When this happens I will invest, right now grin has poor usability.
Grinbox (available in several wallets) already offers address-based transactions. The big step forward, in my opinion, would be to get major exchanges to support it.
Not sure about tor but i2p is being integrated https://github.com/mimblewimble/grin/pull/2932
Also tor support coming
I guess it’s up to exchanges and users which kind of addresses will be more popular then. Probably the one which will work out of the box.
i2p was chosen hastily, and turned out to be the wrong tool for the job. So for the wallet, there will not be any i2p integration, just Tor. re:when available - Looks like it will be available in 3.0.0
I didn’t follow closely enough, what was wrong with I2P? Or where do I read?
It’s not the best tool for short-lived connections, so it might work fine for nodes, but not for wallets. PR 24 in grin-rfcs repo has a little bit of the discussion. Most took place in the #tx-building channel under the grincoin.teams.wallet-dev team on Keybase
