What is Monero (XMR)?
Monero (XMR) is a cryptocurrency targeting confidential and private transactions. This virtual coin differs from Bitcoin (BTC) or Ether (ETH) in that its blockchain is not public. Nobody can trace the transaction history on it or gain access to public addresses, as is the case with most other cryptocurrencies. Operations carried out through Monero become undetectable thanks to advanced cryptography solutions.
What functions does this cryptocurrency perform? As we mentioned above, it is peer-to-peer (P2P) electronic cash that allows for fast, cheap and confidential transfers of funds from one person to another without any time or border barriers.
How does Monero ensure the privacy of its users?
This cryptocurrency is based on the so-called ring signatures and hidden addresses that allow you to secure the data of the sender and recipient of the transaction. The user cannot be associated with the public address in this case, since the ring signatures combine the user's key with other keys in the Monero blockchain. In this network, all XMR coins are simply mixed together when making transactions.
Such high privacy has its advantages and disadvantages. This cryptocurrency is most often used by people who value the confidentiality of transactions. The negative response that appears around Monero, however, is that XMR, due to its strengths, can be used by criminals on the black market or used to circumvent the law
Monero and Bitcoin - basic differences
The XMR cryptocurrency differs from BTC in many ways. While Bitcoin is usually credited with anonymity - in fact, it has nothing to do with it. BTC blockchain blockchain is public. This means that each user can see when, from what public address, where and how much money has been transferred. Due to the fact that most cryptocurrency platforms have to comply with the KYC and AML policies, it is easy to get to a ball along the thread. In other words, when verification is in place on the stock exchange, the company knows who the public address belongs to and, if necessary, is required to provide information to the relevant law enforcement authorities.
The situation is completely different with Monero. Although this cryptocurrency is not as popular as BTC, it gains an advantage when it comes to the level of transaction privacy. Of course, this is not the only difference between the two coins. See the table below for more details!

How to mine Monero (XMR)?
The XMR cryptocurrency, as well as BTC, is mined in the process of the so-called mining. Mining Monero, however, is much simpler. Special equipment is not needed for this process, so XMR is also open to smaller users - this is one of the main advantages of this coin.
Cryptocurrency miners can mine XMR on regular computers, they don't need specialized cryptocurrency miners for this. For each block they excavate, they receive a fixed reward of 0.3 XMR.

Monero (XMR) - on which exchanges is it available?
The XMR cryptocurrency is a subject of much controversy due to its high privacy. For this reason, at the turn of the last few years, many platforms had to give up its listing. Don't worry, this coin is still available on the largest cryptocurrency exchanges, for example, users can buy Monero in pair to Bitcoin (BTC) or Tether (USDT) on Binance.
