PSA: Mine Monero to Support the Network 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 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.

The Monero Network May Be Showing Signs of an Imminent Attack The Monero Network May Be Showing Signs of an Imminent Attack
While the blockchain world was preoccupied with other newsworthy stories, from the now-delayed Ethereum hardfork to exchange hacks, Monero miners have nervously been watching a very unusual phenomenon unfold in front of them. Monero, once a very profitable privacy coin to mine, have suffered like all PoW coins during the longest Bitcoin bear market to date. But those that are watching the network are scratching their heads as profitability is decreasing while hashrate is increasing. Monero is known to be a very anti-ASIC project. In fact, in 2018 alone the project forked two times to combat the rise of ASIC miners???once in April and again in October to the newer Cryptonight V8 algorithm. These forks resulted in more than 5 different Monero chains, all promising better and more secure features? but as expected, the main Monero chain prevailed in the end.

Winklevoss Twins say that Regulators are more Comfortable with Zcash but who cares Winklevoss Twins say that Regulators are more Comfortable with Zcash but who cares
The Winklevoss brothers who are the founders of the US-based Gemini exchange said in a recent podcast interview that the US regulators are more comfortable with Zcash (ZEC) than Monero (XMR). In a recent episode of the Unchained podcast with Laura Shin the Winklevoss twins discussed various issues ranging from the Bitcoin ETF approval to criticisms on their advertisement campaign. One of the important topics that they discussed in the interview was the process they follow for listing various Crypto assets on their platform. Gemini currently lists Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and notably ZCash (ZEC). In many ways, Gemini has been more conservative than Coinbase in listing tokens on their platform. Although they have not publicly stated their listing procedure, they give some insights on why they decided to list ZCash and not Monero both of which are privacy based coins.

Monero (XMR) is an open-source cryptocurrency created in April 2014 that focuses on privacy and decentralization that runs on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and FreeBSD. Monero uses a public ledger to record transactions while new units are created through a process called mining. Monero aims to improve on existing cryptocurrency design by obscuring sender, recipient and amount of every transaction made as well as making the mining process more egalitarian.

Monero continues ranging in the medium-term outlook. The stochastic oscillator of yesterday predictions favoured the bears as they increase their momentum and pushed price down in the demand area. The formation of a bullish railway track is a sign of trend reversal. In this case the commencement of the uptrend. The bulls momentum may gradually increase coupled with strong pressure. The stochastic oscillator is in the oversold region at 21 percent, yet undefined. This suggests minor consolidation before movement in a particular direction. The upward momentum may likely be favoured on the long run. This posting was found by us on January 17, 2019 6:53 AM. Browse smartereum.com to find more similar content.

Monero (XMR) Led The Cryptocurrency Market Recover, But Lost Its Gains And Went Monero (XMR) Led The Cryptocurrency Market Recover, But Lost Its Gains And Went "Red" Again | Oracle Times
Yesterday, Monero (XMR), along with Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC), led the cryptocurrency market recover with significant profits. XMR surged by about 12% but lost momentum and plummeted again in the ?red? zone, losing its gains. Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency in the world by market capitalization, traded higher yesterday and surged by over 18% hitting the $204 mark. The appreciation experienced by ETH is purely a rebound of the recent losses, as the devs, who are struggling to tackle the Ethereum?s scalability issues, are late to come up with a solution. Today, at the press time, Ethereum (ETH) continues its surge as it trades at $207, scoring a 5% appreciation in the last 24 hours. This item was first found by us on January 16, 2019 3:04 PM.

Watch out Monero, Bitcoin Private is closing in!   Hacker Noon Watch out Monero, Bitcoin Private is closing in! Hacker Noon
You?ve probably heard the argument that Bitcoin is not private. One of the many quirks of the way it uses blockchain technology means that any transactions made can be easily tracked and traced. This is true of most cryptocurrencies. And should be a concern for anyone who believes that their financial transactions should remain private. Several coins have emerged that tackle this issue. From Spectrecoin (which gained %50,000 since it?s ICO) to Cloakcoin which listed on Binance earlier this month. There are many privacy coins???but Monero is currently king. Monero was created back in 2014 to combat Bitcoin?s lack of privacy. It?s the top privacy coin in terms of market cap, and community involvement on Reddit (and other social channels). Monero brought the privacy coin idea mainstream. This information was found by us on January 16, 2019 12:48 PM. Check out hackernoon.com to find more similar content.

New Privacy Coin to Overtake Monero New Privacy Coin to Overtake Monero
A new cryptocurrency is born. Grin, a new privacy coin that uses the Mimblewimble privacy tech, has just gone live for the first time as its genesis block has been mined. The new protocol, named after the famous Harry Potter books, is a protocol that basically melts together all the transactions from the individuals, so nobody can actually track them. The hype for launch is big because the technology was already in the works since 2016 and it took a long time to be ready. Today at 17:38 UTC, the genesis block has appeared and a new era has begun for this tech. Mining is going fast now as the second block was mined just a minute later, according to a block explorer.

Forbes Middle East finally pulls profile of fake Monero founder Forbes Middle East finally pulls profile of fake Monero founder
Forbes Middle East has retracted?or, more precisely, deleted?a lengthy cover profile of Ezekiel Osborne, a.k.a. Zeke de Jong, a.k.a. Zeke Echelon. The profile had credulously repeated Osborne?s claims to be a ?cofounder? of Monero, the privacy-focused cryptocurrency. Many of those claims appear to have been entirely invented by ?Osborne,? as we reported in late October after the Forbes ME article?s initial publication. That?s right?October. A Forbes ME representative claims that ?our writers had no intention for . . . our platform to be a part of any unclear profile or a platform that would support scammers.? Yet the publication took nearly three months to investigate and correct a mistake that could likely have been prevented entirely by a five minute phone call with almost any warm body other than ?Osborne? himself. Our own initial investigation, though admittedly partial, took only two days from start to finish. This data was found by us on January 15, 2019 12:40 PM. Browse breakermag.com for additional posts.

$10 Million Monero Ransom Demanded for Return of Norwegian Millionaire's Wife $10 Million Monero Ransom Demanded for Return of Norwegian Millionaire's Wife
The kidnappers of Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen, the wife of a Norwegian millionaire, are demanding a ransom of $10 million in Monero. One perception that cryptocurrency has to constantly fight is that it?s mainly used for illicit transactions. Such is not the case, but the mainstream media and pop culture (movies and TV) tend to push such a narrative. Monero (XMR) is a crypto that is often associated with cryptojacking, wherein hackers use malware to get other people?s computers to mine the coin. Now the privacy-focused coin is being demanded as a ransom payment in the kidnapping of a 68-year-old woman in Norway. This post was discovered by us on January 12, 2019 7:49 PM.

Norwegian kidnappers demand for 1.14% of the total Monero market cap to be paid in ransom, leads to legacy discussion Norwegian kidnappers demand for 1.14% of the total Monero market cap to be paid in ransom, leads to legacy discussion
Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen, a wife of one of the richest men in Norway, went missing from her house in Oslo at the end of October. The news leaked to the press only on Jan 8 ? 10 weeks after her disappearance. The Norwegian police decided to make the case public in the hopes of receiving help from people living nearby that may have been happenstance witnesses. The victim?s husband, Tom Hagen, is a founder of Elkraft, the power supply company. Hagen?s fortune of 1.7 billion Norwegian kronor (170 million Euro) makes him the 172nd most wealthy person in Norway. Even though both Interpol and Europol are engaged in the investigation, little progress has been made so far. The kidnappers demanded a ransom of $10 million to be paid out in Monero (XMR), otherwise, they threaten to kill the woman. What is worse, they have not provided any evidence that she is still alive since December. This posting was first seen by us on January 11, 2019 1:37 PM.
