SegWit2x Hard Fork Failed to Activate
In case there were any remaining doubts, it now seems clear that the SegWit2x hard fork will not happen.
Companies like Coinbase were indeed taking into account that the SegWit2x hard fork could still happen.
The Fork That Wasn’tSegWit2x nodes — most notably btc1 — were programmed to fork away from the Bitcoin blockchain this afternoon (UTC) to create the SegWit2x blockchain and a new currency, often referred to as B2X.
However, not a single SegWit2x block has been mined since fork point, nor is there any indication that this is likely to happen.
NO2X?Despite the seeming failure of SegWit2x to take off in any way, it should be noted that there is technically no way to declare a fork like SegWit2x officially “dead” or “failed.” While unlikely, it’s always possible that the SegWit2x hard fork could proceed at some point in the future.
