Monero: Bitcoin 2.0

Poker_Star
Poker_Star

DarkNet markets have officially adopted Monero as their new currency.

It is Bitcoin, but with better privacy, so illegal trade can be done 100% anonymously and even NSA can't spy on you.

If you want to stay poor, don't buy it now.

Monero isn't that much better, but it is perfect for illegal dark net purchases, which was pretty much the only intrinsic value of Bitcoin.

This is why I bought this shit for a few k, I don't see the downside.

Oh wow, so my few k gets reduced to 1k, ok. Well, if dark net markets adopt it, then that 1k can grow into 50k.

Wow... I was literally thikning about selling all my ETC last night and buying Monero.. Didnt do it.

How high do you guys see it going, I just bought at the top, if the dark net has accepted it it will go up right?

On 1st of September dark nets just begin trading it. So the growth is on from there. This is only the beginning, I bought my bag with some BTC and will hold for months to come at least.

I think it can be a good long term hold until an EVEN BETTER coin comes along.

If dark net markets would not have adopted it, I would not care.

Look at this picture, retard:
@New_Cliche

Do you know what it is?

It is Ethereum google trends search volume compared to Monero.

Ethereum isn't actually used anywhere and it is still high as hell.

Monero has potential of replacing Bitcoin in dark net markets, which is the only place that really matters.

So put 2 and 2 together and just sit tight a few months or years.

because monero isnt the only anonmyous coin out there

Vcashs main priority is anonymity

but with the way things are going things like ETC,LSK will win, no one wants to use dark nets, but people will use internet 2.0 3.0 what ever the fuck you want to call it via decentralized dapps bapps w.e

monero is nothing more then a p and d

@Sir_Gallonhead
Pump & dumps always happen, what do you expect from volatile cryptos? I have been so far in profits with all of my long term crypto investments (BTC, Ethereum, Monero) it is just important to buy early if the crypto has intrinsic potential and sit tight for months or years.

The way I see it, Monero has got huge upside potential up until the 1st of September because of speculation and lack of other news. The market is going to trade it up in sorta 'legged' trend fashion up to maybe $7-10.

Once september hits, if it's adopted successfuly there will be a massive spike, and it will end up at $20 or something by the end of September.

OR

There will be some key flaw with it and it will flop and descend to under $4 before moving up again to $5-6 on shorters taking profit before it begins the slow descent of shame back to $1 over the next 6 months.

Either way getting in now is pretty safe up until 1st of September.

Let us be real, many druggies all over the world and other baddies as well use deep web all the time. If Monero replaces Bitcoin in Deep Web, then there is no use of Bitcoin anymore. Nobody cares about Bitcoin really in the real world.

I hope lots of you guys got in early. I've been gently shilling it for months now. Paying it forward since I first heard about it here.

Remember, Monero isn't a premine pnd shitcoin. It has a wide distribution so it doesn't have a small group that benefits disproportionately from successful shilling.

Don't let highly motivated vocal minorities distort discussions on Monero.
Eg this guy @farquit

@Harmless_Venom
Would you say Monero is a good long term investment?

Skullbone

@Methshot
I'm in it for the long term definitely. As far as I can tell this is the best money in existence for now. I'm just going to sit on my monero until enough people realise this fact. I'll be cashing out for everyday goods and services if the time ever comes.

I remember watching videos of A Antonopolous where he said that a better version of Bitcoin could take over and ever since then I've been on the lookout for bitcoin's replacement. IMO Monero could be it. Literally bitcoin 2.0 like in the OP. Since that video I've learned more about crypto and found some more clever people to listen to. I've lost a lot of respect for AA recently since he's refused to look at xmr properly. It's his loss but his attitude really shits me.

It's like since he is now a whale in bitcoin and ethereum, he doesn't want to hear about anything else. Under the current status quo he's set for life. Reminds me of people in the same position with fiat and the current financial system. Something to watch out for I guess, I'm sure we're all susceptible to it.

@TalkBomber
Buy monero from Poloniex with bitcoin from wherever (I use CoinJar in Australia) . People might start selling it directly for Fiat soon if the price stays high. Localbitcoins maybe even. Sorry bro but I'm not going to help you anymore than this. You're on biz, you should know crypto basics.

Garbage Can Lid

@eGremlin
The biggest thing imo is fungibility. This means that each coin is worth just as much as every other coin since they are indistinguishable. Bitcoin is not fungible because every transaction can be traced. Therefore any coin that can be traced back to something like ransomware or an exit scam could potentially be refused as payment by those who don't want to be associated with crimes or whatever else. These coins would therefore be worth less than coins that are accepted everywhere. (think how food stamp dollars that are sold at a discount to real dollars because they can't buy cigarettes or alcohol) That kinda breaks the currency since not every bitcoin is worth the same amount. You can even check the "taint" level of coins on blockchain.info

Other features include:
A gradually declining block reward instead of halvenings.
A tail emission to retain mining incentives without relying only on fees alone.
A mining algorithm that is far more resistant to asics and centralisation.
Automatic block size scaling (the tail emission is crucial for this to work)

That's what I've got off the top of my head.

@TalkBomber
You'll need a debit card in order to buy bitcoin from LocalBitcoins from legit users. You'll need to enter in your online bank account and send the money to his address. You should buy bitcoin from somebody who has an account at the same bank as you, that way the transaction won't take 1 working day. Preferably do it in weekdays.

The bitcoins will be deposited at your localbitcoins wallet(the buyer should easily see your address when he clicks on your username) and from there you go to Poloniex where you click deposit and you send the bitcoins from localbitcoins to Poloniex.

@Harmless_Venom
Man here's a multi-milliondollar idea: please someone do it.

Make an app. That lets people post 'odd jobs' in their local area... that allows payment with things like Monero.

That way you can earn money without paying tax, completely untracebly.

You could even set up businesses or if your a chick, whore yourself out with no way for the IRS or anyone to track you down.

Infact if you're a crack whore, then you could whore for monero, and then buy crack from the darknet direct to your dumpster without ever touching a single US dollar.

Monero's been around for TWO FUCKING YEARS. It's not new, it's not better, and you can't buy it anywhere near as easily as Bitcoin.

Mark My Words. And I say they won't support it because there's nothing at all to indicate a coming changeover and these sorts of things are massively complicated. They can't simply turn on another payment method, they need an entire system to handle storage, rotating addresses, escrow, etc and if they actually were doing that they'd be bragging about it constantly.

Don't fix what isn't broken is a pretty good motto for the most used black market out there.

man I'm lucky as shit. I moved almost all my bitcoin into monero after the finix hack. My thinking was the hacker may move his stolen btc into monero so his coins wouldn't be traceable. Then this dnm shit goes down and I triple my money lol.

Should I cash out or do you guys think this has room to grow? I've been off and on monero since last december and it seems like a solid tech but seems there are a few competitors in the user coin space that scare me. On the other hand, I sold my ether at ~4$ after quadrupling my money and really regretted it. I could see monero going to the same +10$ space.

If you think about it, monero may soon be the only cryptocurrency that is actually being used for something other than speculation.
