BitPico has abandoned the SegWit2X implementation

One of the last supporters of SegWit2x hardfork now refuse to implement it

The bitPico mining pool stated that it is refusing to implement the SegWit2X hardfork.

Last week, a group of SegWit2X supporters, including developer Jeff Garzick, BitGo head Mike Belsh and Cihan Wu of Bitmain, said that they were abandoning their plans because they did not see consensus within the community.

After a short time, a statement of a little-known bitPico mining pool appeared, claiming that it controls about 30% of the bitcoine hash and intends to implement it in any case.

However, as follows from a letter on the Linux Foundation, now this statement is also withdrawn.

We are backing out of the SegWit2x effort; the markets have spoken. People who like big blocks have Bitcoin Cash and people who like Layer-2 Networks, Compact Binary Transactions, UDP FEC Global LEO SAT coverage, encrypted TCP channels, experimenting and etc have Bitcoin. We are immediately reverting all SegWit2x specific changes in our codebase (2MB block size logic, DNS Seeds, segwit2x service flag, etc). Lastly; In the future we will be simply following the longest chain of work and doing more R&D instead because this working group has been nothing but a waste of time for everybody involved except the pump and dumpers and the inside traders. May the fork be with you...

Craig Wright to Claim to be Satoshi Again

He explained that the false information surrounding Bitcoin and blockchain-derived systems made him come out of the shadows
18 February 2019   96

A senior researcher at nChain, Craig Wright, sent the Commission on the US Exchange Commodity Trading (CFTC) introductory information on cryptocurrency mechanics in response to a request from the Office. But even in the official document he did not miss the opportunity to remind everyone that it was he who allegedly was the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

My name is Dr. Craig Wright and under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto I completed a project I started in 1997 that was filed with the Australian government in part under an AusIndustry project registered with the Dept. of Innovation as BlackNet. Ethereum is a poorly designed copy of bitcoin designed with the purpose of completing the promise of smart contracts and scripting that were delivered within bitcoin but which were hobbled by the core developers of bitcoin who sought to enable anonymous transactions to exist within the system. 
 

Craig Wright

"Satoshi"

Earlier in February, the “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” announced that he possesses a patent, allegedly capable of restricting the right to issue JPM Coin.

In October 2017, Craig Wright made a mistake confirming that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto.
