Monero (XMR) vs Bitcoin

Untraceable like DASH, Monero is gaining its popularity due to the neat balance of privacy, security and speed of transaction.

It is based on CryptoNote - an application layer protocol that allows to group the sender's output with several other's outputs to obfuscate blockchain and completely hide those who actually sent the transactions.

Despite the obvious strength observed in the Monero privacy preserving feature the whole XMR network has relatively low hash rate, currently less than 100 MH/s. This is an Achilles' heel which allows to launch not expensive enough an isolation attack against end-user node and can actually or potentially lead to downfall of the coin. So, anyone investing in Monero should be aware of this risk.
