Litecoin MimbleWimble August Recap Replace


This replace was written and supplied by Litecoin MimbleWimble lead developer David Burkett.



Final month I merged the node code on high of the LTC 0.21 launch codebase (see July replace), so this month started with me merging the pockets code. It seems that so much modified within the pockets between 0.18 and 0.21, so I needed to spend a couple of weeks redesigning how we calculate and handle MWEB addresses and keys. The top consequence was even cleaner than we had with 0.18 although, so this turned out to be an excellent factor, regardless of requiring the additional effort 🙂

For the code monkeys amongst you, nearly all of the modifications have been in: scriptpubkeyman.cpp 1, mweb_pockets.cpp, and Keychain.cpp.

Apart from that, I had plenty of bugs and checks to repair because of the merge, which I used to be in a position to just do in time for the auditors at Quarkslab to incorporate of their assessment. On that notice…

Critiques & Audits

I’m working very intently with one of many Quarkslab auditors now. She has been going over the code and is within the preliminary phases of testing. We have been in a position to get her synced in opposition to mainnet, and he or she additionally requested I create a testnet for them, which they’re now related to and experimenting on.


Whereas we’re now merged on high of 0.21 launch code, we really haven’t even launched 0.21 but 😀. I used to be requested to take over managing this launch, so I spent the previous week getting that launch code prepared. Assuming I can herd the opposite devs collectively (which is so much like herding cats), then I count on we’ll have the ability to have 0.21 launched by my subsequent replace. This may embody, amongst many different issues, assist for Taproot 🚀. Hopefully we will get 0.21 adopted shortly, and miners signalling for Taproot, as a result of the next month, I’ll be reducing the discharge for MWEB (which I’m calling 0.22-ish till somebody provides me an official launch quantity). The discharge date for 0.22-ish might be extremely depending on the outcomes of the audit, which gained’t be utterly completed till mid-October. So whereas we’ll stay optimistic for an October thirty first 🎃 launch for now, write the date down very flippantly in pencil, not pen 😉

All further donations collected will proceed to fund me for future growth tasks. There’s nonetheless a lot extra I need to do: Dandelion for P2P-level privateness, CoinSwap assist, syncing enhancements, Atomic Swaps, watch-only addresses, MWEB assist for {hardware} wallets & gentle shoppers, and far, rather more. So nonetheless chip in 6 every time you’ll be able to 🙏
