Justin also spoke about the reason for Monero being the leading privacy coin, stating that the coin offered more privacy in comparision to other cryptocurrencies in the market. He added that the systems on Monero did not have to worry about leaking important transaction metadata including the amount. Justin stated:
“Monero provided a substantial amount of privacy for all transactions and takes a respected approach to decision-making. It is a fair and decentralized coin like Bitcoin”

“This is a community initiative funded through the Forum Funding System [FFS]”
