    With Bitcoin or Ethereum, once you have transacted anything with your wallet, the person you transacted with can look at your wallet, see how much is in there, see how much you're spending, see which wallet it's going to, [and] see how much you've received.

    If your bank provided that information to anybody who wanted it, would you be happy with your bank? I don't think so.

    With privacy coinsβ€”and I keep saying Monero was the first and I still think the best, certainly the one used the most on the dark web . . . β€” nobody can see anything.

    You can give them your wallet and they can see jack shit about what's in yours. They don't know who you are or where you came from. People looking at it don't know what you bought, who you bought it from, or what you sold or who you sold it to.

    The Dark Web is 100% Monero. Monero will win.

[Golem] is a decentralized way of using your spare computing power in conjoined effort with any other member of the community to help massive projects otherwise impossible to accomplish. I like conservation in software.

I like Verge. Having difficulty acquiring it though.

DOGE is an investment in the playful spirit that nourished the early developers and adopters of cryptocurrerncy. Sadly, that smiling spirit has been largely replaced by seriousness, anger and dry self-interest.

Seems pretty reasonable to me that almost all PoW-GPU coins that aren't ETH are prone to being 51% attacked, at least until ETH moves to full PoS, at which point it's likely to become XMR I think (could be even sooner depending on FFG economics).

Monero and BTC are the only two cryptocurrencies I've ever publicly recommended for investment. I'm a big fan of the XMR devs and the Monero ethos.

I think that ASIC resistance is still incredibly unwise and that it worsens the ASIC centralization issue. (ASIC manufacturers have the incentive to mine with their ASICs until the parameters change, then sell them for use on forks)
