Monero Executes Hard Fork To Improve Security and Privacy Features

    Monero, one of the most important privacy protocols in the ecosystem, executed a protocol update on August 13 to improve several privacy and security features offered by the network. The hard fork was successfully performed on block 2,688,888, thanks to a collective effort of more than 70 developers, after almost 4 months since it was announced. Monero Comes Stronger With Extensive Protocol Enhancements The hard fork brought several fixes to the internal multi-signature mechanism to facilitate the exchange of information such as key sets and data synchronization between wallets, as explained on their website. 'Multisig means that a transaction needs multiple signatures before it can be submitted to the Monero network and executed. Instead of one Monero wallet creating, signing, and submitting transactions all on its own, you will have a whole group of wallets and collaboration between them to transact.' In addition, the number of cosigners required to approve ring signatures was increased from 11 to 16. Ring signatures ensure that it is impossible to trace the origin of transactions on the network. One feature that has made Monero the most popular cryptocurrency among privacy enthusiasts. In terms of security, the bulletproof algorithm was upgraded to bulletproof+, a zero-knowledge proof algorithm implemented in 2018 to reinforce the network's privacy, hiding the exact amounts of transactions and only showing the origin and destination of the transactions. Another significant... read More

South Africa Charges Former Monero Lead Developer With 378 Counts of Fra...

    Former Monero lead maintainer, Riccardo Spagni, faces over 370 counts of fraud, forgery, and uttering. The charges against the developer stem from fraudulent activities he allegedly committed when he was still employed by Cape Cookies. Fluffypony Pleads Not Guilty The so-called crypto mogul and former Monero lead developer, Riccardo Spagni, has been charged with 378 counts of fraud by the South African government, a report has said. The charges follow allegations that Spagni defrauded his former employer of more than $93,500 (R1,453,561). The crimes are alleged to have taken place between October 2009 and June 2011. As previously reported by News, Spagni was arrested in Tennessee by U.S. law enforcement. The lead maintainer's arrest stems from a warrant that was issued by a South African court when Spagni, who is also known as 'Fluffypony,' failed to make a routine court appearance. Spagni, who has since pleaded not guilty to the charges, is accused of cheating his former South African employer, Cape Cookies, by inflating the amount of money that was due to the supplier.

    Popular privacy coin Monero (XMR) has been on a rally since the start of 2022.

Source: XMRUSDT Tradingview As announced by one of Monero’s maintainers via a post, the network will undergo an upgrade on July 16th, 2022, at the height of block 2.6 million. The “Fluorine Fermi” update will introduce new features to the network. As the developer stated, Monero will increase its ring size from 11 to 16. The ring size is a term to refer to the total number of signers in an XMR transaction. As part of this network's unique model, the update will provide users with more base privacy. In addition, the network will implement an upgraded version of its Bulletproofs algorithm to decrease its transaction size by around 7%. This change is supposed to improve the network’s scalability by making “every transaction lighter and faster”. On the latter, the network will reduce the wallet’s sync time by around 30 to 40%, the post said, and will implement a change to Monero’s fee model. Thus, users can expect to see an uptick in the network’s “security and resilience”. As the update will be deployed via a Hard Fork, users and node operators will need to update their software. The maintainer made the following request to the users: A new release wil... read More

Privacy-Centric Monero Plans for July Hard Fork, Plans Include Ring Sign...

    According to a recent update on Monero's Github repository, the privacy-centric crypto network plans to hard fork in July, at block height 2,668,888. Monero is the largest privacy crypto asset in terms of market capitalization and during the last seven days, monero climbed 13.4% against the U.S. dollar.Monero Aims to Upgrade in July The development team behind the Monero (XMR) project has plans to upgrade the blockchain at some point in July, according to the Github-hosted version 15 'Network Upgrade Checklist #690.' Monero is an open-source distributed ledger with built-in privacy, as it obfuscates transactions by leveraging various techniques. The Monero network uses privacy techniques such as ring signatures, a cryptographic method, and zero-knowledge (ZK) proof called 'Bulletproofs,' stealth addresses, and it also utilizes an IP-obscuring scheme via the Dandelion++ protocol. Monero (XMR) is the largest privacy-centric crypto asset by market capitalization, which is $4.62 billion at the time of writing. The hard fork in July is the 15th software version as the blockchain has experienced a great number of upgrades since the network's inception in 2014. One of the main goals behind many of XMR's hard forks is to protect the network from application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) miners. Four years ago, a hard fork caused the privacy-centric network to split into four different protocols. Moreover, in mid-February XMR supporters were begging monero miners to boycott a min... read More

Weekend Watch: Bitcoin Maintains $42K, Monero at 3-Month High After 8% S...

    After falling to its January 2021 all-time high of around $42,000, bitcoin has maintained that level following a relatively still trading day. The altcoins are also untypically calm today, with Monero being among the few exceptions and XMR tapping a three-month high. Bitcoin Remains Above $42K It's safe to say that the primary cryptocurrency has seen better days as it attempted to jump above $47,000 earlier this week. However, it failed on both occasions when the bears returned to the scene and pushed the asset south. As reported over the week, BTC first dropped to $45,000 before another nosedive took it down to $43,000. After bouncing off and adding a grand, bitcoin started plummeting again yesterday and fell to a 17-day low of just over $42,000. Since then, the cryptocurrency has regained some traction and neared $43,000 hours ago. It has failed to breach that line yet and now stands a few hundred dollars lower. Nevertheless, its market capitalization remains above the coveted $800 billion level. BTCUSD. Source: TradingView XMR Leads the Way The altcoins suffered just as badly as bitcoin yesterday, but most have calmed today with minor gains. Ethereum dropped by $300 in days to $3,200 but has remained above that line following a slight increase. Binance Coin, Ripple, Solana, Terra, Cardano, and Polkadot are also slightly in the green. Dogecoin and Shiba Inu - the two largest memecoins by market cap - have jumped by more than 3% in a day to $0.15 and $0.000025, respectively.... read More

Biggest Movers: XMR Climbs to 4-Month High, NEAR Drops 10% Following Rec...

    Following a gain of over 25% on Friday, NEAR dropped by over 10% to start the weekend, while XMR rose to a four-month high. The move in NEAR comes as traders look to be taking profits from recent highs, and as market uncertainty remains high. Near Protocol (NEAR) After being Friday's biggest gainer, climbing by over 25%, NEAR was trading lower to start the weekend. NEAR/USD fell to an intraday low of $16.39 during today's session, as bullish sentiment in the world's nineteenth-largest cryptocurrency began to fade. This drop follows on from a top of $19.45 less than 24 hours ago, which came after speculation grew that Near Protocol would create a stablecoin that would rival the likes of Terra's UST. Looking at the chart, yesterday's peak was close to resistance of $20, and traders likely dumped NEAR as price uncertainty emerged at that level . Today's selloff has now sent prices below short-term support at $17.50, with some bears likely targeting the lower support of $15 in the next few sessions. Price strength is still relatively overbought, and is currently tracking at 62.30, which could be yet another signal to bears looking to enter the market. Monero (XMR) Despite crypto markets falling by over 2% during today's session, XMR was one of the few to trade in the green. Following a low of $215.28 during Friday's session, XMR/USD rose to an intraday high of $237.81 on Saturday. This rebound in price came after prices failed to break out of the $212 support, with bulls see... read More

Privacy Crypto Assets XMR, ZEC See Double-Digit Gains Amid Tightened Glo...

    Over the last week, the United States and president Joe Biden's administration tightened sanctions against Russia a great deal. The U.S. banned Russian energy imports, a number of other types of imported goods, and a series of harsh financial sanctions against Russia. In the midst of a restricted global economy, the top two privacy-centric crypto assets monero and zcash saw a significant increase in value last week.

On March 8, the top two privacy-centric cryptocurrencies monero (XMR) and zcash (ZEC) jumped 20% in value. The crypto community quickly took notice of the action and discussed the subject on social media platforms. That day, XMR jumped over 20%, ZEC lifted in value by 26% and other privacy-focused crypto assets like SCRT and ZEN jumped higher. I really think Privacy coins are due a pump in 2022. All this Russia stuff will also push it further on. A coin that can store value privately will be very valuable in uncertain times. - Kamal (@eth_kamal) March 12, 2022 Five days later and during the last 24 hours, the market capitalization of all the privacy coins in existence is up 1.4% to $10 billion.

Monero And Zcash Take Off With 15% Gains, Here's What May Have Spu...

    Privacy coins, Zcash (ZEC) and Monero (XMR), have been outperforming larger cryptocurrencies in the last 24 hours.

Source: Tradingview Zcash And Monero React To A FED Coin As mentioned, the U.S. President Joe Biden has signed an executive order which has surprise for its positive approach to cryptocurrencies and digital assets. As the war between Russia and Ukraine ranges on, the International Community has quickly imposed financial sanctions of Putin, the Russian elite, and its banking system. As Coin Center’s Executive Director Jerry Brito said, mainstream media have been pushing a negative narrative around cryptocurrencies. Classifying them as “dangerous”, and with the potential to allow Russia to evade sanctions. Fortunately, some U.S. government officials have also look at the other side of the coin. The core message in this executive order, as Brito said, is a serious acknowledgment from the U.S. Federal Government of cryptocurrencies as legitimate assets. The crypto market seems to have gotten used to negative or nothing messages from the U.S., thus,... read More
