[Bitcoin-segwit2x] We are all bitcoin

I did refer you to read the whitepaper – obviously I do not expect you to have read it by now, but I’ll just mention this now anyway. The most relevant Sybil resistant poll you are ever likely to come across is right in front of your eyes, aka the bitcoin blockchain.

Now when you get that time to read the whitepaper, you’ll learn that the consensus mechanism of the bitcoin network is 1CPU 1 vote, aka hashpower. Once you take that on-board, then it’ll dawn on you that the rest of your musings are simply, for lack of a better word, pointless.

It’s funny how you imply that "10,000 merchants of BitPay, millions of users of Blockchain.info<https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2FBlockchain.info&data=02%7C01%7Cpekatete%40hotmail.com%7C835d7c8b68f74d8d16aa08d513129f53%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636435893046308935&sdata=qewfsZAUyWNSAzZ9w7UQdPfJhwYQH48vzdUwjl1TJNM%3D&reserved=0>, Bitcoin.com<https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2FBitcoin.com&data=02%7C01%7Cpekatete%40hotmail.com%7C835d7c8b68f74d8d16aa08d513129f53%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636435893046308935&sdata=Qpnn%2BQlaJfMzy5O75XbT181wd95SNgGdO3OM8t71X5E%3D&reserved=0>, Xapo, Coinbase, millions of buyers and sellers of OpenBazar“ are in favour of b2x?

The only sybill resistant poll which I know (even created by data of users from Coinbase!!!) shows that most of the coinbase customers are not in favour of b2x?

How funny this is.

If you actually look into Twitter, there are only around a thousand people who has the "no2x" tag. Not all of them are trolling. However, people who state that those are everything that counts, especially on a segwit2x mailing list, is certainly trolling and does not worth any people's attention.

Bitcoin will be what majority calls it. Period.

In the grand scheme of things, 1,168 responders is not exactly representative of the bitcoin community, is it? But that number, for a sample size, falls in the range of what is referred to as statistically irrelevant. It seems like you’ll have to do even more reading up!

1,168 with 30x difference in responses is very significant. Show me
the twitter bubble where like-minded SegWit2x supporters show their
support.
