Soft Fork

Definition of "Soft Fork"

A blockchain protocol change in which only previously valid blocks or transactions are made invalid -- not the full extent of the chain from the invalid block up until the present. Requiring only a majority of miners to upgrade and enforce the new rules, soft forks are backwards compatible since even nodes running pre-soft-fork versions of the protocol will recognize new blocks as valid.
