Short answer - it's complicated.

Longer answer - even if you have Monero you could be forced to surrender your password if there is suspicion of you hiding ill gotten gains in your wallet:
http://kernelmag.dailydot.com/issue-sections/features-issue-sections/11071/police-force-password-cellphone/

Basically the 4th AND 5th amendments to the U.S. Constitution have both been trashed by successive administrations.

I think the best law-abiding argument in favor of Monero is that you can be your own bank and keep your assets safe and confidential. The Government is certainly stealing from we the people, but commercial banks are getting their piece of the action as well (recent example...):
https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/07/wells-fargo-awash-in-scandal-faces-violations-over-car-insurance-refunds.html

My advice - keep it secret, keep it safe, and consider getting the hell out of the FUBAR republic.

Luckily I don't live in the US and I don't face these problems. It surprises me every time I hear what this 'bastion of freedom' actually does to its citizens. Wish you all the best.


The funny. really sad. thing is that most people in the US have no idea what is going on and think they live in the freest place on the earth. Sheeple morons.
and people around the world still buy into the whole notion of american dream. I think Jeffries said it best in this video.

I love both these guys!

That was great! Lol it was worth taking time out of my patriots game for. Smiley It usually takes a comedian to tell the truth.

XMR is slipping farther and farther down cryptomarketcap.com list.   The price is holding up fine, but not a good sign to have it slide down too far and then it will be irrelevant and people will leave.

Good time to buy do you think?

XMR always seems to get back up to the 0.17 - 0.018 mark eventually.

Darkcoin still shows up, apparently exceptions can be bought.

What are the major differences between monero and zcash, both being developed towards anonymity. Long term?

I remember hearing about a month ago monero had a bug in the software that allowed people to mint new coins, and that its a problem because it being anonymous you cant see how many coins there are to check

This is a great time to buy if you afford it, this market is being intentionally suppressed and we all know what happens when that stops. Wink

That bug was not only Monero's bug, all cryptonote coins had it until Monero devs got that fixed, and the XMR blockchain was not compromised, you can read the details here:

https://getmonero.org/2017/05/17/disclosure-of-a-major-bug-in-cryptonote-based-currencies.html

And that was just one of the obstacles Monero had to pass in order to survive in past 3 years. XMR path clearly follows BTC path - trustless, open source, community managed and funded, fair distribution PoW - ZEC doesn't have any of those characteristics, its a closed source trusted setup, has corporate management and 20% miner tax.
Monero is a battle hardened veteran with BTC fundamentals with tech that even fixes some BTC issues and has dev team with proven integrity.
ZEC yet has to prove itself when things get tough - do you trust ZEC devs that they won't secretly release more coins or expose your transactions to someone?

This is wrong or at least misleading. That bug, had it been exploited (as it was in some other cryptonote-based coins but not Monero), would been visible on the blockchain.

It is possible in theory that there could be bugs that are not detectable, but this was not one.
