What we’re about

For those in Berlin who are interested in the MimbleWimble protocol and Grin cryptocurrency projects.

MimbleWimble is a blockchain format and protocol that provides extremely good scalability, privacy and fungibility by relying on strong cryptographic primitives. It addresses gaps existing in almost all current blockchain implementations. <br>

Grin is an open source software project that implements a MimbleWimble blockchain and fills the gaps required for a full blockchain and cryptocurrency deployment.

The main goal and characteristics of the Grin project are:

* Privacy by default. This enables complete fungibility without precluding the ability to selectively disclose information as needed. <br> * Scales modestly with the number of transactions, keeping only a ~100 byte `kernel' for historical transactions, resulting in a large space savings compared to other blockchains. <br> * Strong and proven cryptography. MimbleWimble only relies on Elliptic Curve Cryptography which has been tried and tested for decades. <br> * Design simplicity that makes it easy to audit and maintain over time. <br> * Community driven, using an asic-resistant mining algorithm (Cuckoo Cycle) encouraging mining decentralization.
