Hard Fork

A hard fork is a change to the rules of a blockchain that makes previously invalid transactions valid, or vice versa. Once the hard fork rules go live it is possible for a block to be created on the new chain that cannot be created on the old chain under the old rules.

This then creates a fork in the blockchain, with the older blockchain continuing with the old rules, and the new blockchain continuing with the new rules.
