Litecoin developers announced the launch of a testnet with the MimbleWimble solution

David Burkett, chief developer of the Mimblewimble protocol implementation project (MV), announced the beginning of the integration of his code into the Litecoin test network created for this. Information is posted on the Litecointalk Community Forum.

Burkett announced the creation of an experimental model and that he was ready for comprehensive testing of the system.

“I created a functional testnet that creates valid headers, blocks, and transactions.”– said the developer.

In March, Burkett, who is also the creator of the Grin private cryptocurrency, predicted that MW technology will work on the Litecoin testnet by the end of summer.

The developer also started integrating the protocol into the Litecoin source code base, taking the initial focus on ConnectBlock logic. This piece of code checks the blocks before adding them to the chain. During May, he will continue to work on code integration and conduct new tests.

MimbleWimble is a PoW protocol with scalability and increased privacy. On July 19, 2016, a white paper of the project was submitted for the authorship of a person or group of persons under the pseudonym “Tom Elvis Jedusor”.

MW uses confidential transaction technology that completely eliminates inputs and outputs through the implementation of multi-signatures. MimbleWimble also uses CoinJoin technology, which hides the inputs and outputs of senders and recipients and combines many transactions into one.

Recall, the odious entrepreneur and until recently a supporter of bitcoin John McAfee recently announced the release of a new private coin GHOST based on the Proof-of-Stake protocol.

Forklog also announced the plans of the TRON Foundation and the TRONZ development team to introduce zero-agreement proof technology (zk-SNARKs) into TRX cryptocurrency and thus achieve a “previously unseen” level of privacy.
