How long does everyone reckon before we have a final release of Mimblewimble and will it be good enough to kill its competitors like Monero and Aeon?

I am asking with a tinge of worry hehe. I have most of my investment in Aeon.



One of the holy grails for many bitcoiners is transacting with the decentralized currency in a completely private manner. There are many projects being built on the Bitcoin network, and within the altcoin space that attempt to provide stronger anonymity such as Tumblebit, and other methods of privacy. Last year a developer who uses the pseudonym, “Tom Elvis Jedusor,” introduced the Mimblewimble paper which supports the concepts of both Coinjoin and Confidential Transactions.

Essentially the protocol adds a cryptographic ‘blinding factor’ to a bitcoin transaction’s input and output values which obfuscates the transaction’s destination and the sum of funds sent. Now the development team has announced that Mimblewimble is being trialed on the Bitcoin testnet and developers can build their own nodes which connect to what’s called the “Grin network.”

Hi there,

I'm putting together an evaluation matrix of all notable Anonymous/Private cryptocurrencies, and could use your help clarifyiing Mimblewimble/Grin.    Feedback including reference to something official (website, whitepaper etc) or Dev comments (or devs themselves) would be very much appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi, new to terminal and stopped this post. Am I able to just run the install and no further tweaks? Apologies for the newbie question. Eager to contribute to the grin project and just starting this journey.

edit: Been trying to us https://howtomine.co/2018/01/11/how-to-mine-grin-testnet/ but run in to all sorts of issues using that method.
