Andreas M. Antonopoulos – The bitcoin and open blockchain

Cryptocurrency regulations of the future

Will China/USA/Europe ban the use of Bitcoin and traditional cryptocurrencies (including privacy coins) after they introduce their own state-controlled Central Bank Digital Currencies? Will they use fear, fake news of crime to justify this? They want to control money, they want data.
Will they first cripple these currencies by regulating the shit out of them, assigning different value to coins people they don't like owed at some point? Regulations already started, everyone owning crypto is deanonymized, exchange is heavily controlled, centralized exchanges steal money from people they don't like by "freezing" their accounts.
If big cuntries ban real cryptocurrencies, when 25%/50%/75% of all users loose access, how will that fuck with the price?
Will people use decentralized networks -- like Tor and I2P -- to have access to crypto? China already bans Tor, and makes it almost impossible to access the network. Hardware and software spies on all of us. China banned the real internet, now Russia wants to follow. Australia tries to ban cryptography, now USA wants to follow, again. What will we do when other cuntries start banning privacy networks?
Support decentralization, support free software. Don't let propaganda influence you, don't accept regulations.

Today’s review: Monero
What is Monero?
This name cryptocurrency has received from the word "coin" in the language of Esperanto. Cryptocurrency appeared on April 18, 2014, as Bytecoin fork (not Bitcoin). The release of the coin caused increased interest from the crypto community after announcing by the developers the Roadmap and the Whitepaper. The essence of the project was to make the cryptocurrency anonymous.
But on the other hand, the creation of such cryptocurrency attracted the attention of law enforcement agencies, including Europol. As an argument that was brought to the attention of developers, it was that Monero could become a good means of payment on the black market for drugs trade.
The FBI also speaks with the same statement, pointing out that Monero is in the TOP of the crypto-currency on the black market:
  1. Bitcoin
  2. Litecoin
  3. Monero.
The level of Monero anonymity is sometimes questioned, in particular, Edward Snowden called it "amateur cryptocurrency."
At the time of writing, Monero is ranked 11th by the capitalization in Coinmarketcap.com
How does it work?
Monero is mostly an open source software that uses the principle of proof-of-work. But unlike Bitcoin, Monero emission is not limited. That's why the developers did it so that the miners would ensure the system's operation even after the emission was completed.

https://i.redd.it/nzcpy6u3cpi11.gif
The developers of Monero have made a lot of efforts to make their cryptocurrency secure. To achieve a high result, special measures were taken:
  • Use of "Annular signatures". This technology allows you to "shuffle" all the public keys, thus eliminating the possibility of identifying any of the participants in the system.
  • Monero uses a unique protocol that creates one-time addresses. This allows you to hide information about the payee, the balance of his account and so on.
  • Protection against hacking. Cryptographic algorithms ensure the security of electronic cash stored in user wallets.
Due to CryptoNote and the obfuscation added to the protocol, passive mixing is provided: all transactions in the system are anonymous, and all participants in the system can use plausible negation in the event if they are being captured.
Dirty Monero?
Among the miners, it’s in high demand, due to anonymity for mining on other people's computers and servers. Recently, there have been more cases when Monero was noticed in the code of many viruses. The power of many computers around the world is used to extract this particular cryptocurrency, in particular, this happened last year in London, where scammers used the hacked government servers for mining.
Also Monero, right along with Bitcoin, Zcash and Dash is the most used cryptocurrency in Darknet. A particularly favored method of money laundering is the so-called "mixer". The principle of its work is that the money received illegally is sent to the exchange where Bitcoin coins are purchased, for which the Monero tokens are then purchased and then the attacker can safely transfer to any stock exchange, to a pre-established account and receive money in any form convenient for him.
Advantages of Monero
  • Absolute decentralization. Without any control, including financial organizations (banks and etc);
  • The anonymity of transactions;
  • Constant growth and trust;
  • The presence of his own personal wallet.
Disadvantages of Monero
  • The size of one transaction in Monero is more significant than in Bitcoin;
  • The anonymity of transactions began to challenge experts working on the development of other cryptocurrencies.
Conclusion
Now the developers are actively working to promote the currency. Given the high anonymity and growth in demand, success is entirely assured. The anonymity of Monero transactions is not absolute. If the attacker controls a large part of the network, then under certain circumstances, he can deanonymize some of the transactions.
At the time this article was published, Monero [XMR] is 0.812% of the total of CryptoIndex portfolio. You can always check the current CIX100 composition at our MVP platform: http://cryptoindex.ai/
