What is Monero

Monero is true electronic cash. It is secure, private, untraceable.

With the Monero open-source cryptocurrency, your privacy is better protected than with any other technology. No one can know how much money you own, where it comes from or where you spend it. Exactly like cash*, it is untraceable and unlinkeable. This is an improvement over Bitcoin which, contrary to popular belief, gives away even more information than a bank account number.

Monero was launched in April 2014 and is actively developed since then. For the moment, the easiest way to store your moneros is to use the  webwallet mymonero.com.

* even better than cash, since banknotes have serial numbers.
