Time stamped chatlogs: Why Jihan and Jiang want to block segwit at all cost.

*edit* I changed the title from Verified to Time stamped, what I obviously meant was that the timestamp of back in December 2016 was verified. *edit*

I won’t write a full article, will just let the chatlogs speak for itself.

These are chatlogs from November/December 2016, we know that now they are signaling Segwit on Litecoin but for some reason still oppose it on Bitcoin.
