2 blocks.
1 block left seems that this last block will take about 10 minutes to get comfirmed.By the way I had a question,will fees go down after it's activation?We are paying 10-15$ per tx which is really bad Sad


Edit:SegWit activated! Happy SegWit Bitcoin! BTC.com is who mined the last block before SegWit activation and BTCC mined the first segwit block  Grin

A lot of benefits, including the Lightning Network and transaction malleability fix. Google is your friend.

Activation.

lol. it looks like block explorers are having some trouble keeping up with the upgrade. surprisingly, blockchain.info is leading the pack in successfully dealing with segwit: https://twitter.com/petertoddbtc/status/900541884564742146

fortunately, the network seems to be functioning properly and any soft fork activation FUD has now been surpassed. no sign of any chain splits that i can see. onwards and upwards! now we just need to deal with this pesky bitcoin cash matter, and well, the segwit2x matter, and we can be done with it.

I do not see any big improvements yet but the unconfirmed transactions in the mempool is growing smaller and smaller. Let us see if the small increase in transactions per block would help get those transactions faster.

The BitcoinCash people are proud that it took only 3 blocks to confirm all 37,000 transactions in their mempool.

Will segwit bring more transactions for each block? why the new block found out has the same transactions as old ones?

The no. of transactions are almost the same as non-Segwit block. I thought that transactions will double by the time we have Segwit.

Another funny thing is Antpool mined an empty block right after it. How can that be with the mempool having 30,000 unconfirmed transactions?

Thanks for posting.

For others, I did a little bit of reading on Segwit.  Segwit transactions need to be from segwit addresses for them to be included, the software is compatible with older versions that use legacy address.  So it will take sometime for everyone to update and start making segwit transactions that allow for the larger block sizes.  The wait is killing me to see a "big block" aughh

No, Most probably, All transaction made on block greater than 480824 is already in Segwit effect.

Give this a read... I think it would apply to most other wallets also

https://blog.trezor.io/prepare-get-ready-segwit-segregated-witness-activation-bitcoin-wallet-950bb2196de9




...After your done reading
and once your wallet has segwit address move your coins to there and you can take advantage of the higher block limits.
