All about crypto, tech startups and Linux users meetup

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Hey,

I am working in the IT Sec area and am very much involved in Crypto and especially alt-coins since a while.
Would be very interested to join a talk in Cambodia since, in the long run, I would love to move to Cambodia,
but there are some of us that do not, and never have, used facebook.
Is there any way to get onto this without this PII data distribution factory?

Cheers

According to recent reports, dark web users are dropping Bitcoin for new and emerging cryptocurrencies that are more difficult for authorities to track.

Despite it being quite tricky to trace and pin down actual criminal activities associated with digital currencies, there has been a substantial decline in the number of illegal transactions that involve Bitcoin.

Over the last few years, there has been a splurge of new cryptocurrencies in addition to Bitcoin. These digital currencies have cropped up from the necessity for added privacy.

As opposed to Bitcoin’s now-vulnerable open transaction public record, the underlying Monero technology conceals the identities of the senders and receivers, not to mention the amount.

Given the relative stability of Ethereum and Monero over the course of last year, perhaps 2018 will see even more dark web users flocking to these alternative cryptocurrencies in the place of Bitcoin.

I personally like Litecoin (LTC) and Ethereum (ETH) more than Bitcoin. I have some of all 3 as well as Bitcoin Cash and Ripple. There are too many alt coins around right now to keep track of them all.
