95% Miners “Potentially” Activating Taproot

Taproot.watch, the website built by Hampus Sjöberg for people to follow along Bitcoin soft fork upgrade Taproot’s path to activation, has added a data visualization that showcases the total “potential” acceptance by network hash rate.

By adding the “potential” hash rate share, the website now enables Bitcoiners to quickly get a better sense of how likely the soft fork is to be locked in as a protocol upgrade for November. Mining pools that have mined at least one “green” block (i.e., a block that signals Taproot activation) will count toward the new metric, while the “current total” is summarized as before: the percentage of hash rate signaling for activation based on pools’ most recently mined block and hash rate share.
