Hi All!

If you happen to be running unpruned node please consider running an Electrum server to support BIP148. This will ensure BIP148 has light client support post fork if there happens to be two chains.

Electrum server requires additional 20GB on top of 120GB required by Bitcoin Core. It will take 1-2 days to sync on a HDD, probably faster on SSD. You will also need an open port for the light client to connect.

If you are running Linux instructions are here:

I've made one for Windows as well:

An interesting point to take note is that the creator of Electrumx is actually a BU supporter but well, you use whatever's available.
