Crypto News & ICO Reviews
Any hard fork block size increase would be contentious and not accepted by bitcoin participants (not even close); and they know this. Not to mention that it wouldn't be a drop in the bucket for the scaling desired to make bitcoin common in day-to-day life for a decent percentage of people in the world. When I see people write that they just want a hard fork 2mb block size bump… smh. Why? What would that even accomplish? Nothing! If anything it's a terrible precedent that hard forks are on the table for who knows what in the future.
Combine that with the very fact that the Lightning Network doesn't need segwit to function exposes the opposition to their true reasons for opposing segwit, which is to pump alt coins. If someone argues that they don't want segwit because it enables Layer 2, well, L2 is already possible so preventing segwit doesn't really hurt bitcoin! Offchain transactions happen a lot already without segwit.
The deceitful half-truths and, not to mention, outright lies in the posts/comments are even further evidence that something disingenuous is going on.
I'm sure there are some that are disenfranchised by their ideas being rejected by the community but I don't believe it merits anyone to create this much drama unless they are intentionally causing drama to increase their alt portfolio.
BTW – someone needs to recreate the Mr. Bean roller coaster gif so that it shows him unimpressed with the threat of the day like XT, Classic, and BU instead of price swings.
