Some true fans of SegWit2x don't give up. New SegWit2x project website just appeared. According to the website, approx. on the 28th of December, when block 501451 will be mined, fork will be launched.
As it is stated on the project website, it intends to implement the Segwit2X, which was expected in mid-November. At the same time, developers add, the futures trading on Segwit2X hardfork on some exchanges, including HitBTC, continues.
Commission and transaction speed within the Bitcoin network has reached extraordinary values. It is almost impossible to use it as a means of payment.
Our team will carry out the Bitcoin hard fork, which was planned for mid-November. At the same time, trading of its futures has been carried out on some exchanges for a long time. HitBTC is among them.
I promise that all BTC holders will receive not only B2X in the ratio of 1 to 1, but also a proportional number of Satoshi Nakamoto`s Bitcoins as a reward for their commitment to progress.
Founder of the project
As the project's founder, Jaap Terlouw is listed on the site, and the idea of the team headed by him is to resume and refine the suspended Segwit2X project and create a "really anonymous and instant bitcoin."
