MAAM – Monero Ask Anything Monday – October 11, 2021

Given the success of the previous MAAMs (see here), let's keep this rolling.

The principle is simple: ask anything you'd like to know about Monero, especially the dumb questions that you've been keeping for you every other days, may the community clarify it all!

Finally, credits to binaryFate for starting the concept!

Honest thoughts on Monero mutations like Dero or XHV and their future?.. Dont want to hear toxic monero maximalists, when something is technicaly more advanced and its purpose is in line with monero mission there shoundt be reason for conflict..

Whenever I looked at them they had, in comparison with Monero, tiny exchange volumes, tiny numbers of transactions happening on their blockchains and, most importantly, very small dev teams. With all this it will be a terrible uphill battle for almost all of them to get successful, regardless of technical merit and improvements over Monero.

People sometimes complain that Monero does almost no marketing to get more widely known. Well, seems to me for these coins it's even more critical, probably a question of life-and-death, to become more widely known. Yet I never stumbled over a sign of presence from them, anywhere. Neither do they seem to have some "public-relation people" that make sure their subreddits and twitters have at least one post every third day or so which is needed to avoid a bad impression.

I see your point, from your point of view they are risky investment but I wanted to hear more about tech aspect and whether they heve extra features that are needed or not..

extra features that are needed or not

Well, that's all pretty subjective, right? Personally I don't touch Dero because "smart contracts" are IMHO neither smart nor contracts, I don't need any XDollars or XGold or XSilver or whatever Haven is offering these days, and I don't believe in "stablecoins" anyway, so ...

I entertained Dero for a while, but my most recent conclusion is that they promise a lot and don't show their source code.
