2020 marches on, one other month has handed and with it a brand new replace to the Litecoin MimbleWimble (MW) proposal has been revealed, so let’s bounce into it.

Burkett the lead developer of the mission has reported in his newest weblog submit that he has “constructed out a purposeful testing framework that builds legitimate headers, blocks, and transactions”, this has been used to conduct “(largely) full end-to-end block validation assessments”.

Steps have additionally been taken in direction of integrating the work achieved to this point throughout the Litecoin Codebase, beginning with ConnectBlock logic, which because the title suggests:

“Is the half the place blocks are validated to make sure legitimate UTXOs are being spent, no double spends, and so on, and can also be answerable for truly including the blocks to the chain.”

As this work has simply begun it’s but to be revealed though as Burkett writes he’s aiming on making it publicly accessible on GitHub by subsequent month, probably in time for the MW Could replace.

“I haven’t created the repo for this portion but, however will attempt to get that out on github someday within the subsequent few weeks, as soon as I’ve had the prospect to wash the code up a bit.”

Though Burkett is hesitant on the following steps after ConnectBlock, he’s clear that Could will largely contain ‘continued integration with the LTC codebase, and much extra testing’. As for Grin++, the crew has simply launched the primary non beta launch candidate they’re calling v1.0.0, an enormous step ahead for the soundness of the protocol.
