The DigiSync hard-fork upgrade was named after the major synchronization speed improvements for Core nodes. In April 2017 DigiByte became the first major cryptocurrency blockchain (in the Top 100 of CoinMarketCap) to implement Segregated Witness (SegWit) via the DigiSync hard-fork. The technical milestone laid the foundation for cross chain transactions and atomic swaps, while also resolving the transaction malleability bug that affected all UTXO blockchains.
