Description Monero is a decentralized cryptocurrency, meaning it is secure digital cash operated by a network of users. The core values of Monero are privacy and fungibility. This assembly continues the tradition from the past years at C3. We are also co-hosting a small stage with presentations and community talks. See: https://taiga.getmonero.org/project/rehrar-35c3-2/

The Monero project

Monero is a team effort of many different users, to date (2018) the project has 540 code contributors. The Monero projects consists of a lot of community workgroups, which are organised via IRC as well as through taiga.getmonero.org. The project itself is besides Bitcoin the only community-driven cryptocurrency, so it is entirely 'decentralised' and user controlled, under no corporate control. The work on the different projects is funded through the Forum Funding System (FFS), where the community decides what gets worked on. Through the FFS also teams such as the Monero Research Lab (MRL), as well as the Monero Hardware Wallet got funded.


About Monero

Monero (XMR) is an open-source cryptocurrency created in April 2014 that focuses on fungibility, privacy and decentralization. Monero uses an obfuscated public ledger, meaning anybody can broadcast or send transactions, but no outside observer can tell the source, amount or destination. Monero uses a Proof of Work mechanism to issue new coins and incentivize miners to secure the network and validate transactions.

Monero is a decentralized cryptocurrency, meaning it is secure digital cash operated by a network of users. Transactions are confirmed by distributed consensus and then immutably recorded on the blockchain. Third-parties do not need to be trusted to keep your Monero safe. Monero uses ring signatures, ring confidential transactions, and stealth addresses to obfuscate the origins, amounts, and destinations of all transactions. Monero provides all the benefits of a decentralized cryptocurrency, without any of the typical privacy concessions. Sending and receiving addresses as well as transacted amounts are obfuscated by default. Transactions on the Monero blockchain cannot be linked to a particular user or real-world identity. Monero is called 'fungible' because it is private by default. Units of Monero cannot be blacklisted by vendors or exchanges due to their association in previous transactions.


The Monero ecosystem

The Monero Project consists of various other projects such as the Kovri I2P Router Project (see the gitlab repo), Sekura Monero Hardware Wallet, Kasisto (a Monero Point of Sale payment system)
