It is my understanding that the Bitcoin Segwit2x (B2X) still has a small probability of happening. This is because a faction of miners still believes in it despite the major market players calling it cancelled. This would enable protection for Bitcoin (BTC) owners who are susceptible to chain spiral of death due to Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Since BTC has no Emergency Difficulty Adjustment, if there is another crazy spike in Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which in my opinion is likely, all buyers of Bitcoin (BTC) after the August 1 Bitcoin Cash (BCH) fork have no protection.

We are living in amazing times right now. This month of November 2017 is one that will go down in the history of Bitcoin as one of the most controversial, most dramatic, most bloody month in cryptocurrency history. Sometime in mid-November is the Segwit2x fork. This is a fork that increases the block size limit of the once heavily-change-resistant Bitcoin from 1mb to 2mb.
