In the process of trying to learn about cryptocurriencies, I just came across this video: (I have put screen shots below)
In the video the author is reporting on a forum entry he found from Aug 2, 2017 where an unknown person is warning about a plan to destroy Bitcoin and replace it with Bitcoin Cash. What I found particularly interesting was that this person said segwit 2x wouldn't happen. This was back at the beginning of August.
These are screen shots of the forum entry on the video:

As I mentioned up front, I'm in the process of trying to learn this stuff, so I have no idea if there is any merit here, but thought I'd put it out there to see what people who have experience might know or think about this. And I suppose if there is truth to it, anyone who sees this can act accordingly.
