F2Pool is one of the biggest Bitcoin minning pools in the world. This is reported by the CoinDesk.

Despite the fact that SegWit proposal received support for giang amount of Bitcoin related companies and the majority of minning pools, some of the company doesn't support it.

F2Pool was one of the original signatory of the agreement, its operator Wang Chun is now among the proposal's detractors.

No. I don't support [the] Segwit2x hard fork.

Operator, F2Pool

The share of F2Pool in the Bitcoin network is 8.8%, which makes it the fifth largest pool. 

But still, other pools like BTCC and BitFure still support SegWit.

We are strong supporters of the New York Agreement (Segwit2X). We support scaling bitcoin and doing so responsibly. We hope that the hard fork part of Segwit2X will also be upheld.

BitFury has the same opinion.

The initial agreement for SegWit2x has not changed.

Also, Slush Pool, that did not sign the agreement, has not yet expressed its position. However, given the previous statements of the head of Slush Pool Marek Palatinus, who sharply criticized any attempt to implement any code different from what Bitcoin Core offers, we can expect that his answer will also be negative.

MyEtherWallet, a popular cryptocurrency wallet, in collaboration with the Swiss company Bity, introduced the Fiat service, which allows you to exchange digital assets for euros and Swiss francs without verification.

It is noted that the service is available to all bank account holders with an international bank account number (IBAN).

Bity is able to offer this kind of KYC-less Exit-to-Fiat gateway because it is compliant with the Swiss Anti Money Laundering Ordinance (AMLA). This, along with technology that helps verify proof of wallet-ownership, allows Bity to realize the friendliest kind of user experience — frictionless, secure AND regulatory compliant.

To use Exit-to-Fiat, the user must specify Bity as the service provider in the asset exchange section. You will also need to provide a phone number, bank account details and a billing address.

This information is transmitted to Bity to comply with legal requirements and is not stored by MyEtherWallet.

The maximum transaction size is limited to 5,000 francs (about $ 5,000).
