Litecoin MimbleWimble August Recap Replace

Litecoin MimbleWimble August Recap Replace

This replace was written and offered by Litecoin MimbleWimble lead developer David Burkett.



Final month I merged the node code on prime of the LTC 0.21 launch codebase (see July replace), so this month started with me merging the pockets code. It seems that quite a bit modified within the pockets between 0.18 and 0.21, so I needed to spend just a few weeks redesigning how we calculate and handle MWEB addresses and keys. The tip outcome was even cleaner than we had with 0.18 although, so this turned out to be a superb factor, regardless of requiring the additional effort 🙂

For the code monkeys amongst you, the vast majority of the adjustments have been in: scriptpubkeyman.cpp 1, mweb_pockets.cpp, and Keychain.cpp.

Except for that, I had a whole lot of bugs and assessments to repair on account of the merge, which I used to be capable of just do in time for the auditors at Quarkslab to incorporate of their overview. On that be aware…

Critiques & Audits

I’m working very carefully with one of many Quarkslab auditors now. She has been going over the code and is within the preliminary phases of testing. We have been capable of get her synced in opposition to mainnet, and she or he additionally requested I create a testnet for them, which they’re now related to and experimenting on.


Whereas we’re now merged on prime of 0.21 launch code, we really haven’t even launched 0.21 but 😀. I used to be requested to take over managing this launch, so I spent the previous week getting that launch code prepared. Assuming I can herd the opposite devs collectively (which is quite a bit like herding cats), then I count on we’ll be capable to have 0.21 launched by my subsequent replace. This may embrace, amongst many different issues, assist for Taproot 🚀. Hopefully we will get 0.21 adopted rapidly, and miners signalling for Taproot, as a result of the next month, I’ll be chopping the discharge for MWEB (which I’m calling 0.22-ish till somebody provides me an official launch quantity). The discharge date for 0.22-ish can be extremely depending on the outcomes of the audit, which gained’t be fully completed till mid-October. So whereas we’ll stay optimistic for an October thirty first 🎃 launch for now, write the date down very evenly in pencil, not pen 😉
