MWC significantly improved network stability with the release of Node 3.0. Miners, please upgrade immediately.
We are pleased to announce the release of mwc-node 3.0.0. It is important that all full nodes be upgraded to mwc-node 3.0.0: https://github.com/mwcproject/mwc-node/releases/tag/3.0.0
Yesterday, a malicious miner began mining on the MWC network. They used a sophisticated attack which combined turning on and off NiceHash contracts, rejecting incoming blocks, and not including any transactions in their blocks...
Some simple math, to show just how lucrative the soon-to-be-launched MWC HODL program will be - and just how undervalued MWC is, relative to Grin and Beam!
MWC is firing ahead on all cylinders - and likely, will be the FIRST BTC cryptodividend to EVER be launched at the BEGINNING of a major crypto BULL MARKET!
MWC's airdrop is over, with extremely bullish implications - which is likely why it is trading at its highest level yet versus Grin and Beam!
We give details on how to verify amounts in the HODL and excess airdrop funds. Full details are given on how to independently verify.
Claims for the MWC airdrop are officially closed. The total amount claimed was 5,400,037.409531322 MWC.
MWC's airdrop claim period is almost over - and thus far, every aspect of it has been extremely bullish for the near-future outlook!
The risk/reward of holding MWC at current levels may be more powerful than any cryptocurrency, per the simple math explained here.
A very simple comparison, showing why MWC is VASTLY more investable than fellow "MimbleWimbleTrinity" members Grin and Beam
The time, effort, capital, and use case leadership of the "MimbleWimbleTrinity" coins MWC, Grin, and Beam, is essentially unreplicatable with a new MimbleWimble coin.
MWC just launched the MimbleWimble sector's MOST COMPREHENSIVE COLD STORAGE WALLET SOLUTION - and did so, 3-6 months ahead of schedule!

MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard follows up his articles discussing MimbleWimble PRIVACY and SCALING upgrades, with one FUNGIBILITY.
MimbleWimble WILL be one of the biggest benefactors of the next crypto bull market - likely, more so than Bitcoin itself (in percentage terms).
In part 3 of 4 in the series on MWC and Mimblewimble we discus fungibility. Fungibility is an important property of money and often overlooked, especially with Bitcoin.
Today, Lead Dev Chris Gilliard published initial details of the pioneering "MWC HODL" rewards program - one of the reasons MWC expects to be the most valuable "MimbleWimbleTrinity" coin.
More than 5 million of the 6 million MWC registered for has been claimed in just nine days - and very bullishly, just one million or so has traded!
Claims process and Initial thoughts on the HODL program. We give some details on our thinking of the HODL program ahead of the full details next year.
MimbleWimble is the FIRST major technological breakthrough since Bitcoin and Ethereum themselves - for the FIRST time, superior to existing, legacy leaders.'
MimbleWimble coins are not about "privacy" per se, but broad, massive upgrades to current blockchain technology - and the crypto community doesn't YET understand this!
The MWC HODL program is a MAJOR discerning factor in the MimbleWimbleTrinity, that will generate SIGNIFICANT investor interest when it is shortly announced!
MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard publishes the second part of his four-part, MUST READ series about MimbleWimble - in this case, its massively upgraded PRIVACY capability!
Crypto may be the most "inefficiently" price market in finance - and because they are so misunderstood, the "MimbleWimbleTrinity" the most undervalued in all of crypto!
MWC's "post airdrop" overhang has been MUCH smaller than anticipated, a very good early sign for the BEST MimbleWimble Coin!
Andy Hoffman appears on Adam Meister's "1 Bitcoin" show, to discuss the state of crypto, and MWC's amazing progress!
This is part 2 of 4 in the Mimblewimble / MWC - Privacy. Here we go over privacy coins and talk about MWC/Mimblewimble. While MWC is not a privacy coin it has much better privacy characteristics than legacy blockchains.
The most valuable asset in crypto is Bitcoin, and the most revolutionary technology MimbleWimble. This is why "MimbleWimbleTrinity" coins MWC, Grin, and Beam have VERY bright futures!
With the airdrop claim process in full swing, the MWC Dev team published its first post-launch Roadmap update - with short-, intermediate-, and long-term goals.
MWC's airdrop claim launch, TODAY, will likely afford the best buying opportunity in its history - from non-fundamental sellers with no interest in holding.
Our testing of the claiming process is now complete and we are ready to open the MWC airdrop claims process.
The MWC airdrop claim process will likely start BEFORE the scheduled December 11th date - potentially, as soon as TOMORROW!
MWC, Grin, and Beam - the "MimbleWimbleTrinity" are SUPERIOR blockchain technoogy platforms - and thus, Maximalists cannot dismiss them as "altcoins."
MimbleWimble is so powerful, it can be viewed as a superior blockchain technology platform, privacy hedge, or BTC Testnet - take your pick!
In its first week of trading, MWC - by FAR, the best MimbleWimble investment vehicle - is already gaining significant ground on established incumbents Grin and Beam.
Given how rapidly MimbleWimble technology is advancing, it is nearly certain it will play an important role in the future of crypto. Thus, a "leveraged bet" on Bitcoin.
MWC's MainNet has been operating smoothly for 12 days - and today, welcomes its first two mining pools...FrostyPool and Ice Mining!
MAJOR advances have been made in MimbleWimble technology in recent weeks - that shortly, the entire crypto community will see first hand - but right now, are oblivious to.
All clear the MWC blockchain still in consensus the previous notification was a false alarm - see for full details.
After 36 hours of trading, MWC trades on HotBit at an $8 million market cap, compared to $27 million for Beam and $34 million for Grin. A great opportunity to close the gap!
Critical issue in MWC blockchain - will update with required actions. Earlier today in block 13548, the network went out of consensus.
MWC has MANY use cases - one of which will be, the Ultimate Bitcoin TestNet! Those receiving it FREE - or buying it at today's "early days" prices, can watch it grow, and receive HODL rewards for the privilege.
Response to the Breaking Mimblewimble privacy model article. We analyze the article and responses and summarize.
MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard refutes the comically FUD-filled "breaking MimbleWimble's privacy model" article published yesterday - as have others in the MW community.
MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard is interviewed by Rocky Palumbo, Introduced by Brian, the UK Bitcoin Master.
MWC was forked from Grin to be a superior investment vehicle. Why would you NOT sell some, or all, of your Grin for MWC?
MWC's road to becoming the leading MimbleWimble coin started with last week's MainNet launch - with a major milestone coming TONIGHT, when it lists on the top "MimbleWimbleTrinity" exchange - HotBit!
Andy Hoffman Interviews MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard one week after MainNet launch - and One Day before its first exchange listing, at HotBit.
In the first of a VERY important four-part series, MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard discusses the enormous SCALING upgrade MimbleWimble provides over current blockchain protocols.
MImbleWimble may well be the biggest crypto story of 2020 - potentially, rivaling the May 2020 Bitcoin halving. MWC will be right in the middle, as the leading "MImbleWimbleTrinity" coin!
Holding MWC in the upcoming privacy debate, could be as wise as holding BCH during the scaling wars of late 2017 and early 2018...and it's FREE, and pays HODL rewards!
Given the amount of effort, and incremental value added, there is essentially no way another MimbleWimble coin can challenge the market share of the "MimbleWimble Trinity" of MWC, Grin, and Beam.
No matter what metric one utilizes, MWC's is vastly more investable than fellow "MimbleWimbleTrinity" coins Grin and Beam.
This will be the first installment of a 4 part series making the case for Mimblewimble and specifically MWC (Mimblewimble Coin). We will go over the major advantages of the Mimblewimble protocol and explain in detail our thesis and why we created MWC.
98%+ of all altcoins are worthless. MimbleWimble is essentially the highest upside potential space in all of crypto, with the "MimbleWimble Trinity" of MWC, Grin, and Beam valued at less than $100 million cumulatively.
MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard is doing more for Bitcoin than nearly anyone in the BTC community. It won't be long before he is a household name, IMO!
MWC can be used to participate in potentially explosive MimbleWimble growth - or as a HEDGE in case it gets too powerful!
Grin and Beam surged the DAY MWC launched. Think it's a coincidence? I think NOT! MimbleWimble will be FRONT PAGE crypto news in 2020!
MWC joins fellow "MimbleWimbleTrinity" coins Grin and Beam, just as the space is on the cusp of understanding the technology's AWESOME potential!
A few moments ago, MWC's first block was mined. We chose the start time of 9 am UTC on 11/11 because it's exactly 101 years after the Armistice agreement went into effect in France at 11 am (9 am UTC) in 1918 putting an end to World War 1.
MWC's MainNet is LIVE, as of 9 am UTC this morning. Please read Lead Dev Chris Gilliard's impassioned letter to the Bitcoin community, on why MWC was built, and how MimbleWimble can make Bitcoin better!
Release of the full node supporting mainnet. As a reminder mining will begin at 9 am UTC on 11/11/19.
MWC's MainNet enabled 2.4.3 node is released, with mining scheduled to launch tonight, on schedule...Monday, November 11th, at 9 am UTC!
MimbleWimble is BY FAR the most efficient, scalable privacy protocol. Today's comments by the U.S. FBI Director coudn't more loudly trumpet the need for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to adopt it.
Just FOUR DAYS from now, one of the most impactful - and perhaps, popular - coins in crypto history will be launched...MWC!
With just one week until MainNet launch, MWC Lead Dev published an "all you need to know" update regarding MWC mining.
Grin and Beam are leading the altcoin sector's recent resurgence - a very positive omen for the FAR SUPERIOR MimbleWimble coin, MWC's, November 11th launch!
Brief update letting miners who wish to mine MWC from the start of mainnet launch the information they will need.
MWC has the potential for being one of the most impactful technological coins, and best investments, in crypto. MainNet launches November 11th!
MWC is "Maximalist Proof," as it's technology is SUPERIOR to Bitcoin's - and thus, MUST benefit disproportionately from BTC market growth.
With what is likely the commencement of an historic BItcoin bull run, MimbleWimble coins are better positioned to benefit than ANY subsector...and MWC, is BY FAR the most investable!
Litecoin and Monero are building MimbleWimble extension blocks, to try and create buzz around coins with dying use cases. Only first layer implementations, like MWC, have value!
Coverage of our analysis of the Litecoin proposals to implement Mimblewimble with extension blocks.
Bitcoin MUST address the scaling, privacy, and fungibility issues that have been ignored since 2017's FIRST scaling debate - and when it shortly does, MimbleWimble will be quickly understood to be the best solution!
Those ignoring MimbleWimble's FAR superior technology, will deprive themselves of potentially enormous profits - and, at the least, a HEDGE against perhaps the biggest existential threat Bitcoin faces.
Grin re-flippened Beam. This is at worst, neutral...and at best, bullish, for soon-to-be-launched MWC!
The "baby with the bath water" decline in crypto sets up the opportunity to profit enormously, when MWC launches next month, and starts publicly trading roughly a month later!
We document the first atomic swap on the MWC test network. This swap was completed between the MWC network and the Bitcoin testnet. We discuss the potential uses for this technology and future plans.
Yet another major breakthrough for MWC's developers, in successfully making the first testnet Atomic Swap transactions between a MimbleWimble coin and Bitcoin. Huge possibilities, just one month from MainNet launch!
Beam's supply passed 2x MWC's lifetime supply today - highlighting, yet again, just how financially superior MWC will be when it launches next month!
A deep discussion of the myriad reasons investors will find MWC extremely valuable - particularly the BTC community, who is receiving it for FREE!
Not surprisingly, Beam and Grin are two of the most sought after mining investments in all of crypto. When MWC's MainNet launches November 11th, don't be surprised if it takes over the #1 position!
Yet another example of the Bitcoin community being completely oblivious, ignorant, or purposefully against MimbleWimble - due to unwarranted fears, of a technology that could ultimately HELP it.
Andy interviews Chris about everything you need to know about the upcoming MWC MainNet launch and claim process - and gives unique insights into MimbleWimble and BTC
MWC is one of the handful of altcoins I expect to be a HUGE winner, as crypto becomes a MASSIVE, global asset class in the coming years.
MimbleWimble coins have been sold as hard as the entire crypto sector - despite having a superior use case proposition to 99%...that MWC will dramatically impove upon, when launched in November!
MWC is one of the few coins meeting the criteria of a successful altcoin - based on technology so revolutionary, it threatens to dominate the crypto space in coming years.
Beam's listing on Binance today is a major victory for MimbleWimble technology acceptance - and when MWC lists on exchanges this Fall, we fully expect it to be noticed quickly, by ALL major crypto institutions.
Crypto's greatest ally is TIME, as adoption WILL increase. In MimbleWimble's case, HOW MUCH time? Will 2020 be it's coming out party?
MWC is set to DOMINATE the exploding MimbleWimble space, for a variety of reasons described by Lead Dev Chris Gilliard.
We discuss the Beam/Grin flippening and what it means for MWC as well as the outlook for the future and early years of the project.
MWC is actively developing its code (including atomic swaps!) and negotiating with exchanges, as it rapidly approaches November 11th's MainNet launch!
VERY exciting things going on behind the scenes at MWC, as it approaches November 11th's MainNet launch!
