Recent News

Monero’s CCS-funded atomic swaps project, Farcaster, has released their April report.

Monero contributor John Foss has a Monero newsletter of his own. This newsletters differs from the Revuo in a few ways. Namely covers more content (such as popular memes and images), and is on Medium. If you want a less news-focused and more community-centered look at Monero (though they do have news) then check them out.

Haveno, the Bisq fork that has Monero as a base currency, now has two sponsors, Samourai Wallet and Cake Wallet.

Kraken now allows for small XMR purchases via ACH so users don’t have to wait several days for a wire transfer to go through.

Below you can find recent CCS proposal ideas open for discussion.

CCS Proposals Need Funding

None. All funded. :) But keep a look out for proposals in the future, or donate to the General Fund (donation address at the bottom of the Revuo).
