- The New York Agreement requires 80% signalling, which seems unlikely to happen
- Miners stated they will support it if its technologically mature, but in its current form it is rushed and poorly reviewed/tested
- Miners said they will support it if its deployed by the community, but that is unlikely to happen for reason no. 2
Its as if The New York agreement is intended to fail and keep the status quo, where as BIP148 is better since all it needs is 20% hashrate which is more realistic.
