I agree with you. But I don’t think litecoin want to replace Monero, though. XMR is the privacy gold standard and I doubt anyone thinks differently. But litecoin is actually a very successful project and I like the fact that privacy is something people are caring about now.

Mentions:#XMR

If you really mean to know. Then please be transparent about your Monero (XMR) reserves by declari g it publicly. You'd win a lot of hearts and new users will flock in in droves. Transparency is key that is missing it Binance.

Crypto and BTC are not the same thing. Also XMR is amazing. Stop buying centralized crap and you won’t have this issue anymore. You’re greedy, you bought trash hoping to sell it for more dollars than you paid and you got burned. You don’t get it.

Mentions:#BTC#XMR

It's cool man, I'm more than open to discussion about coins that have potential to actually be used and spent. Yep, BTC, BTCLN and ETH are dead payment gateways on my stores these days. My coin of choice is BCH. BCH and LTC are the most spent coins with me in 2022, but I don't like the LTC project much, it's a carbon copy of BTC and if it ever got a huge price increase, they would also move over to LN/sidechains.. it works well now and has 4x the capacity by design than BTC but ultimately it would have the same fate if popular and expensive. Also the community don;t seem intereset much in merhcnat opinions or views. XMR is my second choice, but it is kinda clunky, with the bonus of great privacy.. running an XMR node uses a huge amount of resources compared to other coins, and without using a third party payment processor it is much harder to integrate as a payment option on a store. When selling legal products it's kinda overkill IMHO.

Maybe. I've actually been considering removing BTC and BTC LN options from my existing stores, and no longer add it to new projects, because since 2017 barely anybody spends it with me, in 2022 it's only around 5% of my total crypto income, even with an LN option. In the main bitcoin sub the majority of people are not interested in spending it any longer, but <2017 it was actually the only coin I had listed as a crypto option. but as long as all these coins have at least some value, even if it is below £0.01, it is still useful to me and any other merchants. Coins I'm currently accepting are BTC, BTCLN, BCH, LTC, DASH, XMR, DOGE, ETH and VTC. ETH is also useless now as p2p cash but around 2018 a lot of people were spending it with me.

Why do yall offer significantly higher rates for XMR lending than any other PoW coin, and regularly freeze withdraws while mainting XMR deposits open? Wrong answers only.

Mentions:#XMR

how is it privacy if its opt in and optional. its not even fully private. If I wanted a privacy coin id use monero or zec. the funniest thing about the mimble wimble launch was XMR pumped while LTC was down. Which would tell you how little the market cares about a shitcoin like LTC

Mentions:#XMR#LTC

Monero experiences a lot of "maintenance" on the Binance chain, I can only suspect this happens due to a lack of XMR liquidity. A lot of people complain about it, matter of fact, I experienced it twice. That and the not so excellent customer support- regarding this very issue- caused me to switch platforms. It would be nice to have this situation resolved to a point in which it barely happens, if ever.

BTC, LTC, XMR and all other proof-of-work coins will be compromised by quantum computers in the next 10-20 years if they are not regulated out of existence before then through some crypto energy-efficiency Act. This looming death sentence will prevent any of these coins from reining champion in the long term. BTC might fork to upgrade to double SHA-512 or double or or even quad Skein-1024... make it as complicated as you want - it is only a matter of time before it is cracked. If it becomes a game of cat and mouse then growth will be stifled.

I do think LTC will be the payment coin when crypto becomes mainstream. I know BTC has lightning, XLM and NANO have feeless aswell, XMR has privacy aswell and if ETH sort gas out it'll be a contender but it just works. 0 downtime, not too much price fluctuation and it just works

Monero is great and all, but anyone claiming good privacy = gains/high market cap, let alone flipping btc or eth, clearly haven’t been following XMR price history. XMR didn’t even hit a new ATH during this recent bull run. It’s been lukewarm for years. The demand just isn’t there from investors.

Mentions:#XMR

Can’t use XMR on most exchanges so Litecoin will be used more.

Mentions:#XMR

It's a hard one for me with LTC, on one hand I like it right now as it is massively used as a payment coin and is about 40% of my crypto income currently, at the start of 2018 it was about 90% of my crypto income for a while but at that point I only had BTC, ETH, and BCH added.. BCH was so new, most people knew of LTC and used that mostly. but last year BCH caught up with it and they are almost neck to neck for what people pay me in now. What I don't like about LTC is it follows the same development plan as BTC, which includes LN. For now we don't need it, but many years down the line, if the price gets much higher, the fees will become too much, they are already quite a bit higher than BCH, and instead of trying to scale on chain, they will just start using LN which I'm not a massive fan of (though do have it as an option for BTC), but hardly anybody uses it and I need to run an extra server just to accept it. Also I don't really like the community much, it seems to be populated more by investor types that want to see the price rise loads, rather than being mainly focused in peer to peer cash use. It's hard work being a merchant that accepts many coins, very few communities value my opinion and I get a lot of toxicity towards me because I'm not "all in" on one coin. The only communities where I really fit in are BCH and XMR sadly.

ETH is an alt by definition, and by that definition will always be an alt. Some coins I see being one of the big boys long term. BNB XMR ADA

It's optional for LTC while always on for XMR

Mentions:#LTC#XMR

Possibly XMR in the distant cyberpunk future but it is generally folly to believe any crypto can overtake BOTH BTC and ETH. There are many alternative platforms in the top 20 that can conceivably reach 3rd place after ETH and make the holders very rich.

Lol "bcash clown" I'm active in this sub every day, and have been for years. Sold 100% of my bcash the day it forked, but you can't even fathom original thought, or nuance. If I complain about Saylor, I'm a bcash shill lol. If I'm anything, it's an XMR shill. But you don't even have an argument to respond with, because it's obvious circular logic. BTC is a store of value. What gives it a store of value? People believing the price is going up. What makes people beleive btc's price is going up? Because it's a store of value. Nice.

>With BTC that would also mean never use ANY service that could be tied to your identity at all. One fuck up and everything is visible. Agreed, and never have and never will. Regarding a breech, they would need the full site database and be able to see what wallet people had sent to the site, or sent out of the site to, which is unlikely. Normal people can't just follow a wallet to a site and get all the info. If using the buy goods to cash out public ledger coins, the best best is using somewhere that is not in the 13 eyes, so even a court order will not work. Agreed though XMR is a better option for this type of thing, but I think some people have a heightened sense of importance, no government agency is going to any kind of effort to see what Bob or Alice spent their crypto on, unless they are a large drug dealer or similar. Social engineering or simple human error are more successful and easy attack vectors.

Mentions:#BTC#XMR

I would prefer Ergo,XMR, Algo, ADA and some stable coin as top 5. It would mean a more promising future for crypto. BTC and ETH don’t fulfill their promise, and their security track record isn’t even close as good as the coins I mentioned, see dao hack(ETH) and inflation bug(BTC)

Mentions:#XMR

I dont think so, but it does, betting on XMR. We hate pocket watching

Mentions:#XMR

In it's current state and price range yes it is. This wouldn't be the case if it got big though with a high price, take a look at how the fees and scaling system works. But can confirm, even with LN option, it is used more than BTC on my stores in 2022. BCH and XMR are the best options, DASH is not bad either... a lot of people pay me in LTC though it has the same path plan as BTC and is only good in it's current low price state without needing a side chain, though still 4x better than BTC... If privacy is not a concern BCH wins hands down, next XMR if privacy is needed.

"it's just a different product"... that already serves one of the vital applications you're championing BCH for (quick transactions) and does it better (feeless). And that's kind of the problem here. BCH seems like "jack of all trades, master of none." It doesn't hold value like BTC (which even BTC isnt great at recently lol), it's not anonymous like XMR, it's not feeless like XLM or NANO. BTC Lightning network cleans up whatever applications are left. I just don't see an impetus for anyone to actually use it if they don't share your philosophical views on BCH.

What about everything else in my previous comment though? If speed is the issue, XLM or NANO work. If you're philosophically committed to the implications of BCH, I get that, I see XMR that way, but just having philosophical commitment doesn't create a use case for it (XMR [which has a huge monopoly on anonymous transactions already](https://monero.com/charts/shielded)) I've transferred Bitcoin tons of times and I usually pay more like $0.20, maybe $50 is possible in theory but it's certainly not common in practice.

Mentions:#XLM#BCH#XMR

Sorry for replying like an ass lol Imagine you have 100k in XMR and tomorrow our brain dead leaders decide to make it illegal to possess and transact with it, for whatever reason they use to convince the plebs to support it. How do you use your XMR from that point on without risking jail time or huge fines? You'd need to launder it somehow to use it "legitimately", which is definitely possible but no something the average person would want to be involved. No one, except those involved in illegal activities or die hard privacy fans, would accept XMR after that day. They can't "kill" it, but they can push it to the fringes of our society and make it barely usable. This is just my view. I don't see a future for a legitimate use of XMR because governments won't allow common folk to hide wealth like their rich buddies do. Nonetheless, I imagine it might flourish on the black markets, because it's perfect for it.

Mentions:#XMR

BTC used to be spent lots more than it is now, until people with this "never spend" attitude came along. I agree though it's likely to never be accepted much as payment now, mostly because it was crippled and no longer actually works well as a payment system, and secondly because we are now surrounded by the type of people who don't want to spend it, and only got into crypto from 2017 and onwards when they were told by the media and others it will make them rich. Personally I devote most of my time to projects like BCH and XMR now days which are already more widely used than BTC as a payment method and the communities are not full of the same type of people who can't see why it is a good idea to use it as peer to peer cash, the peer to peer cash use case is pushed in those communities and they don;t have the stupid "HODL" culture.

Mentions:#BTC#BCH#XMR

Monero has appealing and sustainable tokenomics. Next month will start its tail emission phase, where mining rewards become fixed at 0.6 XMR per (every-two-minute) block. This maintains security at the cost of modest inflation. The total supply of Monero will still stay below Bitcoin's for almost another two decades.

XMR MUST be used. Well, you can hodl it, but you will definitely have good time spending it, too.

And this is coming from someone with a decent eth position, at the end of the day the only coin that matters is BTC… maybe XMR… probably XMR.

#Monero Con-Arguments Below is an argument written by Magnetronaap which won 1st place in the Monero Con-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > **My arguments taken from [the last Monero Con-Arguments thread](https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/ovmtu9/rcc_cointest_coin_inquiries_monero_conarguments/hhzqklu\/)** (1st re-use as per Cointest rules, no revisions yet). > > **1st issue: speed.** Monero transactions take quite a while to be verified, meaning that it won't ever be the coin of choice for quick purchases. That limits the usecase of the coin and Monero as a whole, since the main usecase of the coin is to be used for purchases. > > **2nd issue: centralised mining.** Monero suffers from centralised mining pools where lots of miners load up in the same pool to get better rewards for their efforts. While understandable from a miner's perspective, this potentially hurts XMR and (theoretically) leaves it vulnerable to attacks and manipulation of the system. > > **3rd issue: availability.** Being a privacy coin, Monero is a serious danger in the eyes of those who want to prevent full privacy of transactions. That means XMR more than other coins could become a victim of (in my eyes inevitable) regulation of the cryptosphere. Naturally that will affect how people might discover and adopt Monero. > > **4th issue: criminal abuse.** Much has been said about this already, but at the end of the day a fully private way of sending transactions is going to attract those who do not want to be discovered. That could include people who act outside the law and thus XMR would be aiding criminal activities. Regardless of the true size of this issue, it remains an issue nonetheless. > > **5th issue: proof of work.** Monero is based on Proof of Work. There is plenty of literature available that discusses Proof of Work versus Proof of Stake in great detail, so I will not go into depth here. A few of the key differences in favor of PoS include use of electricity, less centralisation and less vulnerable to 51% attacks. ***** Would you like to learn more?

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?

*Since crystal-balling, moongazing, and throwing guesses into the air is the way, lemme try:* **The 2027 Top 5 Cryptocurrencies** BTC - it's wedged in XRP - it's collection of financial institutions keep this baby afloat XMR - cocaine is a hell of a drug!

Fair question. It’s fundamental to how blockchain technology works. SOL doesn’t just own a bunch of tokens, they own, operate, and manage the entire trust network. There are no SOL miners. No miners means no third party audits. Everything that happens on SOL’s chain can be done with a simple code update. That’s the difference between a centralized chain and a decentralized chain like BTC, ETH, XMR, etc.

If I have Crypto sitting in cold storage how safe is it? The BTC, ETH, & XMR, I have on my hardware wallet cannot be stolen or transferred unless I move it. We saw in 2017 what it would look like to recover assets on a decentralized chain when Ethereum hard forked after the DAO hack. It took a global effort and every mining community on the network to agree to roll back the hack. Those conditions have not changed and because of the explosive adoption since then it is unlikely a similar effort could be duplicated. SOL doesn’t operate that way. They own the chain, the IP, and for all intents and purposes the keys. If a GOV authority went to then with a warrant and demanded my SOL they would be forced to hand it over(same with exchanges; see Canada v freedom convoy) and there’s nothing I can do about. But that’s not the point. The point is if the GOV can compel the organization to hand over my SOL through legitimate methods, that means bad actors can do it through illegitimate methods. SOL may consider themselves a blockchain like Bitcoin and Ethereum but they don’t have anywhere near the same safety measures a decentralized blockchain has.

Only one worth talking about to the best of my knowledge. There's really only three useful cryptos these days: BTC, ETH, XMR

This is a real danger for BTC. Because it is ASIC-mined, only large organizations can usefully mine. Corporates are always under the sway of governments, especially authoritarian ones. Decentralization comes from CPU mining, allowing average users being able to usefully earn coins from mining on their own consumer-level PCs and laptops. Decentralized mining pools like [p2pool](https://p2pool.io) are the best possible protection against 51% attacks. Fun fact: with [a few mouse clicks](https://imgur.com/gallery/4Da5R6q), *you* can start earning untraceable anonymous XMR. You don't need an ASIC. You don't need an expensive GPU. You need 50GB (pruned) or 200GB (full) disk space, and a CPU.

Mentions:#BTC#CPU#XMR

BTC sure, but that doesn't mean it is safer to hold now. Also disingenuous to say they have done "better" when tether has done what it was created to do: be worth $1. But someone could have been holding XMR for the past 5 years and still be down 75%, so no, it hasn't done "a lot better" for everyone.

Mentions:#BTC#XMR

Finally the storm of the LUNA and UST fading and we are coming to the normal days for the CC. Men this is the first time i am seeing the XMR mention on that much time in this sub.

This is why we need more privacy coins. XMR is not enough.

Mentions:#XMR

Time to bag some XMR.

Mentions:#XMR

XMR and you now what one usually buys with it. :)

Mentions:#XMR

To immediately swap for other coins. GBP doesn't have a lot of trading pairs, especially XMR (Binance just added it not long ago. Kraken delisted XMR in the UK, etc) and while it's working, it does hold value in-between tx better than other coins. But I always trade it straight away

Controversial: XMR lawsuit to end, in XMRs favour.

1. Privacy Tokens - XMR 2. L1 protocols like ETH which also had road maps and constant development. 3. Meme coins for sure 4. Digital Decentralised money in general

Mentions:#XMR#ETH

XMR for sure. Best use case.

Mentions:#XMR

You aren't very bright or lack very little awareness and foresight. That you are right about. But what you are saying has nothing to do with me so I don't know whyd insinuate that I see it as an attack. All that I can see from every comment you make. Is a man that one perspective and he will die trying to defend that perspective while not realizing it is all confirmation bias. The moment you mentioned Decentralization and XMR there was nothing anybody could do.

"Already exist. XMR-" Lol it's over

Mentions:#XMR

Already exist. XMR doesn’t rely on ASIC mining, or staking, and is currently phasing out mining pools for true 100% decentralization. No other crypto has accomplished that.

Mentions:#XMR

Don't forget about LTC and XMR!

Mentions:#LTC#XMR

XMR works as intended

Mentions:#XMR

Sounds kinda sus. Time for more XMR

Mentions:#XMR

This is also too black and white. For example XMR is decenteralised, has no CEO, is anonym, exists for a long time, is widely used on the black market (is replacing bitcoin in that space), is minable with common PC CPUs etc. Then there are the compeditors for ETH that don't try to do the same thing as BTC but most of them are crap. Then there are some few like DOT and Atom that try to do more than ETH but are new, not that decentralised and a big gamble but worth looking into. The issue is that many "investor" don't know anything about crypto, they are allways at risk to pick some shit coins with no or very little utility just because they heard some influencers shilling it or reading dayli about it on r/cc after a 10× pump, then they buy the top of a crypto they don't even understand and blame others when they lose most of theyr money

My dumbass opinion is BTC, XMR, ZEC, LTC, and then everything else I care about is tied for fifth. This list is based on ignorance and mania.

One problem, Tribalism! For example I would argue that XMR is a far better currency than BCH and is actually being used far more widely than BCH, we would disagree, merchants would get annoyed accepting multiple different currencies.

I started accepting BTC on webstores in 2011, in 2017 people basically stopped paying me with it so I added other coins. My goal is still the same, p2p cash, but I'm more loyal to projects like BCH and XMR now days that continue the goal BTC did before the masses came along and changed the narrative. My total crypto income is around 15% of my total income in 2022, around 20% if I include other crypto services I run that are not webstores. I use a 15% discount incentive for crypto.

That happens all the time 24/7 with at stock, crypto etc. I am sure there have been many suicides committed to due to failed investments in BTC, ETH, XMR and all other blue chip crypto.
