Welcome to the MWC Wiki!

If you are new here, check the how to get started Page or the Navigation on the right Side!


MWC is an in-progress implementation of the MimbleWimble protocol. Many characteristics are still undefined but the following constitutes the 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.
  • 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.

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