3 Best Monero Mining Hardware ASICs & GPUs 2018 (Comparison)
Monero, a fungibility and privacy centered currency, has been gaining significant traction in dark net markets around the globe. Considering that its value has passed the 40$ mark, you might be wondering how to best mine the currency. Here?s a quick guide regarding the hardware that you should use. Monero does not have any ASIC mining hardware, so you?re left with the option of mining with CPUs and GPUs. More specifically, Monero?s mining algorithm makes use of a type of Proof of Work (PoW) called CryptoNight, which was designed to be effective for the computer hardware of casual users. What?s special about Monero?s mining algorithm is that it lowers the performance gap. As a result, the efficiency gap between using GPUs and CPUs to mine is low relative to other cryptocurrencies. This causes ASICs to be prohibitively expensive for mining Monero, and therefore creates an arguably fairer playing field.

3 Best Monero Wallets for 2018
Monero has become one of the most popular cryptocurrencies due to its excellent privacy. Its website describes it as ?secure, private, untraceable currency.?

TREZOR does not support Monero but may in the TREZOR 2 version coming soon. Monerujo gives you control over your own private key by storing it locally on your Android device.

McAfee Labs Discovers New WebCobra Crypto Mining Malware From Russian Hackers To Mine Monero (XMR)
McAfee Labs is known for their protection software that has been highly popularized since consumers started using the internet. It should come as no surprise that their latest press release shows that they have discovered a new malware from cryptocurrency hackers. Rather than stealing the personal information of investors and investor wallets, the malware links directly to the user?s device to mine Monero (XMR). The malware is being called ?WebCobra,? and it is believed that the program came from Russia. When a device downloads it, the processor of the infected device generates coins. It runs almost seamlessly in the background, so most of the infected users do not even realize that it has been downloaded. The only real difference is the performance of the hardware, considering that the battery power will run out much sooner.

This is related to groups that pump and dump virtual currencies to earn juicy profits after manipulating the market.

Monero Analysis: Current Bullish Momentum to Continue
Premium Research and Analysis for Cryptocurrencies & FX Monero analysis for today is carried out on a 6 hour timeframe. March 5 2018 to current date shows that Monero has maintained its bearish trend inside of a channel.

A logarithmic scale was used in this Monero analysis and therefore requires switching back to an arithmetic scale to make any physical measurements and/or projections on the price chart.
