08 February 2019   468

Representatives of the Litecoin Foundation together with the developers of Beam  cryptocurrency are exploring the possibility of integrating MimbleWimble technology into Litecoin.

We have started exploration towards adding privacy and fungibility to Litecoin by allowing on-chain conversion of regular LTC into a Mimblewimble variant of LTC and vice versa. Upon such conversion, it will be possible to transact with Mimblewimble LTC in complete confidentiality.
