 If you don't know, then why entitle your topic with a statement?  At least qualify it with a question mark.

This is what I'm hearing but I cannot find anything definitive. Is this why BTC price has started moving?

 Not close.
Also, support appears to be declining.

edit: Segwit was @ 36% of blocks last week and now is back down to 32% of blocks

it is the same amount as it was before, nothing has changed. that 4% is just the simple change up and down because of the way finding a block works. it is not a guarantee to find a block, it is a chance!
sometimes you find 420 blocks sometimes 425 and sometimes 418 for example.

SegWit's blocks have gone up slightly since yesterday.

SegWit's hashrate has remained nearly the same, unless I'm missing a pool that's switched or something.

Blocks are subject to variance.  Hashrate is not.  For now, SegWit is not close to activation and it'll only happen when/if miners who are signalling for BU decide to switch and/or undecided miners decide to signal SegWit.

Has SegWit finally been signaled?

UASF to activate Segwit is picking up needed momentum. This would certainly cause a spike in price and confidence.

Is there a viable third option, not BU & something not controlled by a central corporation which will eventually make Bitcoin worthless to anyone with a brain?

FYI: We are planning a fun, harmless "10% Attack" on the ETH/ICO Bubble Game.

This is what will have to happen. Time to just push it through, hell to the miners who are aligned with Jihan and Erik.

 Hashrate is usually calculated based on found blocks so it probably also fluctuates with luck... Though this recent variance is greater than any since inception.

Is there one? I don't think so. I am fed up with all this. Perhaps BU is the only viable option now which can be implemented? But I am also not in favor of giving up to the blackmail by a certain section of the miners.

Do you have more details? Which feeds/posts are making you think it's "on the borderline"? I'm not a heavy Twitter user, that's why I'm asking.

The only reason there could be a step forward to Segwit adoption is a possible UASF. I don't consider it the best idea as of now (because of the chain split danger), but maybe it's the only way to really move some pieces on the chess board (I still favour this solution, but it seems to have lost traction).

You can check https://coin.dance/blocks from time to time.
Now it shows 34.1% for SegWit. Pretty far from 95%.

Pretty funny that "It's on the borderline" statement. Maybe that's for Litecoin Smiley

No, there's actually been forward progress on activating segwit at last. The discussions have all been private at the moment between pools and some mediators but the twitter feeds are starting to leak information about how much progress has been made, so I retweeted one of the relevant posts.

It never really had any traction, just like any solution that mixes a bit of every scaling proposal, because unfortunately the general opinion seems to be "we either have this or that"

No, there's actually been forward progress on activating segwit at last. The discussions have all been private at the moment between pools and some mediators but the twitter feeds are starting to leak information about how much progress has been made, so I retweeted one of the relevant posts.

Following my previous reply, I think it's important to detail that this isn't exclusively about SegWit and since most opinions seem to be like what I described above, this actually doesn't really mean a lot.

Interesting way to downplay its relevance to segwit activation, but okay, you make of it what you will. Time will tell now.

Ah, Barry Silbert's initiative. I read about it earlier today. Thanks.

The initiative has my support, although from my point of view a solution where there is only one hard fork necessary and block size is growing slower but has no hard cap, like the proposal I linked above, is better. But for now it's important to get Segwit through.

It sure is, can you imagine a Bitcoin community post segwit? No constant attack from BU shills, no yearly scaling debate with spam attacks. Imagine how much the coin could actually grow.

I cannot see SegWit ever being signalled, because these groups are way to far apart. I also cannot see Bitcoin Unlimited being implemented for

the same reason. They will have to come up with something new, and just use SegWit on other Alt coins, like LiteCoin. It is a pity, because it

solves other problems with Bitcoin too... and not just a slight Block size upgrade.  Angry
