Why Monero (XMR) should be Preferred over Bitcoin (BTC)

You are definitely your own bank with Monero (XMR). It is an open source crypto which has climbed the ladder so fast since it was first launched in April 2014 due to it being secure, private and untraceable.

Monero (XMR) is absolutely private and ensures all that you trade the one you trade to, as well as the extent you trade, are completely unknown. In fact, all the transaction history of both the receiver and the sender are kept confidential and are untraceable.

The scenario for Monero’s introduction

Evidently, Monero (XMR) offers the highest security to its users as their transactions are not exposed at any rate. With other cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, for instance, the addresses of the sender and the receiver are exposed publicly.

For this traceability concern, there was a need to sort it out so that user transactions can be obscured. The solution was, therefore, the introduction of Monero (XMR).

At this moment in time, if Monero and bitcoin were equally valued with same sized infrastructure, which crypto would you have, to spend, to hold, and to receive? One that announces all that you have when and how much spent? Or one that is so private, fungible and untraceable?

Basically, Monero (XMR) has ring signatures that scramble the addresses of the parties in a transaction – hence making it untraceable. Therefore, it holds the stage for being a number one crypto when it comes to privacy.

Does son beat father?

Why should Monero be preferred over Bitcoin? Undoubtedly, BTC was launched way early than Monero – to be specific in 2009 compared to Monero in 2014. Many got to know bitcoin more, and are therefore flocking to it, not that there are no better cryptocurrencies, but rather they are unaware of them.

Monero (XMR) is simply a superior choice than Bitcoin in comparison because of the following:

Superior mining algorithm

Monero (XMR) is best for long-term investment than Bitcoin (BTC). Adding to its perfect security, personal computers as well as ordinary laptops can aid in mining Monero, unlike Bitcoin which requires a special Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC).

Seclusion

With Bitcoin, all the information about the sender and the receiver are visible which is not the case with Monero that has the highest anonymity. As more individuals learn more about the privacy of transactions offered by Monero, the more Monero’s valuation will grow – recent studies confirm.

Expected future valuation

This is just a no-brainer as the current price graph explains it all. There is simply a rapid growth when you look at the price of Monero (XMR) with an increase of 11.14% within the past 24 hours.

You would be wrong if you thought it was only the price that increased because its supply as well increased touching 16 million. Monero’s expected future value at the moment is $1000.

Sustainable transaction cost

Bitcoin’s transactions cost is basically unmatchable when compared to Monero, and as if that is not enough, they are time-consuming as well.

Apart from charging less transaction cost, Monero (XMR) provides faster transactions due to the high number of individuals that make use of it at a time.

I simply believe that Monero (XMR) is superior cryptocurrency just at the perfect time in terms of history – a time when adoption of cryptocurrencies is taking the stage.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
