Bitcoin Core 0.18.0 Bets on Segwit Adoption and Hints at Offline Tx Signing

After several months of development, the Bitcoin Core 0.18.0 client was successfully launched with some modifications aimed at improving the efficiency of BTC mining and including some changes that in some way favor Segwit’s adoption.

One of the fundamental tweaks of this new update is that it expects users to configure their software to be Segwit compatible. If this compatibility is not supported, “getblocktemplate” command calls will fail, generating a lower reward for the miners.
