Monero Merchant of the Week

XMR.to Logo

XMR.to allows you to make a Bitcoin payment with the strong privacy provided by Monero. This means that using Monero together with XMR.TO, you can pay any Bitcoin address in the world while protecting your privacy.

You send them Monero, and they send out Bitcoin. They even pay the BTC transaction fees for you.

Check back next week for another merchant that accepts Monero for their goods and services.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you want to get involved in making Monero better, but aren’t sure how, check out the volunteer opportunities below.
