Updates to Stellar Protocol (CAPs) and Ecosystem (SEPs)
Core Development Proposals (CAP) and Stellar Ecosystem Proposals (SEP) are a proper manner of documenting proposed requirements to enhance numerous points of the Stellar Community. These perform just like EIPs and BIPs from the Ethereum and Bitcoin communities respectively. CAPs and SEPs symbolize the end result of many discussions that always happen on the Stellar Developer Google Group.
The recent subject on the dev mailing listing this week was the proposal for including protocol-level mulitplexed (aka muxed) accounts. In case you want a refresher:

two totally different multiplexed accounts, or embrace a multiplexing

The MuxedAccount kind can both be a Ed25519 key or a pair of an Ed25519 and an unsigned 64-bit integer id. The id is ignored by stellar-core, sort of like a per-AccountID memo ID.
We’ve heard from a number of gamers within the ecosystem, together with Lobstr, Stellarport, Ternio Blockcard, and Coinqvest, and we’d love to listen to from you.
As SDF chief scientist David Mazieres places it within the thread “The query on the desk is whether or not we must always settle for CAP-0027, which already has an implementation.”
