Monero is a decentralized, open-source cryptocurrency that was created in April 2014.
It is based on the CryptoNote protocol, which is designed to provide anonymity and privacy to its users.
Monero uses a technology called ring signatures to hide the identity of the sender and the receiver.
It also uses stealth addresses to ensure the privacy of the recipient's address.
Monero's unique design allows for untraceable and unlinkable transactions, making it a popular choice for users who value privacy.
The supply of Monero is not limited, with a maximum of 18.4 million coins that will be in circulation by the end of 2022.
The Monero network is maintained by a decentralized community of users and miners who verify transactions and secure the network.
Monero is traded on various cryptocurrency exchanges and can be stored in a Monero wallet or a hardware wallet.
It has a relatively high degree of liquidity, making it easier for users to buy or sell Monero.
Monero is often used as a privacy alternative to Bitcoin and has been adopted by various merchants and organizations.
It has a growing following and has been noted for its strong community and commitment to privacy.
