Monero infected the LA Times website:

https://www.techrepublic.com/article/l-a-times-website-injected-with-monero-cryptocurrency-mining-script/

Quote
The cryptojacking attack appears to have persisted for weeks before being addressed, as it was configured to not max out CPU usage. Hackers injected it through an unsecured AWS S3 bucket.

I wish they'd stop doing this. Pissing off the press is not the way to get crypto adopted.

It's not monero what infected them, it's that coinhive stuff.

Is Monero the most mined by the viruses?
Can this influence is value?
The reason there's speculation that Monero is mined mainly by botnets is because a lot of the hash power comes from unknown pools. Of course *some* of that is probably botnets, but most is probably just regular miners who value their privacy or simply don't list their pool publicly.

And no, it *probably* would not influence value in any way.

I can think of one reason why it might be bullish. Monero is exactly the kind of asset that you might expect someone like a hacker or bot herder to want. Additionally they may not have the sort of sunk cost and overhead that normal miners need to account for. Therefore maybe they aren't dumping as many of the newly mined coins on the market as normal miners do.

You say that, unfortunately anyone who gets something for free doesn't care too much ho much they sell it for.

Unlike real buyers or miners.

More like bounty coins, dumped on launch for shit all.

However I do accept the favourable side effect of increased network power and stability.

Haha yea. That NEM I got for free and dumped would be worth like a million dollars today. Cheesy

I am not sure why 2018 will be the year of privacy coins but I think Monero will increase way too much this year.

Monero was in top 10 coins in the marketcap until last year. Platfrom coins such as Ethereum, Neo, Cardano, Lisk, increased and Monero lost its position. I strongly believe that Monero will take that position again because it has a daily usage. I expecy MoneroV fork will be the accelarator for the increase next month.

Yes, the XMR rise is long overdue. I mean it went high since ICO but there is so much upside potential because it mostly went sideeays the last two years.

Sorry for asking twice, but does anyone remember the US$ OTC broker who accepted monero, I think it may have been cumberlandmining.com, but I'm not sure.

If it was cumberland, anyone have experience using them?

Which ICO would that be? Please point out a Monero ICO for me. Why don't you not spread lies and bullshit. It has in no way shape or form been sideways for 2 years nor was there ever an ICO.

Maybe the guys on IRC can help you on this. I'm pretty sure there is a channel just for that.

Looks like we’ll be moving to a minimum ring size of 7 in the March hard fork. Thoughts, issues, concerns?

Moron.  We're being flooded with bot accounts again, I think.  Or there's something in the water...  Trolls, to some degree I understand.  These stupid posts though...  Shut off the sigs and watch the bitcointalk.org daily post count drop by 80%   Roll Eyes

Both DV Chain and Cumberland will trade Monero. Don't expect much hand holding from either of them, however.

Menero is probably the coin with the best use case in cryptocurrency at the moment. If love to see the talks of a merge with litecoin come to fruition

I joined Cumberland (is that the right term?) but have not traded with them as yet. I also have the forms for DVTrading but have not submitted them. At first glance, it all seems a little intimidating. You connect via Skype to a global trading room and make your order, I guess. At a minimum of $100,000 per trade, it's not something I'm going to do until(if) the price gets higher.

It is not set in stone. Many want to leave minimum at 5 and move default to 7. Some want fixed 7.  There will be dev meetings now weekly so we will hear more about it soon.

The real positive news, though, is that the Ledger code is very near to being merged (though there is still a great deal of testing to be done).

I wonder if we could possibly be on the cusp of the shakeout I keep hoping will happen.



Probably not...  but someday.


I want to say the price action in the alts looks less scammy... but even with a couple valuable projects doing well there's still a lot of shit trying to rise.
