|about->decentralization_para||Monero is committed to providing the highest degree of decentralization in both network security and code development. Its Proof of Work algorithm prevents specialized mining hardware from dominating the network and allows for fair distribution of block rewards. Additionally, Monero's development and research are conducted via global collaboration, and the project is carried out with utmost transparency. Each development decision is open to public discussion, and every major developer meeting is published online.||門羅幣致力於提供最大程度的去中心化。使用門羅幣時，你不需要去信任網路上的其他人，且門羅幣並不是由任何一個大型機構所運行。低使用門檻的工作量證明演算法使得門羅幣挖礦可以在一般的電腦中進行，這使得購買大量的挖礦算力變得更困難。透過 I2P 連線的節點可以降低揭露交易敏感資訊與通訊審查的風險，開發決策是非常透明化的公開討論，開發者會議紀錄也是完全公開在線上提供大家閱覽的。|
You can have much more control if you want to. Monero gives the possibility to create multiple accounts, each containing multiple subaddresses, useful if you want to control multiple accounts. For example, you may want to have an @account for receiving donations and another one for your daily use. That will allow you to easily monitor incoming funds to your 'donations' account, without mixing it with your primary account.
|accepting->clicreateaccount||To create an account, simply run this command:|
|accepting->clicreateaccount1||Now you have another account separated from your primary one. You can switch anytime between accounts.|
When you create your wallet for the first time, an @address will be automatically shown to you. That's your primary address. If you want, you can simply use that address to receive payments. You should be concerned about who knows about this address (since one address in different locations can be associated), but you do not need to worry about blockchain observers watching transactions to this address like with Bitcoin. A friend can send transactions to the same address without reduced privacy.
As you can see from the picture above, every account has an index number that you can use to switch from one account to the other using the command `account switch [index]`. For example, using the picture above as reference, if you would like to switch to the 'Donations' account to monitor it, you can do so by giving your CLI this command `account switch 1`. Now you are sitting on your 'Donations' account and you can start using it right away.
Every account can host a virtually infinite amount of subaddresses. These work exactly like a normal address and you can create as many as you want and use them to receive XMR to the account they are linked to. To create a new subaddress for an account, use the command:
|accepting->cliinstructions||Instructions for the CLI|
Note that the instructions below are just the minimal necessary to create and use accounts/subaddresses. The CLI offer more capillary ways to handle accounts and the wallet in general. Use the command 'help' to list all the available options.
To receive XMR you only need to provide the payer with an @address where they can send funds to. Most of the time it's easier to just share a QR code and let the payer scan it, instead of copy-pasting the alphanumeric string. With the GUI every generated address come with its QR code. Make the person scan the QR code with the Monero @wallet on their phone and receive your XMR in minutes. Remember you can generate as many addresses (subaddresses) as you want. This is useful if you want to keep funds separated for any reason.

|accepting->guimerchant||Merchants will probably find more convenient to use the 'Merchant' page (screenshot below), which is explained in detail in the 'Merchant view' section of|
This is a POS-like page that merchant can easily use to set the amount of XMR to receive. If the 'Sale tracker' option is enabled, you will see the payments while they arrive in real time in your wallet, along with the number of confirmations.
|accepting->guiol||Go to the 'Receive' page and create/select the address where you want to receive your coins.|
|accepting->guiol1||Share the address composed by letters and numbers to the person you want to receive coins from. You probably prefer to use the more user friendly QR code.|
|accepting->guiol2||If you want to specify the amount to receive, go to the 'Merchant' page (after you selected in the 'Receive' page the @account that will be used to receive XMR).|
|accepting->guiol3||Insert the amount to receive, then share with the payer the payment URL or the QR code. If you want to track the payment in real time, tick the 'enable sales tracker' option.|
|accepting->guiol4||Wait until the payment has arrived and has enough confirmations (The more confirmations, the safer the transaction is. You need at least 10 confirmations before you can spend the funds.).|
|accepting->guisteps||These two pages give everybody the possibility to easily receive XMR following these steps:|
