GrimmPOW is an Equihash 150_5 algorithm variant with some special tweaks to discourage both FPGA bitstream and single-chip ASIC development. Specification
Transaction graph obfuscation
Transaction signing/verification time
Raw transaction size
Min./pruned transaction size
Max block size
Grimm is a first modular platform with a new Confidential Parallel-chains architecture that provides the ability to create your own independed mimblewimble blockchain for any project or product. New blockchains created on the Grimm platform are called Confidential Assetchains.
>> Customizable. Allowing creators to change params in their own blockchain from algorithm to consensus rules. Possibility to choosing whether or not to receive upgrades from Grimm platform.
>> Confidential Assets. Possibility to allowing Assetchain users to create own assets on mimblewimble protocol like colored tokens.
>> Easy Blockchain creation Kit. Allows to create own blockchain without in-depth technical knowledge. User friendly.
>> Fast. Possibility to allowing one Assetchain to verify transactions for any other assetchain for significant increase TPS.
>> Scalable. Transactional data stored on the blockchain does not increase with the number of users, as nodes store only unused outputs and block headers. As a result, the weight of blockchain is reduced by several times.
>> Private but optionally Transparent. Assetchains operates on confidential transactions and uses a blinding factor. Only two sides are dedicated to the details of the transaction. But if necessary, the sender of the payment can generate and provide proof of payment to a third party. However, Assetchain creator can set non-confidential signatures by default.
We see existing conditions and systems of control, not governed by logic or reason but by greed, corporatism, subversion, bureaucracy, censorship, and inefficiency. We have a strong distrust for inherently flawed and corrupt systems. Our value transparency, free speech, privacy, and real decentralization.
