MimbleWimble is a relatively new protocol that provides blockchain networks with the possibility to have improved privacy for users through Confidential Transactions. MimbleWimble has been firstly implemented by the cryptocurrency GRIN.
In January 2019, Charlie Lee informed on Twitter that fungibility was one of the properties of sound money that was missing from Bitcoin (BTC) and Litecoin. At that time, he said that the scaling debate was behind us and that the next battleground was going to be fungibility and privacy.
In the tweet he wrote, he shared his intention to make Litecoin fungible adding Confidential Transactions. A few weeks ago, Charlie Lee addressed the community on Twitter saying that they continue working on Litecoin despite the fud around the project. There were many users that claimed that Litecoin was an abandoned project because there were no code commits on GitHub. Furthermore, he mentioned that Confidential Transactions should be released sometime in 2019, but he didn’t provide information about the specific launch date for these features.
Finally, he said that he would be sharing more things with the community to have a fluent communication regarding the latest updates on Litecoin.
