Well-known crypto specialist and researcher in the field of smart contracts Nick Szabo added to his name on Twitter the abbreviation [NO2X], which serves as a distinctive sign of opponents of the SegWit2x hardfork.

It happened on the night of Wednesday, November 8, and many users paid attention to this fact. Nick Szabo himself has not made any announcements about SegWit2x's hardfork, in his Twitter feed there was a retweet of bitcoin-investor Stephen Cole with an attached screenshot of Alex Morkos's quotation from Chaincode Labs.

The highlighted fragment of the text emphasizes that the developers of SegWit2x have not implemented protection against replaying transactions, and calls on companies still supporting hardfork to ask themselves why they are part of this most massive destabilization of the network over the entire history of bitcoin .

Nika Szabo, who in 1998 developed the algorithm of decentralized digital currency and called it "digital gold" (bit gold), is often associated with Satoshi Nakamoto, although he himself denies his involvement in the creation of bitcoin.

The fact that Sabo added the abbreviation [NO2X] to his name on Twitter, Litecoin's creator Charlie Lee noticed too.
