If it’s centralized, it is not the future of finance.

A classic originally posted by @thefuzzstone. I wonder if @50cent hodled his 700 bitcoin in album sales from 2014... that would be how much today, a bit more than $40M USD? Not bad. Or who knows, maybe he did exchange it for monero😉

$XMR / BTC pair getting noticed...
Very nice crypto chart. Should be an easy 2x up to last years high.

For March 2021, there were 78 times as many Monero transactions as Zcash fully shielded and Dash PrivateSend transactions COMBINED. The INCREASE in Monero's transactions from February to March exceeds the # of fully shielded transactions in Zcash's entire history. #monero #xmr

You can buy #Monero through a mall kiosk here in the US?? I would never get my Monero this way but this is still wild to me. @fluffypony have you seen this? 😂

An interesting, and concerning, thread on MobileCoin -- the cryptocurrency Signal is beta testing for in-app payments. signal.org/blog/help-us-test…
1/ After a good bit of research and some back and forth on Twitter, I wanted to put out a thread with my thoughts on MobileCoin. Tl;dr -- MobileCoin uses the Monero protocol to provide strong privacy for users, but sadly relies on Intel hardware guarantees and centralization.

Hilariously, MobileCoin is centralized in at least *four* separate ways: 1) Relies on Intel SGX in the consensus protocol. 2) Uses the Stellar/Ripple consensus protocol, which needs everyone to use the same "validators". 3) Relies on Amazon S3 to distribute blockchain data.

I suggest to read this thread to explore further the "MobileCoin" implementation on Signal messaging application.

Absolutely *thrilled* to share that a new #Monero-first DEX has been announced today: reddit.com/r/Monero/comments… Monero users have been asking Bisq for Monero as a base currency for years, and now it’s finally here via Haveno.
