In-reply-to » @prologic Monero has stayed a little more stable than Bitcoin but it's still a cryptocurrency and it's still going to fluctuate quite a bit. It also uses proof-of-work algorithm so it still consumes quite a bit of electricity. I think the value of being able to send any amount of money, any time of the day, to anyone on the planet in 20 minutes (appears in 2 minutes, spendable in 20) completely privately with near-zero transaction fees exceeds the drawbacks.
