Use Monero

Use Monero if you want a non-traceable cryptocurrency. It just needs to become more popular to have real faith in its future.

John McAfee's Favorite Crypto Site

This is the official Monero site. Monero is the crypto with the most privacy. hasn't changed much over the years. If you are getting started with Monero, you ought to check the resources on this site, such as the What is Monero (XMR)? page. Famous people such as John McAfee touted Monero as the best cryptocurrency due to it being the only non-traceable cryptocurrency. The downside with Monero is that it's not all that popular yet, especially among retail. My guess is there are some powerful bag holders. If not for them, it would look even smaller. I do worry whether it can compete with other projects like Ether and Solana. But if Bitcoin keeps going up, it should be fine. Bitcoin traders alone with buy some Monero and keep it going.
