    If you prefer your [Mimblewimble] implementation to have some VC flavor, there’s the Beam project, with a pre-sale and centralized team!

    If you're interested in cutting edge cypherpunk protocols you should be keeping an eye on Grin and Beam. . . If the tech works then it ought to be a pretty good way to make private payments.

  • Brad Mills on Beam Analyst at Alphabit Digital Currency Fund

    I don't think there's much of a difference between an ICO like Ethereum or a private presale like Zcash / Beam.

    It's still taking open source tech, forking it, changing some things and selling tokens for millions of dollars while also keeping tokens for yourself.

    Feels icky.

    I don’t quite know what to make of Beam. It feels a bit like a money grab but I’m 100% willing to change my opinion on that

    With [this] discovery, Grin and Beam are no longer privacy coins. They also have other drawbacks (e g. need to be online to receive payments, high inflation) compared to nonprivacy coins like Bitcoin.

    Always demand proofs of correctness from systems you plan to use. Be wary of k-anonymity systems, where k is picked by the system. Always ask multiple experts about new protocols; do not follow social media hype.
