Monero and Bitcoin have one and very important features in common that there is no leverage built into the chain itself, which is made sure of the difficulty adjustment and ticket price. However, leveraging isn’t important against full proof answerability and equilibrium, which is like using an old idea in a new game.
Moreover, XMR coin is ranked amongst the top 15 coins of the global crypto market, and around the wee hours of the trading session today, it breached a 5-month long resistance around $79 but failed to rise above $80 facing a stringent resistance.
In this sense of comparison between BTC and XMR, if investors prefer investing in an alike security like the former, Monero is at par and is ranked amongst the top altcoins as well. The privacy, accountability, and the blockchain are much ahead and considerable than the resistance it is facing presently. This makes it a preferred investment in altcoins ranked amongst the top 15 cryptos of the market.

Listing XMR in mainstream platforms such as Coinbase or Gemini would probably be very bad news for BTC if you think about it.
