The largest community of bitcoin traders called Whalepool has announced its refusal to accept the SegWit2x hard fork. It had insisted on adding it to the list of industry representatives supporting Bitcoin Core developers.

The list was launched by the CEO and founder of Coinkite Rodolfo Nowak.

The Whalepool administration asked the Canadian entrepreneur to add the community to the nob2x list, and the answer was not long in coming

The list of nob2x includes companies and organizations that have not signed or withdrawn from the so-called New York agreement, where a decision was made on SegWit2x behind closed doors and without the participation of Bitcoin Core developers. It is expected that the hardfork will be held during the second week of November.

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.
