Thank you for the explanation!

Yes thanks for the explanation. it's interesting to recover some forgotten knowledge!

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:)

It seems like hard fork is better i was wondering what all can be done in soft fork, well thanks for the valuable information

Great explanation. Thanks
