What will replace OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY & OP_CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY after the Genesis upgrade?

Since these two opcodes will be removed after Genesis and (from my understanding) nLockTime works in a slightly different way (prevents transaction from being included in a block vs. UTXO being locked until given time/block height), how will be possible to achieve same functionality after that?

Is it possible to build a locking/redeem script using other opcodes that achieves the same result? Or is there something else?

Is it possible to use browser's crpyo primitives with bsv library?

I have some code that does a lot of HD derivation and ECIES encryption/decryption and I noticed that it runs quite slow in the browser. I did some profiling and it seems that it spends most of the time in the libraries that handle primitives (sha256 hashing, big int, …).

This makes sense as it seems that we have this primitives natively in node, but we need to use libraries in the browser. I did some Googling and it seems that newer browsers do have some support for this things so I was wondering if it is possible to use that when available? I suspect that would speed up things significantly?

I am thinking about browser’s native APIs such as SubtleCrypto and BigInt. Or even an Emscripten-compiler Javascript library such as js-nacl.

How are Bitcoin blocks structured?

Bitcoin blockchain is made of individual blocks. I am wondering how do these blocks actually look like. Which different data types are part of them? What is each part of the block used for, what is its meaning and what are the possible values that can those values take?

I would also like to, assuming I am looking at a block’s HEX blob, be able to decode it/determine various parts of it.

What are API/SDK options available to Bitcoin SV developers?

Which options are available for developers that want to build on Bitcoin SV blockchain? What APIs and/or SDKs can be used?

How do different possibilities compare in terms of functionality, ease of use and cost?

Is there a single solution that can cover all needs of an average app or should more be used at the same time?

How do I create a counter like bitqa.app uses that increases the “Answer: 0” count and stays?

I’m a programming noob trying to build a website using Money Button and BSV blockchain. I need help (or a visual of code) writing code that increases a number on the page after the Money Button is swiped. Just how “Answers: 0” gets increased by +1 on bitqa.app after paying. I hope $5 bounty for best answer is enough. Thanks in advance!
