We are going to hardfork our testnet network to add the new Bitcoin-based Bulletproofs protocol improvement on CT and RingCT transactions.
Internal tests have shown a reduction in transaction size of up to 70%!
Why sacrifice scalability for privacy when you can have both? RingCT + Bulletproofs + Bitcoin Codebase is where it's at!

Interview With Robert Edwards, Particl’s New Senior Developer
On the 2nd of December 2018, Particl hired a new senior developer, Robert Edwards. I’ve had the chance to have several back and forths with him, and have asked him a few questions to let you all know a bit more about our new fellow Particl family member! You can follow him on the following platforms:
Learn how we are building the decentralized eCommerce layer of the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency industry by taking all middlemen out of the equation and making buying and selling stuff for crypto as easy and affordable as it should.
"The path to mainstream adoption of the crypto independent economy it seeks to create cannot rely on the centralized infrastructure model of the old global fiat economy."
