Bech32 address support to save on bitcoin fees

Good news for our users, we now support Bech32 addresses for bitcoin withdrawals!

Bech32 is a native bitcoin address format for SegWit (Segregated Witness, a protocol upgrade activated in August 2017 to increase Bitcoin capacity).

SegWit transactions take less space inside a block, which allows more transactions per block and improves transaction confirmation times.

When you spend from Bech32 addresses, you can count on a 38% reduction of transaction fees (compared to spending from legacy non-SegWit addresses).

Surprisingly, as of June 28, 2019, less than 50% of bitcoin transactions use SegWit. Can you imagine the amount of unoptimized block space?

We invite you to specify a Bech32 address in your withdrawal settings and join us in saving on fees while improving Bitcoin throughput!
