It is evident a lot of people have high hopes for SegWit2x. This upcoming hard fork will give Bitcoin holders another free token to play around with. Right now, the futures market for this fork is appreciating in value. On CoinCodex, the SegWit2x futures trade for over $900. This is slightly higher compared to the Bitfinex rates, but it shows things may turn out quite spectacularly.
Even though SegWit2x hasn’t activated yet, price speculation is already in full effect. That is not entirely surprising, as airdropped coins are of great interest. All Bitcoin holders will be eligible for tokens, assuming they take the proper precautions. Several exchanges have opened up futures markets for this future altcoin as well. So far, the price is fluctuating wildly, as is to be expected.
