Steven Zeiler presented an advanced hands-on lecture at BIT walking attendees through the steps of setting up their own Monero node and remotely connecting to a node from their mobile wallet. After one short hour, we were all passing around Monero from our computers to our phones just as easily as we would send bitcoin.
The advantage to using Monero is privacy. Bitcoin addresses are trackable by anyone. The blockchain stores the addresses involved with each transaction as well as the amount of each transaction. With Monero, transactions can be logged, but the amount sent is unknown. Even if a bad guy got a hold of your public address, he couldn’t see how much Monero was in there. The wallet we used was Monerujo and the full node software we used was the official client.
