This seems fairly complicated and yet-- if I don't misunderstand-- it doesn't capture the one special output masking case that I've seen actual applications want (which itself, is one out of the only two special sighash cases I've seen applications want-- the other being no-input). The case I think this is missing is SIGHASH_SINGLE | SIGHASH_LAST_OUTPUT e.g. "Sign the matching output, and the last output regardless of its index". The application for this style is "kickstarter" joint-payment transactions where you wish to sign both your change output (SIGHASH_SINGLE) and the joint-payment output (SIGHASH_LAST_OUTPUT). Without it, this kind of usage requires usually a chain of depth two for each input to split off the change. I came back around to your post at Sipa's recommendation because I was musing on is there a _simple_ set of enhanced sighash flags that capture real useful behaviour without falling down a rathole of specifying a totally general behaviour. _______________________________________________ bitcoin-dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/bitcoin-dev
