Why is the network hash rate going up and down so often by almost 25% within a few hours?

It is run by some bot. Some office turn off the servers in the night.

Why are people not noting if their PCs are abused for mining monero by a bot? It causes CPU load, heat, noise and stuff like that.

Monero is down a lot and I'm finally thinking of buying. The big jump in ether we will probably see an increasing interest in altcoins in general by the end of the month when bitcoingold drops. I really wish I had gotten into Monero before it huge move up. It's hard to manage crypto pricing because the underlying assets don't have a fundamental value...

This is why we should all be using plugins to prevent this bot mining in the first place. I have installed "No Coin" and added filters to "Adblock Plus" and added blocks in the "Hosts" file in Windows.

Plugins are available for various browsers.

Hey guys, I've noticed a few people in here mention about corrupted chains so I thought I'd point this out. Apparently INTEL chips have a bug that causes corruption on intensive cpu tasks such as mining.

https://themerkle.com/intel-cpu-bug-can-be-disastrous-for-windows-users-running-a-bitcoin-node-or-wallet/

Should I have on my tin foil hat? Producing cryptographic keys generally is cpu intensive.
You should have had that on a few cpu generations back. Cheesy
Backdoors abound in all sorts of hardware.

If that is the case than cryptocurrencies will provide the greatest bug bounties ever for that sort of thing. Seems like they wont last long in a world where cryptocurrencies have gone even semi mainstream. Bonus value.
As soon as they allowed CPU's to be changed (updated/patched official reason :: also true lately) you add vectors of attack (I.E. vulnerabilities) not to mention there is management software that can code chips remotely. This is one reason nation states are supporting their own cpu development programs.

Ways you can help with increasing GROWTH and ADOPTION ($$$$$$$$):

1.Subscribe, up-vote, support, and contribute comments across all Monero communities and forums

2.Mention Monero via "word of mouth"

3.Attend local Monero meet-up groups (or events)

4.Youtube or Video marketing

5.Graphic design – create new Monero Logos & Imagery

6.Purchase and spread Monero Stickers, Images (or Posters) around your locality

7.Wear Monero Merchandise (T-shirts, Hats etc)

8.Try to teach Wealthy ULTRA HIGH NET WORTH (UHNW) people about Monero

9.Run a Monero node

10.If your are a Merchant – accept Monero as a form of payment (or encourage other merchants to do so)

11.Write Articles, Blog posts and e-books – educate!

12.Create user-guides or materials in foreign Languages/Countries

13.Translate Monero material into Foreign Languages

14.Contact Exchanges, Websites, the Media to request they adopt Monero, or contribute to Monero's Coverage

15.Simplify how we express or explain this technology's usefulness (in layman's terms) to noobs (eg., ELI5)

16.Contribute Code or Web design

17.Protect Monero's REPUTATION by refuting negative press or comments and steering the discussion away from Criminality (privacy is NOT a crime)

18.DO NOT commit any crimes with Monero

19.Get people to join this sub-reddit

20.HOLD ON FOR DEAR LIFE (HODL)

Can someone give more insights about the privacy/unttracebility of XMR compared with DeepOonion?
I use TOR network offten while I am online so I know it is very safe/secure. Any more knowledgable person here about this two?
DeepoNion has also strong community I see so tempting price at this moment

Well you know I just read a paper earlier today, Monero Research Lab Whitepaper - Subaddresses, (it was liked a few posts up) that had a relatively concise while comprehensive overview of exactly the question you are asking here, so I think I will use it here.

Quote
Privacy within Monero transactions is achieved by three primary constructions: ring signatures, one-time keys, and amount commitments. The use of ring signatures ensures that an attacker cannot determine the actual input public key used in the transaction, as it is obscured by the presence of randomly chosen input public keys [3]. Amount commitments use homomorphic properties to guarantee that while a third party is not able to determine the amount of a transaction output, it can prove that the transaction inputs and outputs are balanced. When combined with a range proof to ensure that the output is within a defined and valid range, commitments mask transaction amounts while avoiding misuse by a malicious spender. One-time keys are generated using transaction parameters and the recipient’s published wallet address, and are intended to make it impossible for anyone but the recipient to identify the destination of transactions or spend the resulting funds.

It will be four instead of three "primary constructions" once we get korvi up and running. Korvi development is fully funded and chugging along. Once it is completed monero will also have the same sort of privacy tool offered by DeepOnion (arguably better since i2p is arguably better than tor) in addition to all of the already mentioned.

Basically the long and short of it is that all the other privacy focused projects out there are amateur hour compared to monero. Nothing even comes close. Not even in the same galaxy as monero. I wish more people understood. I feel so bad for them getting led astray by fancy marketing. Sad

If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?

Besides what Anon136 said, it's pretty easy to run Monero over Tor, as full node or using remote node for lightwallet:

Note by the way that the special measures required there to prevent leakage of the node ID no longer apply. This was fixed in the code and the node ID is randomized at each startup (for any recent version of the code that will even function on the network at the current fork level).

True very good project.
(top 5 by market cap?) I hope it's price won't grow so fast so I can collect as much as possible Cheesy I believe in 10 years Monero will be private currency with biggest market cap.

Surprised this hasn't been posted yet. I've been catching up with the last weeks tech news and this is worth keeping an eye on, it seems to be developing faster than anyone predicted.

Do we have to download full blockchain or there's a option to prune?

Today is the first time I withdrew my XMR from an exchange to my wallet but it's still saying unconfirmed Can someone tell me when I can again transfer my XMR token to a new address?

Thanks Cheesy

Which OS and wallet do you have?

Anyway, Monero wallets, Windows, Linux, OSX and Android cli and gui, they all support remote node/daemon which gets you going faster, but you give up privacy (your IP address) to the remote node/daemon owner, so maybe use a VPN.
