thanks that is interesting

I'm always for the hardfork.


Hello everyone, today I found an interesting article in coincodex about Hard Forks in Cryptocurrencies. In it, Dmitry Mishunin expresses his opinion on the usefulness of a hard fork. I'm not entirely sure, but he seems to be writing that hard forks prevent the possibility of a hacker attack. Is it so?

Hard forks and soft forks are essentially the same in the sense that when a cryptocurrency platform's existing code is changed, an old version remains on the network while the new version is created. Both forks create a split, but a hard fork creates two blockchains and a soft fork is meant to result in one.
