Bitcore, 0.13.1 and Segwit

(Moeadham) #1

Hi Bitcore team,

Great work on the library, very impressive work.

It seems that bitcore-node is currently tied to a patched version of 0.12.1-Bitcoin.

A few questions:

  • Are there any imminent plans to upgrade this?
  • Do we know the impact on Bitcore and Insight if Segwit activates?

There are plans to update to 0.13.1 very soon. In fact, feel free to perform a gitian build of:

This will help with the release.

We do know the impact on Bitcore and Insight if miners decide to employ segwit-related BIPs. We have some merge requests in for Bitcore to support segwit.
