Segregated Witness (SegWit) Protocol   Bitcoin Wiki Segregated Witness (SegWit) Protocol Bitcoin Wiki
Segregated Witness (abbreviated as SegWit) is an implemented protocol upgrade intended to provide protection from transaction malleability and increase block capacity. SegWit defines a new structure called a witness that is committed to blocks separately from the transaction merkle tree. This structure contains data required to check transaction validity but is not required to determine transaction effects. In particular, signatures and redeem scripts are moved into this new structure, which does not count towards the traditional 1 MB block size limit. Instead, a new weight parameter is defined, and blocks are allowed to have at most 4 million weight units (WU). A byte in the original 1 MB zone of the block weighs 4 WU, but a byte in a witness structure only weighs 1 WU, allowing blocks that are technically larger than 1 MB without a hardforking change. After the successful activations of OP_CLTV and OP_CSV, SegWit was the last protocol change needed to make the Lightning Network safe to deploy on the Bitcoin network.

Segwit Transactions Reach Historical Peaks - Ethereum World News Segwit Transactions Reach Historical Peaks - Ethereum World News
Bitcoin keeps moving forward on its road to scalability with an ever-increasing implementation of SegWit, a technology that today reached a record high and continues to grow. Segregated Witness or Segwit is a process that removes the signature data from a transaction, allowing to store more movements in the same block. The implementation of this technology aims to reduce waiting times in confirmations as well as a reduction in fees. Segwit is a second layer implementation which together with Ligthing Network allow Bitcoin to achieve record transaction speeds and a significant reduction in fees.

What is SegWit  - CoinDesk What is SegWit - CoinDesk
Last updated: 22 February, 2018 SegWit (short for Segregated Witness) is a protocol upgrade that changes the way data is stored. It was activated on litecoin on May 10, 2017, and on bitcoin on 23 August, 2017. Developer Pieter Wiulle first presented the idea at the Scaling Bitcoin conference in December 2015. Many hailed it as a long-awaited solution to bitcoin's scaling problem. The maximum block size in the main protocol is 1MB, which restricts the number of transactions bitcoin can process to approximately 7 per second. This was going to limit bitcoin's potential growth, and prevent it from becoming a usable high-volume payment system. This share was discovered by us on December 23, 2018 11:49 AM.

[Video] What is Segwit  (Segregated Witness) [Video] What is Segwit (Segregated Witness)
In today's video we're going to talk about a term you may have heard bouncing around lately. I'm talking about Segregated Witness or Segwit in short. 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. This item was first seen by us on August 15, 2017 10:39 AM.
