Lately, there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the Segwit2x proposal’s upcoming November hard fork. According to reports, the mining organization F2Pool doesn’t support the 2MB fork, and the pool has also stated it hasn’t been running the BTC1 code.

From the looks of it, the Segwit2x proposal is looking grimmer every single day. Now the operator of the mining pool F2 Pool, Wang Chun, has told the publication, Coindesk, over email correspondence his pool does not support the upcoming 2MB block size increase. Wang Chun further tells the news outlet that the pool has not been running the BTC1 (Segwit2x) code base.

F2Pool simultaneously support everything that you could think of and absolutely nothing.

They were originally against SegWit and block size increases but later came to favour SegWit.  They joined in with the NYA but now are (probably) giving up on it.  With the amount that their position changes, I wouldn't even trust them not to support the hard fork in November.

Personally I think it'll be a total bloodbath in terms of price if there isn't a clearly leading chain by a month or so after the fork.  This isn't like Bitcoin Cash where there's a clear minority and clear majority.

Not so long ago he changed his positions few times with Segwit activation on Litecoin. It would not surprise me if something similar happens with SegWit2x as well. Lil drama queen.
