Xmr is the worst performer of the top 20 again today. In fact monero is down from  $144.50 aug 29 2017 to $130 today almost a year later. Not looking good guys!

it shouldnt be in the top 20 anyway.
Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

The great criminal adoption does prove Monero is the most anonymous coin, even more than fiat money: for example, fiat money note does have serial number, Monero coin doesn't have it: see the fungibility property and why it is important.

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/1967/what-is-fungibility-and-why-does-it-matter

Also see my post why ABSENCE of anonymity is HUGE SOCIAL SECURITY VULNERABILITY, not anonymity.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=583449.msg39238948#msg39238948

Criminals and governments are both equal predators if you leave them into free fly. Only balance in the world, where there exist both transparency and anonymity, can preserve it from self-damage.

How closely is the Monero development team pursuing Bulletproofs? I reckon they are on Kovri's development, but is the research group looking at Bulletproofs closely and initial planning for it starting?

Just to say, Bulletproofs and Kovri are developed by two separate teams, so they getting progress simultaneously. According to Monero roadmap, both Bulletproofs and Kovri are scheduled this year, I suppose between fall and xmas.


I think BF is qued to roll out on next update (i think it was ready for the last but the devs correctly held it back for testing) and I'm not sure where korvie is.

Ok. How much smaller will Monero's blocks be after the upgrade to Bullet Proofs? Also, what is the average block size of Monero right now?

I once tried to sync the blockchain but I gave up because it became very slow near the end. I assume that was RingCT making the blocks bigger than it should have been.

Lol, are you serious, mate?
I have never heard such news. Could you give me links to the original source of the information on Bitcoin and Monero, please.

About 1/10th.

u should try again, there have been some improvements, and there will be more soon. Also, get an SSD. It can sync in 5 hours.

odd request.

so I have been granted access to 2 x Phi cards that are not being used, but unfortunately I am an expert in linux or coding and can't figure out a way to use them.

Those Phi are not part of a slurm queue. I know their names but can't us them the way I use other XEON core on slurm queue.

any recommendations?

thanks

It seems that Monero and most of top altcoins have found their strong supports.
It's time to bounce back.
Give them time, they will bounce back soon.

Recently, around the coin goes a lot of rumors, and not always very good. What do you say good people whether now to buy coins or still wait a little? Such a coin still really want to keep in his portfolio.

Monero is actually much better for autonomy in robots though assuming they want an independent means of sustaining themselves. They wouldn't have to depend on a mining pool and could mine it themselves or they could find better ways to get others to mine. Like as a means of supporting the AI science.

I always assumed it was like 15%.

The total hashrate above represents roughly 2% of the global hashing power mining the Monero network. The total hashrate of roughly 19MH/s would result in approximately $30,443 per day based on today’s current exchange rates and network difficulty.

  Mining MONERO XMR

  Mining MONERO XMR

Easiest way to get a MONERO XMR wallet address for mining is go to
https://altex.exchange/markets&pair=BTC_XMR&ref=1048


this will help to avoid the need to generate MONERO XMR address with GUI wallet or CLI wallet
and avoid downloading of the entire blockchain (millions of blocks which could take up to a few days!)


Check out the MONERO XMR Price at
https://altex.exchange/markets&pair=BTC_XMR&ref=1048





Cool, much easier than getting stuck with the wallet.

How closely is the Monero development team pursuing Bulletproofs? I reckon they are on Kovri's development, but is the research group looking at Bulletproofs closely and initial planning for it starting?

Just to say, Bulletproofs and Kovri are developed by two separate teams, so they getting progress simultaneously. According to Monero roadmap, both Bulletproofs and Kovri are scheduled this year, I suppose between fall and xmas.


I think BF is qued to roll out on next update (i think it was ready for the last but the devs correctly held it back for testing) and I'm not sure where korvie is.

Ok. How much smaller will Monero's blocks be after the upgrade to Bullet Proofs? Also, what is the average block size of Monero right now?

About 1/10th.

average blocksize: currently 140 kb or so :https://www.moneroblocks.info/stats/block-medians

I once tried to sync the blockchain but I gave up because it became very slow near the end. I assume that was RingCT making the blocks bigger than it should have been.

u should try again, there have been some improvements, and there will be more soon. Also, get an SSD. It can sync in 5 hours.

It is surprising that the blocks are not that big. I was expecting larger than average bitcoin blocks because of RingCT. But why does syncing slow down very much starting at a definite height? It appeared like Monero had 3mb blocks hehehe.

For one thing Bitcoin has 1 MB block every 10 min, while Monero has 140 kB block every 2 min let's say, or 0.7 MB of blocks every 10 min. Also, block verification is much slower for Monero than Bitcoin (Cryptonight v. SHA256).
