Litecoin [LTC]’s Charlie Lee: MimbleWimble is a good way to get privacy and scaling


Recently, a cryptocurrency known as Grin was launched in the cryptocurrency space. The coin grew to be one of the most controversial cryptocurrencies in the space within hours of its launch. The credit directly goes to the protocol the coin is based on, MimbleWimble.

The protocol was initially introduced to solve the scaling and privacy problems in Bitcoin, by an anonymous developer Tom Elvis Jedusor. Interestingly, both the pen name and the name of the technology are an inspiration from Harry Potter. The developer ensured that privacy would be the core of this technology.

More so, the protocol makes sure that apart from the information that is absolutely required to confirm a transaction, no other information is revealed, including the addresses involved in the transaction and the amount of cryptocurrency involved in the transaction.

During the sixteenth episode of Magical Crypto Friends, Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin, Riccardo Spagni, the lead developer of Monero, Samson Mow, the CSO of Blockstream, and Whale Panda, discussed the new privacy-oriented coin. Here, Lee opined about the technology that made the coin one of the most controversial ones in the space. He said:

“I think MimbleWimble technology is actually pretty cool. So when I first learned about it, seems like a good way to get both privacy and scaling and privacy that doesn’t make scaling hard or much worse which is very cool. So I’m yeah happy to see where where this technology goes”

This was followed by Riccardo Spagni aka FluffyPony speaking about Grin’s mining, which drew the attention of even the VCs. Spagni said:

“If you look at at Grin’s economic design it’s clearly designed to be currency. It’s designed to have this crushing inflation so that you’re forced to spend it so hodling is not really part of the economic design. So, they’re throwing money at it because they know that there’s be hype and that, you know, the moms and the pops would eventually go in to buy it.
