I'm always for the hardfork.
Significant improvements can be done. People just have to adapt. And they will if money is involved

Very interesting topic.

Thank you for the explanation!

Hard forks is a permanent divergence in the the block chain, commonly occurs when non-upgraded nodes can’t validate blocks created by upgraded nodes that follow newer consensus rules. While Soft forks is a temporary divergence in the block chain caused by non-upgraded nodes not following new consensus rules
