   In this draft, we present FROST, a Flexible Round-Optimized Schnorr
   Threshold signature scheme that reduces network overhead during
   signing operations while protecting against forgery attacks
   applicable to prior similar threshold and multisignature

   FROST can be safely used without limiting concurrency of signing
   operations yet allows for true threshold signing, as only a threshold
   number of participants are required for signing operations.  Here, we
   define FROST as a two-round protocol, but it can be optimized to a
   single-round single-round signing protocol as the first round can be
   performed as a batched pre-processing stage.
