The launch of the Grin crypto network took place in mid-January 2019. It was created with a focus on high confidentiality and improved scalability.
Grin is based on the Mimblewimble protocol, which was created in 2016 to improve the performance of the Bitcoin network but is also used in the development of other cryptocurrencies. Besides Grin, it constitutes the basis of the Beam cryptocurrency. Moreover, developers have begun to explore the possibility of introducing the Mimblewimble technology in Litecoin.
