Monero (XMR): A Reasonably Private Digital Currency
Monero is a private-centric cryptocurrency launched in 2014 to allow direct and anonymous digital payments without being dependent on a central authority.
Simplified: Stream isolation is about details. Not about IP masking. Your real external IP address is masked no matter what you do in the Whonix-Workstation.
To enforce stream isolation, you could experiment with the following commands.
When using Monero from monero-gui package you can use the following command below as is. Otherwise replace
monero-wallet-cli with the actual path to monerod, for example
DNS_PUBLIC=tcp TORSOCKS_ALLOW_INBOUND=1 torsocks monerod --p2p-bind-ip 127.0.0.1 --no-igd --hide-my-port
For more inspiration, refer to the related forum discussion: Monero in Whonix with torsocks for better stream isolation.
After installing Monero, please consider making a donation to Whonix to help keep it running for many years to come.
It is recommended to read the Money wiki page as it contains a lot of related information on how to make anonymous payments.
