The project will ...

Thanks for the answers. jtgrassie I think Stealth Coin does exist. If they are still in development how do they have a currency name XST ? You can also buy and sell it. And there is a wallet, and it can be used with Ledger too. https://coinswitch.co/info/stealth/what-is-stealth They have a payment system for merchants to use, https://www.stealthpay.com/...

@jtgrassie's reply is excellent, but here is an update on how to switch to these various modes with the latest version of monero GUI (v0.15.0.2 currently): Step 1: log out of your wallet, there is an icon in the upper left corner, or you can go to Settings and then there is an option to close the wallet. Step 2: Click on Change wallet mode Step 3: Choose ...

I don't know how Globee works but you can certainly build a payment gateway for monero as you described. If you're planning to do everything yourself php is a bad programming language for this. Because php is only executed when someone visits a page and is not constantly running so you're going have to run cron jobs that check for new incomming ...

If you install Monero GUI over Tails, should you install the blockchain on same drive as Tails You don't have to. This is up to you. If it's not on the same drive, wherever you do sync the blockchain to will need to be mounted in Tails when you want to use it. Can I install the full node (blockchain) on a section of my hardrive on my PC? Yes. Or ...

Whether something is "safe" or not is subjective. If you use Globee to handle transactions for you, of course you will be sharing information with them. See their privacy policy for the types of information and how it is handled. Globee is a payments provider. It is designed to make it easier for an online merchant to accept Monero and handle converting to ...

My GUI wallet was hacked and someone emptied my wallet of 70.9982557 XMR Transaction ID 138a695a28c332daf3a8da3219ade3dff617cbc185b1bfc7f5f11880aa98c2e4 I had this wallet for nearly 2 years and thought it was secure. I guess i was hacked and someone then guessed my password to open the wallet which was a great unique password. I live alone so it was done ...

Actually, tor/i2p support has been in Monero since the previous release, not just the last one. With regards to your specific questions: The releases don't "contain" tor/i2p, rather they have options available to integrate with a local tor/i2p router to broadcast transactions over tor/i2p. See ANONYMITY_NETWORKS and README. The settings are in the daemon. ...

There's little reason to be downloading and importing the raw blockchain these days. Just running the daemon and letting it sync the blockchain is almost always the best approach. If for whatever reason you need to download and import the raw file instead, you should follow the guide. Addressing some specific points in your question: It took 4 days to ...

By using a remote node you send all signed transactions of yours to a centralized server. If the server is malicious, it could log your IP address and TX hash together. Since the all people you send Monero also get the same transaction hash, there would be no meaning of using such a tool to be anonymous if one of them was also malicious or got tracked. By ...

1) what is the IP and is it broadcasted when you do transactions? The IP is whatever IP your ISP assigned to you. If you use a remote public node when transacting, it is leaked. It is not however "broadcast" in the tx. I don't understand how running your own node is better for privacy when the transaction has to be broadcast Because when you create ...
