Monero upcoming as a payment method on one of the Dark web services. This might be boost for the price.

I read something today that Monero cant provide fully anonymous transactions, because its leaking IP-addresses somehow. I dont want to spread fud or anything, this just interests me and you maybe can give me a clear answer here if this is the case or not?!

It's not leaking anything. That is by design for all nodes to be able to find each other on a decentralized platform. It has only been an issue the last year for fudders and alot of "Anon" coins are looking at changing that and XMR is one of them with the best solution which is IP2 where the shitcoins are using TOR which is compromised. BTW you have always been able to run XMR through TOR (well for as long as I can remember).


Alright, good to know that. Thats why I was asking. I am currently looking for the best anonymous coin out there, and found this fud about monero not being fully anonymous. Therefore thanks for the explanation. I guess sticking with monero is the best choice as it is already far in development compared to other anon coins.

I found a .keys file with a date stamp from May, which is when I would have set up the wallet. When I used the wallet name to start wallet-cli, it asked for a password and I gave it the password I had used in May and the wallet opened, showing no balance. I tried rescan_bc and it came back with zero balance.

Unless you have another idea, I think I'm sunk.

OK, here are some theories of what might have happened:

1. Maybe someone got hold of your wallet file or seed and withdrew your monero from your wallet. (people get hacked from time to time)
When you typed rescan_bc, did you see funds coming in and then going out? Each transaction will be listed one per line, with incoming funds as green and outgoing funds as purple. Each line will have the block number, from which you can tell when that transaction took place.

2. Maybe you have another wallet, that's saved in a different folder. Issue a search in all your drives for .keys files (and don't forget to include hidden folders in the search)

3. Maybe there's something wrong with your daemon or your blockchain copy. In the monerod window type 'diff' and post here the number it outputs for BH.

You said earlier something about a mnemonic seed. Do you still have it?
1. When I type in rescan_bc, there are no transactions, just a zero balance.

2. I did the search for .keys and found a wallet from May, 2017, which is around the time I created the wallet. When I try to open that wallet, it opens with the password I had recorded for Monero.

3a. First, I noticed the following when I started Monerod.exe:
2017-11-30 22:40:59.290 [P2P7]  WARN    net.dns src/common/dns_utils.cpp:487    WARNING: no two valid MoneroPulse DNS checkpoint records were received

3b. This is a copy of the last line before I entered 'diff' and then the line following diff:
2017-11-30 22:44:39.681 [P2P7]  INFO    global  src/cryptonote_protocol/cryptonote_protocol_handler.inl:1521    SYNCHRONIZED OK
diff

4. Yes I still have the mnemonic code associated with the wallet created in May, 2017 as well as the password and name of the wallet.

Monero is finally starting to get it's due.

I think it's just a matter of time before it overtakes DASH.

The centralization of DASH makes it highly untrustable in my mind.

I wish i had bought monero when it was at 1$, So stupid. I never imagine how high this coin would be. Of course, Dark Web has a lot to do with monero growth.

Is not just the Dark Web, Is the anonimity in general. Nobody likes to other people knows how many money do you own. Poor Vitalik, everybody knows he owns 500k ether (give or take)  Cool

I am quite sure he owns some more cryptocurrencies besides his 500 k Ether (if it's true what you say) Wink Probably some XMR as well!

There seem to be a load of bot posts here recently, or am I just noticing loads of pointless posts which appear to be bot-like?  Not sure. Either way, it kind of makes reading the posts here not worth the effort  Huh

Yep this site is infested.  Fumigation required.

add:

Not sure if coincidence, but I've shifted from ignoring, to complaining, to reporting them as bot spam, and now they've been disappearing...

Lol, such a shame I have to qualify my statements these days, of all the things I've lost in life I miss my mind the most. Cheesy

IPFS is sooo cool. Now it can be used to instantly deploy and connect to a decentrally hosted chat room. So anyway. Thought I would just drop this here and see if anyone is interested. If nothing else maybe someone can help me test it out. See if this link works the way I think it should.

https://orbit.chat/#/channel/monero

Whats this mean?

NOTE! Orbit is still more or less experimental. It means Orbit is currently not secure, APIs will change and clients can break over time. If you come across problems, it would help greatly to open issues so that we can fix them as quickly as possible.

Interesting. I wonder what the theoretical attack vectors would be. I spent a while tonight poking around the github trying to understand how it all works. Can't say I made too much progress in that regard. Cheesy

I just was thinking it's JS based so I'd take a peek before running anything and thats the first thing that popped out at me. I don't know if it's referring to the chat not being secure or the connection? I'm not the trusting type and allow JS only on certain sites.

1. When I type in rescan_bc, there are no transactions, just a zero balance.

2. I did the search for .keys and found a wallet from May, 2017, which is around the time I created the wallet. When I try to open that wallet, it opens with the password I had recorded for Monero.

3a. First, I noticed the following when I started Monerod.exe:
2017-11-30 22:40:59.290 [P2P7]  WARN    net.dns src/common/dns_utils.cpp:487    WARNING: no two valid MoneroPulse DNS checkpoint records were received

3b. This is a copy of the last line before I entered 'diff' and then the line following diff:
2017-11-30 22:44:39.681 [P2P7]  INFO    global  src/cryptonote_protocol/cryptonote_protocol_handler.inl:1521    SYNCHRONIZED OK
diff
BH: 1454598, TH: 02bfba6379a04c8c7fc8495efdaf9eae1a1e7454c39ce613776e15484ae258a7, DIFF: 32213148640, HR: 268442905 H/s

4. Yes I still have the mnemonic code associated with the wallet created in May, 2017 as well as the password and name of the wallet.

1. So you type rescan_bc and you see the counter "Height: x / y" where y is the current height (BH from monerod diff output) and x goes from 1 to y, right?
And when it finishes scanning the blockchain (x reaches y) it displays this?
Refresh done, blocks received: ......
Balance: 0, unlocked balance: 0

If so, then it means this wallet never had any transactions, neither in nor out. Even if someone had stolen your funds, you would still see the amount coming in and then being transferred out. But since you don't see any transactions, it means you never transfered monero to this wallet.
Back in May when you transfered monero to your wallet, did you see the amount in your wallet? Was it the CLI or GUI wallet?

2. So that's the only .keys file you found on your entire harddrive(s)?

3.a. That's nothing to worry about, I get those too.
Here Fluffypony, one of the core developers explains why you get that message:
https://np.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/419qdd/p2p4warning_no_two_valid_moneropulse_dns/cz0npvo/
The post is a bit old but I think it still stands true (if that's not the case, can one of the developers please chime in?)

3.b. Your monero daemon is fine.

4. Try to restore the wallet from that mnemonic seed you have.
Open a command prompt in the folder where the monero CLI executables are and run this:
monero-wallet-cli --restore-deterministic-wallet
and go through the process (give it a name, enter the 25 words, set a password, let it sync)

while the anonymity of the coins will be good it came at a price when a new coin with the best anonymity possible everything will go back to 1$

What really comes at a price, a really high one IMO, is using coins you THINK are anonymous and in reality they aren´t. AlphaBay has a good story to tell about this.

We're planning on building out a MimbleWimble system, probably as a layer 2 / sidechain. We'll likely do it in Rust, though, so we won't be able to inherit anything from grin except their learnings in building it:)
