Hi All, OP_CHECKOUTPUTSHASHVERIFY is retracted in favor of OP_SECURETHEBAG*. OP_SECURETHEBAG does more or less the same thing, but fixes malleability issues and lifts the single output restriction to a known number of inputs restriction.
OP_CHECKOUTPUTSVERIFY had some issues with malleability of version and locktime. OP_SECURETHEBAG commits to both of these values. OP_SECURETHEBAG also lifts the restriction that OP_CHECKOUTPUTSVERIFY had to be spent as only a single input, and instead just commits to the number of inputs. This allows for more flexibility, but keeps it easy to get the same single output restriction. BIP: https://github.com/JeremyRubin/bips/blob/op-secure-the-bag/bip-secure-the-bag.mediawiki Implementation: https://github.com/JeremyRubin/bitcoin/tree/secure_the_bag A particularly useful topic of discussion is how best to eliminate the PUSHDATA and treat OP_SECURETHEBAG like a pushdata directly. I thought about how the interpreter works and is implemented and couldn't come up with something noninvasive. Thank you for your review and discussion, Jeremy * Plus the name is better
