Will Taproot Increase Bitcoin Price?

It’s been a little over a year since the last major Bitcoin protocol upgrade, SegWit, was activated. Since then, the Bitcoin community has been hard at work on the next upgrade, which is called Taproot.

Taproot is scheduled to activate sometime in late 2021 or early 2022.

So what is Taproot? Taproot is a proposed change to the Bitcoin protocol that would improve privacy and scalability. Specifically, Taproot would make it possible for multiple parties to jointly control a Bitcoin address.

NOTE: WARNING: Making predictions about the potential impact of Taproot on Bitcoin prices is extremely speculative and should not be taken as investment advice. There is no guarantee that Taproot will have any effect on Bitcoin prices, and any decisions made based on such predictions could lead to financial losses. Investing in cryptocurrencies involves a high level of risk and caution should be exercised when making any investment decisions.

This would allow them to create more complex transactions without having to reveal their entire transaction history to the world.

In addition, Taproot would make it easier to use so-called “scriptless scripts.” These are transactions that can be verified without having to run the entire transaction through a Bitcoin script.

This would further improve privacy and scalability, as well as make it possible to create more complex transactions.

So far, Taproot seems to have strong support from the Bitcoin community. If it activates successfully, it could be a big positive for Bitcoin, both in terms of price and adoption.
