The Consensus of Bitcoin International Roundtable Forum about the Bitcoin blockchain after Segwit2x

Recently, under the call of the majority of Bitcoin users, and with the support of the major mining pools, miners, trading platforms and other industry chain friends, Bitcoin network began to upgrade SegWit2x.

segwit2x
Based on some misunderstandings after the network upgrade, the Bitcoin International Roundtable Forum held an emergency meeting on July 24, 2017. At the meeting we reached a consensus:

We still believe that the blockchain upgraded the SegWit2x protocol (including SW and 2M) is the only chain that can be named with “bitcoin (BTC)”. BCC is just an altcoin by copying the bitcoin chain and modifying a certain code. Please be aware.

    2x and BCC are altcoins and are not Bitcoin

    By their own logic Segwitcoin is more of an alt coin than BCC

    I don’t really get argument of this article, did miners agree to support 2mb hard fork during the meeting?

    BCC bit connects coin, why is it even mentioned?

    “Bitcoin International Roundtable Forum”

    Judging by the name list there is not international representation.

    Judging by the content of the brackets after each name, this is a Bitcoin business cartel of miners and exchanges.

    “We still believe that the blockchain upgraded the SegWit2x protocol (including SW and 2M) is the only chain that can be named with “bitcoin (BTC)”.

    With consensus rule you can believe as hard as you want – that does not make it true. The 2x (“2M”) part of “segwit2x” is contentious and is not a prerequisite for Bitcoin to be Bitcoin.

    What they’re saying is they want to give the impression that they intend to stick to the NYA.

    BCC is just an altcoin by copying the bitcoin chain and modifying a certain code.

    Funny that its worded this way – probably by Jihan Wu who is sitting at the roundtable. Just an innocuous altcoin then, eh? Not a BitcoinABC hard fork and pre-mine ICO?

    Wonder what they’ll say when the 2x never happens.

    What will you say if it does happen, and operates completely free of Core?

    Great to see a diverse group of major companies in the Bitcoin world reiterating their support for the 2x hardfork and properly stating that it can be called Bitcoin and “Bitcoin Jr.” without the 2x will not be.

    “The Consensus of Bitcoin International Roundtable Forum”

    This is specifically not consensus, not bitcoin and not international 🙂

    As it should be.

    Bitcoin Cash: changes a single variable to scale Bitcoin according to Satoshi as designed, added protection for a hard fork scenario.

    Bitcoin SegWit: Changes basically everything about how blocks are constructed and drastically alters incentive structures, and deviates from Satoshi’s design completely.

    Which one of those sounds like the alt?
