Welcome To MoneroWorld

Mine on xmrpool.net to support the services of MoneroWorld.

Nodes

Remote Node With Monero GUI

To use remote nodes with the Monero GUI, include the node address under the Settings tab and be sure to use the proper port:

				node.moneroworld.com at port 18089
				node.xmrbackb.one at port 18081
                                node.xmr.be at port 18081
			

To check that the above addresses are working, please checkout this website. If their are no type A records in the list, then there is something wrong with the DNS server maintaining that node list, and should not be used. The provided link checks out the moneroworld.com nodes. You can manually check the other domains by entering them on the website. You can also use that link to connect to a specific node instead of a random one.

Example of a remote node with Monero GUI

Remote Node With Monero CLI

To use remote nodes with the Monero CLI, run the following code.

Collection of random open nodes consciously volunteered by other monerians:

--daemon-address node.moneroworld.com:18089

High speed node network maintained by Snipa, developer and maintainer of xmrpool.net.

--daemon-host node.xmrbackb.one

Largest list of random open nodes, unknown whether users are consciously volunteering these or not.

--daemon-host node.xmr.be

Hidden Nodes

Please consider only using this to push transactions and not full wallet synchronization (monerotools.i2p also has a raw transaction pusher):

i2p: gyzyfxa6y2ayqbycvci3dz2pc2tjf6rnkcttvb3aubtxawkrmg5q.b32.i2p
i2p: rmy5sqcoob4zdeqstjn6qgrvxqbk4ackrync77m437klegmqcitq.b32.i2p:18081

TOR Remote Nodes

Note - I don't check these, at all. No idea if they work...

				monerowinfamlvkp.onion
				pzlnznwgrjlgjsb6.onion
				qjz3tnotsv7xlxj4.onion
			

i2P Mining Route

For those that want to mine via i2p, you can with MoneroWorld.com. Instructions can be found at:

http://fjetvybcoerd3dukjfxf5i7aiihlt7b2twudooakp4qcdwzwr7ia.b32.i2p/

I will update this with a hostname once its registered. If you already know how to route via i2p, the mining port is:

How To Run Your Node

You should really run your own node!

It's honestly not that hard - it can take 9 hours to synchronize if you have a SSD and a good internet connection. Also, remote nodes are NOT reliable, a lot of times they just won't connect because the software wasn't really developed for this.

Download your node software from the official website GetMonero.org and learn how to run the software here.

MoneroWorld runs a script every 5 minutes to scan the Monero network for open nodes.

How To Include Your Node On Moneroworld

If you would like to offer your node up for inclusion in the Moneroworld Network of Open Nodes, you can simply add the code bellow to the launch of your daemon (and open your firewall), and the MoneroWorld script will sniff you out and add your node to the random list.

--rpc-bind-ip YOUR.EXTERNAL_IP.GOES.HERE --rpc-bind-port 18089 --restricted-rpc --confirm-external-bind

Run the script on your own daemon! The current version of the script is on a fork from some other user.

FAQ

What Is An Open Node?

The Monero software architecture allows for an easy way to use Monero without downloading the entire blockchain. This is called "using a remote node". Essentially, your wallet program connects to someone else's monerod (blockchain) program, a.k.a node, a.k.a. network service.

How does it work? The open node addresses actually point to many different nodes - when you request one, one in the list is selected. So if it doesn't work once, just try again.

It is negligently slower depending on the connection, prevents the need of downloading entire blockchain (which can be lengthy), and there is some information leak as detailed here. The best way to anonymously use a remote node is to use Monero with TOR or with a trustable VPN service.

That being said, no one can steal your Moneroj because you use a remote node. However, use these at your own risk.

What Is Monero?

Monero is the best cryptocurrency, ever. Seriously. 99% percent of the problems that other cryptocurrencies have, Monero has either fixed or the core team is working on fixing them soon.

Primarily, to me, the important thing is that Monero is fungible. One Monero can not be distinguished from another Monero. There is no transaction history. This is a fundamental principle of money. Anything that is inherently traceable (such as bitcoin) is not money - it is an asset. Privacy is a side effect of fungibility. Oh yeah, and the blocksize is scalable so Monero will NEVER reach a transaction limit imposed by the blocksize.

Monero is also decentralized due to the ASIC-resistant proof of work algorithm, therefore the network will never be controlled by a small number of entities.

Getting Started

Welcome! Getting started with Monero is not hard, but can take a couple of minutes. The Monero Stack Exchange is a great resource for beginners.

Get a Monero Account (Address)

There are many ways to get a Monero address. The best way is to download and run the Monero wallet. This program is available at the official Monero website. There are also excellent guides on the official website. For more information on getting started with Monero, please checkout this MoneroEric.com website or watch the video linked below.
