In just two days, roughly two-thirds of the six million airdropped MWC has been claimed, without a signal operational complaint - and while the “post airdrop overhang” has (not unexpectedly, particularly given weak crypto market conditions) lowered the price, it is encouraging to see less than 0.75 BTC worth offered on HotBit. In other words, most claimants are HODLing, and preparing for the upcoming details of the “MWC HODL” program. Not to mention, the opportunity to acquire it below mining cost, at a current market cap of roughly $3 million.
To that end, the MWC engineering team has published its first post-launch roadmap, highlighting its short, intermediate, and long-term goals. Clearly, the top priority is completing the airdrop – which yesterday, was announced to be ending January 2nd; and subsequently, launching the MWC HODL program – that currently, is expected to be announced in early 1Q20, and implemented in 2Q20. And lastly, implementation of the unique MimbleWimble cold storage system built by MWC’s devs, sometime during 1Q20.
As for the intermediate and long-term, it’s all about building, expanding, and testing MimbleWimble’s nearly limitless capabilities. However, unlike most coins, the long-term “roadmap” doesn’t matter as much as simply demonstrating – along with fellow “MimbleWimbleTrinity” coins Grin and Beam – that MimbleWimble technology WORKS. So far, there’s not a single reason to doubt it – which is why I expect MimbleWimble to play a dominant crypto role in the coming decade, and potentially well beyond!
The MWC airdrop registration ended July 19th; MainNet launched November 11th; and airdrop claims commenced December 2nd. A total of 148,474 Bitcoin registered – roughly 1% of the entire BTC float - yielding an MWC/BTC ratio of roughly 40.41…and currently, it trades at HotBit.io.
