tick tock on the block
lets see how low monero will drop
losing your cash watching this crash
stick with bitcoin with with shitnero
Tick tock it's Monero o'clock.
I hope it drop so I can shop.
I haven't lost a single Monero yet, do you wanna bet?
Stick with what you want, but later it may haunt.
I don't care what you think, everyone will forget you in a blink.
Have a nice day, now go your own way.

As time passes by, I am more convinced this market won't appreciate the true value of Monero until something really *bad* happens in Bitcoin with regards on privacy, chain analysis, etc. This will happen indeed, question is if it will be too late for Monero to get the deserved attention.

Wish I had another for you, it is a sad state of affairs that sheeple do not have the ability to see what is coming and prepare for it. they just throw their hands in the air screaming when it does hit, it reminds me of cattle being stalked by wolfs, they stand there without a care and then run for their lives watching the weakest get picked off and then they do it all over again never learning a thing from it.

Or maybe volume was not low enough.  Monero dominance still hanging at 0.48%. Plenty space for growth left.


And, what we had been waiting for 4 years finally happened few hours ago. Monero yearly emission inflation went under Bitcoins.

Bitcoin 3.668%
Monero 3.666%

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.

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.

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

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%

Does anybody know where we can check the data on Monero and how much it's being used by DNM's atm?  Just wondering if it's trending higher...

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.

Does anybody know where we can check the data on Monero and how much it's being used by DNM's atm?  Just wondering if it's trending higher...

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.

They should put out a My Little Pony Monero themed wallet for the kids to learn on.
