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.

Hey bros, just wondering something.

I run a business. It's just me. The business pays 100% of all income to my salary so the business pays no tax, i only pay income tax.

I'm wondering if i can buy XMR using the business income instead of paying myself, then i just cash out a small amount whenever i need to pay mortgage and what not. That'd reduce my income tax massively, buy not sure how i could say the XMR is a business expense. Unless i setup lile a fake hosting website and claim I'm paying hosting.

If you are receiving money, you are gonna have a hard time avoiding income tax unless it's cash. And you would also have a very hard time claiming XMR is a business expense, and if you did, you'd be required to keep detailed logs of everything.

If you wanted to *evade* taxes, which is the illegal cousin of avoiding taxes, then you could just straight up accept XMR as payment rather than USD and simply not record it. Of course, you would do this at your own risk. And depending on your business, this might be impossible (like if you sell candles to boomers, they're not gonna know what XMR is.)

>Explain the privacy features to me like the brainlet I am, please

>How is Monero’s privacy different from other coins?

Monero uses three different privacy technologies: ring signatures, ring confidential transactions (ringCT), and stealth addresses. These hide the sender, amount, and receiver in the transaction, respectively. All transactions on the network are private by mandate; there is no way to accidentally send a transparent transaction. This feature is exclusive to Monero. You do not need to trust anyone else with your privacy.

>How is Monero different from Bitcoin?

Monero is not based on Bitcoin. It is based on the CryptoNote protocol. Bitcoin is a completely transparent system, where people can see exactly how much money is being sent from one user to another. Monero hides this information to protect user privacy in all transactions. It also has a dynamic block size and dynamic fees, an ASIC-resistant proof of work (RandomX), and a Tail Emission, among several other changes.


>What is fungibility, and why is it important?

Fungibility is a simple property of money such that there are no differences between two amounts of the same value. If two people exchanged a 10 and two 5’s, then no one would lose out. However, let’s suppose that everyone knows the 10 was previously used in a ransomware attack. Is the other person still going to make the trade? Probably not, even if the person with the 10 has no connection with the ransomware. This is a problem, since the receiver of money needs to constantly check the money they are receiving to not end up with tainted coins. Monero is fungible, which means people do not need to go through this effort.

>Brainlet explanation
You use money on an exchange to buy Monero. Then you send Monero to a private wallet. Monero can't be seen by anyone so it's completely private. You can buy drugs with it because it is so private.

>Midwit explanation
Monero uses an encrypted ledger so all data on the blockchain is encrypted and only you have the key to decrypt your personal address, amount and transactions. You can't see what anyone else did except yourself though.

>High IQ explanation
If you send a transaction with Monero. You generate a fake one-time address for whomever you send it to. Then your output gets mixed with 10 other fake addresses so it can't be traced. The amount that is transmitted is completely hidden but calculated by miners to be correct even though they don't know the actual amount contained within. They use PhD level mathematics to figure out how to still check to see if the transactions are legit and not forged while not revealing the actual transaction amounts.

Due to privacy reasons Monero needs to do 10 confirmations. This means it will need to be recorded on the blockchain and checked multiple times before being spendable again. This is so the government can't do some spooky shit to your funds.

However this means that it will take at least 2 minutes before the payment is received and another 4-8 minutes for them to confirm payment. Paying for a pizza might be awkward if you have to wait 6-10 minutes for the payment to go through although it beats Bitcoin's hour long transaction time.

Bulletproof+ that will be implemented late 2021 will reduce waiting time to around 1-4 minutes in total. But that still isn't ideal.

Monero is best used for online purchases, illegal purchases or large payments.

It's a nifty cryptografic concept called "range proof". The amount is encrypted, but you can still do (simple) calculations with the amount. In particular the code checks that all inputs are positive values and that the sum of all inputs and outputs is zero.

I don't really know what you mean with this. Do you mean how do you know if the price transacted is accurate?
If so then Monero actually invented some new math to do so. Turns out using math you can do some calculations that proves the transaction is accurate and the amount transacted is the same without knowing the actual amounts involved. I can't go into details about it because there have been scientific papers published about it. But it's called "RingCT" if you want to read more about it.

All you need to know is that it really works.

your information is incorrect. Bulletproof+ has no impact on block time. Bulletproof+ has impacts on verification speed when syncing a node, as well as the size of the blocks.
With monero, if you can quite reasonable see a zero conf payment and accept it, and with Monero these are pretty much instant. If you want to wait for a few confirmations, then you can wait 2-6 minutes to get a couple, although this is unnecessary.

Monero does not have the "replace by fee" feature of bitcoin. Therefor transactions can not (easily) be removed from the mempool. In practice true zero-confirmation transactions are possible, it only takes a few seconds for the transaction to get into the mempool.

Dynamic block size. Basically if there are enough transactions occuring the block size can go up. However when the block size goes up the fees goes up as well precisely to combat the situation you're describing.

If the transactions stay that large for a certain amount of time (months) then the blockchain adapts to the new block size and normalizes fees for it so that in the long term the blockchain can scale up to more adoption while still preventing spam attacks by raising fees for short term enlargement of block sizes.

It is but Monero's blocks will grow if there is an increase in block size. I don't have the exact formula memorized, but it something like the median of the last 100 blocks rising by +10%.
For a sustained Big Bang Attack to occur (this is what you are talking about) it would cost tens of millions. I believe it would be roughly similar in cost to a 51% attack.
Dynamic block size hasn't even been seen yet for Monero, so we are a ways off from seeing something like this. Big Bang Attacks have been talked about frequently in developer meetings, and improvements to the dynamic block size were included in a hard fork a couple years ago.

>I thought it's more like bitcoins "fee marketplace" where the highest fee gets priority to be included in the block.
Monero has no fee marketplace. The fees are determined by the blocksize which is dynamic. Blockchain has a static blocksize of 1MB and thus you have to compete in fee to be included in a block.

Monero has dynamic blocks and a miner automatically creates a larger block if there are more transaction requests. However the transaction fee for the block goes up exponentially with the block size to prevent spamming.

If the block size stays that large because there is a legitimate usage proven by months of those block sizes being the standard the blockchain automatically reduces transaction fees again so that it scales up.

>>30139460
Not really "reject". The transaction fee is fixed and determined by the blockchain. If a bigger block gets created then the transaction fee goes up. If you spam lots of transactions then you would need bigger and bigger blocks and thus exponentially higher and higher fees until the spammer can't afford to spam transactions anymore.

The monero team basically had to weigh pros and cons and decided to go with a dynamic system instead so that in the short term it can dodge tx spamming and in the long term it can grow the amount of tx/second the blockchain supports.

It's a balancing act but I think Monero devs made the right choice here.

Xmrig and MoneroOcean have me tearing my hair out.

I tried bumping the port up to 10512, and it worked for a bit, and now it's saying shares are rejected again.

I don't understand, my hashrate is between 2k-4k so I would think the default 10128 port would work (and sometimes it does), but it randomly does this to me on a daily basis.

I know about the dynamic block size. But transactions in the mempool != transaction in next block. This attack is about spamming the mempool, not the blockchain.
Each miner can decide which and how many transactions to include. Large blocks cost a block reward penelty (which is paid out to a later mined block), so miners will only include the most valuable transaction (ie. with most fees for them).

>>30139984
>It is

no it has something to do with the difficulty. I keep changing the port to a higher and higher difficulty because the errors indicate it's rejected my shares because they're too low difficulty. Doesn't make sense though because I only get like 4k H/s tops so the default port should work.

I'm not talking about just XMR, I mean even the other faux privacy coins like ZEC.

There is no competition, Bitcoin will NEVER be able to do what Monero can, even Andreas admits as much:

>Bitcoin Will Never Be Truly Private Says Andreas Antonopoulos

In a livestream Q&A on Antonopoulos’ YouTube channel on July 7, he said Bitcoin (BTC) was unlikely to ever implement privacy features similar to those used by Monero (XMR).

Antonopoulos said creating such features on a cryptocurrency like BTC “would create an enormous amount of controversy.” In addition, he said the structure of Bitcoin simply doesn’t allow ring signatures and stealth addresses.

“I think what we’re going to see soon is Schnorr, Taproot, and Tapscript, which open the door to a lot of improvements,” Antonopoulos said, “But they still do not involve zero-knowledge proofs or the types of ring signatures and stealth addresses that are done in Monero. Bitcoin is not a privacy coin.”

Bitcoin can be better thought of as pseudonymous rather than fully anonymous, as many transactions on the BTC blockchain can still be traced even with these privacy improvements.

Thanks for the link. In particular the following qoute is interesting:
>Another change is that the fee are now set based upon the long term median block weight. this means there is no fee reduction during a short term burst. This both allows the use of a higher penalty for a given fee level to accommodate the short term increase while at the same time providing no fee relief to a spammer attempting to maintain a bloated block weight.
In interpret as: fees stay the same short term, normal fees at the high transaction value is enough to fend of attackers

>totally different codebase
>tail emission: monero won't need a fee market to develop for miners to keep being incentivized
>dynamic blocksize: monero can scal up when usage grows, so no blocksize-wars/fork
>default privacy: this makes monero fungible, which is a very important characteristic of sound money. >Daniel Kim also makes a great case on why it's the squeaky clean people that need this because they are the ones getting harmed from tainted Bitcoin...
>RandomX mining algorithm which is ASIC-resistant and thus makes sure there's no mining centralisation in hardware
>Certainly I'm forgetting other stuff. But Bitcoin getting delisted in favor for Monero in the places where Bitcoin really got started as money is testament to the fact that monero actually does what it says it does, being private digital cash.

up to you mang
going it alone you will probably not see any returns, but if you get really lucky and solve a block you will get the full reward for the block, which as of now i believe is 1.1 or so XMR

With a lower hashrate like that Id recc joining a pool. moneroocean.stream is pretty small and good. minexmr is good too but it makes up about a third of the hashrate, which isnt terrible but i would encourage joining a smaller pool for the sake of the health of the coin

If you optomize your rig you can probably get 2.4 kh/s.
only use half your cores and enable huge pages, but tinker around and see what works best.

search get monero on the web. That is the official source of xmrig and has good links to the best pools.

First of all, I applaud you for not falling into the consumerism trap. That's extremely based. But I have to say, it might be worth an upgrade at this point. You can get a computer that would be able to run modern programs and be much faster in general for $100-200, no exaggeration. I totally understand that you don't need to have the latest and the greatest, I'm the same way. But at this point you could seriously get a modest desktop for $100 that would be at the very least capable of running Windows 10 (which you can get for free) and modern programs like a crypto wallet.

1. Regulatory pressure and negative connotation (e.g. Australia has banned privacy coins from their exchanges and KYC/AML regulations in EU and US put monero/zcash/dash in higher risks)

2. Not listed on big U.S. markets like Coinbase so it is hard to reach for americans which has higher purchasing power in crypto markets from manifacturers (China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Iran)

3. Incentive to mine isn't efficient even for higher end CPU's (AMD Threadripper 3990x priced at $3800 and gives you like 64000 H/s and consumes 600 W which equals to $1500 return or roughly 9.50 XMR per year and it is decreasing until May 2022 in which tail emission kicks in)

4.Used as a real currency than a speculative asset so many people make transactions and sell it not holding like bitcoin holders which doesn't have a use case

5. One of the most shorted coins in the market and it gives nice return from shorting

6. I'm not really sure about this but to my knowledge supply isn't auditable

7. Last month some group tried a 51% attack on monero network and has failed but it reached like 48 % of the hashrate of network 2miners.com IIRC

But nowadays there is a demand from both dark markets and investment firms (grayscale) so it's either crabbing or going up in value. I think it will see like $550-$750 maybe more. I wish it would see $2000 or more until then it is not profitable to mine with a average CPU. Don't forget that almost all bitcoin maxis agree that monero has a use case and some of them even advocate monero (Michael Saylor, Andreas Antonopoulos, Peter McCormack, Nick Szabo) and don't get me started on fungibility part IYKYK

>I'm not really sure about this but to my knowledge supply isn't auditable

You can verify the integrity of the supply by:

>Summing up all the coinbase outputs, which are unmasked (i.e. in the clear). Pic related.
>Verifying the underlying cryptography (mathematics) of the confidential amounts implementation.
>Verifying the correctness of the implementation in the code.

Those essentially guarantee that the supply has not been maliciously inflated (i.e. unintended inflation has occurred). Note that a similar procedure has to be followed for transparent chains. Furthermore, a hypothetical inflation bug can go unnoticed even on a transparent chain.

- news mostly about attacks, patches and delistings

- perceived as archaic and static compared to newer smart, agile and well-connected projects

- might get banned and then difficult to trade with no liquidity

- wallets not fool-proof, users of hardware wallets show up daily because they can't see their coins

- no ubiquitous ways to buy directly with fiat

- missing on important exchanges

- (relatively) high barrier of entry for 2021 batch of buyers and people unfamiliar with crypto

- not natively compatible with ETH ecosystem

- no equivalent to easy browser plugins (e.g. Metamask)

- Anti-Virus stops Monero wallet installations

- no major DeFi applications, locked-out of the system

- few ways to earn money & rewards

- rewards only people with beefy mining CPUs

- no staking

- no official support

- no supply deflation by incentivizing to lock-up XMR

- supply inflates forever

- hodlers get nothing and continuously pay for inflation

- network effects haven't reached critical mass

- indirect governance is difficult and incentivizes freeloading

- little incentive to build on top of XMR

- other projects have greater resources

- might get tracked in the future

- privacy might get trivialized and becomes a worthless commodity

- many other projects add "good enough" privacy leaving XMR only attractive for marginal groups

- some DeFi protocol might offer seamless privacy and stability in DeFi ecosystem without having to jump through as many hoops as one has to do with XMR

- stigmatic reputation

- big target for the government while other coins can fly under the radar

- less price action means less attention

- age of coins with just one feature + chain might be over

- perpetual downtrend against BTC discourages hodling

- possibly giga-whales perpetually dumping

- uncertainty about supply bugs

- inefficiency in initial mining exploited

- during attacks simple users had a bad user experience and nothing worked

On the other hand from the XMR Chad bull book :

- class-leading privacy coin

- real world adoption

- great community

- long history

- capable dev teams

- very decentralized

- no company/foundation

- might replace BTC in most use cases

- potential to become the class-leading currency coin

- Atomic swaps will enable XMR to tap into other coin universes with minimal metadata leaks and very low friction

- new buyers and speculators might not be fully aware of flaws in BTC and DeFi and in the future might migrate to XMR

- price action not fully exploited this cycle

- organic price action

- upside from informal sector onboarding is hundreds or thousands of X

- upside potential from more exchange listings

- wrapped versions enable DeFi usage, not yet fully exploited

- little known institutional involvement creates upside potential

- Grayscale Monero Trust will enable easy access for many investors

- most battle-proven privacy coin

- trusted and used by black hats

- honorable use cases improve reputation

- low inflation and no gaming of the explicit supply with locking incentives etc.

- privacy features are working

- separation from other ecosystems keeps XMR running if they go downhill

- coin economics provide long term stability

- high demand for privacy once governments try to enforce regulation and taxes

- demonstrated ability to fend off attacks

- demonstrated ability to keep network up-to-date with latest privacy features

This was the worst part. I know the guy is desperate and probably committed seppuku already, but holy... How can you be this naive with such a huge amount of money. It really makes me think that cryptocurrencies are just a art performance orchestrated by Satoshi to show how people react with it.

like the other anon said, you are going to have to start it with a flag. The correct phrasing is --restore-deterministic-wallet.

Possible....BTC might crash again but XMR might have truly decoupled by now.

running monero-wallet-cli --restore-from-seed seems to just make a new wallet with new seed phrases.

yeah yeah, but aside from an excuse to swing your epeen around what can you do on cli that I can't on gui.

I can work with a cli if I have to. I run headless VMs so I don't have to deal with wasted resources on GUI. But with something like a wallet on my personal PC, who gives a shit? Why not make it easy?

It generated a different seed phrase the first time so I wasnt sure as it gave a different wallet address.....
