Monero (XMR):

Founder: thankful_for_today

Introduced: April 2014

 

Originally launched as BitMonero (“Monero” means coin in the Esperanto language), this digital currency was forked from bitcoin and is based on the CryptoNote protocol. The founder, who goes by the username thankful_for_today, proposed some unpopular changes for the fork that the community did not agree with. After the resulting fallout, the Monero Core Team stared managing the fork project – and has provided oversight ever since. XMR can be purchased using www.shapeshift.io in conjunction with circle.com – using Mymonero.com as an online wallet. This coin has jumped 10.12% in just the past week.
