- Constructing a threshold signature scheme requires collaboration between members of the signing group. We want to make this collaboration more transparent, to expose malicious parties.
- Multi-signature smart contracts are normally directly controlled by on-chain interactions with each signatory. We want to enable trusted inputs to multi-signature smart contracts that can be constructed off-chain and evaluated in O(1) time and space.
- Resource-constrained devices cannot gain information in a trusted way. We want to show that a BLS threshold signature scheme can be constructed partially on-chain, allowing to sign important information such as block headers.
