MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard is a diehard Bitcoiner,bordering on maximalism – but understood, VERY early on, that MimbleWimble isthe future of blockchain protocol.
That’s not a “negative” for Bitcoin, which will dominatethe crypto store-of-value function for decades – perhaps, generations. However, if BTC does not one day implement MimbleWimble – which at this point, would likely require a contentious hardfork – MimbleWimble based coins could generate significant market share. Moreover, if cryptocurrency does in fact become ubiquitous in global trade, MimbleWimble would unquestionably play a major role, relative to coins with “archaic” crypto technology.
To that end, Chris believes most of crypto’s top devs are building MimbleWimble applications – such as the atomic swaps the MWCteam is working hard on, to implement in the not-too-distant future. Top devs are aware of the cutting edge - and in crypto, the pace of technology development is faster than any before it. So, if they are shifting their focus from Bitcoin-based to MimbleWimble-based blockchain technology, it would be wise to follow their lead.
Fellow “MimbleWimbleTrinity” members Beam and Grin are terrible investment vehicles, given their extremely unfavorable financial and governance characteristics. But their devs are on the frontier of crypto technology, which is likely why Beam (notGrin) was listed today by the very selective Binance exchange for listing.
On November 11th, MainNet will launch forMWC – created specifically to reward Bitcoin holders via the FREE airdrop 30%of lifetime supply is being distributed in; as well as an additional 10% viathe “MWC HODL” program we will shortly publish details on. Moreover, its scarcity, and significantly less inflationary schedule, should make it the “apples-to-apples” MimbleWimble favorite– particularly when considering how much technological innovation its devs have ALREADY accomplished (advanced GUI wallet, cold store system, atomic swap development), before MainNet has even launched.
MWC will likely start trading on exchanges around the time of the tentatively scheduled December 11th launch ofairdrop claims – and when it does, I expect Binance, and ALL major exchanges,to rapidly take notice of the BEST MimbleWimble coin.
The MWC airdrop registration ended July 19th, with MainNet launch tentatively scheduled for November 11th, 2019, and claims on December 11th, 2019. A total of 148,474 Bitcoin registered – roughly 1% of the entire BTC float - yielding an MWC/BTC ratio of roughly 40.41.
