Digital Shares with Minimum Trust

proactive threshold signatures.

need to implement transferrability and scaling.

threshold signature means voting to produce a short easily verified signature.

proactive means that the sharing of the secret gets regularly re-obfuscated, by adding a zero secret - which however requires most people to be online whenever it gets re-obfuscated. The secret sharing rule is complex and under described, not clear to me how it scales.

It is not immediately obvious how to support transferrable shares, reliable secrecy, shareholder anonymity, and adequate scaling - detailed description of implementation needed.

.

At present the most recent version of digital threshold signatures should work without a trusted dealer provided that we use pair based signatures and have acceptable scaling. But there is no concrete example code, no description giving a detailed explanation of adaption to pair based signatures, and the description assumes synchronous communications, which description is apt to hide scaling problems.
