Monero mentioned in a 'positive' Bitcoin article in Time
In the border city of Cúcuta, Venezuelan refugees stream into Colombia, searching for food to feed their families. Years of high inflation, projected to top 1 million percent, has turned bolivares into scrap paper. More than 3 million Venezuelans have fled since 2014, and 5,500 exit for good each day. According to the United Nations, the exodus is ?on the scale of Syria? and is now one of the world?s worst refugee crises. As Venezuelans escape, they leave with close to nothing, desperate and vulnerable. Because they live under authoritarianism, Venezuelans have no way to reform the policies that have destroyed their economy. They can?t hold their rulers accountable through free and fair elections or campaign for change without fear of reprisal. As they stand in hours-long lines for rationed groceries and medicine and watch their life savings disappear, it can seem like there are no options.

Battle of the Privacycoins: Why Monero Is Hard to Beat (and Hard to Scale) | Bitcoin Magazine Verified on Po
Ready to start building Dapps? Dive deep into blockchain development. Subscribe Now Based on blockchain technology, most cryptocurrencies have an open and public ledger. While this is required for these systems to work, it comes with a significant downside: Privacy is often quite limited. Government agencies, analytics companies and other interested parties ? let?s call them ?spies? ? have ways to analyze the public blockchains and peer-to-peer networks of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, to cluster addresses and tie them to IP addresses or other identifying information. Dissatisfied with Bitcoin?s privacy features, several cryptocurrency projects have launched with the specific goal to improve on them over the years. And not without success. Several of these privacycoins are among the most popular cryptocurrencies on the market today.

Monero Just Hard Forked and It Resulted in Four New Projects | Bitcoin Magazine Verified on Po
Ready to start building Dapps? Dive deep into blockchain development. Subscribe Now One hard fork later, there are four new Monero projects. Privacy-centric cryptocurrency Monero hard forked to version 12 of its protocol yesterday. But not everyone is on board. Following the example once set by Ethereum Classic, some users are continuing on the pre-hard fork Monero blockchain? though in this case not as a single project. Now there is  Monero Classic (XMC), Monero 0 (XMZ), Monero Original (XMO) and a second project by the name Monero Classic (XMC) (which in this article we will refer to as Monero-Classic); these are all continuing on version 11 of the Monero protocol. Of course, this means they are all still compatible on a single network, using the same coin ? just with different names.

Bear Market Blues: Monero (XMR) Price Unfazed By Decreased Transaction Costs | CryptoGlobe
Monero (XMR), long viewed as one of the most private privacy coins, has dominated the privacy space since its creation in 2014. Currently, it?s the tenth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, with a $1.7B valuation. It reached this height without a founder?s reward, like many other privacy coins, and is instead completely funded by the community. Although Monero seems like a great investment, there have been two problems daunting investors. The first is that Monero was not supported by popular hardware wallets, such as the Ledger Nano S. This was fixed earlier this year, but the second issue still remained: transaction fees. Due to its design, Monero transactions use much more data than other cryptocurrencies. This increase in data use means that transactions cost much more than the competition.

Binance, Bittrex Slash Monero Withdrawal Fees Thanks To Bulletproofs | CryptoGlobe
Leading cryptocurrency exchanges are lowering withdrawal fees for the privacy coin Monero (XMR) as transaction fees are much lower now that XMR has added Bulletproofs to their network. Bulletproofs, implemented last week, lowers transaction fees on the Monero network. Withdrawal fees have always been a headache for anyone in the cryptocurrency community. This was felt particularly acutely with Monero. As its privacy features make transactions bulky, users sometimes have to pay hefty fees to take their cryptocurrencies off the exchanges. Not anymore. Yesterday, Binance and Bittrex announced that they would be lowering XMR withdrawal fees to 0.0001 XMR. Considering that XMR is currently trading at $107, that 0.0001 XMR translates to a withdrawal fee of only $0.01.
