So, there is apparently another fork coming, unless of course someone compromises. The fork will be Segwit2x.

On coindance it shows that over 90% of miners are signalling for segwit2x. If there is a split does that mean 90% of the miners will switch from core and support the segwit2x chain? If not, what percentage of support does everyone think will switch to this chain?

This split is of concern and I think much more worrisome than the bch split.

Here's what you need to know.

Basically, governments bribed miners into getting their own developer team on board to push their agenda.

Jeff Garzik (main dev on segwit2x) is working tightly with governments in blockchain analysis and KYC stuff.

This is another government takeover of the bitcoin brand, and this time is more serious because they managed to bribe a ton of hashrate.

It all depends on what the holders do, and not a single whale supports GarzikCoin, so I suspect this will be another failure for the big blockers.

I agree with you on segwit2x, I support core.

Actually, The whole thing reminds me of the movie Wall Street where Michael Douglas is bagging out the Bluestar Airline, and trying to convince everyone to side with him. Martin Sheen, on the other hand is saying they should stick with the original management team since they built the airline up from nothing.

What worries me though is that if 90% of the miners abandon core, it doesn’t matter if the users don't support the segwit2x chain. How the hell is the original core chain going to work with only 10% of the miners.
