No More Brother Wars

I hold both Bitcoin and Monero, and don't get why the two camps are always shitting on each other. Both are PoW, have carved out different sections of processing power (CPU vs ASIC), and are infinitely better than the PoS (proof of semitism) trash that has infected crypto.

Rather than being at each other's throats all the time, why don't we call a truce and focus on the actual threats to crypto.

          lol Monero has been getting delisted for years now, no big deal. And a lot of us are accelerationists who actually WANT Monero fully delisted, using centralized exchanges defeats the purposes of owning a privacy coin.

          That is just simply false. On top of my head there are 2 rejected BIPs that were later taken, improved, and implemented. Dandelion and lmdb. Dandelion was rejected because of """node DOS concerns""". Monero researchers took it, improved it, found flaws in them, fixed the flaws instead of abandoning the entire thing, and made today's version. This is why it is called Dandelion++ and not simply Dandelion. Piracy is closer to stealing than this.

          The second one is lmdb, afaik some obscure Bitcoin node implementations use it (but like 99% is Bitcoin core and 0.7% libbitcoin the last time I checked), but it works way better on Monero's blockchain, because of Monero's chain being structured and ordered in a different manner. Again, I don't see how "stealing" would apply, the codebase was done by Monero devs and researchers, they do not claim that they invented it. Also I might be wrong but lmdb in general is not even a cryptocurrency technology, but rather simply databases.
          Technology is not property. If you build a wheel, and some other people see it and build and improved version. That is not stealing from you. Otherwise, all our current technology is stolen from some cavemen. If anything these 2 are examples of Bitcoin's lack of research and development. The last completely new concept on Bitcoin I saw was CoinPool, seriously flawed, on L2 (and L3), and it was maybe February of this year. The last completely new concept I saw for Monero was PLSAG, a completely new type of transaction of L1. This was maybe a few days ago in the #monero-researchlab room.
          P.S. ZMQ or 0ZQ might be another one but neither Monero or Bitcoin use it. And it isn't a BIP, I don't even think it came from the cryptocurrency sector. Quite possibly the only usage outside of privately kept custom wallets is p2pool on Monero.

      The problem with monero is precisely the lack of transparency. There are several uses of money that are impossible to go forward if the entire market is a black box.

      Think of it this way: you don't want Joe Biden to fuck you up; you can't do it if his wallet is a black box; public view keys don't cut it either since he can change addr.

        This is not an issue since Monero is optionally transparent, with the secret viewkey you can reveal all of your transactions.
        Cash is also untraceable and you can withdraw and deposit this at a bank while complying with AML laws.

        Pick up the remaining 2 brain cells and do your own research on both basic economics and Monero before spouting this utter foolishness.

        I bet you with regulation coming to crypto. Monero maxist will shit at their pants as they begin to see exchange delist the coin. I will diversify into other gems like RFOX, MAHA, BEL and RIDE if I were you.

        >maxist will shit at their pants as they begin to see exchange delist the coin.
        LMAO, as if delisting/banning Monero from exchanges would work. This would only make the final nail in the coffin as to how superior Monero really is, it would also be more scarce due to less availability therefore raising its price even further.
        You're quite dumb, no rational thought behind that statement whatsoever. You shitcoin shillers are all cut from the same cloth. You're embarrassing.

        Monero doesn't need to become the single world currency, I don't think anyone realistically expects that. But the future of currencies is digital, most people, especially in Europe, already pay everything without physical cash, it's still fiat but digital. In some countries they might very likely phase out physical money altogether, and sooner than expected.

        Tell me, what happens in said future if you want to get the services of a hooker or buy marihuana in countries that is not legal? Do you want daddy state or literally everyone in the planet (public ledger) to know the details of it? There is a very human need for privacy, it's not evil, and BTC doesn't fulfill it.

        It cannot be done because Bitcoin lacks the fundamentals to be a proper currency/money. It's already old technology by today's standards and tech always needs to be upgraded in order to stay ahead of the competition. Everything bitcoin does, Monero does it better.

          Bitcoin and Monero both exceed in some ways, ways that complement each other. They're both necessary for different things.

          It sucks that Bitcoin will likely be co-opted by the central banks, but I prefer that they adopt Bitcoin, instead of continuing with the fiat system. And Bitcoin being public makes auditing these banks easier.

          Plus, since Bitcoin doesn't change means I know how it will operate 50 years from now. I know it'll always be the most secure cryptocurrency. And like gold, I can put some aside for my great-grandchildren, without having to worry about forks or massive protocol changes.

          But for everyday use by normal people, I get why Monero is superior, being private, harder to censor, and garnering greater demand as other cryptos get cucked.

            I'll explain to you like you are 12. You CANNOT have a currency or money if its not fungible (interchangeable). Central banks will NEVER adopt is as money or currency because it lacks the fundamentals to do so. The only reason governments would want to declare it as legal tender would be to legally SPY on your financial transactions and where you go/spend your money (since everything is public). This is surveillance at the highest level.

            >Plus, since Bitcoin doesn't change means I know how it will operate 50 years from now. I know it'll always be the most secure cryptocurrency.
            No change means it does not innovate, which means it'll die. Do you use the same technology from 15 years ago or an improved version of it?
            Also since it does not change, in order to provide financial incentives fees will be even more unbearable since mining will become unprofitable. This'll make the network only for rich people to transact - and they won't do so because it's everything's public and they know it.

                Right now people aren't asking for privacy, when the time comes I'm pretty sure it will be implemented, it's about demand and time.
                I buy most of the things with Bitcoin and stil haven't ad any problem because I do everything right..

                And don't take me wrong but if I'm going to buy something illegal i'm pretty sure the government wont be able to know it since the seller and buyer are going to use new wallets and there will be no way for the government to know what these wallets are doing other than just two addresses sending x amount of btc to the other.
                Come on, use your brain retard.

                If you buy anything illegal with it, it's bound to happen since it's permanently recorded on the blockchain. If your funds have a history, your transaction can be censored. This happens because every single coin can be traced to its point of origin.
                If you go out of your way just to try to have a fraction of "privacy", and also knowing about Monero, YOU are the retard.

                It does fix the problem for fast in and out transactions and back to chain, the problem is when people start holding their btc in the privacy layer.
                >There's a reason for btc being displaced for the superior choice.
                Bitcoin is not being displaced of course some black markets use monero it's undeniable, but bitcoin is still being hugely used out there.
                >If your funds have a history, your transaction can be censored. This happens because every single coin can be traced to its point of origin.
                As I said there's no way they will know who those two addressed belong to if the seller & buyer is doing everything correctly.
                If they are doing everything correctly all the feds can see is two addresses being transacted and the bitcoin being moved, they can't even know if it's part of a drug deal or not, therefore bitcoin is still usable.
                Then one can just wash their bitcoin on LN and all that or just sell it to monero and then buy bitcoin back and voala!! washed up!...
