Monero Rocks again with a news :

Monero to be accepted as payment by 45 musicians including @MariahCarey, @Sia, @Weezer, @LanaDelRey, @thelumineers, @G_Eazy, @DollyParton, @dixiechicks, @Slayer for holidays.


Quote
“As cryptocurrencies become more popular, it’s important that my fans have choices when it comes to how they buy my songs and merchandise,” said rap star G-Eazy in a statement. “Given Monero is one of the safest, most secure and most private cryptocurrencies, it’s one of the best options for my fans this holiday season — and just in time for my new album.”

Rofl what? Well, hey, thanks for the endorsement Mr. "G-Eazy". Or is it just Mr. Eazy and G is the first name? How did this become a thing? Did "G-Eazy" just call up his "nigga" FluffyPony on a lazy Saturday afternoon and be like "Hey you know I was thinking"? There HAS to be a story behind this.
Let us know when you find out, my nigga.

How likely is it that an infecdet android phone behaves as a keylogger when it is connected via wifi to a laptop?

So the laptop is connected via wifi to the android phone and the android phone is connected to the internet. Is it even possible anyhow to phone log the pressed keys of the laptop when the connection between the laptop and the phone is made by the wifi?

I think it is almoust impossible, or else we would have huge keylogger problem since wifi is widely used not just privatly but also on many other public premises.

I am worried about that any kryptos seed could be stolen this way.

So what do you think?

XMR performs well during the huge bitcoin pump while other altcoins mainly go down. This is exciting to see XMR is adopted by the mainstream in dark net.   Grin

In these New Year holidays (from December 26, Christmas) 45 very popular musicians and 5 online stores will accept payment on their websites using Monero. There is a possibility of growth on the background of this, since the musicians are very famous https://goo.gl/HheCSD

I am worried about that any kryptos seed could be stolen this way.

So what do you think?

If it was possible it would be a pretty wonky attack vector. The highest hanging fruit one might say. Almost everyone who gets hacked around here has it happen in one of two ways. First is phishing links. Possibly to malware but usually to fake web wallets that appear convincing. The second is crypto currency related software with malware hidden inside. Could be some sort of wallet for some dinky alt coin. Or mining software. You get the gist. Someone else chime in if you I'm missing something here but that probably accounts for 99% of it.

There are a few that never knew how they got hacked so it's a good idea to secure against ever vector you can. I think I posted something on similar android vulnerabilities not to long ago you might want to search on that pönde.

How can we check the balance of our cold storage?

I try with this http://xmr.llcoins.net/checktx.html but I get this message:

Failed to get transaction data! Perhaps MoneroBlocks is down?

You can use either of these guides to verify that your transaction correctly arrived at your cold storage address:

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/6137/how-do-i-as-a-recipient-verify-that-my-transaction-actually-arrived (useful if you withdraw from an exchange to your cold wallet)

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/6134/how-do-i-as-a-sender-verify-that-my-transaction-actually-arrived (useful if you used the GUI/CLI to send funds to your cold wallet)

However, if you want to set up a proper view wallet (which also monitors outgoing transactions), see step 1 to 6 from here:

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/2868/is-there-any-way-to-construct-a-transaction-manually/2916
Thanks dEBRUYNE, it was useful.

Now I just want to check if my understanding is correct.
If I have made 2 different tx to an address, is it normal to only have displayed the outputs associated with one tx when I use the xmrchain block explorer?
I can only do a research with one tx id in order to display the outputs linked to that tx, and I should do the same thing with the second transaction, therefore I will never have displayed the sum of the outputs linked to two transactions, is that correct?

On a block explorer you can only "decrypt" transactions on a case by case basis. By contrast, if you set up a view-only wallet it'll be able to see all incoming transactions to it.

This may be of help too:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/7eim2d/okay_so_paper_wallet_made_test_send_sent_view/dq5ch1s/

Hopefully this sufficiently answers your question.

Sure of course. First of all make sure you have your seed written down and stored away safely. Next just back up the files [wallet_name] and [wallet_name].keys in the directory that you installed monero into. Then just move those 2 files right back where they came from after the fresh install.

That is all assuming the windows version isn't TOO different from the linux version. I have never used the windows wallet.

So I'm reading and trying to digest this bulletproofs whitepaper and It says here.

Quote
We show in Section 6 that Bulletproofs greatly improve on this, even for a single range proof. The logarithmic proof size additionally enables the prover to aggregate multiple range proofs, e.g. for multiple outputs, into a single short proof. With Bulletproofs, m range proofs are merely O(log(m)) additional group elements over a single range proof

Which is amazing. So range-proofs account for almost all of the transaction size in monero transactions. You can functionally think of the size of a transaction as scaling linearly with the number of outputs. A typical rage-proof clocks in at 6.2Kb but when you scale that at log(m) it gets crazy. Look at this.

1 output = 1.8Kb
10 outputs = 4.1Kb
100 outputs = 6.4Kb
1000 outputs = 8.7Kb

Of course the 80% space savings of standard transactions is extremely welcome. But this is a whole different dimension of scaling. I wonder how people will be able to take advantage of this?

One thing I can think of is cheap micro transaction services. True there will be a custodial account involved and some risk that the service provider runs off with your monero. But its a custodial account for micro-payments. How much money are you realistically going to keep in there?

Very small transaction fees from exchanges.

Welcome back satoshi dice? I hope not this one.

I wonder what some more of the implications of this are. Or maybe it's not actually as cool as I'm thinking because the load on the network verifying all of these proofs is still real.

That is all assuming the windows version isn't TOO different from the linux version. I have never used the windows wallet.

I've been using it since it came out basically, for large sums. It works fine now, no huge bugs I can see. Actually, I love it. especially if funding physical XMR coins like lealanas. GUI will make this coin the winner in the end IMO. It's still sort of complex given integrated addresses and payment ids etc..  Newbies don't like that stuff. Tongue

I have a question.

I got 2 identical 750ti cards, asus 750ti OC 2GB, same bios version, same identifier number, same memory frequency, same cpu frequency, both not overclocked, exactly the same drivers, fixed 40% fan settings, same xmr-stak-nvidia settings, same GPU-Z info, both have an external power connector to the same psu, one is in slot 3 of my ASRock BTC and the other in slot 6, the screen is on another slot.

The difference: one has Samsung and the other has Hynix memory. The Samsung voltage reports 1156mv@50degC and the Hynix 1200mV@42degC. The Samsung get's stock 243 Hs and the Hynix 220Hs. Samsung reports 55% TDP, Hynix 45% TDP. When overclocking cpu/mem I can get the Samsung up to 295Hs and the Hynix only to 250Hs (and still I did not find a stable OC for the Hynix one). But even at the stock/same frequencies the hashrate difference is like 10%.

Could this be because of the memory type? Or should I check my motherboard/risers/psu?

Different DRAM chips have different access timings, resulting in different latencies when accessing the memory. These latencies are not really exposed in gaming workloads so OEMs can sell cards under the same name but equipped with memory chips from different suppliers.

For mining though, these latencies matter and result in very different hashrates for cards that otherwise seem identical.

Bitcoin, despite being the largest currency in market value and the most popular, has a number of platforms that accept it somewhat limited.
Several important musicians, in addition to many online stores, have come to accept Monero as a form of payment. At the moment, about 45 artists accept payments with the digital currency, among them are: Weezer, Slayer, Dolly Parton, Mariah Carey and Marilyn Manson. According to G-Easy, famous American rapper, Monero is the safest and most privacy-friendly crypto-coin available on the market. In addition, five online stores will also accept payments with Monero as of this week, and good discounts will be provided to those who choose to use the digital currency.

Hello Monerians,

https://moneroForCash.com (MFC) is now free. You can post adverts to buy or sell Monero for free.

As always, MFC:
   
  • Doesn't use JavaScript
  • Doesn't use search company analytics
  • Requires no ID or email to register or use
  • Does not share or sell user information

Additionally, the site is now owned by u/tficharmers. He did the awesome UI redesign a few months ago. I will continue in a support role as needed.

The email for the Contact Us form is still being set up so please bear with us. This does not affect internal messaging for adverts, which is working, as are email alerts if you entered your email (optional) on your Settings page.

We hope you enjoy the site!

2018: The Year of Monero?

By Max Bibeau | USA

While 2017 has undoubtedly been the year of Bitcoin, with prices skyrocketing tens of thousands of dollars, 2018 may have different surprises in store. What really made 2017 important for Bitcoin, is that it became a household name. Instead of being a niche, nerdy technology, it became something that grandparents texted their kids about asking how to get involved.

2018 will absolutely bring more name recognition and price rockets for Bitcoin. However, Bitcoin may not be the biggest winner. Monero may see huge gains, both in price and adoption, as Bitcoin continues to face centralization issues and high fees.

Monero, founded in 2014, prides itself on being the most private, decentralized currency on the market. It is currently listed 8th by market cap, at about 3,800,000,000 USD. Its price is about $250 at the time of writing.

Monero treats privacy as the most important factor for a successful cryptocurrency – and as legislation continues to be proposed to Congress regarding the legality of cryptocurrencies, this could be very important. Monero assures users that they use the “latest and most resilient encryption tools available” in order to ensure all transactions are as anonymous as possible.

With a current supply of 15,449,232 XMR, it’s also incredibly undervalued compared to currencies like Bitcoin. It also has an interesting system regarding the total supply. Instead of capping at 21 million coins like Bitcoin, once 18.3 million XMR are in circulation, Monero will only be created at a rate of about 0.3 XMR per minute. This is meant to ensure miners continue to profit. In this scenario, the first year that the original Monero supply runs out, only about 1% of the existing supply will be introduced into the circulating supply. And every year after that, the percentage will continue to decrease, but never reach zero. This ensures that unlike Bitcoin, Monero miners won’t have to raise fees in order to turn a profit after the maximum supply runs out.

2017 was already a solid year for Monero – going from $13.79 in January to now peaking at $278.66 this year. The graph follows similarly the graph of Bitcoin in its 2014 years.

Even outside of price, Monero has seen increasing adoption this year, and it will likely increase next year as well. Black market dealers have started to catch on to Monero’s anonymity and have begun accepting it often. This is extremely important, as the black market is where Bitcoin got its start as well. It’s only a matter of time before white and grey market shops begin to adapt as well.

So, while 2017 was the year of Bitcoin, it’s likely that 2018 will be known as the year of Monero.
