In an age where we post almost every aspect of our lives online and social media companies essentially own our internet identities, some may think privacy is all but forgotten. Monero suggests otherwise. The world’s most popular privacy token is a favorite amongst cryptocurrency enthusiasts that value their privacy.
Released in 2014 by a team of anonymous developers, Monero is the project that puts “privacy and anonymity” above all else in the digital currency space. The token XMR exists on its own blockchain and unlike other public ledgers, hides almost all transaction details. Both sender and receiver identities are completely hidden in addition to the transaction amount. Well, not hidden but disguised with encryption techniques.
The media has jumped all over Monero, accusing it of being a cryptocurrency for criminal behavior due to these anonymous qualities. While it could be true some bad actors are taking advantage of this, it is also a good cryptocurrency for those that just value privacy. Whether or not it will ever replace top cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin is highly unlikely. However, as long as there is a market for privacy--which there always will be--there will be a market for privacy tokens like Monero.
