This BIP defines a MIME (RFC 2046) Media Type for Bitcoin payment
request messages.
Wallet or server software that sends payment protocol messages over
email or http should follow Internet standards for properly
encapsulating the messages.
The Media Type (Content-Type in HTML/email headers) for bitcoin
protocol messages shall be:
| Message || Type/Subtype
| PaymentRequest || application/bitcoin-paymentrequest
| Payment || application/bitcoin-payment
| PaymentACK || application/bitcoin-paymentack
Payment protocol messages are encoded in binary.
A web server generating a PaymentRequest message to initiate the
payment protocol would precede the binary message data with the
following headers:
Content-Type: application/bitcoin-paymentrequest
Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary
