One major fact people seem to be overlooking with this upcoming 'pretend' fork is that the majority of exchanges have not made positive statements about splitting your coins for you, some have even said they won't, including BitMEX and Coinbase.
However, once we zoom into this situation, the only rational course of thinking is to assume that people will be removing their bitcoins from exchanges to their private wallets where they can split their Bitcoins during a potential fork.
This has been a point that I have not seen discussed anywhere, people are going to take their bitcoins out, the smart people anyway.
What will happen when there are tiny volumes of BTC?
How volatile will the alt coins be?
Not to mention, those bitcoins will likely be held for a few days to prevent replay attacks and other such... bizzare technical stuff...
I think Bitcoin volatility is the only tip of the iceberg....
Once you take the number one trading currency out of circulation... what will happen?
