You are of course welcome to withdraw support for SegWit2x, but your statement below is not accurate.  I have an email from you on Sunday, May 21 at 8:40 pm ET confirming support of the final, full statement that was published on May 23rd.

Also, as a reminder, I was approached about adding Wayniloans to the agreement, not the other way around, so I have no idea what you were told.

Subject: [Bitcoin-segwit2x] Wayniloans on SegWit2x

Dear all,

On Wayniloans part or our business is achieved thanks to Bitcoin, and on May we agreed to a sentence to reach consensus for the good of the ecosystem. This sentence was later changed to a longer agreement without our notice, and it was known as the New York Agreement (NYA).

At the time we didn't know that existing developers wouldn't support it, or that most Latin American Bitcoin users, our customers, would view it as an contentious proposal.

Also, without mandatory replay protection (not opt-in) on SegWit2x, we wouldn't be able to operate the crypto part of our business without risk of missing funds or legal actions.

So with existing conditions we can no longer be part of what later became the NYA.
