First Grin Block Mined as Mimblewimble Privacy Crypto Goes Live
Grin, a privacy-focused cryptocurrency built on "mimblewimble" tech, has gone live on mainnet.
The blockchain intelligence firm says it has added zcash and dash to its transaction-tracing products.
Despite launching with considerable fanfare in early 2019, grin, the first cryptocurrency to test privacy protocol MimbleWimble, is showing no signs of life.
Privacy coin zcash has successfully hard forked at block height 903,000 in a planned network update known as “Heartwood.”
Following a report last week on the anonymity features of grin, one big question emerged: What is privacy in crypto, anyways?
Developers behind the cryptocurrency Grin agreed to hold off on changes to planned proof-of-work updates for the foreseeable future.
