Cash Improvement Proposals (CHIPs and Proto CHIPs) List

Added. Thanks for the heads-up.

If we ever adapt BIP123 into a “CHIP123”, it would probably be good to insert a “Relay Policy” layer between “Consensus” and “Peer Services”. It would contain things that can’t split the chain (unlike “Consensus”) but can cause consistency/security issues for 0-conf (unlike what one might expect for “Peer Services”). But for now “Peer Services” is the best fitting category to put these CHIPs in.

If you draft/propose such a CHIP for Relay Policy Layer I will support it :grinning:.

I have updated the multiple OP_RETURN CHIP to “Proposed” status.

Thanks for maintaining a list!

The PMv3 proposal is now a CHIP here. I don’t think I’m able to edit the title of this thread, but could an admin change it to follow the format of other threads about CHIPs? Maybe CHIP-2021-01-PMv3: Version 3 Transaction Format + the CHIPs tag.

Thanks for the information.
Both, CHIPs list and tittle of the correspondent post, updated.

I just created a thread for a new CHIP here:

Targeted Virtual Machine Limits CHIP added to the list.

I am very impressed with the content I see here.

Shouldn’t the CHIP for Multiple OP_RETURNs and Unconfirmed Transaction Chain Limit be something like implemented or being implemented? It will be a few hours left before the May 2021 Upgrade goes live and said CHIPs are activated.

Let’s wait for those CHIPs owner’s confirmation.

New CHIP

@Leandrodimarco should we rename the thread linked for CHIP: Bigger Script Integers too? I think it should be CHIP 2021-03 Bigger Script Integers.

(This one:)

I can change that if @Jonathan_Silverblood is also ok with it. I wrote that before there was a CHIP.

I’m OK with it.

Done.

As agreed I updated post’s category and relevant tags.
Minimum 20 characters posts are thought to prevent spam (default setting).
We can reduce it if that make sense or add more reactions :slight_smile:.

After the June 1 BCH network discussion, the participants decided to extract the Ranged Script Numbers component of the PMv3 CHIP into a separate CHIP to make it a bit easier to both review and reference externally. I just finished splitting it out here:

And here is the new BCR thread:
