As the possible Bitcoin hardfork comes closer, more and more companies refuse to support it.

According to BitGo engineer, Jameson Lopp, Bitcoin mining pool F2Pool has stopped signalling for SegWit2x.

For now, F2Pool is the third largest mining pool which in its hash power is the second only to Antpool and BTC.top. Its share in the total network hashrate is about 13.19%.

On top of that, the cryptocurrency platform WEX.nz also states that it will not support the Segwit2x and does not intend to introduce new trading pairs in case of its implementation

Thus, the company argues that the management of the exchange considers the possible hardfork to be questionable both for trades and for the cryptocurrency system as a whole.
Though, WEX team details, the hardfork-thing will not interrupt the regular operating mode of the exchange and will not stop the trade.

Chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Jay Clayton said that bitcoin needs more regulation for listing on large exchanges. It is reported by CNBC.

If [investors] think there’s the same rigor around that price discovery as there is on the Nasdaq or New York Stock Exchange ... they are sorely mistaken. We have to get to a place where we can be confident that trading is better regulated.
 

Jay Clayton

Chairman, SEC

He was talking about listing conditions for bitcoin itself, and not derivatives, such as CME futures.
