What is SegWit?

SegWit or Segregated Witness is a soft fork on the Bitcoin Network that aims to solve scalability issues.  By separating the signature (witness) data on transactions, the amount of space needed for each transaction data is reduced, thus allowing more transactions to be stored on each block.

SegWit was activated on the Bitcoin Network on August 23, 2017.
