Monero is a privacy-focused cryptocurrency developed by a group of anonymous programmers. The Monero coin (XMR) is a fork of Bytecoin and one of the first cryptos to implement the CryptoNote protocol. The Monero price significantly increased in 2016 when it was adopted by the AlphaBay darknet market. The XMR coin is widely adopted due to its private and secure transactions.
The Monero coin is one of the biggest cryptocurrencies in terms of both market capitalization and price. However, it is highly volatile and should be treated with care when used as a speculative trading tool. Monero price online and live XMR chart are available on Coin360.com.
