Reddcoinnoob actually in this case it is exactly like Bitcoin.

BIP66 was introduced originally by Bitcoin in 2015 to resolve an issue in the was SSL signed transactions. The proposal addressed the way that transactions were signed to make sure they complied to DER

The signaling we used (85% of the network generating v4 blocks) followed similar also.

BIPs (Bitcoin Improvement Proposal) document the inclusion, improvement, enhancements to the project.
