Monero (XMR) Reportedly Becomes One Of The Least Used Privacy Coins On Darknet
Monero was recently in the spotlight regarding the darknet various times, and this triggered more scrutiny.
Cedric Dahl, CEO of 1000x, has been recently featured on the latest edition of the What Bitcoin Did podcast, according to the most recent reports coming from the online publication AMBCrypto.
Bitcoin’s initial adoption drive
He talked about Bitcoin’s initial adoption drive and its position as a market neutralizer. Dahl pointed out the coin’s most elemental advantage:
“It’s never going to be faster. You’re never gonna solve as many problems with a distributed system as you will with a centralized system. It’s only censorship resistance.”
Monero, expected to be widely accepted on the darknet
He said that he would have expected Monero to be widely accepted in the darknet, and this is because of Monero’s privacy features and the fact that this is a decentralized and untraceable ecosystem.
As other darknet markets also showed a similar trend which seems to have been dominated by Bitcoin, Dahl stated the following:
“You would expect privacy coins to be dominating the space. But, Monero, in almost every case, is the last place coin used on these (dark) markets. And there are almost no other privacy coins used at all.”
