Well, Segwit2x seems to have failed definitively. The miners' support is simply too small.

I think this is the best for both small blockers and big blockers (they have their BCH anyway), and maybe even opens the way for a block size increase in the far future (2019+) with Core support, but for now Segwit is sufficient (it must be used more, however ...).

By the way, I see that my BCH call in this thread ...

Now that Segwit2x failed*, "hardcore" big blockers will likely try to push Bitcoin Cash up, for it to become a serious Bitcoin competitor. That's why I expect stable and even higher BCH prices in the near future - $1000 are not out of reach, I think.

... wasn't that bad, I was even conservative Grin

That was a good call. I don't think I would have been as bullish on BCH given how biased I was against the need to split the chain in the first place. I'm less biased against it now at this point, I just want a stable ecosystem. I am becoming more and more tired of BTC's inability to handle the crush of transactions. I still don't want to have to support BCH, but they have 8 times the capacity to handle transactions at this point, and that lends to more stability. If BTC can't get its act together, I'm not going to be particularly sad to see it supplanted by a coin that can scale.
