[Bitcoin-segwit2x] We are all bitcoin

At the risk of fanning off-topic discussion on a technical list, may I point out that SegWit2x is an upgrade to the bitcoin consensus rules. At and after the Nov HF, the upgraded chain shall be bitcoin, that is not in dispute. Also, core devs are NOT bitcoin.

Scott, maybe also check out: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Segwit_support and see which core developer / contributors are supporting b2x (spoiler: none).

So you are probably right, that the newspeak that segwit2x IS bitcoin, is not as true as some mailing list members here wants to it to be.

I have NEVER seen a twitter poll on bitcoin that had a statistically relevant sample size. But also bear in mind that by it’s very nature, twitter creates bubbles where like minded people follow each other. Basing any analysis on what are effectively straw polls in a bubble will not yield any useful insights.

You’ll also do well reading the whitepaper (I suggest doing it with a clear mind, so a good rest beforehand would do you no harm).

I apologize for my previous post. I just learned more about SegWit2x
and saw the twitter polls saying SegWit2x is not being defined by the
vast majority of people as "bitcoin". Majority usage is the definition
of a word. I recommend SegWit2x advocates stop calling it "bitcoin"
without qualification because it is trolling for disruptions to their
mailing list. BTW Adam Back's response was in no way trolling or
disruptive or off-topic like others were saying.
