The Native Introspection Operations Cash Improvement Proposal (CHIP) adds a set of new virtual machine (VM) operations which enable BCH contracts to efficiently access details about the current transaction like output values, recipients, and more.
Adding native support for introspection operations would make covenants simpler, safer, and more efficient, enabling innovative new use cases.
A new revision to the Native Introspection Opcodes CHIP has been published. This revision clarifies several technical details and adds an extensive Rationale section documenting design decisions made in the specification.
Deployment of this specification is proposed for the May 2022 upgrade.
Review and feedback are deeply appreciated. Thanks!
Thank you to Jonathan Silverblood for co-owning and supporting this CHIP.
