5 Best Monero Mining Pools to Join (2018 Updated)
The everyday person cannot compete with dedicated mining setups, RIGHT? Miners have come up with a strategy that allows them to combine individual hashing power to mine more efficiently. This is done through mining pools. Mining pools are a way of receiving more frequent payout?s from your mining by teaming up with other miners. When you collectively mine a block, the rewards are given proportionally to your contributed hash power. If you were to mine on your own, the expected payout as the amount of block?s mined reach infinity would be the same. This is not practical, due to the variance involved with mining. Mining pools have pretty much become mandatory if you want to mine for profit.

Monero?s website claims the cryptocurrency as private, untraceable, fungible and secure, with these four factors being an important part of any privacy-focused cryptocurrency. Instead of using zero-knowledge proof (ZK-Snarks) technology, Monero uses ring signatures, stealth addresses and ring confidential transactions to keep transactions private.

[German] Monero 2018 Year Review
Das Jahr 2018 ist fast vorbei und wir blicken zurück. Für viele steht der dramatische Kursverfall im Vordergrund, doch nun möchte ich etwas Licht auf eine Angelegenheit werfen, die leider oft zu kurz kommt: die Technologie. In 2018 habe ich viel über Kryptowährungen dazu gelernt. Durch meine Tätigkeit als Redakteur komme ich in den Genuss, mich beruflich mit meiner Leidenschaft auseinanderzusetzen und in die kryptische Welt des digitalen Geldes abzutauchen. Ein Projekt hat mich da besonders bezirzt: Monero. 2018 im Rückspiegel zu betrachten, illustriert meine Faszination. Nochmal kurz aufgefrischt für alle, die sich nicht so gut auskennen: Monero ist eine pure, proof-of-work-basierte Kryptowährung, ähnlich wie Bitcoin. Allerdings fußt Monero auf einem eigenen White Paper, nämlich Cryptonote. Dahinter steht auch nicht Satoshi Nakamoto, sondern hier heißt der Unbekannte Nicolas van Saberhagen. Der Fokus bei Monero liegt auf Privatsphäre. Im Watch my Block: Monero habe ich Anfang des Jahres die anonymisierenden Mechanismen vorgestellt. Außerdem hatte ich Mitte des Jahres die Ehre, auf der BTCM2018 eine kurze Präsentation über die fungible Kryptowährung zu halten:

What is Monero - Worthofcrypto article
Monero (XMR) is a cryptocurrency designed for increased anonymity and privacy of users. At the same time, Monero?s mining algorithm is designed to simplify efficient currency mining on traditional hardware, unlike Bitcoin, for example. Monero was introduced as a cryptocurrency in 2014. From the outset, the aim was to strengthen the system with regard to the anonymity of users and the protection of their privacy. In this sense, Monero?s blockchain is less transparent than that of older systems; amounts and user identities can be handled in a way that cannot be viewed by third parties but can also be disclosed on request.

But beneath their aspirations, they have financial benefits for hodlers and traders. It is a well-known fact that governments around the world kicked against the adoption of cryptocurrencies. From a wider perceptive, the backlash against these coins was their potential to harbor money laundering. The Verge (XVG) coin had within 2018, took the game of privacy to the next level.

All of Monero (XMR) will be mined by 2022, 90% already mined
According to data from Moneroblocks, as of December 20th, 16.6 Million out of the 18.4 Million ultimate supply have been mined, which means 90% of all Monero?s supply have already been mined. The total XMR available in the supply at the time of press is 16671051. On May 31st, 2022 all the Monero ever to exist will be mined. For the Bitcoin network, this end will be in 2140 after which the miners will have to earn rewards through network transaction fees. But in the case of Monero (XMR) the supply is not fixed but instead, the miners are compensated using a feature called as ?Tail Emission?. Unlike Bitcoin?s monetary policy Monero will keep incentivizing miners with 0.6 XMR per block (as opposed to the current Block reward of 3.41 XMR) in perpetuity after May 2022. The creators of Monero believed that rewards are necessary for the network to thrive instead of relying on the transaction fees.
