Fellow Binancians,
Binance has launched Segregated Witness (SegWit) support for Bitcoin (BTC) deposits (withdrawals are already supported). By selecting the BTC (SegWit) network, users can transfer funds to a SegWit (bech32) address.
Please note SegWit should help reduce fees; however, if you incorrectly send incompatible assets to the address, your funds will not be recoverable and will result in permanent loss. For more details, please refer to the SegWit FAQ.
What is Segregated Witness (SegWit)
Segregated Witness (SegWit) is a protocol upgrade developed to solve scalability problems on the Bitcoin blockchain network. Through SegWit, witnesses (signatures) are separated from transaction data, resulting in an increase in the Bitcoin network’s transaction throughput.
