- How is SegWit a soft fork? 1 answer
I'm trying to understand how my node would interperet a SegWit transaction if I do not upgrade.
- Even if I do not upgrade, I should be receiving the exact same block data as everyone else, correct?
If so, let's say my node receives a block that contains a segwit transaction (i.e. one with a
[marker][flag] and some
[witness] data). I'm not sure how my node is going to interpret the data...
- If the
, does my node read this as being 0 inputs and 1 output, and still consider this transaction valid?
- If so, how can it go about recreating the TXID from the
[version][txins][txouts][locktime]if the transaction data is of the format
Basically, I don't understand how my node could receive transactions with
[witness] data and still consider those blocks to be valid.
