How to Mine MoneroV (XMV): Complete Beginner’s Guide

MoneroV (XMV) is a private, untraceable, finite and secure cryptocurrency fork of the Monero (XMR) blockchain. A hard-fork split will occur at block 1564965 (~ April the 30th, 2018) when MoneroV miners will start to create blocks on the MoneroV network.

The new MoneroV blockchain will contain the history of all Monero transactions up until block 1564965 and all Monero coin (XMR) holders will receive MoneroV coins (XMV) in the rate of 1 XMR = 10 XMV after the fork.

  • Capped: MoneroV adheres to core Austrian school of economics principles by capping the total MoneroV coins that can be created, parting with Monero’s infinite coin supply structure.
  • Secure: Decentralized peer-to-peer blockchain transaction consensus enables MoneroV to be secure and reliable.
  • Private: MoneroV is truly anonymous and private. Sending and receiving addresses are obfuscated, as well as all amounts being transferred in all transactions. Your identity cannot be linked or traced to a transaction on the MoneroV blockchain.

How can I get MoneroV?

Anyone who holds Monero prior to the fork which will occur on block height 1564965 (~30th April 2018) will be an owner of MoneroV and will receive MoneroV coins (XMV) in the rate of 1 XMR = 10 XMV. As an example, if you hold 1 Monero coin (XMR) prior to the fork, you will own 10 MoneroV (XMV) after the fork.

Comparison:
Total Supply:
Capped at 256 Million XMV (Of which about ~5.85% in a coinbase transaction for active development).
Circulating Supply at Hard Fork Split: ~158 Million XMV (10x circulating XMR supply).
Proof of Work: CryptoNight (to be modified)
Difficulty Retarget : Every block. Adjusted difficulty initially after the split.
Block Time: Every 2 minutes.
Block Reward: Smooth decrease. Minimum of 6 XMV per block at 184,467,440 XMV in total emission until 256M max supply reach.
Block Size: Dynamic.
Privacy: Ring signature / stealth addresses.
