I'm working on a piece for top Bitcoin publications on the upcoming hard fork. Just eager to hear what you support: bitcoin core or bitcoin unlimited and why? Would love to quote :)

Consistent debates and hard forks of the Bitcoin Blockchain is indicative of one massive trend: Mass adoption is coming. Popularity of Bitcoin is growing. As it does, the scaling debate will continue. Each provide their pros and cons, the real question is what is the intent or purpose of each fork. This most recent hard fork has the spellings more of greed than of actual purpose or need - a tale all too familiar in the crypto world. Bitcoin Blockchain needs to scale and advance, that we know - developers are best to start working as one and end the arguing or we risk flooding the market with thousands of Bitcoins confusing the new-to-crypto user and risking mass adoption. In my opinion, the door for another coin to overtake Bitcoin increases with each fork.
Bitcoin Unlimited will serve merely to add the size of btc blocks therefore increasing mining capacity and potential as for Bitcoin Core due to being the foundation of btc blockchain tech development improving it on so many levels remain the preferred solution for every major service provider and exchange. I would choose bitcoin core over unlimited anytime of the day! Hope this helps dearest friend ;)
The rift in the Bitcoin community whether Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin with our without SegWit2x is the real Bitcoin has the potential to create serious trust issues for Bitcoin. Where technical advances of the Bitcoin protocol are in general seen as a good thing, the community shouldn't commit the fallacy of believing that more sophisticated technology means wider adoption. Many people who discovered cryptocurrencies might not be technical enough to really understand the discussion but might be scared off by the outlook of dealing with three currencies claiming to be the 'real' Bitcoin.
