🧙🏽♀️ [Analysis] MimbleWimble: the good and the bad – Mohamed Fouda
MimbleWimble (MW) was a Bitcoin ($BTC) improvement proposal made to achieve transaction privacy. Nevertheless, it was rejected by the community as it required significant changes to the protocol.   Benefits of MW include: Better privacy for users by shielding transaction amounts and avoiding the use of publicly visible addresses It allows for smaller blocks and smaller blockchain data size which makes it easier for nodes to join the network The shortcomings of MW include: There is a need to have some form of communication between the sender and receiver It is more difficult to create multi-party transactions The transactions are not fully private and can be deciphered given enough analysis Other privacy maintaining techniques, particularly Zcash's ($ZEC) shielded transactions and Monero's ($XMR) Ring Confidential Transactions and stealth addresses achieve significantly better privacy.

ZCash Supply Snapshot
Y2050 supply (est.)
% Y2050 Issued
Ongoing emission type
Every 840,000 blocks
ZCash originated as a code-fork of Bitcoin, and kept the overall monetary-supply properties: block-reward halvings every 4-years, resulting in a total supply cap of 21,000,000 ZEC. While the overall supply is the same as bitcoin, the details differ. Specifically, ZCash uses 2.5minute blocks, generating 12.5 ZEC per block. Furthermore, 20% of the new coins issued in every block during the first 850,0001 blocks (~4 years) are considered 'Founder Rewards' and are allocated to the owners of the ZCash Company2. After block 850,000, all block rewards go to miners, resulting a total of 10% of the total eventual ZEC supply allocated as 'Founder Rewards'.
This is a number ranging from -1 to 1, which represents the degree to which movements in the two assets are historically correlated. Specifically, OCFX is calculating the Pearson Coefficient over the daily returns of the two assets. This is calculated over the time-range the chart is set to, and will be re-calculated if the chart's time-range is changed.
A negative number indicates that if asset A moves in one direction, asset B has historically most likely moved in the opposite direction. Similarly, positive values indicate prevelance of same-direction moves.
The Bletchley 10 is composed of 10 of the largest cryptoassets, weighted by marketcap. As such, it tends to track the 'large-caps'.
The Bletchley 20 is composed of 20 medium-capitalization cryptoassets.
The Bletchley 40 is composed of 40 small-capitalization cryptoassets.
Together, these indexes give good at-a-glance understanding of how large-caps are performing relative to medium/small-caps over the past 24 hours.
