There Are Now Two Taproot Activation Clients, Here’s Why

- Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Core 0.21.0-based Taproot Client 0.1 are starting out as compatible with one another. This will remain the case if miners activate Taproot before the Speedy Trial deadline. In that case, Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Taproot nodes will both start enforcing the Taproot upgrade on Bitcoin block 709632 (November).
