The developers of Bitcoin Core, the official Bitcoin client, refuse to include the SegWit2x code in the current protocol. The announcement is posted on the official Twitter of Bitcoin Core:

Thus, Bitcoin Core references a page on github.com which contains a request to include the SegWit2x code in the current protocol in order to make both versions compatible.

Bitcoin Core developers reject the inclusion of the SegWit2x code in the current protocol Bitcoin Core developers on reddit.com

Earlier this month, the Segwit2x developers team confirmed that the Bitcoin upgrade is to happen at block 494,784. However, it is emphasized that this code, although including the support for Segregated Witness, will be incompatible with the current version of Bitcoin Core.

It's also noteworthy, that last week, the Bitwala platform team announced its refusal to support the expected hard fork. The representatives noted that while signing the so-called New York Agreement, they did not know that it was accepted without the participation of the Bitcoin Core developers.

In the future, ACDX plans to reach a global level, but first of all it will gather a client base in Asia, using the connections of Cheung and partners in Hong Kong and China. In preparation for the launch, she intends to raise $ 40 million through the sale of tokens and shares in her business to crypto funds, private investment firms and family capital management companies in Europe and Asia. 

We have over $4 million so far and most of the money comes from our own funds. We are in talks with potential investors and likely to announce new investments in the next two months.
