Beam Technology

This section assumes your familiarity with Beam goes beyond the user level and provides more in-depth documentation for developers and users interested in how Beam technology works under the hood. β€Œ
Initially, Beam started as an implementation of the Mimblewimble (original whitepaper) protocol and, from version 5.0, added support for a Lelantus shielded pool. This hybrid approach was named LelantusMW, and it is now powering the Beam Privacy layer one.
The Beam protocol is implemented from scratch in C++.
