MimbleWimble is a privacy technology that has been implemented in a few cryptocurrencies - Grin, Beam and epic.cash (not yet live).  MimbleWimble prevents a third party from seeing 1) the sender's address, 2) the receiver's address and 3) the amount of the transaction.  In short, nothing is readable - a transaction is between the parties involved, and that's it.

A Brief History of MimbleWimble White Paper

In Aug. 2016, Someone called Tom Elvis Jedusor (Voldemort's French name in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter book series) placed the original MimbleWimble white paper on a bitcoin research channel, and then disappeared.

Tom's white paper "Mimblewimble" (a tongue-tying curse used in "The Deathly Hallows") was a blockchain proposal that could theoretically increase privacy, scalability and fungibility.

In Oct. 2016Andrew Poelstra, a mathematician at Blockstream, wrote a precise paper, made precise Tom's original idea, and added further scaling improvements on it.

A few days later, Ignotus Peverell (name also came from "Harry Potter", the original owner of the invisibility cloak, if you know the Harry Potter characters) started a Github project called Grin (Yes! This project.), and began turning the MimbleWimble paper into something real.

And in Mar. 2017Ignotus Peverell posted a technical introduction to MimbleWimble and Grin on Github.

Since then, Grin has grown into a working blockchain developed by various members of the community, and after several stages of development, will launch Jan. 2019.

That's the interesting story of MimbleWimble/Grin white paper. Here are the three parts of them:
