Segregated Witness - SegWit
#1
[Image: SegWit_coinlibrex_01.png]

Segregated Witness, or SegWit, is the name used for the implemented soft fork in the bitcoin transaction format.

The aim of the technology is to:
  • elimination of unintentional malleability of bitcoin transactions
  • enable optional data transmission
  • bypassing certain protocol constraints such as block size limits



An important goal is to alleviate the problem of blockchain size limitation, which reduces the speed of bitcoin transactions. This is created by dividing the transaction into two segments. The unlock signature ("witness" data) is removed from the original part and attached as a separate structure at the end. In the original part, the sender's and recipient's data are still stored and the new 'witness' structure contains scripts and signatures. The original data segment would be counted normally, but the 'witness' segment would be counted as a quarter of its actual size.
