I started using Monero crypto when John McAfee (antivirus) spoke about it in an interview. John McAfee said it was what "everyone" used because it was the only truly anonymous crypto. I don't need a fully anonymous cryptocurrency, but I prefer it as an investment.

Today I went onto the site and it said that it was "winding down," which means it is closing down. You have to withdraw your cryptocurrency before November 7, 2024, when it closes down for good. Trading on the platform is already disabled.

It's worth noting that localmonero.co isn't the official Monero website; get getmonero.org is the official site.
