A popular information resource about Bitcoin publishes a "blacklist" of websites that continue to support the SegWit2x hardfork

The company believes, that the upcoming hardfork is a backwards incompatible change to the Bitcoin network. This hardfork is not supported by the majority of the Bitcoin users and developers and is therefore a contentious hardfork. Accoroding to, the supporters of this agreement are "shifting their users to an alternative currency (an altcoin) which is incompatible with Bitcoin".

Therefore storing any BTC on services such as Coinbase, Bitpay and Xapo is strongly not recommended. By storing BTC on these services, you could find that after the hardfork, your BTC has been renamed to something else or replaced entirely with the new altcoin. team

The best way to ensure that your BTC is protected is to download the latest version of Bitcoin Core and transfer out any BTC stored on services that are a signatory to this agreement, the company details.

As for mobile wallets, bewares that spending money from a mobile wallet during a hardfork is dangerous as you will be vulnerable to many attacks as your wallet is not aware that the miners are breaking the consensus rules on the longest chain.

Twitter CEO: BTC to be Single Currency in Decade

Jack Dorsey has a strong belief in the future potential of bitcoin
22 March 2018   20

CEO Twitter Jack Dorsey believes that after 10 years bitcoin will bypass the importance of the US dollar and become the most relevant currency in the world, which will be used by billions of users around the world. The businessman said this in a commentary to the British edition of The Times.

The world ultimately will have a single currency, the internet will have a single currency. I personally believe that it will be bitcoin.As more and more people have it, those things go away. There are newer technologies that build off of blockchain and make it more approachable.

Jack Dorsey

CEO, Twitter

Despite the fact that at the moment the bitcoin continues to experience certain problems that, according to Dorsey, prevent him from becoming an "effective currency," further development of the protocol, he believes, will inevitably lead to necessary changes.

The last thought of Jack Dorsey, who is also the founder of the payment start-up Square, seems to refer to the Lightning Network technology - the second layer of bitcoin scaling, which allows for instant and exceptionally cheap microtransactions.
