe crypto must be cash, otherwise it's a scam)

ETH is not about the technology, it's only about the hype. It's gonna rise a lot when ETH 2.0 gets released. Either way I feel confident just leaving it there.
Same thing for BTC, it's about the hype not the tech. Now that big banks and big companies (like Tesla) have a stake on it, they have an interest in having the price rise.

>>29458733

See, I only buy things I intend to hold for at least one year. Consequently I will not buy anything based on hype alone. I hold some BTC only as a hedge only. I think many anons who frequent /xmr/ think the same and that might be the reason why other coins are looked down upon.

All coins lose in satoshis against BTC when it get pumped. They lose in dollars when it dives.
10 years later and all retail crypto is still just toys to play around with that you buy or sell based on what BTC is doing.

The thing is when you buy shitcoins, every dip triggers a psychological panic as you think this might be a terminal death spiral.

>>29460231
>So you envision a world when you can buy food and clothes with XMR?
Yes. I think is is likely that 10 years down the road crypto breaches the early adpter threshold, ie. 15% of the population (in developed contries) has crypto and is comfortable using it for purchases. Then it will make business sense to accept crypto payments in brick and mortar stores. Streetfood might be the first to adopt it, than cafes and other places that attract young-ish people. Once it is somewhat prooven for practical use supermarkets will join because theire profit margins are extremly tight (like 1-2% or so) and even if just 10% of customers pay with crypto the supermarket gets an easy 0.1-0.2% points better margin, an improvement of about 10%.
The one thing I don't know is if it will be monero or just some centralized shitcoin.

>>29460231
>And the government is just gonna stand around and do nothing about it?
Monero has the prisinors dilemma on it's side. "Doing something about monero" would require good cooporation between all relevant contries which I consider highly unlikely.

>>29460231
>Yeah but that's my point [...]public opinion is the only thing that matters.
For the price right now? Sure. For what the crypto space will look like 5 years down? I don't think most cryptos will be still standing - but I'm certain that monero holder and developers will not give up easily. The network is build to be as resilient as possibel and not to give up easily. This is where the value lies, which is unfortunatly invisible to most casual "investors" during good times.

You seem alright, so I'll recommend to look into the topic of finite vs. infitnite games; simon sinek has some good presentations on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tye525dkfi8 orhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vX2iVIJMFQ

but you cannot see how much each wallet holds, meaning that if there's a bug in how transactions are handled (e.g. when you send someone 1.337 moneros he gets 14.88 moneros for whatever reason) you can't audit the number of moneros in circulation.

Fair enough. But for non-private coins to be an issue for normies it would need to be easy to link an identity to a wallet address, which they don't know how to do. I don't foresee normies being concerned with privacy any time soon. Some of them even have Facebook.

>but if you want widespread adoption

Widespread adoption would be nice but its not essential. As has been mentioned here hundreds of times already, analysts expect most of Monero's future growth to stem from black money influxes i.e. organized crime adoption, not institutional capital or normie adoption.

Globally, organized crime generates $2 trillion annually, Monero only needs a $184 billion market cap to be worth $10K. And we're already seeing major crime syndicates moving into crypto.....

>$1m in cash seized as man arrested over alleged money laundering via cryptocurrency
>February 22, 2021 — 5.58pm

“Police will allege in court the man directed a criminal syndicate to launder money by converting cash into bitcoin on his behalf, totalling $5,479,300,” police said in a statement on Monday.

Detective Superintendent Matt Craft said the group allegedly operates as money launderers for hire and he anticipates further arrests over the next four weeks.

https://www.baka.com.au/national/nsw/1m-in-cash-seized-as-man-arrested-over-alleged-money-laundering-via-cryptocurrency-20210222-p574sb.html

So Bitcoin is still easier for them to use for now but all this kind of stuff will inevitably end up in Monero's corner, just like the darknet black markets.

If anyone is holding alts right now (that includes the ancap retards in XMR) they are morons.
The formula is very fucking simple.
>BTC go up
Hold BTC cause your alts are only going to go up if you are lucky. Case in point: fucking XMR
>BTC go down
exit into stablecoins cause BTC is going down so alts are going to get absolutely raped
>BTC crabs
this is altseason. Most alts are probably going up but some will more than others.

Disclaimer: XMR and ETH are my chosen alts, and I like XMR the most. But you'd have to be retarded to have held XMR over the last few months goddamn.


The formula is that fucking simple, fags.

I dont want to dump on XMR. Its my favorite alt. But people need to realize the market here is still absolutely dominated by BTC and what BTC does. A tiny fart of BTC's marketcap in Monero's direction will cause it to skyrocket.

I do think we might be entering alt time like 2017 again. And when that happens I will be dumping into XMR. Of all alts I think it has the most potential in another alt season. Not sure. Basically all alts are at all time lows vs BTC. And BTC's getting clogged up just like it did last time.

Or BTC could continue dumping. Or continue rising lmao and XMR will go into the .002 range.

Is there another site like Morphtoken? Their XMR infrastructure is under maintenance right now.

Would that be legal in places with decent gun laws like the US or Switzerland?

Any firearm with a 3D printed "serialed part" is legally considered homemade in the US. This makes AR lowers popular to print because they're serialed parts that aren't pressure bearing.

i had a literal schizo friend, who was really early into bitcoin, tell me about XMR in like 2016. sadly he is dead now, guy would have already been probably a billionaire with all his btc and xmr

finally bought some last year and intending to slowly buy more
>>
>>29491180
Printing parts you can legally buy doesn't seem that smart to me. The savings are likely not worth the associated risk. It may be an option with an opressive goverment, though

I’ve got a couple hundred XPB, it’s a gambling game token that I picked up before gas fees were completely fucked, I’m pretty sure ETHs run made it a stillborn project, though. Also I have like $20 in BTC stuck mid-transaction trying to buy XMR on changenow.

isn't that less than a transaction fee kek
>>
>>29483737
For long-term wealth storage I use XMR and physical silver.

For pure speculation I invested $5-$10 in about 30 different cryptocurrencies with tiny marketcap in the hope that one or two of them will do a 100x or even more, and I hold a substantial amount of XCM, DNA, BNB and PRQ.

Being a greedy prick, I set the transaction fee to 37sat/byte. I just wanted my dust to be in XMR, not BTC. Now I’m suffering.

That remains to be seen over the next few days if XMR will crab/ keep at 200 or follow BTC.

I thought it would have crashed far below 200 by now but not yet apperently.

Atmic swaps when?

Here some bullish news from Germoney:
https://www.btc-echo.de/so-will-die-bundesregierung-die-krypto-anonymitaet-einschraenken/
> Accordingly, all crypto transactions that exceed a volume of 1,000 euros should be reported.
These madman literally want everybody to report all crypto transactions over 1000 Eurobucks.

I believe this will sooner or later cause a big run to anonymity. I believe most small people/traders only didn't care about covering their trail since there was not such widespread use of tracking tools in the past and no specific laws targeting them.
Now that they are in a kind of direct breach of law they will look for active ways to avoid appearing on the radar.

I can already hear them sing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuP2oTZMt1M

This article should be essential reading for everybody in crypto:

>The Bit Short: Inside Crypto’s Doomsday Machine

"This is the story of a Bitcoin trade — the most financially impactful trade I’ve ever made in my life. It’s also the story of the deep-yet-frantic investigation of the crypto ecosystem that led me to make that trade. And it’s the story of what’s really going on in crypto — and what we should do about it.

If you own meaningful amounts of cryptocurrency or you’re considering buying some, you’re the reason I wrote this. Please do read to the end."

What does everyone think about the Edge wallet (on Android) vs Cake Wallet (Android) vs potentially any other desktop or mobile wallet that is open source AND has exchange features/acts as a multiwallet etc?

Stuff like Exodus , Feather , Kraken if I recall are proprietary but seem to act as multiwallets for stuff besides XMR and BTC, solutions to cash out into fiat etc. How does Cakewallet do with this? How about Edge?

I started with Edge because it was FOSS and had these features including exchange and the like, but I don't know if its fees are too high or its not advisable. How does it compare? It seems to be right there on the Monero suggested light wallet list on the homepage.

Both Edge and Cake Wallet are pretty solid. Edge supports more coins if you're into that. They also have their own "login/password" master password that encrypts your account on their servers (if you lose those, you lose access to your wallet) but it also neatly provides you options to export private keys for the coins it supports (only tested with monero and bitcoin).
Cake Wallet is a lot simpler and supports only monero and bitcoin which are the coins that actually matter anyway. But if you're into having a bunch of altcoins this can be a negative. I also like that they create and use Electrum-based bitcoin wallet/seed which makes it easy to open the exact same wallet on my Electrum wallet on my laptop. Same thing with the monero wallet/seed.

That's fucking bonkers. Why would you EVER announce plans for this in advance? If it looks like it's going to pass, instant flight to privacy.

Open source is an inviolable first principle of cryptocurrency. No source, no trust.

Btc ratio +5%
>>
>everyone freaking out and acting like this is some massive crash
Why? Seems to be a fairly normal dip to me.
>>
>>29499033
Because the government targeting one coin would be weird and if another privacy coin appeared they would have to make a new law.

That said XMR is the only real privacy coin so this is really just monero regulation.
>>
>>29500379
Which wallet do you recommend for Monero? Castelo’s still in dev hell, it looks like.

>>29500382
It's only down -50% in 7 days. But I'll take +5..
>>
>>29500583
Lots of new fags that bought BTC at the top losing their shit.
>>
>>29500698
Zcash and dash are shitcoins though. I think it would be bullish if they target XMR only and I suspect they deliberately try to delegitimize XMR by grouping it with shitcoins as a "privacy coin".
>>
>>29500740
Monero is not down 50% you demoralization nigger.
We are outperforming the market right now and the btc ratio is gaining. These are positive signs.
>>
>>29500710
I'm a big crusty GNUbeard so I use desktop and CLI wallets. I haven't picked a mobile or hardware wallet yet, but Ledger looks promising.

>>29500698
Also because explicitly naming an asset you're banning makes people panic buy it or hoard it. See also: AR-15s, 30 round magazines, energy drinks, Third Reich propaganda, precious metals.

Thanks. I'm holding my main Monero wallet in MyMonero currently, but I'm trying to figure out the least expensive ways to get exchanging for altcoins and other crypto, as well as both "fiat > crypto " and "crypto > fiat" out with the minimal amount of fees and necessity to transfer from wallet to wallet. I think Monero has great utility and value as an actual currency and its privacy features, but it is kind of frustrating that all the "big stuff" seems to happen with other coins like ETH, BTC on one end or the "random DeFi bullshit that costs a fuckload of ETH Gas" on the other. Likewise, I'm also trying to decide if I should essentially mine Monero (on like only a couple of GPUs and CPUs part time) or mine the most profitable things (I hear it tends to be ETH) and then just exchange for Monero as needbe etc.

Also, anyone want to weigh in on the dip currently and how long it will be before it goes back up above $250 again? I really should have set up some sort of "sell" option at that point but I'm not sure the best way to do that and if I should sell into another crypto or fiat.

>>29500710
Use the CLI if you like terminals, and the GUI otherwise.

Maybe I’m just overly paranoid about hot wallets; do you keep them in an encrypted partition or something? I’m worried about just having my keys sitting on my hard drive.
>>
>>29499339
All I know is I’ve heard good things about cake wallet
>>
>>29501015
My strategy right now is mining Monero on CPUs and Ethereum on GPUs since that's maximum profit for my hardware types.

>>29501201
Anything short of a government goon squad with automatic rifles is not going to set one foot inside my house without my consent. At that point rubber hose cryptography is the weak point, not what algorithm I use on my hard drives.
>>
>>29501015
Similar question, are we still on a downward trend? Looking to buy some more and hoping I can get it under 200
>>
>>29501015

I should mention I transferred a small amount of my profits to Edge as a "hot wallet" and used its in-wallet exchange setup, but I'm not sure if its worthwhile or not - the fees or rates on exchange and on fiat buy/sell options etc. Its nice to have it all there on an open source wallet however.

I did something monumentally stupid though not realizing that the big name stablecoins were fucking ERC20 tokens so I shifted some of those profits (ie I took some change I had in Monero worth about $150 at the time and moved it into Edge, then swapped it in app to Doge at 3c and got it out around 7c on the bounce so I had like $300-ish.) Stupidly decided to hold before Doge went down again into Tether the largest marketcap stablecoin, where now it sits in Edge because I don't know the amount of ETH necessary to get it out etc). I'm wondering if using Edge's functions for this stuff is better or worse than using a separate wallet and something like Bisq or other exchanges etc.

you right. It's only down -29.1%.

I'm still fucking long XMR because I have nothing else to go to.

If just Monero is banned, probably a tumble but not a full out collapse since people could still anonymously swap BTC for it and it would stll be useful for most use cases.

If ALL crypto is banned, everyone gets hit really hard, Monero weathers the hit much better than everyone else.
>>
>>29502601
Yeah, i feel like as a community we should take steps guaranteeing at least monero stays safe from any sort of regulation. Promoting decentralized wallet, making sure the currency remains de centralized that type of stuuf.

I know some people might freak out with this comment but if you're trading consistently you're better having liquidity readily available directly on exchanges. Use wallets to store for the long term or if you intend to use in day to day life instead of trading.
