What do you guys think about the recent and sudden rise in transactions on the bitcoin network? Seems to have slowed things down quite a bit. There's talk of segwit2x camp launching the attack to slow bitcoin down, or potentially it's a play made in bitcoin's best interests to keep miners from switching to BCH all at once.

Well what do you guys think?

I think "What are you talking about? The mempool is nearly empty and transaction fees are low.

There was an unusual raise of transactions yesterday. Over the weekend I saw about 100 - 500 pending tx in the mempool whenever I was watching. During the last week in average of about 1000 - 1500 pending tx.
Yesterday in the morning someone filled the mempool nearly instantly within some minutes with more than 30000 tx and also surprisingly high fees per tx.

Over the day those tx got confirmed and at the moment are about 10000 tx left.

I don't think this was a spam attack. So far it lasted more or less only one day.

Maybe one of the Chinese exchanges sent back the bitcoins to their owners before closing? I don't know. Could be anything...
