A Beginner's Guide to Monero
Monero is a leading privacy coin and currently the 12th largest cryptocurrency. Here's a beginners guide to Monero written by Justin Ehrenhofer, the organizer of the Monero Community Workgroup. In celebration of Monero?s five successful years since launch, I have put together a short introductory guide to Monero. Monero?s goal is beautifully simple: a usable cryptocurrency that functions as users expect. That includes protecting users from network attacks, large-scale surveillance, and being accessible anywhere. Monero was founded on April 18, 2014, by an alias ?thankful_for_today.? The project was a fair launch of the CryptoNote protocol. Although CryptoNote had many flaws, it was one of the best privacy solutions available at the time, and it attracted many developers and researchers. Shortly after the creation, the Core Team forked the project away from the original creator, who wished to continue the project in ways the rest of the community disagreed with.

Monero hitting half-decade mark!
Cryptocurrency News & Your Guide to the Blockchain Economy This April 18th, the Monero (XMR) privacy coin notably celebrates its fifth birthday. The project?s genesis block was mined on that same day back in 2014. Like the discussions that arose around the Bitcoin blockchain?s 10th anniversary earlier this year, Monero?s latest birthday will undoubtedly instigate a period of reflection in the XMR community over how far the cryptocurrency has progressed in its journey to date. Zooming out, the privacy crypto has indeed advanced in most regminards since its launch ? namely in its popularity and in its technical prowess.

Request for comment: knueffelbund's GUI design proposal
This is my first proposal, but I've been contributing to the design of the Monero GUI wallet since November, 2017. You can see the designs I've done so far on Github and Zeplin. I also designed and built and organize my crypto UX research here. The GUI team has really picked up the pace of development the past few months, and I'd like to continue supporting them with design work as much as I can. That's why I'm putting this proposal together. A lot of my work as a UX designer has to do with usability. For example, I recently did some user testing on the wallet, in which it become clear that the mnemonic seed section during wallet creation is easily missed by users. So I created a design and proposal to move this part into a separate screen. I'm just mentioning this because my proposed work is all about usability improvements, not about changing the visual styling of the wallet (other than the new white theme). Good usability his hugely important if want Monero to become more widely used.

PSA: Mine Monero to Support the Network
Monero miners use computing hardware to run a variant of the CryptoNight algorithm and compete for a mining reward associated with the next block of the blockchain. Monero mining is known for it?s ASIC resistance. This means it is more accessible and friendly to mining with CPU and GPU hardware, but it does not guarantee against individuals and companies configuring powerful ASICs and FPGAs to mine Monero as well. The Monero developers have established a routine network upgrade, occurring about every 6 months, to help combat against ASICs and FPGAs mining Monero and gaining control of the network hashrate.

Analysis: More than 85% of the current Monero Hashrate is ASICs and each machine is doing 128 kh/s
In this article I?m going to present and walk you through some Monero nonce research and how the final numbers in the title were concluded. If I made any obvious mistakes or if you think there?s something that could enhance this research, let me know. This was the chart that piqued my interest and made me do this research, but let?s just dive right into it. On it you can see the nonce distribution over time. In theory the nonce distribution should be a random number between 0 and 2³². On the very left from block 1,500,000 to block ~1,546,500 you can see thick white stripes along the whole nonce range. At the same time it was publicly confirmed that ASICs were running on the network. Those thick white lines mean that a lot of nonces of the respectively found blocks were not chosen in a random fashion, I argue it was done so on purpose to align with the already existing thicker lines of the normal distribution nonces (as they perfectly line up), to try and hide in them, but their hashrate was just too big, so too many blocks were found in those nonces, making them too thick and obvious.
