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 just a few weeks redesigning how we calculate and handle MWEB addresses and keys. The top outcome 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 had been in: scriptpubkeyman.cpp 1, mweb_pockets.cpp, and Keychain.cpp.

Other than that, I had a variety of bugs and exams to repair because of the merge, which I used to be in a position to do exactly in time for the auditors at Quarkslab to incorporate of their evaluate. 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 had been in a position to get her synced towards 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 truly 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 anticipate we’ll be capable of have 0.21 launched by my subsequent replace. This may embody, amongst many different issues, help for Taproot 🚀. Hopefully we will get 0.21 adopted rapidly, 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 will likely be extremely depending on the outcomes of the audit, which received’t be fully 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 😉

Notable Mentions

Ryan Wright is an absolute baller. Whereas I used to be trying to find a quiet avenue nook to dwell (see: background 18), he swooped in with a 100 LTC donation 2 simply earlier than I listed my home in the marketplace 😜

MWEB is now absolutely funded! 💰 🤑 💵

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