Bitcoin Software Addition ‘SegWit’ Could Make Digital Currency Faster

Bitcoin Software Addition ‘SegWit’ Could Make Digital Currency Faster The Bitcoin community is ready to roll out an enhancement to the digital currency’s code base; SegWit (which stands for “Segregated Witness”) separates the encrypting of the transaction information from the currency miner’s validation signature; currency miners need extensive computing resources and time to prove that a transaction is true and valid, therefore this step has traditionally slowed down the recording of transactions; done with testing, the new SegWit feature could be released as soon as November 15th; it is considered officially adopted once 95% of the Bitcoin software community deploys the code; this could take as little as a month or two, or significantly longer.
