Batpool signaling Segwit according to https://www.litecoinpool.org/pools#segwit!


#1

Havent seen then signaling before :). Only LTC1BTC, BW.com and Antpool left amongst the big ones…


#2

Wasnt ProHashing supposed to start signaling Segwit?


#3

Looking good for Segwit, but I thought LTC1BTC is not going to support it because the code is to complex in their opinion???
But if BW.com and Antpool kick in, we are at >75%


#4

New hashpower pointed in the right direction will also do the trick :slight_smile:


#5

True, but we need an extra 800Ghash to get to 75%… that’s a lot
I think miners should be aware that they can easially switch to pools that do support segwit, 5 minutes most…
At this moment if BW.com would support, that would be enough. We are very close now, 68%!!


#6

Checked it up. ProHashing will start signaling after tests etc late April


#7

I believe you are mistaken in regards to how SegWit is activated.

The miners need to find 75% of the blocks during a retarget period, not just occupy 75% of the network hash. It will take more than a 5 minute switch.
