TL;DR. Bitcoin is designed to probabilistically select one permanent choice amongst many. Following this philosophy consequentially, a single Bitcoin chain, preserving the Bitcoin brand, can be achieved by making the extension of the SegWit2X chain conditional on the non-extension of the legacy chain, and vice versa. This condition is fully symmetric.
For those unfamiliar, SegWit is a Bitcoin protocol update that occurred in August 2017 in an attempt to ease the blockchain’s scaling woes. The update was part of the New York Agreement, a form of compromise between those who wanted to increase Bitcoin’s block size (big blockers) and those opposed to the idea.
A softfork is a change to the bitcoin protocol wherein only previously valid blocks/transactions are made invalid. Since old nodes will recognize the new blocks as valid, a softfork is backward-compatible. When a majority of miners upgrade to enforce new rules, it is called a miner-activated softfork (MASF). When full nodes coordinate to enforce new rules, without support from miners, it is.
