God will provide a way. Right now we are focused on education, marketing, organizational structure, cultural development, and networking. Most of us subsidize our income from cryptocurrency and the entire crypto market is in the slumps. We simply do not yet have the resources to immediately pursue a satellite launch yet, but we will when the market turns around.
Monero is secureMonero is a decentralized cryptocurrency, meaning it is secure digital cash operated by a network of users. Transactions are confirmed by distributed consensus and then immutably recorded on the blockchain. Third-parties do not need to be trusted to keep your Monero safe.
Monero is privateMonero uses ring signatures, ring confidential transactions, and stealth addresses to obfuscate the origins, amounts, and destinations of all transactions. Monero provides all the benefits of a decentralized cryptocurrency, without any of the typical privacy concessions.
"Iranian sources have told CoinDesk that some of them are no longer able to access the cryptocurrency swap platform ShapeShift, even when using virtual private networks (VPNs). As such, the sanctions appear to be already impacting Iranians who want to make lawful use of cryptocurrencies."
As a cyber security consultant and consummate tinkerer - I hope that the members and miners realize how vulnerable crypto currency ASIC hardware is, and how dangerous it is if you don't set up your network appropriately. If you are a solo Miner, have a huge farm, or anywhere in between I recommend you read through this link highlighting just how vulnerable an improper setup is:https://medium.com/@s3yfullah/hacking-cryptocurrency-miners-with-osint-techniques-677bbb3e0157
I would prefer not getting into a philosophical debate, so to summarize. Mocking Monero does not = making a mockery of Monero. Monero is a Cryptocurrency. XMR is a tool for people to remain private and transact wealth. It will also be MOST effective when it has been adopted by the mainstream and has a larger user base. Bringing religious overtones and mocking religions that a majority of the world find extreme feelings of safety, comfort, and peace from is a threat to Monero (the cryptocurrency) and it’s ability to become most effective through large scale adoption. Diluting the power of Monero (the tool) with bullshit religious memes and claiming Monero has a church makes a complete mockery of the project and the potential it has for the world.
It’s clear that many of you are either atheist or have been disappointed or oppressed by religious institutions. I don’t want to discount that. My plea to you is to deal with that in your own ways and not bring it to a cryptocurrency project that has tremendous power to change paradigms in this world. It seems to me to be misguided and clearly has been controversial and confusing for many.
Monero is already censorship resistant, to think the CoM is a shield for Monero is rather naive...Christianity makes up about 30% of the world, but ALL religion makes up 84%. Only 16% of the world is secular/atheist/agnostic. I am saying that forcing a “religion” into Monero as a cryptocurrency has the potential to turn away anyone who fits in the 84% regardless of what religion they adhere to.Building community trust and teaching people how to send Monero are such weak arguments for having a church. You can literally do those two things anywhere else in the ecosystem. The mockery is that a well meaning cryptocurrency project (a tool) has some group trying to say it’s now a project with a religious element.
I did, and I am refuting the hell out of: "Building community trust and teaching people how to send Monero are such weak arguments for having a church.

The mockery is that a well meaning cryptocurrency project (a tool) has some group trying to say it’s now a project with a religious element."There is no religious element. This is a fun excuse for me to have a reason to sync my wallet and churn a few times a week while hanging out with like minded Monero enthusiasts while doing so.
As a supporter of both CoM and Monero (but more so Monero, since my full-time cryptocurrency job is related to Monero analysis, education, and investments), this is why I have called for Xeagu to consider making some kind of public apology to help the PR situation
For good community sanity the church is needed. The language being worked inside the church is totally diferent from the language spoken inside the development of square code for Monero as a cryptocurrency.
Why wouldn't folks get behind ONE cryptocurrency with inflation control, that was actually useable and scaleable... and use that to fdeal with the big demon which is inflationary fiat and take over the world. Once that is out of the way, you then all go your seperate ways using the popular global currency to then go to monero, or litecoin, or dash, or even VergeCoin or whatever... and go buy whatever you want, do whateveer you want to do. It seems whilst we are all in little gangs, the big beast (fiat) which is why most of us got into crypto at first is still winning. One would almost thing their tactics of divide/conquer have worked.
