Monero is a cryptocurrency that is centred around three principles — privacy, decentralization and fungibility. Monero is known as one of the most private and secure cryptocurrencies that exist today. Monero can be used by any person but no one outside of the transaction is able to see who the transaction is sent by, who it is sent to or the amount that is sent.
Monero was created in 2014 and shared on a Bitcoin forum. The cryptocurrency gained real popularity over the next two years due to its advanced privacy and security. In 2016, it was one of the fastest-growing digital currencies of that year. In 2017, Monero gained even more traction when it adopted Confidential Transactions, an algorithm which hides the value of the transaction.
