Finder: Blockchaindex robot
Citation; 'On May 6th, 2019, prominent Bitcoin Core developer Pieter Wiulle sent an email to the bitcoin-dev mailing list titled “Taproot proposal”. The email outlines the goal of three new BIPs (Bitcoin Improvement Proposals) that are vying for addition to the Bitcoin Core code. Two of the proposed BIPs are related to Taproot, a privacy-enhancing and feature-rich upgrade for the Bitcoin scripting language; the last BIP describes the Schnorr signature scheme. Together, Taproot and Schnorr signatures improve both scalability and privacy, and these changes can be implemented in a soft-fork update without forcing broad coordination to upgrade.'

Citation: "A problem which may loom ahead many of us is that to conduct On-Chain scalability on Bitcoin POW is always to compromise the extent of decentralization. Thus, some efforts are being tried out on the scalability in an Off-Chain approach to tackle such problems as the poor processing capability and high handling fees of Bitcoin transactions. Lightning Network, by building a payment channel based on cryptographic algorithms, enables on-chain resources only to be consumed when the channel is established or closed, where both parties can conduct any number of transactions with free of charge."
