Steem Theory: Up quarks, down quarks, soft fuarks and hard fuarks
WARNING: Not knowing the difference between the basic fundamentals of string theory and open source principles will not have any detrimental affects to your health or well being(I hope). I say this without any confidence whatsoever. But trust me, I'll survive until the day I die.
There is, on the other hand, a good chance that you will get fuarked- hard.
There are three types of people who may see negative affects today. 1. Whales will become less powerful. 2. Posts that gain most of their value from whale votes may not see the minnow votes offset the drop in value. People who are utilizing trails may see their voting power diminished 4 times faster than before.
In the end, this has absolutely nothing to do with quarks- A subject that I know nothing about.
Let's see if wikipedia can teach me anything:
"A quark (/ˈkwɔːrk/ or /ˈkwɑːrk/) is an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. Quarks combine to form composite particles called hadrons, the most stable of which are protons and neutrons, the components of atomic nuclei. A proton is composed of two up quarks, one down quark, and the gluons that mediate the forces "binding" them together."
My understanding from this is that these are some of the important building blocks of matter. Hey, that's pretty neat!
As it stands, I also don't know anything about the fuarking open source principles. Time to find out!
"A fork in software development refers to the event of an independent project spinning off from a software project." "With a softfork, only miners will have to upgrade, or else they will end up on the losing fork. Users and merchants can keep running older nodes, which will accept the newer blocks. With a hardfork, everyone (miners, users, and merchants) will need to upgrade to the new code."
To me this boils down to: There's no turning back from a hard fuark.
Thanks for joining me on my irrelevant fun learning experience!
