I mean that's a broad topic to discuss: Yesterday: I had a job interview with a game company, they told me to install a game. I tried installing it, it turned out to be malware. Years ago: "I kept my private keys for my XMR wallet on an encrypted thumb drive how did I lose all my monero?" "Did you copy and paste them somewhere?" "Yeah, but it was the official wallet app." "Hate to break it to you buddy, but copying your private keys can allow malicious browser extensions or even just a tab for a malicious website can steal them." ____________________________________________ My own two cents: if I lost 4 or 5 figures in crypto, I would probably also like to know where I went wrong.

What's the catalyst for a Bitcoin fork to increase in price? What's the hype behind Litecoin? What new interesting things are being done with it that people are going to be excited about? For something to increase in price, there must be buyers driving a price trend. Why would they choose litecoin? Purely transactional currencies (Litecoin, XMR, BCH, Nano, etc) need some sort of hype cycle to drive growth - Look back at these, for Litecoin it was the 2017 run, XMR just rose with Bitcoin, BCH had the big block narrative and split in 2017, and Nano had the "next bitcoin" thing going for a while. But none of these have done well over time. There just isn't enough to drive the price up, at least in comparison to basically everything else in the market.

Mentions:#XMR#BCH

Never say never😎. You forget that BCH lost the ticker and had to fight off two bad actors. But since then it has done fantastic. I know most people here are excited about NgU, but the freedom to transact is something really exciting and BCH is doing it best imo. XMR and LTC trying too. BTC and ETH, which most people are excited about, do not interest me in the slightest, because they suck in this regard. They are what one would call: the establishment.

Hey there! I made an account in Glue Hub and took a little tour around the market watcher and watch listed a few coins.

#Monero Pro-Arguments Below is a Monero pro-argument written by roberthonker. > **Taken from /u\/awhodothey's submission from last round** > > Assume no consumers ever care about privacy. Assume everyone is totally fine with all of their finances and purchase records being 100% visible on the blockchain to anyone who EVER pays or receives crypto from them once. Or assume crypto never catches on enough for casual consumers to realize they don't want every company to know every detail of their life... Monero will still succeed. Monero's real world market adoption will still continue to grow. > > Assume Monero was banned by every country in the world. Monero is the only coin who's market cap would be projected to increase even if it was completely banned, because Monero is the preferred coin of the black market, and black market activities are, by definition, already banned by law. > > The market cap of the black market is the market cap of every commercial activity that governments physically cannot stop. Monero's usage, market cap and price are increasing as the black market very slowly adopts Monero- despite the fact that most exchanges have already delisted XMR. Monero is the only multi-billion dollar coin that is known to have no chance at being listed on some of the biggest exchanges. So why is it worth so much still? Because unlike every other crypto, Monero is actually used as an exchange currency in the real world. > > The global black market is currently estimated to be over $10 trillion/year- larger than the economy of every country in Europe. If the global black market were a country it would be the second or third largest economy in the world. > > https://www.forbes.com/sites/benzingainsights/2011/11/07/rise-of-the-shadow-economy-second-largest-economy-in-the-world/?sh=4198b6cf4a0e > > The anonymity of Monero is comparable to the anonymity of cash, but Monero is much cheaper and faster than cash transfers. Further, because Monero does not need to be physically transfered or stored, it is much safer and greatly reduces the risk of violence and theft to black market participants. > > But what if every single centralized exchange removed Monero? It's too late. All the necessary pieces are already on the board. Atomic swaps with bitcoin are live, and wallets are rushing to integrate decentralized, trustless BTC to XMR exchange. Secret Network already has a tokenized version of Monero (sXMR) on the testnet of Secret Swap (a private, decentralized exchange that anyone can use without KYC). Every major crypto will be convertible to Monero. And options like "localMonero" already exist for anyone who wants to convert cash or refillable debit cards directly to Monero. > > Monero is the leading privacy coin, and the only trustless privacy coin with a network effect and proven track record of real world use. It is privacy by default, and users have no risk of forgetting to enable privacy. The Monero network is highly decentralized and open source and does not require users to trust its creators. The community is active and passionately unified around the core objectives of creating a real decentralized currency that is private. The IRS's bounty for anyone who can crack Monero is a testament to years of proven success. > > Monero is *the* crypto currency of the black market. Monero has no competition in that market, and it leaves no room for another coin to prove itself. Worst case scenario, Monero is outlawed and rejected by all law abiding citizens of the world. Monero would eventually replace blackmarket currencies and make some black market practices, like money laundering and off shore banking, entirely unnecessary. > > There is no need for slow, extremely expensive off shore banking practices that carry privacy risks (like the Panama papers that leaked account holder's names) and security risks (like the government reforms that have lead to account confiscations). Monero is cheaper, faster, easier, safer, and more private. It makes off shore banking completely obsolete. > > The market cap of gold is about $11 trillion. Low end estimate of the offshore banking market cap is $20 trillion. At $222, the current market cap of Monero is about $4 billion. When Monero's market cap reaches 1% of the low estimate of the illegal global offshore banking market, that will make each Monero worth more than $11,000. > > https://www.forbes.com/sites/frederickallen/2012/07/23/super-rich-hide-21-trillion-offshore-study-says/?sh=191f47fa6ba6 > > Monero will inevitably become a major currency of the future. Probably nothing can stop that, so you may as well think about your privacy and choose to use it to protect your perfectly legal transactions too. Fortunately, Monero is designed to be a currency, not a store of value with a fixed supply that discourages spending. > > Black market adoption will put buy pressure on XMR, and that demand will slowly drive the price up. Monero may not be the fastest growing investment opportunity, but that's what makes it a better currency. I can't name an investment that would be lower risk, or name a better crypto currency. ***** Would you like to learn more?

Just seems kind of insignificant without knowing the volume and when the most popular coin changes so often. BTC was the highest in MAR + APR, then USDC was the highest in MAY, then XMR in JUN. Lacks too much context to really take anything away that we don't already know, which is that BTC is really popular in general and XMR/USDC is popular with payments.

>There are some people who are very bullish on BCH and call BTC trash but I have no clue why. Because BCH has much lower fees. BTC has become prohibitively expensive to be used as peer-to-peer electronic cash, hence the new narrative of it being a store of value instead (which never convinced me personally) or that everyone would start using Lightning and Layer 1 is just for large settlement like between "banks". So in terms of utility as a currency, without a doubt BCH > BTC. However, BCH has the problem that it's not alone. Litecoin (LTC) is very similar to BCH overall, and less known coins like Kaspa (KAS) or Nano (XNO) are even cheaper and faster. So in terms of usage as a payment method, BTC might be the worst, but BCH is also not the best. Finally, I think to be peer-to-peer electronic CASH, you also need to have privacy. Hence Monero (XMR) is indispensable in the crypto "ecosystem". I think if you could combine the tech of Kaspa and Monero somehow, that would be the ultimate electronic cash. Until then, people will just advertise their favourite alts (each with their pros and cons) or "invest" in BTC because it's the most well-known name and most people just care about crypto to make more (fiat) money and not about getting rid of the legacy, government-controlled banking system for payments.

#Monero Con-Arguments Below is a Monero con-argument written by mic_droo. > Monero is a privacy coin – the biggest and most well-known privacy coin, at that. Its main appeal is that, other than most other crypto currencies, it really is private and anonymous and it has a huge community that loves that about it. > > There are, in my opinion, two clusters of arguments that can be made against Monero: those that generally disagree with Monero in general and think it’s dangerous, and those that generally think what Monero is doing is good, but that it doesn’t do a great job at it. > > Let’s start with the first one: the argument could be made that Monero is dangerous. As I’ve laid out in my [Privacy Con-post](https://np.reddit.com/r/CointestOfficial/comments/r6syvm/general_concepts_round_privacy_conarguments/hxqgi5x/) in the last round, complete privacy enables illegal activities – one the one hand if you, for example, kidnap someone, asking for Monero is a great choice. But elites can also engage in corruption more easily using a coin like that. It can also be used (and let’s be honest, that is happening) to avoid paying taxes – which in my opinion is a huge problem as 1) this leads to governments receiving less tax money (**yes**, I think taxes are a necessary and good thing) and 2) to them being more anti-crypto. If we want crypto in general to be more accepted, Monero isn’t doing anyone a favour, some [countries are cracking down on exchanges that offer privacy coins](https://www.techtarget.com/searchsecurity/news/252512394/Monero-and-the-complicated-world-of-privacy-coins) specifically, which might also lead to less and less exchanges offering XMR when crypto gets regulated more. > > Okay, so far so good, but even if you think complete privacy is exclusively good, Monero has a few downsides. Firstly, [it might not be as untraceable as it seems](https://www.wired.com/story/monero-privacy/) – in the past there have been a few problems that might have made you identifiable, especially if you weren’t cautious enough. Even though developers have fixed past loopholes, that doesn’t mean Monero will stay untraceable forever. The IRS [famously isn’t a fan and has a bounty on cracking Monero](https://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2020/09/14/irs-will-pay-up-to-625000-if-you-can-crack-monero-other-privacy-coins/?sh=3749d97585cc), and it’s naïve to assume it is *impossible* to do so. If people feel to secure now, they might be in trouble once the code is cracked. Secondly, it’s slow – with one transaction [taking about half an hour to be completed](https://www.monero.how/how-long-do-monero-transactions-take), which makes it unusable or at least very annoying for many applications. Thirdly, it’s a proof of work coin which, without going into too much detail (but see my [PoW con post](https://np.reddit.com/r/CointestOfficial/comments/r6vtbn/general_concepts_round_pow_conarguments_december/hyr768o/) is an inefficient system that is awful for the environment. Finally, Monero mining [is pretty centralized](https://bitcoinist.com/does-monero-have-a-serious-centralized-mining-problem/) making it a potential target of a 51% attack. ***** Would you like to learn more?

tldr; In June, Monero (XMR) surpassed Bitcoin (BTC) in payment volume for the first time on the CoinCards gift card payment platform, achieving a 34.4% share compared to BTC's 25.96%. This shift in user preference towards Monero, known for its privacy features, reflects a broader trend observed in both darknet and Clearnet markets. Despite Bitcoin validating more transactions overall, Monero processes more transactions relative to its market value, indicating a growing popularity for payments. This increase in demand for XMR could potentially impact its price, which has seen a significant recovery since Binance's delisting. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

***"No transparency.*** ***Privacy is not optional."*** Incorrect. Privacy and transparency are optional. We have view keys for that: [https://www.getmonero.org/resources/moneropedia/viewkey.html](https://www.getmonero.org/resources/moneropedia/viewkey.html) ***"No supply cap."*** A supply cap is a big negative as I pointed out. It means that the mining rewards are going down, which will lower the security of the entire BTC network. The mining profitability is only going down. Not to mention that there is no mechanism to replace lost coins. Furthermore, Monero has a very low supply. In fact, it's lower than Bitcoin's. Besides, only 150,000 XMR are added to the total supply every year. That means that 100 years from now, there will only be around 33 million XMR in existence. ***"No network effect."*** Monero's network effect is not as strong as Bitcoin's. But it has overtaken it on the darknet in terms of usage. It's now also overtaking Bitcoin on the clearnet. ***"No liquidity."*** This point I agree with. However, to say that there is no liquidity is an exaggeration. But I think it's only going to get better as Monero becomes more popular and decentralized exchanges such as Haveno and Serai grow. ***"Lousy SoV."*** It has gone up from $1 to $150 in less than a decade. The price has also been very stable despite all the delistings. ***"If hard forked regularly then it's not decentralized."*** I don't agree. The mining is decentralized and there are thousands of nodes all over the world. The fact that we have developers who, unlike the Bitcoin developers, maintain and improve the cryptocurrency does not mean it's not decentralized.

#Monero Con-Arguments Below is a Monero con-argument written by mic_droo. > Monero is a privacy coin – the biggest and most well-known privacy coin, at that. Its main appeal is that, other than most other crypto currencies, it really is private and anonymous and it has a huge community that loves that about it. > > There are, in my opinion, two clusters of arguments that can be made against Monero: those that generally disagree with Monero in general and think it’s dangerous, and those that generally think what Monero is doing is good, but that it doesn’t do a great job at it. > > Let’s start with the first one: the argument could be made that Monero is dangerous. As I’ve laid out in my [Privacy Con-post](https://np.reddit.com/r/CointestOfficial/comments/r6syvm/general_concepts_round_privacy_conarguments/hxqgi5x/) in the last round, complete privacy enables illegal activities – one the one hand if you, for example, kidnap someone, asking for Monero is a great choice. But elites can also engage in corruption more easily using a coin like that. It can also be used (and let’s be honest, that is happening) to avoid paying taxes – which in my opinion is a huge problem as 1) this leads to governments receiving less tax money (**yes**, I think taxes are a necessary and good thing) and 2) to them being more anti-crypto. If we want crypto in general to be more accepted, Monero isn’t doing anyone a favour, some [countries are cracking down on exchanges that offer privacy coins](https://www.techtarget.com/searchsecurity/news/252512394/Monero-and-the-complicated-world-of-privacy-coins) specifically, which might also lead to less and less exchanges offering XMR when crypto gets regulated more. > > Okay, so far so good, but even if you think complete privacy is exclusively good, Monero has a few downsides. Firstly, [it might not be as untraceable as it seems](https://www.wired.com/story/monero-privacy/) – in the past there have been a few problems that might have made you identifiable, especially if you weren’t cautious enough. Even though developers have fixed past loopholes, that doesn’t mean Monero will stay untraceable forever. The IRS [famously isn’t a fan and has a bounty on cracking Monero](https://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2020/09/14/irs-will-pay-up-to-625000-if-you-can-crack-monero-other-privacy-coins/?sh=3749d97585cc), and it’s naïve to assume it is *impossible* to do so. If people feel to secure now, they might be in trouble once the code is cracked. Secondly, it’s slow – with one transaction [taking about half an hour to be completed](https://www.monero.how/how-long-do-monero-transactions-take), which makes it unusable or at least very annoying for many applications. Thirdly, it’s a proof of work coin which, without going into too much detail (but see my [PoW con post](https://np.reddit.com/r/CointestOfficial/comments/r6vtbn/general_concepts_round_pow_conarguments_december/hyr768o/) is an inefficient system that is awful for the environment. Finally, Monero mining [is pretty centralized](https://bitcoinist.com/does-monero-have-a-serious-centralized-mining-problem/) making it a potential target of a 51% attack. ***** Would you like to learn more?

I like Monero (XMR). It has the following advantages over Bitcoin: - It's fungible - Privacy by default - It can handle more transactions due to its adaptive block size - Lower fees - A tail emission that ensures that miners will always be rewarded and that lost coins are replaced - The RandomX mining algorithm which makes it impossible to mine XMR with ASICs, thus keeping the mining decentralized. Feel free to come over to the Monero subreddit. It's a friendly community.

I’m bias but I think Monero XMR is all we need

Mentions:#XMR

Regarding functionality: BCH > BTC ADA > ETH & SOL XMR > XNO

If you only count the 3 character ones (such as BTC, ETH, XMR, XRP and so on) and only use the characters in the English alphabet that's 26^3, or 17, 576 combinations. I don't think that's going to be exhausted very soonest, especially since we also have tickers with 4+ characters (such as SHIB, MATIC, AVAX and so on)

I dont usually use it to buy anything. I just hold it. If I am buying something I like to use either LTC or XMR when possible. But I usually avoid ETH at all cost

Monero. Just look at it, it's being delisted from major exchanges but price is going up instead of tanking. XMR has a real world use case and is being used daily by lots of people already. Privacy is slept on, it's time will come, so I'd suggest to buy some and just forget about it for a year or two. The fact that major exchanges like Binance (that works closely with govt) delists XMR just proves that Monero is successful and have accomplished what it was designed to do. ERGO is a great project as well, do some research on both of them I'd say.

Im looking to attain Monero I can hold in my wallet so I can send it as form of payment for “services and goods” Edge Wallet application and Kraken have both been asking for my ID verification (pictures of my license) to verify my account before allowing me to add my bank account information to buy anything. Im looking for something straightforward to use… with low purchase and transfer fees. I was about to go ahead and buy some on Cake Wallet until I saw they were claiming XMR was $20 more expensive than everywhere else has posted… making it less valuable when I sent to market.

ZEC once (for a week) was 4x Bitcoin because people like me thought it was the next best thing.  Radiolab did an episode on XMR and interviewed the founder. Great episode.

If she was smart enough to pull it off then she was smart enough to know that she wouldn't be alive regardless if she gave it back or not . Those type torture to get those back, the death is the reward for giving it up . Torture can only last so long where as billions in XMR can provide generational wealth if done right

XMR (Monero) is the way

Mentions:#XMR

Not specifically, but I don't use Exodus for XMR. double\_spend being set to true would make me think you're trying to send coins that were already sent/spent. If you are trying to move your remaining XMR out of Exodus try subtracting the missing transaction from the total you are trying to send as well as enough to cover tx fees and see if you still get the error then.

Mentions:#XMR

OK smart guy how come when I send XMR I get this error message? {"name":"UnknownError","message":" {\"double_spend\":true,\"invalid_input\":true}","stack":"ApiError: {\"double_spend\":true,\"invalid_input\":true}\n at A.sendRawTransaction (C:\\AppData\\Local\\exodus\\app-24.25.5\\resources\\app.asar\\src\\app\\monero\\index.js:3:142383)\n at async C:\\AppData\\Local\\exodus\\app-24.25.5\\resources\\app.asar\\src\\app\\monero\\index.js:3:217445\n at async d (C:\\AppData\\Local\\exodus\\app-24.25.5\\resources\\app.asar\\src\\app\\monero\\index.js:3:217368)"}

I meant the name Exodus checks out. It was a joke. I assume the name implies leaving the traditional financial system behind but it could be a cruel joke in the end. Sure send me what you have, I'd like to take a look, although with XMR's privacy, I'm not sure how much I'll be able to see.

Mentions:#XMR

Yes, I use XMR on a weekly basis, which is why I continue to use Exodus since it supports XMR. I have no issues with it and never have.

Mentions:#XMR

If your name checks out, do you have any ideas or things havent tried. The transaction is on the blockchain, I can give any one that wants it the ID. The Tx was in my wallet for over half a year. Then a forced update for XMR was done and I use the multiple address function and thats when one single transaction went missing. I didnt send it to the wrong address because I had the funds for a long time. I simply lost one transaction from their UI.

Do you use XMR? Everything else works fine for me too, except xmr.

I don't have enough karma to post, so let's try here: Say I want to invest into crypto in a somewhat principled manner, as I do into the stock market. For stocks, I can buy S&P500 = collection of top stocks weighted by market cap. I could do that with crypto, check top 20 coins and invest by market cap. However, there are a few problems: Not all coins are meant for investment, for example USDT and USDC are meant to be stablecoins so it'd be an equivalent of adding dollar, euro, yen.. into S&P500 which makes no sense. How to deal with memecoins? On the one hand it seems I should exclude them as they are just memes and useless crap.. on the other hand maybe I should just make the market decide if it's crap or not? Where's the border between serious and memecoin? Maybe there are other things to consider? Gold is not in S&P500 as it's a commodity, so should I somehow further classify coins (apart from stable / non-stable)? Some seem to be just "tools" not meant for investment, like maybe BNB, XMR, .. - but I'm not well informed so could be wrong, or it's a blurry line. Some are just scams, though I don't know if there are many scams in top 20? Well presumably Tether is one. So is there any other objective criterion to exclude coins? Any thoughts?

The more people that mention LTC the weaker it gets. I've been told by friends and acquaintances that LTC is ready to go. They told me in April that it was "bound for a breakout", last July litecoin was ready for an ETF. Even in the froth of 2021, LTC *barely* hit its previous all time high. LTC is like XMR. Sure, it's great to use, and accepted by lots of people, but it's absolutely terrible for investing in compared to a ton of other coins in the space. Even if you invested in the absolute low of the last 5 years, dead bottom of Covid, $38, you didn't even double your money, and you wasted 4 years of the actual frothiest market to do it. Look at [the charts when Litecoin was $38](https://coinmarketcap.com/historical/20200322/) - Imagine you put any amount of money into anything else. - $120 Eth - $5k bitcoin - $11 bnb - $0.02 ADA - $2 link No one wants a LTC ETF. No one wants LTC.

I've got a good bit but truthfully I see eth alts pumping more percentage wise over the next run. BTC is the one original that will always be around and for the most part eth will also but unless eth becomes faster and cheaper eventually someone will claim its throne. These eth I view as just ways for the gov to infise themselves deaper into the crypto world by letting big pockets grab as much as they can . Maybe I'm wrong but I long for a world where there is a fast cheap functioning XMR that is accepted everywhere off centralization and BTC and eth are essentially what they are right now, investments . I'm not a Solana guy so I don't have much of an opinion on that and I think xrp has gotten in bed with there enemy it just hasn't completely reared its head . I like the thought of kaspa and if krc20 gets out it will probably get in the top 10. It's already made a jump since the announcement of marathon mining it

Do you realise how many users a mainstream wallet like Exodus has.. If there were a vulnerability, it would be incredibly widespread. Now for XMR, it is a bit iffy because you have to download the blockchain data for all your funds and transactions to show up correctly. That can take time. OR The reality is that you have compromised your wallet and are responsible yourself
