SegWit allows the block size to go to 4 MB and allow for large scale scaling. That means about 12 transactions from current about 6, depending on the type.

Now a bit on the upcoming fork in November called segwit2x that could lead to yet another split in the bitcoin blockchain this November. Hold your BTC tokens, there could be a blip, yes, and more fighting communities, but isn’t this all for the greater good of this revolutionary technology? Segwit works on old nodes as well, segwit2X doesn’t. Simple. It may or mayn’t happen at all. But never rule out the craziness in this market.
