Too Long; Didn't Read

Following the signing of the <a href="https://medium.com/@DCGco/bitcoin-scaling-agreement-at-consensus-2017-133521fe9a77" target="_blank">New York Agreement</a> this May and successful activation of SegWit, a lot of rumours have circulated within the Bitcoin and wider crypto community about the potential of a second hard fork coming this November. According to those in favour of increasing the block-size, the contract signed in New York in May should guarantee the second fork’s occurrence. However, as there remains considerable disconnect within the space and many signers seem to be reneging their previous commitment to upgrade, it is unclear whether this chain split will take place at all.
