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.

The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.

The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.

With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.

1) Bearish market to loosen its grip

The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…

2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.

Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.

  1. Bitcoin (BTC)

Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.

One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…

Crypto projects have gone through several crucial periods of development, and while it is fascinating to watch their progress to maturity, a lot of investors are becoming impatient. During the first few years, they were barely known, only talked about in specific groups, among those developers and investors who had the luck to find out about them in the early days.

The next several years, altcoins started appearing, and the voice of cryptocurrency slowly started to spread. Then, there was a period of hype, when crypto exploded, and the entire world finally learned about this new technology that promised to change the world. Naturally, the overhype led to a market crash and price correction that we experienced last year, but the impact was made, and the world is still talking about them on a daily basis.

However, now is the time for cryptos to deliver on their promise, grow up, and start showing results. There are high expectations for many projects, but for various reasons, they have yet to deliver, and many are hoping that 2019 will be the year when they finally do it. Let’s see which 3 crypto projects really need to show results, and soon.

1) Ethereum (ETH)
