Hi. I am escapethe3RA, the maintainer of Monero Observer. This is my humble effort to contribute something of value to the Monero community and also give the outside world a chance to learn about Monero.

While it is virtually impossible to report on every story out there as it happens, I will do my best and use the limited time that I can spare to post consistently. You can help a bit by suggesting new stories to me via email.


All my contact details are digitally signed with my public key:

You can follow my step by step guide if you need help verifying my accounts.


Say hi, send feedback, questions or stories to the email address below:

Private XMMP chat (OMEMO) available. Ask for my address via email.

Thank you for contributing, I really appreciate the support! Emails and tips are pretty much the best way to let me know someone is reading and finds my work helpful, as I don’t ever intend to add any sort of analytics to the site.
