Two things I think underappreciated about Bitcoin scaling in the near future: (1) Schnorr signature aggregation is a huge deal because what's vastly more important than the size of a block is *how many signatures a full node needs to verify per second*, and aggregation reduces it dramatically, (2) sig aggregation is a non-trivial endeavour, to say the least - it's *much* harder than just implementing a Schnorr signature (which has benefits on its own, to be clear).
Hello World, I'd like you to meet ecide - an R-alike UI for elliptic curve calculations. This is packaged with btcdeb as a separate binary. You must run ./configure --enable-dangerous for it to work.
