Which use the proprietary "Hyperspeed" wireless protocol and the newest sensor? Are there any in this category that can also use Bluetooth?

I'm looking for a really high quality mouse to carry around in my my backpack. It would be nice if it could be charged with USB-C or Micro-USB. And, of course, it has to work reasonably well with my Linux-only laptop, though I don't expect that will be a problem unless I want to customize things.

But, I want the wireless protocol to be encrypted. Proprietary is not encrypted. If Razer has put some thought into security then I might be willing to risk a non-published proprietary wireless protocol as I've found Bluetooth to be very disappointing for a variety of reasons.

If Razer hasn't, I hope someone reverse engineers the protocol and uses it to cheat in subtle ways by reading opponents' mouse movements.

The only mouse that fits into your main 2 requirements in this question is the Basilisk X HyperSpeed currently.
