In mid-June, a “Speedy Trial” blocking phase was prepared to update the Bitcoin Taproot network, which was blocked at block height 687,285 and implemented by the Bitcoin mining pool Slushpool. Taproot is slated to go live on the network today, Nov. 14, 2021, and the upgrade is believed to be one of the biggest changes the protocol has had since the launch of Segregated Witness (Segwit) in 2017.
Bitcoin Taproot Upgrade is expected to be on November 14th. activated
Taproot is expected to be activated on November 14th, 2021 after a blocking period last summer and will go live in the mainnet. When activated, Taproot improves the network’s scripting functions and can use Schnorr signatures (BIP340). Taproot is also expected to augment Bitcoin transactions by enabling some kind of complex, clever transaction.
Schnorr signatures can help with transaction scaling as they are more compact than ECDSA. Schnorr also enables key aggregation and offers a wide range of multi-signature transaction schemes. While Taproot (BIP341) creates new rules for the new Pay-to-Taproot (P2TR) output type, the upgrade is a soft fork and, like Segwit, is fully opt-in.
“Taproot is a proposed Bitcoin protocol upgrade that could be used as an upwardly compatible soft fork. By combining the Schnorr signature scheme with MAST (Merklized Alternative Script Tree) and a new scripting language called Tapscript, Taproot will extend the flexibility of smart contracts to Bitcoin while also offering plenty of privacy by allowing users to mask complex smart contracts like a regular one Bitcoin transaction. ” document “Activate Taproot” in the Github notes.
“The price will rise in the range of $ 85,000 to $ 90,000 in the coming weeks”

On November 12th a post Bitcoin market update from prettyrader.com says market sentiment could rally after the taproot upgrade. Despite BTC’s current volatility after hitting $ 69,000, Decentrader said analysts remain “bullish” about the price increase.
“We remain optimistic about the high timeframes and continue to expect a rally into the $ 85,000 to $ 90,000 region, which is the 1.618 Fib retracement, in the coming weeks.”
In general, people believe that once the network improves scalability and interchangeability, the upgrade can lead to a new ATH. Bitpanda Pro has Twitter account to discuss via Taproot today, and note that the upgrade comes at a very opportune time.
“The Taproot upgrade comes at a very optimistic point in time. Both for the entire crypto market, which recently exceeded $ 3 trillion for the first time, and for Bitcoin itself, which has hit new ATHs several times in the past few weeks. “
However, Bitpanda also admits that the value of the upgrade may have been priced in and the latest ATH is a spike at $ 69,000.
“However, it appears that the bulls will still have the strength to push the price higher once the upgrade goes into effect. Taproot makes Bitcoin better, more efficient and more private, which could explain a higher price. “
