So the thoughts of 2014 is over! 2018 is gonna be yyyuuuuge.


I dont think the possibility of 2018 to be new 2014 is over. I personally would love for Bitcoin to hang around $10k and Monero around $300 for next half year. Just so all those newcomers that joined crypto to make fast profit sell. and All other newcomers that joined crypto to learn something have time to actually learn something. And that they have some time to accumulate something before next leg up.

But this are just my hopes, nothing to do with reality.

Seems like a good time to accumulate. How many others are accumulating?
I'm accumulating too but don't have that much to spend unfortunately.

Yep I'm back in the market and it feels good. Taking some profits from another successful venture and plowing them into monero.

If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?

Doesn't sound like Bullet Proofs are coming in the next hardfork, having to wait until what.. September? Basically a life time in crypto.

With how much transaction sizes and fees being the hot topic in crypto currencys this is pretty big blow to Monero in what was looking to be a pretty positive Q1-Q2 for it.

I think that monero is one of the better projects available in the market right now and i see alot of potential in monero. It is the world's first privacy coin whose transactions are 100 percent secure and untraceable. It has one of the strongest development teams which is very capable and promising. It is gaining popularity and if it continues to grow at the same rate, you can easily expect it's price to be above 1000$ by end of this year for sure.

I don't suppose there is any law which stops us having a release if we needed it.

We have never been a coin to release half finished shit and go for the marketing over substance.

when it is well tested and ready it can be baked in.


There are other places to look if you want pumps.

Monero is in the news again for illegal mining by hackers:

https://betanews.com/2018/01/28/monero-mining-youtube-ads/

Quote
The clandestine mining of cryptocurrency is something that we have seen in various forms over the last year or so, in website code and Android apps. A new discovery by security firm Trend Micro shows that hackers have found a way to inject Coinhive mining code into ads that appear on YouTube.

The crypto-jacking technique means that hackers have been able to profit by using other people's CPU time to mine the Monero cryptocurrency while they watch videos. Trend Micro reports that there has been a huge increase in Coinhive web miner detections in recent days, with hackers abusing Google's DoubleClick to distribute the code through big sites including YouTube.

Trend Micro says that over the last week there has been a threefold increase in the JS_COINHIVE.GN Coinhive miner. The company says that "advertisements found on high-traffic sites not only used Coinhive [...] but also a separate web miner that connects to a private pool," and explains that it shared its finding with Google.

Writing about its finding in a blog post, Trend Micro explains:

    We detected an almost 285 percent increase in the number of Coinhive miners on January 24. We started seeing an increase in traffic to five malicious domains on January 18. After closely examining the network traffic, we discovered that the traffic came from DoubleClick advertisements.

    An analysis of the malvertisement-riddled pages revealed two different web miner scripts embedded and a script that displays the advertisement from DoubleClick. The affected webpage will show the legitimate advertisement while the two web miners covertly perform their task. We speculate that the attackers' use of these advertisements on legitimate websites is a ploy to target a larger number of users, in comparison to only that of compromised devices. The traffic involving the abovementioned cryptocurrency miners has since decreased after January 24.

The impact of the crypto-miners was far from insignificant -- they had been configured to use 80 percent of CPU resources for mining purposes. By using an obfuscated private miner, the hackers were also able to bypass Coinhive's commission fee.

Half year ago no one even know bulletproofs exist. It was just speed and good organization of research lab and Monero developers that was possible to add (not full version) of bulletproofs in March hardfork. Reason why it was not added was academical review. Something that most of other coins dont even bother doing it. Now bulletproof will be added without any pressure since will be plenty of time to do them perfectly.  Also March hardfork will be done with less pressure and on time what is important for developers that build infrastructure around Monero (like Ledher HW).

Monero transactions are not small, but by itself that is not a problem. They add to blockhain size. Yes that is not good, but in half year time blockchain size will not have a huge change because of no bulletproofs. Fees are currently not a problem. They would be if price suddenly goes up by 10 or more.  There are talks to try to reduce fees in March a bit.

One of good news of last devs meeting was that updated white paper will be available next month. I could be wrong but I think Monero actually never had one. It always related to the cryptonote white paper.  And white papers are definitely in lately with all craze about ICOs. As many pages of whitepaper you have that many millions you will gather. Tongue

The market needs more attention to drive monero's price up to $1000 this year. We didn't see thid much demand yet. The market is like very stable now.

Some cloud mining sites are doing XMR mining. I think XMR is a robust project. I have 10 projects on the crypto market, so I include XMR. It may arrive at the end of 2018 at the level of $ 1000.

No, there is an important price effect: The fundamentals of demand are rising, and hence the elastic support floor is stiffening and rising.  When it intersects the clearing price, that is when price will rise as a result. If your vision only extends to the end of your nose, I think that qualifies as being effectively blind.

Towards end of 2016 and early 2017, Monero was the quickest jump interm price. Is since becoming on the second row after BTC, LTC, DASH pump. This year we saw it;s ,ovement in sync with other privacy cryptos such as Zcash, PXVG, XVG. $1,000 certainly possible in 2018. I see it happen even before June, but it is also possible to drop back to the current level there after. I loved to see XMR back in top 10 again. Wink
