Monero Talk

Is Monero the truest cryptocurrency?

About the show

Monero Talk broadcasts weekly conversations with topical guests to understand what the Monero cryptocurrency is today and what it hopes to become.

We strive to give birth to new Monero users by simply reporting on the facts in our search to answer the question--Is Monero the truest cryptocurrency of them all? In staying true to the Monero ethos, we aim to always be skeptical. While we are Monero Talk by name, and Monero devotees at heart, the intention of the show is to ultimately discover and support the one blockchain that is most aligned with the original cypherpunk and crypto-anarchist ideals that cryptocurrency was born from. And the one that is most likely to succeed at becoming true digital cash. So far, we believe Monero is the one.

Guests include:
The developers and researchers working on the open source core protocol and the cryptography behind it;
The people building the projects and infrastructure supporting the protocol;
Privacy advocates and people building privacy enhancing technologies;
Analysts and investors speculating on Monero's growth;
Journalists and pundits weighing in on Monero's place in the crypto-sphere; and
Respected (sometimes controversial) contributors and community members.

If you enjoyed the show & would like to support us, a donation of any size would be greatly appreciated and would mean so much!

  • Tone Vays is LIVE on Monero Talk! Is Monero digital cash...or useless???

    A heart to heart with renowned Bitcoin Maximalists Tone Vays on whether Monero is digital cash or a useless project. I have a ton of respect for Tone Vays and all the great work he has done toward helping grow Bitcoin and communicating the real value proposition of cryptocurrency. But, given Tone's understanding of why the Bitcoin technology is so important for preserving liberty in the digital age, I don't understand why he is negative toward Monero -- a fairly launched, open source, distributed, digital cash project, that has made improvements upon Bitcoins privacy and fungibility shortcomings.
