What is Monero?

Monero is an open-source cryptocurrency that emphasizes privacy, anonymity, and decentralization. Where other cryptocurrencies use a public ledger, Monero uses an obfuscated public ledger. Here, anyone can send transactions, but outside observers can’t see the sender, recipient, or the amount involved. It uses a Proof of Work mining algorithm to create coins and award miners for validating the transactions.

The talk about Monero started when a Bitcointalk forum user forked the Bytecoin repository and named it BitMonero. However, after it was poorly received, Johnny Mnemonic and several other developers took over the project and changed the name to Monero.

Monero Payment Benefits:

  • Maximum privacy
    You can accept Monero payments to benefit from untraceable transactions ensuring complete anonymity
  • Speed and scalability
    Monero users do not have to wait more than a couple of minutes for the transactions to be complete
  • Quality development
