Lower blockchain fees for external bitcoin wallet transfers? Yes! It’s here! With the new wallets, transactions will cost up to 6 times cheaper than ever before. And bitcoin transfers between Wirex customers remain 100% FREE! More and more people are investing in Bitcoin. Together with the growth of Bitcoin prices, this caused more transactions and a greater load on the blockchain. In turn, blockchain fees rose. The speed of transactions decreased. SegWit makes the bitcoin network faster and lighter. For…

I already see a problem. I have btc locked up on nicehash which i was mining to wirex btc adress. So if nicehash decides to pay this i will need to pay duble fee. Great
First wait for btc 2 months and then pay duble fee.

Hi Dan. We’ve just edited the article. The old address will still be available inside your Wirex account and will continue to work. :grinning:

Can you please just add Ether or Litecoin or even Bitcoin Cash instead of Bitcoin. I’ve been using segwit for ages and the fees are still sky high.


#5

Can you kindly clarrify if we are going to have B2X coins when the folk occurs. Based on our BTC balance

I think it’s great segwit is finally being implemented. My only questions are: will we get a notification when the migration is complete and of course…any chance that would be today? :wink:

What makes you think B2X will be popular?


#8

I’ve got the notification saying that my account is now segwit enabled but my wallet address is the same. Wasn’t it supposed to change?

You got a new customer because of this, nice work guys!!

Segwit B2X the whole team looks for me untrustworthy. You can google Donna Khyuz

Business developer she is a fotomodel and actor and now she is segwit developer. Sounds very dangerous to me and i will not use B2X. I will use bitcoin, ripple, monero, litecoin. thats it.

SegWit and B2X are two different forks.

SegWit is a soft fork side chain for Bitcoin; you can send Bitcoin from SegWit addresses to normal Bitcoin addresses and vice versa; the best part is when you send Bitcoin from a SegWit address to another SegWit address the fees are 6x cheaper and confirmations are 6x faster too.

B2X is hard Bitcoin fork; similar to Bitcoin Cash; it is it’s own crypto-currency and is not connected to Bitcoin.

Wirex will only be supporting the SegWit soft fork with SegWit enabled wallets; so you send BTC cheaply and quickly!
