    As bitcoin becomes increasingly popular, more and more people bid to have their transactions included in the next block, which increases the average cost of each transaction. This will likely continue until the Lightning Network goes live and we will finally have access to instant and cheap BTC transactions. In the meantime, you can easily cut the cost of your fee's by over 30% by simply switching to a wallet that is SegWit compatible. SegWit transactions are smaller so they they take up less space in the blockchain, which saves you money. Here are a list of the SegWit ready bitcoin wallets that you should be using....

    Samourai ( - Android
    Blockstream Green ( - iOS, Android
    Bitcoin Core ( - PC, Linux, Mac.
    Electrum ( - PC
    Trezor ( - Cold Storage
    Ledger ( - Cold Storage
    BRD ( iPhone

    If you are using a Coinbase or wallet then you are probably paying double the amount of fees that you need to so please help bitcoin scale by using one of the wallets listed above.

    Coinbase uses SegWit now but, BRD and KeepKey don't.

    it has been over a year since segwit has activated so i would recommend that people avoid wallets that have not already integrated. is a complete clown show.

    why haven't keepkey implemented segwit? i was thinking about buying one of their hardware wallets but after reading this i don't have a lot of confidence in them.

    KeepKey implemented SegWit in a update last month. You can now make segwit transactions on BTC, BTG and LTC.

    You should include the new Blockstream Green wallet for Android and iPhone. It's awesome.

    I know Gemini are an exchange but they added full support for SegWit this week. Tyler Winklevoss announced it....
