Welcome to the Grin Wiki!
Grin is an in-progress implementation of the MimbleWimble protocol.
Here's an overview:
- 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: Cuckaroo and Cuckatoo.
- Relatively fast block time: one minute.
- Fixed block reward over time with a decreasing dilution.
- Transaction fees are based on the number of Outputs created/destroyed and total transaction size.
- Smooth curve for difficulty adjustments.

Grin likes itself small and easy on the eyes. It wants to be inclusive and welcoming for all walks of life, without judgement. Grin 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.
