I'm trying to get my head around MimbleWimble transactions and I have a few questions in relation to parameters.
A MimbleWimble transaction consists of two Pedersen commitments (i.e. money-in & money-out) and below is the basic algorithm (I think).
(amount-sent x bignumber1) + (key1 x bignumber2) + (amount-received x bignumber1) + (key2 x bignumber2)
I'm unclear on the below points:
- If key1 and key2 are private keys for each user, are these the blinding factor?
- Where do bignumber1 and bignumber2 come from?
