Before we start speaking about soft, hard and other strange-used words, I’d like to give a short explanation of each term.
Blockchain protocol: the code convention which defines the connection, mining and transaction rules. To be a part of the network, you must comply with the protocol.
:point_right:Fork: the moment you have a protocol version which is different from the main one.
What is a hard fork
If we continue with the traffic example, hard work is basically a creation of a new parallel universe. With its own highways, drivers and blackjack.
If there was one driver who lived in Nebraska and had a Jeep - then now there is and additional “Driver Cash,” who lives in “Nebraska Cash” and has “Jeep Cash.” So, both drivers live separate lives in separate universes. But Nebraska Cash driver will never be able to visit his doppelganger or apply for a job in Nebraska - there is no portal between the realities. Sounds like a “Black Mirror” plot.
Let’s go back to crypto terms. After a hard fork, the previous version and the new one are completely split, there is no communication or transaction option between the two. Usually, the new version inherits all the historic transactions and, from now on, each version will have its own transaction history.
