What is Monero (XMR)?

Monero works on the ring signatures and ring confidential transactions, also known as RCT. It deploys secret addresses to the approved transactions at the protocol level.
The timestamping scheme of Monero is similar to that of Bitcoin: Proof of work. The issuance is decentralised and works on block rewards. The blocktime, at present, is 2 minutes raising from 1 minute recently. The current circulation of Monero is estimated to be around 15 million.

Monero is an open source cryptocurrency giving access to everyone who wants and allowing everyone to become their own bank. It is because it provides users with the ultimate control of their account making sure that no one else is keeping a record of their transaction.

Monero is a community project. It means that the coding and development is the product of work done by a large team of best researchers, engineers and developers coming from corners of cryptocurrency world. It is estimated that, at present, there are 30 fundamental developers working on the project, but historically over 240 developers have contributed. Monero has been successful in creating a well-knit strong community with open gates. Cryptographers working on and for Moreno receive funding from community donation. Since there is no infrastructural base for Monero in any country, it simply cannot be shut down by any one country.

Fundamentals of Monero:

The prime key in Monero operations is the maintaining balance of enabling the user to manage their keys and handle them privately. This is contrary to the Bitcoin transaction mechanism in without VPN or mixed services the IP address be connected back to the parties involved in a transaction.
Ring Signatures is where the whole system becomes different. They are digital signatures where a number of signers sign a transaction. In simple words, the actual signer is mixed into a group of non-signers forming a ring to hide the identity of the real signer. The sender in transaction generates a one-time key. And, the receiver’s system is the only system which can detect the one-time generated by the sender.
Ring Confidential Transactions helps the sender to get the transaction approved by providing small information without revealing the amount of the transaction to the miner or anyone else on the blockchain.
