In the coming surveillance world Privacy is a commodity and Bitcoin wont succeed without layer 1 privacy - btc maximalists should donate to David Burkett.
litecoin has the same codebase as bitcoin and its now getting a formidable level of privacy at its base-layer. Some form of Base layer Privacy is CRITICAL for bitcoin if it’s going to succeed, there’s no way around it it. Whenever it’s brought up, bitcoin core devs sort of beat around the bush and say there’s privacy on lightning network or on liquid - and that simply won’t be good enough. So I’m thinking litecoin getting mimblewimble could pretty much you going to go the way litecoin getting segwit did. If litecoin can successfully implement mimblewimble and it demonstrates a solid level of privacy, I think it’s possible we will see bitcoin core add it to bitcoin. So mimblewimble is not only important for litecoin but also bitcoin. In a way litecoin development could contribute in a major way to bitcoin core development.
