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 prime of the LTC 0.21 launch codebase (see July replace), so this month started with me merging the pockets code. It seems that loads 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 tip end result was even cleaner than we had with 0.18 although, so this turned out to be a superb factor, regardless of requiring the additional effort 🙂

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

Except for that, I had numerous bugs and exams 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 overview. On that be aware…

Opinions & Audits

I’m working very carefully with one of many Quarkslab auditors now. She has been going over the code and is within the preliminary levels of testing. We had 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 prime 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 loads like herding cats), then I anticipate we’ll have the ability to have 0.21 launched by my subsequent replace. It will embody, amongst many different issues, help 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 slicing the discharge for MWEB (which I’m calling 0.22-ish till somebody offers me an official launch quantity). The discharge date for 0.22-ish shall 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 reside (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 totally funded! 💰 🤑 💵

All extra donations collected will proceed to fund me for future improvement 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 & mild purchasers, and far, way more. So nonetheless chip in 6 every time you possibly can 🙏
