Grin, a cryptocurrency that leverages the mimblewimble privacy technology, has just gone live on mainnet.
Named after the tongue-tying curse in the Harry Potter book series, mimblewimble is a protocol that fuses transactions together such that they are indecipherable – even on a public digital ledger.
While it has been in the works since late 2016, Grin saw its first block of transactions (after the network’s genesis block) appear Tuesday at 17:38 UTC. A second block was mined less than a minute later, according to one block explorer.
