“Identical to Bitcoin, Monero is a decentralized foreign money. No one would say “Bitcoin partnered with X firm” if a pair people who find themselves within the Bitcoin neighborhood determined to do contract work for X firm. Make sense? So in abstract, a few nameless Monero neighborhood members have determined to do contract work for this particular person ought to this particular person be keen to pay. That’s the extent of it.”
Illustration or Misrepresentation
On one finish, the legislation agency’s lawyer claims that they don’t symbolize Zerononcense, on the opposite finish, the doc circulated by CryptoMedication names legislation agency because the consultant. On this, CryptoMedication acknowledged,
