Taproot is coming November 2021 – How does it affect you?

The average Bitcoin user will not notice much unless they are using a new software update that utilizes a Taproot protocol such as Schnorr signature aggregation or smart contracts.

At first network improvements from Taproot implementation will be minor as initial hurdles in setting up/updating/running Taproot are overcome. Lightning network will be streamlined further by batched Schnorr signatures and reduce network congestion in meaningful amounts over the layer 2 sidechain.
