BitShares Improvement Proposal¶
BSIP stands for BitShares Improvement Proposal but can also seen as an improvement protocol. A BSIP is a design document providing information to the BitShares community, or describing a new feature for BitShares or its processes or environment. The BSIP should provide a concise technical specification of the feature or the idea and a rationale for it. It may not only describe technical improvements but also document best-practises and recommendations.
We intend BSIPs to be the primary mechanisms for proposing new features, for collecting community input on an issue, and for documenting the design decisions that have gone into BitShares. The BSIP author is responsible for building consensus within the community and documenting dissenting opinions.
Because the BSIPs are maintained as text files in a versioned repository, their revision history is the historical record of the feature proposal.
A detailed description of the structure of BSIPs can be found in BSIP-0001
