Monero (XMR) Outperforms Bitcoin Amid Turbulent Crypto Sector Prices

Monero (XMR) Outperforms Bitcoin Amid Turbulent Crypto Sector Prices

The Privacy-Oriented Altcoin Recorded Bigger Price Gains Than Bitcoin, Despite Its Relatively Low Market Capitalization
The crypto sector made a rebound over the course of this week, with major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) recording 20% increases in the past seven days.
Bitcoin soared 15% in just 24 hours, despite the fact that the stock market continues to fall. However, Monero has managed to outperform Bitcoin by gains day by day last week.
Monero, a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency, is currently at 11th place in CoinMarketCap’s rankings. Despite the low market share of little under $1 billion, Monero has been making better gains than Bitcoin since last week. Monero is also dubbed as a better privacy option than the world’s best cryptocurrency.
The reason behind Monero’s price peak was at first unclear, but crypto analysts discovered the possible reason behind Monero’s price peak. The Monero development team recently released an update to XMR’s Carbon Chameleon software protocol. The software aims to improve transaction execution and the crypto workings with Tor and I2P.
Also, Monero, as well as other privacy-oriented cryptos, gained increased interest from high-profile investors and tech giants. For example, the CEO of Coinbase Brian Armstrong stated his confidence about the creation of privacy-oriented coins and tokens in a blog post in January 2020.
“My opinion is that privacy will be integrated into one of the biggest networks to date in the 2020s. Just like the HTTPS protocol, the implementation of privacy tokens will receive mass adoption across the tech sector in the next decade,” Armstrong added.
Monero also saw support from John McAfee, a key figure in the field of antivirus protection. McAfee gave Monero, as well as Ethereum, praises for being innovative, stating that “Despite Bitcoin being the first blockchain network to go mainstream, its underlying technology is ancient.”
“Most of the newest blockchain projects offer increased privacy options, smart contract usability, as well as distributed applications.”, McAfee concluded.
Marketwise, most of the top-50 cryptocurrencies are performing well, wiping out the damage inflicted from the recent market drops. Bitcoin (BTC) is up to nine percent, currently trading at $6,913.61. Ethereum recorded a double-digit price increase, jumping 10,36% over the week. As of press time, Ethereum trades at $144.44.
IOTA, Cardano, Chainlink, and Bitcoin Cash are among the top performers, all with double-digit price increases, mainly in the 10-12% region weekly. NEM and MKR are trading in the red, with a 2-3% price decrease over the course of the week.

Blocknet FAQ

Community-Produced FAQ document
What Is Blocknet?
The Blocknet is a general-purpose infrastructure for inter-blockchain services. It is designed to enable the emerging “token ecosystem.” The first product build on this infrastructure is a decentralized exchange.
What Does It Do?
The Blocknet enables inter-blockchain services, like decentralized exchange, monetised API consumption, and p2p digital service delivery. These are core enabling features of inter-chain dapps.
How Does It Work?
To support inter-blockchain services, the Blocknet has three core components, which work together to provide three core services.
The core components are:
The core services are:
What Is a Decentralized Exchange?
A decentralized exchange is a service enabling counterparties (which may be people or machines) to exchange one currency or token for another, without the involvement of any third party as an intermediary.
The term “decentralized” denotes matters of control rather than the distribution of processing; the ideal of a decentralized solution is for the parties to a given interaction to be self-sovereign actors, in the sense that no third party is required to act on their behalf in order for the interaction to take place.
How Does a Decentralized Exchange Work?
Exchanges have four core functions:
Hence, in order to be a decentralized exchange, each of these core functions must be decentralized.
The Blocknet decentralizes them in the following ways:
Why Is a Decentralized Exchange a Key Enabler Of the Token Ecosystem?
Decentralized exchange makes blockchain services intrinsically monetizable, removing the friction and high costs of traditional payment networks that have prevented the monetisation of the bulk of the API ecosystem.
Due to the decentralized exchange, consumers of a service may pay in their native token even if the service consumes a different token. In a world in which (a) there are already thousands of blockchains, and (b) blockchains bloat inexorably, and so it is advisable not to support many services per blockchain, monetising inter-chain services is both an operational necessity and an ecosystem-enabling service.
What Coins Does the Decentralized Exchange Support?
The Blocknet was designed to maximise interoperability, and so most blockchain tokens may be integrated with no coding required.
The current integration requirements are:
As a result, the Blocknet supports the majority of cryptocurrencies in existence, and no permission from anyone is required for these to be traded on the exchange.
The current list is:
BAY BTC BLK BLOCK DASH DGB DOGE DYN PIVX LTC MUE NMC SYS VTC VIA BRK BRX ETH NLG QTUM DCR POT PPC XVG MONA FAIR NAV
How Fast Is the Decentralized Exchange?
Instant.
However, note that once you have completed a trade and received coins, you will be dependent on their blockchain’s accepted confirmation time before your coins will be spendable again.
Note: A future enhancement to the decentralized exchange may include a filter on the order book to enable traders to trade coins with less than the number of confirmations conventionally agreed upon as “safe.” This incurs a degree of risk for the benefit of supporting trading styles that require rapidly entering and exiting a position, such as scalping.
How Private Is the Decentralized Exchanged?
Because decentralized exchanges do not require traders to submit KYC information or divulge anything else about themselves to a third party, traders enjoy a naturally high degree of privacy.
However, for most wallets, aspects of transactions are linkable to IP addresses, so in order to obfuscate that, one might use TOR or I2P. The Blocknet’s DHT network overlay does not use IP addresses, however.
Combined with any privacy-centric coin, a decentralized exchange run over IP-obfuscating tech is a near-perfect mixing solution. For example, one may trade some coins for Zcash, sends them to a different address, and then trade back again.
What Are the Possible Applications Of the xBridge Protocol Other Than a Decentralized Exchange?
The Blocknet is designed as infrastructure for the emerging token ecosystem. Any service or orchestrated sequence of microservices provided by dapps may be delivered over the Blocknet's infrastructure.
Using decentralized exchange, these services are intrinsically monetizable, removing the friction and high costs of traditional payment networks - friction which has prevented the monetisation of the bulk of the API ecosystem.
Due to the decentralized exchange, consumers of a service may pay in their native token even if the service consumes a different token.
What Are the Benefits Of Running a Node? How Many Blocks Do I Need To Run One?
There are two types of node: a "service node" and a “trader node”. Service nodes do not handle or control any trader's coins. Their function is to collect and distribute trade fees. Typically a service node operator will run multiple full node wallets of whichever coins (s)he wants to support, in order to garner as many trade fees as possible. Trader nodes enable one to trade on the decentralized exchange.The amount of BLOCK currently needed to run a service node is 5,000 BLOCK. To use the exchange you will not need any BLOCK.
Will There Be Fees For Buying/Trading On the Blocknet Exchange?
Yes, there are fees, though they are significantly lower that centralised exchanges.
The fee structure is as follows:
Will A User Need BLOCK To Participate On An Exchange?
No, to use the exchange you will NOT need any BLOCK. Only the service node operators will need BLOCK in order to collect and distribute trade fees. Additionally, the service nodes do not handle or control and trader’s coins. The sole purpose of the service node is to only collect and distribute trade fees.
Staking
Staking and fees on the Blocknet are bundled together in a 70/30 split between nodes and stakers. This is a combination of POS staking and network trading fees. Staking is estimated to be between 9% - 14% in the first year. Nodes will receive 70% and stakers will receive 30%. This means that if you do not have enough Block to run a node, you will STILL get part of the node fees, and if you run a node, you will also get part of the stakes as well. Your wallet must be unlocked to actively stake and receive rewards. There will be 525,600 new blocks created annually (at 1 block per minute) with decreasing inflation each subsequent year.

Anoncoin - A road to success or one to nowhere?

Hello redditers,
U still selling?
We got a update from the Heads of Anoncoin https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=227287.msg9549726#msg9549726
For me it is a little sobering since I thought Gnosis was very close with the codebase 0.9.3 - last week he said in a comment here on reddit "maybe a week".
Be this as it may, it seems we get the update sooner or later and we will be able to trade on Cryptsy again (btw. Cex.io is the place to go now for ANC). What concerns me is that now the developers seem to struggle to get this new codebase done, that they won't concentrate on Zerocoin at all.
I estimate maybe next year by April or something - who knows - but until then I'm sure Zerocash will be released ... Even though Anoncoin has a somewhat better approach, since it won't need trusted nodes, Zerocash will have such a huge media impact that it will dwarf all other Coins.
I really like Anoncoin to succeed here, though without a codebase 0.9.3, without the difficulty solution it's not possible. In addition the programmers lost a great part of their reputation due to the missing dates and the ultra old codebase.
Is Anoncoin on a road to success, with a update coming soon and Gnosis (after the update) working on Zerocoin? Or did Anoncoin already lost track and the developers don't care about its success? Hm...
Let me know what You think about Anoncoin

The Argument Against Proof of Stake (PoS) by Michael Stollaire

The Argument Against Proof of Stake (PoS) by Michael Stollaire
Recently, I’ve been interviewed several times, and it’s an eventuality that the topic of how Verge stacks up against the competition in the privacy coin space comes up. The first thing I consider is the method of mining. In short, if Proof of Stake (PoS) is leveraged, that’s it for me. That asset is compromised, and most of Verge’s competition is PoS. I actually had a representative from one of Verge’s competitors tell me that PoS “is the future.” My response was that I was afraid of what the future held. Here’s why I consider PoS the death toll for a cryptocurrency: PoS uses a form of Dash’s Master Node concept. Someone has to have One-thousand (1,000) Dash coins that they “stake” by essentially putting it into a deposit box of sorts. If at any time, the deposit box does not have 1,000 coins in it, the Dash system detects this fact, and your Master Node is disabled. Well, this is a good situation if you were one of the first people involved in any PoS cryptocurrency, when coins cost $1 or less at the time or you were one of the original miners. However, what if you were not an ultra-early adopter? You are in deep trouble. Keeping with our Dash example, the current price for Dash is just over $300, so let’s use that round number in our calculations. One-thousand (1,000) Dash coins at $300 each would be $300,000. That’s right. You can have your very own Dash Master Node for the bargain price of… wait a second. The average price of a house in America is cheaper. Who can afford that?! I’ll tell you who. The one-percenters and the financial establishments that cryptocurrency was invented in January 2009 to thwart. That’s right, just like there are activist investors that buy up 10-25% of a public company’s stock so they can leverage their… you guessed it… STAKE… against the company itself, in order to control who the CEO is, who sits on the board of directors, and the general direction and activities of a company, the rich of the world can basically perform a hostile takeover of any cryptocurrency that leverages PoS for mining purposes. Here’s an example, Warren Buffett, who’s current net worth is $80.3 Billion. There are currently 4,719 Dash Master Nodes online. As we said before the approximate cost of a Dash Master Node is $300,000 each, so let’s have some math fun, shall we? $300,000 X 5,000 = $1.5 Billion. So, Mr. Buffett wakes up one day, and decides that cryptocurrency should play a minor part in his investment portfolio, and he plunks down $1.5 Billion to take over Dash. Since Verge’s other competitors that leverage PoS for mining cost significantly less, it’s that much easier for Mr. Buffett… or any wealthy individual to compromise any of them. Therefore, I would never consider investing in a PoS coin. So, we are now down to three (3) Proof of Work (PoW) assets: Verge, Monero and Bitcoin. Bitcoin is out, because of two reasons. Some might say that the hostile takeover of Bitcoin already took place, as China controls so much of Bitcoin’s PoW hash rate. Please reference the pie chart below. Bitmain’s AntPool is 22.3% of Bitcoin’s total hash rate by itself.
https://blockchain.info/pools
Also, since Bitcoin is “sort of anonymous” it cannot stack up against Verge, which is a true privacy cryptocurrency that has features now - and in the future… - that will make it the premier asset in this area. Again, in my opinion. Verge also leverages several different PoW mining algorithms to make sure that the chances are slim to none that a hash rate monopoly can take place. Transactions are faster by far, and transactions per second are twenty (20) times that of Bitcoin. The mobility feature of Verge are also secure and private, and… well, that’s it. I don’t really have to go any further, because we can logically deduce that Verge is superior to Bitcoin in several ways. Therefore, only Monero, ZCash and Verge are left. There has been several deep-dives done on Monero, as far as due diligence of their privacy and security features are concerned that bring up valid points about the lack of Monero’s privacy: http://hackingdistributed.com/2017/04/19/monero-linkability After the implementation of the much-anticipated Wraith Protocol™, most would agree that Verge is on equal-footing with Monero, regarding privacy and security features, if not slightly better, and Verge is just getting started. There’s much more to come in the near and distant future, I assure you. However, back to Monero. Another key element of an asset is whether or not it is an inflationary or deflationary currency. Bitcoin has a limit on the sheer number of coins minted, for instance, and so does Verge. They are deflationary currencies that will hold or increase their value over time. But, Monero (and PIVX) has an unlimited supply, just like fiat currencies such as the US Dollar. That means as time goes on, more and more Monero coins will be minted and its value will decrease. Right there, it’s game over, at least for me. However, I do have to point out that Verge has Toi2P “baked in” and this means that both sender and receiver IP addresses are obfuscated. Does Monero do that? No, it does not. On to ZCash. Well, it’s got its fair share of issues. Over six-hundred, it seems: https://github.com/zcash/zcash/issues However, the main issue for me is that they basically had an ICO, just like NAV and PIVX, etc. If you don’t have an issue with 20% or more of the entire supply of an asset going to line the pockets of its initial investors and team, you certainly should. Here’s how one blogger on Steemit put it: “The ZCash team decided to launch ZCash as an altcoin so they were able to fund the development: ZCash has a US-based company behind it and will tax 20% of the mining revenue during the first 4 years to pay off private investors. If ZCash were to succeed, the private investors will benefit greatly from the launch of this cryptocurrency. Although I don't like ICO's, a public coinsale (a form of crowdfunding) would have been a more fair and open way to fund development than seeking money from private investors.” Also… “Another problem with ZCash is the fact that it's brand new cryptography. Nobody can really guarantee that there aren't some bugs in the system that will make it possible to deanonymize transactions or create coins out of thin air. What's more, if coins are being created, it will not even be detectable because, unlike Monero (and Verge), you can't verify the total amount of coins in the ZCash blockchain.” Verge had no pre-mine. Verge had no ICO. The entire Verge Team is composed of pro-bono volunteers, including yours truly. That’s right. We work for free. Why? Because that’s how much sheer belief we have in Verge and we don’t have a “golden parachute” end game like those involved with ZCash. Does ZCash have a multi-algorithm mining methodology to prevent the platform being controlled by a few centralized GPU-based mining farms? No it does not. They can be taken over, just like Bitcoin. Now, there is only one coin standing: Verge. by Michael Stollaire October 31, 2017

Speaking of tools and products that disintermediate the gangster control grid ghouls Apple and Google? Introducing Open Hardware Fairphone 2. Warning: expensive because no contract subsidy (590.68 usd)

Fairphone has an android-based OS called Fairphone 2 OS. It is an android base that was reworked by their Fairphone team, which cuts out all the google stuff and made fairphone based mods.
There is an FDROID alternative app store
There is a SIP Caller app, which lets you basically do VOIP using a sip number. In other words, it lets you use your phone to make voip calls to anywhere in the world through a ultralowcost sip gateway. And sipdroid
Since this is a custom linux make by hardware specialists, chances are this SIP program is 10x better in performance than any stock google android handset (they were pretty bad in terms of reliability because it's VOIP over WIFI you need ultrareliable wifi (oxymoron)). SIP apps were basically banned by apple from their apple store eventually because it messes with their system of control and their providers didn't like it (AT*T Verison)
There is a bitcoin wallet app, VLC (a must--you only need this one media player), firefox, icecatmobile (tiny no bs optimized firefox), TPB proxy (to access tpb), wifi camera (internet webcam app), vector team chat, pw manager, Orbot (toonion), orweb (toonion), 4chan image board browser, websms to send free sms, gps and mapping apps, I2P, OTP authenticator, openkeychain, hashit, gnuprivacyguard, pgpclipper, "snoopsnitch"--wifi security threat heuristics, Voodoo CarrierIQ Detector -- if you have carrierIQ, time to ask fairphone for a refund.
Lots more good apps on their FDROID (f droid, as in fsociety) store.

The original post's content was as follows:
Hi all! I'm a relatively new member to reddit (long time lurker) so let me know if I'm doing this properly. Over the past few months a few friends and I have been holding weekly cryptocurrency research and investment meetings where we discuss a few coins that we researched over the previous week. It was brought up that it may be a good idea to post this research online to get feedback and possibly help others. What we tend to look for is what makes a coin unique compared to its competitors, how much interest is surronding it, etc... Of course we're not professionals and all investments come with risk so please take our research with a grain of salt. If you guys like this I can post our research on a regular basis, let me know what you guys think!

Week 7 (9/17/17): XVG, NLG, DOGE, BURST, DAR, AUR

XVG

Market cap: ($76,389,607) Supply: 13,409,472,280 XVG/16,555,000,000 XVG Price: $0.005697(Sun Sep 24 2017 11:46:26 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)) URL: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/verge/ Verge * Privacy focused coin * Integrates with tor, i2p, telegram and discord to issue private transactions * Large community/large slack/FB, etc * Not pre-mined so development relies on donations * Has a good amount of software already developed * Short white paper * Will add smart contracts * Fast (30s) block time * Definitely room for growth
Privacy coins are certainly an interesting subject, and with the open nature of blockchain technologies privacy is becoming more and more important. Monero is an important competitor here as they are the current leader in this space. Verge looks like a great coin but we classify it as a higher risk investment due to the fact that there are already larger privacy focused coins out there.

Verdict: Higher risk investment

NLG

Market cap: ($38,785,868) Supply: 353,257,145 NLG Price: $0.109795(Sun Sep 24 2017 11:46:26 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)) URL: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/gulden/ Gulden * An ordinary monetary transaction centric cryptocurrency, using Nocks in order to piggyback into where bitcoin is accepted * Tiny community * Uses a different version of Proof of Work which combines Proof of Work and Proof of Stake * Long whitepaper which just seems to redefine bitcoin with a different consensus algorithm
Unfortunately there wasn't much information about this coin available. The whitepaper more of less redefined bitcoin except it uses its new version of proof of work, which isn't a very novel method. There doesn't seem to be much going for this coin so we decided to pass.

Verdict: Pass

DOGE

Market cap: ($99,484,785) Supply: 111,214,090,643 DOGE Price: $0.000895(Sun Sep 24 2017 11:46:26 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)) URL: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/dogecoin/ Dogecoin * A meme coin * Giant community * The first coin market hosted on Bittrex * More similar to Litecoin than Bitcoin * Mostly used as a way to tip people online * Fairly mature at this point
This was kinda put into our research pile as a joke, it's a meme coin with little going for it other than its prevalence for internet tipping so we decided to pass.

Verdict: Pass

BURST

Market cap: ($14,248,033) Supply: 1,800,339,818 BURST Price: $0.007914(Sun Sep 24 2017 11:46:26 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)) URL: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/burst/ Burst * Not a storage coin, instead a regular monetary transaction cryptocurrency * Uses Proof of Capacity as a mining method, uses hdd space as a consensus algorithm * 4 minute transaction time * Has a polished wallet/miner available * Large community * Long whitepaper, great technical details about how the consensus algorithm works
This is an extremely novel concept for mining, using hard drive space is quite an amazing way to run a blockchain. It's technically is better for the environment compared to the proof of work consensus algorithm which isn't too important currently but could be in the future. Overall this is an amazing coin with potential.

Verdict: Worthwhile investment

DAR

Market cap: ($4,640,662) Supply: 13,623,762 DAR Price: $0.340630(Sun Sep 24 2017 11:46:26 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)) URL: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/darcrus/ Darcrus * Blockchain as a service company * This token was used to start up the company * Now 10% of the profits of the company will be used to buy back the tokens they issued * The company sells Jupiter nodes as private blockchains * The private blockchains have their hashes posted on the public waves blockchain through the Mercury token which acts as a verification the private blockchains weren’t tampered with * Built on WAVES blockchain * Miniscule community
This coin is rather amazing in that it has absolutely no technical value, not even voting rights for a DAO. Instead it works like stocks due to the system that the company behind it is using to give value to the coin. The value of this coin is completly dependent on how well the company does so we decided it would be better to look back on this one in the future.

Verdict: Look back into in the future

AUR

Market cap: ($5,038,517) Supply: 8,658,139 AUR Price: $0.581940(Sun Sep 24 2017 11:46:26 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)) URL: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/auroracoin/ Auroracoin * A cryptocurrency for Iceland * Half of all coins given to the people of iceland * Good sized team * Small community * No whitepaper
This is pretty much to altcoin of Iceland with no other value than that. If it succeeds in Iceland it could do well, we decided to look back on this one in the future.

Verdict: Look back into in the future

Coins decided for Week 8 (9/24/17): STEEM, KORE, DYN, PIVX, NEOS, GAM
Thanks for reading! Any feedback would be appreciated, as well as suggestions on what to research next.

NEM :: Descendant of Nxt - NEM - New Economy Movement

There is a new upcoming cryptocurrency called NEM
The author claims that this coin will have Completely Fair Distribution - Equal Shares for ALL
Link to main thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=422129.0
NEM is likely to be a fork of Nxt code. I love NXT and I admire the brilliance and vision of NXT inventor BCNext. His idea of a decentralized world is beautiful and in that world we should have more forks of his work such as NEM.
NEM as a fork of NXT could have following features
NEM 100% Proof-of-Stake (PoS) currency. Coins are earned solely by charging transaction fees. Unlike other currencies with PoS mining, NEM's PoS mining does not cause monetary inflation. The total amount of NEM in circulation is 4 billion. NEM is resistant to +90% attacks via its transparent mining algorithm.
NEM improves different features of Bitcoin, removes some disadvantages (e.g. bloated blockchain) and resolves a big environmental issue. Time between blocks is one minute. This increases the rate of orphaned blocks, but makes it more convenient for the users.
NEM doesn’t use so-called “scripts” aka predicates. This simplifies and accelerates transaction processing. Advanced features like multisig will be created on top of the core as 3rd party services.
NEM is routable through Tor and I2P anonymous networks.
Some improvement over NXT could be possible:
Block Chain stored in database
Secure Wallet
Bitcoin like Addresses
Multi Precision arithmetic
NEM as a fork of NXT could have following features
How to join after page 50 (in main thread on Bitcointalk.org). Two ways
  1. Pay a fee to join in
    Send 80 NXT to the address 14343293611098709683 Send 0.008 BTC to the address 1Lk5Paws9T1YpoSeLeZT7ZeSQKW7UNq4TJ
    After you send the fee, include the transaction hash in your reply post in this thread, then you have reserved a stake spot. Donation is welcome but not necessary
  2. Show support to NEM to join in still the same as we need some more marketing effort.
The fee to join in will double after 10 pages in this thread. So the fee will double after page 60 to 160 NXT and 0.016 BTC.
When the fee exceeds 100 NXT or 0.01 BTC, the fee will move up on a linear scale instead.

Oh great, another coin.

I have a suggestion for a coin, but as i am not a programmer i need advice.
Basically its a ppcoin clone with a few differences.
  1. The program should have a built-in voting protocol (one coin, one vote) so that you could split the coin like when companies split a stock. That is, when the value of the coin rises (hopefully) you could vote for a split to better enable small transactions. And this would also ensure that the value of the coin remained relatively stable ( obviosly the value would halve if you did a 1-2 split ). As i understand bitcoin, and bitcoin-like protocols the smallest transaction possible is fixed which i think is stupid as none of us can imagine how small transactions will be needed in the future.
  2. Perhaps i havent understood the "proof of burn" principle, but would it be possible to demand the burning of one coin to unlock the wallet. Im sure we all worry a bit about wallet-stealing software but dont these programs simply try millions of combinations precisely because its free. If each password guess cost one coin wouldnt that make it far more secure.
  3. Is it possible to have the program come with a built-in i2p-router for better anonymity?
English is my second langauge so please forgive grammatical clumsiness. Love to hear your thoughts.
