Three tags for Multi-signature: multi-sig, multi-sig-address and multi-sig-transaction

I just noticed that we have multi-sig, multi-sig-address, and multi-sig-transaction and was starting to write a meta post to suggest that we combine them into a single tag. Then this topic by past-...

Should private-key-format and wallet-import-format be merged?

To me, private-key-format is a superset of wallet-import-format as WIF is a private key format, but other private key formats such as xprv are not. However tagging WIF questions as both is probably ...

Did you know that you can propose synonyms directly on tags? Other users can then vote on your synonyms, they don't have to be created by mods necessarily. ;) In case you had done that already and ...

Tag for "verifying software download during installation"

I like release-verification since it pretty succinctly wraps up the intention of the tag. My only (slight) concern is that it may not be obvious to users asking how to hash a binary that this is the ...

New tag for questions concerning mining reward structure

I think the new tag you propose might have a bit of an overlap with mining-reward and blockspace-market especially, but I agree that it is an interesting sub-topic that we could group. I like security-...

There appears to be multiple projects that contain bitcoinlib in their name

It seems to me that Peter Todd's python-bitcoinlib should be tagged as python-bitcoinlib, while bitcoinlib should be tagged as bitcoinlib. Unfortunately it appears there is a .NET library under the ...

What's the difference in scope between the tags [opcodes] and [script]?

The transaction tag is too unspecific. Should we split it up?

coinbase-transaction The "coinbase transaction" is the transaction inside a block that pays the miner his block reward. Use this tag when asking questions referring only to the coinbase transaction.
