In Bitcoin core, when generating a new address for receiving a payment, you get this dialogue:
There is a tick-box for "Generate Bech32 address".
I understand that this is a relatively new feature not yet supported by all wallets. The tooltip help claims that
Bech32 addresses ... are cheaper to spend from and offer better protection against typos"
- How much cheaper than the "P2SH wrapped SegWit address"? (and why?)
- Don't P2SH wrapped SegWit addresses include check-digits at the end?
I did find a 52-minute Youtube video where someone with a familiar name was giving a presentation on Bech32 but I'm hoping that it can be explained simply and concisely for the non-technical end-user wondering whether to click that check-box or not.
