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.

Fell for the GME "squeeze" that turned out to be a P&D in the end, lost the fiat equivalent of 40% of my xmr stack. Not the end of the world, but dang, this stings. Sorry for ot, just needed to vent.

The 2 XMR I bought @ 104€ made 20% gains in the meantime, I should have put it there instead of chaising after the hype.

On the upside I've discovered how crooked the "normal" financial system is and am more bullish on monero than ever.

>That's what you get for gambling
yeah, I know. Overall I'm not too mad at myself, just that I bought more at 310€ when I should have taken my initial out.
Another mistake I made was believing in the squeeze and standing longer than I should because I really wanted to stick it up to wallstreet. Also I should have read this (counterfeitingstock.com/CS2.0/CounterfeitingStock.html) before the hype started, I would have seen through it much clearer.
Lastly, I know now that my gamble amount threshold is at about 10% total and 7.5% loss (relative to net worth)
Again, no huge losses (<10% of my net worth), not gonna investing into $rope or anything, but definitly a pricy lesson.

how is that dabbing on globalist homos?
if anything, using a globalist language like that is just going to help their cause, not hurt them.
Should have used some cool ancient shit like Assyrian or Latin. And at the very fuckin least used a ticker that vaguely resembles the name.
"XMR"? [X]M(one)R(o)? what the fuck.
I can hate all day but that won't stop me from investing though.

>> No.27733714

The ticker is XMR because the devs wanted to comply with ISO 4217, which mandates that cryptocurrency tickers begin with an 'X' because they're not tied to any country. It's the same reason Bitcoin is sometimes (but rarely) called XBT. I haven't seen any specific reasoning for why other than that they wanted to remove a potential obstacle to adoption.

>> No.27733720

>if anything, using a globalist language like that is just going to help their cause, not hurt them.
globalists want centralized control, taking their meme language and making it represent the polar opposite of that is why its dabbing on globalist homos. i don't see how that helps them in any capacity. that's how i see it, anyway. no idea if that was their intent obviously.

>> No.27734751

It's probably along the lines that no one country controls the currency, like no one country controls Esperanto.
Esperanto is just a shitty language. It was invented by a fucking eye doctor. Has absolutely no substance, no linguistic intricacies, and was shilled constantly for being the official second-language of the world because OMG ENGLISH IS SO PROBLEMATIC.
It's brooklyn champagne socialist "lets all hold hands and stop fighting" bullshit. If it were actually adopted mainstream across the world, beautiful languages that have developed organically would be eradicated. Complain about English all you want but at least it gave us Shakespeare and Melville. Name one work in Esperanto that's in the same league.

because 1984/brave new world, unironically. if you dumb the language down its easier to control how people think. it could just be because the devs believed it to be a neutral language, but i'm at least suspicious they're woke on the globalist problem and are poking fun at them. the only problem w/ english imo is that it's really awkward to attribute a long list of causes to something, and leads people to think in slightly simplistic ways about things of attributing only one cause to an event. normies end up believing that this one cause is the only cause, where other ppl obviously still understand its more nuanced and can infer as much, but this gets lost in translation to the normies. english being """problematic""" is a great way to keep out outsiders and identify them on the internet. if you dumb the language down you strip away these qualities. to circle back, you hate it because its a prole language, and that's probably on purpose to some degree.

>and their tech is better than XMR
no it's not. trusted set up negates that.
and this is ignoring all the other things that make zcash fucking terrible.
The attack was mitigated but it took like a month of back and forth updates (monero devs would update something and then the attack would target another weakness). Eventually it stopped and then the proposal happened.
yeah it's kind of weird but this is crypto, so weird things like this are sort of normal.

i always get a really good feeling about xmr, pretty sure i had a dream where i sold my btc and put it all into xmr so don't know if that was a sign and i should just take the risk and trust my instinct.

>> No.27740504

Remember that bitcoin's first real use case was as a darknet market currency.
Now that the DNMs have started to replace it with XMR, it's only a matter of time before normies get over the "but criminals use it!" hump. They've done it before; that's why I'm bullish on XMR, and bearish on BTC (in the long run).
