I wonder if they will accept ETH or Steem next!

Steem has absolutely no privacy features yet so it wouldn't be a good choice. Confidential transactions were on the roadmap at one point but not clear when if ever they will be a priority.

To be fair, Monero's "confidentiality" has also been somewhat broken, according to this paper. The reason I somewhat jokingly suggest Steem is due to them already using the platform :)

Edit: Apparently, as some users have pointed out, this attack is mitigated against. I should have researched further before jumping to a conclusion based off one paper.

No, it hasn't. The paper just outlines the methods and basic metrics of old and known issues that have been mitigated since.

@antanst is correct, Fluffypony addressed this already a while back. It involved all CryptoNote based coins.

Thank you, I've added a correction. Interesting subject matter, will be doing further reading.


quite nice that you're so open to willing to rethink your 'position'. If any more questions there's always the monero stack exchange : or the monero reddit:

Although they haven't collected any rewards. It seems Steem is being used exclusively for the censorship-resistance aspect.

So it appears you have no idea what you're talking about. But nice "try".

Eh, so I misunderstood something I had read. I've now read the rebuttal, edited my above comment to acknowledge this (while retaining the original content), and we can all get along with our lives in a civil fashion, right?

That paper is BS none of that is current - none of that can work - all of it was fixed ages ago. FUD

I acknowledge this in the comment with an edit. To be fair, the Monero team only (as far as I could see) published an unofficial rebuttal as opposed to an official one with a request for correction. Surprised that the authors of the paper haven't issued a retraction/update of some form to explain its been fixed anywhere easily findable...

(I'm not one of the authors of that paper.)

As far as I know there's nothing incorrect in the paper that needs to be retracted.

You can see one of the authors of the paper — Andrew Miller — being interviewed by a journalist about it here: The journalist specifically asks "Say I downloaded a Monero wallet right now and got some and tried to send them for a transaction. How linkable would a transaction be today?".

Since some people posted speculations about my company's involvement in the research and our motivations, our company posted this statement:

By the way, check out the awesome block explorer that the paper came with:

Yeah well your mom goes to college
