^  Interesting...  How large are the 'XMR only' DNM's compared to the rest in that space.  I remember AB used to be huge and ruled over all the other DNM's.

Pretty sure WHM is the biggest one.

Hey Folks, Do you believe XRP hype is over or not? Any possibilities this could accelerate over the upcoming days or recent delisting news could it down more? It's relatively very cheap now, if any chance left then anyone can grab its low now.

If I were you I would mortgage the house for ripple.

Not much price action due to this development... DNMs are old news.  But I imagine we should see usage continue to increase:

Gotcha.  Yeah, my thought was alphabay takes Monero we get the price rise of the decade.  Monero takes over the DNM scene little by little?  Crickets.  But DNMs are old news and as you are saying regular people know about them.

So what I see is one of the purest strongest use cases for a digital currency building, but fairly quietly.  We could say this is already priced into Monero at the speculative level... but I do not think that is 100% true.

Also, I believe Monero may end up discounted in some ways because of this (though I think the positive firmly outweigh the negatives from a speculative standpoint).  Monero is doing Bitcoin a huge favor by taking the illegitimate use stigma away for itself.

I am a firm believer that financial privacy is good for ALL, not just people breaking the law, lol.  But that use case is a very valid test for sure.

Interesting times, to say the least.

(Hello FBI people.  I do not advocate people take part in DNMs or drug trade etc. I believe Monero is an important project because of it's connection to the notion of free speech and privacy.)

It wouldn't only increase, I think it could dominate the whole DNM space.  These guys are catching on faster than the bros of crypto.  And I hope it stays that way til I get a nice stack.  Grin  

Edit:  And I think the reason why there's a lack of price action is cos WHM didn't play it like AB did.

The USD chart looks decent.  The BTC chart is disastrous.  This is alt coin land currently.



It is beginning to look like this Bitcoin Epoch has a chance of being known as the BTC ALT decoupling.  Overall I think this is a VERY good thing.

But the market is not sophisticated enough to see the value prop of the few alts that have one (I honestly only know of one).  I also wonder if the US government (or others) do not have other virtual currencies in their sites.  They probably could not destroy ETH (although I am not sure) but ZEC for example it RIPE for an attack by SEC etc.  Centralized... taking a cut, etc.  They are not as bad as Ripple was, but close.

But at the same time, XMR's use case is strengthening before our eyes.  And it is as decentralized as possible in the post-bitcoin crypto world.

Personally if I was not satisfied with my positions I would see this is an amazing buying opportunity for XMR.  The hidden risk/reward here is compelling.

The BTC chart is a tad disappointing, I really thought we'd bottomed at 0063.

0055 is a bit 'ouch', but the fundamentals are still there, it's just it's all about Bitcoin right now.  I think, like others perhaps, that it's a great buy right now, but I can't bear to spend BTC just now to take advantage.

As I said previously I think we need to wait until spring to see a decent run again. There were good signs of life in October, we will see them again in Feb/March.  As always at times like these, HODL.

As I said previously I think we need to wait until spring to see a decent run again. There were good signs of life in October, we will see them again in Feb/March.  As always at times like these, HODL.

It is also about Greyscale, XRP and XLM pulling down the alts really hard too.  It's beautiful from a maximalist perspective. 

But as you said the fundamentals are there.  We just saw one of the most meaningful things happen for Monero on a fundamental level, and it's crickets all the way around.  Even we are yawning about it.  But Monero is the only payment source at the worlds largest online crypto only marketplace that is not an exchange/casino.  They ONLY ACCEPT MONERO.  They have a customer base of a half million, and a third of them are "active" (whatever that means).



I mean... this will not ultra-significantly change the usage levels, since it was virtually Monero only already, but this is really a bit of sleeper news.  It is a significant shift in the whole virtual currency realm.

Have you guys noticed?  Monero has the odd penchant for having some really bullish news come during overall market downturns. I kind of wonder if that crazy spike we saw a few weeks ago was insiders thinking they were gonna get in before the pump?  I dunno, maybe I am overestimating the impact...  Thoughts?
