What is XMR

Originally forked from "Bytecoin" in 2012, Monero (XMR) is a privacy-focused decentralized cryptocurrency. It offers complete privacy to its users, meaning none of the transactions can be traced back to you when using Monero currency.

Stealth addresses can only be identified by the user, and all transactions are validated without revealing identification. This is made possible through the Ring Signature technology, which uses anonymous digital signatures that do not reveal sender and receiver identities and are randomly generated for one-time usage.

Monero is ranked among the top 40 protocols, is fully decentralized, and has the third-largest developer community amongst global cryptocurrencies.

Monero is the leading privacy-focused cryptocurrency with substantial real-world value. As traceability and non-fungibility are a growing concern for BTC as a currency, Monero positions itself as a more secure alternative for private transactions.

With the third-largest developer community, Monero offers greater user identity privacy than BTC since Bitcoin utilizes a transparent blockchain where payment sources are traceable. In contrast to BTC, Monero tokens do not carry any trading history. As a result, Monero tokens have zero risk of being banned or blacklisted due to their previous usage.

Monero is also commonly used as a payment method for network fees. Monero is considered the top cryptocurrency for complete user privacy and a popular investment choice.

Cryptocurrency is a new class of digital assets popularized by Bitcoin (BTC). While cryptocurrencies or digital/virtual currencies work much like their traditional fiat counterparts, the biggest difference between the two is the lack of centralized infrastructure and banks.

Where fiat currencies are issued by and kept in banks, digital currencies are issued via distributed mechanisms that follow strict consensus protocols. This translates into cryptocurrencies being stored on blockchains which are largely immutable, much more transparent and globally accessible.

Given their utility and growing list of use cases, cryptocurrencies are gaining popularity and one way to buy cryptocurrency is to use a reliable crypto exchange like OKX. On OKX, users can sign up, verify their identities and start buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies instantly using credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers and other supported payment methods.

Typically, when you buy cryptocurrency, you have to store it in a dedicated wallet, but the security of your digital assets depends on how safely your private key is kept. Every cryptocurrency wallet has a private key which allows complete access to the stored digital assets. If you lose your private key, you effectively lose your funds.

Using an exchange like OKX also facilitates users because their newly purchased or traded digital assets are kept securely on the platform and are credited into users' accounts, available to be sold or transferred as required.

Ultimately, users should always buy cryptocurrency from a reliable exchange, and if they withdraw their digital assets to a personal wallet, they should keep their private keys safe and backed up to ensure the security of their funds.
