Privacy is a human right. Monero is the digital cash we need to prevent an Orwellian financial future.

Time for a new blog post: sethsimmons.me/posts/contrib… Ever wondered how to give back to #Monero but not sure how to use your specific talents or skill-set? Not a dev but still wanting to contribute? This should be a good intro to get you started. #MoneroMeansCommunity

#Monero isn't just for privacy-nuts. The Monero community realized early on that sound money *requires* fungibility, and thus privacy, in order to be sound money. Even if you don't think you need transactional privacy, Monero's privacy ensures 1XMR = 1XMR. #MoneroMeansMoney

Monero achieves all of this without relying on peer-pressure, good will, or governmental backing. We build tech that removes the need for any of the above, and will continue to do so. Even those who don't see a need for privacy (or even spending!) still benefit 😉

Some commissioned researchers thoughts on the subject:
Found this oh so beautiful, poetic and truthful description of #Monero at a study made by the Special Committee on Financial Crimes of the @Europarl_EN 🙌 Description probably hurts the credibility of many #BTC maxis though. europarl.europa.eu/cmsdata/1…

This right here is a good meme. Many users won't (and most can't) follow the complex list of steps, gotchas, and high fees just to have a usable currency. If you want something you can hold *and* use, #JustUseMonero.
Hm which one should I use?

This is what happens when you rely on peer pressure and boycotts to enforce fungibility instead of technology. We *cannot* rely on goodwill for our future, we have to build tools that cutout this reliance. Enter, Monero. #SHUM #MoneroMeansFungibility
1. @bottlepay have rejected my incoming btc transactions due to the coins having been in samourai wallet and/or mixed with @SamouraiWallet #Whirlpool If you have been sent mixed coins you will get stung. @matt_odell @PeterMcCormack @proofofsteph #bitcoin

This is also the first instance of Samourai Whirlpooled coins being blacklisted, AFAICT. Big (bad) news for Bitcoiners everywhere.

This is only the beginning. Once someone falls down the rabbit hole of actually trying to *use* cryptocurrency and not just "hodl", #Monero becomes an indispensable tool and proves its value quickly. Once you go Monero you never go back. #JustUseMonero

I’m witnessing an unbelievable amount of interest in #XMR IRL. Have been helping individuals and businesses get on board non-stop since late December.
