#75: First GrinJoin tx 🔀

Covering Nov 25-Dec 01 2019


News

  • grincon1 slides and videos have now been published - if you weren’t able to make it to the event, be sure to check out the talks!

  • Wired covered the limitations of privacy in privacy coins. Well written, researched, and balanced.

  • Similarly, @joltz, creator of the /grin-security repo and a security contact, shared some thoughts about privacy in the context of grin and other cryptocurrencies. Must read.

  • @DavidBurkett announced the first GrinJoin transaction: 9 different transactions were sent via TOR to a GrinJoin server, and were joined together before being seen by the p2p network. Further work is required to make this an untrusted setup, but is a nice demo of the type of obfuscation of the transaction graph that's possible to do on the second layer of Grin.

  • The Grin page on Bitcointalk has gotten a revamp, courtesy of a grin community member.

News

  • The Block asked us some questions with regards to last week’s claims and counter-claims regarding Mimblewimble. Here is the full response, well worth a read.

  • Out of all the news articles that resulted from last week’s back and forth, perhaps the CoinTelegraph story won the prize in the “weirdest headline” and “actually made an attempt to research the story” categories.

News

  • In today’s sensationalist news, a claim was made that Mimblewimble had been “broken”, in what can only be described as a broken research attempt. This triggered a response by various grin contributors pointing to the factual inaccuracies of that exercise.
