MimbleWimble Developer Reveals When Full Activation Would Go Live On Mainnet

David Burkett, the lead developer of MimbleWimble has recently revealed when WimbleWimble will be fully activated on the mainnet.

Recall that the MimbleWimble protocol on the Litecoin network was activated on the testnet on 1st October 2020.

According to Burkett, the protocol code can be accessed on Github, indicating that, any developer who has an interest in checking and running a testnet node can do so.

Burkett furthered that his main focus was making MimbleWimble on the testnet more accessible to regular users of Litecoin. These include building out wallet support, improving automated builds, and better documentation.

He also stipulated 2021 as a rough deadline for the full activation of MimbleWimble on the Litecoin network.

According to David Burkett while elaborating on the future of MimbleWimble on Litecoin,  there are some areas in the code that lack the necessary validation around edge cases, so, he resorted that it would take some time this month to harden the code and to begin the validation especially in the remaining consensus rules that were missed.

“Once I’m confident everything is working as designed, I’ll start looking for ways to break the testnet, to make sure we find and resolve any security or stability weaknesses,” David Burkett added.

He further promised that in the following month, he will be sharing a detailed plan of all the works that are needed to get MWEB ((Mimblewimble Extension Block) merged to the main repo, for miners and node operators to start signaling for activation in 2021.
