"The Segwit2x effort began in May with a simple purpose:  to increase the
blocksize and improve Bitcoin scalability. At the time, the Bitcoin
community was in crisis after nearly 3 years of heavy debate, and consensus
for Segwit seemed like a distant mirage with only 30% support among miners.
Segwit2x found its first success in August, as it broke the deadlock and
quickly led to Segwit’s successful activation. Since that time, the team
shifted its efforts to phase two of the project - a 2MB blocksize increase
...

As fees rise on the blockchain, we believe it will eventually become
obvious that on-chain capacity increases are necessary. When that happens,
we hope the community will come together and find a solution, possibly with
a blocksize increase. Until then, we are suspending our plans for the
upcoming 2MB upgrade."

Bitcoin is rallying on this news, and $8,000 is definitely within reach. It's an odd situation, because speculators first believed that bitcoin was rallying BECAUSE of the hardfork and the opportunity for holders to receive two coins, BTX and B2X. Now that the fork is suspended, holders will not receive separate cryptos, and the price is still rallying.

Perhaps there is new faith and security in consensus that is fueling this most recent rally?

Feels good having over half my port in OmiseGo!

I have a feeling this is only the beginning. I was looking for $10 by end of year, but we might see that this week! My next long term target, $15 =)

My only regret is that I missed the buying opportunity at sub-6.

I'm expecting a crash below $5,000 for sure. No matter how high we got before this hardfork for SegWit2X, the damage to bitcoins reputation has already been done!

Still time to buy your favorite cryptos alts!

This whole hardfork hype is just nonsense imo.. The true value of bitcoin cash is really starting to stand out to me.. I really think we will see it's value continue to grow and steal market cap from BTC.

Bitcoin is like a gateway drug, it brings people to the space - but once they start learning and reading, they realize there is a huge world out there full of opportunities.
