How is it that many of the current blockchains lack privacy?
And why is Beam and Mimblewimble the solution?


Most blockchains lack a confidentiality network, and that's why Beam, together with Mimblewimble technology, offer an outlet for users who want to enjoy total privacy in every financial move

The Mimblewimble technology has some characteristics that make it unique when presenting security and confidentiality to the user, some of these are:


1- if the input is spent on the output, the values ​​are not stored and are mutually canceled
2- No reusable or identifiable addresses
3- Use of blinding to hide values
4- You do not need to store all the verified data
5-They do not use a ring signature

All these unique features allow more confidentiality to the user and likewise allows free exchange

What is the benefit of having the ability to choose levels of privacy according to the use case?


Beam together with Mimblewimble technology allow users to have full control over the data they want to "share"

This brings immense benefits to the user, some of them are:

1- Personal and family security: At the time of making a transaction where your information has not been protected, personal risks are generated, whether of theft, extortion, etc. since the criminal has access to his financial movements and estimates an idea of ​​the capital of the victim
2- Possible Hacks
3- Financial independence


How does allowing smaller blocks increase performance and scalability (Mimblewimble)?

The structure is faster, and stable. Decreases the load and storage that must be done in the system. Having smaller blocks can be explained as a transaction with the least number of intermediaries to reach their final recipient
