0x1337f331 forks Haveno into PenumbraDEX

0x1337f3311 has forked Haveno2 into PenumbraDEX3, according to a recent Dread announcement4:

Penumbra is a Haveno’s fork that is more strongly aligned with the values of decentralisation, privacy and censorship resistance.

Penumbra will depend on Haveno’s API and the fork should be viewed more like an extension of Haveno.

The dev promised to pick up development if Haveno is ever forced to shut down for any reason or if the codebase is radically altered in a way that the majority won’t be compatible with Penumbra anymore.4


There are some doubts about the project at this point, mainly the usage of 2/2 multisig for trades:

[..] it’s just not technically possible without timelocks in Monero. (@erciccione)5

According to the code repo, the PoC is coming soon.
