Coinbase has stated its commitment to introduce SegWit compatibility in “a few weeks,” fulfilling a promise made to customers in late 2017.
Final Testing Confirmed
In a tweet Monday, the largest US exchange and wallet provider repeated claims made late last year that SegWit – as a “feature” – was less of a priority for developers than security and performance.
“Our engineering team has begun the final testing phase of SegWit for Bitcoin on Coinbase. SegWit compatible Bitcoin sends/receives will be available for customers in the next few weeks,” staff wrote, linking to the original announcement from December.
