This week, we're reading about Mimblewimble, a more private version of the bitcoin transaction model that uses less storage: https://download.wpsoftware.net/bitcoin/wizardry/mimblewimble.pdf
You may also want to read about GRIN, an implementation of MimbleWimble, in this short article: https://medium.com/novamining/grin-testnet-is-live-98b0f8cd135d for some extra context.
Read the paper beforehand. Bring your lunch, questions and comments to Crypto NYC in Tribeca, where we'll talk through it together.
All levels of experience are welcome. No coding required. We're here to learn from each other!
