Welcome to the “Blockchain Forks” with Paul Puey. This presentation was delivered on Friday, August 30th 2019.
This session will help you understand the implications of a hard fork, what exactly it means, and how it affects the average bitcoin and cryptocurrency user. This session is suitable for a non-technical crowd and will go over the differences between hard forks such as Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, and Ethereum Classic. You will get a thorough understanding of what replay attacks are and the various forms of replay protection that can and have been implemented to minimize the impact of hard forks. Most importantly, you will learn how to prevent possible loss of funds with proper pre- and post-fork precautions on various wallet types.
