Fundamental Research about Monero

There are thousands of financial or social metrics about cryptocurrencies on the internet, but when it comes to fundamental characteristics we are barely able to compare coins with each other. And almost nobody has the time to fundamentally analyse each cryptocurrency out there.

We at decided to tackle this problem. Our goal is to establish a research platform which enables comparing cryptocurrencies with each other on a fundamental level. To be able to make correct classifications about Monero we would love the community to discuss Monero in the context of the key fundamental properties we could identify. Here is the list of those properties:


  • Transaction Speed
