All privacy technology comes with a cost, and unfortunately, Monero (and Zcash) style transactions have a very significant impact on scalability (spent coins db).

Most of the stuff in this space doesn't get actively exploited. Look at BTCP or IOTA, both terribly, hilariously insecure, and, yet . . . nothing. That doesn't make them secure; it only means there is lower-hanging fruit for people to exploit.

It's a free world. But it's just scammy and borderline fraud for a few promoters and a noticable quantity of new sock puppets to claim BCH is Bitcoin given the reality and social consensus. That's not helpful to achieving the awesome potential of crypto currency.

$LEO is a USD denominated corporate bond, with frequent lump sum buy backs. When it's repaid it will hit parity. Expecting LEO to moon is like the joke about expecting USDT to moon. The price relates to interest rate vs market and risk perception (plus interim exchange discounts)

There is a bug in Zcash where you can ask a node to relay a malformed transaction. It will get rejected but nodes that own or have view keys of shielded address throw an exception and react differently, which you can see. So you can use it to find out which node owns a zaddr coin
