Nice job Romano! Many good quotes!

For the lazy people these are his contributions:

“What we are seeing is a stalling tactic from miners,” Viacoin lead developer Romano told Bitcoin Magazine. “They know that if SegWit activates on altcoins, it will make blocking it on Bitcoin even less credible.”

SegWit signaling will start soon on Viacoin, but Romano is not very optimistic about quick activation: “It seems more likely they want to refrain from activating Segregated Witness on altcoins because that would give them even less reason to hold off activation on Bitcoin.”

Romano went even further. “Maybe F2Pool are under some hidden pressure or coercion, and are trying to make a plausible cover story. It is well known that Jihan Wu of Bitmain controls the supply of about 70 percent of the mining hardware. His mining pool is blocking SegWit on Bitcoin, and he is able to exert pressure on miners and pools by sanctioning new equipment sales should they go against his wishes.”

If it was easy, everybody would be doing it

But not even 3 days later...

In conclusion: I was right. Jihan Wu is lying. He does pressure miners & pools. He just got exposed

So you can not implement segwit until Jihan Wu changes his attitude as he is behind Bitcoin unlimited???

Now Jihan secret is out, I don't think Jihan can keep blocking Segwit on F2Pool.

Also they are blocking it atm, do you think Bitcoin Unlimited will win?
Are we planning to sell Bitcoins now?

Do we see Bitcoin Core devs stopping with Segwit because 1 Chinese man child is playing around?

quitting is not an option.
I'm an honest Developer with a good reputation, I told Bitcoin magazine the situation and how I see it.

But hey, F2Pool might stop blocking Segwit on altcoins in order to clean up his name.
That would be the right strategy.

But hey who am I right? I don't hold anyone back to buy Trump, Lepen and some weed coins.
Personally I just look at a longterm perspective. They can't keep blocking it.

Meanwhile, I just keep improving Viacoin Core code & extra testing.
Also working on new stuff like ElectrumX

Does Jihan wait for bribes or what? He knows he's got power now and he has the option to make lots of money. Maybe he suppresses the market for a long time, and finally announce that BU won't be realized => BTC to moon

This is surely possible, but even more likely is that he just does not want to admit he was wrong Cheesy

For a decentralized coin, there sure is a lot of power in the hands of petty people sometimes. The good thing to remember is that behavior like this will ensure a lot of people will start bringing people like that down.

If it was easy, everybody would be doing it
