SegWit2x got canceled, and with it probably the most heated “battle” in the Bitcoin space thus far draws to a close. There are many lessons to be learned from this ordeal as well as some other forks that are happening around Bitcoin – what constitutes “consensus” in the community, how will the future forks be handled and so on. One important aspect I haven’t seen discussed as much currently is the ongoing issue of fork-proof replay protection – a feature that caused some controversy by its absence in SegWit2x and made Bitcoin Gold a laughing stock when they created a bounty for it very close to their forking date.
