Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Still too many SegWit/Lightning network sceptics. Litecoin miners start SegWit signalling today. Could this be our test case for Bitcoin network to convince critics?

  • Litecoin miners will starts signalling SegWit later today
  • threshold is 75% instead of 95%
  • f2pool has 45% market share, could block block Segwit, but also if they decide to signal it could be implemented quite quickly
  • Lightning network could also run on Litecoin

Given that Segwit will be implemented it would be the best live test bitcoin can imagine, the resistance of mining pools could start vanishing every week after Segwit runs without any faults.

Can I have your opinion on this?
