Charlie Lee, the Litecoin creator, is known as one of the most honest developers in the cryptocurrency world. Indeed, he never shies away from any discussion on the hottest topics with the public and always tries to be open and honest about the problems. 

Now, as the hypothetical SegWit2x activation is becoming closer and closer, Charlie Lee shares his opinion on this subject on Twitter. The man talks about the SegWit2x activation and about the results of the poll that was conducted by him a bit earlier.

As shown, more than a half of the cryptocurrency enthusiasts don't support Bitcoin hardforking in November to double the blocksize.  

As soon as the Litecoin creator is concerned, the man goes on explaining why he is against the activation, as well. 

I am against Segwit2x hardfork in November due to 3 reasons: lack of urgent need, lack of replay protection, lack of consensus.

The man details that "if we have any of the 3 things I listed, then a hardfork is called for and would be fine".

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
