Monero is a Cryptocurrency, the network powered by PoW (consensus mechanism based on mining) algorithm. The original software was developed by thankful_for_today & Nicholas van Saberhagen and first released April 18th, 2014. The coin is Privacy-focused. The official Monero website is https://www.getmonero.org.

As of today, August 19th, 2019, out of totally available ∞ XMR, 17,162,701 are in circulation. It's possible to mine moneros. The total market capitalization of monero is $1,477,793,386, the rank among other cryptocurrencies (based on the capitalization) is #11. The current rate of 1 XMR is $86.1 USD; converting to the national currency of United States, the rate is 86.1 USD for 1 XMR.

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.

Monero is mined by the means of an accessible “Proof of Work” algorithm; it's rather easy to mine Monero on consumer-grade hardware (average laptops, office PCs, etc.), which makes it more difficult for someone to purchase a large amount of mining power. After the release of the JavaScript implementation of Monero miner Coinhive, the egalitarian mining process makes XMR mining a new way for the website operators to monetize the content. It was used by both the legitimate online publishers and hackers who embed the code to third party websites and/or were using this model without informing the visitors; as a result, the in-browser miners are blocked by many browser extensions, ad blockers, etc.
