What is a hard fork?

Modified on Sat, 18 Feb 2023 at 09:23 PM

Hard fork is a permanent divergence of a blockchain with the new set of rules where all the participants have to upgrade their software if they want to continue participating and validating new transactions. Basically, instead of starting from scratch, the Bitcoin Cash currency has used the Bitcoin transaction history before the fork and future Bitcoin Cash transactions will be recorded on a separate blockchain with the new rules.
