According to McAfee Antivirus creator John McAfee, Monero is one of the best cryptocurrencies to invest in this year. This is thanks to Monero being the cryptocurrency markets’ leading privacy coin. Here, we’ll, therefore, look at how to buy Monero and why doing so might be in your interest.

Is Monero a good investement?

Monero is not as popular as cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. However, many believe that Monero may be a top coin to watch in the coming years.

Monero is a privacy coin. This means that the way Monero works makes it impossible to link Monero wallet balances to the real identities of wallet users. There are, of course, other privacy coins on the cryptocurrency market. However, none facilitates total user anonymity the same Monero does.

Is the fungibilty of Monero better than Bitcoin has?

By preserving the anonymity of users, Monero is more fungible than Bitcoin.

At present, it is relatively easy to link Bitcoin wallet addresses to the real identities of Bitcoin users. Because of this, it is possible for law enforcement agencies to blacklist Bitcoin coins in a way that effectively makes coins worthless. 

In 2018, the U.S. government was successful in blacklisting Bitcoin wallets belonging to two Iranians guilty of staging ransomware attacks on U.S. computer users. As a result, $6 million of BTC became worthless and impossible to sell or trade on exchanges.

With Monero, blacklisting addresses simply isn’t possible. This makes XMR more fungible than Bitcoin, and, (some argue) more credible as a cryptocurrency as a result.

Is Monero more scarce than Bitcoin?

In total, only 21 million Bitcoin will ever enter circulation. As a result, Bitcoin becomes scarcer over time. This results in the Bitcoin price steadily increasing.

In the case of Monero, only 18.4 XMR will ever enter circulation. 90% of all XMR that will ever be created is also already in circulation today. Monero, therefore, benefits from comparable scarcity to Bitcoin. As more investors become aware of this fact, it is not unreasonable to expect Monero to start making major price gains.

Is now a good time to buy Monero?

At present, no one can say definitively if now is a good time to buy Monero. As it stands, the 2020 stock market and global cryptocurrency market is in completely uncharted territory. However, when it comes to blockchain technology and fungibility, Monero is widely accepted as superior to other altcoins.
