There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Basically its stands for segregated witness.

Its a kind of update to the bitcoin protocol. Basically we're making more space in each block of the btc blockchain so that more transactions can be processed in a block.

If you noticed while bitcoin was at its peak a month or so ago, transactions were becoming slow to confirm and the transaction fees were becoming large.
Segwit basically solves this(to some extent) and makes bitcoin more scalable.


I could go more technical if you want more info.

Also most of the nodes are running segwit so it is very likely that it will activate by Aug 1st(thats the proposed deadling).


And we will see a large bull run in the market if everything goes well.

why don't you make an effort and read up on the internet yourself, instead of asking unsusupecting forum members to spoonfeed you.



another totally pointless thread (racked up by karan1498)
