traveller:
Thank you for the explanation! So does this mean with a soft fork, the users dont have to do anything, but with a hard fork they need to update a software? I still don't quite understand when a hard fork needs to happen/ when a soft fork needs to happen. Can anyone maybe explain why each ones happen? Thanks in advance:)
