NOB2X – List Of Companies Who Did Not Sign B2X or SegWit2x?

NoB2x is an informational website for the cryptocurrency community as we prepare for November’s fork controversy. Find out everything you need to know about this website today in our NoB2x.org review.

What Is NOB2X?

NoB2x.org is an informational website that features crucial information about breakdowns within the bitcoin community.

Specifically, NOB2X.org features a list of companies and organizations that did not sign the New York Agreement (NYA), also known as B2x or SegWit2x. The name of the website comes from “No B2x” – in case you haven’t figured that out already.

At the time of writing (August 2017), the list features dozens of names from across the industry, including everyone from Acinq to BitBay to Metaco and QuickBT.

The website also has a “needs clarification” section in the case where a company’s opinion on SegWit2x isn’t totally clear. Right now, both Huobi and OKCoin are listed under this section.

Here is a list of all of the opinions and standpoints available on NOB2X.org:

  • List of companies that did not sign the NYA (aka B2X or SegWit2X)
  • Needs clarification
  • Does not run full nodes
  • Maybe/unsure
  • Will support post fork

Breadwallet, for example, is listed under “Does not run full nodes”. Breadwallet is the most popular bitcoin wallet for iOS. Bittylicious, a large bitcoin broker in the UK, is listed under “maybe/unsure”, while Ledger Wallet, the popular hardware bitcoin wallet, is listed under, “Will support post fork”.

Who’s Behind NOB2X?

NoB2x.org originally got its data from a Reddit collection that was later posted on PasteBin.

There’s no further information about the creator of the website. However, you can make a change request at the website’s GitHub page – say, if you want to add a NYA signer to the list or change the status of a company/organization.

The only other clue we have is that the domain was registered on August 10, 2017.

The website has been posted onto Reddit’s /r/bitcoin subreddit a few times – usually to address the fact that the list of non-NYA-signers keeps growing.

What’s The Significance Of NoB2x?

We have another upcoming fork in the bitcoin blockchain. The fork is likely going to take place around November, and it’s not expected to cause major issues for the network. NoB2x.org seems to have been created by someone who is in favor of SegWit2X, and wants the bitcoin community to know that there is a long list of organizations who do not support the New York Agreement and have not signed it.

Why is any of this important? The implementation of SegWit2x has significant “intent” support from most mining pools around the world. However, that doesn’t mean the change will activate in the form outlined in the original New York Agreement. We have little economic support for SegWit2x and a growing list of individuals who openly oppose the concept, which means the coming weeks will be crucial for the bitcoin community.

The important thing to remember with this controversy is that the bitcoin network will get a SegWit upgrade no matter what. That upgrade is scheduled to take place before the end of August.

Meanwhile, SegWit2x supporters recently announced the timing of their bitcoin hard fork, including the block on which it will occur. SegWit2x supporters want their hard fork to become bitcoin’s dominant blockchain – although it’s unclear how any of this will play out.

Suffice to say that SegWit2x is a problematic scaling solution that has yet again left the bitcoin community divided. The last fork led to two versions of “bitcoin”, including Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). This fork in November could add a third version of bitcoin to the mix – and more confusion would be bad for widespread adoption.

In any case, you can keep track of the movement against SegWit2x by visiting NoB2x.org.
