Trader WhalePanda, referring to Reddit, reports that AntPool and, mining pools controlled by Bitmain, have no longer been processing SegWit transactions in the Bitcoin network for the past four days.


The tweet provoked a heated discussion. The –johoe user pointed out that AntPool has already managed to produce four blocks in a row, thus it has filled the mempool with SegWit transactions.
