Updates on MimbleWimble progress: @davidburkett38, the principle developer of Grin++, is now working with @ecurrencyhodler and I on the design. We’ve been ironing out the mechanism of getting LTC out and in of MW/EB. Additionally found out the way to deal with MW charges in a clear method.

MimbleWimble (MW) is a protocol change that permits a handful of advantages, most notably confidential transactions (CT) and non interactive coin joins. Those that choose in to make use of MW on Litecoin would have their transaction values hidden and be combined amongst different community contributors, making it tougher for third events to trace and log exercise.

MW would supply a extra complete repair to the fungabilty drawback than CT alone, one thing Lee views as the one property of sound cash that’s lacking from Bitcoin & Litecoin. By leaping into MW it seems the group wish to kill two birds with one stone and by utilising extension blocks (EB) we’d additionally see a community capability enhance however it’s not sure how excessive the group will set this.

I’m only a crypto-anarchist who occurs to spend his spare time creating another node and pockets for Grin. My final aim is monetary privateness for everybody, and I’d love nothing greater than to see mimblewimble on Bitcoin itself. Getting MW added to Litecoin appeared like the plain subsequent step.

Lee in return for Burkett’s work has offered a 1.5BTC donation to the Grin++ safety audit as a present of help and because of these builders pioneering the MimbleWimble protocol.
