Want to learn more about privacy in #DigiByte and how #Dandelion is going to impact it?
Here's a bit of a write-up I've done about it, why you should be interested, what it does, and how you can help test this out for 6.17.3 release.https://t.co/agizySjDKw

In a Medium post, DigiByte’s Josiah Spackman explains: “Dandelion helps to protect your physical privacy by making it significantly harder to identify where your transaction came from. This prevents people from using the IP address that a transaction came from to attempt to locate you. Dandelion does not make transactions private in the way that RingCT (Monero)or zkSNARKs (ZCash) would, however it does help DigiByte take a major step forward towards protecting the privacy and security of our users.”
The DigiByte block timing will remain at 15 seconds, he insists.
There is currently no ETA on the implementation going mainstream, he adds. “We have, however, been testing builds and are currently working on the DigiByte “mainnet”, based on the latest 6.17.2 release of DigiByte Core,” Spackman comments.
