BitGrin

Quick Install on Ubuntu/Debian

curl -sLO https://github.com/bitgrin/bitgrin/releases/download/2.0.6/bitgrin_2.0.6_amd64.deb && sudo dpkg -i bitgrin_2.0.6_amd64.deb && rm bitgrin_2.0.6_amd64.deb

BitGrin

BitGrin is an in-progress implementation of the MimbleWimble protocol. Many characteristics are still undefined but the following constitutes a first set of choices:

  • Clean and minimal implementation, and aiming to stay as such.
  • Follows the MimbleWimble protocol, which provides great anonymity and scaling characteristics.
  • Cuckoo Cycle proof of work in two variants named Cuckaroo (ASIC-resistant) and Cuckatoo (ASIC-targeted).
  • Relatively fast block time: one minute.
  • Decreasing block reward over time.
  • Transaction fees are based on the number of Outputs created/destroyed and total transaction size.
  • Smooth curve for difficulty adjustments.

To learn more, read our introduction to MimbleWimble and BitGrin.

Status

BitGrin is live, but still an infant, much is left to be done and contributions are welcome (see below).

Contributing

To get involved, read our contributing docs.

Getting Started

To learn more about the technology, read our introduction.

To build and try out BitGrin, see the build docs.

Philosophy

BitGrin likes itself small and easy on the eyes. It wants to be inclusive and welcoming for all walks of life, without judgement. BitGrin is terribly ambitious, but not at the detriment of others, rather to further us all. It may have strong opinions to stay in line with its objectives, which doesn't mean disrespect of others' ideas.

We believe in pull requests, data and scientific research. We do not believe in unfounded beliefs.
