Why did I invest in Monero or xmr is for a very simple reason, it has a property Bitcoin does not have yet. Anom coins or anonymity coins gives you full privacy.
Many of the crypto user ( I am not calling them criminal) are libertarians and they do not like Government tracking them. So they want anonymous monetary transactions and now it is established that bitcoin transactions can be backtracked. So BTC is not anom at all.
Hence I invested in an honest project like monero or xmr.
