comment What is the canonical way of creating merkle tree branches?
@mikeazo In general - I'm not sure how often merkle branches are used outside of Bitcoin, but if there is some canonical way of handling them in cryptography, it could be applied to Bitcoin as well.

comment Safety when disclosing hashes of secrets used to calculate other secrets
@IlmariKaronen At the moment I can't disclose what is the practical application of this, but the technical side of it is generating hashes of a secret number and a given number that are unknown before the operation takes place despite the hash of the secret number being known.

comment Safety when disclosing hashes of secrets used to calculate other secrets
@IlmariKaronen To prevent anyone from knowing a result of a hash for particular input before they query the system. In other words, as long as the secret is not known, the result of SHA256(A+B) for non-empty B should be unknowable before someone sends a query with B to the system.
