Monero Talk

Is Monero the truest cryptocurrency?

About the show

Monero Talk broadcasts weekly conversations on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/c/monerotalk) 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!

    TODAY'S 🎙SHOW: Douglas Tuman interviews Keith Weiner, CEO of Monetary Metals, a platform for products that offer investors a yield on gold, paid in gold.

    Keith shares why he believes in the gold standard and his reasoning for why he does not see crypto as capable of being a better form of money.

    Unfortunately Keith’s time was limited so Doug was unable to fully dive into Monero with Keith to explain the nuances of things like, Monero’s fungibility and tail emission, in comparison to gold, but perhaps this is for the best, allowing Keith to take a closer look at Monero before getting back together for a Part 2.

    TODAY'S 🎙SHOW: We grabbed some interviews from a few of the big name Speakers at the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami. Including:

    Nick Spanos an early Bitcoin Entrepenure who pioneered the NYC bitcoin center on Wall Street, Liat Shetret a crypto policy and regulation advisor with the blockchain analytics co Elliptic, and Mark Cuban a celebrity investor who needs no introduction.

    The conference was packed with thousands of attendees and grabbing Mark Cuban in particular unfortunately was not under ideal circumstances so we apologize for not being able to have a deeper conversation with him…

    But we hope you enjoy some of the revealing tidbits from each speaker …Our takeaway from the conference as a whole is …old school crypto people respect Monero and believe it provides value as digital cash …while the vast majority of attendees don’t even really understand what a true cryptocurrency really is.

    They are ironically blinded by the allure of non fungible tokens. We have a lot of work to do to educate crypto noobs about the importance of digital cash. The good news is, we believe they will eventually find their way to Monero.

  • Henry of Techlore on why he recommends Monero as a Privacy Tool

    TODAY'S 🎙SHOW: Douglas Tuman interviews Henry, creator of Techlore — a media company of sorts that produces informative - yet engaging content that promotes privacy tech.

    Techlore is a tremendous success and win for the privacy tech sector, proving that there is a growing demand for learning about privacy preserving technology.

    Doug avoids focusing the interview solely on Henry’s overall privacy tech advice, since the best way to consume that information is from Techlore content, And rather, keeps the discussion focused on why Henry cares about privacy and where he sees crypto and..you guessed it Monero - playing a part in the battle for privacy.

    TODAY'S 🎙SHOW: Douglas Tuman interviews Chad Thackray, a software developer specializing in automated trading systems and data science, who also runs an up and coming YouTube channel that focuses on analyzing cryptocurrency data such as on-chain transactions and market prices.

    Chad has a particular interest in analyzing Monero because of its utility, and as you will see in this episode, given Monero’s steady yearly growth in transaction count, Chads analysis suggests Monero is highly undervalued and will likely have some big growth spurts in price in the years to come.
