👉 Bitcoin Optech #162

  • summarizes dust limit discussion
  • describes changes to services/client software
  • includes ninth post in the series about preparing for taproot: signature adaptors:

Signature adaptors, also commonly called adaptor signatures and one-time verifiably encrypted signatures, are a solution to these problems—and to many other problems actually faced today in production systems built on Bitcoin. Although usable with Bitcoin’s existing ECDSA signature scheme, it’s much easier to use adaptors privately and costlessly in combination with the BIP340 implementation of schnorr signatures for taproot.
