68 - Relative lock-time using consensus-enforced sequence numbers

<pre> BIP: 68 Layer: Consensus (soft fork) Title: Relative lock-time using consensus-enforced sequence numbers Author: Mark Friedenbach <mark@friedenbach.org> BtcDrak <btcdrak@gmail.com> Nicolas Dorier <nicolas.dorier@gmail.com> kinoshitajona <kinoshitajona@gmail.com> Comments-Summary: No comments yet.

The original idea appears to have been that a transaction in the mempool would be replaced by using the same input with a higher sequence value. Although this was not properly imple...

<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. ...
