The future of private transactions
“Mastering Monero” is a collective effort to distill intimate knowledge of the Monero blockchain, protocol, and community.
This book is suitable for beginners and experts alike, providing them with introductory information on blockchains in general, and an in-depth understanding of Monero, the privacy-centric blockchain.
Reading this book will help you understand how Monero works, the cryptography behind the protocol, and explore a variety of different topics gathered from actual users.
The focus of the book is privacy. How Monero compares to other cryptocurrencies and how it can be used as a private form of currency for individuals and businesses.
Across these eight chapters, “Mastering Monero” can take a reader from a complete crypto novice to an informed crypto citizen that knows how to protect his or her privacy. This book takes you by the hand on an exploratory adventure, showing you the world of blockchains and crypto, before taking you on a private tour of the Monero protocol and systems.
Illustrations throughout the chapters make it easy for readers to understand the content visually. Most of the important examples, stories, and statements have an illustration associated with them, eliminating the steep learning curve inhibited by advanced crypto and blockchain concepts.
