Cryptocurrency News & Your Guide to the Blockchain Economy The crypto space can be frustrating for newbies, especially with the amount of techspeak that gets thrown around.

[Video] What is Segwit (Segregated Witness)

IMPORTANT: Segwit includes a wide range of features, many of which are highly technical. In this video we focus on one main feature that is easier to explain. Segwit was invented in order to help shrink the file size of a Bitcoin transaction. This allows more transactions to be approved each time a block of transactions is confirmed. Basically, its purpose is to make the Bitcoin network approve more transactions with each block. Every Bitcoin transaction has 3 parts who sent it, who receives it, and a digital signature that verifies the sender has the right to send the coins. The signature is considered to be the witness for the transaction.
