Bitcoin’s privacy upgrade Taproot is now being voted on for implementation

posted 5 days ago
Bitcoin is 1787 blocks away from being more private and scalable, if miners accept to implement Taproot before the next difficulty adjustment.

Taproot is a Bitcoin soft fork that integrates Schnorr cryptographic signatures, an alternative signature method to the ECDSA currently implemented on the network. This upgrade, in very simple terms, allows the creation of a kind of master key to summarize a set of signatures into a single one.
