Riccardo Spagni (fluffypony) on the popular Unchained podcast
Blockchain technology is about to transform every trust-based interaction of our lives, from financial services to identity, from health care to our Internet of Things devices. In this podcast, host Laura Shin talks with industry pioneers across tech, financial services, health care, government and other sectors about how the blockchain and cryptocurrency will open up new opportunities for incumbents, startups and everyday people to interact more efficiently, directly and globally. Riccardo Spagni, the lead maintainer for Monero, describes the four pillars of Monero's privacy, makes the case for why it would still be valuable even if BItcoin were to adopt privacy, and explains the ways in which its privacy is stronger and weaker than Zcash's. He also discusses his new project, Tari, and how it could enable a new world of natively digital assets such as tickets, loyalty points and in-game assets, and how it will relate to Monero. He also explains his view on the fact that Monero is one of the top currencies used on the dark web and appears to have been in demand by bad state actors such as North Korea. Plus, he gives us his backstory, which includes gel-based nail polish and bikinis, and the origin of his nickname, Fluffypony.

Monero Technical Analysis: XMR fails to recover, slips to lows of market collapse - BCFocus
Allow to send web push notifications to your desktop. Those who expected a swift turnaround from the worrying lows of last week, which saw the collective market cap slip to its lowest point in over a year, were left disappointed as this week began. Just $3 billion was added to the broader market?s total value, after which it slipped back to the lows of $182 billion as major coins failed to stage a recovery. Though few cryptos enjoyed a brief upswing, selling pressures in the market took over and dragged their prices down. Among the top 10 most valuable digital assets, Monero is faring the worst.

CNBC's Crypto Trader Recommends Selling Bitcoin for XRP, Plus Ethereum, Ripple, Tron, Litecoin, Monero, VeChain: Crypto News Flash
From a new stance on Bitcoin and XRP, to Ethereum mining for the mainstream, here?s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto. The host of CNBC?s Crypto Trader Ran NeuNer has gone from questioning the reason for XRP?s existence to apparently fully backing the coin. In a new tweet, NeuNer says the recent Bitcoin Cash hard fork and subsequent hash war is an example of why traders should choose to buy XRP. These hash wars highlight why everyone should dump BTC and BCH and just put all their money into XRP! ? Ran NeuNer (@cryptomanran) November 17, 2018 Dear @RobertLe88 . I have done my homework and I have come to this conclusion. I have also reached out to @JoelKatz and Ripple via mail and twitter and had no response? I?m happy to listen to someone from Ripple if I am wrong? pic.twitter.com/jC6NEsuuef

Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Stellar, EOS, Litecoin, Cardano, Monero, TRON, DASH: Price Analysis, Nov
Market data is provided by the exchange Binance.com, Kucoin.com, Hitbtc.com etc. Bitcoin saw its third worst drop of 2018 on Nov. 14, as it broke down to new year-to-date lows. In doing so, it broke through the critical support of $5,900, which had held throughout the year. Prior to the breakdown, Bitcoin had entered a period of low volatility not seen in years. We were expecting the resolution of the tight range in cryptocurrencies to be to the upside, hence, our bias was on the long side. However, with the fall, the technical picture has weakened, and our assumption was proven wrong. We need to reassess our strategy in this new backdrop.

Crypto Initiative Donates Monero to Bail Out Immigrants in ICE Detention
Latest news About Crypto Currency The Bail Bloc initiative has started using cryptocurrency raised through charity to help people get out of U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) pretrial incarceration, according to a tweet posted by a Bail Bloc co-founder Nov. 15. ICE is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S, the mission of which is to monitor cross-border crime and illegal immigration. In 2017, the agency conducted 143,470 overall administrative arrests, 92 percent of which resulted in a criminal conviction or a pending criminal charge. In ICE detention people are required to pay an immigration bond in exchange for their immediate-term release, although statistically only 47 percent of those in detention are given a bond hearing. Those who cannot afford to pay the bond, or who are not granted a bond at all, must wait for their court hearing while detained, which could last from months to years.

Running Monero nodes, local and remote
In the Monero network infrastructure, nodes are considered to be very important. When connecting to the Monero network, running a node is a very efficient way of getting the highest level of privacy and security. This is due to the fact that nodes store a copy of the blockchain technology used. Nodes can be arranged in such a way that information on one node can be shared with other nodes and clients. If one runs a node from home or workplace or from wherever he/she is at the moment, then that?s considered as a Local Node. Local nodes can be accessed locally. This means that the user doesn?t need an internet connection in order to access it. The node is rather available in the user?s local network. A local node can also be referred to as a personal Monero node.

WebCobra --> McAfee Spots Russian Malware Mining Monero and Zcash
Researchers at computer security firm McAfee Labs discovered a lethal new cryptojacking malware called ?WebCobra,? which steals victims? computing power to mine the cryptocurrencies Monero or Zcash secretly. The spike in cryptocurrency prices has inspired a new wave of cybercriminals, who use malware to cannibalize unsuspecting victims? computers to mine crypto. McAfee Labs says the Russian application WebCobra stealthily installs the Cryptonight miner or Claymore?s Zcash miner, depending on the configuration of victims? machine. ?On x86 systems, it injects Cryptonight miner code into a running process and launches a process monitor,? McAfee observed. ?On x64 systems, it checks the GPU configuration and downloads and executes Claymore?s Zcash miner from a remote server.?

McAfee Labs Warns Over New Russian Monero Cryptojacking Malware WebCobra
A further player has entered the crypto malware arena in the form of Monero miner WebCobra, a McAfee Labs analysis shows. More malware is targeting internet users in the form of WebCobra Monero miner, McAfee Labs reports Internet security provider and research lab McAfee Labs has uncovered new malware which secretly uses consumer devices to mine Monero (XMR), a blog post confirmed Nov. 12. Dubbed ?WebCobra? and originating from Russia, the latest threat downloads one of two mining clients and uses the processor power of an infected device to generate coins for the perpetrators. Displaying the more ?classic? behavior of so-called ?cryptojacker? malware, WebCobra runs almost without a trace, McAfee Labs says, the only noticeable difference for the end user being reduced hardware performance.
