This week we’re talking forks. Forks, sporks, and chopsticks. Most of us in the cryptocurrency space have heard the term “fork”. But some may not exactly know what they are or how they work. Well, we don’t either but we do our best to explain them to you! Everyone who listens to us know that we aren’t experts of master engineers. But we do research so you don’t have to. Soft forks are done often to some of the huge coins without most people noticing. If a soft fork forks in the woods and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound? No, it does not. It’s digital code. It doesn’t make sound, silly. Hard forks, on the other hand, usually cause more of an uproar when the end up popular. People see “free coins” and lose their minds sometimes. Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic are examples. We dive deeper into how these forks take place, how they affect the network, and if they will be a frequent occurrence in the future of blockchain.
Sticking with the fork theme, our coin focus of the week is Bitcoin Cash. We take a page out of our man, Roger Ver’s book and spend half the podcast talking about Bitcoin Cash. One of the most famous hard forks of all time, this coin deserves a special place in the crypto history books. Some think it will take over Bitcoin and become the top cryptocurrency. Other people think that it’s a waste of time and won’t fix Bitcoin’s problems. We’re here to take on both sides. So, join us while we discuss our thoughts on the controversial cryptocurrency that has had an infamous time in the space.
