In the open-source crypto-currency market, the Monero digital coin, which guarantees the confidentiality (anonymity) of the transactions being made, stands out prominently. To date, Monero confidently enters the TOP-20 crypto-currency with the greatest market capitalization.
Monero uses the CryptoNote protocol, or rather its version of CryptoNight, which provides anonymity due to so-called entanglement of the code and bringing the source material into a state that is “hard to read” when decompiled. At the same time, Monero’s ring signature algorithm works according to the principle of PoW (Proof-of-work), which in English is translated as “Proof of work performance”.
Monero: background, history of creation
Monero is an open source crypto currency that provides anonymity of transactions and is one of the most popular digital coins to date. The name Monero, meaning Esperanto as a “coin”, entered into the everyday use of the crypto currency market in April 2014, when Monero entered the market without initial mining with an initial issue of 18.4 million coins. In the future, for the opening of a new block, miners receive a reward of 0.6 coins. In this case, the block is created in 120 seconds. The ticker on the exchanges is the Crypto-currency – XMR.
In 2014, an attack was conducted to crack the code Monero. However, the attackers did not manage to destroy Monero, although experts note a high level of awareness of the burglars. After that, a planned hardcore was carried out, thanks to which many improvements in security, privacy and ease of use were added. But despite this, today Monero has some vulnerabilities. For example, if an attacker has influence over a part of the network, then the anonymity of Monero can be completely or partially neutralized. In addition, recently, cases have increased when malicious users download malicious code to popular sites and, using the power of users’ devices of these web resources, are engaged in the production of Monero without the knowledge of both the site administration and the users themselves.
Despite the fact that the emission of this crypto currency is not limited, Monero’s mining algorithm requires a large amount of memory, thereby reducing the efficiency score in comparison with Bitcoin. To make a transaction with Monero, you need eight times more memory than Bitcoin. Holders Monero use this crypto currency for making payments in online games, online casinos, and as a payment tool for conducting anonymous transactions.
