What is Segwit?
Segregated Witness (Segwit) was initially proposed by Bitcoin core developer Pieter Wuille in 2015. Segwit has been considered as an optimal solution in response to Bitcoin expansion. Addresses that support Segwit are uniformly initialized by "3", inconsistency with those of multi-signature wallet.
