What a wonderful work!
It’s very refreshing to see community members contribute to Grin in their free time and the page definitely looks more appealing to the general population. Thanks for doing this.
Here are some of my suggestions:
- Grin coin → Grin
- typos: Gin project, Unlease, Sound interesting, @2023 (replace @ with ©)
- I’m not sure I’d sell Grin as an investment opportunity as I don’t see it as such
- I’m not sure a
Contact Us section makes sense in the decentralized community. Might be better if we simply dropped the links to our communication channels.
Mimblewimble begins by combining all transactions in a given block into a single “transaction kernel.” This kernel includes a set of random numbers that represent the inputs and outputs of all the transactions in the block.
Kernel doesn’t include random number of inputs and outputs. Mimblewimble simply has the ability to combine all transactions in a single transaction so we can represent a block as just one transaction.
Next, Mimblewimble uses a process called “Confidential Transactions” to encrypt the transaction amounts in the kernel.
It doesn’t encrypt the amount in the kernel. Kernel has nothing to do with amounts really, in fact it has exactly 0 Grin.
Finally, Mimblewimble eliminates the need for addresses by using a set of random numbers as inputs and outputs in each transaction.
That’s also not technically correct. The reason you don’t need to add an address to an output is because the owner of the output creates the output and privately encodes the spending secret when they create that output.
I don’t think is more appropriate for micropayments than Bitcoin, layers on top of it will solve this.
- Slate: A command-line wallet for Linux that is ideal for advanced users and developers.
I wouldn’t call grin-wallet a Slate. Slate is an object that is passed around which is common to all Grin wallets.
Btw, the FAQ section sometimes doesn’t show for me, not sure why.
Over time I’ve come to conclusion that the most unique feature of Grin is its monetary policy because it’s a different monetary experiment than everything else (as I tried to explain here). You can’t try this on Bitcoin, you need something entirely new and Grin is the first to have tried that. The fact it uses the best blockchain format is just a bonus.
Again, awesome work and thanks for putting in the time to design this.
