EdDSA, a Schnorr variant/derivative, was chosen as the basis of the CFRG
signature algorithm two months ago in this poll (which you didn't
participate in, perhaps hence your confusion):


The remaining questions are around the hash and pre-hash functions, which
will be the subject of an upcoming poll. Otherwise the algorithm is very
much "invented".
