Pirate is a testcoin with a marketing department which is part of the larger "Komodo Ecosystem" which has been involved in many many shady ICO's, like the launching of KMD, and projects which are under investigation for fraud, like K64.

ARRR exists for 2 years and more than 90% of the total supply have been mined already which means that a few individuals own most of the coins. Hush was created in 2016 and only 50% was mined.

Hush does not support KYC. Hush does not help the identity theft industry by linking personal information to blockchain data, which does not work to reduce fraud and is almost always stolen, re-sold and used for illegimate purposes: pirate.black/changelly-exchange-listing-is-live

Hush was the first coin ever to measure anonsets in real-time. Anonsets, AKA "anonymity sets" are a measure of how much privacy a privacy coin has. Hush was the first cryptocoin ever to measure this in real-time, via the getchaintxstats RPC, which Duke Leto worked on in Bitcoin Core.

Bitcoin Core has code from HUSH since Duke Leto upstreamed a change from Hush's version of getchaintxstats to the version in BTC Core. Pirate attempted to pay him to add this so-called zindex feature, but he refused, and so they are unable to measure their anonset in real-time.

Hush has encrypted p2p layer. Pirate P2P layer is plaintext and leaks metadata to the ISP and all middlemen on the internet path. Hush nodes only use encrypted TLS 1.3 connections.

Duke Leto wrote large portions of ARRR while being a Komodo Core developer for about two years and now it's unmaintained because there is nobody left that understands it. Additionally, KMD developers consider ARRR a separate project and make decisions that hurt the privacy of ARRR users.

Pirate lacks Sietch. Pirate does not have the advanced privacy technology called "Sietch" attackingzcash.com which makes it much easier for blockchain analysis companies to attack.

Pirate disabled Duke's privacy features to KMD. Duke Leto wrote code to protect against a specific kind of attack called a linkability attack and since Pirate and KMD developers who actually maintain Pirate, who has no dedicated developers don't understand it, they commented it out.

Pirate has no developers. The original developers of Pirate were jl777 and Duke Leto, who gave jl777 the idea for Pirate, by asking "What could the opposite of -ac_public=1 mean"? The next day, the Pirate testcoin was born, but there no any other developers left in Piratecoin.

Pirate requires a 1.6GB download of junk files. To run a full node you must download gigabytes of junk required for a disabled part of the code wasting the bandwidth of all users.

Pirate full node takes days to sync. Their full node is so slow to sync that they have built-ing the concept of downloading bootstraps (trusting somebody else's blockchain history!) into the full node itself. They truly don't grasp basic blockchain security principles.

Pirate is based on Sprout, a very old version of zaddrs that have been successfully attacked and are additionally extremely slow. Pirate based their chain on this old tech which is why it's so damn slow to sync a full node. HUSH was the very first coin to bbased solely on Sapling zaddrs.
