Cryptocurrencies are developing and improving, and there is a tendency that hard forks of the coins occur at newly created blocks.

A soft fork is a change to the protocol that restricts the ruleset enforced by full nodes that upgrade to enforce the soft fork rules, while a hard forkis a change to the protocol that loosens the ruleset enforced by full nodes. Hard fork is the changes to the programming of the coin that create incompatibilities between the older and newer version.
