Fork

Definition of "Fork"

In a blockchain, a situation in which two blocks are generated from the same parent block due to a change in protocol, either by accident or design. This can lead to two different chains. In most cases, consensus among miners is met to operate on one of the chains and abandon the other, but disagreement can lead to the two blockchains operating independently in the long term (as with ETH and ETC).
