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. 

As we all know, Lee is not the biggest fan of the SegWit2x proposal. The man even has a particular tag in his nickcname on Twitter - [NO2X]. 

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

On October 27, Charlie Lee revealed that GBMiners, a major mining pool operator, has stopped signaling for the SegWit2x hard fork expected to occur in mid-November.

Former Coinbase executive considers this move to be the prove of the insolvency of SegWit2x. 

It is also noteworthy, that earlier this month, F2Pool and Slush Pool, stopped signaling for the SegWit2x hard fork as well. Now, they seem to be skyrocketing.

Binance has updated the application for the Android OS. Now users can buy cryptocurrency using their credit cards.

In particular, the feature of buying Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash with your credit card is now available.

At the same time, the launch of the Binance Singapore crypto-fiat exchange took place. So far, only one trading pair is available to users of the site - BTC / SGD, but later in the listing other coins may appear.

Singapore users need not only to create an account, but also to link it to an account in the local Xfers payment service, which provides cryptowallet approved by local regulators.

It is noteworthy that earlier Xfers was a partner of Coinbase, when the latter launched its services in Singapore, but relations between the companies were terminated.
