Looking at feedback from the community it seems like there is mystery surrounding how the code that 0.8.5 is built on is executing. If you feel this way, please consider this thread your launching ground for a deeper understanding of the code.
The idea is to collect content related questions from coders and non-coders combined. Questions will be consolidated for related content and then answered. If it is needed to rephrase the posted question in order to address any implied questions we will do that in the answer so that it is clear, but please spare anyone who is answering these this extra effort by posting the questions clearly and phrased in a manner to promote community growth!
Think of this as gas fees, clear questions are similar to setting higher transaction rewards and are more likely to be answered first.
NOTE: Questions that do NOT belong here will be removed, please re-post them in a more appropriate thread. Examples of these kinds of questions relate to: “Exchange listings”, “EMB availability”, “Project timelines”, “Release dates”, “wallet handling”.
Some examples of good questions are: “How does the miner store the sub-chain information?” or “Where in the code base does 0.8.5 execute signatures for transactions?”
