19 February 2018   2004

MoneroV is a hardfork of Monero cryptocurrency. 

MoneroV fulfills the long overdue desire for a truly anonymous, decentralized, finite peer-to-peer electronic currency. Individuals and businesses can transact securely, reliably and anonymously with low fees using MoneroV.

All Monero holders as of block 1529810 will be owners of MoneroV.

The MoneroV community looks forward to welcoming users, enthusiasts, and contributors to further enhance the development of MoneroV.
 

MoneroV Team

According to the developers, these are the features of upcoming hardfork:

  • Secured 
    • Decentralized peer-to-peer blockchain transaction consensus enables MoneroV to be secure and reliable.
  • Scalable
    • Using lower transaction fees and advanced modification to the core mechanism in the way MoneroV calculates transactions and balances, we are aiming to make MoneroV fully scalable by integrating the MimbleWimble protocol.
  • Private
    • MoneroV is truly anonymous and private. Sending and receiving addresses are obfuscated, as well as all amounts being transferred in all transactions. Your identity cannot be linked or traced to a transaction on the MoneroV blockchain.

As team plans, the fork itself will happen approx. on 14th of March. The x10 Airdrop of MoneroV coins to XMR holders is planned on the 18th of March. Light-weight GUI wallet and web wallet release is planed in June 2018.

These are the specs of MoneroV:

  • Coin Supply - Capped at 256 Million XMV. Smooth emission decline until minimum.
  • Circulating Supply at Hard Fork - ~158 Million XMV (10x circulating XMR supply as airdrop).
  • Proof of Work - CryptoNight (to be changed)
  • Difficulty Retarget - Every block. Adjusted difficulty initially after Airdrop.
  • Block Time - Every 120 seconds
  • Block Reward - Smooth decrease. Minimum of 6 XMV per block at 184,467,440 XMV in total emission.
  • Block Size - Dynamic, max 2xM100
  • Privacy - Ring signature / stealth addresses

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
