Let’s jump into Monero crypto with some details for traders.

  • First off, note that Monero is one of the oldest blockchains around.
  • It got its start back in 2014 before the crypto craze really kicked off.
  • The blockchain’s big focus is on offering privacy to investors.
  • That includes the ability to make transactions on the blockchain untraceable.
  • It’s also looking to offer its services to more than just those crypto savvy.
  • That includes efforts to allow the use of the blockchain by those without intricate knowledge of it.
  • Monero offers its own crypto wallets that users can download and get started trading with.
  • After that, they can add XMR to it in a variety of ways.
  • That includes mining, working for Monero, as well as simply buying XMR with fiat currencies.
  • It’s also worth pointing out that XMR is listed on several exchanges, both centralized and decentralized.
  • After that, traders can hold the crypto to wait for potential gains, or use it for trade with select vendors.
  • Monero has been called the “Sleeping Giant of Crypto” and that could mean major gains are on the horizon.
  • However, as with any investment, there’s no guarantee of that, so trade at your own risk.

XMR was up slightly over a 24-hour period as of Tuesday afternoon.
