The poll is not valid, since Segwit is not a hardfork, it would require a softfork. Personally, I am fine with Core as it currently is, but to help prevent future fractures in the community, Segwit with a block size increase and eventual implementation of the Lightning Network would probably be best.

I also do not want any hard forks.
Segwit is the way to go. It takes time.
 
Bitcoin is complicated. It's worth $20B. I honestly prefer a team of people who takes time to do things carefully and make sure everything rolls out as it was supposed to.
This issue should be addressed, it's a brake to a wider adoption. But I'd go with the safer way.

BU seems rushed. It feels like a hijack of Bitcoin. With it, only a few miners will decide which transaction goes through or not.
BU, get the fork out !

This hardfork is really annoying. We don't want something to change about bitcoin, and we don't need this new coin called BTU coin, if I'm not mistaken. This hardfork really affects the price of bitcoin right now, we are stocked in $1000, and it is taking too long to fluctuate in $1500, because it is the next target price, and because of this, I can't convert some of my bitcoin in fiat because of its price is really low.

But still, I'm going to wait until this Hardfork thingy ends, because I know this is just for temporary. It will not going to happen, because nobody wants this HARDFORK nonsense thing.

As much as possible I do not want hardfork because of the possibility of chain split.  But if it is essential and really needed why not.  We cannot avoid hardfork especially when developer need to upgrade the technology behind bitcoin.

The poll is not valid, since Segwit is not a hardfork,

this is what i wanted to say too.

and why does everyone speaks as if a fork is about to happen. well let me break your bubbles, it is not going to happen. it is the same 1 pool that switched and it is the same percentage hashrate and it will continue being the same hashrate %
and their number of nodes is not going to go any higher either.

I have voted for segwit and actually segwit is not the hardfork. Bitcoin unlimited will lead to a split of network which was already proven to have negative impact on every crypto that have gone through hard fork.

A Hard fork is never a good thing, because it creates confusion and it divides the community. You will always have a losing side and they are usually butt hurt and leave the scene as soon as their side has shown the white flag. Most of these people have no idea what the fight is all about and they join in for the wrong reasons.

Whatever we do, should be in the best interest of Bitcoin and not where you could make the most profits. < Bad Mining cartels have infiltrated Bitcoin and they are getting stronger by the day > ^grrrrrrrrrr^

To my point of view I do not support anything would harm the bitcoin and that's I think about any hard fork solution. I would like the gentle one that is, the segwit which is a soft fork and as was proposed by the core team. Unfortunately as the reality shows the hard fork is more likely to happen now than ever.

Easy question for everyone.
Do you want hard fork?

Personally I dont want any hard forks. Bitcoin is Bitcoin and it should be like this. I don`t want any changes. Growing fee is ok for me because it is still so cheap if you think about how big amounts of money you can send. For sure I don`t want any BU. It is stupid. People don`t know what to do now. We should finish this negotiate and leave it as it is.

The only possible change can be to connect with SegWit and everyone will be happy Wink

I do also do not like Hardfork since it has many bugs and will cause many problems later on bitcoins. Though I also do not want segwit but if I were to choose between the two I would rather choose Segwit over hardfork. Segwit is much safer than hardfork and the lightning network that segwit will support is so easy to use and even children ca understand it.

One factor is that I don't want to see fallen price, I like it higher than 1000$, if hard fork won't make any change in this task (I don't hope so) than it will be ok for me.
Transactions are cheap if you are sending huge amount of bitcoins but when I have to send 0.008 btc for example, than 0.0004 btc is higher fee in this situation.
I hope after hard forks, everything will become stable soon.

I do not want to make any changes to bitcoin at the moment. I think it is powerful enough to be able to grow, so we do not need any changes to make it worth less. BTU is a branch, I do not know if that is good or bad, but I find it is making people angry, and bitcoin is not liked, the value of bitcoin is declining and it is failing Compared to the other altcoin. This is bad and it should not happen. We need a solution to the current state of bitcoin.

I do not want a hardfork to happen. The hardfork is just a waste of time, the people who complain and nag about the transaction fees could just build their own Altcoin and do whatever they want to do.
It just seems like those guys doing the BU is just trying to distract people or gain more Bitcoin exposure with the media or something.

Bitcoin works right now so why should there be any major technical additions implemented to it?

Ok so many people dont want hardfork, so who decided to choose BU as an option? I see noone here want it. Someone was cheated or what? Or miners want it? buy why? I don`t know why the thread about hardfork in bitcoin even started.

not necessarily a network split, but HF is fine, we need those to upgrade because the 1mb size is death.   not convinced segwit is the solution.  much prefer EC

Also your poll is misleading because many equate network split with hardfork and you make it seem that BU will lead to network split which is not necessarily true.

No, a hard fork will be a terrible news for bitcoin and all the other coins, the price will come down and confidence in the technology will erode as the media will do an effort to spread the news and say that bitcoin is death or something.

I don't see why people who are educated in this aspect would possibly want a hard fork considering that it is absolutely not needed at this time.

Bitcoin works right now so why should there be any major technical additions implemented to it?
Your smartphone worked 5 generations ago, thankfully nobody had the same stance as you did. Bitcoin is constantly improving and evolving, and that is how it should be.

I really dont want bitcoin to hard fork, i think it would set us back years and would tank the price for 3 to 5 years.  I really dont get how so many people are against a bitcoin hardfork and yet the BU hashpower is rising.  Huh

I don't want hardfork, I don't want to see bitcoin get clone. I don't really understand with the code, technical system, algorithm, or anything about that, i am not that man. I am just a bitcoin user that already comfortable with bitcoin right now and don't want bitcoin get compete. I see what happened with eth, etc. I just curious to ask why, why we need it? Because of raising fee?
