TED talk that has connected with me.

Also, for me, connects with Monero.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp0HIF3SfI4#t=14

(18 minutes)

I finally watched this. Thank you, Ginger, for the link. It has also connected with me and both Sinek's "Golden Circle" as well as the "Law of Diffusion of Innovation" are very pertinent to Monero.

I would highly recommend that the Devs and all Monero Early Adopters watch the video.
I believe that the Devs are doing their thing the right way, according to the premise that people will get onboard with Monero not because it is secure, private, and untraceable; but because they believe in the tenets of security, privacy, and personal liberty.

Is there a time they talk xmr? TED talks bore the living shit out of me even when I care about the content.

I've been running bitmonerod.exe on a win8.1 box and just noticed it is using 6GB or ram, I only have 8GB ram on that system so either I need to add more ram or is there a way to control how much ram daemon can use?

not sure monero is different to a flatscreen in that regard: many people are emotionally attached to a coin, just because they have spent time, work and money on it.

to get them to do that it seems a good way to try to transmit the "why".
this is my try at it (my actual believes btw):
 - i believe in equal rights for every human.
 - monetary freedom needs anonymity.
 - monero offers sound money for everybody at equal terms

Looks like we're heading for a new "ATH"? The price shows strong bullish signs. Smiley

I really want this to go up now. I think XMR is all that Bitcoin is lacking. Being on an ATH route right now witnesses a brand new future after the remaining fixes are incorporated into the binaries. Nice!!!

Hey, if you don't "get it," there isn't much I can do to persuade you that it is worth your approval. However, I will go ahead and paraphrase the speaker and attempt to interpret it for digestion in our context:

The WHY is more important than the WHAT. The human brain works in a way that the WHY is more at the core of what motivates each of us. Focus on the WHAT should be secondary to the WHY a person or organization does what they do, and the speaker points out that he has observed this commonality in successful people and organizations.

I see it being relevant here and in regard to Monero because the Devs focus first on WHY Monero is important and useful. That drives them to work hard on making it work well.
Also, the Adoption Curve or what Sinek refers to as the "Law of Diffusion of Innovation" is VERY relevant to Monero.

If you watch the video, the part where Sinek mentions that the Early Majority will never try something new until the Early Adopters have tried it and reported back that It Is Good. Because, he says, they will at first say "We don't like it, we don't need it, and frankly, you are scaring us."       
THAT IS HOW THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE WITH ANYTHING NEW. That's the complete lack of response that I got when I posted on my FB wall about MyMonero a few months back.
IMHO, the concepts Sinek talks about are relevant to ANYTHING, be it flatscreens or a cryptocurrency.

Thanks. Smiley I thought everyone already knew the question was "why"? My bad. I agree whole heartely just didn't need to be talked at for 18 minutes for that simple concept to be explained. BTW I still don't know where he talkes about XMR.

EDIT: Shit, I just noticed I misread the post! I thought it said he mentioned XMR. No wonder. DOH




I think DRK Rebranding to DASH is a good idea. If it was April Fools day I would think He was trolling his guys though. Smiley

Someone on reddit posted a screenshot of some transactions from a Bitcoin address and users were able to locate the person that owns these coins off of that screen shot alone. Scary to think about how easy this was for a group of people to do. Imagine if Google dedicated some of its resources to tracking people and their Bitcoin transactions. Makes me not want to use Bitcoin at all because now there is a permanent trail behind me that cannot be undone.

I used bitcoin anonymously to pay for a VPN service.

Using the service is legal, but I want to protect myself given my idiotic government is pushing to make collection of all internet "metadata" (DNS logs, IPs, cell tower locations etc.) mandatory in this country, and I value my privacy.

Here's what I did...

1.  Buy Monero and send to a private wallet
2.  Send Monero with mixing to new anonymous poloniex account (using one-time mail2tor email address for poloniex account, accessed via Tor over VPN service end-pointed outside 5-eyes countries)
3.  Sell Monero and send BTC to newly created one-time bitcoin wallet
4.  Send bitcoin to VPN provider

^--- This is why I own a few BTC's worth of Monero.  Once the people concerned about privacy/anonymity figure this out, monero uptake will rise rapidly.

In the meantime, the devs are working on the right stuff.. database blockchain and memory requirements are both key to getting mobile clients and more people using private monero wallets, so mixing becomes more practical.

Logging into mymonero.com always scares the crap out of me. The balance says "0 XMR" for a few moments until it updates. Every time, I think "Aaaand.. it's gone."

This works well and actually has mixing. I'm really not sure on the effort to crack needed but pretty good coin.

Still getting some error messages on MyMonero when I try to generate transactions:

"Too Many Amounts"

and a new one

"Failed to create transaction: Wrong number of mix outs provided (100 outputs, 99 mix outs)"

I keep retrying and guessing at lower amounts until it lets me generate a transaction. Thankfully, transaction fees are low enough that it doesn't hurt too much. And of course I must say that I love mymonero.com
I'm just giving some feedback.
