It's a very bad day for people who bought Bitcoin SegWit2 futures...

Most people aren't even aware that investments in Bitcoin SegWit2 had already started.

On October 17th HitBTC proudly announced they were giving their users an advance access to the market:

"B2X token markets are open on HitBTC! Trade B2X with BTC, ETH and USDT.
B2X is not available for deposits and withdrawals, because SegWit2x is not activated yet.
The original BTC ticker remains with the original Bitcoin."

They wrote in a blog post.

Now, with their money locked in and untradeable - SegWit2 futures are in a nose dive following today's announcement that Bitcoin SegWit2 is canceled for the time being.  Down 85% at the time of publishing this article.

SegWit2x futures today.
That's the risk you take when you buy something doesn't yet exist.
