  • 19:28 Only Global Anonymity Sets Are Truly Robustly Secure, Says Ethereum Co-Founder On MW’s ‘Fatal Flaw’

    Following Grin and Litecoin creator Charlie Lee’s responses to MimbleWimble’s so-called “fatal flaw,” Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin tweeted: “If your privacy model has a medium anonymity set, it really has a small anonymity set. If your privacy model has a small anonymity set, it has an anonymity set of 1. Only global anonymity sets (eg. as done with ZK-SNARKs) are truly robustly secure.”
    As previously reported by CoinNess, researcher Ivan Bogatyy claimed that the MimbleWimble privacy technology used by cryptocurrencies such as Beam and Grin is broken, and he was able to deanonymize 96% of all Grin transactions just by running a node at a cost of around $60.

  • 19:25 Grin Team’s Response To “Breaking Mimblewimble’s Privacy Model”

    An article titled "Breaking Mimblewimble's Privacy Model" has been making the rounds today (Nov 19), in which the author asserts that they have somehow ‘broken’ Mimblewimble and Grin’s privacy model. Grin Team responds by claiming numerous claims, including the title of the article itself, are factually inaccurate and listing their reasons as follows:
    1.Mimblewimble doesn’t have addresses such as those that might be linked to a particular Bitcoin wallet;
    2.It’s not possible to link addresses that do not exist. Grin Team has to assume that the author conveniently confused transaction outputs (TXOs) with addresses;
    3.The author is able to collect 95.5% of transactions on the network in a particular time period. Other than that “Output A spends to Output B,” it’s less clear what exactly is being identified here or what else the author is able to accomplish with this information;
    While it would be desirable to avoid leaking the transaction graph, the graph alone doesn’t necessarily reveal sender and receiver outputs. Without amounts, it’s difficult to distinguish between change outputs and recipient outputs.

  • 19:16 Lebanon Banks Set Withdrawal Limit Of $1000/Week For Accounts Denominated In Foreign Currency

    Lebanon’s banking system has been in shambles for quite some time, with closures across the country, as CoinNess reported last month. Now, the banks are ready to reopen, but they have set a withdrawal limit of $1,000 a week for accounts denominated in foreign currency.
    The move is intended to control the flow of new money coming in from abroad and clearly plays a harsh and restrictive role in allowing people access to funds from outside the country. And, while this sounds expressly like Capital Control, the banks are adamant that it is not and will be done in association with the central bank.
    This ongoing financial crisis and limitation of power on one’s own finance again paints an expressly promising picture for Bitcoin as a decentralized and global system. Not only is Bitcoin not affected by banking shut down and closures, but it is also intended to be borderless with there being a minimal barrier to sending and receiving money from across the world.

  • 19:00 Litecoin Creator Defends MimbleWimble: MW’s Limitations Are Well-Known, But It Works Well With CoinJoin

    Researcher Ivan Bogatyy claimed that the Mimblewimble privacy technology used by cryptocurrencies such as Beam and Grin is broken, and he was able to deanonymize 96% of all Grin transactions just by running a node at a cost of around $60. Bogatyy asserts that the flaw is fatal, effectively breaking Mimblewimble, CoinNess reported on Nov 18.
    According to Charlie Lee, the Litecoin creator, this limitation of MimbleWimble protocol is “well-known.”
    “MW is basically confidential transactions with scaling benefits and slight unlinkability. To get much better privacy, you can still use CoinJoin before broadcasting and CJ works really well with MW due to CT and aggregation. CJ on MW is a lot simpler and easier to use than it is on BTC/LTC. 1) MW has CT, so all amounts are hidden and there’s no need to decide on a uniform output size. 2) With aggregation in MW, there’s no need to sign the final CJ transaction. So one can't DoS by not to signing,” he said.
