A ‘fork’ in a crypto community has a specific meaning revolving around changing the blockchain protocol. Forks can be scary, like a rift in the network, and you don’t want people thinking you’re causing a rift when you definitely are not.
I think they are using the “fork” thing to easily explain to their aimed market. Ie, they are alluding to the Bitcoin split which is commonly known as “fork” but that is not what is happening here.
Very true! I feel this can be more defined by a “soft fork” or “hard fork” though. You definitely reminded me of the lesser of the two which does mean to initiate a protocol change that could result in peoples wallets not receiving/sending correctly. This is NOT what we will be doing as we are not affiliated with the Peercoin team. Good eye though my friend!
So @BitcoinAir whats going on here?
Alright you guys,
I have given it some sufficient time for people to take note of it and submit their vote. It has been chosen that we will include the Peercoin community in the Airdrop and we will fill you all in as it goes. For more information please find our social links below.
