Hey John -
Every proposal starts with one person or group. I didn’t say anything about ‘an agreement’ in this article, nor did I sign the NY Agreement. I’m just describing how the proposal works and why I think its a good one.
I’m writing this article to help people understand the thinking behind Segwit2x. Whether this HF goes through or a future one does, is independent. As you can read, I think this method to scale is a good one.
It’s a bit circular to attack this article for not having 100% consensus when the purpose of this article is to build understanding and consensus.
