Monero is a secure, private, untraceable currency. It is open-source and freely available to all.
With Monero, you are your own bank. Only you control and are responsible for your funds; your accounts and transactions are kept private from prying eyes.
The power of the blockchain usually increases security at the cost of privacy, but with Monero's sophisticated privacy-centric technology, you get all of the security benefits of the blockchain without any of the privacy trade-offs.
By taking advantage of ring signatures, Monero makes it ambiguous which funds have been spent, and thus extremely unlikely that a transaction could be linked to particular user.
