Just recently, an outreach group for Monero published a paper that highlights the reasons for which the anonymous crypto XMR is designed to help protect people’s rights.

Monero masks identities

In a blog post entitled, “Preserving the Fundamental Right to Privacy For All,” writer Jack M talks about the plight of Barrett Brown, “a revolutionary journalist who caught the ire of US Federal Authorities.”

Monero lets users make anonymous donations to all kinds of controversial figures, especially activists who are targeted or prosecuted by the law, say supporters.

As a decentralized coin, Monero masks identities and keeps supporters out of trouble, especially political prisoners and controversial figures.

Brown used to be associated with the hacktivist collective Annonymous, and he is the founder of Project PM which is an initiative to probe and investigate the world of private intelligence.

Project PM's discoveries

The Daily Dot reported that Project PM uncovered “Romas/COIN,” among several covert surveillance campaigns:

“Romas/COIN was a sophisticated campaign of mass surveillance and data mining targeted at Arab countries, which was unveiled in an exclusive Project PM report during 2011. The report was picked up by Raw Story and one other outlet, and it resulted in an article by Brown in the Guardian and a segment on Russia Today featuring confirmatory comments from Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer. But otherwise, it didn’t get much traction.”

It seems that companies such as Google and Apple were partners in this effort. The goal was not known but mobile apps were believed to be a part of the program.

Also, the contract for Romas/COIN was supposed to be replaced by its successor Odyssey which may be used to monitor, deceive and manipulate the population.

Brown was supposed to face 45 years in federal prison, and he was sentenced to 63 months.
