The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Monero
Monero secures its users’ financial privacy by making every user anonymous by default. To conceal the identity of the sender, recipient, and amount transferred in a transaction, Monero uses advanced privacy technologies such as ring signatures, stealth addresses, and Ring Confidential Transactions (RingCT).

VPS, Cloud Services, and Hosting Providers that accept Monero (XMR)
cross-posted from: > A comprehensive list of VPS and cloud-service/hosting providers that are either: > - (a) Tor-friendly ***or*** > - (b) accept Monero (XMR) and are privacy-driven

cross-posted from: Atomic swaps between BTC and XMR have been one of the most discussed and anticipated developments in the field for quite some time. While Farcaster is still working on the implementation of their protocol, the COMIT team has already delivered an MVP. Trustless cross-chain swaps are becoming a tangible reality. However, for atomic swaps to gain widespread and adopted, the user experience needs to be drastically improved. People shouldn't have to manually type commands into a terminal or understand the protocol at a technical level to participate. That's the problem this project aims to solve. *Make atomic swaps accessible to all!*

cross-posted from: The European Union could ban banks and crypto providers from dealing in privacy-enhancing coins such as zcash, monero and dash under a leaked draft of a money laundering bill obtained by CoinDesk. The plans from Czech officials, who are chairing talks among EU governments on the proposed law, would represent the latest nail in the coffin for anonymous means of payment following tough new rules agreed over the summer. “Credit institutions, financial institutions and crypto-asset service providers shall be prohibited from keeping …anonymity-enhancing coins,” said a legislative draft seen by CoinDesk, dated Nov. 9, which has been circulated to the bloc's other 26 member states for comment.

    Monero (XMR) is a decentralized cryptocurrency. It uses a public distributed ledger with privacy-enhancing technologies that obfuscate transactions to achieve anonymity and fungibility. Observers cannot decipher addresses trading monero, transaction amounts, address balances, or transaction histories.

    The protocol is open source and based on CryptoNote, a concept described in a 2013 white paper authored by Nicolas van Saberhagen. The cryptography community used this concept to design Monero, and deployed its mainnet in 2014. Monero uses ring signatures, zero-knowledge proofs, “stealth addresses”, and IP address–obscuring methods to obfuscate transaction details. These features are baked into the protocol, though users can optionally share view keys for third-party auditing. Transactions are validated through a miner network running RandomX, a proof-of-work algorithm. The algorithm issues new coins to miners, and was designed to be resistant to application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) mining.

    Monero has the third-largest developer community among cryptocurrencies, behind Bitcoin and Ethereum. Its privacy features have attracted cypherpunks and users desiring privacy measures not provided in other cryptocurrencies
