Grin is a privacy focused cryptocurrency that became a darling of the blockchain community during the tough bear market. One of the two main implementations of the MimbleWimble protocol, it rekindled the maximalists ideals of the Bitcoin faithful: no ICO, no premine, volunteer-driven development.
The solid technological foundation coupled with the support of prominent crypto funds, ensured that Grin received a lot of awareness during the hype-starved months of the second half of 2018. The mainnet was launched to much fanfare in 2019, but the excitement far outpaced real progress. Despite noble goals and hard work, the project could not leapfrog the common network development obstacles. Infrastructure development, user acquisition, and merchant integration would potentially take years.
As the broader community realized Grin was not going to conquer the world overnight the project quickly lost much of its initial luster. Initial mining whales divested en masse – pushing the price lower, while the volunteer developers started to struggle to find funding.
The hype is gone and many of the speculators have left the coin for “Greener” (pun intended) pastures. The project survived the initial storm and now deserves, but still lacks catalysts to help realize its fundamental prospects. The technology remains top in its class, the core community remains as resilient and dedicated as ever, but infrastructure and community development remain too slow to deliver meaningful near term changes.
It was not realistic to expect Grin to become the Bitcoin with privacy overnight, and the mounting risks make that future ever so distant.Read full report
