I still think that Monero could go on to create a new ATH in fiat terms, and possibly even in BTC terms.

It may take 3-5 years, but it's still on the cards imo.

I'm holding my XMR for the long term.

I think crazy times may return before that. Would not be surprised to see new fomomania in next 2 years.

Let's wait until march 2020  Grin Wink

Can't go wrong holding any crypto with decent volume for the next bull run but I think holding ethereum is a much better move from current prices.

Longer list with all top pure PoW coins. Their forks are identical so i excluded those.

Gold 1.5-1.8%
Monero 3.666%
Bitcoin 3.668%
Litecoin 4.16%
Doge 4.34%
ZCash 35.83%
Grin 158.63%


and similar was with value of coins that gets mined daily.

Doge 14.4m = $37.7k
Monero 1725 = $130k
Grin 86400 = 185k
ZCash 7200 = $334k
Litecoin 7200 = $496k
Bitcoin 1800 = $19.16m

Wondering why you didn't mention Eth? Its still all pow since pos hasn't been released yet.

Hey guys, just made some new cold storage notes that are a non-for-profit effort to raise money for the dev fund/CCS proposal.

I skipped all coins that were not fully mined. Most of ETH coins was created in ICO. 72 millions ETH was just printed and sold for tiny bit of BTC. That is 2/3 and that makes ETH a security and organizers will have to answer the law.

ZCash founders reward is economically equivalent to a premine, but I guess it is only 10-20%, not 70%

At a guess I'd say not much otherwise the price would have held steady.
Did they all go underground?

It's better that that is not an eco system that is relied upon as it just gives ammo to the haters.

Someone made good research like a year or two ago it was not hard to find it back then with google, but right now I cant find it. But is probably outdated anyway.   As I know a lot of dark markets was taken down this year and they had a lot DDOS attacks. Of course past teach us that new will always pop up and be even stronger.   Dark markets will never have much of an impact on Monero transactions. Biggest impact will have regular people trying to keep their wealth secure.

Not that I use them (I actually really don't (like that would be something anyone would believe (oh God, I am getting lost inside a parenthetical alternative universe)))...

But I keep an eye on dark net markets mostly out of curiosity.  Wall Street Market was shut down this summer, but XMR was a preferred crypto there and most vendors took it.  Some even had special discounts for XMR users.  I saw someone who ran a cannabis gummy XMR sale regularly.

Currently the biggest DNMs are probably: Empire, Tochka, Berlusconi, Nightmare, and Cryptonia.

All of those take XMR.

I am a libertarian.  But to be honest I do not think this use of XMR is what makes it important.  I just think it is a natural side effect of it being one of the truly useful digital currencies.  I am also one of the probably few old school crypto people who does NOT see Ross Ulbricht as a hero.  I see him as a criminal (but his sentence is ridiculous).  Almost all other projects are garbage at worst and well-meaning testnets at best.  I am looking forward to XMR continuing to shed it's darknet reputation and being seen for the privacy preserving tour de force that it is.

That said, there is no doubt it is THE trusted privacy currency on the dark web.  People probably still use Bitcoin more and are fools for it IMHO.

Enough personal and character attacks having nothing to do with Monero Speculation.

I'm not going to bother deleting the replies for now (but forum mods still might). If it continues I'll start hitting the delete button.

Since most of you guys who hang out in the Monero ANN thread hang out here too, I'll just post this here in speculation.  Auction for serials 1-10 and donations/winning bids can be made to current/future CCS proposals or to the general dev fund.

Hope to see some of y'all there. Smiley

Well my own method would be to create accounts at DNMs and do the due diligence.  I am not sure who, aside from 3 letter agencies, is compiling stats for DNMs. But one should only do this with the clear understanding that one is wading into questionable waters.

To be honest I do not think looking at things on a DNM is illegal where I live, but I am not a lawyer in my country not to mention the other ones in the world. I would however guess that ordering many things from a DNM *is* illegal in most jurisdictions.

I believe there are also reddit forums concerning these things.  One could do DD there too.

Monero Defcon27 Village - Foundations of Digital Money (Daniel Kim, PhD, MBA)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-FkL5eXam8


I posted this a month ago with all other talks that day of Monero Defcon27 Village. If I remember right slides did not work back then. So here is full presentation. For those that hang in this thread for years is nothing new, but fro those join crypto in recent years and new to Monero is a must see. Also a really good source to convince a skeptic why crypto and specially Monero is important.

Pages: « 1 ... 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028 2029 2030 2031 2032 2033 2034 2035 2036 2037 2038 2039 2040 2041 2042 2043 2044 2045 2046 2047 2048 2049 2050 2051 2052 2053 2054 2055 2056 2057 2058 2059 2060 2061 [2062] 2063 2064 2065 2066 2067 2068 2069 2070 2071 2072 2073 2074 2075 2076 2077 2078 2079 2080 2081 2082 2083 2084 2085 2086 2087 2088 2089 2090 2091 2092 2093 2094 2095 2096 2097 2098 2099 2100 2101 2102 2103 2104 2105 2106 2107 2108 2109 2110 2111 2112 ... 2144 »
