45 - Structure for Deterministic P2SH Multisignature Wallets

<pre> BIP: 45 Layer: Applications Title: Structure for Deterministic P2SH Multisignature Wallets Author: Manuel Araoz <manu@bitpay.com> Ryan X. Charles <ryan@bitpay.com> Matias Alejo Garcia <matias@bitpay.com> Comments-Summary: No comments yet. Comments-URI: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/wiki/Comments:BIP-0045 Status: Proposed Type: Standards Track Created: 2014-04-25 </pre> ==Abstract== This BIP defines a structure for hierarchical deterministic P2SH multi-party multi-signature wallets (HDPM wallets from now on) based on the algorithm described in BIP-0032 (BIP32 from now on) and purpose scheme described in BIP-0043 (BIP43 from now on). This BIP is a particular application of BIP43. ==Motivation== The structure proposed in this document allows for standard ways to create, use, import, and store HDPM wallets. It allows to handle multiple parties sharing an m-of-n wallet, on the following assumptions: * n parties share an m-of-n wallet. * Each...

123 - BIP Classification

<pre> BIP: 123 Title: BIP Classification Author: Eric Lombrozo <elombrozo@gmail.com> Comments-Summary: No comments yet. Comments-URI: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/wiki/Comments:BIP-0123 Status: Active Type: Process Created: 2015-08-26 License: CC0-1.0 GNU-All-Permissive </pre> ==Abstract== This document describes a classification scheme for BIPs. BIPs are classified by system layers with lower numbered layers involving more intricate interoperability requirements. The specification defines the layers and sets forth specific criteria for deciding to which layer a particular standards BIP belongs. ==Copyright== This BIP is dual-licensed under the Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal and GNU All-Permissive licenses. ==Motivation== Bitcoin is a system involving a number of different standards. Some standards are absolute requirements for interoperability while others can be considered optional, giving implementors a choice of whether to support them. ...
