Hello, With two student colleagues of mine (Denis HODZHADZHIKOV, Kim-Son PHAM), we are developping a mining pool as an academic work.
Currently, most of our work is reverse engineering on existing implementations of the protocol because of the lack of documentation, especially on edge cases. Our referent professor suggested us to publish a IETF RFC draft of the protocol's specification. However, I think a BIP would be more appropriate for this. I've found that the BIP 40 and the BIP 41 were allocated for respectively the wire protocol and the mining protocol since at least August 2013 (cf. https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/commit/e12d37e6639a4acffa2710ddb6cf81e74403b2a1). It seems that nothing has been done since. Could we (me and my colleagues) start writing a draft for the BIP 41 (mining protocol)? Regards, Jules LAMUR. _______________________________________________ bitcoin-dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/bitcoin-dev
