This entails all the logging, serialization, crypto, error dealing with, and customary knowledge buildings (headers/blocks/txs).”
“Most of this was already written for Grin++, however since some elements have been hurriedly coded on a good time schedule, I’m utilizing this chance to go over each line with a fine-tooth comb. As a part of this, I’m standardizing patterns that have been initially adopted inconsistently, backfilling lacking checks, and including higher documentation.”

These embody, deciding on a construct methodology for the venture, probably a ‘simplified model libbitcoin’s construct system’ in addition to defining fashions, fields and serialisation formatting of headers, kernels and signatures.
