Monero is boring, right? Hard to trade, just seems to go through cycles. That all changed a few weeks ago when the email service SIGAINT started a Monero node on Tor. This was done to encourage darknet markets on Tor to accept XMR as well as BTC.
It seems to have worked as two darknet markets have already reported on reddit that they are accepting Monero or will be in a few weeks. Within a day of the announcement by SIGAINT Monero started an uptrend that just will not stop. Price has already almost doubled and shows no signs of slowing down yet. Right now XMR is the best performing altcoin on Poloniex, check it out.
This is not investment advice but I will be buying the dips as there is more action on Monero than Ether.
