Monero (XMR) is a cryptocurrency that focuses on anonymity. It was launched in 2014. It’s an open-source protocol that uses the CryptoNote application layer as its foundation. It employs an obfuscated public ledger, which allows anybody to send or broadcast transactions while keeping the source, amount, and destination hidden from outside observers. To issue new currencies and incentivise miners to protect the network and validate transactions, a proof of work technique utilising the hash function RandomX is employed.

Monero achieves anonymity and fungibility by utilising a variety of privacy-enhancing methods. It has attracted users who are looking for privacy features that aren’t available in other cryptocurrencies. It has, nevertheless, garnered notoriety as a result of its illegal use on darknet markets.
