In addition, there has been a page up for several months (https://bitcoincore.org/en/segwit_adoption/) that gauges whether or not wallets are ready for SegWit. Unfortunately, it appears that the page hasn't been updated since May. I do know that several wallets have finished or are close to finishing their support, though. Would I want anyone to lose money due to faulty wallets? Of course not. By the same token, devs have had almost a year to tinker with SegWit and make sure the wallet isn't so poorly written that it'll flame out when SegWit comes along. It's not like this is some untested, mostly unknown feature that's being slipped out at the last minute, unlike other features I could name but won't. :) -- --- Douglas Roark Cryptocurrency, network security, travel, and art. https://onename.com/droark joro...@vt.edu PGP key ID: 26623924
