about the new Contacts
page, which led to interesting discussion around BIP 39
(recovery phrases) and BIP 47
(re-usable payment codes). Both are tagged as “Unanimously Discourage for implementation”, without much rationale as to why. Considering that BIP 39 is basically an established standard now, and a handful of wallets implement BIP 47, it’s difficult to know what to make of the statement of discouragement. After some digging and discussion, I was able to get a decent idea of the problems with each (which is not the same as understanding why the use is generally discouraged). May need to document these, to save others time in the future.
That’s it for now. Covid sucks. Hope you don’t get it. Have a good weekend.
