It's weird. It seems many of the old school bitcoiners who didn't pile on Monero are now piling on Grin.

Why do you find this weird? Cheesy Grin was on the waiting list of many people

It may be because of this:

Mimblewimble has privacy features, but it also has the first really impressive, true scaling solution in crypto. Privacy-wise, Monero is probably better overall, but its scaling is abysmal, and neither coin can be treated as an impenetrable black box.

The name 'Grin' is apropos: It's the look on the whale scammer's faces when they pump and dump another shitcoin to the moon and back, leaving thousands of bag holding n00bs crying on the floor.

A historic perspective on the last sharp bottom and a flat afterwards (circa 2015).

2. A couple of months later some people were already predicting better things (32K, not 20K, but it is close; JJG agreed, BTW):

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178336.msg10658020#msg10658020

I remember my prediction back then for ATH was like $7k. Far from $20k that happened latter on. 2015 was murky crappy times. I stopped accumulating towards the end of year. But it would be silly now to be sorry for that. You cant do just everything right. Tongue

Grin seems to complicated. Exchanging files, both sender and receiver having to be online and actively do something, etc. This does not seem like a winner to me at first sight. Very interesting but also very complex.

Too bad they launched with only Linux mining software. The need for high level GPUs  for GPU mining with more than 4GB also makes this a rich Western World man’s game for now.

But any intellectual endeavour is good. That we may learn a lot from this project.

Satoshi(2)?

If it's true, it could be good for Bitcoin.

Mimblewimble is a protocol that was put forward by an "anonymous user in a Bitcoin developers chatroom" by the name of Tom Elvis Jedusor (the French name of fictional Harry Potter character, Voldemort). Mimblewimble itself is the name of a spell used to tongue-tie victims in Harry Potter. Jedusor left a link to a whitepaper in which he outlines that by using the Mimblewimble protocol, the scalability, as well as the privacy of the Bitcoin network, could significantly be enhanced.

You can now buy BTC at Coinstar kiosks in California, Texas and Washington.

What's the general consensus on Grin? Are we buying it or Is theymos trolling us again with another shitcoin? (remember howey) No address, no coins, sounds weird af. I don't know what to think about it.

According to the inevitability chart approximately soon Smiley
I envy you being in mexico.its 3°c here in uk

Just hold and accumulate for a few more years and you can do it too.

It's actually really cheap. Once you've bought a cheap place, you don't need to pay for accommodations. The main expenses are air travel and land transit. There are no property taxes.

Soon?

Soon takes a lot longer here in Mexico.

Everone's got lots of time. It's money that's scarce.  Cool

I just replied on that thread. Grin is limited to 10 TPS, which is abysmal, and not much of a "true scaling solution".
It reduces blockchain bloat though.

Now we support Grin. Grin
theymos:
Therefore, I'm happy to announce that the forum is now accepting grin payments automatically, probably the first site other than exchanges to do so. You'll find a link at the bottom of the evil-fee and copper-membership pages.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5098450.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=credit;promote

 I don't want to sound disrespectful to Theymos. This is his house, and we are all guests here. I'm grateful for his efforts in maintaining this community through myriad challenges.

 Having said that, I'm not sure what i think about this.

 The fact that we already have ASIC's being deployed for this project leaves me extremely dubious. I understand that spinning up new ASIC's for crypto-du-jour is becoming a regular occurrence, now, but am not entirely sure what Grin brings to the table compared to BTC/Lightning.

 I'm being much more neutral-bearish-jaded, looking forward, than I was in 2018.

 Fuck 2018.

 No lube.

 HODL.
