Monero's mission is to create a secure, privacy-focused and decentralized payment system. The privacy is achieved by obscuring the sender, receiver and the amount of every transfer made. Unlike most of the cryptocurrencies that are built as a fork of the Bitcoin (or Litecoin) software, Monero is based on the CryptoNote protocol, the key features of which are special algorithms related to blockchain obfuscation. The project started in 2014 and the privacy was further strengthened in 2017 by the adoption of Bitcoin Core developer Gregory Maxwell's algorithm Confidential Transactions, hiding the amounts being transacted.
There are also so-called "stealth addresses" generated for each transaction. It's impossible to discover the actual destination of the transaction by anyone else but the address owner. All these make Monero different from cryptocurrencies providing public access to the blockchain ledger, where addresses associated with some specific activity can be marked, the payments can be and traced and the addresses blacklisted by the network modes. Such features make XMR rather a popular payment system in the Darknet.
