I am not going to go into the background of what is MimbleWimble is but if you are interested please watch the video by the legendary developer Andrew Poelstra explains MimbleWimble in detail.
In My Opinion, 2019 Will Be Remembered as the Year of MimbleWimble in the World of Crypto.
While speculators are arguing over which of their altcoins are the best, the MimbleWimble community continues to grow. There are plenty of people who think privacy and fungibility are a top priority in money. If I had to pick one feature I do not like about Bitcoin, it is transparency. I for one prefer my money to be private.
