Nice fluff piece, not very convincing. First SW would be more than 12% if the Miners that voted for it would implement it. SW is a block size increase. What S2X is really about is making Bitcoin more centralized, neutering the open source community, and making block so large that users will not be able to afford to run one. People do not want this vision.
Most popular wallets today use centralized API servers to fetch blockchain data. The ones that use SPV are exceptional — BreadWallet and Android Bitcoin Wallet are the only popular SPV wallets I’m aware of, while Mycelium, Blockchain.info, Electrum, GreenAddress and AirBitz use the trusted-server model and not the P2P SPV.
There is no founded argument for scaling the block size. It’s a tacitly held assumption perpetuated by those that have no understanding of economics. Business and nefarious individuals trying to create a political lever that controls bitcoin’s inflation.
You will always be remembered for this.
