Exploring Bitcoin With Taproot, featuring Aaron van Wirdum of Bitcoin Magazine, Andrew Poelstra of Blockstream and Adam Gibson and Chris Belcher of JoinMarket.
If you’ve paid attention to Bitcoin on the protocol level recently, you’ve likely heard of Taproot. It was first proposed by Bitcoin Core contributor Gregory Maxwell as a solution to expand Bitcoin’s smart contract flexibility and potentially offer more privacy in the process. Much of Bitcoin’s technical community supports Taproot as a protocol upgrade, so you might be asking yourself: What will Bitcoin look like once it’s activated?
To answer that question and cover more of the technical specifics around Taproot, Bitcoin Magazine hosts this live panel featuring some of the space’s most insightful contributors. Moderated by Bitcoin Magazine Technical Editor Aaron van Wirdum (@AaronvanW), panelists include Andrew Poelstra of Blockstream and Adam Gibson and Chris Belcher (@chris_belcher_) of JoinMarket.
