The price of Bitcoin has recovered due to the fact that the Support for SegWit fork has declined

On Tuesday, November 7, the price of Bitcoin decreased to $7,000 due to the conflict regarding the SegWit fork. The market continued to show support for the fork, while the Bitcoin community rejected it due to its closed-source development.

However, on Wednesday, November 8, Bitcoin recovered to a price of $7,468.48 as the conflict went quieter for a short time and even managed to reach $7,500 on some cryptocurrency exchanges. Nevertheless, the community still objects to the hard fork, thinking it would split the chain.

Charlie Lee, the father of Litecoin and a former Coinbase executive, posted a tweet that Nick Szabo has publicly objected SegWit2x.

Vladimir Lialine, the founder of Twixsoft, a Bitcoin Mining and Trading company, developer of Blockchain-based solutions for banking, the founder of  Honeypotz, and a solution developer of Blockchain digital assets integrity verification “Everexpay”, an Ethereum powered P2P money transfer software wallet, expressed an opinion to Coinidol.com that “the price will probably get a bit higher, but there is risk of a healthy pullback.”

He added: 

“People should pay attention to LiteCoin, as a possible hedge to BitCoin price, but also LiteCoin should be traded at about 1/4 of Bitcoin price... Once institutional investors realize the value of LiteCoin, we will see a major move up to about $1200-1700 of its price range…”
