Bitpay tried to deceive bitcore users and has broken the trust the Bitcoin Community had in them in the process

Bitpay recently wrote a blog post where they basically lied about an upgrade for Bitcore being about preparing for Segwit activation into operation, when in fact it was just an excuse to switch from its base going from Bitcoin Core to B2X(btc1), otherwise known as the closed doors New York Agreement that is no longer necessary to rush and that was never even wanted in context that it is preposterous that it has actual consensus from the Bitcoin Community.

Why is this so bad?

Apart from them blatantly lying about their motivation behind their post and this new upgrade. That since then has been edited with an addendum note at the bottom, which still don't excuses them from this lie. Their action to do so in the first place can be taken as unethical and borderline fraudulent as:

1.- They are not giving bitcore users option of upgrade. Meaning that you cannot choose an updated bitcore build that is based on Bitcoin Core.

2.- By forcing you into a bitcore based on B2X(btc1), they are putting you at risk by running unstable software that don't offers the proper support of protections to run it. One of said protections being that since they are aiming for a hard fork. And with this software having a high chance of splitting the chain. In the chance of a B2X altcoin being created from this event. There will be no replay protection whatsoever. Meaning that spent Bitcoin will also spend the B2X coin or spending the B2X will also spend Bitcoin. By default, Bitpay is causing bitcore users to cause a loss in one way or another.

3.- It is a contentious hard fork attempt. As such, it will be not supported by Bitcoin Core and most of the community. With Bitcoin 0.15 having an update that will ignore and block B2X (btc1) nodes.

Solutions?

One right now, it is to simply use the build made by Satoshi Labs instead, which can be found at: https://github.com/satoshilabs/bitcore-node

Because funny enough, before they deciding to do this "upgrade", they had pretty much left bitcore to stagnate and Satoshi Labs was who decided to step in and maintain the bitcore codebase.

Other solutions have also been put forth by Nicolas Dorier from NBitcoin. But those will take a lot more time. In the meantime, I cannot longer recommend anything from Bitpay and personally will stop using them and will instead advocate against them unless I see a dramatic backtrack from them and an apology to the Bitcoin Community they say to serve.
