Bitcoin

Bitcoin overcame the problem of scaling. This was initially maintained by the activation of the SegWit protocol on August 23, 2017, and Bitcoin was the second, Litecoin  passed first on May 2017. SegWit is now accepted by more than 30%. Decrease in the average transaction cost by 99% since December 2017 was due to SegWit. The most important step in scaling was the adoption of the Lightning Network protocol, which acts on top of the blockchain and allows instant payments almost free. He also supports cross-chain transactions  with the help of atomic swaps. Since its launch in January 2009, bitcoin has been functioning almost uninterruptedly and has never been hacked. Therefore, bitcoin remains the backbone of crypto-currencies.
