Ergo Improvement Proposals (EIPs)#
Ergo Improvement Proposals (EIPs) are a set of guidelines and standards designed for the continuous improvement of Ergo. These proposals encompass a wide range of aspects, including but not limited to, core protocol specifications, client APIs, dApp/contract standards, and more.
Here are some of the EIPs that have been proposed and implemented:
- EIP-0001: UTXO-Set Scanning Wallet API: This EIP focuses on extending the wallet to serve the needs of external applications by providing a flexible scanning interface.
- EIP-0020: ErgoPay: An interaction protocol between wallet application and dApp for creating, signing and sending Ergo transactions.
- EIP-0037: Tweaking Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm: This EIP proposes changes to make the current difficulty readjustment more reactive and smoother.
- EIP-0027: Emission Retargeting Soft-Fork: This EIP proposes an amendment to the emission schedule to ensure the long-term sustainability of the mining protocol.
To gain a better understanding of the structure and formatting of EIPs, we encourage you to review the existing EIPs. This will provide you with a clear picture of the expectations and standards associated with EIPs.
