Hi. I am escapethe3RA, the maintainer of Monero Observer. This is my humble effort to contribute something of value to the Monero community and also give the outside world a chance to learn about Monero.

While it is virtually impossible to report on every story out there as it happens, I will do my best and use the limited time that I can spare to post consistently.


All my contact details are digitally signed with my public key:

Thank you for contributing, I really appreciate the support! Private messages and tips are pretty much the best way to let me know someone is reading and finds my work helpful, as I don’t ever intend to add any sort of analytics to the site.
