Litecoin MimbleWimble Alliance is ready


MimbleWimble-based Litecoin privacy is currently underway. David Burkett updated the progress made on the Litecoin Mimblewimble (MW) project.

Litecoin Mimblewimble (MW) project lead developer David Burkett recently reported on the project’s progress. In particular, it revealed the construction of a fully functional testing framework and the integration of the work done so far in the Litecoin code.

Litecoin Mimblewimble advances towards its final goal

In this sense, on May 1 a report was published in the Litecointalk forums, where it is assured that the project has reached an important milestone with the construction of a ‘Test-bed’.

Recall that the ultimate goal is to implement the Mimblewimble privacy enhancements on the Litecoin network.

I have created a functional test framework that creates valid headers, blocks, and transactions. Now I have some (mostly) complete end-to-end block validation tests“He assures in his report.

In this way, it appears that the plans are progressing as scheduled given that Burkett previously predicted that MW would be operating on Litecoin’s test network in late summer.

Recall that the development of Litecoin Mimblewimble officially started in December last year. This happened after months of planning that began with the announcement by Charlie Lee, managing director of the Litecoin Foundation.

Integration is in process

As mentioned above, Burkett also noted that it would have started integrating the work done so far with Litecoin’s codebase, initially focusing on ConnectBlock logic. This part of the code validates the blocks before adding them to the chain.

In this regard, Burkett in the report indicated that he was still not sure what he would be addressing after testing the ConnectBlock logic.

From what he pointed out, “All I can give you right now is a high-level plan for May, which involves continued integration with the LTC code base and many more tests.”.

Grin ++ Advances

Burkett also briefly updated on the other project, which is known as Grin ++. In fact, Burkett was initially known for his work on this project rather than Litecoin Mimblewimble.

He reported that David Tavarez took control of the development of the user interface, which is now much more enjoyable thanks to his work. He explained that this allows him to focus on certain particular elements.

He also enthusiastically informed the community of the recent milestone reached by the aforementioned project when launching its first non-beta version.

“That release has been tested with the help of several members of the Grin community, and will be released to all Grin ++ users this weekend.”Burkett wrote.
