Monero is a cryptocurrency that makes transactions private by default. Whereas Bitcoin transactions are public, Monero uses a technology called “ring signatures” to mix transactions and create a set of decoys each time money is sent. Recipients and payment amounts can be obfuscated with Monero. Many people believe that privacy is a basic right in any free society, and that a monetary system should have privacy as a feature (just like paper cash).
