Here is a proposed BIP for 64-byte elliptic curve Schnorr signatures,
over the same curve as is currently used in ECDSA:
It is simply a draft specification of the signature scheme itself. It
does not concern consensus rules, aggregation, or any other
integration into Bitcoin - those things are left for other proposals,
which can refer to this scheme if desirable. Standardizing the
signature scheme is a first step towards that, and as it may be useful
in other contexts to have a common Schnorr scheme available, it is its
own informational BIP.
If accepted, we'll work on more production-ready reference
implementations and tests.
This is joint work with several people listed in the document.
