Monero vs. Bitcoin
Not too long ago, Monero was in the news again after crypto enthusiast Max Keiser revealed the fact that he’s pretty certain that Monero will gain the position as a market leader.
He believes that this is bound to happen sooner rather than later.
Keiser supports Monero and pointed out the lack of fungibility in Bitcoin’s case.
He said that Monero could serve this purpose and as a result, the privacy-oriented coin will become one of the top three digital assets in the crypto market soon.
Regarding the price of XMR, the coin is currently trading in the red on CMC.
