Soft forks as its name is simply a minute update with a small effect. Here, the soft one will be maintaining a single Blockchain and the split-up won't affect entirely in the system. Hard forks are however a game changer that will completely affect the system after the split up. Actually, there are two stages of this forked process,

1. Older version - before fork point & 2. New version - after fork point

Different versions of Fork Types

The hard fork is something that is strong and here, the coin will be splitting up into tow just like Bitcoin splits up into Bitcoin and Bitcoin Gold/Bitcoin cash. After and before the fork happens, the coin remains in the same amount of that of the ledger but may vary in actual existence. For every ledger in the digital coin, a snapshot will be taken up and all the information of the ledger will be captured and the calendar date of the block number will also be saved. With this information after the hard fork, exact compensation by means of free coins will be provided to the ledger but the transaction must be done beforehand of that of the fork. There are perfect cryptocurrency MLM Software that is capable of withstanding even in such conditions. Such cryptocurrency MLM Software will help to make the forks countable and thereby make necessary changes in the existing Blockchain protocol and thereby make user that it doesn't affect the business by any means.
