Jimmy Song, one of the Bitcoin developers published own thoughts on the upcoming Bitcoin hardfork, called SegWit2X. Let's look what he thinks.
I just published “Segwit2x Game Theory Scenarios Part 1” https://t.co/klpkfVnBKq

I’m going to go through a few of the scenarios. Big caveat is that I don’t expect any of these scenarios to come to pass.
On his opinion, the real situation is much more complicated. Next six month after the hardfork will decide Bitcoin's destiny, due to the fact that miners need some time in order to figure out, which coin is more profitable.
A static, first order estimation of the current situation suggests that the current futures market price and current mining split is not stable economically. The people on different sides of the debate essentially stand on different sides of what will correct.
Jimmy also promised to publish more thoughts in the nearest future.
