Monero (XMR), the most popular and important privacy-oriented coin has just hit its half-decade mark.
On April 18, XMR celebrated its fifth birthday, and the same day, back in 2014, the project’s genesis block has been mined.
The privacy crypto advanced a lot during this time, and it has definitely managed to change the crypto industry.
With its popularity and technical prowess, it became a respected coin despite the fact that it has also been making headlines in relationship to hacks and the dark web.
It’s true that a lot of bad actors have been using XMR for various not so great moves, but overall the coin is perfect for people who are looking for privacy and anonymity regarding transactions and more.
