The authors of SafeBrowse, a Chrome extension with more than 140,000 users, have embedded a JavaScript library in the extension?s code that mines for the Monero cryptocurrency using users? computers and without getting their consent. The additional code drives CPU usage through the roof, making users computers sluggish and hard to use. Yes, Pirate bay is the mastermind behind all of this. I seen a article awhile back about pirate bay offering to help create hidden websites for bitcoin. Right away I knew that was a bad idea, short while later this little news event shows up, I must say, this will destroy alot of reputation not only for Bitcoin, but for the cryptocurrency market in general, I am not impressed at all.

Monero Experiences Major Drop in Hashrate Following Hard Fork - Toshi Times
 The privacy-centered altcoin Monero recently implemented a hard fork in order to resist ASIC miners. The execution of this more or less worked as expected, but it also led Monero to experienced a drop in hashrate of around 80%, a dramatic decline for the currency. It is currently unclear whether this will hurt the cryptocurrency long-term, and it also remains to be seen whether it is only a temporary decline. Monero had been planning the update to its proof-of-work algorithm for at least a week, in order to combat ASIC mining. Since the drop in hashrate coincided with the hard fork, many believe that the ?missing? hashrate could simply be attributed to ASIC miners who were now no longer part of the chain.

Is Monero XMR Really The Sleeping Giant Of Cryptocurrency - Crypto Daily
Monero Outreach, a branch of the Monero community had published an article on their website monerooutreach.org, last month which discusses why they believe Monero XMR is the sleeping giant of cryptocurrency and that one day, even Bitcoin will sit in the shadow of XMR. This week, the article started getting traction within the mainstream cryptocurrency news outlets, so, we want to explore exactly what the team have said in order to understand if Monero will one day become the world's biggest cryptocurrency. Before we continue, please do remember that we are not investment advisers and that this is not investment advice. Purchasing Monero is a risky business, as is investment into any cryptocurrency, so if you do wish to invest in Monero, please do so based on your own research and not because one group claims it will grow impossibly in the future.

Zcash (ZEC) vs Monero (XMR): Which Coin is More Secure & More Private | CryptoGlobe
Privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies have been increasingly adopted as they allow users to transfer funds without revealing too much about the origin (sender) of the transaction or their personal (identification) information. Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC) are among the leading privacy coins - not only in terms of market capitalization, but also as far as their adoption is concerned. In this article, we?ll carefully compare and contrast these two cryptos. Monero (XMR) is an open-source, decentralized digital currency which was launched in April of 2014. It aims to be ?a digital means of exchange with untraceable payments, unlinkable transactions, and it is resistant to blockchain analysis.? This is achieved using Monero?s proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm - which is called CryptoNight.
