The online publication continues and highlights that there’s “A new level of resistance was erected at $70.924, and initial support lies near the $50.313 mark. If the bull-run continues, XMR would land in overbought territory by next week.”
Monero vs. Bitcoin
Monero was recently in the news when the privacy-oriented coin was compared to Bitcoin.
There’s a recent report coming from the German Ministry of Finance which highlights the risks that privacy coins are posing to the financial system and this risk is said to be greater than the once posed by Bitcoin, reveals the Decrypt report.
This is mainly due to the anonymous nature of transactions that are carried out using Monero.
“Due to the increasing popularity of Monero on the Darknet, it can be foreseen that this crypto asset, especially, will gain more practical relevance in the future in the area of securing and exploitation,” according to the report that we mentioned above.
Regarding the price of the privacy-oriented coin these days, at the moment of writing this article, XMR is trading in the green and the crypto is priced at $59.34.
