Monero (XMR)

What is Monero?

Monero is what is known as a privacy cryptocurrency because transactions with it are untraceable to any specific person or entity. It was designed for privacy as well as scalability, and in April 2018 was forked in order to keep it ASIC resistant.

It is very popular with home miners due to the privacy it affords and the fact that it has committed to remain ASIC resistant, meaning it remains easily mineable using just the CPU and GPU in any computer.
