F2Pool withdraws Support
BitGo engineer Jameson Lopp jubilantly posted to Twitter this morning that Bitcoin mining pool F2Pool has stopped signalling for SegWit2x.
F2Pool stops signaling SegWit2X support.
With the loss of F2Pool, 85% of miners are still signalling their support to SegWit2x, but F2Pool’s defection triples the hash power of the “NO2X” miners.
The loss of F2Pool’s support makes the SegWit2x hard fork much less likely to occur.
The SegWit2x hard fork may still happen; 85% support from miners is likely enough to push it through.
