Add 256-bit Integer Types to Lisk Codec

Hello everyone,

I would like to propose a new LIP. This LIP adds 256-bit integer types to Lisk codec. The abstract is as follows:

We propose to add support for 256-bit integers in Lisk codec - the serialization method introduced in LIP 0027 - for both signed and unsigned integers. Unsigned integers will be encoded using big-endian encoding. Signed integers will be encoded using the two’s complement representation.

Please find the complete LIP in this pull request.

I’m looking forward to your feedback.

The LIP was merged this morning, and it is now LIP 0073.
