Which exchange should be used?

Of all the exchanges mentioned in Discord, Telegram, Slack and Twitter, none seems to stand out as the obvious choice. All seems to have had their good share of shenanigans, on way or another. Either by delisting, which is an obvious no go, or more dangerous business models like hyperleveraging, crypto loans and worse.

What is the most interesting/exciting script that was made possible by the Genesis upgrade?

Non-standard scripts can finally be used without limits on the Bitcoin SV blockchain thanks to the Genesis upgrade. We think that this will accelerate the innovation and we will soon see a variety of new scripts being used on a regular basis.

What is the one that is the most exciting, interesting and/or powerful in your opinion? Which new use cases will it enable?

What is Miner ID, how it works and what can it be used for?

There has been a lot of discussion going on about Miner ID lately. What is Miner ID and how does it work? Is it optional for miners to use and what would be their incentive for or against it?

Which cool new possibilities does it enable?

Note: Only answers that properly answer questions on BitQ&A will qualify for the bounty. Links to external resources are more than welcome, while answers with links only won’t qualify.

Provide examples of multi-sig scripts

What are the possible Bitcoin scripts to create a multi-sig transaction? Please provide the script code with explanations.

I would like to see at least two types of such scripts explained (OP_CHECKMULTISIG and the one with conditional OP_IF statements that Steve Shadders showed at this CoinGeek Seoul presentation). If there are more options, please list them as well.

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.
