The Monero use case most people are familiar with is buying drugs on the Darknet. Monero is used very successfully for that purpose and preferred by those engaging in illicit activity, but it has value to anyone who values financial privacy or wants to shield their transactions from interference by third parties.Men in hostile divorces, those facing asset seizure due to civil litigation or the tax-man, those in countries whose policies are leading to hyperinflation, and people who object to their tax dollars being spent unethically could all use Monero as a solution to their problems.

According to the prospective DEA contract, Coinbase's software will provide "identity attribution" for crypto addresses both domestically and internationally."https://blog.chainalysis.com/reports/introducing-chainalysis-investigation-compliance-support-dash-zcash>"Dash and Zcash allow users to conduct transactions with greater privacy, but that doesn’t mean they provide total anonymity. The two cryptocurrencies’ privacy features — both in how they’re built as well as how they’re used in the real world — leave room for investigators and compliance professionals to investigate suspicious or illicit activity and maintain compliance. With Chainalysis product’s support, cryptocurrency businesses are now able to incorporate Dash and Zcash into their compliance programmes."
Is monero considered a shitcoin?

The watchdogs discussed FedAccounts, or cryptographic wallets held by the Federal Reserve, for commercial banking services.

>>19792879Monero is the only legitimate crypto used as currency outside of Bitcoin.
Is monero only private if you use a VPN?
>>19792879By some people, sure. But so is every cryptocurrency.Monero has been around since April, 2014. It's entirely open source, it has a core team of 30 developers and over 500 people have contributed code to the project. It has one of the most dedicated communities in crypto, and is utilized more widely for transactions on the DNM than any coin but BTC. By my standards, that places it far above the flash-in-the-pan projects that I would label as shitcoins.
>>19792704I made 3% returns on $10,000 US off this price movement today. Feeling comfy.
>>19792938No. It’s privacy is built into the base layer.
>>19792938No! Monero has privacy built into its mechanics- it's the root priority of the dev team. However, as a privacy focused community, we highly recommend that you do everything you can- including using a vpn -to ensure your privacy.

A few solid days of transactions after the recent drop. Currently we are hugging 12k for the day.
The Rebel's coin
I'm comfy lads.
Yes we all in this togetherWe’re are early bro’sFomoooooI am millionaire** .... I mean we are all going to be millionaires Pajeet freeWe’re rebels bro government Afraid of mmuh shitcoinGlowies are gonna miss out
>>19794749Why do you specifically post this troll in monero threads instead of the dozens of shitcoin threads on the front page. Why are you not posting it in uniswap scam threads or ghost threads? Why target monero, arguably the only crypto community on here that stresses not being a moonboy?Gee I wonder why.
>>19794822Bro what are you up to . You only troll MoneroWe’re not moon boysMuh utilityMuh privacyObviously a whale lowering prices169 iqWarning this is a scamWarning this is a scamWarning this is a scamWarning this is a scam
>>19794896https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/monero-transactions.htmlIf this is a scam, why is it showing long term growth through rising txs? Let me guess, instead of answering you’ll just post some onions spam to try to fud this thread.
This pictures says it allDead bag holders Good luck in crypto limbo
>>19794952Why are you ignoring my question about rising transactions?
>>19794952Opinions are like assholes
>>19792911Monero Is only legitimate crypto coin besides bitcoin- monero bag holder12k transactions moooniiingRebel coin bro’sWe’re just getting started Why you no answer my question about transactions going downBeen around since 2014 bro’s were so early fomoooooo 12k transactions mooooning bro’s 7yr old coin lol haha haha

>>19795118No glowies allowed in muh post about muh coin mug privacy
>>19795094Proving my point.
>>19795094at least the fud pic is funny
>>19794749>>19794896>>19795151Oooh boy, it's my favorite faggot, Elmer FUD.How's being friendless been treating you, Elmer? Care to have a conversation today, or will you just continue with the strawmanning?
For the filthy speculators among us, what's the upside potential on this in 2020? In comparison to the other blue chips.
>>19796279The upside is that we are in the accumulation phase. So despite Monero having a growing market share on the dark net — and frankly being about 18 months away from being the coin of choice on there — Monero is still valued at 0.007 BTC. We think the long term growth will eventually lead us to other use cases, of which there are dozens when it comes to digital cash.This is a long term hold or a crypto to use. It’s not a pump and dump.
>>19796341Big facts! The dev team specifically discourages the kind of holder mentality fairly critiqued here: >>19794952Most monero enthusiasts (myself included) think that the value will eventually increase drastically, and so have some savings in XMR. But most members of the community try to use XMR whenever they can, to promote that their business associates do the same. It's how I've been paying for my haircuts lately! That attitude (coupled with darknet use, of course) is why Monero tx is steadily growing in the midst of this bear/crab market.
Perhaps some speculators are hesitant to adopt XMR because the daily transaction chart cannot be translated to a raw $USD value per transaction due to the inherent obfuscation of amounts. Monero’s greatest strength is a deterrent.
>>19794749>>19794896This is probably the 0xMonero spam poster.. I haven't seen him in any XMR threads since they Exit scammed on all the bagholders.. He's probably mad he bought a cheap imitation instead of the authentic product.. There's only one Monero frens, Don't buy cheap imitations or you will end up getting dumped on
>>19797548I'm willing to take that trade! Speculators are less valuable than actual users.
>>19792704>https://kycnot.me/This link is missing Phemex anon, they require zero KYC despite being a centralized exchange that accepts debit/credit cards lol
>>19797548>>19797991XMR is pretty much guaranteed to flip BTC on the darknet. When the CIA/DEA/FBI start tracking Bitcoin using Coinbase analytics later this year / next year Monero is next in line to inherit that market
>>19797991Based perspective. Speculation is the only reason BTC is able to moon. “Pricing in” is possible with BTC - not so with XMR. There’s a certain level of forethought and vision required to see that XMR’s rise in value will happen the same way that falling asleep does - slowly and then all at once!

>>19797548That's a great point. >>19798044when we eventually do take over the dark net, it'll be great being able to point to it and say "see, this international underground economy actually USES Monero. this isn't a fucking pyramid scheme. people are actually buying a cryptocurrency to use it." And from there the real life use cases will only evolve.that eventual news article from a major newspaper reporting on the new dark net cryptocurrency is gonna be lit.
Best place to buy monero and keep the cryptojews out of my stash?
$9k within the next 3 years
>>19792844>could all use Monero as a solution to their problems.they could, but let's be honest probably never will because the team don't care about marketing its ease of use nor making it actually easy to use to the masses. Instead of these use cases it's sitting on a shelf collecting dust while they hope that maybe magically people start using it.
>>19799891I've been on the ground in Caracas Venezeula and I can tell you Crypto is mainstream there and somewhat normalised the same way as Banking is in the US & Europe.. I've met a lot of people Venezuela who keep their wealth in XMR
>>19799891The team care less about marketing than about the quality of the product. Those of us who don't code take the responsibly of marketing upon ourselves. Hence: this thread.
Wouldn't buying it on an exchange remove your anonymity? Even with a vpn?
So if the plural of minero is moneroj, is it pronounced “moner-oy”?
>>19800415No, because monero is currency, which is plural already.
After being screwed over so many times in crypto, Monero is so fucking comfy. I’ll never stray again.
>>19799948that's interesting anon. what were you doing in Caracas. >>19800380Once you buy off of an exchange and send to a personal wallet, the Monero can no longer be tracked. All the information that would be known is that you sent monero off of an exchange to an address. But that's it. They don't know where you sent your Monero, and they have no idea what the Monero is used for. It's basically digital cash. >>19800415I honestly didn't even know that lol. I think Monero sounds find plural.
>>19800380This anon is correct >>19800744If you don't want anybody to know you bought XMR in the first place, that would depend on your exchange, your method of putting money on the exchange, and your general OPSEC.
"I think that the only effective defense against the coming surveillance dystopia is one where you take steps yourself to safeguard your privacy, because there's no incentive for self-restraint by the people that have the capacity to intercept everything. A historical analogy could be how people learned that they should wash their hands. That required the germ theory of disease to be established and then popularized, and for paranoia to be instilled about the spread of disease via invisible stuff on your hands that you can't see, just as you can't see mass interception. Once there was enough understanding, soap manufacturers produced products that people consumed to relieve their fear. It's necessary to instill fear in people so they understand the problem before they will create enough demand to solve the problem." -Julian Assange
