If BIP148 fails

…we have given over control of the network to miners, at which point bitcoin's snowballing centralisation will become unstoppable.

That is also the point that I throw in the towel. I'm nobody, not a dev, I don't run an exchange etc but I have evangelized about bitcoin for over 5 years and got many people involved and invested in the space.

There are many like me who understand what gave this thing value in the first place who may also abandon bitcoin should the community prove too cowardly or stagnant to resist Jihan and his cronies.
