Which will be the first BSV application that will catch mainstream adoption?

Now, this will obviously require some speculation, but why not. There are many exciting Bitcoin SV applications being released practically at a daily basis, but they are arguably mostly used by the (still small in grand scheme of things) BSV community.

I predict that at some point we’ll see one/some of those applications gain attention of the general public and take off - probably dragging the entire ecosystem with them.

If you could bet which (or what kind of) app that will be, what would you bet on?

Which transactions are available from "getrawtransaction" RPC call when "-txindex" is disabled?

I noticed that even with -txindex disabled getrawtransaction RPC call still returns transactions. I assume that without the full index it will still return transactions that node software needs for other reasons (wallet transactions, UTXOs, …). But what are those cases? Which types of transactions are available even without the full transaction index? And what happens if I request a transaction that is not available?

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?

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.
