Bitcoin News now admin /

Today marks the official release of Bitcoin Core 22.0, the 22nd major release of Bitcoin’s original software client launched by Satoshi Nakamoto almost 13 years ago.

Overseen by Bitcoin Core lead maintainer Wladimir van der Laan, this latest major release was developed by well over a hundred contributors in a span of about eight months. The result of roughly 800 pull requests, Bitcoin Core 22.0 is the first major Bitcoin Core release to support the upcoming Taproot protocol upgrade, while also offering several other improvements over previous Bitcoin Core versions.
