Monero 0 supporters are “worried users” and “proof-of-work maximumists”, according to at least one spokesman for Monero 0.
Their website says about Bitcoin profit:
We’ve come to the conclusion that the Bitcoin profit project’s strategy of constantly hard-forking is no longer a stable or reasonable strategy. We believe that Satoshi’s proof of work is the only mechanism for decentralized consensus. The so-called “network upgrades,” which are centrally commissioned by the Bitcoin profit project, are a Trojan horse designed to compromise the effectiveness of Proof of Work on the Monero network. Monero 0 is not a hard fork, it is the original Monero.
Monero Original (XMO)
Not much is known about Monero Original or the people behind it. The project has a GitHub account and sent press releases to several places. This press release didn’t contain much information, but it did contain a statement from the “lead developer of the Monero Original Team:
Monero has always been about freedom of choice, diversity, and a strong community. We offer Monero fans the opportunity to continue to support the true Monero and stay on the original Monero chain.
The HitBTC stock exchange announced that XMO credits would be distributed to all XMR holders (during the Hard Fork). XMO can be traded on HitBTC*.
MoneroC and the Bitcoin revolution
The last newer group is called MoneroC, probably it will be called Monero Classic again, with which three Monero Classics insist on one and the same Bitcoin revolution blockchain. So far there is no detailed information about MoneroC and the Bitcoin revolution.
Both the new Monero blockchain and the old one are being mined. Most of the hash power is still on the pre-hard fork-lockchain, which is pretty amazing. The Difficulty Monero blockchain without ASICs has dropped up to 80 percent.
However, complications may occur if the pre-hard fork-lock chain is maintained. There is no protection against replay attacks (replay protection). Monero users of the new blockchain could accidentally output moneros of the old blockchain and lose them – and vice versa. However, the problem should be solved over time, as was the case with Ethereum.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether one of the five new projects can gain market share and retain it.
