Explaining how the “Payment Proofs” feature will work, the developer said the following ;
For traditional litecoin transactions, where proving you sent coins to an address could be done by just signing a message with your private key, and pointing to the transaction on the blockchain which shows the source address (which you just proved to be the owner of), and the destination address and amount. With MWEB, addresses and amounts are all encrypted, so in the case that you need to prove to an arbiter that you made a payment, a more complex proof is needed. This proof is described.
The price of Litecoin (LTC) reacts positively to the announcement
Furthermore, the developer noted that changes have been made to the (pre-MWEB) Litecoin code. A code review will follow after submission covering the progress of the developer’s work has been put out. The entire process will extend into the summer, and the result will contain some key new releases, the developer added.
Lastly, Descriptor wallets which will work around expanding on the wallet code, which was originally written by Satoshi Nakamoto, will also be part of the major deals for Litecoin Core. The developer concluded.
So far, I’ve added the classic (pre-MWEB) litecoin code changes to the v24 bitcoin code, and am working on fixing tests. I’ll then merge in the already-released MWEB code, followed by the new features listed above, submitting everything for code review after each step. This will be a lengthy process taking us well into the summer, but the end result should be a new release that’s up-to-date with bitcoin core, and will include all of the new MWEB features everyone has been waiting for.
