Is it just me or did it get awfully quiet in the corner where LibertyCoin is sitting? After the recent internal fireworks, I really expected something big. But that doesn’t mean they have been sitting on their hands either, so let’s take a look at what’s going on.
The biggest concern about LibertyCoin is the anonymity featured the users were promised a long time ago. Several people have already claimed to either implement it for a bounty, or finish up the coding for a bounty. So far, no cookies.
But it seems like a solution is looming on the horizon. Bitsa, a BitcoinTalk community member, offered to implement ZeroCoin in the LibertyCoin protocol. Not out of the goodness of his heart, but in exchange for the old bounty (7 Bitcoin + 30k XLB).
Now I’m not sure how many of you actually remember this, but ZeroCoin is a project abandoned by the original developers weeks ago. Basically, it’s unfinished, untested, and clearly not working product at this point in time.
I’m not being cynical here, but I would be incredibly surprised if 1 person can pull off a project a team of developers couldn’t finish. Then again, this little Crypto world of ours is known for its surprises, and stranger things have happened over the years…
The current ETA for implementing ZeroCoin in the LibertyCoin protocol is about a week, so we should hopefully see some results by next Wednesday. We will keep you posted as we receive more information about the implementation.
