Proposal: Monero

As far as I understand it the Bitcoin stackexchange site is open to questions from all coins that are based on Bitcoin's source code.

Does this proposal plan to allow questions about other coins based on the CryptoNote source code?

Few examples of coins that could be included:

  • Bytecoin
  • Boolberry
  • DigitalNote
  • AEON

Although this proposal is focused on monero, we consider questions about other CryptoNote coins to be on-topic.

    In much the same way as Monero questions have been considered on-topic in Bitcoin, I don't think we should be exclusionary in our attitude. AT THE SAME TIME...Monero is looking less and less like CryptoNote every day. Once the RingCT integration is completed there will be such vast differences in our cryptography that it won't even vaguely be compatible. The community will answer CryptoNote questions because that is our origin story, even though it will eventually no longer be relevant. Commented Jun 4, 2016 at 8:32
  • I vote yes. Learning about other cryptonote coins, and Monero's relation to Bytecoin, was relevant to my learning about Monero.

I can not answer this question as it would require consensus within the site's community.

But I would strongly recommend to include the underlying technology (e.g., CryptoNote) in the sites scope / topic and therefore enable for smaller projects like the ones you stated to participate in this site. This will include a larger community and questions on one coin might be valid on others as well.

Go for it.



This proposal is for monero only. We consider questions about other CryptoNote coins to be off-topic.
