The bitcoin world was stunned yesterday by the sudden cancellation of the SegWit2X hard fork just days ahead of the date that was fixed for the fork to happen.
The fork had been proposed by a group of developers as a measure to increase the transaction capacity of the bitcoin network.
But ever since this plan was announced, there has been a lot of bad blood between this group of developers and the group of developers who are still with the main bitcoin network.
The main thing that had set apart this fork from the others before it was the lack of consensus between the competing groups of developers.
The other forks had the agreement of almost all the developers but this fork had been marked by a lot of bad blood in the bitcoin industry.
