SegWit Adoption 50%
SegWit has been growing steadily over the past 12 months, and today SegWit adoption has passed the 50% mark. Over half of all Bitcoin transactions use SegWit.

In order to get cheaper transactions, that is, to receive the SegWit discount, user's can receive Bitcoin to a SegWit wallet address(they begin with 3), and then spend those same bitcoins to get the discount. Also, sending to a SegWit address is cheaper as well.
