This brings incredible flexibility for building Ecash systems.””We also transition from base64 keyset IDs to hexadecimal IDs with a version flag. This allows much easier upgrades of the keyset ID in the future.””Read more about Cashu and check out Cashu projects like Wallets and mints at https://cashu.space.””If you are a developer, make sure to check out the many Cashu libraries on our documentation page at https://docs.cashu.space.””Thank you for your work on this PR @ngutech21 @thunderB__ @thesimplekid and all afficionados @gandlaf21 @kadrigron @uxerik_ @MinibitsCash and many more.””If anyone feels interested in Cashu development or Chaumian Ecash in general, join our R&D Telegram,” wrote @callebtc.
