The company claims that the new hardfork could be unsafe and is not supported by the Bitcoin Core developers. Indeed, Bitcoin.org has just published a “blacklist” of websites that continue to support the SegWit2x hardfork, arguing that storing any BTC on such services is strongly not recommended.
We’ve always loved SegWit and we see a small increment (2mb) in the size of the block as a good idea as it would relieve pressure, lower fees and give some time to other more definitive scaling alternatives such as the Lightning Network to develop. Nevertheless, we can’t pretend to be bitcoin “scaling experts”. We don’t believe in trying to force a change bitcoin’s core developers don’t feel safe with.
The company also highlights that they haven’t seen proper support and they "don’t like what they currently see on the btc1 code repository in terms of technical considerations and open source collaboration".
SurBTC argues to be defending the interests of a growing Latin American user community that feels strongly against a new contentious hardfork. Thus, if the hardfork does happen, the exchange could eventually list both assets but will allow for sure its users to at least withdraw both. Due to practical reasons, SurBTC will continue to list BTC, and they will incorporate B2X (or the names that catch on among the industry) later.

Property Coin (PCX) is the first security token backed by a professionally managed portfolio of fix and flip real estate and loans. PCX is managed by Aperture, a California-based real estate technology and investment company. 100% of profits from investing in real estate assets will be reinvested, buying additional real estate assets for tokenholders, which should increase the market value of PCX. Property Coin merges traditional securitization technology into the coin format, and is being created in conjunction with one of the most respected law firms in structured finance. We have been beta testing our systems and methods since 2016, making real world property investments with our own capital. This testing has resulted in the rejection of approximately 99.8% of available investment opportunities and we select only 0.2% of opportunities viewed. To date we have produced over 50% unlevered IRRs on our investments.

The Kryptoin ETF System is a patent-pending platform that enables a digital token to be exchange-traded with a basket of cryptocurrencies that represents any index or sector. The ETF application integrates with any blockchain to enable that cryptocurrency to be included in the exchange trade. All ETF tokens are inherently asset-backed. The smart contract is utilized to bind specific requirements of the in-kind exchange creating a decentralized asset management system. Kryptoin ETF Tokens behave like traditional ETFs found on a stock exchange but the underlying assets are digital currencies. They are exchange traded by a Kryptoin Trading Desk and can be liquidated on a digital exchange. ETFs tokens can be assembled to track any index or benchmark of any sector or niche market globally.
We consider cryptocurrency as a new perspective type of collateral that can change the market for secured loans tremendously.

And crypto owners wish to benefit from their digital assets and preserve them for the long term hoping to gain more value. The smart contracts on the eCoinomic.net platform will solve these needs. Crypto owners will get an opportunity to obtain fiat loans using digital assets as collateral. Institutional investors and family offices will explore a new mortgage market by issuing fiat loans to crypto community. 81% of the funds gathered during the Token Sale will be used to form the Reserve.
