Monero (XMR) News
By now, I have already not purchased over thousand dollars worth of products and services just because they didn't accept crypto (in my case always Monero thanks to xmr.to). All they accept is traceable legacycoin and so I lose interest. I find it hard to pay with debit/credit cards (centralized database of IDs and purchases) and look at myself in the mirror afterwards with any sort of dignity. The whole process is so damn degrading and humiliating.
Merchants, think about this for a moment. It's quite possible I'd rather not have your product at all than pay with fiat. Your product may be important to me, but not quite that important.
Please stay on topic: this post is only for comments discussing the uncertainties, shortcomings, and concerns some may have about Monero.
NOT the positive aspects of it.
Discussion can relate to the technology itself or economics.
Talk about community and price is not wanted, but some discussion about it maybe allowed if it relates well.
Be as respectful and nice as possible. This discussion has potential to be more emotionally charged as it may bring up issues that are extremely upsetting: many people are not only financially but emotionally invested in the ideas and tools around Monero.
It's better to keep it calm then to stir the pot, so don't talk down to people, insult them for spelling/grammar, personal insults, etc. This should only be calm rational discussion about the technical and economic aspects of Monero.

How it works:
Post your concerns about Monero in reply to this main post.
If you can address these concerns, or add further details to them - reply to that comment. This will make it easily sortable
Upvote the comments that are the most valid criticisms of it that have few or no real honest solutions/answers to them.
The comment that mentions the biggest problems of Monero should have the most karma.
As a community, as developers, we need to know about them. Even if they make us feel bad, we got to upvote them.
To learn more about the idea behind Monero Skepticism Sunday, check out the first post about it:
As a fun way to support the monero project, I am mining with my desktop and pointing it to the general donation address.
I find the idea of donating with spare computer resources quite appealing, but my 8 year old i7 is only projected to mine 1.168 XMR / year. To make a more meaningful gesture, I upgraded my desktop PC to a Ryzen 3900 and will carry mining altruistically for the lifetime of the CPU. The higher hashrate and more frequent payouts will also allow more fun by pointing to individual CCS proposals. The components started arriving today. Hobbyist mining in the fullest sense. Happy hashing!
I didn't use Tails for some time, what is the best way to set up a persistent wallet?
I own a web-hosting company and I want to integrate monero payments to my nodejs backend. Can anyone recommend me a module for this / and a guide on how to setup automated payments?
