Coinbase Implemented SegWit

One of the largest cryptocurrency exchange now supports SegWit protocol

The leading crypto exchange of digital assets Coinbase announced the imminent launch of Segmental Witness (SegWit) protocol.

The SegWit protocol was activated in the bitcoin network in August 2017, but even after six months a number of large companies still did not support it. Coinbase turned out to be under a separate wave of criticism - a few months ago the company expressed support for some dubious decisions that could potentially increase its profits, but would hardly contribute to the healthy development of bitcoin as a whole.

It is important that Coinbase has one of the largest user bases in the bitcoin industry, and SegWit support will surely have a positive impact on both the total number of SegWit transactions on the network and the reduction of commissions.
