David Burkett, who acted as the lead developer working to integrate MimbleWimble onto the Litecoin network, came up with some exciting details. In an official blog post, he mentioned discovering a new way to support “non-interactive” transactions in MW.
The official post reads as
“The biggest news from January is that I’ve found a way to support non-interactive transactions in Mimblewimble! The greatest difficulty with using MW is the need for the sender and receiver to communicate, which requires the receiver to be online when sending. My proposal, along with an updated version of the write-up that will be released soon, eliminates that need.”
Burkett further explains that his proposal would remove the hindrance faced by the users, and it will also reduce the maintenance requirements needed in the longer run. The project also mentions reception through cold-storage, which would make hardware wallets a lot easier to support.
To support atomic updates over multiple tables, Burkett is planning to create a robust database framework with transactional potential. He also mentioned that the block database querying and updates have already implemented, and the database is now “coin-agnostic” and has been “partially tested using LTC-specific header and block models.”
The developers are aiming to implement rules regarding LTC EB during February. This will involve validation and a set of exhaustive tests. These tests will be the most significant part of the updated code.
Once it finished, Burkett has plans to work on the API used by EP to allow the team to begin the integration of “libmw” to the current LTC codebase.
He further commented that he is going to focus on getting a new one-sided tx proposal through a thorough review. In case no severe security concern is found during the process, he will make a LIP to get feedback from the community.during the further implementation.
