Welcome to on MONERO (XMR) which is one of the next big things (not judging by the rumors), but technical and fundamentals.
After Zcash it's a second best privacy coin made.
We have seen Monero is sidewalking since December, pretty much at the same range (0.0120-0.0135 sats ), but since volatile as usual, #XMR will gain masin coming days.
Lets rollback at the beginning.
Lowest low on XMR was 0.012 BTC/XMR in August, November and December last year.
Since than, as per technicals and either TA or FA analysis continually as sidewalking, but keeping the .
Judging as per technicals :
Weekly oversold, monthly oversold, yearly... :)
is uprising on weekly /(looking very sharp on daily basis), Daily on very bottom in front of daily cross.
When talking about fundamentals, there are roomors that privacy coins will be more and more popular in time.
Speaking of that and having on mind XMR bulletproof fork which brought siginificant improvements as :
To hide the amounts of a transaction one needs to provide commitments to values instead of the values themselves. These commitments need to ensure certain properties, the most important of them being that the sum of the outputs is not larger than the sum of the inputs. In other words, if a transaction has two inputs A and B and two outputs X and Y, we need to show that A+B - (X+Y) >= 0 without revealing any of the values. This is not a very hard problem in principle, but it becomes hard when your system is susceptible to overflowing. This occurs when numbers are stored using a fixed amount of space, and means that if a number becomes too big it will simply disregard the most significant bit. Then, an attacker could choose very large values for X and Y, making A+B - (X+Y) >=0 because overflowing, while in reality A+B - (X+Y) is far less than 0.
To overcome the problem above people use range proofs, which basically prove that a commitment correspond to a number in a certain range, but without revealing the number. This way, an attacker cannot use very large numbers. Unfortunately, these range proofs require (if I understand correctly) a separate ring signature for every bit of the number, making them particularly heavy in terms of space.
Bulletproofs are a replacement for range proofs that use far less space. I do not have a good understanding of the internals of bulletproofs, so I cannot explain them and this comment
However, Zec is a carrier of ZK Snark protocol (Zero Knowledge) it allows anonymity or transparency in the same time/upon users choice (with further network upgrades), but has 100% obfuscation, (as bulletproof fork on XMR, only even better).
Speaking of XMR (Monero), JP Morgan refused XMR in favor of ZEC considering it only valuable asset for 100% private transactions.
There is a rumor also that ZEC will be @SwissBANK 21.century currency, but its too early to talk about it.
I would like to clarify one thing for the people who say " BTC is the KING" and other nonsense stories.
Biggest run of XMR was from 87 to 450$.
One more important thing to add is that we need to understand where Bitcoin is going in order to understand how altcoins will behave, because i've seen bunch of people posting wishful thinking TA's in order get followers.
XMR in the meantime during Bitcoin consolidation and run uptrended for 30% over Bitcoin .
That would be 43% nominal USD gain (if you have invested 100$ on btc 4000 XMR current price), you would have 143$ worth of XMR since exponential growth and ratio change.
Now, after B is pretty much stable on 5000$ range +, expecting XMR to shoot up as it does making over 100$ per XMR (as making parabolic slope upwards) and makes huge gain.
If you find this TA and FA usefull, feel free to press like and follow.
