If you have been paying attention to the technology development of the cryptocurrency space you might have noticed the rise of MimbleWimble over the last year. On January 3rd, 2019, Beam launched its mainnet. On January 15th, 2019 Grin launched with much fanfare when they had Grincon on January 28th.
A few members of the Epic Cash community heard about MimbleWimble and its privacy capabilities. Intrigued they learned everything they could about the code. The Epic Cash community decided to take, what they felt, was the best of Bitcoin and add the MimbleWimble code. They have created a coin that has the emission rate of Bitcoin but the privacy features and the space efficiency MimbleWimble offers. I personally think this could shake the world of crypto.
"MimbleWimble is a blockchain design with no script support and blinded amounts. Like proverbial black holes, transaction outputs have no hair. This simplicity allows aggressive compaction and aggregation, resulting in a blockchain with much better scalability than any other design to date." - Andrew Poelstra
